The super base approach to flurbiprofen: an exercise in optionally site-selective metalation

A superior route to the analgesic flurbiprofen has been devised. Key steps are the selective deprotonation of 3-fluorotoluene with tert-butyllithium in the presence of potassium tert-butoxide (LIT-KOR) at the 4-position and the selective deprotonation of the 4-methyl-2-fluorobiphenyl with lithium diisopropylamide in the presence of potassium tert-butoxide (LIDA-KOR) at the benzylic position. Depending on the reagent and the substituent pattern, the 3- and 5-positions of 2-fluorobiphenyls can also be specifically attacked. [on SciFinder (R)]
