Abstract

3,7-Diazabicyclo[3.3.1]nonan-9-ones having aryl rings in positions 2 and 4 with systematically varied substituents were synthesized using a double Mannich procedure. Radioligand binding assays were performed to measure the affinity of the compounds to the mu-, delta-, and kappa-opioid receptors. The affinity of all 2, 4-diphenyl-substituted 3,7-diazabicyclo[3.3.1]nonan-9-ones to the mu- and delta-receptors was found to be low. In contrast, with exception of the nitro- and cyanophenyl-substituted compounds, most of the diazabicycles showed considerable affinity for the kappa-receptor. In particular, the m-fluoro-, p-methoxy-, and m-hydroxy-substituted compounds have an affinity in the submicromolar range. Due to solubility problems in aqueous media, salts of HZ2 were synthesized. The methiodide shows high kappa-affinity and may, thus, be a promising candidate for development of a peripheral kappa-agonist, e.g. for use in the case of rheumatoid arthritis.
