2-Amino-5-arylthiomethyl-2-oxazolines and their intermediates 1-amino-3-arylthio-2-propanols showed significant anorectant activity but were less active than d-amphetamine.  The most active compd. in the series was 2-amino-5-(phenylthiomethyl)-2-oxazoline (I) [41136-03-2], which at 46 mg/kg orally decreased food intake by mice by 62% in the 1st hr after administration.  To synthesize I, thiophenol [108-98-5] was reacted with epichlorohydrin [106-89-8] in the presence of NaOH, and the resulting epoxide was reacted with NH3 to yield 1-amino-3-phenylthio-2-propanol [35550-43-7], which was reacted the CNBr and cyclized to I.

I uploaded the article in PDF format to my page and linked it from whitin your post, so that we have both the citation/abstract and the link in the same post  ;)
