4-Methoxy-PCP Synthesis Variation Questions

In the above outline, the author mentions that substituting piperidine for pyrrolidine would create an end product equally as potent as 4-Methoxy-PCP without passing through the Schedule 2 substance PCC.  If such a substitution were made, what would the new intermediate product be?  What would the resulting product be?  Would any other changes need to be made to the synthesis?

Pyrrolidine instead of Piperidine

The intermediate would look like compound #3, and the product like the rightmost substance. The "ArMgX" is 4-Methoxy-phenylmagnesium bromide in your case, so the "Ar-" of the product would be a 4-Methoxyphenyl ring.


Ignore the (  )x in the picture - it's irrelevant.

1. Do you believe that the author is correct in stating the end product would be equally as potent as 4-Methoxy-PCP?

2. What software did you use to render these images?

Yes, you can read up on general structure-activity relationships here:

First off, the author of the synthesis claims 4-Methoxy-PCP to posses a potency of about 70% of PCP's, while Table IV in the second article you listed claims it to have a potency of 10% of PCP's; a serious discrepancy.  Does anyone have enough experience to give a third opinion?  Also, after reading the text, I believe that the author of the synthesis may also have been wrong in that the piperidine substitution would not yield a product equally potent or even with the same qualitative effects.  It would be disappointing to go through all the trouble of creating such a compound only to find it has a "street use to cause a barbiturate-like sedation."  Do you agree with my interpretation?

No, that's the wrong substituent on the wrong ring

No, that's the wrong substituent on the wrong ring...

Table IV: PCP with a Methyl group in the 4-position of the piperidine ring.
4-meo-pcp.html: PCP with a Methoxy group in the 4-position of the benzene ring.
