We synthesized the racemates of the five presumed metabolites (1b-f) of (S)-(--)-N-tert-butyl-4,4-diphenyl-2-cyclopentenylamine hydrochloride (FK584, S(--)-1a), a novel agent for the treatment of overactive detrusor syndrome, in order to confirm the structures of the metabolites and also to evaluate their inhibitory activity against detrusor contraction. (+/-)-N-tert-Butyl-4-(4-hydroxyphenyl)- and 4-(4-hydroxyphenyl)- and 4-phenyl-2-cyclopentenylamines (1b--e) were synthesized via 5-(4-methoxyphenyl)- and 5-(4-benzyloxy-3-methoxyphenyl)-5-phenyl-2-cyclopenten-1-one (9g, h), respectively. Compounds 1b-f prepared in this study were identical with the metabolites in human urine in gas chromatography-mass spectrometry and analytical HPLC. The inhibitory activity of compounds 1b-f against detrusor contraction in vitro induced by electrical field stimulation in guinea-pigs was less potent than that of FK584.
