GSK1360707F is a new and potent selective triple reuptake inhibitor.[1] structurally related to amitifadine and NS-2359 (GSK-372,475).


Synthesis of GSK1360707F: WO 2008031772 
  1. BOC Protecting group.
  2. Enolization and trapping with triflate group (cf Comins' reagent).
  3. Suzuki reaction
  4. Reduction (only 1 mol eq. LAH because N-BOC can be reduced to N-Me)
  5. Trifluoroacetic acid (TFA) removal of protecting group.
  6. Simmons–Smith reaction cyclopropanation.
  7. Williamson ether synthesis (c.f. NS patents & paxil).


GSK1360707F has recently (2013) been tested on baboons (Papio anubis) & humans for transporter occupancy.[2]

until recently was under development for the treatment of major depressive disorder; its development was put on hold for strategic reasons.
