Selective halogenation of hyaluronan and partial halogen substitution by methotrexate led to 6-chloro-6-deoxy-6-O-methotrexylhyaluronan, a potential antitumor drug. The remaining halogen could be further substituted by a second organic carboxylate, leading to mixed esters. 6-O-Acetyl-6-O-methotrexylhyaluronan and 6-O-butyryl-6-O-methotrexylhyaluronan were thus synthesized and characterized by NMR spectroscopy.

Abstract

Selective halogenation of hyaluronan and partial halogen substitution by methotrexate led to 6-chloro-6-deoxy-6-O-methotrexylhyaluronan, a potential antitumor drug. The remaining halogen could be further substituted by a second organic carboxylate, leading to mixed esters. 6-O-Acetyl-6-O-methotrexylhyaluronan and 6-O-butyryl-6-O-methotrexylhyaluronan were thus synthesized and characterized by NMR spectroscopy.
