Although malaria is currently among the diseases with the greatest impact causing the death of 1 to 3 million people each year in developing countries, the development of new antimalarial drugs has been neglected since the 1970s. The therapy has a limited number of drugs available for the treatment of this pathology, among which stand out the quinoline compounds functionalized derivatives. Modern organometallic reagents such as i-PrMgCl.LiCl and the recently developed mixed lithium magnesium amides, have been successfully applied in the functionalization of aromatic and heterocyclic compounds. However, its reactivity with important substrates such as quinolines, has not been studied properly. Thus, the main aim of this project is to apply new organometallic reagents in the preparation of new functionalized quinolines with potential antimalarial activity. The synthesis of a novel hybrid molecular planned with pharmacophoric groups of two drugs useful against malaria (chloroquine and pyrimethamine) is also proposed as well as the preparation of chloroquine analogues substituted with different functional groups.
