Title: Imidazo[1,2-a] pyridine derivatives and their application as pharmaceuticals
Abstract:Imidazo[1,2-a] pyridines of the formula: ##STR1## and their acid addition salts in which Y represents a hydrogen or halogen atom or a C.sub.1-4 alkyl radical, Z represents a naphthyl radical or a radical ##STR2## in which each of X.sub.1 and X.sub.2 independently of one another is a hydrogen or halogen atom, a C.sub.1-4 alkoxy radical, a C.sub.1-6 alkyl radical or CF.sub.3, CH.sub.3 S--, CH.sub.3 SO.sub.2 --, --NO.sub.2, --NH.sub.2 or --NHCOCH.sub.3, and each of R.sub.1 and R.sub.2 independently of one another represents a hydrogen atom, a straight or branched C.sub.1-5 alkyl radical which is unsubstituted or substituted by one or more halogen atoms or hydroxyl, --N(C.sub.1-4 alkyl).sub.2, carbamoyl or C.sub.1-4 alkoxy radicals, allyl, propargyl, a C.sub.3-6 cycloalkyl radical, benzyl, or phenyl, not both R.sub.1 and R.sub.2 being hydrogen, or --NR.sub.1 R.sub.2 represents a heterocyclic ring containing from 3 to 6 carbon atoms, or a heterocyclic ring of the formula ##STR3## in which X is O, S, CHOR' or >N--R, R' being hydrogen or benzyl and R being hydrogen, a C.sub.1-4 alkyl radical, or phenyl which is unsubstituted or substituted by methoxy or a halogen atom, which may be made from the corresponding acids, have valuable pharmacological properties, especially anxiolytic, anti-anoxic, sleep-inducing, hypnotic and anticonvulsant properties.
Inventor(s): Kaplan; Jean-Pierre (Bourg la Reine, FR), George; Pascal (Vitry sur Seine, FR)
Assignee: Synthelabo (Paris, FR)
Application Number:06/313,601
