Title: 1H-imidazo[4,5-c]quinolines and their use as bronchodilating agents
Abstract:1H-imidazo[4,5-c]quinoline which are bronchodilators. Pharmacological methods of using the compounds as bronchodilators, pharmaceutical compositions containing the compounds, and synthetic intermediate for preparing the compounds are also described.
Inventor(s): Gerster; John F. (Woodbury, MN)
Assignee: Riker Laboratories, Inc. (St. Paul, MN)
Filing Date:Nov 15, 1985
Application Number:06/798,386
Claims:1. A compound of the formula ##STR6## wherein R.sub.1 is selected from the group consisting of hydrogen, alkyl of one to about ten carbon atoms, hydroxyalkyl of one to about six carbon atoms, benzyl, (phenyl)ethyl and phenyl, said benzyl, (phenyl)ethyl or phenyl substituent being optionally substituted on the benzene ring by one or two moieties independently selected from the group consisting of alkyl of one to about four carbon atoms, alkyl alkanoate wherein the alkyl moiety contains one to about four carbon atoms and the alkanoate moiety contains two to about four carbon atoms, alkoxy of one to about four carbon atoms and halogen, with the proviso that if said benzene ring is substituted by two of said moieties, then said moieties together contain no more than 6 carbon atoms; R.sub.2 is selected from the group consisting of hydrogen, trifluoromethyl, hydroxyalkyl of one to about six carbon atoms, aminoalkyl of one to about four carbon atoms, alkanamidoalkyl wherein each alkyl radical is one to about four carbon atoms, benzylthio, mercapto, alkylthio of one to about four carbon atoms, and alkyl of one to about eight carbon atoms, with the proviso that when R.sub.2 is mercapto and R.sub. 1 is alkyl, R.sub.1 is alkyl of one to four carbon atoms; R.sub.4 is selected from the group consisting of hydrogen, chloro, alkoxy of one to about four carbon atoms, hydroxy, alkylamino of one to about four carbon atoms, dialkylamino wherein each alkyl radical contains one to about four carbon atoms, alkyl of one to about four carbon atoms, phenylthio, alkylthio of one to about four carbon atoms, and morpholino, with the proviso that when R.sub.2 is mercapto, alkylthio or benzylthio, R.sub.4 is hydrogen or alkyl; and each R is independently selected from the group consisting of alkoxy of one to four carbon atoms, alkyl of one to four carbon atoms, and halogen, and n is an integer from 0 to 2, with the proviso that if n is 2, then said R substituents together contain no more than 6 carbon atoms; or a pharmaceutically acceptable acid addition salt thereof.

2. A compound according to claim 1 wherein R.sub.4 is hydrogen.

5. The compound 1-isobutyl-1H-imidazo[4,5-c]quinolin-4-ol according to claim 1.

6. A compound of the formula ##STR7## wherein R.sub.6 is selected from the group consisting of alkyl of one to about ten carbon atoms, hydroxyalkyl of one to about six carbon atoms, acyloxyalkyl wherein the acyloxy moiety is alkanoyloxy of two to about four carbon atoms or benzoyloxy, and the alkyl moiety contains one to about six carbon atoms, benzyl, (phenyl)ethyl and phenyl, said benzyl, (phenyl)ethyl or phenyl substituent being optionally substituted on the benzene ring by one or two moieties independently selected from the group consisting of alkyl of one to about four carbon atoms, alkyl alkanoate wherein the alkyl moiety contains one to about four carbon atoms and the alkanoate moiety contains two to about four carbon atoms, alkoxy of one to about four carbon atoms and halogen, with the proviso that if said benzene ring is substituted by two of said moieties, then said moieties together contain no more than 6 carbon atoms; R.sub.8 is selected from the group consisting of hydrogen, trifluoromethyl, hydroxyalkyl of one to about six carbon atoms, aminoalkyl of one to about four carbon atoms, alkyl of one to about eight carbon atoms and alkanamidoalkyl wherein each alkyl radical is one to about four carbon atoms; R.sub.9 is hydrogen or methyl; and each R.sub.5 is independently selected from the group consisting of halogen, alkoxy of one to about four carbon atoms and alkyl of one to about four carbon atoms, and n is an integer from 0 to 2, with the proviso that if n is 2, then said R.sub.5 substituents together contain no more than 6 carbon atoms.

7. A compound of the formula ##STR8## wherein each R.sub.5 is independently selected from the group consisting of alkyl of one to about four carbon atoms, alkoxy of one to about four carbon atoms and halogen, and n is an integer from 0 to 2, with the proviso that if n is 2, then said R.sub.5 substituents together contain no more than 6 carbon atoms; R.sub.6 is selected from the group consisting of hydroxyalkyl of one to about six carbon atoms and cyclohexylmethyl; and R.sub.7 is selected from the group consisting of alkyl of one to about four carbon atoms and hydrogen.
