|Filing Date:||May 20, 2011|
|Claims:||1. A method of preparing a compound of formula (I): ##STR00029## said method comprising: reacting (1aR,5S,8S,10R,22aR)-5-tert-butyl-14-methoxy-3,6-dioxo-1,1a,3,4,5,6,9,10,- 18,19,20,21,22,22a-tetradecahydro-8H-7,10-methanocyclopropa[18,19][1,10,3,- 6]dioxadiazacyclononadecino[11,12-b]quinoxaline-8-carboxylic acid ##STR00030## with (1R,2S)-1-Amino-N-(cyclopropylsulfonyl)-2-vinylcyclopropanecarboxamide hydrochloride ##STR00031## |
2. The method of claim 1, wherein the reacting is conducted in the presence of at least one reagent selected from the group consisting of diisopropylethylamine (DIEA), dimethylamino pyridine (DMAP) and O-benzotriazol-1-yl-N,N,N',N'-tetramethyluronium tetrafluoroborate (TBTU).
3. The method of claim 1, wherein the reacting is conducted in the presence of diisopropylethylamine (DIEA), dimethylamino pyridine (DMAP) and O-benzotriazol-1-yl-N,N,N',N'-tetramethyluronium tetrafluoroborate (TBTU).
4. A method of preparing a pharmaceutically acceptable salt of a compound of formula (I): ##STR00032## said method comprising: reacting a compound of formula (I) with a metal alkoxide to form a salt or the compound of formula (I).
