Finally, a method of making medazepam from 4-chloro-N-methylaniline is suggested. The last is reacted with ethyleneimine in the presence of aluminum chloride, giving N-(4-chlorophenyl)-N-methylethylenediamine (5.1.43). Acylation of the resulting product with benzoyl chloride gives the respective amide (5.1.44), which cyclizes into the desired medazepam (5.1.40) using phosphorous oxychloride [44,45].
Various modifications of the described methods have been suggested [46,47]. Medazepam is a daytime tranquilizer. It exhibits an anxiolytic, myorelaxant, and anticonvulsant action. This drug relieves the feeling of worry, restores emotional calmness, and has a stabilizing effect on the vegetative nervous system. Medazepam is used in neurosis, psychopathy accompanied by excitement, stress, elevated irritability, insomnia, and functional neurosis of the cardiovascular system. Synonyms for this drug are nobrium, tranquirax, azepamid, and others.
