Abstract: Belzutifan (MK-6482) is a first-in-class oral hypoxia-inducible factor 2α (HIF-2α) inhibitor used for the treatment of patients with renal cell carcinoma associated vonHippel-Lindau (VHL) disease. The program achieved FDA breakthrough designation in 2020 and was approved in 2021 for VHL associated renal cell carcinoma. The molecule has a unique structure, includinga highly substituted indanone with three contiguous chiral centers, two of which are secondary alkyl fluorides. A big challenge in the installation of this functionality is an oxidation of theindanone to install a chiral benzylic alcohol, which originally requires five consecutive chemical steps to achieve. This presentation details our extensive advances in synthetic methods and strategydevelop a scalable process, including novel biocatalytic direct enantioselective hydroxylation that forges the desired C-O bond in a single step.
