Pyrrolopyridine derivatives for the treatment of HIV1-infection were synthesized by 10 step reactions. Methyl 2-(3-bromo-7-(4-chlorophenyl)-1,5-dimethyl-1H-pyrrolo[3,2-b]pyridin-6-yl)-2-(tert-butoxy) acetate converted efficiently into the corresponding 1H-pyrrolo[3,2-b]pyridin-6-yl)acetic acid derivatives by Suzuki coupling reaction. Present procedure provides short reaction times and good to excellent yields for a wide range of compounds, including pyrrolopyridine scaffolds. 7-Halogenated 1H-pyrrolo[3,2,b]pyridine acetic acid derivatives of final products showed good activity inthe HIV-1 IN inhibition test, while the other derivatives showed relatively low activity.
