ACE Inhibitors are medications that belong in the class of medications known as antihypertensive medications. ACE Inhibitors work on the ReninAngiotensin-Aldosterone System

Benazepril, brand name Lotensin (Novartis), is a medication used to treat high blood pressure (hypertension), congestive heart failure, and chronic renal failure. Upon cleavage of its ester group by the liver, benazepril is converted into its active form benazeprilat, a non-sulfhydryl angiotensinconverting enzyme (ACE) inhibitor.

ACE Inhibitors work in the lungs to inhibit Angiotensin Converting Enzyme from turning Angiotensin I into Angiotensin II. These medications cause an increase of bradykinin, which inhibits kinase II, another name for Angiotensin Converting Enzyme. (Lehne, 2007, pg. 464) Blood Pressure is decreased due to a decrease in blood volume, peripheral resistance, and cardiac load. ACE Inhibitors, inhibit vasoconstriction and release of aldosterone which inhibits the retention of sodium and water.

EARLIER Preparation of Benazepril hydrochloride (CAS 86541-74-4): The reaction of 2(R)-hydroxy-4-phenyl butyric acid ethyl ester (I) with trifluoromethanesulfonic anhydride in dichloromethane gives the corresponding triflate (II), which is then condensed with the amino benzazepinone (III) by means of NMM in the same solvent to provide the target benazepril.


Benazepril (CAS REGISTRY No. 86541-75-5) first disclosed inUS 4,410,520 is one of the well-known ACE inhibitors and is used for the treatment of hypertension. Chemically, Benazepril, is (3S)-1-(carboxymethyl-[[(1(S)-1(ethoxycarbonyl)-3-phenylpropyl]amino]-2,3,4,5-tetrahydro1H-[1]benzazepine-2-one.

Benazepril is administered orally in the form of hydrochloride salt (CAS REGISTRY No. 86541-74-4) represented by formula (I).
The preparation of benazepril disclosed in US 4,410,520 , J. Med. Chem. 1985, 28, 1511-1516, and Helvetica Chimica Acta (1988) 71, 337-342, as given in scheme 1, NEXT SLIDE involves reductive amination of ethyl 2-oxo-4-phenyl butyrate (IV) with sodium salt of (3S)-3-amino-1-carboxymethyl-2,3,4,5tetrahydro-1 H-benzazepin-2-one (III).

In example 12 of US 4,410,520 , the crude benazepril (II) obtained in a diastereomeric ratio of SS: SR=70:30 was dissolved in dichloromethane and treated with HCl gas to obtain benazepril hydrochloride. The benazepril hydrochloride of formula (I) obtained as a foam was crystallized from methyl ethyl ketone to obtain in a SS: SR=95:5 diastereomeric ratio. Benazepril hydrochloride was further purified by recrystallization from a mixture of 3-pentanone/methanol (10:1), melting point: 188-190 C. Alternatively, in example 27 of US 4,410,520 , benazepril hydrochloride was purified by refluxing in chloroform, filtering, and washing first with chloroform and then with diethyl ether. The melting point of benazepril hydrochloride obtained as per this example is 184-186 C.

An alternative process disclosed in US 4,785,089 involves nucleophilic substitution of (3S)-3-amino-1-tbutoxycarbonylmethyl-2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-1Hbenzazepine-2-one (V), using the chiral substrate ethyl (2R)-2-(4-nitrobenzenesulfonyl)-4-phenyl butyrate (VI) in presence of N-methylmorpholine (scheme 2). NEXT SLIDE The benazepril t-butyl ester (IIa) obtained in a diastereomeric ratio of SS: SR=96:4 was hydrolyzed to benazepril (II) and converted to hydrochloride salt by treating with HCl gas in ethyl acetate. The crystalline suspension of benazepril hydrochloride in ethyl acetate was diluted with acetone and filtered to obtain in a diastereomeric ratio of SS: SR=99.1:0.9. Further purification by refluxing in ethyl acetate afforded benazepril hydrochloride in a diastereomeric ratio of SS: SR=99.7:0.3, melting point of 181 C.

The Merck Index., 12th edition reports benazepril hydrochloride crystals obtained from 3pentanone+methanol (10:1), melting point 188-190 C The crystallization methods taught in the prior art does not consistently produce a constant diastereomeric composition of SS:SR diastereomer. This is evident from the variation in the melting points of the benazepril hydrochloride reported in three different working examples, which varies between 181 to 190C. The variation in diastereomeric composition of a pharmaceutical substance is not desirable as it would affect its efficacy. Hence there is a need for a crystallization process that consistently produce a constant diastereomeric composition of SS diastereomer in greater than 99.8%.

Coming to the crystalline form, it is well known in the art that the solid form of a pharmaceutical substance affect the dissolution rate, solubility and bioavailability. The solid form may be controlled by process employed for the manufacture of the pharmaceutical substance. In particular the process of purification of the solid substance by crystallization is used to control the solid form (Organic Process Research & Development, 2003, 7, 958-1027). It has been found that the crystalline form of benazepril hydrochloride obtained from processes of prior art documents is designated as crystalline Form A as evident from the following documents.

In a monograph published by Al-badar et al in Profiles of Drug Substances, Excipients, and Related Methodology, Vol. 31, 2004, p117-161; benazepril hydrochloride prepared by the process disclosed in US 4,410,520 , and J. Med. Chem. 1985, 28, 15111516, has been characterized by powder X-ray diffraction pattern having 2 peaks at 6.6, 9.9, 11.9, 13.7, 14.0, 14.9, 15.3, 16.4, 17.3, 18.9, 19.6, 20.2, 20.9, 21.5, 22.2, 25.2, 25.5, 26.4, 26.6, 27.1, 27.9, 29.8, 30.4, 31.0, 32.6, 33.3, 33.8, 34.4, 35.5, 38.2, 39.9, 43.9, 48.9. The major peaks are at 6.6, 9.9, 11.9, 13.7, 14.9, 16.4, 17.3, 18.9, 19.6, 20.2, 20.9, 21.5, 25.2, 25.5, 26.4, 26.6, 27.9, 31.0, and 32.6. WO 2004/013105 A1 also discloses that by following the processes of the prior art mentioned above, crystalline benazepril hydrochloride is isolated in a form designated as Form A having a powder X-ray diffraction pattern with 2 values at 6.7, 10.1, 12.0, 13.8, 15.1, 16.4, 17.4, 19.0, 19.6, 20.2, 20.9, 21.0, 25.3, 25.5, 26.4, 26.6, 27.6, 28.0, 31.0, 32.7.

WO 2004/013105 A1 discloses that benazepril hydrochloride Form A may be prepared from a concentrated solution of the benazepril hydrochloride in a solvent selected from C1-C10 alcohol, N,Ndimethylformamide, N-methylpyrrolidone by adding an anti-solvent selected from C4-C12 alkane or C1C10 acetate, preferably, hexane or ethyl acetate. WO 2004/013105 A1 in Example 5 describes a process of making crystalline form A of benazepril hydrochloride by passing HCl gas into a solution of benazepril free base in diethyl ether and filtering the resulting suspension. Similarly, in Example 6, the benazepril hydrochloride was dissolved in water free ethanol and the resulting solution was added to heptane at 20 C to obtain the crystalline Form A.

Further, WO 2004/013105 A1 , mentions a list of solvents and anti-solvents that can be used to make benazepril hydrochloride crystalline Form A. However, there is no enabling disclosure and the document is silent on the diastereomeric purity of the crystalline form A obtainable by the process disclosed. The processes of crystallization and/or recrystallization disclosed in the prior art do not consistently produce benazepril hydrochloride with constant diasteromeric content as evident from the variation in the melting point of the crystalline benazepril hydrochloride obtained from crystallization from various solvents.

The reaction of 2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-1H-(1)benzazepin-2-one (I) with PCl5 in hot xylene gives 3,3-dichloro-2,3,4,5-tetrahydro1H-(1)benzazepin-2-one (II), which is treated with sodium acetate and reduced with H2 over Pd/C in acetic acid yielding 3chloro-2,3,4,5-tetrahydro-1H-(1)benzazepin-2-one (III).

A new synthesis of CGS-14824A is given: The reaction of 3bromo-1-phenylpropane (I) with KCN gives 4-phenylbutyronitrile (II), which is hydrolyzed to the corresponding butyric acid (III). The cyclization of (III) with polyphosphoric acid affords 1tetralone (IV), which is brominated to 2-bromo-1-tetralone (V) and treated with hydroxylamine to give the oxime (VI). The Beckman rearrangement of (VI) yields 3-bromo-2,3,4,5tetrahydro-1H-(1)benzazepin-2-one (VII), which is treated with sodium azide to afford the azide derivative (VIII). The N-alkylation of (VIII) with ethyl bromoacetate (IX) by means of KOH and tetrabutylammonium bromide in THF gives the Nalkylated azide (X), which is reduced by catalytic hydrogenation to the corresponding amine (XI). The hydrolysis of the ester group of (XI) with NaOH yields the free acetic acid derivative (XII), which is finally reductocondensed with ethyl 2-oxo-4phenylbutyrate (XIII) by means of sodium cyanoborohydride.
