A practical route was developed for synthesizing the C-7 substituent of DQ-113 (6, 5-amino-7-[(3S,4R)-4-(1-aminocycloprop-1-yl)-3-fluoropyrrolidin-1-yl]-6-fluoro-1-[(1R,2S)-2-fluorocyclopropan-1-yl]-1,4-dihydro- 8-methyl-4-oxoquinolin-3-carboxylic acid), a new quinolone antibacterial agent for serious infections caused by Gram-positive pathogens. The key step was the intramolecular Horner-Wadsworth-Emmons reaction. In addition, the yield of the final aromatic nucleophilic substitution reaction was improved.
