2-(4,5-Dihydro-1H-imidazol-2-yl)-2-ethyl-2,3-dihydrofuro[3,2-b]pyridine was synthesized in eight steps starting from 3-hydroxy-2-methylpyridine. The key step was a cyclization of a 2-chloromethyl-3-butyroxypyridine derivative. The target molecule is an aza analogue of efaroxan, a potent and selective antagonist of α2-adrenoceptors.
