Synthesis of 4-hydroxycinnamic acid 6 and its N-hydroxysuccinimide ester 8 has been carried out in high yield on solid support. Further development allowed the synthesis of 4-hydroxycinnamoyl CoA 1 in excellent overall yield. The utility of solid phase as a method for the synthesis of 4-hydroxycinnamic acid derivatives was demonstrated by the synthesis of a number of compounds including the NMDA receptor antagonists, N-(phenylalkyl)cinnamides 9 and 10.
