The thesis presented new syntheses of Hsp70 agonists. Chapter 1 overviewed neurological disorders, the current therapeutic and diagnostic approaches for the diseases. Chapter 2 touched upon heat shock protein (Hsp) and the molecular chaperone, Hsp70. Chapter 3, 4, and 5 presented efforts in the design for more potent analogues than MAL1-271, a Hsp70 agonist. While Chapter 3 showcased the synthesis of the new dihydropyrimidinone (DHPM) molecules, Chapter 4 focused on the preparation for the thiadiazine analogues. All of these analogues were evaluated in a cellular Huntington’s disease model in the laboratory of Prof. J. Brodsky at the University of Pittsburgh and resulted in several lead structures. Chapter 5 reviewed the preliminary results on a synthesis of thiadiazine-containing macrocycles. Initial explorations involved the use of ruthenium-based catalysts to construct a 10-membered ring
