Abstract: 

Background: Nowadays, the major causes of death are attributed to vascular disease, of which the most important form is atherosclerotic heart disease. Some prevalent causative factors are smoking, stress, obesity, and high level of lipids in serum. Atherosclerotic disease could be treated either by medical therapy or diet. Clofibrate and its analogs are highly effective drugs used to reduce serum cholesterol.
Materials and methods: It was an explorative study. Having the isobutiric acid, 1,3 dibromo propane, and 2,5 dimethyl phenol purchased from Fluka company and isobutanol, dioxane, dimethyl sulfoxide, diisopropylamin and tetrahydrofuran purchased from Merck company, the procedure was performed.
Results: Gemfibrozil [5-(2,5 dimethyl phenoxy) 2,2 di pentanoic acid] was synthesized through Williamson method. Its reported yield and purity were 70% and 80%, respectively.
Conclusion: Method that is explained in this article, is by far the most suitable way of gemfibrozil synthesis due to its simplicity, price, yield (70%), purity(80%), and scale up.
