An unknown impurity detected in small amounts during the heat treatment of artesunate-amodiaquine bilayer tablets was purified by semipreparative HPLC and identified by MS and NMR as the tetrahydrofuranyl acetate-rearranged derivative of anhydrodihydroartemisinin. When anhydrodihydroartemisinin was treated with a Fe(II) salt in acetonitrile-water solution, the same product was generated, together with an isomeric 2-deoxy-4α-hydroxy-anhydrodihydroartemisinin derivative, as expected from the usual homolytic radical opening of the endoperoxide bond previously described for other artemisinin derivatives.
