Biaryl amides were discovered as novel and subtype selective M1 muscarinic acetylcholine receptor agonists. The identification, synthesis, and initial structure-activity relationships that led to compounds 3j and 4c, possessing good M1 agonist potency and intrinsic activity, and subtype selectivity for M1 over M2-5, are described.
