A novel one pot room temperature ionic liquid mediated synthesis of 1,5-benzodiazepine ribo­furanosides


A novel one pot ecofriendly synthesis of 7-substituted/7,8-disubstituted-2,2,4-trisubstituted-1-(2′,3′,5′-tri-O-benzoyl-β-d-ribofuranosyl)-2,3-dihydro-1,5-benzodiazepines has been accomplished stepwise, i.e. reacting o-phenylenediamine and a ketone in the first step followed by addition of β-d-ribofuranose-1-bromo-2,3,5-tribenzoate. The yields (72-90%) of the targeted compounds are excellent.

Facile synthesis of acyclic analogues of carbo­cyclic nucleoside as potential anti-HIV pro-drug


Microwave induced montmorillonite K10 clay catalyzed Michael addition of sulphur nucleophile, (4-oxo-butyl)-dithiocarbamic acid 1 to 4-arylidene-5(4H)-oxazolones 2a-j followed by ring transformation of the resultant Michael adducts 3a-j which then undergo intramolecular nucleophilic attack on 2 with the simultaneous cleavage of the oxazolone ring to yield 4a-j in solvent-free conditions. The control Aldol condensation of compound 4a-j with HCHO gives compound 5a-j, which upon selective reduction with NaBH4 gives the title compound 6a-j.
