A fast and highly efficient method for the synthesis of tertiary amines in aqueous medium


A facile and highly efficient method for the synthesis of tertiary amines by the reaction of secondary amines with benzylic bromides and 1,1˘-dibromo p/o- xylenes in aqueous dioxane and NaOH have been developed. The reactions dually promoted by the base in short time (15 min.) at ambient conditions in aqueous medium.

High stereoselectivity in the Diels-Alder reaction of substituted anthracenes: Reactions of 1-succini- midoanthracene and 1-phthalimidoanthracene with maleic anhydride


1-Succinimidoanthracene undergoes Diels-Alder  reaction with maleic  anhydride to give mainly the anti adduct suggesting that the steric factors play dominant role in deciding the anti/syn stereoselectivity.1-phthalimido-anthracene also gives mainly the anti adduct with maleic anhydride. The configurations of the compounds have been established by preparing the corresponding imide derivatives of the anhydride adducts and observing the interactions between the imide substituent and the 1-substituent.

Synthesis, antimicrobial and insecticidal activity of some new cinnoline based chalcones and cinnoline based pyrazoline derivatives


4-Methyl-3-acetyl cinnoline has been used as a precursor to synthesize some new cinnoline based chalcones 3a-l. Reaction of chalcone with hydrazine hydrate in acetic acid yields the cinnoline based pyrazoline derivatives 4a-l. The compounds have been evaluated for their antimicrobial and insecticidal activity.
