Design and synthesis of some azole derivatives containing 2,4,5-triphenyl imidazole moiety as anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial agents


A series of azole derivatives (5a-d, 6a-d and 7a-d) have been synthesized from (2,4,5-triphenyl-imidazole-1-yl)-acetic acid hydrazide under various reaction conditions. Elemental analysis, IR, 1H NMR and mass spectral data confirmed the structure of the newly synthesized compounds. All the synthesized azole derivatives have been investigated for their anti-inflammatory, antibacterial and antifungal activities and showed moderate to good activity.

Synthesis of novel 3, 5-disubstituted-4,5-dihydro­isoxazoles and 3,4,5-trisubstituted isoxazoles and their biological activity


1,3-Dipolar cycloaddition of nitrile oxide generated from substituted pyridinyloxy benzaldoximes with styrene or α,β-unsaturated ketones produces a series of 3,5-disubstituted-4,5-dihydroisoxazoles and 3,4,5-trisubstituted isoxazoles. On the other hand C-chlorooxime reacts with α-unsaturated ketones yielding 3,4,5-trisubstituted isoxazoles. The compounds are tested for antimicrobial activity and action on isolated frog heart.

Synthesis and antimicrobial activity of 1-(5-methyl-3-isoxazolyl)-3,6-diaryl-4-thioxo-1,3,5-tria­zi­nan-2-ones


Treatment of 3-benzalamino-5-methylisoxazoles 1 with ammo­nium thiocyanate in hot acetic acid affords the corresponding N-isothiocyanato(phenyl)methyl-N-(5-methyl-3-isoxazolyl)­ami­nes 2a-j in excellent yields. N-Isoxazolyl-α-amino­iso­thiocyanates 2a-j on reaction with aryl isocyanates undergoes cyclization to give the corresponding isoxazolyl-4-thioxo-1,3,5-triazinan-2-ones 3a-l in good yields. The compounds 2a-j and 3a-l have been screened for their antimicrobial activity.

Synthesis and antimalarial activity of novel N-{2-[2-(2-aminoethoxy) ethoxy] ethyl}-7-chloroquino­lin-4-amine and its derivatives


A number of N-{2-[2-(2-aminoethoxy)ethoxy]ethyl}-7-chloroquinolin-4-amine derivatives have been prepared by condensation of N-{2-[2-(2-aminoethoxy) ethoxy] ethyl}-7-chloroquinolin-4-amine with substituted aldehyde and characterized by IR, ¹H and ¹³C NMR, and mass spectral data. These compounds have been screened for in vitro antimalarial activity using the Sybr Green assay of P. falciparum in culture and the heme detoxification based Heme-HRP assay. 7-Chloro-N-[2-(2-{2-[(2,4-difluoro benzyl) amino] ethoxy} ethoxy) ethyl] quinolin-4-amine has been found to be the most effective with IC50 value 60 μM (in Heme-HRP assay) and 48 nM (in P. falciparum culture assay). These values compare well with the potency of chloroquine in the respective assays.

Synthesis and antimicrobial activity of bis-[2-imino-3-[5-(3-methylbenzo[b]furan-7-yl)-1,3,4-thia­diazol-2-yl]-5-(arylidene)-1,3-thiazolan-4-one]me­thanes


A series of novel bis-[2-imino-3-[5-(3-methylbenzo[b]furan-7-yl)-1,3,4-thiadiazol-2-yl]-5-(arylidene)-1,3-thiazolan-4-one]­­me­thanes 6a-j have been synthesized and their structures confirmed by IR, NMR, MS and elemental analyses. All the synthesized compounds have been tested for their antimicrobial activity against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, and fungi. Among the synthesized compounds, 6c, 6e, 6f and 6g are found to be the most active against Bacillus subtilis, Bacillus sphaericus, Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiella aerogenes and Chromobacterium violaceum. Similarly, these compounds show potent antifungal effect against Candida albicans, Aspergillus fumigatus, Trichophyton rubrum and Trichophyton mentagrophytes.
