Stereoselective preparation of a key intermediate toward the synthesis of nelfinavir


A stereoselective synthesis of a key intermediate toward the synthesis of the potent HIV protease inhibitor, nelfinavir is described using an intramolecular sulfilimine as a nucleophile to functionalize an olefin as the key step.

Studies on Lewis-acid mediated domino reaction of N-protected bromomethylindoles with arenes/heteroarenes


Detailed study on Lewis-acid mediated domino reaction of N-protected 2/3-bromomethylindoles with arenes and hetero­arenes is reported. Two distinct mechanistic pathways for the formation of carbazoles starting from 1-phenylsulfonyl/1-tert-butoxycarbonyl bromomethylindoles have been proposed.

Exploring structure indenture of some amino­pyrazolopyridine ureas as potent VEGFR/PDGFR multitargeted kinase inhibitors: A QSAR approach


QSAR models have been developed for a series of aminopyrazolopyridine ureas as KDR, VEGFR and PDGFR kinases inhibitors. The study suggests that the KDR inhibitors have significant correlation with hydrophobic, steric (principle moment of inertia of Y-component) and thermodynamic (polar surface area and bend energy) properties of the molecule.

Regioselective NaBH4 and DIBAL-H reductions of 3,4-dimethoxyhomopiperonyl­phthalimide: Concise and efficient synthesis of nuevamine and isonuevamine


Facile synthesis of nuevamine and isonuevamine has been reported via the regioselective reduction of hindered and unhindered carbonyl groups of 3,4-dimethoxyhomo­piperonyl­phthalimide, respectively using the sodium borohydride and diisobutylaluminum hydride, followed by an acid catalyzed intramolecular dehydrative cyclization pathways. The chemistry involved in obtaining the regioselectivity has been discussed in brief.

Synthesis of some N,N-diethoxyphthalimido-5-(substitutedphenyl)-3-methyl-1,3a,4,5-tetrahydro­pyrazolo[3,4-c]pyrazole-4-spiro-5-substituted-1H-indole-2-one


N,N,N-Triethoxyphthalimido-3,5-dimethyl-4,7-dihydro-1H-pyrazolo[4′,3;5,6]pyrano[2,3c] pyrazole-4-spiro-5-substituted-1H-indole-2-one, 3a,b and N,N-diethoxyphthalimido-5-(substitutedphenyl)-3-methyl-1,3a,4,5-tetrahydro- pyrazolo­[3,4-c]pyrazole-4-spiro-5-substituted-1H -indol-2-one, 6a-f have been synthesized from isatine 1a,b and 5-methyl-2,4-dihydro-3H-pyrazol-3-one through multiple step approach. Synthesized compounds are characterized by analytical and spectral studies.
