l-Proline as an efficient catalyst for synthesis of N-heterocyclic chalcones as potential antibacterial agents


The condensation of 4-hydroxy-3-acetyl-1H-quinoline-2-one 1 and substituted benzaldehydes 2a-i in DMSO solution at room temperature yields quinolone chalcone derivatives 3a-i. l-Proline has been found to be an efficient catalyst for this condensation between 1 and 2. Only 5 mol % of the catalyst is necessary to achieve good yield of the products. Reactions proceed smoothly with variation of the substituents.

Microwave assisted eco-friendly protocol for one pot synthesis of 2,3-dihydroquinazolin-4(1H)-ones in water


An efficient one pot l-proline catalyzed multicomponent synthesis of 2,3-dihydro-4(1H)-quinazolinones has been achieved involving isatoic anhydride, aldehyde and amine or ammonium acetate in water under microwave. The use of l-proline, water and MW has promising reaction response, such as environmentally benign conditions, short reaction time, excellent product yields, and simple work-up of the products.

A novel versatile strategy for synthesis of new series of  thiazolo-triazine N-nucleosides


An efficient protocol associated with readily available starting materials, mild conditions, excellent yields, and a broad range of products in synthetic chemistry has been established for synthesis of thiazolo-triazine N-nucleoside derivatives. Result obtained showed considerable enhancement of yields and reduction in time. Furthermore, integrated process minimizes the mechanical loss of the intermediate during process for isolation.

Photochemical synthesis of 9-methoxy-5-thiophenyl-12H-benzo[a] xanthene-12-one


Photochemical oxidation of 7-methoxy-3-phenyl-2-[(E)-2-(thiophen-2-yl)ethenyl]-4H-chromen-4-one 4 in methanol containing iodine in the presence of air afforded 9-methoxy-5-thiophenyl-12H-benzo[a] xanthene 5. The structure of the photo-products has been confirmed by IR, UV-Vis, 1H NMR and mass spectra. A suitable mechanism has been proposed.

Synthesis and antiulcer activity study of disubsti­tuted alkyl 4-(substituted)-2,6-dimethyl-1-((4-oxo-3-(4-sulfamoylphenyl)-2-thioxo-3,4-dihydroquinazo­lin-1(2H)-yl)methyl)-1,4-dihydropyridine-3,5 dicar­bo­xylate


A series of disubstituted alkyl 4-(substituted)-2,6-dimethyl-1-((4-oxo-3-(4-sulfamoylphenyl)-2-thioxo-3,4-dihydroquinazolin-1(2H)-yl) me­thyl)-1,4-dihydropyridine-3,5 dicarboxylate 3a-h have been prepared by reaction of 4-(4-oxo-2-thioxo-1,2-dihydroquinazolin-3(4H)-yl) benzene sulfonamide with para-formaldehyde and 1,4-dihydro­pyridine derivatives. The compounds are characterized and screened for their antiulcer activities.
