Synthesis of novel heteroarenes based [1,2,3]-triazoles via click chemistry and their evaluation for antibacterial activity


Novel heteroarenes based [1,2,3]-triazole derivatives 8a-h and 9a-f have been assembled via click chemistry between the terminal alkynes and heteroarylazides at ambient temperature. Some of these novel compounds have been evaluated for their in-vitro antibacterial efficacy and results are reported.

Synthesis and antibacterial evaluation of benzazoles tethered dihydro[1,3]oxazines


In light of interesting antimicrobial properties associated with benzazoles and dihydro-1,3-oxazine ring system, a series of novel benzazole tethered dihydro[1,3]-oxazine derivatives has been synthesized via one-pot methodology and screened for their in-vitro antibacterial efficacy. Some of the synthesized molecules have shown significant antibacterial activity with low IC50 values in the range of 0.208-1.106 mg/mL.

Conventional and microwave-assisted synthesis of pyrazole derivatives and screening for their antibacterial and antifungal activities


5-{2′-Chloro-6′-methyl-(3′-quinolyl)}-3-(substitutedphe­nyl) pyrazole 3a-j, 5-{2′-chloro-6′-methyl-(3′-quinol­yl)}-3-(sub­stitutedphenyl) pyra­zole carboxamide 4a-j and 5-{2′-chloro-6′-methyl-(3'-quinolyl)}-3-(substituted­phenyl) pyrazole carbo­thiamide 5a-j have been synthe­sized from 3-(2'-chloro-6'-methyl(3'-quinolyl))-1-(substi­tuted­phenyl)prop-2-en-1-one 2a-j. Both the reactions have been carried out by conventional and microwave methods. All the synthesized compounds 3a-j, 4a-j and 5a-j have been tested for their antimicrobial activity and the structures of the synthesized compounds have been established on the basis of elemental analysis and spectral data.

Microwave mediated solvent free synthesis of
2-arylimidazolines from aldehydes using a solid base catalyst


2-Arylimidazolines have been synthesized in solvent free condition using catalytic amount of a solid base obtained by fusing a mixture of Al2O3 and KNO3 and by exposure of the mixture to microwave irradiation. The imidazolines have been obtained in good yield with short reaction time and simple recovery. Ketones are found to be unreactive.

Facile synthesis of some new steroidal pyrazoline and 1,3,4-oxadiazole


Title compounds, 3β-[(3-methyl-5-oxo-2-pyrazolin-1-yl)­carbonyl- methoxy]cholest-5-ene 4, 3β-[5-phenyl-1,3,4-oxadiazol-2-yl] methoxycholest-5-ene 5, 3β-[5-(4′′-chlorophenyl) -1,3,4-oxadiazol-2-yl]methoxycholest-5-ene 6 and 3β-[5-(4′′- ethylphenyl)-1,3,4–oxadiazole-2-yl)methoxycholest-5-ene 7 are prepared by the cyclization of cholest-5-en-3β-O-acetyl hydrazide 3 using methyl acetoacetate, benzoic acid, 4-chlorobenzoic acid and 4-ethylbenzoyl chloride in presence of phosphorous oxychloride through conventional heating. Compound 5 has been obtained by two different ways.

An efficient synthesis of 3-bromoflavones under solvent free conditions using grinding technique


Selective bromination of 1-(2-hydroxyphenyl)-3-phenyl­propane-1,3-diones has been carried out with ammonium bromide and ammonium persulphate at room temperature using grinding technique under solvent free conditions to give 2-bromo derivatives which on cyclodehydration with p-toluenesulphonic acid under grinding conditions give 3-bromoflavones. Also, flavones on bromination using above mentioned conditions give 3-bromoflavones directly.

Convenient synthesis of Carvedilol utilizing 3-(9H-carbazol-4-yloxy)-1-chloropropan-2-yl phenyl carbonate as a key intermediate


Convenient synthesis of pharmaceutically important moiety Carvedilol, 1 (β-adrenergic blocking agent) has been reported utilizing 3-(9H-carbazol-4-yloxy)-1-chloropropan-2-yl phenyl carbonate 8 as a key intermediate. The synthetic scheme involves the reaction of intermediate 8 with 2-(2-methoxy phenoxy)­ethanamine 5 by using N,N-Dimethyl-4-amino­pyri­dine (DMAP) in N,N-dimethyl­formamide (DMF) give 3-(2-(2-methoxyphenoxy)ethyl)-5-((9H-carbazol-4-yloxy)methyl)oxa­zoli­din-2-one 7 via 1-(9H-carbazol-4-yloxy)-3-chloropropan-2-yl 2-(2-methoxyphenoxy)ethylcarbamate 6. The resulting compound 7 is further converted to the required Carvedilol and this approach can be useful for the preparation of many β-amino alcohols without formation of Impurity B.
