Microwave enhanced Claisen-Schmidt condensation: A green route to chalcones


Chalcones have been synthesized under microwave irradiation by Claisen-Schmidt condensation between 4-piperidino­acetophenone and appropriately substituted benzeldehydes using NaOH-Al2O3 under solvent free conditions. All the compounds have been screened for antimicrobial activity by the cup-plate method.

Facile thermal rearrangement of Lorazepam and Oxazepam


Lorazepam 1, a very well known anti-convulsant undergoes facile thermal rearrangement at about 110°C to 6-chloro-4-(o-chloro­phenyl)-2-quinazolinecarboxaldehyde 10 in almost quantitative yield. Oxazepam 2 which is structurally similar, requires higher temperature for the similar rearrangement to give 6-chloro-4-phenyl-2-quinazolinecarboxaldehyde 11.
