MW assisted synthesis of some pyrazoles containing benzotriazole moiety: An environmentally benign approach


The present paper reports MW assisted synthesis of pyrazoles containing benzotriazole moieties 4a-n by cyclocondensation of substituted chalcones 3a-n with hydrazide of benzotriazole 2 in presence of glacial acetic acid (GAA). The synthesized compounds have been characterized by their IR, 1H NMR and mass spectral studies. These compounds have also been evaluated for their antibacterial and antifungal activities against various microbes.

Synthesis and antimicrobial activity of 2-cyclopropyl [1,8]naphthyridine-3-carboxylic acid (4-phenyl-2-thioxo-thiazol-3-yl)-amides, [1,3,5]triazine, [1,3,4]­thia­diazole-2-thiol, [1,2,4]triazole-3-thiol and cou­marin derivatives


2-Cyclopropyl-[1,8]naphthyridine-3-carboxylic acid ethyl ester 1 reacts with 99% hydrazine hydrate, to yield 2-cyclopropyl-[1,8]naphthyridine-3-carboxylic acid hydrazide 2, which further reacts with carbon disulphide in the presence of potassium hydroxide solution to yield compound 3. Compound 3 reacts with 99% hydrazine hydrate to offer 4-amino-5-(2-cyclopropyl-[1,8]naphthyridin-3-yl)-4H-[1,2,4]triazole-3-thiol 4. Compound 4 is converted to 5 by reaction with phenacyl bromides. On other hand compound 4 on treatment with oxalyl chloride in the presence of triethyl amine provides 6. Compound 3 on treatment with acetic acid in water gives compound 7. On the other hand compound 3 on treatment with phenacyl bromides provides compound 8. Compound 1 reacts with guanidine hydrochloride to yield compound 9 which reacts with aromatic nitriles to offer compound 10.
