Asymmetric induction in copper (I)-catalyzed
intramolecular [2 + 2] photocycloaddition: Synthesis of enantiopure cyclobutane derivatives

 

IPC: Int.Cl.8 C07C

Asymmetric induction in copper (I)-catalyzed intramolecular [2+2] photocycloaddition of 1,6-dienes to produce enantiopure oxa-bicyclo[3.2.0]heptane derivatives has been achieved. A novel anion-induced cleavage of the tetrahydrofuran ring in these oxa-bicyclo[3.2.0]heptane derivatives has led to a convenient access to the synthetically useful cis-1,2-disubstituted cyclobutanes in enantiomerically pure form.

Synthesis, antimicrobial and antiinflammatory activities of 1,3,4-oxadiazoles linked to naphtho[2,1-b]furan

 

IPC: Int.Cl.8 C07D

Condensation of naphtho[2,1-b]furan-2-carboxyhydrazide 1 with different aromatic aldehydes affords the corresponding arylidene derivatives 2a-h. These compounds undergo

Mannich bases 6a-h by treatment with  formaldehyde and appropriate  aromatic  amines. The selected  compounds have  been screened for their antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory ativities. The compound 4f has exhibited considerable antimicrobial activity and the compound 4c showed significant anti-inflammatory activity.

Synthesis, insecticidal and antimicrobial activities of some heterocyclic derivatives of quinazolinone

 

IPC: Int.Cl.8 C07D

Some new 4-phenyl-2,3-dihydro-6-(substitutedaminoethyl)-10-iodo[1,2,4]-triazino[2,3-c]-quina-zolin-5-ones 6-14 have been synthesized from 4-(phenyl-2,3-dihydro-6-methyl-10-iodo [1,2,4]-triazino[2,3-c]quinazolin-5-one 5 by introducing different heterocyclic nuclei. Compounds 5 and 6-14 have been screened for insecticidal, anti-fungal and antibacterial activities. Compound 4-phenyl-2,3-dihydro-6-(b-naphthyl-aminoethyl)-10-iodo[1,2,4]-triazino[2,3-c]-quinazolin-5-one 14
has been found to be the most potent compound of the present study which shows mortality of insects at 190.6 min while standard compounds exhibit at 280 min at a concentration of 5 g/L. Moreover, this compound also possesses anti-bacterial activity. The structure of these compounds have been elucidated by IR, 1H NMR, mass spectroscopy and elemental analysis.
