Photochemical studies on b-ionyl hydrazone

Irradiation of degassed n-heptane solution of (E,E)-β-ionone hydrazone results in geometric isomerisation of its >C=N–linkage whereas in non-degassed condition (E)-5,6-epoxy-b-ionone is formed.

Structural feature indenture for estrogen analogs as anticancer agents: De novo and Hansch Approach

The quantitative models derived for the study illustrates the significance of the b-hydroxy group of 17th position for the drug–enzyme interaction and allowed hydrogen-bonding interaction to estrogenic receptor in optimal manner (free rotation) as compared to oxo group (restricted orientation). The results of the study also reveal the necessity of sulfonamide moiety at 3rd position of estrogen. Additionally, presence of smaller substituents at 2nd position will be conducive for the activity.

Microwave enhanced heterocyclization: A convenient procedure for antimicrobial 1,5-benzothiazepine compounds

A series of 2,5-di hydro- 4- [1΄-(o-chloro phenyl)-3΄-methyl-5΄-pyrazolidene azomethine]-2-(substituted phenyl)-1,5 benzothiazepines 7a-j have been synthesized using environmentally benign procedure and evaluated for their antimicrobial activity. Neat reactants are subjected to microwave irradiation (MWI) under solvent-free-condition. The observed yields and enhancement in reaction rates are due to the solvent free conditions coupled with microwave usage. Structures of the synthesized compounds have been elucidated on the basis of their elemental analyses and spectral data.
