1H and 13C NMR studies of some 1,1-bis(carbethoxy)-2-aryl-4-phenyl/(4-chlorophenyl)-4-oxobutane and their derivatives


The 1H and 13C NMR spectral features of 1,1-bis(carbethoxy)-2-aryl-4-phenyl/(4-chlorophenyl)-4-oxobutane 1a-j and their carbonyl derivatives 2a-e are discussed in the light of their diastereotopic characteristics and preferred conformational structures for 1 and 2 are proposed.

Synthesis of 2-(4-substitutedsulfonyl piperazin-1-yl-methyl)-3-aryl-quinazolin-4(3H)-one


Reaction of 2-(chloromethyl)-3-arylquinazolin-4 (3H)-one 3 with N-BOC piperazine 4 in acetonitrile using K2CO3 and KI followed by deprotection of BOC group in IPA HCl, gives 3-aryl-2-(piperazin-1-yl)quinazolin-4(3H)-one 6. The latter on treatment with benzene/methane sulfonyl chloride in DCM in the presence of TEA at RT, results in the formation of 2-(4-benzene/methanesulfonyl piperazin-1-yl-methyl)-3-aryl-quinazolin-4(3H)-one 7. Alternatively, 7 can also be prepared from the reaction of 4-benzene/methane sulfonylpiperazine 9 with 3, in the presence of K2CO3 and KI.

Synthesis, antimicrobial and insecticidal activity of some  4H-1,2,4 triazole derivatives


1-(Substituted benzylidene) semicarbazide has been used as a precursor to synthesize some important biologically active 3-substituted phenyl, 4H-1,2,4 triazole derivatives. Reaction of ethanolic solution of schiff's base of substituted aromatic aldehyde 1 with ethanolic solution of FeCl3.6H2O (1 mole FeCl3.6H2O in 10 mL ethanol)  yields the 4H-1,2,4 triazole-3-derivative 2. Several derivatives have been synthesized and screened for their antibacterial, antifungal and insecticidal activity.

Synthesis and characterization of some sulfonamide based bis-sydnones and their in vitro antimicrobial activity


4-Sulfonamide substituted novel sydnones have been synthesized. All new compounds have been characterized by spectral data as well as elemental analysis and have been tested for their antibacterial activity against gram positive S. pneumoniae and S. aureus, and gram negative bacteria E. coli and P.aeruginosa. Some of the synthesized compounds show excellent antimicrobial activity.

Synthesis and antimicrobial screening of some 3-[4-(3-aryl-1-phenyl-1H-pyrazol-4-yl)-6-aryl-pyridin-2-yl] and 4-methyl-3-phenyl-6-[4-(3-aryl-1-phenyl-1H-pyrazol-4-yl)-6-aryl-pyridin-2-yl] coumarins


Various 3-[4-(3-aryl-1-phenyl-1H-pyrazol-4-yl)-6-aryl-pyridin-2-yl] coumarins 4a-l and 4-methyl-3-phenyl-6-[4-(3-aryl-1-phenyl-1H-pyrazol-4-yl)-6-aryl-pyridin-2-yl]coumarins 5a-f  have been synthesized by reacting 3-coumarinoyl methyl pyridinium bromide 1a,b and 4-methyl-3-phenyl-6-coumarinoylmethyl pyridinium bromide 2 with pyrazolyl chalcones 3a-f respectively under Krohnke’s reaction conditions. All the synthesized compounds 4a-l and 5a-f have been fully characterized and screened for their antimicrobial activity.
