Synthesis of novel thiazolo[5,4-d]pyrimidines


2-Methylsulphanyl-5-aminothiazole-4-carboxamide 1 has been used as a convenient precursor for the synthesis of new  thiazolo[4,5-e][1,2,4-triazolo][4,3-c] pyrimidines 5 and the corresponding tetrazolo analogue 7. A mesoionic 8 seems to exist along with 7. Interesting heteroaryl-thiazolopyrimidine motifs have also been prepared via suitably substituted thiazolo[5,4-d]pyrimidines.

Synthetic studies of some varied structural systems of biologically potent polynitrogen heteropolycyclics


Four-component one pot facile synthesis of pyrido[2,3-d]pyrimidines has been carried out. These pyridopyrimidines have been transformed into known and various hitherto unknown systems of ‘ortho’ fused heteropolycycles like pyrimidonaphthyridines, benzo[b]pyrimidonaphthyridines, dipyrimidonaphthyridines, pyridodipyrimidines; and of ‘ortho and peri’ fused unreported pyrimidonaphthyridinoquinazolines and 1,3,4,6,7,8,9,11-octazabenzo[de]naphthacene. All these novel linear and angular systems of heteropolycyclics have been found to be promising antimicrobial agents in the present study and may be developed into future potent drugs.

A facile preparation of N-methylpentan-1-amine: A key intermediate for ibandronate sodium


A facile preparation of N-methylpentan-1-amine, which is a key intermediate for the synthesis ibandronate sodium, an anti-osteoclast agent is described. This route is cost effective over the previous methods. Part of this work could be an easy access for the preparation of various N,N-alkyl or aryl amine derivatives.

Artoindonesianin F, a potent tyrosinase inhibitor from the roots of Artocarpus heterophyllys Lam


Tryrosinase inhibition activity-guided fractionation of the ethyl acetate extract of the roots of Artocarpus heterophyllus Lam., yield a stilbene derivative, (E)-4-[(1E)-3-methyl-1-buten-1-yl]-3,5,2˘,4˘-tetrahydroxystilb­ene (artoindonesianin F). The structure has been established based on physical and spectral data (UV, IR, 1H, 13C NMR and mass). The compound has shown a potent mushroom tyrosinase inhibition activity when compared with standard commercial compound, kojic acid.

Synthesis and antimicrobial activity of 1-alkyl and aryl-3-(2-methyl-1,8-naphthyridin-3-yl)ureas


2-Methyl-1,8-naphthyridine-3-carbonylazide has been synthe­sized from ethyl-2-methyl-1,8-naphthyridine-3-carboxy­late following two different procedures. The azide on heating with aliphatic and aromatic primaryamines in xylene udergoes Curtius rearrangement to furnish the title compounds 6a-t. They have been screened for their antimicrobial activity.

Synthesis and biological screening of 7-alkyl-3,3a,4,5-tetrahydroisoxazolo[3,4-d]pyridazines and 3-chloromethyl-7-methyl-3a,4-dihydro-3H-isoxa­zo­lo[3,4-d][1,2]oxazine


Novel 3-acyl-4-bromomethyl- and 3-acyl-4,5-bischloromethyl-2-isoxazolines were prepared from alkenes like allyl bromide and 1,4-dichloro-trans-2-butene respectively and methyl ketones using Fe(NO3)3.9H2O. These compounds have been screened for anti-fungal and anti-bacterial activity.

Copper(II) chloride catalyzed Friedel-Crafts-type conjugate addition of indoles to a,b-unsaturated enones: Synthesis of 3-substituted indoles


Friedel-Crafts-type alkylation reactions of indoles with a,b-unsaturated enones are catalyzed by a simple copper salt, CuCl2 at room temperature. Several chalcones, cyclohex-2-enone and methyl vinyl ketone are used in this reaction to furnish the corresponding b-indoloylketones in good to excellent yields.
