Design, microwave-assisted synthesis and in silico docking studies of new 4H-pyrimido[2,1-b]benzo­thiazole-2-arylamino-3-cyano-4-ones as possible ade­no­sine A2B receptor antagonists


A series of new 4H-pyrimido[2,1-b]benzothiazole-2-arylamino-3-cyano-4-ones 6a-g have been designed and synthesized by MAOS technique and evaluated in silico (docking studies) using a homology model of A2B adenosine receptor employing GOLD (CCDC, 4.0.1 version) software.

Synthesis and biological evaluation of some new bipyrazolylbenzenesulfonamides as possible anti­microbial and chemotherapeutic agents


A series of functionalized bipyrazoles, fused bipyrazoles and other related heterocyclic systems have been synthesized. The key intermediate bipyrazoles have been prepared by cyclocondensation of the appropriate chalcone with 4-hydrazinobenzenesulfonamide hydrochloride. All the synthesized compounds show weak anticancer activity and weak antimicrobial and antifungal activity against some bacteria and fungi.

Protective role of native bovine serum albumin and alpha-unsaturated fatty acids on catechin oxidation

Catechin, a common ingredient of tea and coffee undergoes spontaneous oxidation by aerial O2, heat and UV exposure or ammonium persulfate treatment. Several α–unsaturated fatty acids, β–Mercapto ethanol and native bovine serum albumin block the oxidation process. The present studies indicate that ammonium persulfate, UV illumination and aerial oxygenation produce the same yellow poly-phenolic species.

Effect of A1,3-strain on the stereochemistry of N-acetyl and N,O-diacetyl-r-2,c-6-diphenylpiperidin-4-one oximes


The N-acetyl and N,O-diacetyl –r-2,c-6-diphenyl-piperidin-4-one oximes has been found to adopt twist-boat conformations on the basis of results from NMR spevral studies, X-ray crystallography and semiempirical MO calculations

Green synthesis of novel isoxazoline derivatives using N-methyl-α-chloro nitrone and their antibacterial activities


Microwave assisted 1,3-Dipolar cycloaddition reaction of N-methyl-α-chloro nitrone with various alkynes as dipolarophile have been studied and found to afford diastereomeric novel isoxazoline derivatives with high selectivity. All the synthesized compounds have been screened for their antibacterial activity and are found to exihibit significant activity.
