Lipase catalysed preparation of oligomers of p-hydroxybenzoic acid and p-aminobenzoic acid

Oligomers are produced when p–hydroxybenzoic acid and p–aminobenzoic acids are co-polymerised with lactic acid/glycolic acid/e -caprolactone using porcine pancrease lipase in organic media.

Spectral studies of substituent effects in some diphenyl sulfide derivatives

Hammett relationship for λn-π* indicates that substituent effects are purely polar while 1HNMR studies suggest that 4¢-arylthio-3¢-nitrobenzotrifluorides 4a-i do not exist in the skew conformation. Lynch and dual substituent parameters (DSP) correlations indicate a resonance between the sulfur atom and 3¢-nitro group.

Synthesis, anticancer, antitubercular and antimicrobial activity of 6-carbethoxy-5-(3¢-chlorophenyl)-3-aryl-2-cyclohexenones and 6-aryl-4-(3¢-chlorophenyl)-3-oxo-2,3a,4,5-tetrahydro-1H-indazoles

6-Carbethoxy-5-(3¢-chlorophenyl)-3-aryl-2-cyclohexenones 2a-j are obtained from the chalcones 1a-j . Reaction of 2a-j with hydrazine hydrate affords the corresponding 6-aryl-4-(3¢-chlorophenyl)-3-oxo-2,3a-4,5-tetrahydro-1H-indazoles 3a-j. The synthesized compounds are evaluated for their anticancer, antitubercular and antimicrobial activity.
