Thiadiazolyl quinazolones as potential antiviral and antihypertensive agents

Phthalic anhydride on treatment with b-ethanol amine gives N-hydroxyethyl phthalimide 1 which reacts with anthranilic acid in presence of ethanol containing concentrated hydrochloric acid affording 5-(N-ethyl­phthalimido)anthranilic acid 2. This on treatment with benzoyl chloride in pyridine gives 6-(N-ethylphthal­imido)-2-phenyl-4-oxo-3, 4-dihydrobenzoxazine 3 which on reaction with 2-amino-5-aralkyl-1, 3, 4-thiadiazoles 4 in pyridine results in the formation of 6-(N-ethyl­phthalimido)-3-[2¢-(5¢-aralkyl-1¢, 3¢, 4¢-thiadiazolyl)]-2-phe­nyl-4-oxo-(3H)-quinazolines 5.

Electron impact mass spectroscopy (EI-MS) studies of primaquine derivatives

A mass spectral study on two new oxidative products of primaquine and their fragmentation schemes has been rationalized. The structure of these compounds 5,8-di- [4¢- amino-1¢-methylbutylamino]-6,7dihydroxyquinoline (PI) and n-n tri – (4¢-amino-1¢-methylbutylamine) (PII) are proposed on the basis of molecular and fragment ions. The fragment ions are obtained due to ring cleavages, rearrangement, and loss of side chain from the ring. In vitro studies carried out by us show that the PII has significant gametocytocidal activity almost similar to primaquine. But the schizontocidal activity of PII is more than primaquine. Therefore the spectra reported might serve as reference for the development of new molecules for the radical cure of relapsing malaria.

Synthesis, CNS and chloroquin resistance reversal activity of benzenepropanamines

Several benzenepropanamines with a benzyl group attached to the 3-amino function have been synthesized and evaluated for their CNS and chloroquin resistant reversal activity. These compounds have been tested for their effect on gross behaviour and for antidepressant, anticonvulsant and anorexigenic activity.No effect is observed on gross behaviour whereas most of them show fluoxetine like antireserpine and anorexigenic acti­vity.Five compounds selectively inhibit P.falciparum heme oxygenase like fluoxetine.
