Mild and selective oxidation of alcohols and deoximation of oximes over supported quinolinium fluorochromate


IPC: Int.Cl.7 C 07 B 31/00, C 07 C 31/00

QFC-silica gel selectively oxidises primary hydroxyl groups in the presence of secondary hydroxyl group. Selectivity is also observed in the oxidation of axial hydroxyl group in preference to equitorial group. Parent carbonyl compounds are regenerated in good yield from the oximes. Its mildness is exhibited in the oxidation of alcohols with acid sensitive groups. The supported reagent is stable over a period of twelve weeks.

Unambiguous structural assignment of mono­anils obtained from 2, 3-pyridine­diamines

IPC: Int.Cl.7 C 07 D 211/00

The reaction of 2,3-pyridinediamines 1 with aromatic aldehydes results in monoanils 2, which on dehydrogenative cyclization yield imidazopyridines 3. The structures of monoanils are unambiguously confirmed by their single crystal X-ray analyses.

Studies on synthesis and anti-bacterial activity of novel  4-substituted phenyl-2-oxo-1,3-oxazolidine-5-carboxylates

IPC: Int.Cl.7 C 07 D 263/04

Regioselective opening of glycidic esters with sodium azide gives azido alcohols, which are converted to novel 4-substituted phenyl-2-oxo-1,3-oxazolidine-5-carboxy­lates by various methods. These compounds are tested for in vitro anti-bacterial activity against Staphylococcus aureus, E. faecalis and E. faecium.

Synthesis and biological evaluation of 1-acetyl-3-(2-acetoxy-3-substituted propyloximino) indol-2(3H)-ones


IPC: Int.Cl.7 C 07 D 209/04 // A 61 P 31/10, 31/04

1-Acetyl-3-oximino indole-2(3H)-one 2 on reaction with epichlorohydrin in acetone gives 1-acetyl-3-(2, 3-epoxy propyloximino) indol-2(3H)-one 3. This on subsequent reaction with piperidine, pyrolidine, dicyclohexyl amine, diphenyl amine, methyl phenyl amine gives corres­ponding Mannich base 4, which on acetylation furnishes 5. All the compounds have been tested for antimicrobial, gross behavioral, antagonism of tetrabenazine induced ptosis, inhibition of pentobarbitone induced narcosis in mice, effect on blood pressure and respiration rate, skeletal muscle contraction activities in suitable experimental models.

Nickel chloride hexahydrate: A novel reagent for Michael addition on a, b-unsaturated acids — A facile one step route to 3-aryl­mercaptopropionic acids from thiophenols and a,b-unsaturated acids


IPC: Int.Cl.7 C 07 G 53/00

In usual practice, Michael additions are carried out in presence of a base, but when an a,b-unsaturated ‘acid’ is a substrate, it would be most unlikely for a carboxylate ion bearing a,b- unsaturated site to undergo a Michael addition. This problem has been circumvented in the present paper by carrying out a nickel chloride hexahydrate mediated Michael addition of thiophenols 1a-k on acrylic acid and on cinnamic acid to give 3-aryl mercaptopropionic acids 3a-k in excellent yield.
