A new and simple synthetic approach to functionalized sulphone derivatives by the Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling reaction


IPC: Int.Cl.7 C 07 D

Synthesis of various highly functionalized sulphone derivatives are reported via the bis Suzuki-Miyaura (SM) cross-coupling reaction as a key step. In this regard, the dibromo sulphone prepared by the thermal rearrangement of corresponding sultine derivative has been used as a key building block to prepare various functionalized aromatic sulphone derivatives.

Antioxidant and antimicrobial activity evaluation of polyhydroxycinnamic acid ester derivatives


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

Polyhydroxycinnamic acid esters 5a-p have been synthesized and their antioxidant, antimicrobial activity are studied. The SAR studies reveal that pyrogallol and catechol moieties are essential for good antioxidant activity. Butyl hydroxycinnamates exhibit higher antibacterial activity and none of them shows significant antifungal activity.

Condensation reactions of various nucleophiles with 3-formylchromone


IPC: Int.Cl.7 C 07 D

3-Formylchromones 1 have been condensed with 1-(2,4-difluorophenyl-2-[1,2,4]triazol-4-yl)ethanone in acetic anhydride to afford 3-[3-(2,4-difluorophenyl)-3-oxo-2-[1, 2, 4]triazol-4-yl)-propenyl]chromon-4-ones 2. 3-Formylchromones 1 when heated with benzo­[d]isoxazol-3-yl-acetic acid in dry pyridine yield the compounds 3-(2-benzo[d]isoxazol-3-yl-vinyl) chromon-4-ones 3. Further, 3-formylchromones 1 on heating with N-methylpiperizine in ethanol give 1-(2-hydroxy­phenyl)-3-(4-methylpiperazin-1-yl) propenones 4.
