One-pot Reformatsky-Imine addition reaction leading to the synthesis of structurally diverse


IPC: Int.Cl.8 C07D

b-Lactams are well-known for being the part of various antibiotics. The Reformatsky-imine addition reaction of a-bromoethylacetate with aldimines derived from 3,4-methylenedioxy benzaldehyde and a-methylcinnamaldehyde provided an efficient and practical access to structurally diverse b-lactams. All the new b-lactams have been identified as 1,4-diaryl-2-azetidinones through their detailed spectral studies. Further, it also reveals that the styryl bond of a-methylcinnamylideneanilines did not participate in the reaction and gives b-lactams contrary to their analogues cinnamylideneanilines and o-nitro­cinn­amylidene anilines which gave d-lactams.

A facile and high efficient synthesis of nitriles from aldoximes and primary amides with a mixture of triphenylphosphine/2, 3-dichloro-5, 6-dicyanobenzoquinone (PPh3/DDQ) under neutral conditions


IPC: Int.Cl.8 C07C

Aldoximes are immediately converted to their corres­ponding nitriles with a mixture of triphenylphosphine and 2,3-dichloro-5,6-dicyanobenzoquinone in di­chloro­methane under neutral conditions at room temperature. Also, nitriles are formed from the reaction of primary amides with this reagent in refluxing acetonitrile under neutral conditions.

On the reaction of anthranilic acid with thionyl chloride : Iminoketene intermediate formation


IPC: Int.Cl.8 C07D

2-(Sulfinylamino) benzoyl chloride is formed on treating anthranilic acid with thionyl chloride. The formation of iminoketene intermediate from 2-(sulfinylamino) benzoyl chloride explains many of its reactions.

Efficient synthesis of bis(indolyl) methanes in aqueous medium catalyzed by molybdenyl acetylacetonate


IPC: Int.Cl.8 C07D

A mild and efficient electrophilic substitution reaction of indoles with aldehydes and ketones has been carried out in water using a catalytic amount of MoO2(acac)2 to afford the corresponding bis(indolyl)methanes in excellent yields. Vibrindole A, a bacterial metabolite and 3,3'-diindolyl methane, a potent anti-carcinogenic agent has also been successfully synthesized in excellent yield using this methodology.

The novel N,S-substituted nitro dienes from the reactions of some mono(alkylthio)-substituted
2-nitrodienes with piperazine and thiomorpholine and a structural study


IPC: Int.Cl.8 C07D

Thiosubstituted nitrodien compounds 1a-f are obtained from 2-nitropentachlorobutadiene and some alifatic thiols. Compounds 1a-f have reacted with thiomorpholine 2 and yielded 3a-f in CH2Cl2. The compounds 5a-f have been obtained by the reactions of 1a-f with N-(diphenylmethyl)piperazine 4 in CH2Cl2. 2-Nitro-3,4,4-trichloro-1-(ethylthio)-1-[4-(1-diphenylmethyl)-piperazin-1-yl]-1,3-butadiene 5a is synthesized and its crystal structure is determined. The compound 5a crystallizes in the Orthorhombic crystal system (space group P212121) with the unit cell parameters a = 9.4240(2) Ĺ, b = 14.4007(2) Ĺ, c = 18.1891(2) Ĺ, a, b, g = 90°, V = 2468.48(7) Ĺ3, Z = 4. The structure has been solved by direct methods (SIR92) and refined to the residual index R1 = 0.078.
