Synthesis, spectral studies and biological activity of novel 3H-1,5-benzodiazepine derivatives

A very convenient, efficient method has been developed for the synthesis of various 3H-1,5-benzodiazepines from β-diketones and β-ketoesters 4a-e and o-phenylenediamine (o-PDA) in the presence of SiO2-Cl / wet SiO2 under microwave irradiation. The compounds 5a-e have been screened for their antimicrobial, antifungal and anthelmintic activity. The compound 5c has exhibited considerable antimicrobial and antifungal activity and compounds 5d and 5e showed significant anthelmintic activity.

Synthesis of substituted steroidal thiadiazole, triazole and oxidotriazole

Cholest-5-en-3b-gloxy acetic acid thiosemicarbazide 3 is obtained from ethyl-5-cholesten-3b-O-acetate 2 by its reaction with thiosemicarbazide. The steroidal thiosemicarbazide 3 on further, chemoselective heterocyclization with conc. H2SO4, conc. NaOH and I2/NaOH yields 3b-[5′-amino-1′,2′,4′-thiadiazole-3′-methoxy]-cholest-5-ene 4, 3b-[5′-mercapto-1′,2′,4′,-triazole-3′-methoxy]-cholest-5-ene 5 and 3b-[5′-mercapto-3′,5′-oxido-1′,2′,4′-triazolo-3′-methoxy]-5a-cholestane 6, respectively.
