A convenient synthesis of tert-butyl ethers under microwave condition


Synthesis of tert-butyl ethers from various alcohols and substituted phenols can be achieved using tert-butyl bromide in the presence of basic lead carbonate as a catalyst under microwave irradiation in absence of solvent. The catalyst is easily recovered via filtration and reused up to three times without appreciable loss of activity.

Synthesis and QSAR studies of thiosemi­carbazides, 1,2,4-triazoles, 1,3,4-thiadiazoles and 1,3,4-oxadiazoles derivatives as potential anti­bacterial agents


Several new 2-(2-(4-chlorophenyl)acetyl)-N-arylhydrazine­carbo­thioamides 1, 5-(4-chlorobenzyl)-4-aryl-4H-1,2,4-triazole-3-thiols 2, 5-(4-chlorobenzyl)-N-aryl-1,3,4-thiadiazol-2-amines 3 and 5-(4-chlorobenzyl)-N-aryl-1,3,4-oxadiazol-2-amines 4 have been synthesized and evaluated for their antibacterial activity. The QSAR studies of the new bio-active molecules have been carried out by Hansch’s LFER method.

A study on types of hydrogen bonding in crystal structure of 1-acetyl-3-thiosemicarbazide


The unit cell structure of 1-acetyl-3-thiosemicarbazide (ATSC) and the types of hydrogen bonds present in crystalline form are envisaged from single crystal X-ray diffraction studies. The topological analysis of hydrogen bonds indicated both inter- and intramolecular hydrogen bonding. The single crystal X-ray diffraction data corresponding to hydrogen bonding reveals the hydrogen-bond strength sequence as: N─H· · ·N > O─H· · ·O > N─H· · ·O > N─H· · ·S.

TiO2: A simple and an efficient catalyst for esterification of phenols under solvent- free condition


In the presence of catalytic amount of titanium oxide (TiO2), without any additional solvent at 25 °C, phenols are conveniently acylated by acid chlorides to get phenolic esters in excellent yields. The TiO2 powder can be reused three times after simple washing with CH2Cl2.

Conventional as well as microwave assisted synthesis of some new N9-[hydrazinoacetyl-(2-oxo-3-chloro-4-substituted aryl azetidine)]-carbazoles: Antifungal and antibacterial studies

Carbazole on reaction with chloroacetyl chloride afford N9-(chloroacetyl)-carbazole, 1 which on treatment with hydrazine hydrate has yielded N9-(hydrazinoacetyl)-carbazole, 2. Condensation of 2 with various aromatic aldehydes has afforded N9-(arylidene hydrazinoacetyl)-carbazoles, 3 which on cycloaddition with chloroacetyl chloride in the presence of triethylamine has yielded-N9-[hydrazineacetyl (2-oxo-3-chloro-4-substituted aryl azetidine)]-carbazoles 4. All the above reactions are also performed by microwave assisted synthetic method which gave better results as compared to conventional method. The structures of all the products are characterized by microanalytical data and spectroscopic techniques. All the synthesized products are screened for their antibacterial activity against Bacillus subtilis, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Staphylococcus aureus and antifungal activity against Aspergillus nigar, Aspergillus flavus, Fusarium oxisporium and Trichoderma viride.

Two new phytoconstituents from Rumex mari­timus


A new polyhydroxy ketone derivative and a terpene glycoside have been isolated from the seeds of Rumex maritimus. Their structures have been established as 3,7,11,15-tetramethyl-n-octadac-13-en-3,4,6,7,8,11-hexol-12-one 1 and 8b-hydroxy-14b-methyl-7-oxopodocarp-5-en-13-(19a-hydroxy-19,22,22-tri­me­thyl­­­heptyl)-22-O-(b-d-glucopyranosyl)-(4®1)b-d-glucopyranoside 2, respectively, on the basis of chemical and spectral data analysis.

Synthesis and antimicrobial activity of 2-(2′-arylidene-hydrazino-acetyl-amino)-4-phenyl-1,3-thiazoles and 2-[2′-{4′′-substituted-aryl-3′′-chloro-2′′-oxo-azetidine}-acetyl-amino]-4-phenyl-1,3-thiazoles


2-(2′-Substituted-arylidene-hydrazino-acetyl-amino)-4-phenyl-1, 3-thiazoles, 3 and 2-[2′-{4′′-substituted-aryl-3′′-chloro-2′′-oxo-azetidine}-acetyl-amino]-4-phenyl-1,3-thiazoles 4 have been synthesized from 2-(2′-hydrazino-acetyl)-amino-4-phenyl-1,3-thiazole, 2 using 2-amino-4-phenyl-1,3-thiazole as the starting material. All the synthesized products are evaluated for their antifungal activity against Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus flavus, Fusarium oxisporium and Trichoderma viride and antibacterial activity against Bacillus substilis, Eschericha coli. Klebsiella pneumoneae and Staphylococcus aureus respectively. The structures of all the synthesized compounds have been determined by their spectral and microanalytical data.
