Chloroacetylation of arenes using chloroacetyl chloride in the presence of FeCl3 modified montmorillonite K10

Chloroacetylation of arenes using chloroacetyl chloride has been studied in the presence of Fe-modified mont­morillonite K10 catalysts in a liquid phase. The catalysts have been prepared by treating montmorillonite K10 with aqueous solution of FeCl3. Good yields and selectivity are observed for the acylated product.

Ceric ammonium nitrate (CAN) promoted efficient solid phase synthesis of amide deri­va­tives: A green approach

Ceric ammonium nitrate (CAN) has been found to be an efficient catalyst for the solid phase synthesis of amide derivatives of wide range of substituted carboxylic acids and urea in excellent yields under microwave irradiation conditions.  High yields are achieved even on a gram scale, while the reaction times were considerably shortened.  This method displays both economic and environmental advantages.

p-TsOH Catalyzed regioselective synthesis of 8,8'-methylene-bis-4-oxo-dihydro­chromeno[4,3-c]pyr­a­­zoles

The ethyl-5-[3-(ethoxycarbonyl)-4-hydroxybenzyl]-2-hy­dro­xy­benzoate 3 is prepared by the usual esterification of 5-(3-carboxy-4-hydroxybenzyl)-2-hydroxy benzoic acid 2. Compound 3 on reacting with ethyl acetoacetate yields 3-acetyl-6-[(3-acetyl-4-hydroxy-2-oxo-2H-6-chromenyl)me­thyl]-4-hydroxy-2H-2-chromenone 4. The regioselective conversion, by cyclizing the hydrazone 5 of compound 4 to either 8,8'-methylene-bis-4-oxo-1,4-dihydrochromeno[4,3-c]pyrazoles 6 with p-toluene sulfonic acid in refluxing xylene or 8,8'-methylene-bis-4-oxo-2,4-dihydro­chro­meno­[4,3-c]pyrazoles 7 with corresponding hydrazine hydro­chloride in refluxing acetic acid is described.

A new scalarane sesterterpene from a marine sponge Hyatella cribrifomis Hyatt of the Indian Ocean

Chemical Investigation of a marine sponge, Hyatella cribriformis, of the Indian ocean resulted in the isolation of a new scalarane sesterterpene, 24-β-methoxyscalarolide 4, along with known scalaranes- 12-epi-deoxoscalarin 1, 12-epi-12-deacetyl-25-deoxyscalarin 2 and scalarolide 3. The structure of compound 4 was determined on the basis of H and C NMR, DEPT, H-H COSY and EIMS experi­ments.
