An efficient use of microwave-superoxide combination for the synthesis of organic carbamates and dithiocarbamates

The present report demonstrates an efficient use of microwave-tetraethylammonium superoxide combination under non-aqueous conditions to bring about a mild and safe carbamation/thiocarbamation of amines, using carbon dioxide/carbon disulfide and methyl iodide.

Heck reaction over palladium supported on nickel ferrite as an efficient and inexpensive catalyst

The palladium supported on nickel ferrite is found to be a highly active catalyst for the Heck olefination of aryl iodides and activated aryl bromides providing an excellent yield in an aerobic condition, in shorter reaction time.

Synthesis and biological evaluation of some new aryl pyrazol-3-one derivatives as potential hypoglycemic agents


Condensation of various substituted phenylhydrazines 1 with  diethylethoxymethylene malonate (DEEM) 2 give new aryl pyrazol-3-one derivatives 3 in a single step. The pyrazol-3-one derivatives are screened for their hypoglycemic activity.

p-Toluenesulfonic acid catalyzed rapid and efficient protocol for one-pot synthesis of
α-amino nitriles


A simple, rapid and efficient practical method for one-pot synthesis of α-amino nitriles has been achieved by a three-component condensation of carbonyl compounds, amines and trimethylsilyl cyanide in the presence of p-toluene­sulfonic acid (p-TsOH) as a catalyst at ambient tempe­rature. Operational simplicity, economic consideration, high yield, short reaction time and low toxicity are the key features associated with this protocol.

Facile ZrCl4 promoted four-component coupling one-pot synthesis of polyhydroquinoline derivatives through unsymmetric Hantzsch reaction


ZrCl4 catalyzed efficient unsymmetric Hantzsch reaction via four-component coupling reaction of aldehydes, dimedone, ethyl acetoacetate and ammonium acetate at ambient temperature is described as the preparation of polyhydroquinoline derivatives. The process presented here is an operationally simple, economic, environmentally benign and provides excellent yield. Furthermore, the catalyst can be recovered conveniently and reused efficiently.

Synthesis and biological evaluation of 2-amino­benzo­thiazole derivatives


As a part of systematic investigation of synthesis and biologically active compounds of 2-amino benzothiazoles, several new [(2"-substituted aryl)-4"-oxo-1", 3"-thia­zolidine-3"-iminoacetyl]-2-aminobenzothiazole 5 and [(5"-arylidene-2"-substituted aryl-4"-oxo-1", 3"-thia­zoli­dine)-3"-iminoacetyl]-2-aminobenzothiazole 6 from 2-amino­benzo­thiazole have been synthesized. All the synthesized products were evaluated for their antibacterial activity against Bacillus substilis, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae and Staphylococcus aureus and antifungal activity against Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus flavus, Fusarium oxisporum and Trichoderma viride. The structures of all the synthesized compounds have been determined by spectral and chemical methods.

Synthesis and β-adrenergic blocking activity of naphthyloxypropylamines


A series of naphthyloxypropanolamines 4a-4l have been synthesized and tested for cardiac b-adrenergic blocking activity on the isolated perfused frog heart model. The compound 4e showed excellent blocking activity, i.e., 100% blockade of adrenaline response.
