Synthesis and in vitro study of biological activity of heterocyclic N-Mannich bases

Three series of N-Mannich bases of 3,4-dihydropyrimidine-2(1H)-ones (DHPMs) 7a-g, 8a-g and 9a-g have been prepared by Mannich reaction of three DHPMs derivatives 4a, 4b and 4c respectively with seven different heterocyclic secondary amino compounds 6a-g and formaldehyde 5. All the three series of N-Mannich bases have been analyzed with a view to elucidate their elemental analysis and spectral studies (FTIR, 1H NMR). They have been assayed in vitro for their antimicrobial activity.

Conformational studies of nonapeptide using NMR

The study of conformation of nonapeptide Tyr-Met-Asp-Gly-Thr-Met-Ser-Gln-Val (YMDGTMSQV), capable of being recognized by melanoma specific T-cells, corresponds to residue 369 to 377 of tyrosenase gene has been carried out. Secondary structures have been obtained by 1H NMR and molecular dynamic simulation using CSI values, 2D COSY, NOESY and ROESY.

Synthesis of functionalized diaryl alkanes from azines


Substituted diaryl alkanes are synthesized from benzalazines and acetophenone/propiophenone azines via Friedel Craft`s reaction with substituted mono- and poly-nuclear aromatic hydrocarbons. Diaryl methanes/ethanes and propanes are obtained by reaction with benzalazine, N,N'-bis(1-phenyl) azine and N,N'-bis(1-propyl)azine, respectively.
