Synthesis and antimicrobial activity of some new cyanopyridine and cyanopyrans towards Myco­bacterium tuberculosis and other micro­organisms


2-Amino-3-cyano-6-(3,5-dibromo-4-methoxyphenyl)-4-aryl-pyridines 2a-i are synthesized by the reaction of compounds (2E)-3-(3,5-dibromo-4-methoxyphenyl)-1-arylprop-2-en-1-one 1a-i with malononitrile in the presence of ammonium acetate. Condensation of compounds 1a-i with malononitrile in pyridine has yielded 2-amino-3-cyano-6-(3,5-dibromo-4-methoxyphenyl)-4-arylpyrans 3a-i. The constitution of all the synthesized compounds have been established by elemental analyses, IR, 1H NMR, and mass spectral data. All the compounds are screened for their antitubercular and antimicrobial activities.

Novel synthesis and biological activity study of pyrimido[2,1-b] benzothiazoles


A convenient and apparently simple procedure has been developed to prepare a series of substituted pyrimido [2,1-b] benzothiazoles by the conjugate addition of the imino nitrogen of 2-aminobenzothiazoles to alkyne b-carbon atom of acetylenic acid followed by ring closure. Owing to the biological importance of synthesized compounds, they are screened for antimicrobial activity and found to exhibit significant activities.

Effect of structure of diamide-diimide-diamines based on L-methionine on curing behaviour and thermal stability of DGEBA


New l-methionine-based diacids containing imide units are synthesized via reaction of dianhydride with l-methionine. A series of diamide-diimide-diamines has been synthesized by activation of obtained diacids with thionyl chloride and then condensation with excess of different aromatic diamines containing ether, methylene and sulfone units via high temperature condensation method.
