R K Tiwari*, A K Saxena & P S Venkataramani

Nucleophilic addition reactions of primary, secondary and tertiary amines with terephthaloylacetylene have been studied. The primary and secondary amines yield 1:2 cis- and trans- addition products respectively. With tertiary amines i.e., isoquinoline/quinoline, solvent methanol also takes part in the reaction yielding 1:2:2 addition products.

QSAR studies on anti HIV-1 N-substituted betulinic acid amides

QSAR studies, using structural parameters such as equalized electronegativity ‘Xeq’, molecular connectivity ‘1cb’ and hydrophobicity ‘logP’ on a novel series of w-amino alkanoic acid derivatives of betulinic acid, have been discussed. Anti HIV-1 activity of these compounds both in CEM-4 and MT-4 cell cultures is found to correlate well with steric 1cb as well as electronic Xeq parameters. The presence of an amide function is found to be important for activity.
