Synthesis, characterization and potential anti­convulsant activity of various 3-(substituted)-benzylidene-7-chloro-5-phenyl-1,3-dihydro-benzo­[e]­[1,4]diazepin-2-one


Some new 3-(substituted)-benzylidene derivatives of 7-chloro-5-phenyl-1,3-dihydro-benzo [e][1,4] diazepin-2-one have been synthesized and their anticonvulsant activity tested through Maximal Electroshock (M.E.S.) model and PTZ animal model by using Phenytoin and Diazepam as reference drugs respectively. The five compounds 4a, 4b, 4d, 4h and 4j have shown significant anticonvulsant activity as compared to reference drugs.












4a: R= 4-Cl

4b: R= 2-Cl

4d: R= 3-OH

4h: R= 4-N(CH3)2

4j : R= 4-F

Microwave accelerated synthesis of 2-amino­thiophenes in ionic liquid via three component Gewald reaction


Microwave accelerated synthesis of substituted 2-aminothiophenes by a three-component Gewald reaction using a basic ionic liquid, 1,1,3,3-tetramethylguanidine lactate [TMG] [Lac] as solvent as well as catalyst has been developed. The products are obtained in good to high yields and the ionic liquid is reusable over several cycles without significant loss in catalytic activity.
