Synthesis, reactions and anthelmintic activity of 1-[benzimidazol-2-yl]-4-formyl-3-[2′(-substituted phen­yl) indole-3-yl] pyrazoles


Reaction of 2-hydrazinobenzimidazoles 1 and 3-acetylindoles 2 gives 3-acetylindolbenzimidazol-2-yl hydrazones 3 in [bmim]PF6. On Vilsmeier Haack reaction of 3, 4-formyl pyrazole derivatives 4 are obtained. Reaction of formyl group of 4 with arylketones and anilines in ionic liquid / conventional method gives the corresponding chalcones 5 and Schiff bases 6.

Synthesis of some new 2-(benzylsulfonyl­ethylsulfonyl­methyl)­oxazolines and thiazolines


A new class of five-membered heterocycles oxazolines and thiazolines have been prepared by multistep, one-pot and microwave irradiation methodologies. The microwave method provides an excellent approach for the safe, rapid, inexpensive and simple synthesis of oxazolines and thiazolines.

Ferulic acid ester from Colebrookea oppositifolia


Five constituents have been isolated from Colebrookea oppositifolia Smith syn. C. ternifolia Roxb. (Lamiaceae) namely n-triacontane, cetyl alcohol, 32-hydroxydotriacontyl ferulate, b-sitosterol and 5,6,7,4′-tetramethoxyflavone. Isolation of 32-hydroxydotriacontyl ferulate is being reported for the first time from this plant. Structure of these compounds have been elucidated on the basis of spectral (IR, NMR, MS) data.

A green synthesis and antibacterial activity of 2-aryl-5-(coumarin-3-yl)-thiazolo [3,2-b][1,2,4]triazoles


3-Aryl-5-(coumarin-3-yl)acylthio-1,2,4-triazoles 1a-h have been prepared by direct condensation of 3-acetylcoumarins and various 3-aryl-5-mercapto-1,2,4-triazoles in the presence of molecular iodine using grinding technique at RT. 3-Aryl-5-(coumarin-3-yl)acylthio-1,2,4-triazoles on cyclisation with polyphosphoric acid using microwave irradiations under solvent free conditions give 2-aryl-5-(coumarin-3-yl)-thiazolo[3,2-b][1,2,4]triazoles 2a-h. The present method is quite environmentally benign as it avoids the use of hazardous organic solvents during the reaction as well as at working up stage. Several new compounds have been synthesized and their antibacterial properties have been described.
