Vilsmeier Haack reaction of substituted 2-acetamido-thiazole derivatives and their antimicrobial activity


IPC Code: Int.Cl.8 C07D

Vilsmeier Haack reaction of 2-acetamido thiazole having carbethoxy group at C-4 affords the unexpected N-formylated product, which is followed by deacetylation. The same reaction with substituents other than carbethoxy group at C-4 position (viz CH3, CH2COOC2H5, coumarinyl, phenyl, etc.) gives the expected C-5 formylated products which are tested for their antimicrobial activity.
