Synthesis of 1-alkyl/aralkyl-2-(1-arylsul fonylalkyl)­benzimidazoles under PTC conditions



IPC: Int.Cl.8 C07D


2-(α-Chloroalkyl)benzimidazoles 1 on reaction with arylsulphinate sodium salt 2 in CH3CN under PTC conditions, give 3 which on alkylation yields 1-alkyl/aralkyl 2-(α-arylsulfonylalkyl)benzimidazoles 4. Alternatively, 4 can also be prepared by the reaction of 2 with 1-alkyl/aralkyl-2-(α-chloroalkyl)­benzi­mida­zole 5 in CH3CN using PTC conditions.

Novel one-pot synthesis of 1,3-dithiins and 1,3-thiazines under microwave irradiation


IPC: Int.Cl.8 C07D

Microwave induced synthesis of 1,3-dithiins and 1,3-thiazines involving Knoevenagel condensation followed by Michael addition under solvent-free conditions in one-pot is reported. The reaction is catalyzed by cheap and easily available NaCl.

Synthesis of CL-20: By oxidative debenzylation with cerium(IV) ammonium nitrate (CAN)


IPC: Int.Cl.8 C07D


A simple debenzylation approach has been discussed for the synthesis of hexanitrohexaazaisowurtzitane (HNIW or CL-20) one of the most powerful high explosives of today with cerium ammonium (IV) nitrate.

p-Selectivities of trans-2-heterobicyclo­[4.4.0]­decan-5-ones in reductions with NaBH4 and Na(CN)BH3


IPC: Int.Cl.8 C07D

The nheteroatoms*# interaction hypothesis to explain the relative reaction rates and the axial selectivities of nucleophilic additions to 2-hetero­bicyclo[4.4.0]­decan-5-ones in relation to the corresponding carba-analog does not find experimental as well as theoretical support. The selectivity is rather dependent on the differential electron-withdrawing abilities of the heteroatoms that translate further into differential svicinalp*C=O interactions in the ground states of the molecules. The heightened axial selectivity of the aza-species is probably due to hydrogen bonding of nitrogen with the solvent that enhances its electron withdrawing ability further.

Synthesis and spectrum of new Schiff bases as polydentate ligands and potential antibacterial reagents


IPC: Int.Cl.7 C07D

Eight novel linear polydentate Schiff base ligands, N,N′-bis(R-iminoethyl)-2,6-pyridine- dicarboxylic diamide IIa-g, have been synthesized. Micro­calorimetric test of the inhibitory capacities of these compounds on E. coli and S. aureus show that they have antibacterial activity to different extent.

Lewis acid catalyzed amino-Claisen rearrange­ment: A facile one pot synthesis of 2-allylaryl­amines from N-allylarylamines


IPC: Int.Cl.8 C07C


Boron trifluoride-diethyl ether complex efficiently catalyzes a variety of amino-Claisen rearrangement of N-allylarylamines 1a-g to afford 2-allylarylamines
2a-g in moderate to good yields.

Synthesis of pyrazole and isoxazole in tri­ethanol­amine medium


IPC: Int.Cl.8 C07D

Reaction of 2'-hydroxy chalcone dibromides with phenyl hydrazine and hydrazine hydrate affords pyrazoles and with hydroxylamine hydrochloride give isoxazoles in triethanolamine medium. Similarly reaction of b-diketone with phenyl hydrazine and hydrazine hydrate in TEA gives pyrazoles in high yield in shorter time.

Synthesis and bioactivity study of 2,5-bismer­capto-1,3,4-thiadiazole heterocyclic derivatives


IPC: Int.Cl.8 C07D

A series of acylhydrazone compounds 3 and acylthiosemicarbazides 4 and some heterocyclic derivatives 5 containing thiadiazole rings have been synthesized conveniently in high yields. The bioassay result indicates that some compounds have relatively low antibacterial activity and bioactivity for improving plant growth.
