Guanidino substituted isoindolones as novel glycoprotein IIb-IIIa receptor antagonists

Design and synthesis of potent new GP IIb-IIIa receptor antagonist. Compound with R1 = R2 = OCH2COOEt and X = O showed IC50 = 0.025 mM. Our study also indicated possibility of additional binding site near the central part of the molecule in the form of H-bond donor to ligand.

Microwave assisted synthesis of indole and furan derivatives possessing good anti-inflammatory and analgesic activity

A number of indole 1 and furan 2-6 derivatives have been synthesized by condensation of indole-2- carboxylic acid with aryl sulfonyl hydrazide and furfuryl amine with various carboxylic acids and diacids using microwave irradiation. On anti-inflammatory and analgesic activity screening compound 5 exhibited good anti-inflammatory and analgesic activity.

A comparative crystallographic analysis of the
X-ray structure of three cholest-based steroidal molecules

The molecular and crystal structures of (+)-4-cholesten-3-one 1 cholesteryl chloroformate 2 and cholesteryl-caprylate 3 have been determined by using X-ray crystallographic and computational techniques. All the three compounds crystallize in the monoclinic space group P21 with unit cell parameters: a=10.683(5), b=7.861(2), c=14.616(2), b=105.8(2)o for [1], a=12.294(2), b=9.399(8), c=12.787(2), b=113.3(1)o for [2] and a = 12.778(9), b = 9.201(4), c = 14.063(6) , b = 93.85(4)o for [3]. The number of molecules per unit cell in case of each structure is 2. The final R-factor for [1] is 0.054, [2] 0.077 and [3] 0.068. Besides some interesting geometrical and structural features, all the three molecules exhibit C-HO hydrogen bonding.

Gallium(III) halides catalyzed, microwave enhanced, synthesis of 3,4-dihydropyrimidin-2-(1H)-ones under solvent free condition

Gallium(III) halides catalyzed and microwave enhanced three component Biginelli reaction of aldehyde, 1,3-dicarbonyl compounds and urea or thiourea under solvent free conditions to afford 3,4-dihydropyrimidin-2-(1H)-ones in excellent yields is described. The present procedure for the production of dihydropyrimidinones describes the first ever catalytic activity of gallium(III) halides. This improved procedure is fairly simple, facile and environment friendly.
