A new versatile strategy for design and synthesis of reduced risk fungicides: Bibenzyl core incorporated with modified as-indacene

A novel montmorillonite K 10 clay catalyzed Michael addition followed by dehydrative cyclization in one-pot is designed to synthesize 4,4'-bis(4",8"-aryl-1",4"-dihydro-bisthia­zolo­[3,2-a;5'",4'"-e]pyrimidine-2"-thion-1"-yl)biben­zyls 6a-j with excellent yield under microwave irradiation in solvent-free conditions. Antifungal screening results on Fusarium oxysporum and Penicillium citrinum show that most of the synthesized compounds display promising antifungal activity.

Synthesis and characterization of fused and spiro heterocycles by ultrasonic methods

Treatment of 1,4-diazacyclohexan-2,5-dione 1 with bromine in carbontetrachloride yielded 1,4-diaza-3-bromo-2,5-dioxo­cyclo­hexane 2 and 1,4-diaza-3,3-dibromocyclohexane-2,5-dione 7. The reaction of 2 with carbamides/thiocarbamides produced 6-oxo-oxazolo[4,5-b] piperazine 5 /2-substituted imino-6-oxo-thiazolo[4,5-b] piperazine 6. Compound 7 on combination with carbamides/ thiocarbamides was transformed to 1-oxo-2-substituted imino-3,5,8-triaza-3H,5H,8H,7-dihydro-6,9-dioxo-spiro [3.5] nonane 9 and 1-thia-2-substituted imino-3,5,8-triaza-3H,5H,8H-7dihydro-6,9-dioxo-spiro [3.5] nonane 9.
