Study of [1,3] sigmatropic hydrogen migration in thymine, thymidine and thymidylic acid by AM1 method


The geometry and electronic structures of thymine, thymidine and thymidylic acid involving [1,3] sigmatropic hydrogen migration in the formation of tautomers have been fully optimized and evaluated by semi-empirical molecular orbital AM1 method. Thermodynamic parameters and mechanistic aspects have been investigated and are discussed.

A convenient synthesis of 2(2-benzo[b]furo)­indoles and benzofuropyrazoles


A short synthesis of benzo[b]furo indolyls 3a-g from 2-acetylbenzofuran 1 in two steps and corresponding pyrazoles 4a-g is described. An interesting scale up procedure for the synthesis of 2-acetylbenzofuran is also reported. This is the first report for the synthesis of benzofuroindolyl biheterocycle via Fischer indole cyclisation in ZnCl2/ CH3CN.

Chalcones, pyrazolines and aminopyrimidines as antibacterial agents


2,4–Bis-ethylamino-6-[4'-{3"-(substitutedphenyl/2'"-furanyl)-2"-propenon -1"-yl} phenyl amino]-s-triazine 5a-d have been prepared by treating ketone 4 with different substituted aromatic and heterocyclic aldehydes in the presence of alkali. These chalcones 5a-d on cyclisation with hydrazine hydrate and guanidine nitrate to form pyrazolines 6a-d and aminopyrimidines 7a-d respectively. The structures of the synthesized compounds have  been established on the bases of IR, 1H NMR and elemental analysis. The compounds have been evaluated for antibacterial activity against E. coli,
S. paratyphi-A, S. aureus and B. subtilis .

Synthesis of 6,7-dihydroxy-3-aryl-5-undecyl-4,1,2-benzoxadiazines


Condensation of Embelin 1 with different aromatic acid hydra­zides 2 in glacial acetic acid to give N1-5-hydroxy-6-undecyl-p-benzoaquinon-2-yl)-benzohydrides 3. Reductive cyclization of the product 3 with simultaneous acetylation in situ resulted in the formation of the compound 4 1-N-acetyl-6,7-diacetyl-3-aryl-5-undecyl-4,1,2-benzoxadiazine.
