Cover Story (view full-size image): Bis(alkylsulfanyl) derivatives of heteroaromatic compounds containing long alkyl chain are of interest as compounds with device applications, in particular, in liquid crystalline materials. 4,7-Bis(dodecylthio)-[1,2,5]thiadiazolo[3,4-c]pyridine was successfully prepared from 4,7-dibromo-[1,2,5]thiadiazolo[3,4-c]pyridine through 7-bromo-4-(dodecylthio)-[1,2,5]thiadiazolo[3,4-c]pyridine by combining two synthetic procedures: aromatic nucleophilic substitution SNAr and Buchwald–Hartwig cross-coupling reaction. The structures of the intermediate 7-bromo-4-(dodecylthio)-[1,2,5]thiadiazolo[3,4-c]pyridine and 4,7-bis(dodecylthio)-[1,2,5]thiadiazolo[3,4-c]pyridine were fully characterized by elemental analysis, high-resolution mass spectrometry, 1H, 13C NMR and IR spectroscopy, and mass spectrometry.

The natural product lupeol (1) was isolated from Bombax ceiba leaves, which were used as starting material in the semisynthetic approach. Three new derivatives (2a, 2b, and 3) were synthesized using oxidation and aldolization. Their chemical structures were elucidated by spectroscopic analyses (HRESIMS and NMR). Compounds 3 showed significant α-glucosidase inhibition with an IC50 value of 202 µM, whereas 2a and 2b were inactive. Full article

4-Amino-imidazo-, oxazolo-, and thiazoloquinolines are key structural scaffolds in the design of nucleoside base analogs for use as therapeutic agents. Current strategies for arriving at diverse substitutions at the C6–C9 positions of the thiazolo- and oxazoloquinolines, however, are limited due to difficulties in arriving at the thiazoloquinoline-5N-oxide intermediate using electron deficient aromatic systems. Here, we demonstrate a synthetic route to obtain substituted thiazoloquinolines with electron-withdrawing groups at the C7 position. The target compound, 4-amino-2-butyl-7-methoxycarbonylthiazolo[4,5-c]quinoline, is obtained in eight steps using a 7-bromo surrogate as a precursor to the successful generation of the N-oxide intermediate, and final transformation via Pd-mediated C7-acylation.

The presented method is based on the multicomponent condensation of 5-hydroxy-4,7-dimethyl-2H-chromen-2-one, 4-methoxyphenylglyoxal and Meldrum’s acid. It was shown that the studied reaction proceeds in two steps including the initial interaction of starting materials in MeCN and the final formation of furylacetic acid moiety in acidic media. The structures of the obtained compound were established by 1H, 13C-NMR spectroscopy and high-resolution mass spectrometry. Full article

In following series, by cyclization reactions of compounds 4 (a-e) with sodium azide, analogue 3-substituted pyridin-2-yl and pyrimidin-2-yl-5-methyl-2,5-dihydro-1H-tetrazol-5-yl]-4-hydroxy-chromen-2-one 5(a-e) are synthesized the products. Structural characterization of the synthesized products is done on the basis of spectrometric data. Antibacterial activity of the compounds 4(a-e) and 5(a-e) against S. aureus, E. coli and Klebsiella was examined by measuring the inhibition zones around the disks marked with the corresponding products solution. The impact of substitutions in antimicrobial is also explored. Compounds with polar groups have shown significant antibacterial activity against these microorganisms. Full article

This communication describes an unprecedented substitution cascade, in which 4-methylpyridine, following deprotonation with LDA, twice acts as a carbon nucleophile in an unusual SNAr process, to form a novel triarylmethane structure. A proposed mechanism for this sequence is presented that is supported by single crystal X-ray analysis of the resulting product. We believe this unique transformation is of note as it highlights a neat and efficient entry as a single step to complex triarylmethane architectures containing both substituted phenyl and pyridyl aromatics.

The alternative basic work up in air gave the epoxide derivative of CF3-Bis-TEMPO-Vis. Unlike the latter CF3-epoxide, both alkoxyamine residues are labile under green light (470–600 nm), and the rate of TEMPO release is three times slower than Bis-TEMPO-Vis. Full article

A new 11H-indeno[1,2-b]quinoxalin-11-one-2-(4-ethylbenzylidene)hydrazone (compound 3) was synthesized. Compound 3 is the first example of an azine derivative based on the 11H-indeno[1,2-b]quinoxaline system. The Z,E-isomerism of compound 3 was investigated by DFT calculations. Bioavailability was evaluated in silico using ADME predictions. According to the ADME results, compound 3 is potentially highly bioavailable and has potential to be used for the treatment of neuroinflammation and ischemia–reperfusion injury. Full article

5-propyl-2-((trityloxy)methyl)thiophene-3-carbaldehyde was synthesized by using the concept of chemo- and regioselective Br/Li exchange reaction from 3-bromo-5-propyl-2-((trityloxy)methyl)thiophene. This is a five-step protocol starting from thiophene with an overall yield of 33%. These lithium/halogen exchange reactions were carried out at −78 °C to rt over [...] Read more.

N-acetylcysteine (NAC) is mainly administrated as a mucolytic medication, antioxidant supplement, antidote in paracetamol overdose, and a drug for the prevention of diabetic kidney disease. Its effect has been investigated for the treatment of several diseases such as COVID-19. In this work, an effective method for high-yield synthesis of N-acetylcysteine is proposed. This drug can be synthesized in a single-batch step instead of using a multi-stage process. The proposed method has shown the potential to be considered as an alternative method for producing NAC. The purification process was carried out using suitable solvents to reach a high level of purity. The characterization of the synthesized drug was undertaken through Elemental analysis, Proton Nuclear Magnetic Resonance (1H NMR), High Performance Liquid Chromatography (HPLC), Fourier Transform Infrared Spectroscopy (FT-IR), and melting point analyses.

The product was characterized by 1H, 13C NMR and HRMS. The combination of BODIPY core with tertiary benzilyc alcohol might be promising for utilizing this molecule as visible light removable PPG.

We have previously published new biheterocyclic phospohonic α-amino esters of the 1,2,3-triazole-benzimidazole and 1,2,3-triazole-carbazole type. The aim of the present paper was to describe a new phosponic aminoester bearing a triazole ring substituted in position 5 by an ester group. Thus, according to the same catalytic process used previously, the compound naphthalen-2-yl 1-(benzamido(diethoxyphosphoryl)methyl)-1H-1,2,3-triazole-4-carboxylate was synthesized with an excellent yield and high regioselectivity via the copper (I)-catalyzed alkyne–azide cycloaddition reaction (CuAAC), using diethyl (α-azido(benzamido)methyl)phosphonate (1) as a dipole and 2- naphthyl propiolate as a dipolarophile (2). The structure of the new compound was fully characterized by 1D (31P, 1H-, 13C-) and 2D (1H-1H and 1H-, 13C-) NMR spectroscopy, IR, and HRMS. Full article

The Knoevenagel reaction is an essential synthetic tool in the organic and medicinal chemistry of thiazolidin-4-one derivatives. In the present work, the application of ethylenediamine diacetate (EDDA) as an effective catalyst for the interaction of 2-thioxothiazolidin-4-one with 4-(tert-butyl)cyclohexanone is proposed. The structure of novel synthesized 5-[4-(tert-butyl)cyclohexylidene]-2-thioxothiazolidin-4-one (yield 61%) was confirmed by 1H-, 13C-NMR, LC-MS, IR, and UV spectra. Drug-like properties of the synthesized compound were evaluated in silico using the SwissAdme, and their potential antimicrobial activity against 15 strains of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria as well as yeasts was evaluated in vitro. The synthesized compound possesses satisfactory drug-like parameters and promising antimicrobial properties and presents interest as a prospective intermediate for the forthcoming design of biologically active small molecules.
