Synthesis of a novel water soluble phthalimide derivative of acetaminophen as potential analgesic and antipyretic agent
Title: Synthesis of a novel water soluble phthalimide derivative of acetaminophen as potential analgesic and antipyretic agent
Authors: Reddy, Y Dathu; Kumari, Y Bharathi; Dubey, P K
Abstract: A short process for the
preparation of water soluble, potential analgesic compound,
N-[(4-hydroxy-phenylcarbamoyl)-methyl]-phthalamic acid 4 has been
developed. Two synthetic routes (A and B) have been established for the
In route A, 4-aminophenol 5 is reacted with chloroacetyl chloride 6 in
solution of potassium acetate and acetic acid at 0-5°C to yield
N-(4-hydroxyphenyl)-2-chloroacetamide 7. The latter is reacted with potassium phthalimide 8 and KI in DMF at 130°C
to give 3. Alternatively, in route B, reaction of phthalic anhydride 8
with glycine 9 at 150°C yields the acid intermediate
(1,3-dioxo-1,3-dihydro-isoindol-2-yl)-acetic acid 11, which on reaction
with 4-aminophenol 6 in DMF and in the presence of dicyclohexylcarbodimide
gives 3. The latter is hydrolysed in
ethanolic KOH to afford 4.
Studies on reactions of anhydrides with Schiff bases
Title: Studies on reactions of anhydrides with Schiff bases
Authors: Kumar, Padam Praveen; Mohiuddin, S M G; Devi, B Rama; Dubey, P K
Abstract: Reaction of phthalic
anhydride 1 with benzylidineanilines
2, in equimolar ratio in hot acetic
acid, yields N-arylphthalimides 3.
Compound 1 reacts with the arylimine
part of the Schiff base eliminating benzaldehyde part 4 as the bye-product. This reaction of 1 with 2 is also found
to occur with other anhydrides like succinic anhydride 5, maleic anhydride 7
and acetic anhydride 9 resulting in
the formation of the corresponding N-arylimides, namely, succinicimide 6, maleicimide 8 and aceticimide 10
respectively. In all the above reactions, the by-product, i.e. benzaldehyde or p-chlorobenzaldehyde
can be isolated and characterized as its 2,4-dinitrophenylhydrazone derivative.
Probable mechanism for the formation of imides from the corresponding
anhydrides and Schiff bases has been suggested.
Synthesis of some new isoxazolyldihydro[1,2,4]triazolo[1,5-b] isoxazoles and dihydroimidazo[4,5-b]indolylisoxazoles as possible biodynamic agents
Title: Synthesis of some new isoxazolyldihydro[1,2,4]triazolo[1,5-b] isoxazoles and dihydroimidazo[4,5-b]indolylisoxazoles as possible biodynamic agents
Authors: Rajanarendar, E; Venkateshwarlu, P; Ramakrishna, S
Abstract: Synthesis of new
and imidazo[4,5-b]indolyl isoxazoles
have been achieved by interaction of isoxazole Schiff base with isoxazole
amines and isatin respectively.
Antimicrobial evaluation of some novel isoxazoles, cyanopyridines and pyrimidinthiones
Title: Antimicrobial evaluation of some novel isoxazoles, cyanopyridines and pyrimidinthiones
Authors: Solankee, Anjani; Patel, Kirti; Patel, Rajnikant
Abstract: The title compounds 7a-f, 8a-f and 9a-f have been prepared from chalcones 6a-f having s-triazine nucleus. These chalcones on cyclisation with hydroxyl
amine hydrochloride in the presence of alkali and malononitrile in the presence
of ammonium acetate give isoxazoles 7a-f
and cyanopyridines 8a-f respectively.
Chalcones 6a-f on condensation with
thiourea in the presence of alkali give pyrimidinthiones 9a-f. Structures of newly synthesised compound have been established
on the basis of their elemental analysis, IR and 1H NMR
spectral data. All the synthesised compounds have been screened for their
