A series of 3-((1-methyl-1H-pyrrol-2-yl)methylene)indolin-2-one derivatives were designed, synthesized, and evaluated for their inhibition activities against four tumor cells in vitro. These compounds were fully characterized by 1H NMR, 13C NMR, and HRMS. Antitumor experiments indicated that some compounds exhibited significant inhibition activities against SMMC-7721. Especially, the IC50 values of 7k and 7l (IC50 = 8.08 ± 0.95 µM, IC50 = 3.01 ± 0.61 µM) demonstrated the best antitumor activities against SMMC-7721 (human hepatoma cell lines) than the positive agents Sunitinib (IC50 = 8.27 ± 0.40 µM). Likewise, their structure activity relationship (SAR) was studied.

Optically active γ-lactams were prepared by asymmetric dicarbonylation reaction of N-arylsulfonyl homoallylic amines catalyzed by palladium in the presence of copper(I) triflate. By the use of benzyl-substituted bioxazoline ligand, the corresponding γ-lactams were obtained with enantioselectivities of up to 67% ee.

Herein, we report the application of 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition reaction toward the synthesis of a variety of 8-oxa-2-azabicyclo[3.2.1]octane compounds, the core structure of atkamine. The target compounds were obtained using a combination of a vinyl ether and carbonylylide, which was generated from a diazo compound and rhodium catalyst, in the presence of a Lewis acid.

It was found that a catalyst system RuCl2(PPh3)3/Xantphos is effective to install hydroxyethyl groups to the nitrogen atom of cyclic amines. Thus, the reactions of cyclic amines with ethylene glycol were performed in the presence of the RuCl2(PPh3)3/Xantphos catalyst in toluene at 120 °C for 22 h to provide the corresponding β-amino alcohols in up to 92% yield.

2-Cyano-N-(2,3-dihydro-1H-5-indenyl)-3-(dimethylamino)acrylamide (3) was used in synthetic paths to some novel indane-amide containing pyrazole, pyrimidine, fused pyrimidines, fused pyridines and 2-pyrone derivatives by reaction of 3 with various reagents. The newly synthesized compounds were investigated for their antioxidant activity. Some of the tested compounds exposed auspicious activities.

N-Methylated nitrogen heterocycles are important compounds which are very common in organic, pharmaceutical, and material chemistry. Development of new environmentally friendly catalytic methods for the synthesis of N-methylated heterocycles using cost-effective and readily-available starting materials is strongly demanded. Herein, we report the efficient synthesis of N-methylated heterocycles using readily-available aqueous solution of methylamine and various diols catalyzed by iridium complexes. This catalytic system is attractive because of its high atom economy exhausting water as a sole by-product.

A Biginelli-type reaction involving aliphatic aldehydes, aromatic aldehydes, and urea was performed at high concentration with high regioselectivity to give a range of highly diverse 3,4-dihydropyrimidin-2-(1H)-one products in 58-88% yields, where a 30% aqueous solution of ionic liquid (1-ethyl-3-methylimidazolium tetrafluoroborate) was employed as a green reaction medium. The catalyst can be easily recycled and reused with similar efficacy for at least four cycles.
