The catalyst-free addition of 2-methylazaarene benzylic sp3 C-H to electron-deficient olefins in deep eutectic solvents is reported. Moderate to good yields were obtained in 2 h at 80 °C in deep eutectic solvents. The method was operationally easy and involved mild reaction conditions. This expands the application of deep eutectic solvent in sp3 C-H functionalization reaction.

*Chemistry, Taif University, Taif 21995, Saudi Arabia


Several new furan-based heterocycles were prepared by the reaction of furan-chalcone derivative 1 and/or furylpyrazole thioamide derivative 2 with various electrophilic reagents (e.g. 4-anisaldehyde, thiosemicarbazide, dimethylformamide dimethyl acetal, phenyl isothiocyanate, N-cyanoacetyl-pyrazole and nitrous acid). Spectroscopic and elemental analyses were applied to emphasize the structures of these furan containing scaffolds. The newly constructed furan-chalcones and furylpyrazoles were tested for their cytotoxicity on hepatocellular cancer (HepG-2), breast cancer (MCF-7) and colon cancer (HCT-116). The pyrazole scaffold 10 exhibited the highest cytotoxic effect against the tested cell lines HepG2 (IC50 7.36±0.6 μg/mL), HTC-116 (IC50 8.14±0.8 μg/mL), and MCF-7 (IC50 12.16±0.8 μg/mL), compared with the standard anticancer drug Doxorubicin (DOX). Binding mode of the most active compound 10 was illustrated using docking methods that were processed in the same co-crystallographic inhibitor binding site, docking was revealed same interaction of compound 10 analogous to the binding of native inhibitor.

The absolute configurations of cyanohydrins are readily determined via an exciton-coupled circular dichroism (ECCD) protocol using bidentate bis(zinc porphyrin) host molecule BP1 as a CD-sensitive chirality probe. UV–vis and NMR studies revealed a monodentate binding mode of cyanohydrin with BP1. Based on these studies, a simple working model using a Newman projection of cyanohydrins was established, allowing BP1 to determine the stereochemistry of various cyanohydrins in a non-empirical and unambiguous manner.

Phytochemical investigation of Anisacanthus virgularis aerial parts resulted in isolation of a new iridoid glucoside named as 7-O-p-trans-coumaroyl caryoptoside (1) together with two known iridoids, caryoptoside (2) and lamalbide (3). Their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic methods including 1D and 2D-NMR techniques. The isolated compounds together with the MeOH and aqueous extracts of the plant were investigated for their antiamoebic activity in vitro. The micro dilution technique was employed to investigate antiamoebic activity against Entamoeba histolytica HM1-SS strain. The results showed that the MeOH extract had good inhibition along 72 hours followed by the aqueous extract at concentration of 15 mg/mL. The compounds 1-3 showed good inhibition growth percent 72.2%, 50.1% and 52.6% after 24 hours of incubation at a concentration of 4 μM, respectively compared to the standard antiamoebic drug, Metronidazole.

Trifunctionalized Allenes. Part VI. Synthesis of 2,5-Dihydro-1,2-oxaphospholes, Furan-2(5H)-ones and 5,6-Dihydro-2H-pyrans by Electrophilic Cyclization and Cycloisomerization of 4-Phosphorylated 6-Hydroxyhepta-2,3-dienoates

We have synthesized model compounds of three types heterocyclic compounds by electrophilic cyclization and cycloisomerization of 4-phosphorylated 6-hydroxyhepta-2,3-dienoates. Reactions with electrophiles produce mixtures of the 2,5-dihydro-1,2-oxaphosphole-5-carboxylates and the 5-phosphorylfuran-2(5H)-ones by competitive electrophilic cyclization due to the neighboring phosphonate (phosphine oxide) and the carboxylate groups participation. Starting compounds were smoothly converted into the corresponding 4-phosphoryl-5,6-dihydro-2H-pyran-2-carboxylates, by using 5 mol% of a silver salt as a catalyst in the 6-endo-trig cycloisomerization reaction.

A new γ-butenolide glycoside, named styphonoloside A (1), was isolated from the root of Styphonolobium japonicum (L.) Schott (= Sophora japonica L.), together with saikoisoflavonoside A (2) and sophoraside A (3). The structure of 1 was characterized as puerol B 2”-O-neohesperidoside based on one- and two-dimensional (1D and 2D) NMR, MS, and electronic circular dichroism (ECD) spectral data. The absolute configuration of the aglycone moiety of 1 was assigned by comparing its experimental ECD spectrum with the calculated ECD spectrum.

A series of novel benzo[e][1,3,2]diazaphosphinino[1,6-c][1,3,2]-oxazaphosphinine derivatives (3a-f) were synthesized by cyclization reactions of 6-(2-hydroxyphenyl)-2-phenyl-1H-2-oxido-1,3,2-diazaphosphinine (2) with some phosphorus dichlorides in the presence of triethylamine in dry dioxane under reflux. The structures of all the synthesized compounds were established by IR, 1H-, 13C- and 31P-NMR spectra as well as by elemental analysis and mass spectral analysis.
