*Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Science, Fayoum University, 63514 Fayoum, Egypt


A novel series of coumarin derivatives has been disclosed by allowing 2-aminonicotinonitrile derivative 1 to undergo alkylation, diazotization, and condensation reactions. Moreover, different reagents, such as thiourea, phenyl isothiocyanate, carbon disulfide, ethylenediamine, and hydroxylamine hydrochloride, have been exploited to synthesize more coumarin derivatives, aiming to increase the synthetic potential of coumarin and study the antibacterial activities of the newly synthesized compounds.

Bis(thiazol-5-yl)phenyl- and bis(thiazol-5-yl)methanes were synthesized by the reaction of 2,4-disubstituted thiazoles with aromatic aldehydes or formaldehyde. In addition, modification of the carboxyl group of the molecule was carried out. The reactions afforded compounds bearing various heterocyclic fragments. All the synthesized compounds were tested for their effect on Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus and Mycobacterium luteum bacteria and Aspergillus niger and Candida tenuis fungi strains. Some of them exhibited antibacterial activity against test-culture Mycobacterium luteum.

We design and synthesize a series of novel pyrazole amides based on the commercialized fungicides and our previous work. The antifungal activity was tested in vitro by mycelial growth inhibition assay. The results show that all the compounds are of antifungal activities against the tested fungi at different levels. Among them, N-(2-(7-bromo-5-chloro-1H-indazol-1-yl)phenyl)-3-(difluoromethyl)-1-methyl-1H-pyrazole-4-carboxamide (Vk) exhibited higher antifungal activity than boscalid against two fungi. Molecular docking study revealed that the carbonyl oxygen atom of Vk forms two hydrogen bonds toward the hydroxyl hydrogens of TYR58 and TRP173.

Three new flavones (13), together with six known flavones (49), were isolated from the fruits of Vernicia fordii collected from Hunan province of China. Their structures were characterized by means of extensive spectroscopic analyses. Compounds 13 and 9 were evaluated for their anti-tobacco mosaic virus (anti-TMV) activity. The results showed that compound 9 exhibited high anti-TMV activity with inhibition rate of 32.6%. This inhibition rate is close to that of positive control (33.8%). Compounds 13 also showed potential anti-TMV activities with inhibition rates of 26.8%, 29.2%, and 25.7%, respectively.

Thromboxane A2, a potent platelet aggregation factor, contains a labile 2,6-dioxabicyclo[3.1.1]heptane as the core moiety. Dibromo compounds with a similar core structure were synthesized by the cyclization of tribromides derived from D-glucal.

A Convenient Synthesis of Indole and 1,4-Dihydropyridine Hybrid Macromolecules by Dimerization of [2-(1H-Indol-3-yl)ethyl]pyridinium Salts

The design and synthesis of a novel type of macrocyclic compounds containing indole and 1,4-dihydropyridine heterocyclic subunits is presented. The key reaction involved in the synthesis was a base-mediated dimerization of [2-(1H-indol-3-yl)ethyl]pyridinium salts. The structure of the macrocycles was unambiguously confirmed by NMR and HRMS spectroscopic and X-ray single crystal diffraction.

An asymmetric total synthesis and structure confirmation of (+)-(3E)-isolaurefucin methyl ether (2a) was accomplished. Our synthesis features two complementary routes to construct the α,α’-trans-2,8- dioxabicyclo[5.2.1]decane skeleton of the natural product from α,α’-trans-γ,δ-unsaturated oxocene alcohol 7, namely, an intramolecular epoxide opening route and a novel methoxyetherification route based on organoselenium- mediated oxonium ion formation/fragmentation. A computational analysis was performed to model the observed different fragmentation behaviors of the respective oxonium ions 8 and 8’ derived from α,α’-trans- and α,α’-cis-γ,δ-unsaturated oxocene alcohols 7 and 7’ during the organoselenium-mediated oxonium ion formation/fragmentation. Regarding the possibility of the natural product being an artifact, the reactivity of chlorofucin surrogate 16 and neoprelaurefucin surrogate 16’ during methanolysis was compared, the results were in good agreement with calculations.
