The polystyrene-supported isothiourea catalysts, derived from the homogeneous catalyst BTMs, were synthesized and applied to the site-selective acylation of carbohydrates. The catalysts can be recovered and reused conveniently for 10 cycles without significantly loss in either activity or selectivity. It offers a sustainable and environmentally benign approach for the site-selective functionalization of carbohydrates.

2-{1-[2-(1,3-Dimethyl-4-nitro-1H-pyrazol-5-yl)hydrazono]ethyl}- pyridine has been prepared from 5-hydrazino-1,3-dimethyl-4-nitro-1H-pyrazole and 2-acetylpyridine in an ethanolic solution. It crystallizes as an (E/Z) isomeric pair in the triclinic space group P-1 with the lattice parameters: a = 10.357(1) Å, b = 11.613(1) Å, c = 13.069(1) Å, α = 67.74(1)°, β = 70.77(1)°, γ = 67.92(1)°, volume = 1315.6(3) Å3, Z = 2. The isomeric pair (E/Z) is contained in the unit cell, where the N-H group is H-bonded to the pyridine nitrogen and to the oxygen of the nitro group in the Z-isomer and to the oxygen of the nitro group only in the E-isomer. NMR showed that the E-isomer is the major. DFT calculations were performed to further investigate the electronic properties of the synthesized compound.

*Department of Medicinal Chemistry and Pharmacognosy, Faculty of Pharmacy, University of Petra, Amman 11196, Jordan


A new set of tetrahydro-3,3'-bi(1,2,4,5-oxatriazines) 3a-e has been prepared via condensation reaction of alkanone- and cycloalkanone N-methylhydrazones with bis-nitrile oxide. Structures of the synthesized bis-heterocycles are based on IR, NMR and MS spectral data and further confirmed by single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis for compounds 3a and 3d. Compound 3c exhibited inhibitory activity against butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) with IC50 = 1.75 × 10-5 μM.

Ring-Opening Metathesis of N-Alkenyl β-Lactams

Sambasivarao Kotha,* Sunil Pulletikurti, and Yuvaraj Dommaraju

*Department of Chemistry, Indian Institute of Technology-Bombay, Powai, Mumbai-400 076, India


We have synthesized a new class of N-alkenylated β-lactam derivatives and studied their metathetic behavior. Here, ring-opening metathesis is more favorable than ring-rearrangement metathesis. Molecular modelling studies revealed that the orientation of two olefinic moieties of β-lactam derivatives are far apart and therefore ring-rearrangement metathesis did not occur and ring-opening metathesis is only feasible.

*Chemical Science and Technology Division, CSIR-North East Institute of Science & Technology, Jorhat, Assam, India 785006


In the past two decades, our laboratory has been actively engaged in the design and synthesis of novel heterosteroidal analogues. Three functional groups namely β-formylenamide, conjugated enone and β-formylvinyl halide were primarily employed in various reactions to afford a library of novel heterosteroids. The synthetic strategies have been concomitantly utilized in the relevant non-steroidal β-formylenamides, conjugated enones and β-formylvinyl halides.

*Department of Integrative Pharmaceutical Sciences, Faculty of Pharmaceutical Sciences, Setsunan University, 45-1 Nagaotoge-cho, Hirakata, Osaka 573-0101, Japan


The reaction of 2,3,5,6,7,8-hexahydroquinoxaline with thiourea derivatives yields a propellane-type tetraazaindene structure, whose conformation was established by 2D NMR analysis and molecular orbital calculations, and verified by single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis. Further, the result obtained from X-ray analysis of this propellane-type tetraazaindene structure indicated that the crystalline state was stabilized by specific hydrogen bonds; four hydrogen bonds were of the type >C=S•••H–N, four of N–H•••N type between the imidazolidine moieties, and two of >C=S•••H–C type.

Heterocyclization of (2E,2'E)-4,6-bis[3-(dimethylamino)prop-2-en-1-oxo-1-yl]resorcinol (2) with nitrogen-containing binucleophiles afforded the target compounds. All the newly synthesized compounds were characterized by spectral tools.

*Department of Chemical Science and Engineering, Kobe University, 1-1 Rokkodai, Nada, Kobe 657-8501, Japan


A practical synthesis of 4,4-dimethyl-2-oxazolines on pyrrole was achieved via the cyclization of the corresponding amides, which were derived from the trichloroacetylpyrroles. The established conditions were applicable to pyrroles bearing a ketone or an ester moiety. In addition to pyrroles, the method could be extended to the synthesis of the indole derivative.

*Applied Chemistry Field, Chemistry and Biotechnology Course, Department of Engineering, Graduate School of Sustainability Science, Tottori University, 4-101 Koyama-minami, Tottori 680-8552, Japan


An efficient method for the preparation of 2H-benzo[b]thiete derivatives under mild conditions has been developed. The reaction of 2-(1-arylethenyl)phenyl bromides with butyllithium at –78 ˚C generates 2-(1-arylethenyl)phenyllithiums, which are successively treated with sulfur and Boc2O at the same temperature to afford S-[2-(1-arylethenyl)phenyl] O-tert-butyl carbonothioates. These compounds are then treated with TFA at 0 or 20 ˚C to yield 2-aryl-2-methyl-2H-benzo[b]thietes via formation of the 4-aryl-4-methyl-4H-3,1-benzoxathiin-2-ones followed by decarboxylation.

An efficient procedure has been developed for the preparation of 7-(alkylsulfanyl)[1,4]dithiino[2,3-d]pyrimidine-6-carbonitrile derivatives from 4,6-dichloro-2-(methylsulfanyl)pyrimidine (DCSMP). 2-{[4-Chloro-2-(methylsulfanyl)pyrimidin-5-yl]sulfanyl}acetonitriles are prepared via the reaction of the 5-lithio derivative of DCSMP with sulfur and then 2-bromoacetonitrile. These can be converted into the desired products on treatment with carbon disulfide in the presence of sodium hydride followed by alkyl halides. This is the first construction of the [1,4]dithiino[2,3-d]pyrimidine structure.
