In search of novel antiviral and anticancer agents with promising pharmacotoxicological profile, a study was initiated to synthesize new 2-thioxo-4-thiazolidinones as well as 2-phenylimino-4-thiazolidinones substituted with benzimidazole ring system. The compounds were screened primarily for their antiviral as well as anticancer activities. The synthesis of(More)
Synthesis and biological evaluation of novel pyrazoles and pyrazolo[3,4-d]pyrimidines are reported. Fourteen compounds were selected by the NCI and tested for their preliminary in-vitro anticancer activity, whereas all the synthesized compounds were evaluated for their in-vitro antimicrobial activity. Compound 12a was proven to possess the highest(More)
New series of 2,5-dihydroxyphenyl-1,3-thiazoles 4a–l was synthesized by reacting 2,5-dihydroxyphenacyl bromide with various 4-aryl thiosemicarbazones 3a–l that on oxidation with ferric chloride yielded the corresponding N 1-substituted benzylidene-N 2-[3-aryl-4-(1,4-benzoquinon-2-yl)-1,3-thiazol-2-ylidene]hydrazines 5a–l. They were evaluated for(More)
This work describes the synthesis of new series of compounds derived from methyl pyridyl- 2,4-dioxobutanoates that contain pyridine ring attached to substituted bioactive heterocyclic moieties in order to investigate their preliminary in vitro antibacterial and antifungal activities. The results revealed that most of the tested compounds exhibited(More)
Synthesis and evaluation of anticancer and antimicrobial activity of some novel pyrazolopyrimidines and fused pyrazolopyrimidines are reported. Twelve analogs were selected to be evaluated for their in vitro anticancer potential against a panel of three human tumor cell lines: hepatocellular carcinoma HepG2, cervical carcinoma HelaS3 and colon carcinoma(More)
Two novel series derived from 3-phenylquinoxaline-2(1H)-thione 2 and 2-(hydrazinocarbonylmethylthio)-3-phenylquinoxaline 6 have been synthesized. Eight out of twenty six new compounds were selected at the National Cancer Institute for evaluation of their in vitro-anticancer activity. Among them, compounds 3b, 3c, 4b, and 4c displayed moderate to strong(More)
The synthesis of two novel series of quinol dimethyl ethers linked to either various functionalities or to some biologically active nitrogenous heterocycles is described. Nine of the newly synthesized quinol dimethyl ethers 5a, b, 9b, 10a, d, 12a, b, and 13a, b were selected by the NCI and were tested initially at a single high dose (10 μM) in the full NCI(More)
