The essential oils of air-dried Centaurea sessilis and Centaurea armena obtained by hydrodistillation were analyzed by gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS). Forty and twenty components were identified in the essential oils and the main component of these taxons was beta-eudesmol in the ratios of 12.4% and 19.3% from C. sessilis and C. armena,(More)
Two new azachalcones were prepared by both Claisen-Schmidt condensation and a simple environmentally trendy microwave-assisted method. Ten new N-alkyl (C6,8,10,12,14)-substituted azachalconium bromides (3a-e, 4a-e) were prepared from compounds 1 and 2 with corresponding alkyl halides. The antimicrobial activities of all the compounds were tested against(More)
Photodimerization reactions of compounds 4-6 gave four new cyclobutane-containing compounds (7-9) with full control over the stereochemistry at the four stereogenic centers. These new cyclobutane-containing compounds had beta-truxinic (7a), delta-truxinic (7b and 9), and epsilon-truxillic (8) structures. However, o-, m-, and p-hydroxy 4-azachalcones (1-3)(More)
N-alkyl substituted 2',3″-thiazachalcones {3-[(1E)-3-(4-methylthiophene-2-yl)-3-oxoprop-1-en-1-yl]-1-alkyl (C5-12,14) pyridinium bromides} were synthesized by a two-step reaction. The newly synthesized compounds were characterized by IR, 1H NMR, 13C NMR, elemental analysis and mass spectral studies. The synthesized compounds were tested for antibacterial(More)
