Systematic screening based on structural similarity of drugs such as colchicine and podophyllotoxin led to identification of noscapine, a microtubule-targeted agent that attenuates the dynamic instability of microtubules without affecting the total polymer mass of microtubules. We report a new generation of noscapine derivatives as potential tubulin binding(More)
In the title compound, C(15)H(10)O(5), the cyclo-penta-none (r.m.s. deviation = 0.049 Å) and oxolane (r.m.s. deviation = 0.048 Å) rings make a dihedral angle of 67.91 (4)°. An intra-molecular O-H⋯O hydrogen bond is observed. In the crystal, mol-ecules associate via O-H⋯O hydrogen bonds, forming a three-dimensional network.
In the title urea derivative, C9H12N2O, the dihedral angle between the benzene ring and the mean plane of the urea group, N-C(=O)-N, is 86.6 (1)°. In the crystal, the urea O atom is involved in three N-H⋯O hydrogen bonds. Mol-ecules are linked via pairs of N-H⋯O hydrogen bonds, forming inversion dimers with an R (2) 2(8) ring motif. The dimers are linked by(More)
In the title carbazole derivative, C32H32N2, the mol-ecule resides on a crystallographic twofold axis, which runs through the central C-C bond. The carbazole ring system is almost planar, with a maximum deviation of 0.041 (1) Å for one of the ring-junction C atoms. The crystal packing is stabilized by C-H⋯π inter-actions only, which form a C(7) chain-like(More)
In the crystal of the title salt, C6H9N2O2S(+)·ClO4 (-), the components are linked by N-H⋯O hydrogen bonds, forming a three-dimensional network. The cations are connected along a and b axes, leading to linear and zigzag C(3) and C(8) chain motifs, respectively. A cation-anion inter-action along the c axis leads to a C 2 (2)(12) chain motif. R 3 (3)(18) and(More)
We have strategically designed a series of noscapine derivatives by inserting biaryl pharmacophore (a major structural constituent of many of the microtubule-targeting natural anticancer compounds) onto the scaffold structure of noscapine. Molecular interaction of these derivatives with α,β-tubulin heterodimer was investigated by molecular docking,(More)
The title compound, C(7)H(8)NO(2) (+)·Br(-)·H(2)O, is isomorphous with 2-carboxy-anilinium chloride monohydrate and contains an intra-molecular N-H⋯O hydrogen bond, forming an S(6) motif. The main inter-molecular inter-actions are of the N-H⋯O/Br and O-H⋯O/Br types. Hydrogen-bonding dimers are formed via the carboxyl groups and the uncoordinated water(More)
In the title pyrrolizidine derivative, C33H26F2N2O2, both pyrrolidine rings of the pyrrolizidine moiety adopt an envelope conformation. The di-fluoro-phenyl group is oriented at an angle of 54.3 (1)° with respect to the oxindole moiety. The crystal packing features an N-H⋯O hydrogen bond, which forms an R 2 (2)(8) motif, and a C-H⋯O inter-action, which(More)
In the title compound, C(25)H(22)ClNO(3)S, both the pyrrolidinyl and thia-zolyl rings adopt envelope conformations whereas the dihydro-pyran ring adopts a half-chair conformation. The chloro-phenyl and naphthalenyl ring systems are oriented at a dihedral angle of 59.7 (1)°. The crystal packing is stabilized by an intra-molecular C-H⋯N hydrogen bond and weak(More)
A novel bicyclization of 2-(2-(hydroxymethyl)-1-methylene-2,3-dihydro-1H-inden-2-yl)ethanol with aldehydes in the presence of 10 mol% BF3·OEt2 in dichloromethane at 0-25 °C affords the biologically relevant indeno[2,1-c]pyran scaffolds in good yields with high selectivity. Similarly the bicyclization of 2-(1-(hydroxymethyl)-2-methylenecyclopentyl)ethanol(More)
