Network routing protocols work in a vulnerable environment. Unless protected by appropriate security measures, their operation can be easily subverted by intruders capable of modifying, deleting or adding false information in routing updates. This paper first analyses threats to the secure operation of inter-domain routing protocols, and then proposes(More)
5-azido-5-deoxy-xylo-, ribo-, and arabinofuranoses were prepared by the reaction of the respective 5-O-(methanesulfonyl) or p-toluenesulfonyl derivatives with NaN3 in DMF. The intermediate 5-azido-5-deoxy glycofuranoses on 1,3-cycloaddition with different alkynes in the presence of CuSO4 and sodium ascorbate gave the corresponding sugar triazoles in very(More)
Piper betle Linn. is a traditional plant associated with the Asian and southeast Asian cultures. Its use is also recorded in folk medicines in these regions. Several of its medicinal properties have recently been proven. Phytochemical analysis showed the presence of mainly terpenes and phenols in betel leaves. These constituents vary in the different(More)
A series of biphenyl-1,3,4-oxadiazoles namely 5-[substituted-(1,1'-biphenyl)-3-yl]-1,3,4-oxadiazole-2(3H)-thiones and its S-alkyl derivatives have been synthesized by multi step organic synthesis involving Suzuki-Miyaura coupling using palladium catalyst. The synthesized compounds were characterized by (1)H NMR, (13)C NMR, (19)F NMR, IR and LCMS(More)
We present, for the first time, spectral behaviour of aerosol optical depths (AODs) over Manora Peak, Nainital located at an altitude of ∼ 2 km in the Shivalik ranges of central Himalayas. The observations were carried out using a Multi-Wavelength solar Radiometer during January to December 2002. The main results of the study are extremely low AODs during(More)
A rapid and sensitive ultra high performance liquid chromatography electrospray ionization tandem mass spectrometry method was developed and validated for the simultaneous determination of 13 flavonoids in leaf, stem, and fruit extracts of male and female trees of Ginkgo biloba to investigate gender- and age-related variations of flavonoids content.(More)
A series of 1-[(4-benzyloxyphenyl)-but-3-enyl]-1H-azoles has been identified as potent antitubercular agents against Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Synthesis of compounds involved acid catalyzed ring-opening of cyclopropyl ring of phenyl cyclopropyl methanols followed by nucleophilic attack of the azoles on the carbocation intermediates. Several of the(More)
In search of pharmalogically active molecules in the class of oxadiazoles, the present article deals with the synthesis of 5-(5′-fluoro-2′-methoxybiphenyl-3-yl)-1,3,4-oxadiazol-2(3H)-one 2 from its hydrazide analog 1. The compound 2 was regioselectively N-alkylated with alkyl halides and produced the compounds 3a–f. Compound 3f was further functionalized(More)
The high potential of quinazolinone containing natural products and their derivatives in medicinal chemistry led us to discover four novel series of 53 compounds of quinazolinone based on the concept of molecular hybridization. Most of the synthesized analogues exhibited potent leishmanicidal activity against intracellular amastigotes (IC50 from 0.65 ± 0.2(More)
Several diversity-oriented syntheses of N-fused polycyclic heterocycles have been demonstrated but most of them are based on point diversity within the same library and usually involve time-consuming sequential multistep syntheses, which also suffer from low yields and/or poor precursor scopes. We have developed a new strategy for the syntheses of skeletal(More)
