The pharmaceutical compound bicifadine hydrochloride, which has been found to crystallize in two polymorphic forms, has been characterized by thermal analysis, X-ray powder diffraction (XRPD), infrared (IR) spectroscopy, and near-infrared (NIR) spectroscopy. A series of 22 sample mixtures of polymorph 1 and polymorph 2 were prepared and calibration models(More)
alpha-Keto amides 10a,b, formed from reaction of pyruvic or benzoylformic acid with allyl amine are found to present as single rotameric forms whilst their tertiary amido analogues 10c, d present as two rotamers in solution at rt. The hydroxyimino derivatives 8 share the conformational characteristics of their parents. The geometrical make-up of the new(More)
Preparation of a series of terminally and internally substituted delta-alkenyl and delta-alkynyl esters 6, 7 and 9, potential precursors to oxazin-2-one nitrones, has been attempted. Condensation between pyruvic or benzoylformic acid and the appropriate alcohol proceeded smoothly in some cases whilst allylic transposition was a major feature in other(More)
The reaction between the heteroaromatic N-oxides 1a, 1b and 1c with dimethyl acetylenedicarboxylate or methyl propiolate furnishes 1,3-benzodiazepines, the products of ring transformations of primarily formed cycloadducts. The structures of 8a and 10a have been confirmed by X-ray crystallographic analysis. The aldonitrone 1c also reacts with(More)
The synthesis and crystal and molecular structures of the platinum(II) complex Pt(HL)Cl where H(2)L is the diacid diamide -[CH(2)N(CH(2)COOH)CH(2)CONH(2)](2), a hydrolytic metabolite of an antitumour active bis(3,5-dioxopiperazin-1-yl)alkane are reported. The complex is square planar and contains HL(-) as a tridentate 2N (amino), O (carboxylate) donor. The(More)
