An efficient synthesis involving a key aldol reaction and biological properties of 1,3-diphenyl-2-propen-1-ones 8- 20 is described. The in vitro activity for 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radical scavenging of 10 and 11 was 2 times higher than that for resveratrol. Compounds 9 and 11 were the strongest in suppression of in vitro nitric oxide (NO)(More)
The synthesis and biological evaluation of 3,4,5-trimethoxyphenyl acrylamides 1a-f as novel antinarcotic agents are described. The molecules were prepared by the Wittig reaction, followed by a coupling reaction between 3,4,5-trimethoxycinnamic acid (9) and aliphatic amines, which resulted in good yields. When tested for biological activity, compounds 1d-f(More)
Daumone, a dauer-inducing pheromone and a series of lipid derivatives were synthesized from daumone to investigate structure-activity trends. Lipid derivatives demonstrated potent in vivo antiangiogenic activity on the chorioallantoic membrane, which exceeded that of fumagillin and thalidomide as reference agents. Among the 11 synthetic compounds tested,(More)
The total synthesis and structure determination of cis- and trans-flocoumafen was described. The key synthetic steps involve Knoevenagel condensation with p-methoxybenzaldehyde, in situ decarboxylation and intramolecular ring cyclization to construct the tetralone skeleton. Stereospecific reduction of the O-alkylated ketone 13 afforded good yield of(More)
A simple synthesis and biologic evaluation of trans-3,4,5-trimethoxycinnamamides 10a–e and 11 as novel antinarcotic agents is described. The synthetic key strategies involve condensation reaction and coupling reaction to generate trans-3,4,5-trimethoxycinnamamides 10a–e and 11. They were evaluated for free radical scavenging, inhibitory action for(More)
The practical synthesis and anticancer activity of novel deoxoartemisinin-glycolipid hybrids, which incorporate two drugs into a single molecule and can impact multiple targets simultaneously are presented. These hybrids exhibited potent in vitro anticancer activity against several human cancer cell lines. The deoxoartemisinin-glycolipid hybrids generally(More)
The first total synthesis for large-scale production and anticancer activity of novel aminophenylpyridinium-5-(hydroxybenzoyl)hydrazonomethyl-2-oxothiazol-3-ide (PBHT) (1) and its derivatives are reported. The chemical structure of PBHT was unambiguously determined by utilization of the two-dimensional nuclear Overhauser effect (NOE) technique. The(More)
A series of 3,4,5-trimethoxycinnamic acid derivatives was prepared and evaluated for antinarcotic effects on morphine dependence in mice and binding affinities on serotonergic receptors. The key synthetic strategies involve generation of ketones 6-7, esters 9-12 through condensation reaction, and amides 13-19 via coupling reaction using(More)
