A series of 5-arylisoxazole derivatives were synthesized via the reaction of 3-(dimethyl-amino)-1-arylprop-2-en-1-ones with hydroxylamine hydrochloride in aqueous media without using any catalyst. This method has the advantages of easier work-up, mild reaction conditions, high yields, and an environmentally benign procedure.
An efficient and convenient method for the preparation of cis-bispyrimidodiazepinone derivatives has been described. A variety of substrates can participate in the process with good yields, making this methodology suitable for library synthesis in drug discovery efforts. The mechanistic course of the reaction suggests the involvement of reduction, coupling… (More)
