The in vitro activity of root-tuber-peel extract of Flemingia vestita, an indigenous plant consumed by the natives in Northeast India, was tested against helminth parasites. Live parasites (nematode: Ascaris suum from pigs, A. lumbricoides from humans, Ascaridia galli and Heterakis gallinarum from domestic fowl; cestode: Raillietina echinobothrida from(More)
A facile, convenient, efficient, and high yielding synthesis of a combinatorial library of 3-aroylcoumarins has been developed by the condensation of easily available alpha-aroylketene dithioacetals (AKDTAs) and 2-hydroxybenzaldehydes (salicylaldehydes)/2-hydroxy-1-naphthaldehyde in the presence of catalytic amount of piperidine in THF reflux. The(More)
A new series of chloroquinoline-4H-chromene conjugates incorporating piperizine or azipane tethers were synthesized and their anti-malarial activity were evaluated against two Plasmodium falciparum strains namely 3D7 chloroquine sensitive (CQS) and K1 chloroquine resistant (CQR). Chloroquine was used as the standard and also reference for comparison. The(More)
PURPOSE Previously we showed that BDMC, an analogue of curcumin suppresses growth of human breast and laryngeal cancer cell line by causing apoptosis. Here, we demonstrate the enhanced anti-cancer activity of a heterocyclic ring (indole) incorporated curcumin analogue ((1E, 6E)-1, 7-di (1H-indol-3-yl) hepta-1, 6-diene-3, 5-Dione), ICA in short, in(More)
A series of N-methyl-3-nitro-4-(nitromethyl)-4H-chromen-2-amine derivatives 8 were synthesized from 2-((E)-2-nitrovinyl)phenol 7 and ((E)-N-methyl)-1-(methylthio)-2-nitroethenamine 5. The cytotoxic activity of these molecules was tested against two cancer cell lines namely HeLa (cervical cancer) and HEp-2 (epidermoid laryngeal carcinoma). Among them, two(More)
We have described the simple, convenient and high yielding one-pot synthesis of a library of highly functionalized hexa-substituted 1,4-dihydropyridines (1,4-DHPs) by 2-aminopyridine catalysed pseudo three-component reaction of nitroketene-N,S-acetals and aldehydes. This domino transformation involves formation of dihydropyridine ring by creation of two C-C(More)
Secretory N-acyl homoserine lactones (AHLs) mediate quorum sensing (QS) in bacteria. AHLs are shown to be inhibitory for an unrelated group of bacteria and might mimic host signalling elements, thereby subverting the regulatory events in host cells. This study investigated the AHL produced by Acinetobacter baumannii and analysed its effect on other(More)
In the title compound, C(11)H(9)Cl(2)N(3)O(5), the dihydro-pyran ring adopts a near-half-chair conformation. The benzene ring makes a torsion angle of 5.02 (5)° with the dihydro-pyran ring. Adjacent mol-ecules are inter-linked through inter-molecular C-H⋯O, N-H⋯O and C-Cl⋯π [3.4743 (9) Å] inter-actions. The inter-molecular N-H⋯O hydrogen bond generates an(More)
A facile and modular synthesis of triarylmethanes was achieved in good yield via a two-step sequence in which the final step is the copper(II)-catalyzed arylation of diarylmethanols with arylboronic acids. By using this protocol a variety of symmetrical and unsymmetrical triarylmethanes were synthesized. As an application of the newly developed methodology,(More)
In the title compound, C(13)H(9)NO(6), the coumarin system has the benzene ring aligned at 0.61 (18)° with respect to the pyrone ring. An intra-molecular O-H⋯O hydrogen bond stabilizes the mol-ecular conformation and a C-H⋯O contact also occurs. In the crystal, weak C-H⋯O inter-actions link the mol-ecules, forming inversion dimers.
