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 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)
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 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)
A new fluorescent-cholesterol (Cum-Chl) molecule has been synthesized by attaching 3-acetyl-7-(diethylamino)-2H-chromen-2-one (Cum) to cholesterol via cholesterol bound β-keto ester. The β-keto ester was synthesized from the corresponding nitrile by applying the Blaise reaction. The molecule forms H-aggregates in solutions. The efficiency of aggregation is(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)
Domino Michael-Aldol reactions on 1,4-diaryl-2-butene-1,4-diones with methyl acetoacetate in the presence of activated Ba(OH)(2) furnished methyl (1R*,2S*,4S*)-2-aroyl-4-hydroxy-6-oxo-4-arylcyclohexane-1-carboxylate derivatives in a stereo- and regiospecific manner. While treatment of these cyclohexanecarboxylate products with TsOH resulted in the(More)
A new series of C4-N,N-dialkylaniline-substituted 4-aryl-4H-chromenes were synthesized, and their anti-proliferative properties were evaluated against human cancer cell lines, namely, laryngeal carcinoma (Hep2), lung adenocarcinoma (A549), and cervical cancer (HeLa). The best among them, the 4-aryl-4H-chromene with C4-1-phenylpiperidine substitution was(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)
We have synthesized and characterized a variety of fat-soluble, low-melting and medicinally useful 4-aryl-4H-chromenes from H-cardanol (side-chain perhydrogenated cardanol, 3-pentadecylphenol), a renewable and low-cost product from locally grown cashew nut trees (Anacardium occidentale L.). We incorporated H-cardanol into the aromatic rings of either(More)
