The potential therapeutic benefit of compounds able to activate AMPA receptors (AMPAr) has led to the search for new AMPAr positive modulators. On the basis of crystallographic data of the benzothiadiazines binding mode in the S1S2 GluA2 dimer interface, a set of 5-aryl-2,3-dihydrobenzothiadiazine type compounds has been synthesized and tested.(More)
A high-yield one-pot two-step synthesis of 2-aminoimidazoles (2-AI), exploiting an under-air heterocyclodehydration process between α-chloroketones and guanidine derivatives, and using deep eutectic solvents (DESs) as nonconventional, "green" and "innocent" reaction media, has been accomplished successfully. The combination of either glycerol or urea with(More)
Alpha-halo-alpha-heteroarylalkyllithiums, generated by deprotonation of the corresponding halides, when added promptly to steroids with C=O or C=NR groups, lead to epoxides and aziridines. The reactions are regio- and stereoselective; in fact, in the presence of more than one C=O group, the oxido or aziridino functions are formed uniquely at the C=O of C-17(More)
5-Arylbenzothiadiazine type compounds acting as positive allosteric modulators of α-amino-3-hydroxy-5-methyl-4-isoxazolepropionic acid receptor (AMPA-PAMs) have received particular attention in the past decade for their nootropic activity and lack of the excitotoxic side effects of direct agonists. Recently, our research group has published the synthesis(More)
New perylene monoimides, diimides and bis-diimides have been designed and synthetized. A detailed investigation of the synthesis of these compounds has also been performed in order to highlight the crucial factors for obtaining a specific class of molecules. Specifically, the attention has been focused on the synthesis of the intermediate perylene(More)
