Out of 400 virtually designed imidazoline N-oxides, five cyclic nitrones were selected on the basis of PASS prediction as potent nootropics and were evaluated for their biological activities in albino mice. The selected N-alkyl and aryl-substituted nitrones were found to be excellent nootropics. A series of lead compounds acting as cognition enhancers have(More)
The manuscript describes the synthesis of novel 1,2,3-triazole tethered β-lactam-chalcone bifunctional hybrids via click chemistry approach utilizing azide-alkyne cycloaddition reactions and their evaluation as anticancer agents against four human cancer cell lines. The presence of a cyclohexyl substituent at N-1 of β-lactam ring and methoxy substituents,(More)
PURPOSE The present study evaluates some azetidin-2-ones derivatives for their central nervous system (CNS) modulating activities. The compounds were chosen from a series (5a-o) which were previously synthesized and evaluated for hypolipidemic and antihyperglycemic activity based on the predictions made by the computer software "Prediction of Activity(More)
Several 1-aryl-2-phenyl-4-piperidino-4-thioalkyl-1,3-diazabuta-1,3-dienes were prepared by the treatment of N-arylimino isothiocyanate with piperidine followed by S-alkylation with alkyl iodides in the presence of dry acetone and potassium hydroxide. The constitution of the products was supported by IR, PMR and mass spectral study. The compounds synthesized(More)
3-Azido-, 3-amino- and 3-(1,2,3-triazol-1-yl)-β-lactams were synthesized and evaluated for their antiplasmodial activity against four strains of Plasmodium falciparum and KB cells for their cytotoxicity profiles. The presence of a cyclohexyl substituent at N-1 and a phenyl group on the triazole ring markedly improved the activity profiles of(More)
The electrode characteristics and selectivities of PVC-based mercury(II) selective coated graphite electrode (CGE) and polymeric membrane electrode (PME) incorporating the recently synthesized 1-furan-2-yl-4-(4-nitrophenyl)-2-phenyl-5H-imidazole-3-oxide are reported here. The electrodes exhibit Nernstian slope for mercury(II) ions over wide concentration(More)
The manuscript pertains to the synthesis and in vitro cytotoxic evaluation of a series of N-alkylbromo and N-alkylphthalimido-isatins against four different human cancer cell lines namely Colon: HCT-15; Liver: Hep-2; Lung: A-549 and Leukemia: THP-1 at 10 and 100 μM concentrations. The active compounds based on preliminary studies were evaluated for their(More)
PURPOSE The present study was undertaken to examine the effect of monocyclic beta-lactams (compounds 5a-5o) for anti-hyperglycemic activity against alloxan-induced diabetes in rats. As these compounds have been shown to control disturbances in cholesterol metabolism induced by diabetes. METHODS The test compounds were synthesized via [2+2] cycloaddition(More)
