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)
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)
1,2,3-Triazole tethered β-lactam and 7-chloroquinoline bifunctional hybrids were synthesized and evaluated as potential antimalarial agents. Activity against cultured Plasmodium falciparum was dependent on the N-substituent of the β-lactam ring as well as the presence of bis-triazole at the C-3 position. The observed activity profiles were further(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)
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)
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)
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)
