Compounds 1-25 showed varying degree of antileishmanial activities with IC50 values ranging between 1.95 and 88.56 μM. Compounds 2, 10, and 11 (IC50=3.29±0.07 μM, 1.95±0.04 μM, and 2.49±0.03 μM, respectively) were found to be more active than standard pentamidine (IC50=5.09±0.04 μM). Compounds 7 (IC50=7.64±0.1 μM), 8 (IC50=13.17±0.46 μM), 18(More)
2,4-Dimethylbenzoylhydrazones 1-30 were synthesized by condensation reactions of 2,4-dimethylbenzoylhydrazide with various aromatic aldehydes and characterized. The assigned structures of compounds 10, 15 and 22 were further supported by single-crystal X-ray diffraction data. The synthesized compounds were evaluated for their in vitro DPPH radical(More)
Phenolic Schiff bases are known for their diverse biological activities and ability to scavenge free radicals. To elucidate (1) the structure-antioxidant activity relationship of a series of thirty synthetic derivatives of 2-methoxybezohydrazide phenolic Schiff bases and (2) to determine the major mechanism involved in free radical scavenging, we used(More)
A series of 4-methoxybenzoylhydrazones 1-30 was synthesized and the structures of the synthetic derivatives elucidated by spectroscopic methods. The compounds showed a varying degree of antiglycation activity, with IC50 values ranging between 216.52 and 748.71 µM, when compared to a rutin standard (IC50=294.46±1.50 µM). Compounds 1 (IC50=216.52±4.2 µM), 3(More)
Using structure-based virtual screening approach, a coumarin derivative (1) was identified as β-glucuronidase inhibitor. A focused library of coumarin derivatives was synthesized by eco-benign version of chemical reaction, and all synthetic compounds were characterized by using spectroscopy. These compounds were found to be inhibitor of β-glucuronidase with(More)
The title compound, C15H14N2O4 adopts an E conformation about the azomethine double bond. Intra-molecular N-H⋯O and O-H⋯N hydrogen bonds generate S(6) rings and help to establish the molecular conformation. The dihedral angle between the benzene rings is 17.84 (10)°. In the crystal, mol-ecules are linked by O-H⋯O and C-H⋯O hydrogen bonds into a(More)
Schiff bases of 3,4-dimethoxybenzenamine 1-25 were synthesized and evaluated for their antioxidant activity. All the synthesized compounds were characterized by various spectroscopic techniques. In addition, the characterizations of compounds 13, 15 and 16 were supported by crystal X-ray determinations and their geometrical parameters were compared with(More)
Phenoxyacetohydrazide Schiff base analogs 1-28 have been synthesized and their in vitro β-glucouoronidase inhibition potential studied.

This paper presents a novel agent-based design for Arabic speech recognition. We define the Arabic speech recognition as a Multi-Agent-System where each agent has a specific goal and deals with that goal only. Once all the small tasks are accomplished the big task is too. A number of agents are required in order to recast Arabic speech recognition, namely(More)
Phenyl thiazole hydrazone derivatives 1–21 have been synthesized and screened for their in vitro antiglycation activity. Hydrazones 1–21 displayed assorted antiglycation activities having IC50 values in the range of 187.61 ± 1.12–886.98 ± 5.29 µM as compared to standard rutin (IC50 = 269.07 ± 3.79 µM). Compounds 5 (IC50 = 187.61 ± 1.12 µM), 3 (IC50 = 191.92(More)
