New chemical approaches were adopted for the synthesis of biologically important coumarins utilizing cyclohexane-1,3-dione derivatives as novel scaffold which were prepared from acetone and ethyl acrylate following our previous report. The stepwise strategies of aromatization, dehydrogenation, and demethylative cyclization were followed for coumarins(More)
A new series of benzocycloheptene amino vinyl bromide derivatives (9a–9m) were synthesized from isomeric mixture of himachalenes through two-step synthesis. The unusual structure of benzocycloheptene amino vinyl bromide derivative (9a) was confirmed by NMR and X-ray crystallography analyses. The newly synthesized amino vinyl bromide derivatives of(More)
BACKGROUND Accidental autoclaving of L-glutamine was found to facilitate the Agrobacterium infection of a non host plant like tea in an earlier study. In the present communication, we elucidate the structural changes in L-glutamine due to autoclaving and also confirm the role of heat transformed L-glutamine in Agrobacterium mediated genetic transformation(More)
Ethyl 3-(2,4-dioxocyclohexyl)propanoate has been explored as a precursor for the synthesis of N-substituted 4,4a,5,6-tetrahydroquinoline-2,7(1H,3H)-diones following conventional protecvtion, selective amidation, and deprotective-cyclization approaches. Moreover, a facile process for the selective dehydrogenative aromatization of these diones was developed(More)
Five new 2,9,9-trimethyl-6,7,8,9-tetrahydro-benzocyclohepten-5-ylidene-amine derivatives (16a-16e) were synthesized from α-dehydro-ar-himachalene (11) that was originally prepared from an isomeric mixture of α, β and γ himachalenes (10), the abundant sesquiterpenes of Cedrus deodara essential oil. In addition, different aryl himachalenes derivatives (9, 12,(More)
