Tuberculosis (TB) is still a challenging worldwide health problem and mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) remains one of the most deadly human pathogens. TB is the second leading infectious cause of mortality today behind only HIV/AIDS. The impetus for developing new structural classes of antituberculosis drugs comes from the emergence of multi-drug resistant(More)
Benzothiazole (BTA) and its derivatives are the most important heterocyclic compounds, which are common and integral feature of a variety of natural products and pharmaceutical agents. BTA shows a variety of pharmacological properties, and its analogs offer a high degree of structural diversity that has proven useful for the search of new therapeutic(More)
A new series of novel 5-(nitro/bromo)-styryl-2-benzimidazoles (1-12) has been synthesized by simple, mild and efficient synthetic protocol by attempted condensation of 5-(nitro/bromo)-o-phenylenediamine with trans-cinnamic acids in ethylene glycol. Screening for in vitro anti-tubercular activity against Mycobacterium tuberculosis H(37) Rv, anti-bacterial(More)
The properties of benzimidazole and its derivatives have been studied over more than one hundred years. Benzimidazole derivatives are useful intermediates/subunits for the development of molecules of pharmaceutical or biological interest. Substituted benzimidazole derivatives have found applications in diverse therapeutic areas such as antiulcer, anticancer(More)
In seeking broad spectrum pharmacological activities of benzimidazole derivatives, a group of 4-thiazolidinones 5(a-j) and 1,3,4-oxadiazoles 6(a-j) containing 2-mercapto benzimidazole moiety were synthesized and screened for in vivo anticonvulsant activity by Maximal Electroshock (MES) model and antidiabetic activity using Oral Glucose Tolerance Test(More)
Alzheimer's disease (AD) is a multifactorial disorder with several target proteins contributing to its etiology. In search for multifunctional anti-AD drug candidates, taking into account that the acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and beta-amyloid (Aβ) aggregation are particularly important targets for inhibition, the tacrine and benzothiazole (BTA) moieties were(More)
A novel series of 4-[4-(6-phenyl-pyrimidin-4-yl)-phenoxymethyl]-chromen-2-ones [5-7(a-e)] were synthesized from various 4-bromomethyl coumarins 1(a-e). The synthesized compounds were screened for in-vivo analgesic and anti-pyretic activities at a dose of 25 and 100 mg/kg body weight (b.w), respectively. Among them, compounds 5(d), 6(c) and 7(d) exhibited(More)
The chromone and its derivatives are the most important heterocyclic compounds, which is a common and integral feature of a variety of natural products and medicinal agents. These heterocycles show a variety of pharmacological properties, and change of their structure offers a high degree of diversity that has proven useful for the search of new therapeutic(More)
New and reemerging infectious diseases will continue to pose serious global health threats well into the 21st century and according to the World Health Organization report, these are still the leading cause of death among humans worldwide. Among infectious diseases, tuberculosis claims approximately 2 million deaths per year worldwide. Also, agents that(More)
The efficient and rapid synthesis of 5-nitro-2-aryl substituted-1H-benzimidazole libraries (1a-1j) has been established. Thus, both microwave and conventional cyclo-condensation of 4-nitro ortho-phenylenediamine with various phenoxyacetic acids were carried out in the presence of HCl catalyst. The microwave synthesis route afforded advantages, such as good(More)
