Efficient syntheses of a series of novel bisquinolines have been accomplished from 8-hydroxy quinolines under phase transfer catalyzed conditions using tetrabutylamoniumbromide as phase transfer catalyst. In vitro antibacterial and antifungal study of the synthesized analogues revealed six of them to show significant antibacterial and four to show(More)
Anticancer role of andrographolide is well documented. To find novel potent derivatives with improved cytotoxicity than andrographolide on cancer cells, two series of di-spiropyrrolidino- and di-spiropyrrolizidino oxindole andrographolide derivatives prepared by cyclo-addition of azomethine ylide along with sarcosine or proline (viz. sarcosine and proline(More)
Syntheses of 3,3-diheteroaromatic oxindole derivatives has been achieved by coupling indole-2,3-dione (isatin) with differently substituted indoles and pyrrole in presence of I(2) in i-PrOH. The in vitro spermicidal potentials and the mode of spermicidal action of the synthesized analogues were evaluated and the derivative, 3,3-bis (5-methoxy-1H-indol-3-yl)(More)
Five seven- or eight-coordinate manganese complexes of hydrazone ligands have been prepared. Three seven-coordinate neutral Mn(II) complexes: [Mn(dapA2)]n (1), [Mn(dapB2)(H2O)2] (2), [Mn(dapS2)(H2O)2] (3) have been synthesized from the bis-Schiff bases of 2,6-diacetylpyridine: dap(AH)2, dap(BH)2 and dap(SH)2 (AH = anthraniloyl hydrazide, BH = benzoyl(More)
A number of indolizines and pyrrolo[1,2-a]quinolines/isoquinolines were prepared from phenacyl pyridinium, quinolinium and isoquinolinium salts derived from the reaction of the heterocycles with 2-bromo acetophenone with alkynes and alkenes using amberlite-IRA-402 (OH) ion exchange resin as the base. Antibacterial and antifungal studies were carried out(More)
In the family of heterocyclic compounds, nitrogen and sulphur containing heterocyles are an important class of compounds in medicinal chemistry 1 . Thus, fused heterocyclic derivatives with thiazole moiety are prospective objects in modern drug discovery. The thiazolo[5,4-d]pyrimidine system is an isostere of purine wherein 9-N of purine is replaced by(More)
Developing a hydrogen-based economy is one possible scenario to reach a sustainable energy development and also to put ourselves on a path to cut the carbon emissions for obvious climate issues. However, several inherent problems must be overcome, such as production, storage, transport, and efficiency. We are involved in research towards developing metal(More)
For two indole and oxindole bioactive molecules, low-order room-temperature X-ray data were used to generate aspherical electron density (ED) distributions by application of the invariom formalism. An analysis of the ED using the quantum theory of atoms in molecules (QTAIM) was carried out, which allowed for quantitatively examining bond orders and charge(More)
A binuclear complex of Zn(ii) with formula [Zn(dap(A)(2))](2).2.25DMF (.2.25DMF) and a Mn(ii) coordination polymer with formula [Mn(3)(dap(In)(2))(3)(H(2)O)(2).2DMSO](n) (.2DMSO)(n) have been prepared and structurally characterized [dap(A)(2) = dideprotonated form of 2,6-diacetylpyridine bis(anthraniloyl hydrazone); dap(In)(2) = doubly deprotonated form of(More)
In the present work, two new copper complexes 3a and 3b with a Cu4O4 cubane core are reported. Both complexes are obtained by means of the in situ conversion of the imine functionality of Schiff's base ligands 1a [(E)-4-chloro-2-((thiazol-2-ylimino)methyl)phenol] and 1b [(E)-4-bromo-2-((thiazol-2-ylimino)methyl)phenol] into amino alcohols 2a(More)
