Various N-(5-chloro-6-substituted-benzothiazol-2-yl)-N'-(substituted phenyl)-[1,3,4]thiadiazole-2,5-diamines (5a-t) were designed and synthesized starting from substituted acetophenones. Structures of all the compounds were confirmed on the basis of spectral and elemental analyses. All the newly synthesized compounds were screened for their anticonvulsant(More)
The anticonvulsant study of 25 newly synthesized quinazolin-4(3H)-one substituted 1H and 2H-tetrazoles (6a–6d, 7a–7b, 8a–8i, 8a′–8i′) was executed. The study employing the maximal electroshock and subcutaneous pentylenetetrazole (scPTZ) screens, the ‘gold standards’ in the preliminary anticonvulsant breakthrough and the neurotoxicity study applying the(More)
Malaria is the leading infectious disease found in humans, affecting third-world countries. Worldwide, more than two billion people are at risk of malaria, with about 500 million clinical cases of malaria each year and one million deaths. In this focused review, an effort has been made to summarize the reactions of singlet oxygen with organic substrates,(More)
A series of 6-substituted-1,2,4-triazolo-[3,4-b]-1,3,4-thiadiazole (6a–g) and 1,3,4-oxadiazole (7a–g, 8) derivatives of benzothiazole were synthesized in satisfactory yield and pharmacologically evaluated for their anti-inflammatory, analgesic, ulcerogenic, and lipid peroxidation activities by known experimental models. All the synthesized compounds were in(More)
A series of 5,6-dimethoxy-2-{1-[arylamino/alkylamino(thioxo)methyl]-4-piperidyl-methyl}-1-indanones (4a–l) were designed and synthesized by the reaction of 5,6-dimethoxy-2-(piperidin-4-yl-methyl)-indan-1-one with aryl/alkyl isothiocyanates. The anticonvulsant activity was evaluated in animal models by maximal electroshock seizure and subcutaneous(More)
The pyrazole derivatives were synthesized and pharmacologically evaluated for analgesic (tail flick) and anti-inflammatory (based on carrageenan-induced paw edema) activities. Compound 4k showed high potency as an anti-inflammatory agent after 3 and 4-h time intervals (P < 0.001) equipotent to indomethacin. They were devoid of ulcerogenic potential when(More)
A series of substituted (benzamidostyryl) benzimidazole (3a–r) were synthesized and evaluated for their possible anti-inflammatory and ulcerogenicity. The structures of the synthesized compounds were confirmed on the basis of their spectral data and elemental analysis. Majority of the compounds were active in carrageenan-induced hind paw edema method test(More)
