Molecular level parameters are investigated computationally to understand the factors that are responsible for the higher efficiency in derivatives of 9,10-bis(1-naphthyl)anthracene (alpha-ADN), 9,10-bis(2-naphthyl)anthracene (beta-ADN), their tetramethyl derivatives (alpha,beta-TMADN) and the t-Bu derivative (beta-TBADN) as blue light emitting(More)
Twenty-six 2-pyridone derivatives (8a-8z), which are structurally analogous to amrinone and milrinone two important cardiotonic drugs, are synthesized and characterized. The synthesis of 2-pyridone derivatives involves addition, followed by cyclization between Baylis-Hillman acetates (7a-7k) and enamino esters or nitriles (3a-3e). Thus synthesized pyridones(More)
Series of substituted-s-triazines (1-22) were synthesized and evaluated for their in vitro antibacterial activity against six representative Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacterial strains. Many compounds have displayed comparable antibacterial activity against Bacillus sphaericus and significantly active against other tested organisms with reference to(More)
Baylis-Hillman acetates were synthesized from substituted 2-chloronicotinaldehydes and were conveniently transformed into multisubstituted quinolines and cyclopenta[g]quinolines on reaction with nitroethane or ethyl cyanoacetate via a successive S(N)2'-S(N)Ar elimination strategy. Thus, synthesized quinolines were evaluated for antimicrobial activity and(More)
An efficient synthesis of antischistosomal drug praziquantel and analogues was achieved and the synthetic route designed was to afford structurally diverse analogues for better structure-activity relationship understanding. Total of nineteen PZQ analogues with structural variations at amide, piperazine and aromatic moieties have been synthesized and fully(More)
Some dialkylaminoethanols, precursors of chemical warfare agents such as V-agents and nitrogen mustards, were analyzed by electron impact (EI) and electrospray ionization (ESI) mass spectrometry. The fragmentation pathways in EI and ESI-MS/MS methods are rationalized. The collision-induced dissociation (CID) spectra of [M+H](+) ions of aminoethanols in ESI(More)
A novel series of substituted (E)-3-(Benzo [d]thiazol-2-ylamino)phenylprop-2-en-1-onewere synthesized starting from 2-aminobenzothiazole and 1-aryl-3,3-bis- (methylsulfanyl)-2-propen-1-onesin the presence of a catalytic amount of sodium hydride in THF. The synthesised compounds' structures were confirmed by IR, Mass spectrometry, (1)H NMR, (13)C NMR and(More)
A facile route for the synthesis of 20 new 1,4-disubstituted tetrazolone derivatives from allyl bromides of Baylis–Hillman adducts and various 1-substituted tetrazolones is described. All the synthesized compounds were screened for in vitro antibacterial and antifungal activity. Out of 20 newly synthesized compounds 16 compounds showed very good activity(More)
New Baylis-Hillman adducts are synthesized based on substituted 2-chloronicotinaldehydes and screened for their in vitro anti-malarial activity against chloroquine sensitive and chloroquine resistant Plasmodium falciparum. Out of the six new compounds synthesized and screened, 2b, 2c and 2d compounds showed substantial anti-malarial activity.
Natural resonance theory (NRT) and natural bond orbital (NBO) analysis have been carried out on a simple symmetrical and an unsymmetrical substituted squaraine with a view of understanding the structure of the latter type of squaraines. It is found that there are some fundamental differences in the structure and bonding between these two types of squaraines(More)
