The paper discusses the synthesis and stereochemical aspects of the anti aldol products, 3-(substituted phenyl)-5-[(substituted phenyl) hydroxy methyl]-5-methyl-4-oxo-2-thioxoimidazolidines. The stereochemistry observed in the aldol reactions with benzaldehydes was explained by transition state model of the endocyclic (E)-enolate formed from the rigid(More)
A highly concise stereoselective synthesis of a newly identified alkaloid with a pyrroloindoloquinazoline skeleton has been achieved. To this end, a chiral auxiliary mediated asymmetric acetate aldol reaction on tryptanthrin was explored and the resulting adduct was converted to the product by a novel one-pot reductive cyclization/transamidation using(More)
Sulfide and sulfonyl derivatives of 1,2,4-oxadiazoles were synthesized and screened by MTT assay on the prostate cancer cells, DU-145. Six compounds were identified as potential anti-prostate cancer agents with IC(50) values ranging from 0.5 to 5.1μM. These compounds exhibited good activity on the androgen independent cells PC-3, while the results were(More)
Synergistic effects of the exo- and endocyclic chiral centers of an imidazolidinone-based auxiliary were investigated in the perspective of acetate aldol reactions. The reversal in diastereoselectivity was accomplished by lithium and titanium enolate reactions, which proceed through proposed open and closed transitions states, respectively. The aldol(More)
An efficient, eco-friendly, base free, one-pot, sequential protocol was developed for epoxide azidolysis and copper-catalyzed azide-alkyne cycloaddition using water as the solvent for the synthesis of 3-hydroxy-1-alkyl-3-[(4-aryl/alkyl-1H-1,2,3-triazol-1-yl)methyl]indolin-2-ones. The optimized reaction conditions have been generalized in the case of(More)
(S)-4-Isopropyl-1-phenyltetrahydropyrimidin-2(1H)-one was synthesized and evaluated as a chiral auxiliary for asymmetric acetate and propionate aldol reactions, by generation of titanium and lithium enolates, affording excellent yields and stereoselectivities for syn and anti aldol diastereomers, respectively. High stereoselectivities were also obtained in(More)
Diastereoselective syntheses of 3-aryl-(S/R)-6-methyl-1-[(S/R)-1-phenylethyl)]-2-thioxotetrahydro pyrimidin-4(1H)-ones were achieved in good yields by the condensation of aryl isothiocyanates with ethyl 3-(1-phenylethylamino)butanoate in a one-pot reaction. Benzylation of these substrates illustrated that the orientations of the exocylic and endocylic(More)
