A number of macrocyclic polyether compounds containing a 2,5-bis(2-hydroxyphenyl)-1,3,4-thiadiazole moiety are quickly prepared by a nucleophilic substitution reaction involving ethylene or polyethyleglycol ditosylate and a biphenol, the 2,5-bis(2-hydroxyphenyl)-1,3,4-thiadiazole, with solid anhydrous carbonate as a base under microwave irradiation. The quantum calculations at DFT level and the structure of different conformations of the 2,5-bis(2-hydroxyphenyl)-1,3,4-thiadiazole were performed both in vacuum and acetonitrile solvent using PCM method. The structures are ascertained by spectroscopic properties. The crystal structure of one of the crown compounds has been determined and shows the sufur atom to be inside the macroring cavity.

Lactonization of 4-pentenoic acid to 5-(azinylthio)methyloxolan-2-ones (8) was performed by addition of electrochemically generated azinylsulfenyl cations starting from the respective 3,3’-bis(pyridinyl or quinolinyl) disulfides (2) or (5) and 4,4’-bis(7-chloroquinolinyl or 3-methylthioquinolinyl) disulfides (6b), (6c) and using a bromide ion as a redox catalyst. Sulfenyl cations generated in the same manner from 2,2’-bispyridinyl and 2,2’-bisquinolinyl disulfides (1) or (4) reacted with 4-pentenoic acid to form thiazolo[3,2-a]pyridinio- or quinoliniopropanoate (9a) or (9b). In the case of 8,8’-bisquinolinyl disulfide (7), oxolan-2-one (8e) was accompanied by 2,3-dihydro-1,4-thiazinequinolinio derivative (10). 4,4’-Bis(pyridinyl nor quinolinyl) disulfides (3) and (6a) did not give such products.

*Department of Sciences and Biological and Environmental Technologies, University of Lecce, Via Prov.le Lecce-Monteroni, 73100 Lecce, Italy


Alkenyl-β-lactams, obtained by palladium-catalyzed [2+2] cycloaddition of imines with allyl halides, were functionalized in a stereoselective way by a simple deprotonation with LDA, and subsequent capture of the formed carbanion by various electrophiles. Alkyl, hydroxy and epoxy functionalities were inserted exclusively at the C-3 carbon atom of the β-lactamic system, without performing new cyclizations. High stereoselectivity was noticed with the quenching taking place preferentially at the Cα with respect to the Cγ carbon atom of the allylic moiety of the azetidinyl anion generated by deprotonation.

*School of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Shanxi University, Taiyuan 030006, China


Reaction of tetrahydrofolate coenzyme model, 1-(3-nitrobenzenesulfonyl)-3,4-dimethylimidazolinium iodide (2) with a series of aromatic amines produced N,N,N’-trisubstituted-2-methylethylenediamine derivatives (3-7). Reaction of the model with indole or carbazole in the presence of NaH provides two imidazolidine derivatives. The action of one-carbon transfer of the model with several bifunctional nucleophiles is also tested.

Similar CD spectra are obtained on (2S)-1,4-diacetyl-1,2,3,4-tetrahydro-2-isopropylquinoxaline and (2S)-1,4-diacetyl-1,2,3,4-tetrahydro-2-isobutylquinoxaline but not on (2S)-1,4-diacetyl-1,2,3,4-tetrahydro-2-methylquinoxaline nor on the 2-ethyl derivative. The similarity of their CD spectra is represented the same stereogenic structure based on the boat conformation confirmed by X-Ray crystallographic analyses.

The reaction of 4’,5’-unsaturated nucleoside (5) with m-CPBA provided different products depending on the solvent. 4’,5’-Epoxynucleoside (6) was generated as a key intermediate although 6 was not stable enough to isolate and further reaction progressed. When the reaction was performed in CH2Cl2, 2,4’-cyclonucleoside (7) and 4’-ketonucleoside (8) were obtained. On the other hand, 4’-alkoxy derivatives (9 and 11) together with their epimers (10 and 12) were aquired as a mixture by the nucleophilic attack of alcohol.

*Department of Chemistry, Zhejiang University , Hangzhou, 310027, China


Regiospecific nitration of single p-substituted tetraphenylporphyrins with excess nitric acid is reported. The directive effects of different p-substituents, including nitro, acetamido and hydroxy groups, were demonstrated. The electron- withdrawing p-nitro group was found to lead to predominant nitration at the neighboring phenyl ring, and the electron-releasing p-acetamido and p-hydroxy groups lead to adjacent nitration at the same phenyl ring.

*Centre for Clean Chemistry, Department of Chemistry, University of Wales Swansea, Singleton Park, Swansea SA2 8PP, U.K.


Reactions of various aminoquinazolin-4(3H)-ones with monosaccharides in the presence of a catalytic amount of glacial acetic acid afforded the corresponding N-glycosylamines as a mixture of α- and β-anomers. Acetylation of this mixture gave the corresponding β-glycoside acetates. However, β-glycoside acetates could be obtained directly from reactions of per-O-acetyl-α-D-glucosyl bromides with quinazolin-4(3H)-one derivatives which deacetyalted to the corresponding β-glycosides. A series of S-glycosides have been synthesised from reaction of per-O-acetyl-α-D-glucosyl bromides with quinazolinethiones.
