Vinod K. Jain* and Hiren C. Mandalia

*Department of Chemisitry, School of Sciences, Gujarat University, Navrangpura, Ahmedabad 380009, Gujarat, India


The calixpyrroles (meso-octasubstituted porphyrinogens), which are easy to make and functionalize, are a class of old but new hetero-calixarene analogue. This comprehensive review summarizes the progress made in chemistry of calixpyrroles in terms of their synthesis, structure, conformation, functionalization and applications in various fields.

*Institute of Pharmaceutical Chemistry, University of Szeged, P.O.Box 427 H-6701 Szeged, Hungary


Di-exo- and di-endo-2-aminonorbornane/enemethanamines 1-3, di-exo-oxanorbornene derivative 4 and cis-cyclohexane and trans-4-cyclohexene analogues 5, 6 were reacted with p-chlorobenzaldehyde in the presence of N-bromosuccinimide in dichloromethane. Via the reactions of 1-6, condensed diaziridines 7-12 accompanied by pyrimidine derivatives 13-16 were prepared after isolation with column chromatography. The mechanisms proposed for alternative transformations were supported by DFT calculations. The structures of the new compounds were proved by IR and NMR spectroscopy and, for 7, 9 and 12, also by means of X-ray crystallography.

(E)-Ethyl 3-(4-oxo-4H-chromen-3-yl)acrylate (3), (E)-3-(4-oxo-4H-chromen-3-yl)-2-propenenitrile (12) and their 5-hydroxy-derivatives 11 and 13 undergo alternative, solvent dependent, domino reactions with ethyl vinyl ether. Inverse electron demand Diels-Alder (IEDDA)-elimination-IEDDA generates isomeric tetracycles 15a-d and 16a-d. Instead, IEDDA-elimination-intramolecular elimination reactions provides xanthone 17 or 2-hydroxybenzophenones 18a-d, respectively. In non-polar solvents propenenitriles 12 and 13 experience a third alternative domino sequence: IEDDA-elimination-ene reaction, yielding the highly functionalized tricyclic compounds 21 and 22.

*Department of Organic Chemistry, The Medical University of Silesia, Jagielloñska 4, 41-200 Sosnowiec, Poland


An efficient synthesis of novel type of dipyrido-1,4-thiazine (4) was elaborated in the reactions of two pairs of 3,4-disubstituted pyridines in DMF. The reactions proceeded through the S→N type of the Smiles rearrangement of the resulting 4,4’-dipyridinyl sulfide. In the case of formation of 10-(3’-nitro-4’-pyridinyl)-2,7-diazaphenothiazine (5) double rearrangement was observed. 10H-2,7-diazaphenothiazine (4) was N-alkylated, N-arylated and N-heteroarylated to give 10-substituted (alkyl, arylalkyl, aryl, heteroaryl and dialkylaminoalkyl) derivatives (5) and (17-29). The NMR spectra were assigned with the help of the 1H-1H correlation (COSY) and NOE experiment of the methyl derivative (17). The crucial 10H-2,7-diazaphenothiazine (4) showed promising anticancer activity.

1-Substituted 4-Hydroxy-3-quinolinesulfonic Acids Preparation and Structures

*Department of Organic Chemistry, The Medical University of Silesia, Jagiellonska 4, 41-200 Sosnowiec, Poland


1-Methyl and 1-ethyl-1,4-dihydro-4-oxo-3-quinolinesulfonic acids were synthesized from 4-chloro-3-quinolinesulfonyl chloride. It was shown that the acids and their 1-H substituted analogues form a betain having a hydroxy substituent located in position 4 and a sulfonate anion group in position 3. However, the sodium salts of the acids take a form of a quinolone tautomer.

Intramolecular Nitrilimine Cycloadditions to the Thiophene and the Furan Rings

Giorgio Molteni,* Sara Mondini, and Alessandro Ponti

*Dipartimento di Chimica Organica e Industriale, Università degli Studi di Milano, Via Golgi 19, 20133 Milano, Italy


The dipolarophilic behaviour of furan and thiophene rings have been exploited in the intramolecular cycloadditions of nitrilimines. These labile intermediates were generated from the corresponding hydrazonoyl chlorides by treatment with silver carbonate. The extent of formation of tricyclic cycloadducts was strongly dependent on the substitution pattern of the heteroaromatic ring, thus reflecting the HOMO-dipole controlled nature of the cycloaddition.

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


1,2,3-triHeterocycle-substituted aziridines were prepared by coupling of (α-chloroalkyl) oxazolinyllithium compounds with diheteroaryl imines. The trapping by different electrophiles of the corresponding aziridinyl anions, generated by treatment with strong bases, was investigated. The stereoselectivity of the synthesis and the functionalization reactions was studied highlighting the different stabilizing effects of the heterocycle substituents.

Thymine polyoxin C (2), a common partial structure of polyoxin H (3) and J (4) having anti-fungal activity, was formally synthesized from D-ribose in good overall yield by using L-threonine aldolase-catalyzed reaction as a key step, which affords novel β-hydroxy-α-L-amino acids from glycine and aldehydes in an aqueous medium.
