New derivatives of N2-ethoxymethylene phenylglycine hydrazide protected at the amino group by acetyl and tert-butoxycarbonyl were synthesized with reactions of N-protected phenylglycine hydrazides and triethyl orthoesters. They underwent cyclization to the corresponding N-protected 2-aminomethyl-1,3,4-oxadiazoles in the presence of glacial acetic acid.

Taro Amagata,* Keiko Takigawa, Katsuhiko Minoura, and Atsushi Numata*

*Department of Chemistry and Biochemistry, San Francisco State University, 1600 Holloway Ave., San Francisco, CA 94132, U.S.A.


The Halichondria sponge-derived fungus, Gymnascella dankaliensis, was cultured in a malt extract medium containing the bromine source. Three new metabolites, gymnastatins I (5)–K (7), have been isolated from the mycelial MeOH extract. The spectroscopic analyses using 1D and 2D NMR techniques have established the stereostructures of 57 in which chlorine atoms in gymnastatins A (1)–C (3) are respectively replaced by bromine atoms. All of the isolated metabolites (57) exhibited growth inhibition against the P388 cancer cell line. Furthermore, gymnastatins I (5) and J (6) showed appreciable growth inhibition against the human cancer cell lines.

*Department of Organic Chemistry, Medical University of Gdańsk, Al. Gen. Hallera 107, 80-416 Gdańsk, Poland


The novel 1,2,4-triazole derivatives have been synthesized by a few different pathways. Heterocyclic carbohydrazides were used to obtain monoesters of hydrazine acids (1-6), thiosemicarbazide derivatives (7-17), and finaly 1,2,4-triazole-5-thiones (18-38). Carbohydrazides were also cyclized with methyl carbamodithioates in the presence of DBU giving 1,2,4-triazole-5-thiones (18, 19, 39-47). Two of final products (39, 40) were undergone alkylation in alkaline solution to appropriate sulfides (48-53). Then methylsulfides (48, 49) were oxidized with peroxyacetic acid to sulfoxides (54, 55). The obtained compounds were tested in vitro towards Mycobacterium tuberculosis.

A highly effective one-pot synthesis of poly-substituted quinolines from 2-alkynylnitrobenzenes using inexpensive reagents has been developed. Reaction of 2-alkynylnitrobenzenes with Sn/HCl in EtOH resulted in the formation of 2-aminophenyl ketones and subsequently condensed in situ with ketones to form tri-substituted quinolines in 80-97% yields.

Novel 1-(2-diisopropylaminoethyl)-3-alkylbenzimidazolium salts as N-heterocyclic carbene precursors 2a-g were prepared by quarternazition of 1-(2-diisopropylaminoethyl)benzimidazoles in DMF with alkyl halides. The salts were characterized spectroscopically and in situ formed complexes from Pd(OAc)2 and 2 have been tested as catalyst in homogenous Heck and Suzuki reactions.

A Short and Convenient Synthesis of Novel Thienopyrazolodiazepine and Thienopyrazoloxazepine Skeletons via Nitrilimine Cycloaddition

Giorgio Molteni* and Paola Del Buttero

*Department of Organic and Industrial Chemistry, University of Milano, Via Golgi 19, 20133 Milano, Italy


Silver carbonate treatment of 3-thenyl-substituted hydrazonoyl chloride (3) promoted the in situ generation of the corresponding nitrilimine (4) which constitute the key intermediate in the three step synthesis of both thieno[2,3-f]pyrazolo[1,5-a][1,4]diazepine and thieno[2,3-f]pyrazolo[1,5-a][1,4]oxazepine skeletons. The concurrent formation of unusual pyridazine derivatives arising from the electrophilic attack of a nitrilium cation to the carbon-carbon double bond is also discussed in some detail.

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


A simple and efficient DDQ-mediated oxidative cross-coupling between 4-hydroxycoumarin and 1,3-diarylallylic compounds was developed. The reaction furnished functionalized pyranocoumarins in a single step without using any metal catalyst. The tandem process involves an intermolecular C–C bond formation and an intramolecular C–O bond formation through double oxidative C–H activation.

*Department of Chemistry, East China Normal University, 3663 Zhongshan RD(N9, Shanghai 200062, China


The diindenocarbazole derivatives are synthesized by the reaction of 2,7-dibromo-9-hexylcarbazole with benzoyl chloride under Friedel-Crafts conditions, followed by Wolff-Kishner-Huang reduction to produce 3,6-dibenzyl-2,7-dibromo-9-hexylcarbazole, which was cyclized to form bis(indeno)-9-hexylcarbazole by palladium-catalyzed double intramolecular arylation. The diindeno-carbazole was further converted into fully alkylated compounds.

An investigation was undertaken to gain understanding of substituent and solvent effects on the photoreactivity of the title 1-naphthylalanine N’,N’-disubstituted amides [(Z)-1] and the (Z)-1-derived product composition. Results indicated that the photoinduced electron transfer reaction of (Z)-1 in methanol containing triethylamine (TEA) proceeds less efficiently than that of the corresponding 1-naphthylalanine alkyl esters to afford cis-4,5-dihydrooxazoles in preference to the trans-isomers and also the former isomers undergo negligible isomerization to the latter isomers in the presence of TEA. Analysis of solvent effects substantiated that both the polarity of solvent and the ability of solvent to donate proton or to accept electron are major factors for controlling the photoreactivity and product composition ratio.
