*Department of Chemistry, Alzahra University, Vanak Square, Tehran, P.O. Box number 19938939973, Iran


4-Hydroxycoumarin has been utilized in many heterocyclic preparations such as indole-containing compounds, furo- and pyran-annulated, and spiro-compounds. In addition, significant places of its derivatives as pharmaceutical compounds cause it more important. There are a diversity of multi-component reactions of this useful reagent which we highlight the recent reports of them in this review. Also, herein some asymmetric syntheses via 4-hydroxycoumarin is discussed.

*Graduate School of Life and Environmental Sciences, University of Tsukuba, Tennodai 1-1-1, Tsukuba, Japan


A new chlorinated dihydroisocoumarin, palmaerin A (1), and three new brominated dihydroisocoumarins, palmaerins B (2), C (3), and D (4), were isolated from the supernatant of the culture broth containing KCl and KBr of discomycete Lachnum palmae, respectively. The structures of 1-4 were elucidated by spectroscopic data and X-ray diffraction analysis. Compounds 2 and 3 exhibited weak antibacterial activity against Bacillus subtilis and Staphylococcus aureus, while compounds 1-3 showed plant growth regulating activity against Lepidium sativum.

Synthesis of Novel 1-Alkyl-1,2-dihydro-2-Imino-4-quinazolinamines by Tandem Reaction of the Three Components

Zhen Guo, Ping Yin, Ling He, and Qing Rong Qi*

*Department of Medicinal Chemistry, Sichuan University, #17 Renmin South Road 3th section, Chengdu 610041, China


A novel and efficient synthesis of quinazoline derivatives involving copper-catalyzed Ullmann-type coupling reaction was developed. These reactions were performed under mild conditions without the addition of a ligand. The coupling reaction and the subsequent cyclization reaction in series gave rise to the formation of intermolecular C-N bond and intramolecular C-N bond and synthesized novel N, N'-substituted 2-imino-1, 2-dihydroquinazolin-4-amines in moderate to high yields simultaneously.

A Convenient Two-Step Synthesis of 7-Aryl-6,7-dihydrothieno[2,3-b]pyrazines from Aryl(3-chloropyrazin-2-yl)methanones

*Division of Applied Chemistry, Department of Chemistry and Biotechnology, Graduate School of Engineering, Tottori University, 4-101 Koyama-minami, Tottori 680-8552, Japan


An efficient method for the preparation of 7-aryl-6,7-dihydrothieno[2,3-b]pyrazines (3) under mild conditions has been developed. The reaction of aryl(3-chloropyrazin-2-yl)methanones (1), derived from commercially available 2-chloropyrazine, with methylenetriphenylphosphorane in THF at room temperature gave the corresponding 2-(1-arylethenyl)-3-chloropyrazines (2), which were treated with NaSH·nH2O in DMF at room temperature to lead to the desired products (3) in acceptable yields. These products are dehydrogenated with air in refluxing toluene in the presence of a catalytic amount of Pd/C to yield the corresponding 7-arylthieno[2,3-b]pyrazines (4).

*College of Pharmacy, Jinan University, 601 West Huangpu Avenue, Guangzhou, 510632, China


A new α-pyrone glycoside, whitmanoside A (1), along with eight known compounds, including two furanones (2, 3) and six proline-derived cyclic dipeptides (4-9), were isolated from the dried material of the leech Whitmania pigra. The structures of these compounds were established on the basis of their spectroscopic data and acid hydrolysis. This is the first report on the isolation of these compounds from a leech.

An efficient and novel microwave-assisted synthesis of 1H-benzo[d]imidazole derivatives via nitriles and o-phenyldiamines in the presence of polyphosphoric acid (PPA) and phosphoric acid is described. This method provides several advantages such as commercially high availabilities of starting materials, short reaction times, high yields and a simple workup procedure. Systematically antifungal biological tests showed 3f was most promising candidate against six phytopathogenic fungi.
