Synthesis and Bioactivity of Pyrroloindazoles: An Overview

Manas Chakrabarty,* Moumita Rakshit, and Gandhi K Kar

*Department of Chemistry, Presidency University, 86/1, College Street, Kolkata-700073, India


In this review, the synthesis and bioactivity of pyrroloindazoles have been presented. The pyrroloindazoles were synthesised either by the heteroannulation of tetrahydro-indolones/isoindolones, aminoindazoles, Sonogashira/Cacchi indazolic substrates or acyl/aroylindole ketoxime dinitrophenyl ethers or by the cycloaddition of indolynes, indazolic betaines, styrylpyrazoles and nitroindazoles. Several pyrroloindazoles showed analgesic, antiinflammatory and antitumor properties, inhibition of Pim kinase and soluble guanylate cyclase, and antagonism of NMDA-receptor.

Ethyl 4,7-bis(5-bromothiophen-2-yl)-1,2,5-oxadiazolo[3,4-c]pyridine-6-carboxylate 2 reacted with phenyl-, 4-methylphenyl-, 4-methoxyphenyl-, 3,4-dimethoxyphenyl-, 1-naphthyl-, and 2-naphthyl-boronic acid to give the corresponding π-extended 4,7-bis(5-arylthiophen-2-yl) derivatives 3a–f, which emitted fluorescence at around 700 nm in DMSO solution. The 4-methoxy and 2-naphthyl derivatives (3c and 3f) emitted fluorescence at 729 nm (13717 cm-1, Φ = 0.02) and 714 nm (14005 cm-1 and Φ = 0.11), respectively, with a large Stokes shift (184 and 182 nm for 3c; 4631 cm-1 and 4791 cm-1 for 3f).

Development of a Practical Synthesis of 7-Bromo-8-methoxycarbonyl-3,3-dimethyl-3,4-dihydro-1H-quinoxalin-2-one

Kazuhiro Kudo,* Takahiro Honda, and Noriyoshi Yamamoto

*Product Supply Division, Santen Pharmaceutical Co., Ltd., 348-3, Aza Suwa Oaza Shide Taga-cho Inugami-gun Shiga, Japan


Synthesis of 7-bromo-8-methoxycarbonyl-3,3-dimethyl-3,4-dihydro-1H-quinoxalin-2-one from 5-amino-2-bromobenzoic acid was achieved in an overall yield of 27% over four steps. This is a significant improvement from the previous six-step process, which afforded only a 12% yield. The previous process was optimized by adding a high-yielding alkylation step under mild conditions as well as by reducing the number of isolation steps and eliminating purification by column chromatography.

Crystal Structures of 2-Furylbenzimidazoles with Antiangiogenic Inhibition of VEGF in Cell Line MCF-7

Keith J. Flanagan, Yasser M. Shaker, Ahmed Temirak, Hoda I. El Diwani, and Mathias O. Senge*

*Medicinal Chemistry, Trinity Centre for Health Sciences, Trinity College Dublin, St. James's Hospital, Dublin 8, Ireland


The first crystal structures of four 2-furylbenzimidazole acetohydrazide derivatives are reported herein. The compounds have been shown to be planar with a small cant that varies from 4 to 30°. The X-ray crystal structure of the compounds 7-10 revealed that compounds are oriented in the cis configuration which suggests that the acid hydrazide group is essential for the enhanced potency of 2-furylbezimidazoles as anti-angiogenic agents.

*Department of Chemistry, Birla Institute of Technology and Science, BITS-Pilani, Pilani-333301, Rajasthan, 333031, India


The paper describes the results of a new four-component synthesis of pyranopyrazole heterocycles by solvent-free one-pot grinding of malononitrile, hydrazine, ethyl acetoacetate, and various aldehydes in the presence of a base. The reaction proceeded smoothly at room temperature with good yields in very short reaction time. The synthesised compounds were evaluated for their in-vitro antibacterial activity against three different bacterial and three different fungal strains. The highlight of this work is that the synthesis was activity-driven. The brief SAR correlation found that the tested compounds showed better activity against fungal strains.

*Key Laboratory of Functional Organic Molecules of Xinxiang City Henan Province, College of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Henan Institute of Science and Technology, Xinxiang Henan, 453002, China


An efficient process for the synthesis of 3,6-dihydro-2H-pyran-4-boronic acid pinacol ester has been developed in one-pot manner. Starting from the condensation of 4-tetrahydropyranone with hydrazine hydrate, the subsequent treatment of hydrazone with copper(II) bromide-triethylamine and 1,8-diazabicyclo[5.4.0]undec-7-ene (DBU) conveniently gave 4-bromo-3,6-dihydro-2H-pyran, which was then conducted through palladium-catalyzed borylation to afford the desired product using a low loading of a Pd catalyst.

A novel, efficient one-pot approach to synthesize 2-(arylmethylene)-1,4-benzoxazin-3-ones has been developed. This method effectively combined the Sonogashira reaction of electron-deficient propiolamide and successive 6-exo-dig cyclization to selectively provide (Z)-isomers of 2-(arylmethylene)-1,4-benzoxazin-3-ones in good yield.
