Three new isobenzofurans (1-3), together with three known isobenzofurans (4-6) were isolated from the root of Yunnan local sun cured tobacco. Their structures were determined by means of HRESIMS and extensive 1D and 2D NMR spectroscopic studies. Compounds 1-4 were tested for their anti-tobacoo mosaic virus (TMV) activities and compounds 1-6 were tested for their cytotoxicity activities. The results revealed that compounds 1-4 showed high anti-TMV activity with inhibition rate of 31.4, 35.2 and 38.8, 29.6%. These rates are close to that of positive control. Compounds 1-6 also showed moderate-to- weak inhibitory activities against some tested human tumor cell lines with IC50 values in the range of 2.6 -9.5 μM.

Facile and Convenient Syntheses of Fluorine-Containing Pyrimido[5,4-c]quinolines and Benzo[h][1,6]naphthyridines by Condensation Reaction of 2-Methoxy-3-trifluoroacetyl-4-quinolylamine with Aldehydes and Ketones

2-Methoxy-3-trifluoroacetyl-4-quinolylamine reacted easily with various aldehydes in the presence of aqueous ammonia to afford mainly trifluoromethylated pyrimido[5,4-c]quinoline derivatives in moderate to high yields. In contrast, the use of ketones instead of aldehydes in the presence of pyrrolidine, exclusively gave benzo[h][1,6]naphthyridine derivatives in good to excellent yields.

Thielavic acid (1), a new isocoumarin derivative, was isolated from an endophytic fungus Thielavia sp. ECN-115, which was obtained from the stems of Crassula ovata. The relative structure of 1 was established by spectroscopic analyses including extensive 2D-NMR experiments. The absolute configuration was identified as (4S)-thielavic acid by comparing the experimental and calculated electronic circular dichroism spectra.

An one-pot palladium-catalyzed procedure for racemization of (S)-praziquanamine, which is the undesired enantiomer and produced during the resolution step for preparing the anthelmintic drug (R)-praziquantel, has been developed through dehydrogenation of (S)-praziquanamine into 6,7-dihydro-4H-pyrazino[2,1-a]isoquinolin-4-one and then hydrogenation of the double bonds. And a superior racemization method was also developed that (S)-praziquanamine was directly treated with Pd/C under H2 atmosphere to obtain a racemic mixture in quantitative yield with 95% chemical purity. Such a concise and efficient approach to the racemization of (S)-praziquanamine can be useful to recycle the waste enantiomer into the resolution process to obtain the (R)-enantiomer on a large scale.

The title complex, [2,3,9,10,16,17,23,24-octakis(3-carboxyphenoxy)- phthalocyaninato-k 4N] (pyridine-kN)zinc(II) pyridine octasolvate abbreviated as [ZnPc(3-CO2H)8(Py)]ˑ8(Py) (2), has been obtained by recrystallization of [ZnPc(3-CO2H)8]·(1) from pyridine. Molecular structure of 2 determined by X-ray crystallography exhibits the anticipated N5 square pyramidal coordination structure around zinc(II) ion, where the average Zn-N(Pc) and Zn-N(Py) bond lengths are 2.027(4) Å and 2.121(4) Å, respectively. The deviation of the zinc(II) ion from the phthalocyanine N4 plane is 0.417 Å. Eight pyridine molecules are involved in the hydrogen bonding with the carboxylic acid moieties of phenoxy rings in a 1:1 mode. Two discrete phthalocyanine molecules in a unit cell are stacked in a back-to-back fashion with an interplanar distance of 3.376 Å. Pyridine solutions of 1 exhibit well-resolved 1H NMR, UV-Vis, and fluorescent spectra, suggesting that 1 exists as pyridine ligated monomeric species.

A convenient method for the synthesis of imidazo[1,5-c]pyrimidine derivatives has been developed. Thus, benzyl isocyanides are treated with sodium hydride in DMF at 0 ˚C to generate the corresponding benzyl anions, which are allowed to react with 4,6-dichloro-2-(methylsulfanyl)pyrimidine (DCSMP) to afford 1-aryl-7-chloro-5-(methylsulfanyl)imidazo[1,5-c]pyrimidines in one pot in moderate yields.
