Recent achievements in the construction of mainly nitrogen containing heterocycles by the intramolecular cyclization of alkenylanilides via activation of unsaturated bonds are reviewed. NIS or ZnX2 activation of 2-alkenylanilines and 2-alkynylanilines gave quinolines or indoles in high yields. Reaction of 2-aminobenzaldehyde with acetophenones under basic conditions gave dibenzonaphthyridines in one-pot operation. Other nitrogen and chalcogene containing heterocycles were also synthesized by the reaction of ketone hydrazones with chalcogen halides.

The reaction of N-allylamides with ArS(ArSSAr)+, which was generated and accumulated by the low-temperature anodic oxidation of ArSSAr, afforded the corresponding ArS-substituted oxazolines in moderate to good yields. In-situ electrochemical oxidation of ArSSAr in the presence of N-allylamides was also applicable. Oxazolines bearing various substituents were successfully synthesized by using the present reactions.

We have studied the synthesis of enantiomerically pure optically active β-amino acid ester derivatives with good biological activities. Here, we report that both enantiomers of β-amino acid ester derivatives that contain a pyrimidine moiety can be produced in an enantioselective Mannich-type one-pot reaction with good yields and excellent enantiomeric excess (up to >99% ee) by chiral cinchona alkaloid thiourea catalysts. An evaluation of the antiviral activities of our reaction products against tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) was promising with high and selective biological activities. Compound ()-4h showed an excellent anti-TMV activity (curative activity, 56.1%; inactivation activity, 70.7%; protection activity, 95.7%) at 500 μg/mL. These values exceed those of the commercially available antiviral agent, ningnanmycin (curative activity, 52.6%; inactivation activity, 62.0%; protection activity, 90.2%). These novel chiral compounds could be used as protective agents against TMV disease.

In this work, 5, 11-diethyl-6-formylindolo[3,2-b]carbazole (DEFICZ) was crystallized in a monoclinic crystal system with the space group of P121/n1. Its spectral properties and potential interaction with protein including BSA and HSA were also studied correspondingly. The crystal structure was theoretically investigated using the density functional tight-binding method. In order to address the regioselective associated with the synthesis of DEFICZ, the B3LYP density functional theory (DFT) calculation has been carried out to estimate the relative stability of different active intermediates. In addition, time-dependent density functional theory method was used to unveil the origin of the absorption spectra of DEFICZ as observed experimenta.

In this work, the addition of 2-methylazaarenes benzylic sp3 C-H to electron-deficient olefins, catalyzed by pepsin from pig gastric mucosa was reported. A series of azaarene derivatives (1 mmol) were obtained in good yields at 60 °C for 60~72 h with 20 mg pepsin as catalyst. This is a facile method and the reaction conditions are mild, which expands the application of biocatalysis in sp3 C-H functionalization of azaarenes.

The synthesis of 4-aryl-1H-2-benzothiopyran-3-carboxylic acid derivatives by a sodium hydride-mediated thiopyran ring formation of 2-[(2-aroylphenyl)methylsulfanyl]acetic acid derivatives is reported. The precursors were prepared by successive treatment of lithium o-lithiobenzyl mercaptides, which were generated by the reaction of o-bromobenzyl mercaptans with two equivalents of butyllithium, with aromatic aldehydes and 2-bromoacetonitrile or tert-butyl 2-bromoacetate, followed by oxidation of the resulting sulfanyl alcohols with pyridinium chlorochromate (PCC).

*State Key Laboratory of Molecular Engineering of Polymers, Department of Macromolecular Science, Fudan University, Songhu Road No. 2005, Shanghai, 200433, China


Two series of N-pyridylpyrazole derivatives containing 1,2,3-triazole and quinazolin-4(3H)-one substructures were designed and synthesized. In total, 18 novel compounds were prepared, and all compounds were characterized by 1H NMR, 13C NMR and elemental analysis (EA). Preliminary bioassay results revealed that a few of new compounds with quinazolin-4(3H)-one moiety exhibited good insecticidal activity against the oriental armyworm (Mythimna separata). In addition, the compounds Ia-h with 1, 2, 3-triazole moiety showed broad-spectrum antifungal activities against Fusarium oxysporum f.sp.cucumerinum, Cercospora arachidicola Hori, Botryosphaeria dothidea, Alternaria solani, Gibberella zeae and Phytophthora capsici at 50 μg/mL concentration. The EC50 values of Ib and If against Botryosphaeria dothidea were 13.9 and 11.0 μg/mL, respectively, which were comparable to Chlorothalonil. These results indicated the potential application of N-pyridylpyrazole derivatives as fungicide in further study.
