2(1H)-Quinolone is a privileged nitrogen heterocycle that is found in various bioactive compounds and functional molecules. In particular, derivatives possessing aryl substituents at the 3- and/or 4-positions are significant synthetic targets as they are promising drug leads. This review surveys the synthetic methods for 3- and/or 4-aryl-2(1H)-quinolones that involve transition-metal-catalyzed construction of the 2(1H)-quinolone framework. Transition-metal-catalyzed arylations of 2(1H)-quinolone scaffolds are also surveyed.

A new V-shaped molecule incorporating a dihydropyridine and a pyridinium moiety was synthesized and evaluated for its effect on the interaction between the hydride donor-acceptor pair. Spectroscopic, electrochemical, and computational studies have revealed the presence of the charge transfer interaction as a consequence of the electron donor-acceptor association.

Reaction of 2-(1-adamantylsulfanyl)-3,6-dihalobenzaldehydes with Ohira-Bestmann reagent gave 4,7-dihalobenzo[b]thiophenes along with normal alkyne products. Nine types of 4,7-dihalobenzo[b]thiophenes bearing chlorine, bromine, or iodine atoms, were prepared by this method. Regioselectivity in Suzuki-Miyaura cross coupling reactions of the 4,7-dihalobenzo[b]thiophenes with PhB(OH)2 was also studied.

The optimization of the one-pot, acid-promoted synthesis of pyridine and alkylpyridine derivatives from simple alkyl-1,5-dicarbonyl derivatives and via the corresponding oxime intermediate is described. Of all the combinations of acids and solvents tested, the use of HCl in refluxing dioxane was found to result in the highest chemical yields. Twelve pyridines were prepared using this method.

Rearrangement Reaction in 1-Hydroxyindole Chemistry: A Synthesis of Novel 7-Substituted Yohimbine, and 4a-Substituted 1,2,3,4-Tetrahydro-β-Carboline DerivaTives1

X-Ray analyses of 1-hydroxyyohimbine derivatives definitely show the deviation of the N(1)—O bond from the indole molecular plane. This fact supports our working hypothesis “bishomoallylic conjugation”. The deviation is responsible for the rearrangement reaction in 1-hydroxyindole chemistry. Effective synthetic method for novel 7α- and 7β-heteroarylyohimbine, and 4aα- and 4aβ-heteroaryl-1,2,3,4-tetrahydro-β-carboline derivatives are reported.

A simple, ecofriendly, and effective method was described for forming pyrazolo[3,4-b]pyridines from 5-aminopyrazoles and 3-formylchromones, in good to excellent yields, under microwave irradiation in solvent-free conditions using KHSO4 as a reusable catalyst. Some noteworthy features of this method were its cleanliness, short reaction time, easy work-up, and broad substrate tolerance. The catalyst was reused several times without losing activity.

The conformations of 3-pyridinoyl indoles, which are intermediates of 5-fluoropentyl-3-pyridinoyl indole, were investigated using their X-ray crystal structures. All derivatives existed as s-trans conformers. A pseudo-planar conformation was observed in the 2'-yl isomer of 3-pyridinoyl indoles. On the other hand, twisted conformations were observed in 3-pyridinoyl 2-methylindoles. The conformations of these compounds in solution were also investigated using VT-NMR.

Three new (1-3), together with three known (4-6) isoquinoline alkaloids were isolated from the whole plants of Thalictrum glandulosissimum. Their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic methods, including extensive 1H, 13C, and 2D-NMR techniques. Compounds 1-6 were evaluated for their anti-tobacco mosaic virus (Anti-TMV) activity. The results revealed that compounds 2, 3 and 4 showed potential anti-TMV activities with inhibition rates of (35.6±3.5)%, (36.2%±3.8)%, (46.3%±3.2)%, at the concentration of 20 µM, respectively. These rates are higher than that of positive control.

4-[(Quinolin-4-yl)ethynyl]benzoic acid underwent a cycloreaction with tetraphenylcyclopentadienone to give the hexa(hetero)arylbenzene- 1-(quinolin-4-yl)-2-(4-benzoic acid)-3,4,5,6-tetraphenylbenzene which was N-methylated and finally deprotonated to give the title compound. The molecule adopts a propeller-shaped configuration in which the benzoate ring as well as the phenyl ring adjacent to the quinolinium substituent display non-isochronous resonance frequencies, respectively, due to a hindered rotation. Although the molecule formally belongs to the class of pseudo-cross-conjugated heterocyclic mesomeric betaines, the propeller-shape causes a charge distribution of cross-conjugated systems. DFT-calculations (frontier orbital profiles, geometries) have been carried out.
