Our current work focuses upon the formation and characterization of some 1,4-disubstituted cyclopenta[d][1,2]oxazines via ring closure with hydroxyl amine on a 1,2-diacyl cyclopentadiene precursor. Recently, we formed and characterized two fused-ring disubstituted oxazines (R = thienyl, 4-chlorophenyl) in high yield, which serve as precursors towards oxazine-based conducting polymers. X-ray crystallographic analysis of the thienyl oxazine did show favorable π-π stacking, critical to effective intermolecular charge transfer. To further evaluate its electronic and optical properties, theoretical calculations were performed on the thienyl oxazine, including Natural Bond Orbital analysis. Calculated values suggest a strong potential for Non-Linear Optical applications.

Chemoselectivity-Tunable [5 + 2] Cycloadditions of Allenamides and Oxidopyryliums

[5 + 2] Cycloadditions between allenamides and oxidopyryliums are described. A series of substituted cycloheptanones were synthesized by this method with moderate to good yields. Interestingly, the chemoselectivity of this reaction could be tuned by changing the electron-withdrawing groups on the allenamide nitrogen atom. When oxazolidinone chiral auxiliaries were introduced in the allenamide substrate, [5 + 2] cycloadducts could be obtained with high diastereoselectivities. This reaction provides a useful synthetic protocol for the construction of highly substituted seven-membered rings.

An approach to the synthesis of novel 2-thio-acylated thiazoles containing pyrazole moiety is described. The pyrazole-thiazolethione derivative as the key building block for bis-heterocycles was formed via a Knoevenagel-type condensation of rhodanine with pyrazol-3-one. Thermal treatment of the pyrazole-thiazolethione derivative with acid anhydride and/or chloride in refluxing toluene caused diacylation reaction to give the corresponding 2-thio-acylated thiazoles containing pyrazole moiety. All the synthesized compounds were characterized by spectroscopic analysis and were tested for their DNA cleavage activity in vitro. Furthermore, they were evaluated for their antifungal activity against Candida albicans and Saccharomyces cerevisiae.

Three new (1-3), together with two known (4 and 5) pentenyl coumarins were isolated from the roots and stems of Yunnan local sun cured tobacco. Their structures were determined by means of HRESIMS and extensive 1D and 2D NMR spectroscopic studies. Compounds 1~5 were tested for their anti-methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (anti-MRSA) activity. The results revealed that compound 2 showed strong inhibition with inhibition zone diameter (IZD) of 18.6 ±2.6 mm, and compounds 1, 3, 4, and 5 showed good inhibition with IZD of 14.2±2.2, 14.8±2.3, 12.4 ±2.2, and 15.1±1.8 mm, respectively. Compounds 1-5 were also tested for the antioxidant activity, and they showed notable antioxidant activity with IC50 values of 4.92, 4.18, 4.43, 4.65, and 4.07 μg/mL, respectively

Synthetic Strategy to New Terphenyl-Type Bis-Pyrrole Arenes Starting from Highly Electron-Deficient 4-Nitroanilines with 1,4-Diketones

A new synthetic method for converting highly electron-deficient 4-nitroanilines into terphenyl-type bis-pyrrole arene derivatives has been developed, which is not easy to accomplish using conventional methods because of their poor reactivity. This process involves an indium-mediated reductive cyclization reaction of highly electron-deficient 2,6-disubstituted nitroanilines in the presence of a 1,4-diketone to form 2,6-disubstituted 4-(1H-pyrrole-1-yl)anilines followed by cyclization with another 1,4-diketone to give the target bis-pyrrole arene products in moderate to high yield.

To investigate the structure–activity relationship of L-755,807 for amyloid-β aggregation inhibitory activity, L-755,807 analogs were synthesized and biologically evaluated. The results suggest that a hydrophobic conjugated carbon chain with a terminal hydrophilic functional group is essential for the potent activity. These findings provide a starting point for identifying the pharmacophore of L-755,807.
