The aim of this study is synthesis of new diarylimidazole-quinazolinone hybrid derivatives to target two binding sites of tubulin, an attractive target for design of anticancer drugs. In this report, the location of the accessible space of active site was determined by comparing the crystal structure of different inhibitors in tubulin structure. The docking and molecular dynamic simulations were used to confirm the position and stability of designed compounds. Thirteen new compounds were synthesized and their cytotoxicity were studied on three types of cancerous cell lines. Some of the synthesized compounds showed remarkable anti-proliferative activity in cell culture study.

6-Aminouracils are very useful intermediates for building different categories of heterocyclic compounds. 6-Aminouracils are electron rich compounds due to the presence of free amino group which can initiate interactions with electron deficient centres or activate the nearby C-5 position to start the reaction followed by cyclization in most cases. The present review summarizes the different reactions developed for the synthesis of substituted and annulated pyrimidines. A diversity of substituted pyrimidines was prepared directly from reactions of 6-aminouracils with some electrophilic reagents, meanwhile formation of fused pyrimidines were
achieved by reaction of 6-aminouracils with a variety of reagents such as aromatic and aliphatic aldehydes, acyclic and cyclic methylene ketones, cyclic enols, alkynes, iminium salts and a diversity of other reagents.

A total of eleven compounds were isolated from the ripe and dried fruits of Embelia oblongifolia Hemsl. Compound 1 was a new one named embeloside A, in addition, compounds 2-4, 6 and 10 were isolated from this genus for the first time. Their molecular structures were elucidated by 1D/2D NMR spectroscopic analysis, HR-ESI-MS spectral data and charged aerosol detector (CAD). Further, hypoglycemic activity evaluation showed that compound 1 could reduce the fasting blood glucose levels in diabetic rats. Therefore, the results suggest that compound 1 might provide a theoretical basis for the development of potential hypoglycemic drugs. The discovery of compounds 1-11 might provide experimental guidance for the further development of Embelia oblongifolia Hemsl.

To synthesize cyclotriphosphazene derivatives having multi-functional groups, aryloxylation of 2,2-diamimo-4,4,6,6-tetrachlorocyclotriphosphazene 2 was examined. A mixture of gem-disubstituted N3P3(NH2)2(ArO)2Cl2 9gem, tri-substituted N3P3(NH2)2(ArO)3Cl 10, and tetra-substituted N3P3(NH2)2(ArO)4 11 was obtained, especially 11 was obtained selectively when excess amount (6 equiv.) of ArONa was used. On the other hand, mono-substituted N3P3(NH2)2(ArO)Cl3 8 and non-gem-di-substituted N3P3(NH2)2(ArO)2Cl2 9non-gem-cis and 9non-gem-trans were not detected.
