Friedel−Crafts benzylation of arenes with benzylic alcohols using sulfonic-acid-functionalized hyper-cross-linked poly(2-naphthol) as a solid acid catalyst

The porous poly(2-naphthol) was made-up by combining the 2-naphthol, dimethoxymethane as an cross linker in presence of FeCl3. Furthermore the polymer was functionalized with ClSO3H to get a dense acid catalyst. The reagent is active for benzylation of arenes with benzylic alcohols irrespective of the nature of substituted arenes. This catalyst is good active compared with other acid catalyst used for Friedel−Crafts benzylation.

Preparation of new mono- and bis-amide derivatives of L-isoleucine via amidation of carboxyl and amino groups

Org. Commun. (2021) 14:3 ; 294 - 299

N,N′-Dicyclohexylcarbodiimide  and hydroxybenzotriazole  mediated amination of free COOH group of N-tert-butyloxyoxycarbonyl-L-isoleucine 1 with three aromatic amines  gave the corresponding  amides 2a-c.  Deprotection of N-tert- butyloxyoxycarbonyl groups of 2a-c with AcOH yielded the related amine derivatives 3a-c. The amidation of the free NH2 groups of (3a-c) with phthaloyl dichloride yielded the bis-amide products 4a-c. The synthesized compounds were purified by crystallization and their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic methods such as 1H-HMR, 13C-NMR, FTIR, and micro analysis.

Synthesis of novel salicylic acid-pyrrolone conjugates and investigation of their cytotoxic and genotoxic effects in Allium cepa root tip cells

Org. Commun. (2021) 14:3 ; 280 - 293

In the 20th century, many new drugs have been designed and synthesized to be used for therapeutic purposes. In these syntheses, especially the salicylic acid group is included in the structure of many drugs. The salicylic acid molecule is the starting material of aspirin and is a structurally important compound. There are many commercial products on the market that are synthesized from salicylic acid or contain salicylic acid group. In this study, the synthesis of salicylic acid-pyrrolone hybrid compounds was carried out from the reactions of furan-3-one compounds with 4-aminosalicylic acid and 5-aminosalicylic acid reagents. The synthesis reactions were achieved in three steps and in these synthesis biologically active pyrrolone and salicylic acid groups were integrated. The characterizations of these compounds that were purified by column chromatography and crystallization method were made by FTIR, NMR and HRMS techniques. The cytotoxic and genotoxic potentials of the novel compounds (7a-e) were evaluated at five different concentrations (6.25, 12.5, 25, 50 and 100 μM) using the Allium test system. As a result of cytogenetic analysis, it was determined that high concentrations of some hybrid compounds significantly reduced the number of divisions of A. cepa cells (cytotoxicity in 7a and 7c) and caused chromosomal abnormalities in dividing cells (genotoxicity in 7a, 7c, 7e, and especially 7d).

Synthesis of carbazole-based acetyl benzohydrazides targeting urease enzyme inhibition

Org. Commun. (2021) 14:3 ; 270 - 279
by İrfan Çapan

The carbazole skeleton is the key structural motif of many bioactive molecules including synthetic and natural products. The carbazole derivatives bearing different functional groups have important pharmacological activities and are widely used in medicine and pharmacology. Ethyl 9H-carbazol-9-yl acetate was synthesized from the reaction of the carbazole with ethyl bromoacetate. The acetate ester derivative was converted into the 2-(9H-carbazol-9-yl) acetohydrazide through treatment with hydrazine hydrate. The target compounds were synthesized by using carbazole-hydrazide compound and various aromatic acid chlorides. Acetyl benzohydrazide derivatives were prepared from the nucleophilic addition-elimination reactions of corresponding benzoyl chloride and 2-(9H-carbazol-9-yl) acetohydrazide in THF at room temperature condition. The structures of all newly synthesized compounds were characterized using different spectroscopic techniques, such as FT-IR, 1H NMR, 13C NMR, and HRMS.    The urease enzyme activities of these compounds were investigated using Jack bean urease as the model enzyme.
