A new member of the 2-acetylpyridine family has been prepared and characterized by NMR and IR spectroscopies.
Antimicrobial Activity and DFT Studies of a Novel Set of Spiropyrrolidines Tethered with Thiochroman-4-one/Chroman-4-one Scaffolds
A novel series of 14 spiropyrrolidines bearing thiochroman-4-one/chroman-4-one, and oxindole/acenaphthylene-1,2-dione moieties were synthesized and characterized by spectroscopic techniques, as well as by three X-ray diffraction studies, corroborating the stereochemistry. Quantum chemical ...
A reaction of biomass-derived aldehyde synringaldehyde and half an equivalent of 1,4-dichlorobut-2-yne was attempted in order to obtain a bis-aldehyde with an alkyne spacer. The reaction was carried out in a basic media to effect bis O-alkylation, as described in literature for the preparation of ...
4′-(5-Methylfuran-2-yl)-2,2′:6′,2″-terpyridine: A New Ligand Obtained from a Biomass-Derived Aldehyde with Potential Application in Metal-Catalyzed Reactions
The new ligand 4′-(5-methylfuran-2-yl)-2,2′:6′,2″-terpyridine (1) was prepared in one step from 2-acetylpyridine and 5-methylfurfural. The latter is an aldehyde that can be readily obtained from biomass. The new terpyridine molecule was characterized by 1H and 13C-NMR spectroscopy as well as by ...
A new thiophene-substituted terpyridine derivative has been prepared and characterized. This ligand features a thiophene heterocycle (as an electrochemically polymerizable unit) as well as two chlorine atoms for further functionalization.
A new pyrrole-substituted terpyridine derivative that possesses an allene moiety was obtained as an “unexpected” sole product during an attempt to alkylate the N-atom of pyrrole with propargyl bromide in order to obtain an alkyne-functionalized terpyridine.
A new thiophene-substituted terpyridine derivative has been prepared through the reaction between 5-n-propylthiophene-2-carboxaldehyde and 2-acetylpyridine. This terpyridine derivative bears an alkyl chain linked via a thiophene heterocycle.
Three-Component Access to Functionalized Spiropyrrolidine Heterocyclic Scaffolds and Their Cholinesterase Inhibitory Activity
A novel one-pot [3+2]-cycloaddition reaction of (E)-3-arylidene-1-phenyl-succinimides, cyclic 1,2-diketones (isatin, 5-chloro-isatin and acenaphtenequinone), and diverse α-aminoacids such as 2-phenylglycine or sarcosine is reported. The reaction provides succinimide-substituted dispiropyrrolidine ...
