Journal of the Iranian Chemical Society (Impact Factor: 1.47). 01/2006; 3 (3):233-241. DOI: 10.1007/BF03247213

ABSTRACT The synthesis of 4-thiazolidinones 4a-j in a good yields from the heterocyclization reaction of 2-(benzothiazol-2-ylthio)-N’-benzylideneacetohydrazide 3a-j with SHCH2COOH in DMF in the presence of a catalytic amount of anhydrous ZnCl2 under microwave irradiation is described and compared with conventional synthesis methods. All structures of the newly synthesized compounds were elucidated by elemental analysis and spectral data. Some of the new compounds were tested against bacteria (Gram- ve and Gram+ ve) and fungi.

    ABSTRACT: 2-Mercaptobenzothiazoles are an important class of bioactive and industrially important organic compounds. These compounds are reported for their antimicrobial and antifungal activities, and are subsequently highlighted as a potent mechanism-based inhibitor of several enzymes like acyl coenzyme A cholesterol acyltransferase, monoamine oxidase, heat shock protein 90, cathepsin D, and c-Jun N-terminal kinases. These derivatives are also known to possess antitubercular, anti-inflammatory, antitumor, amoebic, antiparkinsonian, anthelmintic, antihypertensive, antihyperlipidemic, antiulcer, chemoprotective, and selective CCR3 receptor antagonist activity. This present review article focuses on the pharmacological profile of 2-mercaptobenzothiazoles with their potential activities.

    ABSTRACT: The carbonyl group at position 2 of N-acetylisatin behaves as an amide which is more susceptible to nucleophilic attack via ring-opening in the presence of nucleophiles. Because of this behavior, in the present work we describe the microwave synthesis of a series of α-ketoamide and bis-(α-ketoamide) derivatives via the facile ring-opening of N-acylisatin with different amines and diamines. The microwave irradiation afforded the product in less reaction time, higher yield and purity. Reaction of N-acylisatin with methanol under microwave irradiation afforded the α-phenylglyoxyl methyl ester derivatives with excellent yields and purities. Aminolysis of the ester derivatives with piperidine and morpholine afforded the same α-ketoamide derivatives obtained from direct aminolysis of N-acylisatin. The structures of the synthesized compounds were confirmed by FT-IR, NMR, X-ray and elemental analysis.
