ABSTRACT A novel series of 4-[4-(6-phenyl-pyrimidin-4-yl)-phenoxymethyl]-chromen-2-ones [5-7(a-e)] were synthesized from various 4-bromomethyl coumarins 1(a-e). The synthesized compounds were screened for in-vivo analgesic and anti-pyretic activities at a dose of 25 and 100 mg/kg body weight (b.w), respectively. Among them, compounds 5(d), 6(c) and 7(d) exhibited significant analgesic activity comparable with standard drug analgin using Tail-flick model. Compounds 5(a) and 7(a-d) showed significant anti-pyretic activities comparable with standard drug aspirin using yeast-induced pyrexia model. DNA cleavage study by agarose gel electrophoresis method was also studied. Qualitative SAR studies indicate that, compounds with amino group at 2-position of pyrimidine ring enhances analgesic and anti-pyretic activities and compounds with hydroxyl and thio group at 2-position of pyrimidine ring increase DNA cleavage activities.

    ABSTRACT: Notopterygii Rhizoma et Radix (Qianghuo), including Notopterygium incisum Ting ex H. T. Chang (NI) and Notopterygium franchetii H. de Boiss (NF), is an important traditional Chinese medicine. Of these two plants, NI, is more commonly used and has a much higher price in the marketplace. To compare these two plants, a combination of gas chromatography-mass spectrometry (GC-MS) and high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC) was carried out, thus obtaining an overall characterization for both volatile and none-volatile compounds. Combined with hierarchical cluster analysis (HCA) and principal component analysis, GC-MS was successfully applied to distinguish NF and NI. The chemical constitutes of volatile oil in NI and NF were firstly compared in detail, and 1R-alpha-pinene, beta-pinene and 4-isopropyl-1-methyl-1,4-cyclohexadiene had great contribution to the discrimination. Fingerprints of 14 batches of Qinghuo samples were also established based on HPLC, and an obvious difference was found between the two species. The chromatographic fingerprints were further analyzed by similarity analysis and HCA. The present study is the first reported evaluation of two origins of Notopterygii Rhizoma et Radix by GC-MS and HPLC, which will facilitate quality control and its clinical application.

    ABSTRACT: We investigated the antibacterial activity of some new macromolecules such as bis‐pyrazoline, bis‐pyrazole, bis‐pyrimidines prepared from the reaction of bis‐chalcone with thiosemicarbazide/phenyl hydrazine/guanidine hydrochloride/thiourea. All the macromolecules have been characterized by IR, 1H NMR, 13C NMR, mass and elemental analyses. The antibacterial activity of these compounds was first tested in vitro by the disc diffusion assay against two Gram‐positive and two Gram‐negative bacteria, and then the minimum inhibitory concentration was determined with the reference to standard drug chloramphenicol. The results showed that pyrazoline derivative showed better antibacterial activity on S. typhimurium and E. coli than the reference drug chloramphenicol.

    ABSTRACT: We have used pharmacophore hybridization technique of drug design and designed a pharmacophore model 2-methylphenylsemicarbazone which is having hydrogen acceptor site, hydrogen donor site, lipophilic site etc using ligandscout-2.02 software. A series of 2-methylphenyl-semicarbazone was synthesized and evaluated for their antipyretic activity using boiled cow milk induced pyrexia in rabbits. Compound 11 was the most active compound. The possible metabolites of some selected synthesized chalconesemicarbazones were predicted by computational method using Pallas version-3.1 ADME-Tox prediction software. The major pathway of metabolism was found to be p- hydroxylation and amide hydrolysis
