[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: beta-formyl-beta-nitroenamines possess both an electrophilic formyl group and a nucleophilic amino group and, therefore, serve as C3N1 building blocks having a nitro group to afford nitropyridones and aminonitropyridines with a functional group at the 3-position. Upon treatment with malonic acid derivatives or beta-keto esters, nitropyridones were obtained, whereas reactions with functionalized acetonitriles afford aminonitropyridines, via a formal transfer of an alkyl group from the ring nitrogen to the imino group. These procedures provide practical and useful methods for preparation of heterocycles with a nitro group.
[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: Bacterial resistance to antibiotics, particularly to multiple drug resistant antibiotics, is becoming cause for significant concern. The only really viable course of action is to discover new antibiotics with novel mode of actions. This review focuses on antibiotic resistance mechanisms of Enterococcus and Campylobacter, and new antibacterial agents against Enterococcus and Campylobacter through de novo or semi- synthesis in the period from 2003 until mid- 2013.

[Show abstract][Hide abstract] ABSTRACT: A number of compounds have been prepared in order to improve pharmacological roles of antihyperglycemic activity. In the present paper, a series of 3-benzyl-2-(4'-substituted phenyl)-4(5H)-(4″-nitrophenyl amino)-1,3-oxazolidines (6a-e) were tested against hyperglycemia. Their antihyperglycemic activity was evaluated by streptozotocin (STZ) and sucrose-loaded (SLM) models. Compounds 6a, b, c, d, and e displayed significant reductions in blood glucose in the streptozotocin and sucrose loaded rat models. The purity of the synthesized compounds was characterized by means of IR, (1)H-NMR, mass spectral and elemental analysis.
