    ABSTRACT: This study presents the synthesis of 14 new 1,4-disubstituted piperazine derivatives from allyl bromides of Baylis–Hillman adduct and 4,4-disubstituted benzhydryl piperazines. All the synthesized compounds were further screened for in vitro ACE inhibitor and antimicrobial activities. Among the synthesized piperazine derivatives, compound 12h showed moderate ACE inhibitor activity as compared to the standard, angiotensin-converting enzyme inhibitor (Sigma). The kinetic data (K m, K i and V max values) of enzyme inhibition for compound 12h and ACE inhibitor standard were also determined. Similarly, all compounds were screened against different bacterial strains. Compounds 12a, 12b, 12d, 12h and 12i showed excellent to moderate activity against various tested bacterial strains. Compounds 12b and 12i showed broad spectrum of antibacterial activity against Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, S. aureus MLS 16, Escherichia coli, Bacillus subtilis and Klebsiella planticola, while compounds 12a, 12d and 12i showed promising activity against P. aeruginosa (MIC value of 8.96 μM), S. aureus (MIC value of 42.2 μM) and S. aureus MLS 16 (MIC value of 81.3 μM), respectively. The remaining compounds showed activity at a concentration of >491 μM.

    ABSTRACT: An efficient synthesis of antischistosomal drug praziquantel and analogues was achieved and the synthetic route designed was to afford structurally diverse analogues for better structure-activity relationship understanding. Total of nineteen PZQ analogues with structural variations at amide, piperazine and aromatic moieties have been synthesized and fully characterized. Among all the new analogues tested for antischistosomal activity, one dimethoxy tetrahydroisoquinoline analogue and two tetrahydro-β-carboline analogues exhibited moderate activity against adult Schistosoma mansoni. Tetrahydro-β-carboline analogues showed moderate activity whereas the presence of p-trifluoromethylbenzoyl and p-toluenesulphonyl moieties resulted in complete suppression of antischistosomal activity.

    ABSTRACT: A highly convergent, stereoselective total synthesis of a ten-membered lactone, stagonolide G, is described. Epoxide ring-opening with vinyl Grignard, Yamaguchi esterification and ring-closing metathesis are the key steps involved in the present approach. D-Mannitol was used as a chiral pool material for the construction of both of the key fragments - the olefinic acid and the olefinic alcohol moieties.
