Homophthalic anhydride reacts with different aromatic amines to produce N-substituted homophthalimides. Bromination of the latter produces 4,4-dibromo-homophthalimide derivatives that can be used as precursors for spiro-derivatives. The dibromo derivatives react with different binucleophilic reagents to produce several spiro-isoquinoline derivatives. Reaction of the dibromo derivatives with malononitrile produces dicyanomethylene derivatives which react with different binucleophiles to produce new spiro-derivatives. Structures of the newly synthesized compounds are proved using spectroscopic methods such as IR, 1H-NMR and 13C-NMR. The newly synthesized compounds were tested for their antimicrobial and antioxidant activities, showing weak or no antimicrobial activity. On the other hand select compounds showed promising antioxidant activities. View Full-Text
