Synthesis of 2-Cyanopyrimidines
Molbank 2019, 2019(4), M1086; https://doi.org/10.3390/M1086 (registering DOI) - 22 Oct 2019
Abstract
4,6-Dichloro-2-(methylthio)pyrimidine (7) was converted to 4-chloro-6-methoxy-2-(methylthio)pyrimidine (15) and 4,6-dimethoxy-2-(methylthio)pyrimidine (14). Chlorination of the latter with N-chlorosuccinimide (NCS) affords 5-chloro-4,6-dimethoxy-2-(methylthio)pyrimidine (16) in 56% yield. Both methylthiopyrimidines 15 and 14 were converted in two steps to [...] Read more.
4,6-Dichloro-2-(methylthio)pyrimidine (7) was converted to 4-chloro-6-methoxy-2-(methylthio)pyrimidine (15) and 4,6-dimethoxy-2-(methylthio)pyrimidine (14). Chlorination of the latter with N-chlorosuccinimide (NCS) affords 5-chloro-4,6-dimethoxy-2-(methylthio)pyrimidine (16) in 56% yield. Both methylthiopyrimidines 15 and 14 were converted in two steps to 4-chloro-6-methoxypyrimidine-2-carbonitrile (13) and 4,6-dimethoxypyrimidine-2-carbonitrile (12), respectively, after oxidation to sulfones and displacement of the sulfinate group with KCN. 4,6-Dimethoxypyrimidine-2-carbonitrile (12) was chlorinated with NCS to give 5-chloro-4,6-dimethoxypyrimidine-2-carbonitrile (10) in 53% yield. All new compounds were fully characterized. Full article

Novel One-Pot Synthesis of Methyl 4-Hydroxy-2-thioxo-1,2-dihydroquinoline-3-carboxylate: Synthetic and Crystallographic Studies
Molbank 2019, 2019(4), M1085; https://doi.org/10.3390/M1085 - 14 Oct 2019
Abstract
A new suitable method of synthesis of methyl 4-hydroxy-2-thioxo-1,2-dihydroquinoline-3-carboxylate by condensation of methyl 2-isothiocyanatobenzoate and methyl malonate is described. The structure of the compound both and by-product methyl 2(methoxycarbonothioylamino)benzoate was confirmed by means of elemental analysis, 1H NMR, 13C NMR, LC/MS [...] Read more.
A new suitable method of synthesis of methyl 4-hydroxy-2-thioxo-1,2-dihydroquinoline-3-carboxylate by condensation of methyl 2-isothiocyanatobenzoate and methyl malonate is described. The structure of the compound both and by-product methyl 2(methoxycarbonothioylamino)benzoate was confirmed by means of elemental analysis, 1H NMR, 13C NMR, LC/MS and single crystal X-ray diffraction. UV/Vis and IR spectra of compounds are described. The presence of a strong intramolecular hydrogen bond between the hydroxy group and the carbonyl oxygen atom of the ester group in methyl 4-hydroxy-2-thioxo-1,2-dihydroquinoline-3-carboxylate is shown. The crystal structure of product was stabilized through intermolecular hydrogen bonds. Full article

Reactions of Polychlorinated Pyrimidines with DABCO
Molbank 2019, 2019(4), M1084; https://doi.org/10.3390/M1084 - 14 Oct 2019
Abstract
The reaction of 2,4,5,6-tetrachloropyrimidine (4) and 4,5,6-trichloropyrimidine-2-carbonitrile (1) with DABCO (1 equiv.), in MeCN, at ca. 20 °C gives 2,4,5-trichloro-6-[4-(2-chloroethyl)piperazin-1-yl]pyrimidine (5) and 4,5-dichloro-6-[4-(2-chloroethyl)piperazin-1-yl]pyrimidine-2-carbonitrile (6) in 42% and 52% yields, respectively. The new compounds were fully characterized. Full article

3-{[(2,3-Dichlorophenyl)amino]methyl}-5-(furan-2-ylmethylidene)-1,3-thiazolidine-2,4-dione
Molbank 2019, 2019(4), M1083; https://doi.org/10.3390/M1083 - 03 Oct 2019
Abstract
The compound 3-{[(2,3-Dichlorophenyl)amino]methyl}-5-(furan-2-ylmethylidene)-1,3-thiazolidine-2,4-dione has been designed, synthesized, and screened for its in vitro antibreast cancer activity, using human breast adenocarcinoma cell lines (MCF-7) and in vitro anti-inflammatory activity. By hemolysis assay, it showed that it has a nonhemolytic and nontoxic effect on human [...] Read more.
The compound 3-{[(2,3-Dichlorophenyl)amino]methyl}-5-(furan-2-ylmethylidene)-1,3-thiazolidine-2,4-dione has been designed, synthesized, and screened for its in vitro antibreast cancer activity, using human breast adenocarcinoma cell lines (MCF-7) and in vitro anti-inflammatory activity. By hemolysis assay, it showed that it has a nonhemolytic and nontoxic effect on human blood cell. The title compound 5, subjected to in vitro activities, showed that it is cytotoxic with an IC50 of 42.30 µM and a good anti-inflammatory agent. The docking results against cyclin dependent kinase 2 (CDK2) (PDB ID: 3QQK) gave insights on its inhibitory activity. Full article

The title compound, (iPr)2NC(=S)SCH2C(=O)OH (1), was synthesized by conventional methods and its X-ray crystal structure was determined by X-ray crystallography. The compound was further characterized by analytical, IR, UV, 1D NMR (1H and 13C{ [...] Read more.
The title compound, (iPr)2NC(=S)SCH2C(=O)OH (1), was synthesized by conventional methods and its X-ray crystal structure was determined by X-ray crystallography. The compound was further characterized by analytical, IR, UV, 1D NMR (1H and 13C{1H}), and 2D NMR (DEPT-135) spectroscopy, and density functional theory (DFT) methods. X-ray crystallography on 1 confirms the formulation and reveals a nearly orthogonal relationship between the planar NCS2 and C2O2 residues. In the crystal, hydroxyl-O–H⋯O(carbonyl) hydrogen bonds lead dimers via an eight-membered {⋯OCOH}2 ring. Full article
