4-(4-Methylphenyl)-5-phenyl-4H-1,2,4-triazol-3-thiol (4) was alkylated to 2-{[4-(4-methylphenyl)-5-phenyl-4H-1,2,4-triazol-3-yl]thio}-1-phenylethan-1-one (5) in alkaline conditions using 2-bromo-1-phenylethanone. The alkylated compound (5) was reduced at the carbonyl group to the corresponding racemic secondary alcohol with an asymmetric carbon, (R,S)-2-{[4-(4-methylphenyl)-5-phenyl-4H-1,2,4-triazol-3-yl]thio}-1-phenyl-1-ethanol (6). Both synthesized compounds, ketone (5) and secondary alcohol (6), are new and have not yet been reported in the literature. All the synthesized compounds were characterized by IR, 1D and 2D 1H-1H, 1H-13C and 1H-15N NMR spectroscopy and by elemental analysis. View Full-Text
