Novel synthesis of quinoline-5,8-dione analogues

Teitgen, Alicen M. 21 July 2012 (has links)
The chemistry of quinonline-5,8-dione as a functional group is a developing field because of its various biological aspects. Lavendamycin and streptonigrin are known antibiotic, antitumor agents containing the quinolone-5,8-dione functional group believed to provide their antitumor properties. Most cancer cells show an elevated level of NQO1 enzyme which activates lavendamycin to act as an antitumor agent. The research goal is to explore different synthetic methods and reactions to produce novel quinolone-5,8-dione analogues with unique structural features while keeping the selective cytotoxicity. Lavendamycin contains a β-carboline and streptonigrin has a substituted pyridine connected to the 2-position of the quinolone-5,8-dione. The overall goal of this project will develop synthetic methods to create 1,2,3-triazoles and 1,2-diazoles attached to the quinoline moiety from azides and diazonium salts, respectively. In order to accomplish this, 8-hydroxyquinoline undergoes through a four step synthesis to install an azide at the two position of the quinoline ring. 8-Hydroxyquinoline was oxidized to produce 8-hydroxyquinoline-N-oxide, converted into 8-acetoxy-2-hydroxyquinoline with acetic anhydride, reacted with POCl3 to produce 2-chloro-8-hydroxyquinoline, and treated with sodium azide to form 2-azido-8-hydroxyquinoline. However it was found that the product cyclized to yield 8-hydroxy-tetrazole[1,5-a]quinoline. In the quinoline-5,8-dione synthesis, 7-amidoquinoline-5,8-dione is prepared through a three step synthesis. 8-Hydroxquinoline was nitrated to form 8-hydroxy-5,7-dinitroquinoline, hydrogenated/acylated to give 5,7-diacetamido-8-acetoxyquinoline, and oxidized to yield 7-acetamidoquinoline-5,8-dione. In order to reach the end of this project, the four step tetrazole and the three step quinoline-5,8-dione syntheses required merging. Further research will focus on the optimization of these syntheses. / Synthesis of 8-hydroxy-tetrazole [1,5-a] quinoline -- Synthesis of 7-amino-quinoline-5,8-dione -- Novel synthesis of quinoline-5,8-dione analogues. / Department of Chemistry

Chemistry of quinoline-2-carbaldehyde derivatives with malononitrile and formation of indolizines

Murali, Dheeptha 13 August 2011 (has links)
The quinoline-5,8-diones are an important class of compounds with a wide spectrum of biological activites such as antibacterial, antiasthmatic, antifungal, antitumour and antiparasitic agents. Over the past three decades many variously substituted derivatives of quinoline-5,8-diones have been synthesized and reported. The majority of them dealt with the chemistry of C-6 and/or C-7 substituted quinolinediones and were related to Lavendamycin. Our lab has developed several procedures for the condensation (Knoevenagel) and reduction of aldehydes and ketones with malononitrile. When this reductive alkylation procedure was attempted with quinoline-2-carboxaldehyde, a crude product was observed by NMR spectroscopy. This product rearranged upon attempted purification via recrystallization or column chromatography. The nucleophilic attack of the quinoline N on the C of the nitrile followed by a proton transfer and a tautomerization resulted in the creation of indolizine. We will study the reductive alkylation of a series of quinoline-5,8-diones with carboxaldehydes at the C-2 position with malononitrile. This reaction is carried out in 95% ethanol with no catalysts present. This reaction mixture is then diluted with additional 95% ethanol and then cooled in an ice/water bath before the addition of sodium borohydride (NaBH4) to afford the desired monosubstituted malononitrile. We have also carried out the reactions with a range of other substituted quinoline compounds. In these cases the indolizines were not observed. It is assumed that the indolizine product does not form due to the presence of substituents on the C-8 position. Additional studies will focus on unsubstituted C-8 quinoline rings to prepare other novel indolizines. Otherwise, various reactions are performed to force the formation of indolizine. / Introduction/background -- Preparation of quinoline derivatives and their respective carboxaldehydes -- Preparation of monosubstituted malononitriles and indolizines. / Department of Chemistry

A New Approach to Benzo[h]quinoline Skeleton

Huang, Chiao-wei 25 July 2007 (has links)
We use stepwise [3+3] annulation to prepare the asymmetric glutarimides, and then we can build substituent group in C6 position after choosing regioselective addition reaction. And we establish a new approach to benzo[h]quinoline skeleton starting from glutarimides via ring-closing reaction. Finally, we applied this method to the synthetic studies toward benzo[h]quinoline derivatives.

Synthesis of novel quinoline derivatives and their cytotoxicity in A549 lung cancer cells

Nkosi, S'busiso Mfan'vele January 2017 (has links)
Thesis submitted in fulfilment of the requirements for the Degree of Master's in Chemistry, Durban University of Technology, 2017. / Quinoline and its derivatives represent an important class of nitrogen-containing heterocylces as they are useful intermediates in organic synthesis and possess a broad spectrum of biological activities, such as anti-asthmatic, anti-inflammatory and anti-malarial activity. Hence, synthesis of novel compounds with potent biological activities is important in medicine. Significant research is directed into the development of new quinoline based structures and new methods for their preparations. In the past, synthesis of complex molecules was accomplished by step-wise reaction. This was time consuming and yield was generally low. Nowadays, multi-component reactions (MCRs) are being used since three or more substrates can be reacted in a one-pot reaction. Therefore yields are higher and the reaction is more efficient. In this research investigation novel quinoline derivatives, using the multi-component reaction protocol, were synthesized. After characterization of the product by several spectroscopic techniques, the biological potential of these compounds were assessed using lung cancer cell lines, bacteria and molecular modeling in an enzymatic system. In the synthetic part of this study, the first step was the preparation of the starting compound 2- chloro-3-formyl quinoline for which the Vilsmeier-Haack cyclisation protocol was used. The cyclisation was carried out by combining DMF and POCl3 at 5°C to form an electrophile which then reacted in situ with N-phenylacetamide at 100ºC to afford 2-chloro-3-formyl quinoline in high yield (95%). This was followed by the synthesis of a series of novel quinoline derivatives in a MCR system comprising 2- chloro-3-formyl quinoline, malononitrile, aromatic amines and dimethyl acetylenedicarboxylate in the presence of a catalytic amount of triethylamine. Valuable features of this routine included high yields, extensive substrate range and straight forward procedures. Eight novel poly-functionalised dihydropyridine quinoline derivatives were synthesized, purified and characterized. The outline for the synthesis of poly-functionalised dihydropyridine quinoline derivatives is presented graphically in Scheme 1. Scheme 2 shows the eight compounds synthesized and used subsequently for further studies. .

Et3N, EtOH Scheme 1: Graphical representation for the synthesis of poly-functionalised dihydropyridine quinoline derivatives The novel eight compounds were screened for their potential activity in lung cancer cell lines. A549 cells were incubated for 24 hours with a range of concentrations of each compound, in triplicate, in a micro-titre plate together with an untreated control. Each experiment was conducted twice on separate occasions; the results from the first set matched the repeated experiment. The cells were then incubated (37ºC, 5% CO2) with the MTT substrate for 4 hours. Thereafter all supernatants were aspirated and DMSO was added to the wells. Finally the optical density was measured at 570 nm at a reference wavelength of 690 nm with an ELISA plate reader. The net MTT dependant absorbance (optical density) of each sample was calculated by subtracting the average absorbance of the blank from the average absorbance of each sample. Data were represented as mean optical density plus or minus the standard deviation. Four of the synthesized compounds (A1-A8) were evaluated for their cytotoxicity activities. The anti-cancer assay indicated that poly-functionalised dihydropyridine quinoline compounds, A2, A3 and A4 have good potential as anti-cancer drugs. Among them, A2 and A4 proved to be dose dependent with A4 having the highest toxicity at 250 µM and A8 having the highest toxicity at 125, 250 and 500 µM, whereas A1, A5, A6 and A7 were not cytotoxic.

Docking of A1 to Human mdm2 protein provided insights into the binding regions. Three hydrogen bonds were formed between GLU 25 (2.7 Å distance), LEU 27 (3.2 Å distance) and LEU 54 (3.2 Å distance) atoms with binding energy of -8.91 kcal/mol. Docking of A1 with Human mdm2 indicated the lowest binding energy thereby showing strong affinity of the ligand molecule with the receptor which has been stabilized by strong hydrogen bond interactions in the binding pocket. This confirms that A1 is a better inhibitor for E3 ubiquitin-protein ligase mdm2 than all the other compounds tested (A2-A8). Further, the eight novel poly-functionalised dihydropyridine quinoline derivatives were evaluated for their antibacterial activity. This was performed using the MABA method against three strains i.e. Gram negative; Pseudomonas aeruginosa (ATCC 27853), Escherichia coli (ATCC 25922) and Gram positive; Staphylococcus aureus (ATCC 29213) using the broth micro dilution method. Standard antibiotics (ciprofloxacin and nalidixic acid) were used as positive controls and DMSO was used as a negative control. The results obtained from the anti-bacterial assay showed that compounds A4, A7 and A8 have high activity, whereas A2 and A3 showed poor activity against all the tested bacterial strains. Compound A6 showed no activity against S. aureus and E. coli. / M
