  • Abstract

    Theoretical calculations of bond dissociation energy (BDE) have been useful for elucidating the high capacity of the OH groups of phenolic antioxidants. BDE calculations were conducted for substituted 2,6,7-trihydroxy-9-(4-hydroxyphenyl) xanthen-3-ones, using density functional theory (DFT) at B3LYP level and 6-31G* basis set in vacuum-phase. Results of BDE values for xanthene derivatives ranged from 85.01945 to 98.32893 kcal mol-1. The structure–activity relationship was examined in the light of those results and particular attention was payed to interpretation of the reactivity of the OH group and the radical formed after H-removal from the molecule. EHOMO, as alternative parameter of antioxidant activity, was calculated and showed good correlation as well. Furthermore, physicochemical properties included in Lipinski's rule of 5 and polar surface area were calculated to determine compounds’ solubility properties and their appropriateness for oral intake in humans

  • Abstract

    Novel (N', N''' E, N', N'''E)- N', N'''- ((4, 6- dihydroxy -1,3 -phenylene) bis (ethan-1ylidene)) bis (2-hydroxybenzohydrazide Schiff base ligand and its Mn (II), Fe (II), Co (II), Ni (II), Zn (II), Bi (III), Hg (II) and Ag (I) complexes have been successfully prepared and characterized using 1H-NMR, mass spectra, IR, UV-VIS and ESR spectra, magnetic moments, conductance measurements, as well as elemental and thermal analyses (DTA and TGA). Analytical and spectral data indicate that, ligand coordinates to the metal ion as neutral bi-, tri-, or hexadentate, monobasic tridentate and dibasic hexadentate. Molar conductances in DMF solution indicate that, the complexes are non-electrolytes. ESR spectra of solid complexes showed axial or isotropic spectra with a d(X2-y2) ground state with covelent bond character. It was interestingly found that, the Cu (II) complexes (2), (5), (6) and (7), Co (II) complex (18) and Zn (II) complex (12) and mixed complexes (9) and (11) have been recorded the highest cytotoxicity against HepG-2 with IC50 17.8, 8.05, 23.3, 6, 4.42, 42.1 and 9.24 respectively. The cytotoxicity of the ligand and its metal complexes was found to be concentration dependent.

  • Abstract

    Some transition metal complexes of Mn(II), Fe(II), Co(II) and Sn(II) ions with tridentate N,O containing Schiff base ligand 2-{(4-hydroxybenzylidene) amino} phenol derived from condensation of 2-amino phenol with 4-Hydroxy Benzaldehyde have been prepared and characterized by molar conductance ,magnetic susceptibility, TLC, electronic, Infrared and thermal analysis. During complexation reaction with transition metal ions, Schiff base act as a deprotonated tridentate ligand and IR spectra showed that N and O atoms are coordinated to the central metal atom. Molar conductance study have shown that all the complexes were non-electrolytic in nature. Magnetic susceptibility data coupled with electronic spectra suggested a distorted octahedral structure of the complexes. GA and DTG analysis was evident that all complexes were thermally highly stable and provided information in support of proposed octahedral structure of the complexes. The overall reaction was monitored by TLC analysis. The Schiff base and its metal complexes have been shown moderate to strong microbial activity.

Performance and Theoretical Study of Corrosion Inhibition of Mild Steel in 2M Hydrochloric Acid Solution by N-Benzyl Piperidin-4-one Semicarbazones

K. Raja  A.N. Senthilkumar , S. Umamatheswari  and K. Tharini

  • Abstract

    Acid solutions are used in industries during various processes such as acidic cleaning, pickling and oil well acidification which generally leads to serious metallic corrosion. It has been found that one of the best methods of protecting metals against corrosion involves the use of inhibitors. Inhibitors are added to the acid solution to minimize acid attack on metal. A large number of organic compounds including heterocyclic compounds were studied as corrosion inhibitors for mild steel. Most of inhibitors are toxic and expensive so the research activities in recent times are geared towards developing cheap, non-toxic and environmentally safe corrosion inhibitors. The present paper describes a study of N-benzyl piperdin-4-one thiosemicarbazone (BPTSC) and N-benzyl piperdin-4-one semicarbazone (BPSC) as corrosion inhibitors for mild steel in 2M hydrochloric acid using potentiodynamic weight loss, polarization, impedance measurements, SEM with EDS and quantum chemical studies

Rasha Khalid Abbas, Abdalfatah Abdalla Fadlelmula, Fatma Seleman Elsharbasy

  • Abstract

    The effect of storage duration (zero time, six months and two years) on the performance of four cultivars of Hibiscuss L. (namely: Rahad, Fashir, Kass and Abiad)- was studied by evaluating some of its constituents as, organic acids (citric, ascorbic and tartaric), anthocyanin's (malvidin and pelargonidin), pH and essential amino acids under the semi -arid conditions of Sudan. HPLC and amino acid analyzer were used in this study. It was found that, there was a significant effect of storage duration on pH, organic acids, anthocyanin's and essential amino acids content where, two years gave significantly higher pH values. Storage for two years Roselle cultivars yield the highest amount of ascorbic acid. But, there was a significant difference between storage duration on organic acids separately, Anthocyanin's also were significantly affected by storage duration, pelargonidin and Malvidin were found to be higher at harvest time then they decreased after six months of storage. Essential amino acids content decreased with increase storage duration. With respect to cultivars it was found that, there was no significant different among cultivars in the pH, while the organic acids were significantly affected, where, Kass cultivar contains the highest amount of total organic acids. On the other hand, Rahad cultivar gave significantly the highest amount of the Anthocyanin's and essential amino acids content among all other cultivars.

T. Rajendran, G. Balakrishnan, K. Senthil Murugan, V. K. Sivasubramanian,M. Ganesan

  • Abstract

    We have synthesized and evaluated a simple salphen-based “turn on” fluorescent pH probe. This Salphen compound inheriting the aggregation-induced emission (AIE) phenomenon displays strong green fluorescence with large Stocks shifts in water-acetonitrile mixed solvent systems. Combining advantages of aggregation-induced emission (AIE) and chemical reactivity of phenol towards OH-/H+, it can be used as ratiometric fluorescent pH probe with a broad pH range (2-12) in water. The probe displayed an apparent color change, which could be observed by the naked eye under a UV lamp

Archana S. Nair, P.K. Radhakrishnan

  • Abstract

    A series of novel Cd(II) complexes, viz., [Cd(BDAP)Cl2] (1), [Cd(BDAP)Br2] (2), [Cd(BDAP)I2] (3), [Cd(BDAP)(NO3)](NO3) (4) and [Cd(BDAP)(ClO4)](ClO4) (5) of the Schiff base ligand, 2,3- di(imino-4’-antipyrinyl)butane (BDAP) derived from the 1:2 condensation of 2,3-butanedione and 4-aminoantipyrine have been synthesized and characterised by elemental analysis, molar conductivity as well as spectroscopic and thermal studies. The ability of the complexes to effectively bind with protein has been investigated by bovine serum albumin-binding interactions using fluorescence spectroscopy, which shows that all the complexes could substantially quench the intrinsic fluorescence of BSA through a static quenching process. The moderate protein binding suggested that they can be easily transferred through biological fluids. In the in vitro studies for potential biological activity, all complexes show moderate antibacterial properties and excellent antifungal properties, with [Cd(BDAP)Cl2] expressing maximum activity

Design synthesis and crystallization of acetaminophen

Majda Srabovic, Melita Huremovic, Benjamin Catovic, Samra Kulic, Aida Taletovic

  • Abstract

    Acetaminophen (paracetamol) is a synthetic non-opioid derivative of p-aminophenol and basic bioactive molecule in numerous pharmaceutical preparations for the treatment of colds and flu. In combination with opioid analgesics, acetaminophen can also be used in the management of more severe pain such as post-surgical pain and providing palliative care in advanced cancer patients. Design of synthesis of acetaminophen is based on a modern approach of choosing the right synthetic route and using methods necessary for the characterization of the resulting pharmaceutically active compound, thereby providing reliable parameters of the chemical quality of the synthesized molecules. Formation of the preferred form of acetaminophen is a process made up of two stages, where in the first stage an acid catalyzed reaction gives the crude acetaminophen. The reaction takes place according to the mechanism of nucleophilic addition in which the nitrogen atom of the p-aminophenol as nucleophile by attacking a carbonyl group of acetic anhydride forms an intermediate which undergoes the further elimination of the acetate anion. Recrystallization is one of the most common techniques used for purifying drug solids. One of the goals of this study was to achieve the results through the crystallization process in optimum conditions, in order to improve the yield and adequate purity of synthesized acetaminophen. In pharmaceuticals cyclodextrins have mainly been used as complexing agents to increase the aqueous solubility of poorly water-soluble drugs through noncovalent inclusion complexation and to increase their bioavailability and stability. Complexation with beta cyclodextrin was attempted to improve solubility of acetaminophen
