Pyrimidine derivatives with tosyl substitution....!
What is it about?
Substitution of tosyl group on hydroxyacetophenones orhydroxybenzaldehyde and their subsequent condensation yielded several tosyloxy substituted chalcones which were derivatized to obtain the corresponding pyrimidinethione derivatives. The synthesized compounds were characterized by spectroscopic techniques like FT-IR, 1H NMR, 13C NMR, and mass spectrometry. These compounds were subjected to initial screening for their bioactivity using zone of inhibition method and were found moderately active against the tested microorganisms, viz. Mycobacterium smegmatis, Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, and Candida albicans.
Why is it important?
These compounds are easy to synthesize in good yield and purity. Moreover, one can derivatize them by nucleophilic displacement of tosyl group.
