6-Iodo-2-isopropyl-4H-3,1-benzoxazin-4-one as building block in heterocyclic synthesis

As a part of ongoing studies in the synthesis of a variety of heterocycles of biological importance, we report here an efficient and convenient method for the synthesis of novel compounds from 6-iodo-2-isopropyl-4H-3,1-benzoxazin-4-one 1 as building block. The reaction of benzoxazinone 1 with various reagents such as diethylmalonate, sodium azide, and phosphorus pentasulfide yielded the compounds 2–5. The behavior of benzothiazin-4-thione 5 toward formamide and hydrazine hydrate was investigated, forming the compounds 6 and 7. The reaction of quinazolinone derivative 8 with β-D-glucose pentaacetate, ethyl 2-methyl-5-((1S,2R,3R)-1,2,3,4-tetrahydroxybutyl)furan-3-carboxylate, epichlorohydrin and benzenesulphonyl chloride afforded quinazolinone derivatives 9, 10, 12, and 13 respectively. The reaction of quinazolinone derivative 10 with acetic anhydride resulted in formation of the acylated compound 11. The behavior of quinazolinylacetohydrazide derivative 14 toward carbon electrophiles[16] has been investigated by its reaction with ethyl benzoylacetate, potassium thiocyanate, and phenyl isothiocyanate, affording the quinazolinone derivatives 15, 16, and 18, respectively. Treatment of compound 16 with sodium hydroxide followed by hydrochloric acid yielded the mercapto-triazole derivative 17. The structures of the newly synthesized compounds were confirmed by elemental analysis, infrared (IR), 1H NMR, 13C NMR, and mass spectra. The antimicrobial activities of some of the synthesized compounds were preliminarily evaluated.
