Synthesis Some Novel Pyrazolo[3,4-D]Pyrimidine Clubbed With Phenothiazine Nucleus and Their Biological Evaluation

Authors(1) :-Nirul V. Gothi

The reaction of 2-(methylthio)-10H-phenothiazine (1) with hydrazine hydrate afforded 1-(10H-phenothiazin-8-yl)hydrazine (2) and that with ethyl acetoacetate afforded 3-methyl-1-(10H-phenothiazin-8-yl)-1H-pyrazol-5(4H)-one (3), which was condensed with different aromatic aldehydes and thiourea to give a series of 4,5-dihydro-4-(aryl)-3-methyl-1-(10H-phenothiazin-8-yl)-1H-pyrazolo[3,4-d]pyrimidine-6-thiols (4a-h). The compounds 4a-h were characterized by FT-IR, 1H NMR, 13C NMR, mass spectra and elemental analysis. All the newly synthesized compounds 4a-h were evaluated for their antitubercular activity against Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv using radiometric BACTEC and broth dilution assay methods. The results show that compounds 4b, 4d and 4f exhibited excellent anti-tubercular activity with percentage inhibition of 93, 91 and 96, respectively, at a MIC of <6.25 μg/mL. While, compounds 4a, 4c, 4e, 4g and 4h exhibited moderate to good anti-tubercular activity with percentage inhibition of 75, 68, 74, 54 and 63, respectively at a MIC of >6.25 μg/mL.
