Synthesis of 4-Triazolylamino- and 4-Benzothiazolylamino-3-nitro-2H-[1]-Benzopyran-2-ones and their Antimicrobial Activity.


2H[1]-Benzopyran-2-one derivatives are heterocyclic oxygen compounds which find wide usage in pharmacy [1]. Many of them are plant components and play an important role in various processes of life. A significant number of them show different biological activities [2-3] as antimicrobial [4-6], antioxidant [7-9], antifungal [10-11], antimalarial [12-14] and hepatoprotective activities [15-17]. Many of substituted benzopyran-2-one derivates showed anticoagulant, HIV protease [18] inhibition, sedative, analgesic and antitubercular [19] activity. Biological activity of these derivatives is conditioned by their structure. The presence of different substituents on benzopyran ring shows impact on the type and potency of biological activity. Despite efforts to find sufficient connection between the structure and biologic activity of these derivatives, until now there was no such general connection. Extraordinary biological importance of such derivatives has generated a great interest in their synthesis. In support of this, these compounds are the subject of study by many researchers. In continuation of our previous studies and our attempts for synthesis of new derivatives [20-21], in this paper we aimed to synthesize some new derivatives by condensation reaction of 4-hydrazinyl-3-nitrobenzopyran-2-one and aromatic aldehydes, and through other condensation reactions, who could serve as parapharmaceutical products.


All experiments were carried out in acetonitrile as an aprotic

solvent, under reflux reaction conditions. The reactions were monitored by TLC using Merck Kieselgel-60 (F-254) on benzene: toluene: glac. acetic acid bath (ratio 85:10:5, by volume, and observed by UV-lamp). Purification of products was done by recrystallization from various solvents. Melting points were measured on a paraffin oil bath in open capillary tubes and they were not corrected. The IR spectra were recorded in KBr discs on a Shimadzu 8400S FTIR Spectrometer with 4 [cm.sup.-1] resolution. [sup.1]H-NMR spectra were obtained in DMSO-[d.sub.6] on UNITY plus 500 "NMR 1" Spectrometer. Chemical shifts are reported in parts per million (ppm) downfield from tetramethylsilane as an internal standard ([delta]0.00). Microanalyses were preformed on a Perkin-Elmer 240 B CHN analyzer.

Antibacterial activity of compounds were screened applying the Kirby-Bayers method (discs d = 5.5 mm, max. capacity 10 [micro]g), measuring of inhibition zones around the discs which are marked with DMF, concentration 2 mg/mL, 4 mg/mL and 6 mg/mL solutions) were investigated.

Our study on physiologically active compounds shows a preparative method for obtaining new substituted benzopyran-2-ones via condensation reactions. We report that 4-chloro-3-nitro-2H-[1]benzopyran-2 one (2) reacts readily with various substituted aminotriazoles and 2-benzothiazoles to form the corresponding 4-triazolylamino-, respectively 4-benzothiazolylamino-3-nitro-2H-[1]benzopyran-2-ones 4(a-e).

4-Chloro-3-nitro-2H-[1]-benzopyran-2 one (2) was obtained in 92% yield by reacting equimolar amounts of 4-hydroxy-3-nitro-2H-[1]-benzopyran-2one (1) with phosphorus oxychloride and N, Ndimethylformamide [24]. Product 2 was subjected to condensation with substituted aminotriazoles 3(a-b) and 2-aminobenzothiazoles 3(c-e) in acetonitrile under reflux to yield the respective 4-triazolylamino 3- nitro-2H-[1]-benzopyran-2-ones 4(a-b) and 4benzothiazolylamino-3-nitro-2H-[1]-benzopyran-2ones 4(c-e).

Condensation of 2 with 3-amino-5-mercapto1, 2, 4-triazole (3a) in acetonitrile solution under reflux yielded 4-(5-mercapto-1, 2, 4-triazolyl-3amino)-3-nitro-2H-[1]-benzopyran-2-one (4a). Similarly, treatment of 2 with 3-amino-5-carboxy-1, 2 4- triazole (3b) gave 4-(5-carboxy-1, 2, 4-triazolyl-3amino)-3-nitro-2H-[1]-benzopyran-2-one (4b). Moreover, compound 2 reacts with 2-amino-4 methoxybenzothiazole (3c), to afford 4-(4methoxybenzothiazolylamino)-3-nitro-2H-[1]benzopyran-2-one (4c). When compound 2 reacts with 2-amino-6-nitrobenzothiazole (3d) gives 4-(6nitro-2-benzothiazolylamino)-3-nitro-2H-[1]benzopyran-2-one (4d) and when it reacts with 2amino-6-fluorobenzothiazole (3e) in the presence of catalytic amount of triethylamine gives 4-(6-fluoro-2benzothiazolylamino)-3 -nitro-2H-[1]-benzopyran-2one (4e). Alkali hydrolysis of the products 4(a-e) affords 2-hydroxy-ra-nitroacetophenone (5).

By tautomerization of precursors of the product 5 an imine intermediate was formed. Then, reaction is followed by imine hydrolysis and decarboxylation respectively (See Scheme 1).


The structure of the resulting products was analyzed using IR, [sup.1]H-NMR and 13C-NMR spectra, as well as their elemental analysis.

Formation of 4a was confirmed by using [sup.1]HNMR (DMSO-[d.sub.6]) spectrum. A proton singlet at [delta]2.10 ppm corresponds to S-H proton, the proton doublet at [delta]7.65 ppm, corresponds to H-5 and doublet at [delta]7.25 ppm resulted from H-8 of benzene ring. The spectrum also displayed a doublet of doublet at [delta]7.40 ppm resulted from aromatic H-6 and a doublet of doublet at [delta]7.10 ppm, from H-7. Signals at [delta]9.80 and [delta]4.60 ppm assigned for triazole NH and coumarin NH group also are displayed. [sup.13]C-NMR spectrum of 4a showed characteristic absorptions responsible for 11 carbon atoms at [delta]164.5 ppm for C = O, [delta]151.6 and [delta]114,1 ppm for pyrone C, [delta]147.2 ppm and [delta]145.5 ppm for triazole C and 5144.9, [delta]128.1, [delta]125.3, [delta]125.0, [delta]124.9, [delta]119,6 ppm for aromatic C.

IR spectrum of this product also showed the absorption modes at 31163077 and 2721 [cm.sup.-1] corresponding to vCH stretching of aromatic ring and vSH stretching of mercapto group. Typical vCO absorption of unsaturated six-membered lactones is observed at 1722 [cm.sup.-1]. Signals which are responsible for aromatic vC = N and vC = C vibrations appears at 1677 and 1613 [cm.sup.-1], respectively.

Signals at 3160 [cm.sup.-1] and at 2980 [cm.sup.-1] present the stretching of aromatic vCH (as) and vCH (sym) vibrations. A sharp peak at 1735 [cm.sup.-1] and the peaks at 1611 [cm.sup.-1] and 1560 [cm.sup.-1] are responsible for vCO str, vC = N and vC = C (ar), respectively.

The absorption modes at 1521 [cm.sup.-1] and 1355 [cm.sup.-1] may be assigned to stretching vN[O.sub.2] (as) and vN[O.sub.2] (sym). Absorption for vC-O-C of lactonic system appears at 1210 [cm.sup.-1]. A sharp peak at 775 [cm.sup.-1] resulted from aromatic [delta]CH absorptions.

The peak at 1275 [cm.sup.-1] may have resulted from vC-F absorption of aromatic benzothiazole system. The vC-O of lactonic system is assigned at 1350 [cm.sup.-1].

[sup.1]H-NMR spectrum of 4e showed a singlet at 54.76 ppm resulting from NH proton. Doublets at 57.88 and 57.55 ppm are responsible for H'4 and H'-5 absorptions, whereas a singlet peak at [delta]8.76 ppm resulted from H' -7 proton. A multiple peak at [delta]7.41 ppm corresponds to aromatic H-6 and H-7, whereas doublets at [delta]7.63 and [delta]7.20 ppm resulted from H-5 and H-8 absorptions. 13C-NMR spectrum of 4e showed characteristic absorptions at [delta]168.3, [delta]167.6, and [delta]159.3 ppm for C = O, C'-2 and C-4. Characteristic peaks at [delta]156.9, [delta]152.5, [delta]140.5 and, [delta]109.5 ppm results from C'-7, C-O, C-N (benzothiazole) and C-3 whereas signals at [delta]132.1, [delta]127.8, [delta]125.6, [delta]123.0, [delta]122.2, [delta]120.5, [delta]116.4, [delta]116.1, [delta]114.4 are responsible for aromatic carbon atoms.

Hydrolysis of products 4(a-e) in alkaline media resulted in formation of 2-hydroxy-conitroacetophenone (5). This argues that derivatives which contain benzopyran-2-one moiety are very sensitive to basic conditions. The characteristic IR absorptions of product 5 appeared at 3080-3400[cm.sup.-1] (a broad band) and 2950 [cm.sup.-1] which are responsible for vOH stretching, vOH (chelate), aromatic vCH and methylene vCH absorptions. The characteristic peak derived from lactonic carbonyl as a result of intramolecular hydrogen bond appears to have moved down at 1637 [cm.sup.-1]. In the IR spectrum of the hydrolysis product 5 also showed bands at 1560 [cm.sup.-1] for vC = C (ar), 1449 [cm.sup.-1] for vN[O.sub.2] (as), 1369 [cm.sup.-1] for vN[O.sub.2] (sym) and 754 [cm.sup.-1] aromatic 5CH (oop). These values and melting point have been compared to the previous reported analysis [22] and show similar results.

We also have examined the antibacterial activity of the synthetic compounds. Our investigation is directed toward testing their activity against S. aureus, E. coli and Klebsiella. Applying the Kirby-Bayer method [23] we measured diameters of the inhibition zone around discs which are previously marked with DMF solutions of 2 mg/mL, 4 mg/mL and 6 mg/mL.

These derivates have shown moderate to high activity against S aureus, E. coli and Klebsiella. A series of methoxybenzotiazolyl- fluorobenzothiazolyland nitrobenzothiazolyl-derivatives were more active against S. aureus. Emphatic activity against E. coli exhibited triazolylcarboxylic- fluorobenzothiazolyl derivatives, whereas methoxybenzothiazolyl- and nitrobenzothiazolyl-derivatives are more active against Klebsiella. Product 4c was more active against S. aureus relative to compound 2 ([d.sub.4c] /[d.sub.2] = 1.4-1.6), whereas the same product was more active against Klebsiella ([d.sub.4c] /[d.sub.2] = 1.2-1.5). Furthermore, product 4b was more active against E. coli ([d.sub.4b] /[d.sub.2] = 1.5 -1.9). In general, increasing the concentration causes high activity against these microorganisms (figures 1, 2 and 3).


By catalytic condensation reaction of 4-chloro-3-nitro-2H-[1]-benzopyran-2-one (2) and substituted aminotriazoles 3(a-b) and 2-aminobenzothiazoles 3(c-e), 4-triazolylamino-3 -nitro-2H-[1]-benzopyran-2-ones 4(a-b) and 4-benzothiazolylamino-3-nitro-2H[1]-benzopyran-2-ones 4(c-e) are synthesized in good yield. We may conclude that these derivates have shown moderate to high activity against S aureus, E. coli and Klebsiella. Compounds 4c, 4e and 4d are more active against S. aureus. Emphatic activity against E. coli exhibited compounds 4b and 4e, whereas 4c and 4d are more active against Klebsiella. In general, products of series 4 are more active against these microorganisms relative to compound 2. Increasing the concentration causes high activity against these microorganisms.
