Multicomponent Reactions: Microwave-assisted Efficient Synthesis of Dihydropyrimidinones (thiones) and Quinazolinones under Green Chemistry Protocol as Probes for Antimicrobial Activities
Keywords:Multicomponent reactions, Dihydropyrimidinone, Microwave irradiation, Antimicrobial activity.
Microwave promoted diammonium hydrogen phosphate, (NH4)2HPO4, catalyzed three-component Biginelli reaction between an aldehyde, a 1,3-dicarbonyl compound and urea or thiourea under solvent-free conditions afforded the corresponding dihydropyrimidinones and quinazolinones in high yields. The synthesized compounds have been screened for their antimicrobial activity against Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, Vibrio choloriae, Shigella dysenteriae, Salmonella typhi bacteria and Aspargilllus flavus, Saccharomyces cerevisiae and Candida albicans fungi respectively. Some of the synthesized compounds exhibited pronounced antimicrobial activities.
