SYNTHESIS, CHARACTERIZATION OF SOME 2-AZETIDINONE DERIVATIVES FROM 4- NITRO ETHYL BENZOATE BY MICROWAVE METHOD AND EVALUATION OF THEIR ANTIMICROBIAL ACTIVITYAbstract
Non classical, High-speed, environmentally benign synthesis with microwaves has attracted researchers for organic synthesis a considerable amount of attention in recent years. An expeditious one pot microwave irradiation method for preparation of 2-azetidinones is developed. This method has been assessed as greener methodology. In our present study, series of five novel azetidinones are synthesised which involves the hydrazinolysis of 4- nitro ethyl benzoate with 99% hydrazine hydrate in ethanol in microwave oven to yield the hydrazides.Then hydrazides are condensed with different substituted aromaticaldehydes in DMSO in microwave to form respective Schiff base. Then formation of Schiff bases is followed by cyclisation with chloro acetyl chloride and triethyl amine in DMF to yield corresponding azetidinones. Structures of synthesised compounds were confirmed by 1H NMR, Mass spectral analysis. The compounds are evaluated for their antimicrobial activities. The activities are due to cyclic carbonyl group in azetidinones. Some of the compounds have shown comparable antimicrobial activities against all the microbial strains.
