General description

3-Hydroxy-4-methoxybenzaldehyde on condensation with furan-2-carboxylic acid hydrazide and thiophene-2-carboxylic acid hydrazide yields Schiff-bases. It undergoes condensation reaction with1-azabicyclo[2.2.2]octan-3-one to give (Z)-2-(3-hydroxy-4-methoxybenzylidene)-1-azabicyclo[2.2.2]octan-3-one.

Application

3-Hydroxy-4-methoxybenzaldehyde was used as starting reagent during the two-step stereoselective synthesis of the anticancer drug (Z)-combretastatin A-4 and glycitein synthesis.

4-Methoxyresorcinol (3) was synthesized as the precursor for glycitein (6) synthesis by the oxidation of 3-hydroxy-4-methoxybenzaldehyde (1) to the aryl formate with H2O2 and a catalytic amount of SeO2. Glycitein (6) was synthesized by cyclization of 2,4,4'-trihydroxy-5-methoxydeoxybenzoin (5) with N,N-dimethylformamide

A high-yielding, two-step stereoselective synthesis of the anticancer drug (Z)-combretastatin A-4 (1) has been devised. The method uses the Perkin condensation of 3,4,5-trimethoxyphenylacetic acid and 3-hydroxy-4-methoxybenzaldehyde followed by decarboxylation of the cinnamic acid intermediate using copper and quinoline. The iodine-catalyzed

New monomeric cobalt and cadmium complexes with Schiff-bases, namely, N'-[(E)-(3-hydroxy-4-methoxyphenyl)methylidene]furan-2-carbohydrazide (L¹) and N'-[(E)-(3-hydroxy-4-methoxyphenyl)methylidene]thiophene-2-carbohydrazide (L²) are reported. Schiff-base ligands L¹ and L² were derived from condensation of 3-hydroxy-4-methoxybenzaldehyde (iso-vanillin) with furan-2-carboxylic acid hydrazide and thiophene-2-carboxylic acid hydrazide, respectively.
