Novel 5-alkyl 1,3,4-oxadiazole 2-thione derivatives were synthesized by the converted of carboxylic acid to ester by esterfication or secondary amine to ester by treated with ethylchloroacetate to give compound(1) this compound treated with hydrazine hydrate to give acid hydrazide (2) and with potassium hydroxide and carbon disulfide to give 1,3,4-oxadiazole derivative compounds (3) this compounds treated with different primary amine and with terephthaldehyde to give mannich bases (4).


Heterocyclic compounds are very important compounds which have been found to maintain significant biological activity are represent are important moiety in creation of novel medical materials , adversity of biological activities and pharmaceutical uses have been attributed to them such as anti-inflammatory ,antifungal, antibacterial, antitumor and analgesic(1-4).

The oxadiazole chemistry has been developed extensively and still developing. Presently, there are a number of drugs used clinically ,which comprise oxadiazole, tetrazole moiety in association with various heterocyclic rings(5).

A series of substitution tetrazole have have been synthesized by different methods such as from pyridine (2-azido azines) which equilibrium with fused tetrazoles(6). Besides, the mannich bases have a wide biological activates. A new 5-alkyl and 3-(2,4-dimethylphenyl) substituted 1,3,4-oxadiazole-2-thionederivatives were synthesized by the ring closure reaction of various acyl hydrazide with carbondisulfide.Dawoodhas synthesized some of mannich bases starting from hydrazide derivatives and found that these derivatives have biological activity.

Accordingly,we wish to report herein the synthesis of compounds which possesses a chemically important to achieve better antimicrobial, antibacterial---etc.


1-Synthesis of 2-Acid hydrazide(2) (9)

Acid hydrazide was synthesized by addition of the hydrazine monohydrate (80%) (0.01mol.) to ester compounds (19) (0.01mol.) with stirring, then the ethanol absolute (10 ml) was added and refluxed until the precipitate formed (1.5hrs). After cooling, the precipitate was filtered and recrystallized from ethanol.

2-Synthesis of 5-(alkyl)-1,3,4-oxadiazole-2(3H)-thione(3) (10)

A mixture of acid hydrazide (0.01mol) in absolute ethanol (25ml) with (0.02mol) of potassium hydroxide was stirred in ice bath, carbon disulphide (0.02mol) was added drop wise with vigorously stirring, the reaction mixture was refluxed for 3hrs. After evaporation under reduced pressure, the residue was poured into acidified water .The precipitate was filtered, dried and re crystallized from ethanol.

3-Synthesis 3,3'-(1,4-phenylenebis((N-sub-phenyl)methylene))bis(5-alkyl-2-yl)-1,3,4-oxadiazole-2(3H)-thione(4a-e) (11)

To ethanolic solution of oxadiazole compound(3) (0.02mol), terephthaldehyde (0.01mol) was added and stirred for (90min)., in ice bath. Then the cold solution of different primary amine (0.02mol) were added drop wise while stirring. The resulting mixture was refluxed for 6-7hrs in water bath the residue obtained after the evaporation of the solvent under reduced pressure was recrystallized from ethanol. m.p=(107-110)0C for compound(1) yield (66%), m.p=(110-112)0C for compound(2), yield (70%). m.p=(133-135)0C for compound(3) yield (77%) m.p=(191-193)0C for compound(4) yield (69%) m.p=(199-200)0C for compound(e) yield (62%).

Results and discussion

Compound (3) was synthesized from the reaction of compound (2) with carbon disulfide and potassium hydroxide in absolute ethanol. This compound was characterized by its melting point and F.T.IR spectrum. The F.T.IR spectrum of compound (3) indicated the disappearance of carbonyl group band at (1685)cm-1 and appearance of bands at (1610) cm-1 due to υ (C=N) of oxadiazole ring and at (1290)cm-1 due to υ (C-O-C) (cyclic) group in oxadiazole, all these good evidences for the structure assigned to this compound. Besides a strong band at (1078) cm-1 which due to υ (C=S) thione group.

Compound (3) may be found as two tautomeric forms thione (3) and thiol (3a) structure.

There is much evidence proved for preference of compound (3) because it is more stable than (3a). Compound (3) may be found as dimmer (3b), this dimer has hydrogen bonding between the(C=S) of the first molecule and (-NH) of the second molecule.

There are many theoretical calculations which proved that the compound (3) is more stable than (3a) by using the chem. Office program 2006, as the measuring of bond lengths and bonds angles between atoms.

The length of the bond between (-N-C=S) is (1.4 0A) in compound (3) but in (3a) (-N=C-SH) is (1.30A), (-O-C=S) is (1.50A) in (21) but (O-C-SH) is (1.40A) these values lead to decrease the stress in oxadiazole ring in compound (3) is less than stress in compound (3a).the distance between (N-H) is (1.00A) but the distance between(-S-H) is (1.30A) ,these values indicated that the more preferred form is (3).

characterization of (1,4-phenylenebis((N-sub-phenyl)methylene))bis(5-(furan-2-yl)-1,3,4-oxadiazole-2(3H)-thione(4a-e).

These compounds were prepared from the reaction of two moles of primary amine, oxadiazole derivatives (3), and one mole of terephthaldehyde in ethanol absolute as a solvent.

Compounds (4a-e) are a Mannich bases because the reactants are aldehyde derivatives, secondary amine and primary amine, The structures of the prepared compounds (4a-e) are characterized by C.H.N. analysis and FT.IR, 1HNMR, spectroscopy, the melting point is recorded and the purity of these compounds are checked by T.L.C. technique and gas chromatography.

The FT.IR spectra of compounds (4a-e), showed the following bands: at (3371-3304) cm-1 due to υ (NH), at (2887-3837) cm-1 for υ (CH) aliphatic, and at (1091-1111) cm-1 for υ (C=S) thione group. All the spectral data for these compounds are listed in table (1).
