Fluorine-containing heterocycles: Part III. Synthesis of some new furo[2,3-b]-, pyrazolo[3,4-b]- and thieno[2,3-b]pyridines with anticipated biological activities

By Etify A. Bakhite, Abdu E. Abdel-Rahman and Elham A. Al-Taifi


3-Cyano-6-(2-thienyl)-4-trifluoromethylpyridine-2(1H)-one (1) and its thiono analog 2 were prepared by the reaction of (2-thenoyl)-ω,ω,ω-trifluoroacetone with cyanoacetamide or cyanothioacetamide, respectively. Interaction of compound 1 with ethyl chloroacetate or chloroacetamide led to the regioselective formation of O-alkylated pyridines 3 and 10. The latter compounds underwent some successive reactions to furnish the promising furopyridines (4 and 7–9) and pyrazolopyridines (12–15). The reaction of 2 with chloroacetamides or chloroacetonitrile furnished 2-functionalized 3-amino-6-(2-thienyl)-4-trifluoromethyl-thieno[2,3-b]pyridines (16a, b) which were used as key intermediates in the synthesis of the title thienopyridines. Structures of the newly synthesized compounds were established on the basis of their elemental and spectral (IR, 1H NMR and mass) analyses
