A series of 5-(benzofuran-2-yl)-N-(3-chloro-4-(2-(p-tolyloxy) substituted quinolin-3-yl)-2-oxoazetidin-1-yl)-1-phenyl-1H-pyrazole-3-carboxamide derivatives (4a-f) were synthesized with excellent yields by cyclocondensation reaction of 5-(benzofuran-2-yl)-N′-(2-(p-tolyloxy) substituted quinolin-3-yl)methylene)-1-phenyl-1H-pyrazole-3-carbohydrazide (3a-f) with chloroacetyl chloride in presence of triethylamine in DMF. One pot condensation of 5-(benzofuran-2-yl)-1-phenyl-1H-pyrazole-3-carbohydrazide (1) with 2-(p-tolyloxy) substituted quinoline-3-carbaldehyde (2a-f) in ethanol solvent in presence of catalytic amount of acetic acid gave intermediate compounds (3a-f). The structures of newly synthesized compounds have been substantiated through elemental analysis and spectral studies viz. 1H NMR, 13C NMR, IR and mass spectra. All the synthesized compounds were screened for their in vitro antibacterial activity against pathogenic bacteria such as S. aureus and E. coli at different concentrations.


Azetidinones, p-Tolyloxy, Quinoline carbaldehyde, Pyrazole, Carbohydrazides.
