Anti-cancer and Antioxidant Activities of Some New Synthesized Mannich Bases Containing an Imidazo (2, 1-B) Thiazole Moiety
Keywords:Imidazo [2, 1-b] thiazole, One-pot reaction, Mannich bases, Antioxidants, Anti-cancer screening
Synthesis and preliminary biological evaluation of imidazo (2, 1-b) Thiazole derivatives is reported. Under Mannich conditions, a series of new imidazo (2, 1-b) Thiazole derivatives were synthesized. Starting from the reaction of 2- amino thiazole with 4- bromo phenyl bromide to produce 5-(4-bromo phenyl) imidazo (2, 1-b) thiazoles, following by introduce the substituted aminomethyl at position 6-by reacting with different aromatic amines under Mannich conditions to afford 6-secondary amine-5-(4-bromo phenyl) imidazo (2,1-b) thiazole in high yields.
FT-IR, 1H NMR, and 13C NMR techniques were used to characterize the synthesized derivatives. In addition, all compounds were tested for their antioxidant activity, and three of them were examined for cytotoxic activity against kidney cancer using an MTT assay. The product (A9) has shown an excellent anti-cancer activity with 69.69 value.
