Abstract: The present disclosure describes a novel, cost-effective process for preparation of a 4-oxo-1,2,3,6,7,11b-hexahydro-4H-pyrazino-[2,1-a]isoquinoline derivatives. Specifically, it discloses a process for the preparation of the anthelmintic drug praziquantel through the use of a novel intermediate, 2-[(2,2-dimethoxyethyl)benzyl amino]-N-phenethylacetamide. This present disclosure also describes a novel crystalline form of 4-oxo-1,2,3,6,7,11b-hexahydro-4H-pyrazino[2,1-a]isoquinoline.
Abstract: The present invention relates to a process for the preparation of succinylcholine chloride, a pharmaceutically active compound used as skeletal muscle relaxant which comprises condensing succinic anhydride with N,N-diemthylaminoethanol using a catalyst in presence of a solvent to form bis[2-(dimethylamino)ethyl]succinate; in situ purifying the bis[2-(dimethylamino)ethyl]succinate using a base; reacting pure bis[2-(dimethylamino)ethyl]succinate with methyl chloride gas using an alcohol; and purifying the obtained crude succinylcholine chloride using water and alcohol.
Abstract: The present invention discloses a novel, cost-effective process for preparation of a benzimidazole carbamates compound. Specifically, it relates to the process for the preparation of anti-parasite bulk drug albendazole. The process comprises a) thiocyanating 2-nitroaniline of formula VI with ammonium thiocyanated in presence of a halogen to obtain 2-nitro-4-thiocyanoaniline of formula V; b)propylating 2-nitro-4-thiocyanoaniline of formula V with propylbromide in presence of n-propanol and a base in absence of a phase transfer catalyst to obtain 4-propylthio-2-nitroaniline of formula III; C) reducing the nitro group of 4-propylthio-2-nitroaniline prepared in step b) by reacting an aqueous alkali metal sulphide or an alkaline metal sulphide to obtain 4-propylthio-o-phenylenediamine of formula II; and d)condensing 4-propylthio-o-phenylenediamine of formula II with alkali or alkaline earth metal salt of methylcyano carbamate in presence of an acid to form Albendazole of formula I.
Abstract: The present invention discloses a method for preparing Triclabendazole comprising condensing N-(4,5-dichloro-2-ni-trophenyl)acetamide with 2,3-dichlorophenol to obtain 4-chloro-5(2,3-dichlorophenoxy)-2-nitrophenyl acetamide and it to obtain 4-chloro-5(2,3-dichlorophenoxy)-2-nitroaniline; reducing 4-chloro-5(2,3-dichlorophenoxy)-2-nitroaniline in presence of Raney nickel to obtain 4-chloro-5-(2,3-dichlorophenoxy)benzene-1,2-diamine of; cyclising 4-chloro-5-(2,3-dichlorophenoxy)benzene-1,2-diamine in presence of carbondisulfide to obtain 6-chloro-5-(2,3-dichlorophenoxy)-1H-benzimidazole-2-thiol; methylating 6-chloro-5-(2,3-dichlorophenoxy)-1H-benzimidazole-2-thiol using a methylating agent to obtain triclabendazole methanesulfonate salt; converting triclabendazole methanesulfonate salt to hydrochloride salt of Triclabendazole and hydrolysing it to obtain Triclabendazole.
