A novel and efficient diversity-oriented synthetic approach was employed to access the benzo[d]oxazol-5-yl-1H-benzo[d]imidazole on ionic liquid support, which helps to absorb microwave irradiation. In this paper, we successfully coupled 4-hydroxy-3-nitrobenzoic acid onto ionic liquid-immobilized o-phenylenediamine, which subsequently underwent an acid mediated, ring closure reaction leading to benzimidazole derivatives. After hydrogenation of the nitro group to an amine, the resulting ionic liquid conjugate was reacted with 1,1-thiocarbonyldiimidazols to yield an ionic liquid tagged-benzoxazol. Final skeletal diversity of the present scaffold was further achieved by S-alkylation with alkyl and aryl bromides. The benzo[d]oxazol-5-yl-1H-benzo[d]imidazole was finally cleaved smoothly from the ionic liquid support with sodium methoxide in methanol under microwave irradiation. This methodology has provided access to a small, diverse library by straightforward and simple operations and could be applied readily ...

The two enantiomers of 2-(2-hydroxybiphenyl-4-yl)propanoic acid ((S)- and (R)-BPOH) have been selected as probes for human serum albumin (HSA). Photophysical characterization in the absence of protein led to emission maxima, singlet energies, quantum yields, and fluorescence lifetime values ... more
The photodissociation of H2O in its B band is a prototype for nonadiabatic reaction dynamics. In addition to dissociation via the adiabatic pathway to the OH(Ã2Σ+) + H fragments, it also produces the OH(X̃2Π) + H fragments through two nonadiabatic pathways: the B̃ → X̃ transition via two co ... more
Due to the widespread occurrence in the environment and potential risk toward organisms of fluoroquinolones (FQs), it is of importance to develop high efficient methods for assessing their occurrence and environmental risk. A monoclonal antibody (Mab) with broad cross-reactivity to FQs was ... more
