Chemistry and Pharmacology
The hitherto unreported compounds of general structure 3,3′-(alkanediyl)bis-(2,2,2-triaryl-1-oxa-2-stiba-3-azabenzo[d]cyclohex-5-ene) have been synthesized in 48-56% yields by the cyclization of the tetrasodium salt of N,N′-bis(2-hydroxybenzyl)-1,2-diaminoethane(II) or of N,N′-bis(2-hydroxybenzyl)-1,3-diaminopropane(II*) with R3SbBr2 (R = phenyl, p-tolyl, or mesityl). The tetrasodium salts were prepared by the reactions of the corresponding amines with sodium hydride. The amines (II and II*), in turn, were obtained by the sodium borohydride reduction of N,N′-bis(salicylidene)-1,2-diaminoethane and N,N′-bis-(salicylidene)-1,3,-diaminopropane, respectively. The heterocyclic compounds are air stable and moisture insensitive. These compounds have been characterized by elemental analyses, molecular weight determinations, and by IR, far IR, 1H, and 13C NMR spectral studies. © 1996 John Wiley & Sons, Inc.
