Thionylchloride Catalyzed Aldol Condensation: Synthesis, Spectral Correlation and Antibacterial Activities of some 3,5-Dichloro-2-Hydroxyphenyl Chalcones

Full Text PDF


A series of substituted styryl 3,5-dichloro-2-hydroxyphenyl ketones [1-(3,5-dichloro-2-hydroxy)-3-phenylprop-2-en-1-one] were synthesized using thionyl chloride assisted Crossed-Aldol reaction. The yields of chalcones were more than 80%. The synthesized chalcones were characterized by analytical and spectroscopic data. From the spectroscopic data the group frequencies were correlated with Hammett substituent constants, F and R parameters. From the results of statistical analysis the effect of substituents were discussed. The antibacterial activities of these chalcones have been evaluated using Bauer-Kirby method.
