Volume 2, Issue 1, pp. 1-81, Serial No. 2 , Winter 2014, , Pages 48-55

Abstract
  A general, simple, practical and convenient method has been described for the synthesis of anesthetic drug thiopental using thiourea in the presence of sodium ethoxide. Anesthetic drug of thiopental was prepared in two stages; during the first stage, the alkylation of mthyl cyanoacetate was performed ...  Read More

Volume 2, Issue 1, pp. 1-81, Serial No. 2 , Winter 2014, , Pages 39-47

Abstract
  A general, mild and efficient protocol has been developed for the synthesis of esters and thioesters. The process has been taking place using tetra n-butylammonium iodide (TBAI) as a phase-transfer catalyst and in the presence of potassium carbonate (K2CO3). A wide range of esters and thioesters was ...  Read More
