In the present study, a series of novel Schiff bases of isatin [5a-5l] were synthesized by condensation of imesatin with different aromatic aldehydes. The imesatins were synthesized by the reaction of isatin with p-phenylenediamine. The chemical structures of the synthesized compounds were confirmed by means of Infrared (IR), Mass spectroscopy, and Elemental analysis. These compounds were screened for the analgesic activity by the tail-immersion method at a dose of 200 mg/kg body weight. Among the tested compounds 3-(4-(4-hydroxy-3-methoxylbenzylideneamino) phenylimino) indoline-2-one (5i) exhibited better analgesic activity when compared to standard pentazocine. From the above-mentioned results it may be concluded that compounds containing electron-donating groups exhibit better analgesic activity than the electron-withdrawing groups.

   Introduction Top

Isatin (indole-2, 3-dione) is an endogenous compound, widely distributed in mammalian tissues and body fluids. [1] In the brain the highest levels have been found in the hippocampus [2] and an immunocytochemical staining revealed its specific localization within particular cells. In vivo isatin administration causes a range of dose-dependent behavioral effects, [3] including angiogenesis and increased water retention. In vitro, isatin is a potent inhibitor of both atrial natriureticpeptide (ANP)-stimulated, membrane-bound guanylate cyclase and nitric oxide-stimulated soluble guanylate cyclase [4] It is an inhibitor of monoamine oxidase B (IC 50 3-8 lM) and of atrial natriuretic peptide receptor binding (0.4 lM) at levels that may be in the physiological range. [5] Isatin is well known as a pharmacological agent having a range of action in the brain and it is protective against certain types of infections. Isatin derivatives are reported to show other biological activities, such as, anti-bacterial, [6],[7],[8] anti-fungal, [9],[10],[11] anti-viral, [12],[13],[14] anti-HIV, [15],16],[17] anti-protozoal, [18],[19] muscle relaxant, [20] anti-allergic, [21] and anti-inflammatory [22] activities. Schiff bases are used as substrates in the preparation of a number of biologically active compounds. Moreover, Schiff bases derived from various heterocycles have been reported to possess anti-fungal, [23] anti-cancer, [24] cytotoxic, [25] and anti-convulsant activities. [26] The chemistry of isatin and its derivatives is particularly interesting because of their potential application in medicinal chemistry. Schiff bases of isatin derivatives have been reported to demonstrate a variety of biological activities, such as, anti-inflammatory, [27] anti-convulsant, [28] anti-HIV, [29] anti-bacterial, [30] anti-fungal, [31] and anti-depressant [32] activities. These observations have led to the conception that a series of some different novel Schiff bases of isatin were synthesized using different aromatic aldehydes by condensation with imesatin and their chemical structures were confirmed by IR, 1 H-NMR, 13 C-NMR, Mass spectroscopy, and Elemental analysis. These compounds were screened for their analgesic properties. The results of such studies are discussed in this article.

   Materials and Methods Top

The melting points were taken with the help of an open capillary tube and were uncorrected. The IR spectra of the compounds were recorded on ABB Bomem FT-IR spectrometer MB 104 with KBr pellets. The 1 H (400 MHz) and 13 C-NMR (400 MHz) spectra were recorded on a Bruker 400 NMR spectrometer (with TMS for 1 H and DMSO-d 6 for 13 C as internal references). Mass spectroscopy was recorded on Shimadzu GC MS QP 5000. Microanalyses were obtained with an elemental analyses system GmbH VarioEL V300 element analyzer. The purity of the compounds was checked by TLC on pre-coated SiO 2 gel (HF 254 , 200 mesh) aluminium plates (E-Merck) using ethyl acetate : n-hexane (2 : 3) and visualized in a UV chamber. IR, 1 H-NMR, 13 C-NMR, mass spectroscopy, and elemental analysis were consistent with the assigned structures.

General Method of Synthesis

In the present study, aniline 1 is treated with chloral hydrate to form isonitrosoacetanilide 2. Then this intermediate undergoes cyclization with sulfuric acid to form isatin 3, [33] which is further reacted with p-phenylenediamine, resulting in the formation of imesatin 4. Compound 4 is subjected to reaction with various aromatic aldehydes in the presence of ethanol as a solvent to form Schiff bases (5a-5f, [Figure 1]). All the synthesized compounds are soluble in dimethylformamide.

Equimolar quantities of (0.01 mol) isatin and p-phenylenediamine were dissolved in a sufficient quantity of methanol (30 mL) in the presence of acetic acid and refluxed for one hour, and then kept for two hours at room temperature (37 0 C). The product that separated out was filtered, dried in a vacuum, and recrystallized from absolute ethanol. Equimolar quantities (0.01 mol) of imesatin 4 and various aromatic aldehydes were dissolved in ethanol and refluxed for eight hours. After standing for one-to-two days at room temperature, the product of different substituted derivatives of isatin (5a-5f) separated out as a mixture of E and Z isomers, which was filtered, dried, and recrystallized from absolute ethanol. In the present study a novel series of various three-substituted isatin compounds were synthesized. The target compounds 5a-5f were synthesized according to [Figure 1]. Aniline and chloral hydrate were used as starting materials to produce the Schiff bases of substituted isatin via the intermediate imesatin (4) through a condensation reaction.

The condensation proceeds selectively on the carbonyl group in position 3 of the isatin ring. Reactions of imesatin with different aromatic aldehydes have been carried out in ethanol in the presence of glacial acetic acid, and a variety of Schiff base derivatives have been isolated according to the synthetic [Figure 1]. The method used for the preparation and isolation of the compounds has given materials of good purity, as evidenced by their spectral analyses and thin layer chromatography. The Schiff base derivatives are found to be soluble in chloroform, dimethyl sulfoxide, and dimethylformamide.

Pharmacological Screening


The animals used in the present study were Swiss albino mice weighing 20 - 25 gm, which were procured from the C. L. Baid Metha College of Pharmacy, Chennai, India. The animals were maintained in colony cages at 25±2 o C, with relative humidity of 45 - 55%, under 12 hours light and dark cycle, and were fed with the standard animal feed and water ad libitum. The animals were maintained under standard conditions in an animal house approved by the committee for the purpose of control and supervision of experiments on animals (CPCSEA). The Institutional Animal Ethics Committee approved the experimental protocol. All the animals were acclimatized for a week before use.

Acute Toxicity Studies

The Acute toxicity test was performed for the entire synthesized compound, to ascertain the LD 50 values as per OECD guidelines. [34] The experimental dose was selected between the minimum effective dose and maximal non-lethal dose.

Analgesic Activity (Tail Immersion Method in Mice)

The analgesic activity [35] was determined by the tail-immersion method. Swiss mice (n = 6) of either sex, selected by the random sampling technique, were used for the study. Pentazocine at a dose of 10 mg/kg (i.p.) was administered as a standard drug for comparison, to check the centrally acting analgesic activity of the synthesized compounds. Pentazocine would produce excellent centrally acting analgesic action compared to other analgesic standards. Moreover, pentazocine is a synthetically prepared compound and known to act as an opioid-mixed agonist and antagonist. [36] The test compounds at 200 mg/kg dose level were administered orally. The animals were held in position by a suitable restrainer with the tail extending out and the tail (up to 5 cm) was taken, dipped in a beaker of water maintained at 55±0.5oC. The time in seconds taken to withdraw the tail clearly out of water was taken as the reaction time. The first reading (0 minute) was taken immediately after the administration of the test compound and subsequent the reaction time was recorded at 30, 60, 120, and 180 minutes after the administration of the compounds. A cut-off point of 15 seconds was observed to prevent tail damage. The percentage analgesic activity was calculated using the following formula, and the results are presented in [Table 1].

Pharmacological Screening

The synthesized compounds were evaluated for analgesic activity by the tail-immersion method. The activity was studied at 200 mg/kg b.w. (p.o) and their effects were measured at time intervals of 30, 60, 120, and 180 minutes. Most of the synthesized compounds showed significant analgesic activity. The highest analgesic activity was observed at 120 mintes for all the compounds. When compared with the standard drug (Pentazocine, 10 mg/kg, i.p), compounds bearing the electron donating hydroxyl and tri-methoxy substituent such as 3-(4-(4-hydroxy-3-methoxylbenzylidene amino) phenylimino) indoline-2-one [5i] and 3-(4-(3, 4, 5,-trimethoxy benzylideneamino) phenylimino) indoline-2-one [5h], exhibited comparable analgesic activity at 200 mg/kg b.w. Compounds 3-(4-(4-dimethylaminobenzylideneamino) phenylimino) indoline-2-one [5k] and 3-(4-(4-methoxybenzylideneamino) phenylimino) indoline-2-one [5d] exhibited moderate analgesic activity. Among the compounds synthesized, the compound-bearing, electron-withdrawing, nitro-substituent, such as 3-(4-(4-nitrobenzylideneamino) phenylimino) indoline-2-one [5e] exhibited the lowest analgesic activity. From the above-mentioned results it may be concluded that compounds containing the electron-donating groups exhibit better analgesic activity than the electron-withdrawing groups.

   Conclusion Top

It is known that the heterocyclic compounds containing both Schiff base and isatin rings have diverse pharmacological properties. [27],[28],[29],[30],[31],[32] A general and convenient method was established for the synthesis of new heterocyclic compounds of isatin containing Schiff bases. Thus 12 new Schiff base derivatives having unsubstituted, substituted with electron-donating and electron-withdrawing groups were synthesized in good yield. The analgesic activity results showed that Schiff bases bearing electron-donating substituents produced potent results, and therefore, might serve as lead molecules to obtain more clinically useful, novel entities in the future.
