Synthesis of Schiff Bases Derivatives from Benzene Diamine Containing Acridine Moiety


One side of (o, m and p) benzene diamine reacted with aromatic aldehyde to give Schiff bases (Ia-d) or (IIa-d) and (IIIa-d) respectively. The second amine group of the synthesized Schiff bases (Ia-d or IIa-d and IIIa-d) was reacted with substituted-9-chloroacridine to give the final compounds namely N-(Substituted benzylidene )-N'-(Substituted acridine -9-yl) (1,2 or 1,3 and 1,4) benzene diamine (V,VI,VII).The reaction progress was followed by thin layer chromatography (TLC), and Rf values were recorded. I.R. Spectral data for all the synthesized derivatives were reported. The U.V-Vis., and the 1HNMR(300and 400MHz) were recorded for some derivatives to support the structure of the synthesized compounds.
