Abstract

Novel series of s-triazine-Schiff base derivatives were synthesized employing ultrasonic irradiation and characterized by NMR (H-1 and C-13), FT-IR, and elemental analysis. The use of ultrasonic irradiation has allowed the preparation of the target products with better yields in shorter reaction time and excellent purities compared to the conventional heating. X-ray single crystal diffraction experiments verified the molecular structure of four from the new prepared s-triaizne-Schiff base derivatives. The molecular structures of the studied compounds are computerized using DFT/B3LYP method. The effects of sub-stituent at the triazine and phenyl ring on the electronic and spectroscopic properties of the studied compounds were also investigated. The natural atomic charges showed that pipridino-s-triazine derivatives are richer in electrons than those having morpholino derivatives. The anti-proliferative effects for the prepared compounds were tested against three different cancer cell lines. (C) 2016 Elsevier B.V. All rights reserved.
