Owing to the significant biological activities, quinazoline derivatives have drawn more and more attention in the synthesis and bioactivities research. This review summarizes the recent advances in the synthesis and biological activities investigations of quinazoline derivatives. According to the main method the authors adopted in their research design, those synthetic methods were divided into five main classifications, including Aza-reaction, Microwave-assisted reaction, Metal-mediated reaction, Ultrasound-promoted reaction and Phase-transfer catalysis reaction. The biological activities of the synthesized quinazoline derivatives also are discussed.
KeywordsQuinazoline derivative Synthesis Bioactivity
Quinazoline derivatives, which belong to the N-containing heterocyclic compounds, have caused universal concerns due to their widely and distinct biopharmaceutical activities. Researchers have already determined many therapeutic activities of quinazoline derivatives, including anti-cancer [1–4], anti-inflammation [5, 6], anti-bacterial [7–10], analgesia [5, 9], anti-virus , anti-cytotoxin , anti-spasm [9, 13], anti-tuberculosis , anti-oxidation , anti-malarial , anti-hypertension , anti-obesity , anti-psychotic , anti-diabetes , etc. Medicinal chemists synthesized a variety of quinazoline compounds with different biological activities by installing various active groups to the quinazoline moiety using developing synthetic methods. And the potential applications of the quinazoline derivatives in fields of biology, pesticides and medicine have also been explored. This review summarized the representative synthetic methods, either traditional or novel, and categorized them into five main classifications, including Aza-reaction, Microwave-assisted reaction, Metal-catalyzed reaction, Ultrasound-promoted reaction and Phase-transfer catalysis. Besides, three other kinds of reactions were also listed out, which were either designed as supplementary methods in most experiments or used as the main methods in some researches, including Oxidative cyclization, Reagent refluxing and One-pot synthesis. In addition, the bioactivity researches of quinazoline derivatives were also discussed in order to provide valuable reference for the future synthesis and biological investigation of these compounds.
Compared to traditional heating methods, microwave heating could expand reaction range as well as shorten the reaction time from a few days or hours to a few minutes. Thus, when applied in fields of organic synthesis, pharmaceutical chemistry and high-throughput chemistry, microwave heating shows greater advantage than traditional heating methods [28–31].
Hazarkhani et al. adopted isatoic anhydride and 2-aminobenzimi-dazole as the raw materials, DMAC as solvent in their starting research and got 2-amino-N-(1-H -benzimidazol-2-yl) benzamide under microwave irradiation . Then they discovered that this novel amide has three nucleophilic sites to condense with different electrophilic compounds, which made it applicable for the synthesis of numerous quinazolinone based targets, and was applied in the following synthesis.
Palladium-catalyzed coupling reaction, which plays a vital role in the pharmaceutical industry, is widely applied in chemical synthesis industry and laboratories as an efficient method for the formation of C-C and C-heteroatom bond.
In critical synthesis, ultrasonic assistance is needed to meet the high requirements for temperature and pressure. For instance, in Bischler cyclization [44–46], the most traditional synthetic methods for quinazoline derivatives, high temperature (above 120°C) and high pressure are needed for at least 5 h in saturated ammonia alcohol solution. Various synthesis applying this method contains the passage of ammonia through a mixed melt of the amino compound and sodium acetate at a temperature higher than 160°C , in which ultrasonic promotion is demanded.
Phase-transfer catalysis (PTC) is considered to be one of the promising methods in organic synthesis of specialty chemicals. The previous 20 years sees a steady increment in articles and patents dealing with PTC topics and their applications. Currently, rather than be simply used in replacement reactions, PTC is widely applied in polymer chemistry, heterocyclic chemistry, organometallic synthesis, agrochemicals, dyes, flavors, spices, and pharmaceutical technology [49–51].
Apart from the five synthetic methods listed above, several other methods could also be used as main researching methods in some situation, while most of the time, they were set as auxiliary methods or necessary methods in experimental design. Here, several examples of such methods were listed.
A three-step synthesis of mono- and bis-indolo[1,2-c]quinazolines was reported by Rohini et al. in 2010 . In this research, the key indole precursor A was got from Fischer indole cyclization. And the corresponding intermediate mono and bis-2-(o-arylidineaminophenyl)indole, obtained from indole precursor A, then was put on oxidative cyclization with powdered KMnO4 in acetone to afford the desired products mono and bis-indolo[1,2-c]quinazoline.
In 2009, they also reported another synthesis of mono- and bis-6-arylbenzimidazo[1,2-c]quinazolines from corresponding 2-O-arylideneaminophenylbenzimidazoles by oxidative cyclization .
Chandrika et al. synthesized desired products from the intermediate obtained from reagent refluxing . In the synthesis of tri-substituted products triazolo[4,3-a]-quinazolin-7-ones by Pandey et al., the corresponding Schiff base was obtained from refluxing of key intermediate with isatin in methanol, which then cyclodehydrated to the products in concentrated sulfuric acid. Aside from these two researches, in some other synthetic researches [5, 34, 56], the intermediates or products were also obtained from refluxing of raw materials or intermediates in solvent.
In order to make the synthetic methods more convenient, many researchers gradually tend to integrate one-pot synthesis into their synthesis investigations. Such as microwave-assisted synthesis reported by Tu et al., Copper-catalyzed domino synthesis reported by Jiang et al., Palladium-catalyzed reaction reported by McGowan et al. and Zinc-reduced synthesis reported by Shi et al.. All of these reported methods were combined with one-pot synthesis.
4-position substituted quinazoline compounds
Melanin-concentrating hormone receptor 1 antagonists
Epidermal growth factor receptor tyrosine kinase inhibitors
Researches suggest that EGFR tyrosine kinase inhibiting quinazoline derivatives possess significant anti-cancer activity. 4-Anilinoquinazoline showed a potent and highly selective inhibition for EGFR tyrosine kinase through ATP-competitive binding mechanism [60–66]. And quinazoline derivatives with aliphatic branch at 4-position of quinazoline core have moderate inhibitory activity for cyclin-dependent kinase .
Chandregowda et al. synthesized novel 4-anilinoquinazolines and evaluated their anti-cancer activity . The new results indicated that quinazoline derivatives with alkyl-thiobenzothiazole side chain in 6-position and electron withdrawing group substituted in 4-aniline contain better biological activities.
Lately, synthesis and activity research on 4-anilinoquinazolines as well as extended researches on inhibitory activity of anilinoquinazolines for EGFR are reported continuously .For example, Hu et al. designed and synthesized several crown ether fused anilinoquinazoline analogues, combined with EGFR kinase in vitro test and EGFR mediated intracellular phosphorylation test . IC50 values of these compounds range from 2 nM to 150 nM. The results indicated that substituent of ethynyl at meta-position or halogen on the 7-anilino were desirable for high potency. And among the products, compound 76 (Figure 2) expressed high resistance for EGFR and potent selectivity for kinases Abl and Arg, and showed good pharmacokinetic properties in preclinical evaluation. Moreover, it inhibited the growth of many human solid tumor xenografts in a dose-dependent way(range 50–100 mg/kg).
Acrolein amine quinazolines substituted on the 6-position could irreversibly bind with intracellular ATP binding domain of EGFR [70, 71]. 6-Substituted-4-anilino quinazolines with irreversible binding property with EGFR were synthesized by Vasdev et al., starting from [18 F]fluoroanilines .
There are some other researches aiming at replacing 4-anilino with other substituents [72–74], such as thiosemicarbazide, which possesses a variety of biological profiles, including anti-cancer, anti-fungi, anti-bacterial, anti-inflammation and anti-virus. Thus it acts as an efficient pharmacophore in drug design. In order to find novel quinazoline compounds with same enzyme sites as 4-anilinoquinazoline, a series of 4-thiosemicarbazide quinazolines were synthesized by He et al., and their anti-cancer activities were estimated using 5 human cancer cell lines with 5-FU as reference. Preliminary results showed that some produced compounds exhibited better inhibitory activity against these 5 human cancer cell lines than 5-FU. Structure-activity relationship results indicated that compounds with unsubstituted quinazoline ring and benzene ring or chloro/fluoro substituted benzene ring were proved to have higher anti-cancer activity.
Platelet-derived growth factor receptor phosphorylation inhibitors
Cell proliferation induced by unusual platelet-derived growth factor receptor (PDGFR) will lead to a variety of proliferative diseases such as atherosclerosis, restenosis following PTCA, glomerulonephritis, glomerulosclerosis, liver cirrhosis, pulmonary fibrosis, and cancer [76–86]. PDGFR phosphorylation inhibitors are potential treatments for these proliferative diseases .
Matsuno et al. obtained a series of compounds containing 4-piperazinyl substituted quinazoline core from screening of PDGFR phosphorylation inhibitors . KN1022 was adopted as the prototype inhibitor in structure-activity relationship analysis, and the 4-nitrobenzene urea moiety was studied, which indicated that compounds with substitution on 4-position of benzene ring worked best, but activity would be reduced with more than two substituents on benzene ring. In their research, several KN1022 (77) (Figure 2) derivatives with favorable activity were obtained, including 4-(4-methylphenoxy)phenyl,4-tert-butylphenyl and 4-phenoxyphenyl. In vivo assays were conducted by oral administration of these three compounds (30 mg/kg, twice daily) to SD rats. 4-chlorophenyl (78), 4-bromophenyl (79), and 4-isopropoxyphenyl (80) (Figure 2) analogues were then proved to have obvious inhibitory activity against neointima formation in the carotid artery of the balloon catheter de-endothelialized vessel in the rats.
Li et al. synthesized and biologically evaluated a series of 4-quinazoline oxime ether compounds in purpose of discovering novel acaricides . Compounds obtained in this research were proved to have different degrees of suppression for phytovirus TMV, among which compound 81 (Figure 2) showed potent in vivo and in vitro activity against TMV, 65% and 61% respectively. What’s more, bioassays showed that compound 81 also exhibited favorable inhibitory activities against CMV,PVX and PVY after virus vaccination.
Heterocyclic quinazoline derivatives
Acylhydrazone is a pharmacophore armed with favorable activity of antibiosis, anticancer and antivirus. Panneerselvam et al. synthesized several acylhydrazone quinazolines via condensation reaction of 3-amino-6, 8-dibromo-2-phenyl-quinazolin-4(3H)-ones and aromatic aldehyde . Among which, the representative compound 85 (Figure 3) showed the most significant activity against S. aureus, S. epidermidi, M. luteus, B. cereus, E. coli, P. aeruginosa, K. pneumoniae, A. niger and A. fumigatus.
Triazole quinazolines aroused attention for their various bioactivities. Baba et al. conducted anti-inflammatory research on quinazoline derivatives . Justicidins, the potent bone resorption inhibitors, were adopted as lead compounds, and quinazoline derivative 86 was discovered to show favorable anti-inflammatory effect on rats with adjuvant arthritis. Then the structure of compound 86 was modified by adding heteroaryl moiety on the alkyl side chain at 2-position of the skeleton, result of which showed that installation of an imidazole or a triazole moiety on the 2-alkyl side chain could increase the anti-inflammatory. Then, compound 86 with ED50 of 2.6 mg/kg/day was selected as candidate for further research, which showed that the inhibitory ability against Th1 cytokine production of 87 was considered to be its significant immune regulating function (Figure 3).Fifteen [1,2,4] triazole [4,3-c] quinazoline derivates were synthesized and evaluated for their antimicrobial activity by Jantova et al., among which, compound 88 (Figure 3) was found with the highest potency against Bacillus subtilis, Staphylococcus aureus, Candida tropicalis and Rick-ettsia nigricans.Nasr et al. evaluated the antimicrobial activity of novel 1,2,4-triazolo[4,3-c]-quinazoline analogues against typical gram-positive bacterium and Gram-negative bacterium . Among these analogues, tetracyclic compound 89 showed higher activity than the reference drug of ciprofloxacin (Figure 3).Besides, 2-thio-[1,2,4]triazolo[1,5-c]quinazolinones with C-5 substituted by sulfo-alkyl groups were discovered with moderate antimicrobial activity [91–93]. Based on the former researches, Antipenko et al. synthesized novel 2-thio-[1,2,4]triazolo[1,5-c]quinazoline derivatives and investigated their bioactivities . Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, As-pergillus niger, Mycobacterium luteum, Candida albicans and Candida tenuis were applied in the antimicrobial test, which showed that compounds 90 and 91 exhibited obvious suppression for Candida albicans, which was validated by further bioluminescence inhibition test and related to their lipophilicity (Figure 3).Pandey et al. also conducted antimicrobial researches on novel quinazolinones fused with [1,2,4]-triazole, [1,2,4]-triazine and [1,2,4,5]-tetrazine rings . Among the quinazolinones derivates, compounds 92, 93 and 94 (Figure 3) showed excellent activities against Escherichia coli, pseudomonas aeruginosa, streptococcus pneumoniae, and bacillus subtilis.
Other quinazoline analogues
Indole moiety involved heterocycles are proved to have a wide variety of pharmaceutical and medical profiles, such as anti-inflammation, anti-microbial, anti-cancer, anti-malarial, etc. [100–106]. Rohini et al. conducted anti-microbial study on the newly produced 6-substituted indolo[1,2-c] quinazolines applying gram-positive bacterium (Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis and Streptococcus pyogenes), gram-negative bacterium (Salmonella typhimurium, Escherichia coli and Klebsiella pneumonia), and pathogenic fungus (Aspergillus niger, Candida albicans and Trichoderma viridae) as the test bacterium, and standard drug ampicillin and ketoconazole as reference, which indicated that some of the synthesized compounds showed favorable inhibition against the tested microorganism .
Chandrika et al. synthesized and biologically evaluated various 2,4,6-trisubstituted quinazoline derivatives. The core of compound 98 (Figure 4) showed antimicrobial activities against gram-positive bacterium and gram-negative bacterium. In addition, it could be drawn from the SAR that decylamine group substituted at C-4 is beneficial to the activity while iodo-group at C-6 is detrimental to activity .
Traditional synthetic methods for quinazoline derivatives, still in general use, including Aza-synthetic method, refluxing, oxidative cyclization, are fundamental methods for the synthesis of this important heterocyclic compounds. It could be seen from the examples compiled above that some novel synthetic methods are in constant development, and different methods are adopted in the synthesis of different quinazoline analogues, such as phase-transfer synthesis, ultrasound-promoted synthesis, etc. The gradually improved synthetic methods better the synthetic research on quinazoline derivatives with a tendency of faster, more diverse and more convenient. Then, for another, it is known that substituents at different positions affect the activity differently. For instance, quinazoline derivatives with imidazole substituted at the 2-position of side chain own potent anti-inflammatory function; and quinazoline derivatives with amine or substituted amine on 4-position and either halogens or electron rich substituent groups on 6-position could promote the anti-cancer and anti-microbial activities [7, 12], etc. By careful observation of the recent researches, 2-, 4- and 6-position substituted quinazoline analogs remain majority among the products. However, with the deepening and development of researches, substituent groups at other positions are also achieved and studied increasingly, such as the construction of N-heterocyclic quinazolines by introduction of active groups into 3-position of quinazoline core. It is worth mentioning that N-heterocyclic quinazolines with more rigid and complicated structure were synthesized successively, some of which showed excellent antimicrobial properties. In addition, it could be drawn from the research progress above that enhancement of activity by splicing method of installing various active groups is and will still be the main method for drug design and reconstruction of quinazoline derivatives.
