Mono-/dispirocyclotriphosphazenes with pendant arm(s) are robust, but they are less investigated inorganic ring systems. In this study, a series of mono (3 and 4)- and dispirocyclotriphosphazenes with 4-chloro-benzyl pendant arm(s) (13-16) was obtained from the Cl exchange reactions of hexachlorocyclotriphosphazene with sodium (N-benzyl)aminopropanoxides (1 and 2). When compound (3) reacted with excess pyrrolidine, morpholine, tetra-1,4-dioxa-8-azaspiro[4,5]decane (DASD) and piperidine, the fully substituted monospirocyclotriphosphazenes (7, 9, 10 and 12) occurred. But, the reactions of 4 with excess piperidine and morpholine produced the gem-piperidino (5)- and morpholino (6)-substituted monospirocyclotriphosphazenes, whereas the reactions of 4 with excess pyrrolidine and DASD gave the fully substituted monospirocyclotriphosphazenes (8) and (11). However, it should be indicated that these derivatives were obtained to be used for the investigation of their spectral, stereogenic and biological properties. The structures of 5, 7 and 14 were determined crystallographically. X-ray data of 5 and 14 displayed that both of compounds were chiral in solid state, and their absolute configurations were assigned as R and RR. Additionally, the antimicrobial activities of phosphazenes were investigated. Minimum inhibitory concentrations, minimal bacterial concentrations and minimum fungicidal concentrations of phosphazenes were determined. The interactions of phosphazenes with plasmid DNA were evaluated by agarose gel electrophoresis. The cytotoxic activities of compounds were studied against L929 fibroblast and DLD-1 colon cancer cells. In addition, density functional theory calculations of 5, 7 and 14 were reported, and their molecular docking studies with DNA, E. coli DNA gyrase and topoisomerase IV were presented.

This study contains synthesis, antimicrobial activity, density functional modelling and molecular docking studies of benzoxazole derivative: 2-(p-chloro-benzyl)-5-[3-(4-ethly-1-piperazynl) propionamido]-benzoxazole. The synthetic procedure of investigated compound is given in detail. The newly synthesized benzoxazole compound and standard drugs were evaluated for their antimicrobial activity against some Gram-positive, Gram-negative bacteria and fungus and their drug-resistant isolates. The benzoxazole compound has been characterized by using H-NMR, IR and MASS spectrometry and elemental analysis techniques. The molecular structure of the compound in the ground state has been modelling using density functional theory (DFT) with B3LYP/6-311++g(d,p) level. The molecular docking of 2-(p-chloro-benzyl)-5-[3-(4-ethly-1-piperazynl) propionamido]-benzoxazole with COVID-19 main protease has been also performed by using optimized geometry and the experimentally determined dimensional structure of the main protease (M-pro) of COVID-19.

An amino acid based and bidentate Schiff base, (E)-methyl 2-((2-oxonaphthalen-1(2H)-ylidene)methylamino)acetate (ligand), was synthesized from the reaction of glycine-methyl ester hydrochloride with 2-hydroxy-1-naphthaldehyde. Characterization of the ligand was carried out using theoretical quantum-mechanical calculations and experimental spectroscopic methods. The molecular structure of the compound was confirmed using X-ray single-crystal data, NMR, FTIR and UV-Visible spectroscopy, which were in good agreement with the structure predicted by the theoretical calculations using density functional theory (DFT). Antimicrobial activity of the ligand was investigated for its minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) to several bacteria and yeast cultures. UV-Visible spectroscopy studies also shown that the ligand can bind calf thymus DNA (CT-DNA) electrostatic binding. In addition, DNA cleavage study showed that the ligand cleaved DNA without the need for external agents. Energetically most favorable docked structures were obtained from the rigid molecular docking of the compound with DNA. The compound binds at the active site of the DNA proteins by weak non-covalent interactions. The colorimetric response of the ligand in DMSO to the addition of equivalent amount of anions (F, Br, I, CN, SCN, ClO, HSO, AcO, HPO, N and OH) was investigated and the ligand was shown to be sensitive to CN anion.
