  Novel 2-phenyl-1H-indole-5-sulphadimidine has been synthesized by the interaction of sulphadimidine and
phenacyl halide. The newly synthesized compound was screened for anti-tubercular activity.

Keywords: Synthesis, Anti-tubercular activity, sulphadimidine, Indole, 2-phenyl-1H-indole-5-sulphadimidine.

1. Introduction

The indole nucleus are important substructures found in numerous natural or synthetic alkaloids [1,2]. The diversity
of the structure encountered, as well as their biological and pharmaceutical relevance, have motivated research
aimed at development of new economical, efficient and selective synthetic, particularly for the synthesis of
substituted indole rings [4,5]. A large number of indoles and their derivatives are reported to possess a broad
spectrum of biological activities [5-15]. Thus, these were found to be useful especially in the treatment of fungal and
bacterial diseases. Indoles and their derivatives exhibited anti-inflammatory [5,6], antitumor [7], antibacterial [6,8],
antiamoebic [9], antifungal [10,13], anti-HIV [11], and anticancer [12] activities. These properties of indole and
their derivatives prompted us to synthesize this novel compound.

2. Methodology

2.1 Material
The sulphadimidine, α-halo acyl benzene, and reference compound were purchased from Aldrich Chemicals.
Ethanol, glacial acetic acid and all other reagents were purchased from S. D. Fine Chem. TLC was performed on
pre-coated plastic sheets of silica gel G/UV-254 of 0.2 mm thickness (Macherey-Nagel, Germany).

 2.2 General
 Melting points of the 2-phenyl-1H-indole-5-sulphadimidine was determined using an open-ended capillary tube
 method and are uncorrected. The purity of the synthesized compound was checked by TLC. A FT-IR spectrum was
 recorded on a Perkin-Elmer 1605 series FT-IR in a KBr disc. 1H NMR spectra were recorded at 300 MHz on a
 Bruker FT-NMR spectrophotometer using TMS as internal standard.

2.3 Preparation of 2-phenyl-1H-indole-5-sulphadimidine
A mixture sulphadimidine and phenacyl halide in 2:1 ratio was dissolved in glacial acetic acid and refluxed on water
bath for half an hour, the phenacylsulphadimidine underwent rapid cyclization to form 2-phenyl-1H-indole-5-
sulphadimidine and a trace of sulpadimidinium halide. On cooling, a crystalline solid compound was obtained and it

3. Results and Discussion

The synthesized 2-phynel-1H-Indole-5-Sulphadimidine was screened for anti-tubercular activity [14] against
Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv using employing REMA (Resazurin microtitre assay) method [15]. Anti-
tubercular screening: 2-phenyl-1H-indole-5-sulphadimidine was tested at concentration 1.25, 2.5, 3.75, 5.0, 6.25,
7.5, 8.75 and 10.0 μg/ml. The antituberculosis tests indicated that the title compound showed the highest inhibition
(42%) against Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv at a concentration of 6.25 μg/ml.

4. Conclusion

We have presented a synthesis of novel 2-phynel-1H-Indole-5-Sulphadimidine for the anti-tubercular activity. It
may be considered promising for the development of new antituberculosis agent.
