Novel 3-phenyl/pyridinyl-trans-2-(aryl/heteryl)vinyl-3H-quinazolin-4-ones 3a,b, 4a, 5a, 7a and their 6,7-difluoro derivatives 3c,d, 4b, 5b, 7b have been obtained by condensation of the correspondent 2-methylquinazolin-4-ones 1, 6 with aromatic (heterocyclic) aldehydes in the presence of ZnCl2 (AcONa) or by the reaction of 2-methyl-3,1-benzoxazin-4- ones 2 with the Shiff bases. Effects of aryl(heteryl) substituents on photophysical properties of (aryl/heteryl) quinazolinylethenes have been studied.

1. Introduction

The creation of luminescent molecules that contain the styryl moiety is an active field of research in organic chemistry [1,2]. Substitution of the phenyl fragment in stilbenes with a heterocyclic unit (for instance, pyridine) has been established to give a significant effect on their photophysical and photochemical properties, because of involvement of the (nπ*) electronic state [3]. It is known that fluorescent properties of conjugated systems can be changed by varying the structure of stilbenes and their analogues, and this approach proved to be useful to develop new optical materials and fluorescent markers for studying biomolecules [2]. In particular, fluorescent indicators can be used in hormonal therapy of breast cancer to monitor the distribution of estrogen receptors in tumor cells [4]. Photophysical properties of some styryl substituted azines have been intensively studied, and the data on luminescent properties of trans-2-styrylpyridazin- 3(2H)-ones [5], 3-(2-arylvinyl)-pyridazines [6] and (arylvinyl) pyrimidines [7] are available. As for benzodiazines, photophysical behavior of 2-styryl-3H-quinazolin- 4-ones, aza-analogues of styrylquinolines, have been reported [8], and these compounds can be regarded as candidates for OLED (organic light emitted diodes).

Taking into account the growing interest to modification the core of conjugated molecules in order to estimate structural effects on the LED properties [9], we wish to report the synthesis and photophysical behavior study of 3-phenyl-trans-2-styryl-substituted 3H-quinazolin-4-ones and their analogs in current work. Considering an opportunity to improve the electronic conductivity by incorporating of fluorine atoms into styryl derivatives Ph-CH= CH-C6H4-CH=CH-Ph [10,11], a number of novel fluorinated 3-phenyl-trans-2-styryl-3H-quinazolin-4-ones have been obtained.

2. Results and Discussion

Trans-2-(Arylvinyl)-3Н-3-phenylquinazolin-4-ones 3b,d have been synthesized by condensation of 2-methylquinazolinones 1a,b with p-nitrobenzaldehyde on heating in tetrahydrofuran in the presence of ZnCl2 and acetic anhydride for 6 hours in 59% - 71% yields (Scheme 1). The synthesis of 3a,c has been performed by refluxing 2- methyl-3,1-benzoxazinones 2a,b with the Shiff base 4-MeOC6H4-CH=N-Ph and sodium acetate in acetic acid for 6 hours in 50% - 75% yields (Scheme 1) [12]. The СН=СН resonance signals in 1H NMR spectra of 3a-d proved to appear as doublets at 6.11 - 6.49 and 7.86 - 7.96 ppm with 3J 15.4 - 15.6 Hz, thus indicating at transconfiguration of this fragment.

X-Ray crystallography analysis has been performed to establish the structure of quinazolinone 3b. Summary on

the data collection and refinement parameters are presented in Table 1, while chemical bond distances and angles are given in Table 2. The molecular structure of 3b, based on the X-ray crystallography data, is shown in Figure 1. According to the X-ray data obtained, the compound is crystallized in the chiral space group of the orthorhombic crystal system. The molecule has trans-configuration of the alkenyl fragment. Nitrophenyl and quinazolinyl parts are located approximately in the plane of C=C bond, and C-C bond distances for this fragment are typical for conjugated systems (see Table 2). The plane of the phenyl substituent in quinazoline forms a dihedral angle 74.3˚ relative to the heterocyclic ring. In the molecular packing short contacts C=O…H-CAr type (O(3)… H(21A) 2.448 Å, O(3)…C(21) 3.167 Å, symm. op. 1/2 − x, 2 − y, −1/2 + z) are observed. Summary on the data collection and refinement parameters are presented in Table 1, while chemical bond distances and angles are given in Table 2. The molecular structure of 3b, based on the X-ray crystallography data, is shown in Figure 1.

We have fulfilled the structural modification of compounds 3 by incorporating of the second heterocyclic unit instead of the aryl substituent. It is known that replacement of the aryl fragment with the p-excessive thiophene ring leads to a large red-shift in both absorbtion and emission spectra [13-15]. Thiophene has a lower resonance energy compared to that of benzene, and a better coplanar conformation relative to polyenes [16,17]. On the other hand, some new materials have recently been developed, in which their molecules can absorb two photons simultaneously, thus leading to two-photons excited fluorescence (TPEF). Such molecules are widely used for two-photons excited up-converted laser, two-photons fluorescence microscopy, three-dimensional optical memory, and photodynamic therapy. The systems with strong TPEF are p-conjugated molecules based on polyvinyl or styryl derivatives. Compounds bearing the thiophene ring as electron-donating fragment may have even better TPEF characteristics [18]. In order to compare eff

ects of substituents of different electronic nature we have selected 3-phenyl-trans-2-(heteryl)vinyl-3-quinazolin-4- ones 4 and 5 bearing pyridin-2-yl and 2-thienyl fragments.

3-Phenyl-trans-2-[2-(pyridin-2-yl)vinyl]-3Н-quinazolin-4-one 4a and the difluoro analog 4b have been obtained by condensation of 2-methylquinazolinones 1a,b with pyridin-2-carbaldehyde on heating in tetrahydrofuran in the presence of ZnCl2 and acetic anhydride for 5 hours in 61% - 64% yields (Scheme 2). The synthesis of unknown earlier 2-[(2-thiophen-2-yl)vinyl derivatives 5a, b was achieved by refluxing 1a,b with thiophen-2-carbaldehyde and sodium acetate in acetic acid for 12 - 36 hours in 36% - 70% yields. Structures of 4a,b and 5a,b were confirmed by the 1H NMR and mass-spectra data.

The nitrogen-containing p-electrondeficient heterocycles, such as pyridines, quinolines, quinoxalines, appear to be potential candidates for ETL (electron-transporting layer) materials [19]. Therefore, incorporation of the pyridinyl unit at the position 3 in quinazolines can enhance electron transporting properties.

Novel trans-2-[2-(4-methoxyphenyl)vinyl]-3-(pyridin- 2-yl)-3H-quinazolin-4-ones 7a,b were prepared by using quinazolinones 6а,b as the starting materials. 2-Methyl- 3-pyridinyl-3H-quinazolin-4-one 6a was reacted with 4-methoxybenzaldehyde in acetic acid in the presence of sodium acetate to give 7a in 47% yield. However, we failed to prepare 7b under similar reaction conditions in good or moderate yield. Compound 7b was obtained by condensation of difluoroquinazolinone 6b with 4-methoxybenzaldehyde on heating in tetrahydrofuran in the presence of ZnCl2 and acetic anhydride for 12 hours in 35% yield (Scheme 3). The structure of 3-pyridinylquinazolinones 7a,b was confirmed by the 1H NMR and mass spectra. In the 1H NMR spectra of 7a,b four signals of protons of the pyridinyl fragment (as well as in the

spectra of the starting material 6), doublets of СН=СН protons (at 5.92 - 5.95 and 7.88 - 7.89 ppm with 3J 15.3 - 15.4 Hz), and the signals of the benzene ring and aryl substituents were observed.

3-Phenyl/pyridinyl-trans-2-(aryl/heteryl)vinyl-3Hquinazolin-4-ones 3-5, and 7 bearing the quinazolinium moiety as electron acceptor and various substituents in the styryl moiety have been obtained, and strusture effects on photophysical behavior of compounds have been studied. Values for maximal absorption and emission spectra, as well as the Stokes shifts for quinazolinones 3- 5, 7 are collected in Table 3. Absorbtion spectra proved to have the longest wavelength band in MeCN ranging from 330 to 350 nm. Being subjected to photo excitation, compounds 3-5 and 7 display photoluminescence in solution at room temperature. We investigated the dependence of an emission spectra on the nature of substituents attached to the styryl moiety.

Emission maximum of methoxyphenyland thienyl derivatives involving the fluorine atoms at 6 and 7 positions (3c, 5b) is larger then one of non-fluorinated compounds 3a, 5a. Incorporation of fluorine atoms does not change the emission maximum for 2-pyridinylvinylderivatives (4b vs 4a), and results in blue effect for nitrophenyland 3-pyridinyl derivatives (3d vs 3b and 7b vs 7a, Table 3). The emission maximum decreases in the following order: 4-NO2C6H4 > 4-CH3OC6H4 > thienyl > pyridinyl both for fluorinated, and not fluorinated quinazolinones 3-5 (Table 3, Figure 2). Displacement of the phenyl group in position 3 of quinazolinone with the 2-pyridinyl unit leads to a large blue shift of the emission maxima (7b vs 3c) (Table 3, Figure 2). Fluorescence quantum yields proved to be rather small.

A low intensity of fluorescence of styrylderivatives 3- 5, 7 is in agreement with data for styrylquinolinium dyes [20]. According to the articles [21,22] the weak emission may be due to a competitive quenching through the trans-cis C=C photo isomerization process. Rather low luminescence intensities for compounds 3-5 and 7 in solutions are also obliged to the (E)-(Z)-isomerization. In a frozen glass at 77 K, conformational changes of styrylsubstituted systems are suppressed, and intensities of the emission are expected to get increased [17]. Spectra of absorption and emission of compounds 3-5 and 7 have been recorded in 2-methyltetrahydrofurane at 293 K and 77 K. It follows from Table 4 and Figure 3 that the emission spectra of quinazolinones 3-5 and 7 recorded at low temperature have a great difference from those at room temperature. Under a low temperature the intensity of luminescence is enhanced significantly (Table 4).

Thus, the tuning of the photophysical properties introducing substituents in styrylquinazolinones is very useful. Heterocyclic compounds based on quinazolinone scaffold proved to exhibit attractive properties in various aggregation states, and they appear to be promising for further study.

All melting points were determined using a Stuart SMP3 Melting Point Apparatus in open capillary tubes. 1Н NMR spectra were recorded on a Bruker DRX 400 instrument (400.13 МHz). Chemical shifts are given in ppm (d) from the internal TMS standard. Mass spectra were obtained from a MicrOTOF-Q II mass spectral instrument (Bruker Daltonics, positive or negative APCI ion source, electrospray ionization). Acetonitrile (99% purity), 2-methyltetrahydrofurane (99%, stab. with ca 150 - 400 ppm BHT) (Alfa Aesar, UK) was used at UV-

spectroscopy grade. Absorption spectra were scanned on UV-2401 PC absorption spectrophotometer (Shimadzu, Japan) using a 1 cm quartz cell, concentration: 0.0001 mmol/ml (acetonitrile). Emission spectra were recorded on a Cary Eclipse spectrofluorimeter (Varian, USA). The fluorescence of the acetonitrile solution at T = 293 K was measured in 1 cm cuvette. Quantum yields (φf) were determined relative to quinine sulfate in 1N H2SO4f = 0.546) [23]. The concentration was adjusted so that the absorbance of the solution would be lower than 0.1. The excitation was performed at the 366 nm. Low-temperature measurements were carried out in a liquid nitrogen cryostat OptistatDN (Oxford Instrument) in 2-methyltetrahydrofuran solution at T = 293 K and T = 77 K.

All reactions were monitored by thin layer chromatography (TLC) on 0.2 mm silica gel F-254 (Merck) plates using light (254 and 365 nm) for detection. Elemental analyses were performed at the Microanalytical Laboratory of the Postovsky Institute of Organic Synthesis.

X-Ray analysis including data collection, cell refinement and data reduction was carried out with an Oxford Diffraction Xcalibur S CCD diffractometer using CrysAlisPro software package [24]. X-ray data collection was carried out with graphite monochromatized Mo-Kα radiation (α = 0.71073 Å). A correction for absorption not performed. The structure was solved by direct methods using SHELXS-97 and refined by full-marix leastsquares procedure on F2 with SHELXL-97 [25]. Non-H atoms were refined anisotropically, hydrogen atoms were placed in idealized positions and were constrained to ride on their parent atoms.

Quinazolinone 1a was obtained by heating of 3,1- benzoxazin-4-one with aniline in pyridine using the described method [26]. Fluorinated derivative 1b was reported [27]. Quinazolinone 6а was synthesized by heating of 2а with 2-aminopyridine in DMF by using the known procedure [28], fluorinated derivative 6b was reported [26]. Replacement of DMF as solvent with pyridine in the synthesis of 6b required increase in reaction time from 40 min to 4 hours; however it gave a better yield of the target product (85% instead of 68%).
