Synthesis of Some New Spiro β-Lactams and Thiazolidinones Compounds Containing Sulfur Incorporating Quinon Compounds


A series of spiro, β-Lactams, and thiazolidinones incorporating compounds 4 have been synthesized by cycloaddition reaction of, chloroacetyl chloride and mercaptoacetic acid with the synthesized Shiff,s bases 5a-c to give new spiro β- Lactam 6a-c and spiro thiazolidinone 7a-c the cycloaddition were characterized by spectral data including HNMR, 13C-NMR, IR and elemental analysis.
