The present reviews attempted to gather the various developments in synthesis and biological activities of Benzimidazolyl chalcone derivatives.

Introduction

Benzimidazole is regarded as a promising class of bioactive heterocyclic compounds that exhibit a range of biological activities [1]. Specifically, this nucleus is a constituent of vitamin-B12. This ring system is present in numerous antioxidant [2], antimicrobial [3], antihelmintics [4], anti- HIV, anticonvulsant [5], anti-inflammatory [6], antineoplastic [7], and antifungal activities [8]. The varied bioactivities exhibited by benzimidazoles, efforts have been made from time to time to generate libraries of these compounds and screened them for potential biological activities.

Benzimidazole derivatives on combining with chalcones have resulted in formation of compound possessing a large number of different biological activities [9,10]. The chemical profile of benzimidazolyl-chalcones was conceptualized according to pharmacochemical methodologies of juxtaposition of potential biological entities. The choice of these two entities (benzimidazole and phenylpropenone) is justified by their high intrinsic ability to induce biological activities of therapeutic interest. Due to versatility of these compounds chemists are mainly focused on their synthetic methods. Different derivatives of chalcone clubbed with benzimidazole nucleus as a prime motif were synthesized by different authors [11].

Different methods are reported in the literature for the preparation of Benzimidazolyl chalcones. Some classical methods are Claisen-Schmidt condensation, Suzuki reaction and Heck reaction [12]. Besides classical methods for synthesizing these chalcones, the green chemistry approach proposes as well a variety of examples. There are current different methods; these differ in conditions implying catalysts, solvents and times of irradiation [13,14].

Due to versatility of these compounds, we became interested in the study of different methods of synthesis of substituted Benzimidazolyl chalcone derivatives. This review summarizes the different synthetic methodology for different derivatives of substituted Benzimidazolyl chalcones along with their activity.

Synthetic schemes for Benzimidazolyl chalcones

Dubey et al. in 2003 performed the oxidation of 1-alkyl/aralkyl-2(α-hydroxyalkyl/aryl) benzimidazoles with KMnO4 on neutral alumina under solid phase conditions give corresponding ketones, 1-alkyl/aralkyl-2-acyl-benzimidazoles. Further condensation with aromatic aldehydes in the presence of solid NaOH under solvent free conditions yields corresponding chalcones, 1-alkyl/aralkyl-2-benzimidazole aryl vinyl ketones (Scheme 1) [15].

Later, Baviskar et al. prepared some novel benzimidazolyl chalcones by condensation of N-(4-(1H-benzo[d]imidazol-2-yl) phenyl) acetamide with aromatic aldehydes in presence of aqueous potassium hydroxide solution at room temperature (Scheme 5).

All compounds were screened in vitro for their nematicidal activity. Preliminary structure-activity relationship show that replacement of phenyl group in position 1 of 1,3-diphenyl-2-propen-1-one by Benzimidazole ring induces the occurrence of a potential anthelmintic activity. So the hybrid benzimidazolyl-chalcones are therefore promising candidates for the development of new anthelmintic agents substituted at positions 5 and/or 6 of the Benzimidazole ring [29].
