Emerging infection diseases and the increasing number of multi-drug resistant microbial pathogen still make the treatment of infection disease an important pressing global problem therefore a substantial research for the discovery and new class of antimicrobial agents is needed. Keeping in mind isoxazoline derivatives are useful as intermediates in the organic synthesis, are found to possess a wide important pharmacophore and privileged structure in medicinal chemistry. They possess fungicidal, antimicrobial, bactericidal and mutagenic activities. Isoxazoline possess various biological and pharmacological activities. In addition, they find application as dyestuffs, auxiliaries in fiber finishes, dropping dye in the electroluminescence device and in liquid crystalline mixture. Synthesis of novel isoxazoline derivative remains a main focus of medicinal chemist, due to their diverse pharmacological activity. Isoxazoline derivatives have been reported to possess antifungal1,2 antibacterial,3 anticonvulsant,4 anti-inflammatory,5 antiviral6 and analgesic7activity. Much research has been carried out with the aim to finding therapeutic values of isoxazoline moiety since their discovery. A large number of substituted isoxazoline derivatives are prepared and tested for variety of biological activities. Such as antimicrobial activity8,9 and hypolipemics.10 J. T. Desai11 et al has been reported the synthesis and antimicrobial activity of some new isoxazoline moiety. All the compounds have been screened for antibacterial activity against bacteria Gram +ve & Gram -ve antifungal activity. Y. Rajendra Prasad12 et al has been reported the 3-(2”-hydroxy napthalen-1”- yl)-5-phenyl-2-isoxazolines and tested their antidepressant activity. Hae Suk Youn et al.13 has been reported the synthesis and biological evaluation of isoxazoline. Amber L. Norman et al.14 reported that 3,5-disubstitued D2-isoxazolines can be prepared from the corresponding α,β-unsaturated ketone by treatment with hydroxyl amine hydrochloride and sodium hydroxide.
These finding prompted us to synthesize the substituted isoxazoline derivatives containing antimicrobial active profile like pyrazole nucleus enhances the activity of parent compound by using greener reaction solvent i.e. polyethylene glycol-400 (PEG). One of the key areas of green chemistry is the replacement of the hazardous solvent as with environmentally benign solvents like polyethylene glycol-400 (PEG). Recently, liquid polymers or low melting polymers like PEG’s have emerged as alternative green reaction media with unique properties such as thermal stability, commercial availability, non-volatility, immiscibility with a number of organic solvents and recyclability. PEGs are preferred over other polymers because they are inexpensive, completely non-halogenated, easily degradable and of low toxicity.15 Many organic reactions have been carried out using PEGs as solvent or co-solvent such as Heck reaction,16 asymmetric dihydroxylation,17 Suzuki crosscoupling reaction18 oxy-dehydrogenation of alcohols and cyclic dienes, oxidation of sulfides and the Wacker reaction19 and partial reduction reaction of alkynes.20

A mixture (5-chloro-2-hydroxy-3-iodophenyl)-3-(5-chloro-3-Methyl-1-phenyl-1H-Pyrazol-4-yl)-prop-2-en-1-one (0.001mmol) and hydroxyl amine hydrochloride (0.0015 mmol) in PEG-400 (15 mL) was heated at 80 ℃ for 2-3 hours as shown in Scheme 1. After completion of reaction (monitored by TLC), the reaction mixture was extracted with ethyl acetate (2×20 mL). The combined organic layers were dried over anhydrous Na2SO4, and the solvent was evaporated under reduced pressure. The obtained product was recrystallized by aqueous acetic acid to give pure product.

The starting chalcones are prepared by the reported method.24 Initially, we attempted the condensation of (5-chloro-2-hydroxy-3-iodophenyl)-3-(5-chloro-3-methyl-1-phenyl-1H-Pyrazol-4-yl)-prop-2-en-1-one (0.001 mmol) with hydroxyl amine hydrochloride (0.0015 mmol) in PEG-400 (15 mL) as reaction solvent. The reaction went to completion and corresponding product (2a) was obtained in 90% yield and rest of the product obtained is summarized in Table 1.
Scheme 1.Synthesis of pyrazole containing isoxazoline derivatives.
The antimicrobial activities of the synthesized compounds were determined by agar well diffusion method.25 The compounds were evaluated for antibacterial activity against Escherichia coli (MTCC 2939), Salmonella typhi (MTCC 98), Staphylococcus aureus (MTCC 96), and Bacillus subtilis (MTCC 441). The antifungal activity was evaluated against Aspergillus niger (MTCC 281), Aspergillus flavus (MTCC 2501), Penicillium chrsogenum (MTCC 160) and Fusarium moniliformae (MTCC 156), and were procured from Institute of Microbial technology (IMTech), Chandigarh, India. The antibiotic penicillin (25 μg/mL) was used as reference drug for both antibacterial and Nystatin was used as reference drug for antifungal activity. Dimethyl sulphoxide (1%, DMSO) was used a control with out compound.

The culture strains of bacteria were maintained on nutrient agar slant at 37±0.5 ℃ for 24 h. The antibacterial activity was evaluated using nutrient agar plate seeded with 0.1 mL of respective bacterial culture strain suspension prepared in sterile saline (0.85%) of 105 CFU/mL dilutions. The wells of 6 mm diameter were filled with 0.1 mL of compound solution at fixed concentration 25 μg/mL separately for each bacterial strain. All the plates were incubated at 37±0.5 ℃ for 24 h. Zone of inhibition of compounds in mm were noted.
For antifungal activity, all the culture strains of fungi maintained on potato dextrose agar (PDA) slant at 27±0.2 ℃ for 24-48 hr till sporulation. Spore of strains were transferred in to 5 mL of sterile distilled water containing 1% Tween-80 (to suspend the spore properly). The spores were counted by haemocytometer (106 CFU/mL). Sterile PDA plate was prepared containing 2% agar; 0.1 mL of each fungal spore suspension was spread on each plate and incubated at 27±0.2 ℃ for 12 hrs. After incubation well prepared using sterile cork borer and each agar well was filled with 0.1 mL of compound solution at fixed concentration 25 μg/mL. The plates were kept in refrigerator for 20 minutes for diffusion and then incubated at 27±0.2 ℃ for 24-28 hrs. After incubation, zone of inhibition of compounds were measured in mm along with standard.
