The structures of hemi-synthesized compounds were confirmed by high throughput IR, MS, 1H and 13C NMR based spectrometric analysis. Their antiparasitic activities were evaluated in vitro on Trypanosoma brucei brucei (Tbb). The compound 3 (IC50=8.63±0.81 µM) and 4 (IC50=10.90±2.52 µM) exhibited antitrypanosomal activity, 2 had a moderate activity (IC50=74.58±4.44 µM) but 1 was void of significant activity (IC50=478.47 µM). The in vitro tests showed that all compounds were less cytotoxic against the human non cancer fibroblast cell line (WI38) (IC50>80 µM) while only 2 (IC50=21.16±1.37 μM) and 4 (IC50=32.22±1.66 µM) were cytotoxic against the Chinese Hamster Ovary (CHO) cells and toxic on Artemia salina (Leach) larvae. Piperitone 4-phenyl semicarbazone 3, the best antitrypanosomal compound, showed also a selectivity index (SI) higher than 7 on the larvae and the tested cells and therefore might be further studied as antitrypanosomal agent. Also, all compounds except 3 showed selectivity between the two tested cell lines (SI>2). This data reveals for the first time the antitrypinosomal properties of thiosemicarbazones, their cytotoxicity on mammalian cells as well as their activities against Tbb and A. salina Leach.

Analysis of the essential oil by GC-FID and GC–MS The GC-FID analysis was carried out on a FOCUS GC (Thermo Finigan; Milan, Italy) using the following operating conditions: HP 5MS column (30 m×0.25 mm, film thickness: 0.25 μm) (J&W Scientific Column of Agilent Technologies, USA); injection mode: splitless; injection volume: 1 µL (TBME solution); flow of split: 10 ml/min; splitless time: 0.80 min; injector temperature: 260 °C; oven temperature was programmed as following: 50 °C–250 °C at 6 °C/min and held at 250 °C for 5 min; the carrier gas was helium with a constant flow of 1.2 mL/min; FID detector temperature was 260 °C. The data were recorded and treated with the ChromCard software. The quantification was completed by the calculation of the areas under curve of the peaks (GC-FID, normalization process) and the identification of compounds by comparison of the retention indices (RI) with the references. The GC–MS analysis were carried out using a TRACE GC 2000 series (Thermo-Quest, Rodano, Italy), equipped with an autosampler AS2000 Thermo-Quest operating in the electronic impact mode at 70 eV. HP 5MS column (30 m×0.25 mm, film thickness: 0.25 μm). The coupling temperature of the GC was 260 °C and the temperature of the source of the electrons was 260 °C. The data were analyzed with the Xcalibur 1.1 software (ThermoQuest). The mass spectra of the peaks were analyzed and compared with references, literature and the NIST/EPA/NIH database. The individual components of the volatile oils were identified by comparison of their relative retention times with those of authentic standard references, computer matching against commercial library and custom proprietary library mass spectra made from pure substances and components of known oils. Mass spectrometry literature data were also used for the identification. Quantification (expressed as percentages) was carried after normalization using peak areas obtained by FID. 2.2. Hemi-synthesized compounds identification The melting points were taken on a fusionometer type electrothermal 1A 9000. The IR spectra were recorded on a Perkin-Elmer FTIR 286. The frequencies of absorption bands were expressed in cm−1. The NMR spectra were registered on a Bruker 500 in chloroform-d6 (CDCl3) or dimethylsulfoxide-d6 (DMSO-d6) which frequencies for 1H and 13C were 400 MHz and 100 MHz respectively. Chemical shifts were given in parts per million (ppm) relative to tetra-methyl silane (TMS) as an internal reference. Multiplicity was designated as singlet (s), triplet (t), doublet (d) and multiplet (m). MS spectrometric data of compounds were reported in APCI mode. The semicarbazones and thiosemicarbazones were synthesized by the following methods: Piperitone semicarbazone (1): to a stirred mixture of 304 mg of C. schoenantus essential oil dissolved in 3 ml of ethanol at 95° was added 1 mmol (111.5 mg) of semicarbazide hydrochloride dissolved in 2 ml of distilled water. 5 drops of triethylamine were added to a mixture after a minute of stirring. Then crystals appeared after 5 min of agitation but the stirring was maintained for another hour. The resulting crystals were filtered, washed until neutral, dried, weighed and then recrystallized in ethanol (Fig. 1). Piperitone substituted semicarbazone and thiosemicarbazones (2, 3, 4): To a stirring of the mixture of 304 mg of C. schoenantus essential oil dissolved in 3 ml of ethanol was added 1 mmol of semicarbazide or substituted (thio) semicarbazides dissolved in 3 ml of hydrochloric acid (1 N). After the appearance of crystals between one to three minutes, stirring was continued for one hour. The resulting crystals were filtered, washed until neutral, dried, weighed and recrystallized from ethanol (Fig. 2). Fig. 1 Download high-res image (86KB)Download full-size image Fig. 1.
