The novel compound of 2-(5-(3-methoxyphenyl)-4,5-dihydro-1H-pyrazol-3-yl)phenol as a pyrazoline derivative has been synthesized by two-steps reaction using sodium impregnated on activated chicken eggshells (Na-ACE) catalyst. Na-ACE was primarily prepared by a simple wet impregnation of NaOH solution on activated chicken eggshells solid support. The Na-ACE catalyst produced was characterized using FTIR spectrophotometer, XRD and SEM then applied in pyrazoline synthesis. First, chalcone was prepared from the reaction of 2-hydroxyacetophenone and 3-methoxybenzaldehyde by base-catalyzed aldol condensation. This product was subsequently reacted with hydrazine hydrate to give corresponding pyrazoline. The structure elucidation of the compound using FTIR, UV-Vis, LC-ESI-MS and 1H-NMR indicated the desired product has been successfully synthesized. Furthermore, the potential antioxidant activities of chalcone and pyrazoline have also been studied in-vitro using DPPH radical scavenging method. The results revealed that pyrazoline has a greater antioxidant activity than chalcone.
