naphthol

 [naf´thol]
a phenol occurring in coal tar in two forms: α- or 1-naphthol and β- or 2-naphthol. It is used in dyes, insecticides, and pharmaceutical compounds. If excessive amounts are ingested, poisoning may result, characterized by anemia, jaundice, convulsions, and coma.

naph·thol

(naf'thol),
A hydroxynaphthalene, occurring in two forms: α-naphthol, a dye intermediate used in cytochemistry for l-arginine localization; and β-naphthol, also known as isonaphthol, used as an anthelmintic and antiseptic. Both forms are also used in the manufacture of dyes, organic chemicals, and rubber products.
Synonym(s): naphthalenol

naphthol

Toxicology A white crystalline phenol derivative intermediate in the synthesis of multiple compounds including pharmaceuticals Toxicity Abdominal pain, glomerulonephritis, convulsions, circulatory collapse, skin pigmentation

One limitation of the data set we analyzed is that preexposure levels of urinary 1- and 2-naphthol were missing for roughly half of our study subjects.

The naphthoxazines studied in this work were obtained by a one-pot reaction between 2-naphthol, an aldehyde (formaldehyde or furfural), and a nitrogenated compound (furfurylamine or ammonium acetate) under solvent-free conditions and without the use of catalysts, as shown in Figure 2.
As shown in Scheme 1, the hetarylazo dyes 3(a-f) were prepared through the diazotization of 5-phenyl-1,3,4-thiadiazol-2-amine and coupled with different coupling components such as 8-hydroxyquinoline, 2,6-diamino pyridine, N,N dimethyl aniline, 2-naphthol, resorcinol, and 4,6-dihydroxypyrimidine.
The coatings were compounded with naphthalene, phenanthrene, quinoline, and 2-naphthol as our model coal tar components.
In the direction of search the scope of this 3-CR, some substituted benzaldehydes reacted with amides (benzamide, urea, acetamide)/thiourea (2a-d) and 2-naphthol (3) under the optimized reaction conditions, and the results are shown in Table 2.
Associations with individual PAH metabolites and with [SIGMA]mol3-4PAHs were less precise than those estimated for [SIGMA]molPAHs and [SIGMA]NAPHT, but 2-naphthol was positively associated with BMI z-score, WC, and obesity (overall and in both age groups), and 1-phenanthrene and 2-phenanthrene were positively associated with BMI z-score and WC (overall and in both age groups) (see Supplemental Material, Tables S1 and S2).

The one pot synthesis of titled compounds 1-[(5-substituted-2-phenyl-1H-indol-3-yl)(piperidin-1-yl) methyl]naphthalene-2-ol and 1-[(dimethylamino)(5substituted-2-phenyl-1H-indol-3-yl)methyl]naphthalene-2-ol and their -1-ol isomers was achieved by condensation of 1- or 2-naphthol and secondary amines with 2,5-disubstituted indole-3-carboxaldehydes in dichloromethane stirring at room temperature (Scheme 1 and Table 1).
