A solvent-free, green, and efficient mechanochemical method for the synthesis of a series of bridged bicyclo aza-sulfone derivatives, namely 7-oxa-4-thia-1-aza-bicyclo[3.2.1]octane 4,4-dioxides through tandem Michael addition–1,3-dipolar cycloaddition of aldoximes was developed. Mechanochemical grinding/milling facilitates quick formation of aldoximes from corresponding aldehydes and hydroxylamine, which upon reaction with divinyl sulfone in a mixer mill affords 7-oxa-4-thia-1-aza-bicyclo[3.2.1]octane 4,4-dioxide derivatives in good overall yields. The newly synthesized bicyclo aza-sulfone derivatives 4 were screened for antibacterial activities. Mostly bicyclo aza-sulfones derived from electron-rich aromatic aldehydes inhibit the growth of Mycobacterium smegmatis (mc2155) and those from aliphatic aldehydes the growth of Escherichia coli (DH5α) in moderate to good effect. However, butyraldehyde-derived compound 4r was very effective against both M. smegmatis and E. coli. The key advantages of this mechanochemical method are catalyst- and solvent-free conditions, shorter reaction time, and formation of a new series of 7-oxa-4-thia-1-aza-bicyclo[3.2.1]octane 4,4-dioxide derivatives, which are good antibacterial agents against M. smegmatis and E. coli.An efficient mechanochemical method for the highly regio- and stereoselective synthesis of bridged bicyclo aza-sulfones, namely 7-oxa-4-thia-1-aza-bicyclo[3.2.1]octane 4,4-dioxides, by tandem Michael addition–1,3-dipolar cycloaddition has been developed. Some of the obtained compounds are reasonably good antibacterial agents against Mycobacterium smegmatis and Escherichia coli.
