Synthesis and antifungal activity of 5-arylamino-4,7-dioxobenzo[b]thiophenes.


PMID 15863328

Abstract

5-Arylamino-4,7-dioxobenzo[b]thiophenes 3-6 were synthesized and tested for in vitro antifungal activity against Candida and Aspergillus species. 5-Arylamino-6-chloro-2-(methoxycarbonyl)-4,7-dioxobenzo[b]thiophenes 5 showed, in general, more potent antifungal activity against Candida species than the other 4,7-dioxobenzo[b]thiophenes 3, 4 and 6. The results suggest that 5-arylamino-4,7-dioxobenzo[b]thiophenes would be potent antifungal agents.
