Enols as potent antibacterial agents.


PMID 11677129

Abstract

This paper describes the discovery of alpha-trifluoroketoacetamides as potent antibacterial agents against Gram-positive organisms. The initial SAR indicates that the aryl ethyl side chain is essential in maintaining antibacterial activity. The SAR observations have been utilized to design a bioisostere for the alpha-trifluoroketoacetamide with good activity against Gram-positive organisms.
