Synthesis, antibacterial and antifungal activities of some carbazole derivatives.


PMID 20176480

Abstract

A series of N-substituted carbazole derivatives were synthesized and evaluated for antibacterial and antifungal activities against Staphylococcus aureus, methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Bacillus subtilis, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Bacillus proteus, Candida albicans and Aspergillus fumigatus by two fold serial dilution technique. Some of the synthesized compounds displayed comparable or even better antibacterial and antifungal activities than reference drugs fluconazole, chloramphenicol and norfloxacin against tested strains.
