Synthesis and antifungal activity of a new series of 2-(1H-imidazol-1-yl)-1-phenylethanol derivatives.

Abstract

A new series of aromatic ester and carbamate derivatives of 2-(1H-imidazol-1-yl)-1-phenylethanol were synthesized and evaluated for their antifungal activity towards Candida albicans and non-albicans Candida species strains. The aromatic biphenyl ester derivatives 6a-c were more active than the reference compound fluconazole. 6c possesses a MIC mean values of 1.7 ± 1.4 μg mL(-1)vs C. albicans and 1.9 ± 2.0 μg mL(-1)vs non-albicans Candida species strains. The racemic mixtures of 6a, b were purified to afford the pure enantiomers. The (-) isomers were up to 500 times more active than (+) isomers. (-)-6a and (-)-6b were thirty and ninety times more active than fluconazole towards C. krusei strain respectively. The racemates of 6a-c showed low cytotoxicity against human monocytic cell line (U937) with 6a demonstrating a CC(50) greater than 128 μg mL(-1).
