Abstract

ROHINI, Rondla et al. Synthesis of some new mono, bis-indolo[1, 2-c]quinazolines: evaluation of their antimicrobial studies. J. Braz. Chem. Soc. [online]. 2010, vol.21, n.5, pp. 897-904. ISSN 0103-5053.  http://dx.doi.org/10.1590/S0103-50532010000500018.

A convenient three-step strategy is proposed for the synthesis of mono and bis-indolo[1,2-c] quinazolines from 2-(2-aminophenyl)indole and various aryl aldehydes. The newly synthesized compounds were characterized by elemental analysis, IR, 1H NMR, 13C NMR, and mass spectroscopic investigation. All the derivatives were screened for antibacterial (S. aureus, B. subtilis, S. pyogenes, S. typhimurium, E. coli, K. pneumonia) and antifungal (A. niger, C. albicans, T. viridae) activities by cup plate method. Among the compounds tested, mono- indolo[1,2-c] quinazolines (15-18) exhibited good antibacterial activities while 15 and 18 also showed notable antifungal activity. Especially, 19 and 20 exhibited stronger antibacterial as well as antifungal activity against all tested strains.

Keywords : indolo[1,2-c]quinazolines; synthesis; antibacterial activity; antifungal activity.
