Abstract

Anti-Candida activities of certain new oximes 4ad and their respective aromatic esters 5al are reported. The tested compounds 4ad and 5al exhibited better anti-Candida profiles than fluconazole. Compound 5j, namely (E)-3-(1H-imidazol-1-yl)-1-phenylpropan-1-one O-4-chlorobenzoyl oxime emerged as the most active congener, with a MIC value of 0.0054 µmol/mL being more potent than both fluconazole (MIC > 1.6325 µmol/mL) and miconazole (MIC value = 0.0188 µmol/mL) as a new anti-Candida albicans agent.
Keywords: synthesis; Mannich reaction; azoles; oxime esters; anti-Candida synthesis; Mannich reaction; azoles; oxime esters; anti-Candida
