Abstract: 3-Alkoxycarbonylmethyl-6-bromo- and 3-alkoxycarbonylmethyl-6-nitro-2-benzothiazolones were synthesized by reaction of alkylesters of halogenoacetic acids with 6-bromo-2-benzothiazolones and 6-nitro-2-benzothiazolones respectively. The compounds were tested for plant growth stimulating activity on wheat (Triticum aestivum). The bromo derivatives manifested 25.4 % average stimulating activity in comparison with the control. The stimulation activity of the nitro derivatives was not significant. Optimal structures of the compounds were obtained by a MMPI method, atomic charges and dipole moments were calculated by a semiempirical AM1 method. On the basis of molecular electrostatic potential it has been found that the biological activity of synthesized compounds depends on charge distribution in the molecules.
Keywords: 3-Alkoxycarbonylmethyl-6-bromo-2-benzothiazolones; 3-alkoxycarbonylmethyl- 6-nitro-2-benzothiazolones; plant growth regulators; AM1 calculations; lipophilicity
