Synthesis and Fungicidal Activity of Lansiumamide A and B and Their Derivatives
AbstractA efficient 2-step protocol has been applied for the synthesis of Lansiumamide B (N-methyl-N-cis-styryl-cinnamamide, 2) derivatives by various substitution on the amide nitrogen with alkyl, allyl, propargyl, benzyl or ester groups. The structures of nine new compounds were characterized by HRMS, 1H NMR, and 13C NMR spectra. These compounds were tested in vitro against 10 strains of phytopathogenic fungi and showed a wide antifungal spectrum. The relationship between different substituents on the amide nitrogen and antifungal activity of Lansiumamide B derivatives were compared and analyzed. The result indicates that the length and steric hindrance of N-substitution have a significant impact on biological activities. It is noteworthy that the methyl or ethyl substituent on the amide nitrogen is critical for the antifungal activities. View Full-Text
