Imidazole-containing chalcones have been shown to be strongly effective against Aspergillusfumigatus, the causative agent for the disease pulmonary aspergillosis. Claisen–Schmidt condensation of 4-(1H-imidazol-1-yl)benzaldehyde with 4′-methylacetophenone using aqueous sodium hydroxide in methanol yielded the novel compound (E)-3-[4-(1H-imidazol-1-yl)phenyl]-1-(4-methylphenyl)prop-2-en-1-one in good yield and purity after recrystallization from hot methanol. With the known antifungal properties of these combined pharmacophores, this novel compound is suitable for anti-aspergillus activity study. View Full-Text
