ABSTRACT 1,2,3-Thiadiazoles, an important synthetic active substructure, are nowadays becoming one of the important branches in novel pesticide development. To develop pesticide candidates with diverse biological activities and probe their structure-activity relationship, three series of 5-methyl-1,2,3-thiadiazoles were rationally designed and synthesized using a simple and convenient one-step synthetic procedure via Ugi reaction. Biological activities of the target compounds including fungicidal activity, antivirus activity in vitro and in vivo, and systemic acquired resistance were systematically evaluated. The results indicated that compound III(10) showed broad-spectrum of activities against most fungi tested, and compounds I(10) and II(17) showed excellent potential antivirus activities as compared to positive control agent ribavirin. The preliminary structure-activity relationship was also discussed. The results of these studies indicated that the 5-position-substituted 1,2,3-thiadiazoles exhibited good antivirus activity and were worthy of further study in pesticide development.

    ABSTRACT: Abstract The title compounds, quinolin-8-yl 4-methyl-1,2,3-thiadiazole-5-carboxylate 2a and 2-nitrophenyl 4-methyl-1,2,3-thiadiazole-5-carboxylate 2b, synthesized by the reaction of 4-methyl-1,2,3-thiadiazole-5-carbonyl chloride with 8-hydroxyquinoline and 2-nitrophenol, were confirmed by single-crystal X-ray diffraction [CCDC 783328 and 784970]. The 2a crystallizes in triclinic space group P-1 with cell parameters a = 7.957(7) Å, b = 8.378(7) Å, c = 10.097(10) Å, α = 100.63(2)°, β = 112.742(17)°, γ = 93.287(4)° and Z = 2. The 2b crystallizes in triclinic space group P-1 with cell parameters a = 7.134(4) Å, b = 8.154(4) Å, c = 10.254(5) Å, α = 99.501(9)°, β = 91.311(7)°, γ = 109.518(8)° and Z = 2. Packing in the compound 2a is dominated by weak C–H···N and C–H···O hydrogen bonds. In the compound 2b, molecules are linked through intermolecular C–H···O hydrogen bonds interactions. The preliminary bioassay showed that the title compound 2a had excellent antifungal activity with the EC50 detected as from 2.99 to 28.35 μg/mL and the EC90 detected as from 21.041 to 175.17 μg/mL. Both of the title compounds 2a and 2b had good inhibition activity of tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) and good induction activity of tobacco against TMV with potential systemic acquired resistance. Graphical Abstract Two 1,2,3-thiadiazole derivatives C13H9N3O2S (2a) and C10H7N3O4S (2b), synthesized by the reaction of 4-methyl-1,2,3-thiadiazole-5-carbonyl chloride with 8-hydroxyquinoline and 2-nitrophenol, were confirmed by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The preliminary bioassay shows that the title compound 2a has excellent antifungal activity. Both of the title compounds 2a and 2b had good inhibition activity of tobacco mosaic virus (TMV) and good induction activity of tobacco against TMV with potential systemic acquired resistance.

    ABSTRACT: N-tert-Butyl-N,N'-diacylhydrazines are nonsteroidal ecdysone agonists used as environmental benign pest regulators. In this paper, two series of new N-tert-butyl-N,N'-diacylhydrazine derivatives containing 1,2,3-thiadiazole were designed and synthesized. All structures of the synthesized compounds were confirmed by proton nuclear magnetic resonance ((1)H NMR), infrared spectroscopy (IR), and high-resolution mass spectrometry (HRMS). Bioasssay results indicated that most of the synthesized compounds possessed good insecticidal activities against Plutella xylostella L. and Culex pipiens pallens as compared with the positive control, tebufenozide. The results of this study indicated that 1,2,3-thiadiazoles, as an important active substructure, could improve or maintain the activity of the dicylhydrazines and favor novel pesticide development.
