ABSTRACT: A series of 1-(substituted biaryloxy)-2-(2,4-difluorophenyl)-3-(1H-1,2,4-triazol-1-yl) propan-2-ol were synthesized and their antifungal activities were evaluated against eight human pathogenic fungi in vitro. Seventeen compounds showed activity 4- to 64-fold higher than voriconazole against Candida albicans. SAR clearly suggested that introduction of a biaryloxy side chain greatly enhanced the antifungal activity of triazole analogs against Candida species.
