To explore new potential fungicides, a series of novel compounds, including 11 2-oxocycloalkylsulfonamide (3) and 21 2-hydroxycycloalkylsulfonamide (4) derivatives, were synthesized and their structures were confirmed by (1)H nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), infrared (IR), and elemental analysis. The results of the bioassay showed that the compounds 3 and 4 possessed excellent fungicidal activity against Botrytis cinerea Pers. both in vitro and in vivo. The fungicidal activity of the compounds with 7- or 8-membered rings is better than those with 5-, 6-, or 12-membered rings. According to the results of the mycelium growth rate test, the EC(50) values of the compounds 3C, 4C, 3D, and 4D were 0.80, 0.85, 1.22, and 1.09 μg/mL, respectively, and similar to or better than commercial fungicide procymidone. The bioassay results of spore germination indicated that most of the compounds exhibited obvious inhibitory effects against B. cinerea and the inhibition rates of 2-oxocycloalkylsulfonamides were higher than 2-hydroxycycloalkylsulfonamides, among them. The EC(50) values of compounds 3A, 3B(17), 3E, and 4A were 4.21, 4.21 3.24, and 5.29 μg/mL, respectively. Those compounds containing 5- or 6-membered rings showed better activity than those containing 7-, 8-, or 12-membered rings. Furthermore, the results of the pot culture test showed that almost all of the compounds had effective control activity in vivo and 2-hydroxycycloalkylsulfonamides were obviously superior to 2-oxocycloalkylsulfonamides. The compounds 3E, 4C and 4D presented higher control efficacy than procymidone and pyrimethanil against gray mold disease on cucumber plants.

    • "They also were employed as anhydrase inhibitors (Song et al. 2007), antifungal (Isik et al., 2009), antiviral (Gawin et al. 2008), antitumor (Bouissane et al. 2006), and anti-inflammatory agents (Weber et al. 2004). Besides, previous studies investigated the fungicidal activity of a sulfanilamide compound against Botrytis cinerea; the pathogen responsible for gray mold disease of a variety of fruits, vegetables, and field crops (Li et al. 2010), Fusarium oxysporum the causal agent of fusariosis in cereals (Everitt and Sullivan 1940), Puccinia graminis responsible for the wheat stem rust (Tapke, 1950).

    ABSTRACT: A new organic–inorganic hybrid SO4[C6H9N2O2S]2, has been synthesized and characterized by X–ray diffraction. This compound crystallizes in the orthorhombic system, spaces group Pbcn. In the title compound, the packing is stabilized by intermolecular N-H…O hydrogen bonds and π-π stacking interactions between the phenyl rings, linking the molecules into three-dimensional network. The in vitro antimicrobial activity of di (4-sulfamoyl-phenyl-ammonium) sulphate was determined by the broth dilution method against several strains selected to define their spectrum and potency. Here we show that the synthetic sulfanilamide exhibits promising antibacterial potency. High inhibition was also detected against Candida albicans. In this paper we firstly showed the antifungal activity of the sulfanilamide against two serious phytopathogenic fungi. Interestingly, the new compound was able to suppress mycelial growth as well as the spores germination of tested fungi, values of spore germination vary from 97.6% to 37.5% respectively for Botrytis cinerea and Fusarium species. The minimal inhibitory concentrations (MIC) ranging from 8 to 100 μg ml-1 and IC50 values varying from 5.81 to less than 100 μg ml-1), showed that the sulfanilamide sulphate had high activity against bacteria, yeast and fungi, compared to others published antifungal compounds.

    ABSTRACT: An ionic liquid-supported aldehyde was designed and converted to ionic liquid-supported secondary aryl amines through reductive amination. The reaction of ionic liquid-supported aryl amines with sulfonyl chlorides and acid chlorides, respectively, followed by cleavage using trifluoroacetic acid (TFA) afforded sulfonamides and caboxamides. To introduce additional diversity in the synthesis of sulfonamides and caboxamides, ionic liquid-supported iodosubstituted aryl amine was synthesized using the same strategy, and underwent Suzuki coupling reaction, followed by reaction with a methanesulfonyl chloride to generate the corresponding biaryl sulfonamide. The advantages of the protocol over solid-phase synthesis are homogeneous reaction medium, high loading, easy separation of products, and characterization of intermediates.

    ABSTRACT: The 1,3-diol moiety is present in a number of natural products and has some biological activity. Four symmetric anti-2,4-bis(X-phenyl)pentane-2,4-diols (a, X = p-F; b, X = p-CF3; c, X = m-OMe; d, X = m-CF3) have been characterized by X-ray diffraction, and the results indicated that the dihedral angles between the every two benzene rings in the systems are 34.38(10)°, 39.46(13)°, 23.42(7)°(A), 30.42(7)°(B) and 44.74(9)°, respectively. All of the structures were stabilized by classical intra- and intermolecular hydrogen bonding and some other weak interactions. It was observed that the hydrogen bonding patterns were formed between each single-molecule in compounds a–d, whereas H-bonding dimers were formed in the crystal lattices of both the anti- and syn-2,4-bisphenylpentane-2,4-diols. The four symmetric diaryl 1,3-diols were evaluated alongside several other 1,3-diols as potential antifungal agents, and their in vitro antifungal activities were measured against several fungal species, including Gibberella zeae, Botrytis cinerea, Alternaria alternata and Sclerotonia sclerotiorum.
