SYNTHESIS AND ANTIMICROBIAL ACTIVITY OF SOME METHYL 4-(1H-BENZO[d] IMIDAZOL-2-YL) PHENYL CARBAMODITHIOATE AMINE DERIVATIVESAbstract
Benzimidazole is a heterocyclic aromatic organic compound which has been an important pharmacophore and privileged structure in medicinal chemistry. Substituted benzimidazoles have considerable interest as compounds with a wide spectrum of biological activity and low toxicity. In the present study, a new series of benzimidazole thiourea derivatives are synthesize and screened for antibacterial and antifungal activity. The Methyl 4-(1H-benzo[d]imidazol-2-yl) phenyl carbamodithioate amine derived from Methyl 4-(1H-benzo[d]imidazol-2-yl) phenyl carbamodithioate (TD1-TD6) have been synthesized by reacting the thio methyl group with different amines in presence of ethanol. The synthesized compounds were characterized by FT-IR, 1H NMR, Mass spectra and elemental analysis. The synthesized compounds were screened for their in vitro growth inhibiting activity against four bacterial strains Bacillus subtilis, Staphylococcus aureus (Gram positive bacteria); Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aureginosa (Gram negative bacteria) and two fungal strains namely Candida albicans and Asperginous niger. The synthesize compounds were compared with standard agents norfloxacin for antibacterial and fluconazole for antifungal activity using well plate method. Compounds exhibit good activity in bacteria Bacillus subtilis and fungous Candida albicans. Synthetic compounds show moderate to high antibacterial and antifungal activity. Some compounds show appreciable antimicrobial activity.
