Bis-pyrimidine acetamides: design, synthesis and biological evaluation

Bis-pyrimidine acetamides: design, synthesis and biological evaluation Background: In the past few years, increased resistance of microorganisms towards antimicrobial agents become a serious health problem, so there is a need for the discovery of new antimicrobial agents. On the other hand, bis- pyrimidines possess various types of biological activity. In view of this, in the present study we have designed and synthesized a new series of bis-pyrimidine acetamides by Claisen–Schmidt condensation and screened for its in vitro antimicrobial and anticancer activities. 1 13 Results: The synthesized bis-pyrimidine acetamide derivatives were confirmed by IR, H/ C-NMR, Mass spectral studies as well C, H, N analyses. The synthesized compounds were evaluated for their in vitro antimicrobial poten- tial against Gram positive (Staphylococcus aureus and Bacillus subtilis); Gram negative (Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Salmonella enterica) bacterial and fungal (Candida albicans and Aspergillus niger) strains by tube dilu- tion technique and the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) recorded in µmol/mL was comparable to reference drugs, cefadroxil (antibacterial) and fluconazole (antifungal). The in vitro anticancer activity (IC value) determined against human colorectal carcinoma (HCT116) cancer cell line by Sulforhodamine B (SRB) technique and 5-fluorouracil used as reference drug. Conclusions: The biological study demonstrated that compounds 3, 13, 16, 17 and 18 Chemistry Central Journal Springer Journals
