Evaluation of antifungal and antibacterial activities of monoesters of succinic anhydride

M. Iqbal, I. Bakhsh Baloch, M. Kaleem Baloch

Abstract


Monoester of succinic acid (1-29), synthesised and characterised at our laboratory, were investigated with reference to their antifungal and antibacterial activities. The results concluded that though almost all the compounds were bioactive but the degree of activity was dependent over the substituent attached to benzyl group and order of their bioactivity was iodo > chloro > methoxy > nitro substituted monoesters against the considered microbes.
