Abstract: A series of novel Schiff base derivatives containing 4(3H)-quinazolinone moiety were synthesised and their antibacterial activities against tobacco and tomato bacterial wilts evaluated in vitro. Out of the synthesised compounds, 5g, 5j, 5n, 5m and 5p exhibited excellent antibacterial activities against tobacco bacterial wilt, with half maximal effective concentrations (EC50): 160.34, 158.03, 125.94, 148.09 and 133.67 (all in μg mL−1), respectively, which were better than the EC50 of thiodiazole–copper (216.70 μg mL−1). Compounds 5j, 5n and 5o also showed good antibacterial activities against tomato bacterial wilt, with EC50 of 95.20, 90.03 and 83.21 (all in μg mL−1) respectively, which were better than the EC50of thiodiazole–copper (99.80 μg mL−1). These compounds may prove to be useful as potential antibacterial agents.
Keywords: Schiff base derivatives – 4(3H)-quinazolinone – synthesis – antibacterial activity
