KEYWORDS(E)-Chalcone derivatives were synthesized by the Claisen-Schmidt condensation of aromatic aldehydes with methyl ketones. 5-Arylfuran-2-carboxaldehydes (1a-b) were synthesized by Meerwein´s method and condensed with 2-acetylpyrole or 2-acetylfuran to produce the new chalcone derivatives (2a-d). The new chalcones were characterized using FT-IR and GC-MS. The synthesized compounds were also screened against some bacterial species to evaluate their activity as promising antibacterial agents.
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
