Graphical Abstract:


Objective: We have synthesized new quinolidinyl-thiazolidinones via Knoevenagel condensation- alkylation reaction, catalyzed by [Et3NH][HSO4]. The present approach offers several advantages such as higher yields, eco-friendly reaction condition and economic availability of the catalyst.

Method: The newly synthesized compounds were evaluated for their in vitro antifungal activity against six fungal strains. Some of the synthesized conjugates displayed good to moderate antifungal activity.

Conclusion: Again, the molecular docking study performed against the fungal sterol 14α-demethylase (CYP51) showed an excellent binding affinity towards the enzyme which could rationalize the promising antifungal activity portrayed by these derivatives and provides a platform for structure based drug design.

Keywords: Antifungal activity, ionic liquid, molecular docking, multicomponent reaction, 2, 4-thiazolidinones, solvent-free reaction.
