Abstract:

Background: A series of novel 2,6-dichloro-4-(trifluoromethyl)phenyl)-3-(difluoromethyl)- 1H-pyrazole-4-carboxamide derivatives were designed and synthesized.

Methods: All the title compounds were confirmed by 1H NMR and MS.

Results and Conclusion: The primarily nematicidal activity results indicated that some of them exhibited moderate control efficacy against the tomato root-knot nematode disease caused by Meloidogyne incognita.

Keywords: Difluoromethylpyrazole, alkyl chain, nematicidal activity, synthesis, docking, Meloidogyne incognita.
