3-Substituted pyrrole-2,5-diones were synthesised from mucohalogen acids and the antibacterial activity was subsequently determined in biological assays. The minimum inhibitory concentration and the minimum bactericidal concentration of 2a were determined for a wide range of microorganisms in the low micromolar range. Protein identification using SDS-PAGE and LC/MS/MS demonstrated a partly degradation of OprF-related proteins giving an insight into the underlying mechanism of these novel antibacterial agents.
