A number of urea derivatives were synthesized and screened for their urease and α-chymotrypsin inhibition effects, whereby one of the compounds, N-4-nitrophenyl-N’-4’-nitrophenylurea (3), showed strong urease inhibition (IC50 = 1.25μM). We found that the same compound is also an efficient α-chymotrypsin inhibitor having an IC50 value of 3.15μM.
