Pyrrole-Based Hydrazones Synthesized and Evaluated In Vitro as Potential Tuberculostatics
Twelve pyrrole hydrazones were synthesized and evaluated in vitro as inhibitors of Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv with IC50 and IC90 to 5.92 μg/ml and 9.37 μg/ml respectively. The most active 12d (ethyl 5-(4-chlorophenyl)- 2-methyl-1-(4-(2-((5-nitrofuran-2-yl)methylene)hydrazinyl)-4-oxobutyl)-1H-pyrrole-3-carboxylate) has IC90 value of 9.372 μg/ml. The derived second order QSAR model favors moderate molecular surfaces in a combination with electronaccepting substituents in the aromatic hydrazone moiety.
