Author(s): Ahmet Cagri Karaburun, Nalan Gundogdu-Karaburun, Umit Ucucu, Seref Demirayak.


In this study, some aryl naphtho[2,1-b]furan-2-yl ketoximes and their ethers and esters were synthesised. The structure elucidation of the compounds was performed by IR, 1H-NMR and MASS spectroscopic data and elemental analyses results. Antifungal activities of the compounds were tested against Candida albicans (two strains), Candida glabrata, Candida tropicalis and Candida parapsilosis using a microbroth dilution technique. The results showed that the compounds displayed minimum inhibitory concentrations, 7.8-625 µ g/mL.
