Hydroxymethylnitrofurazone presents in vitro activity against Trypanosoma cruzi. The optimization of the synthesis of this compound was performed through a 32 factorial statistical design. Quadratic model produced the best response surface predicting a maximum yield (82%) close to the center design point with a seven hours reaction and a 1:1.5 (NF:K2CO3) ratio.

Keywords: Factorial design, synthesis optimization, hydroxymethylnitrofurazone (NFOH), antichagasic candidate, response surface methodology
