Syntheses of Substituted 1,3,4-Oxadiazole, 1,3,4-Thiadiazole and 1,2,4-Triazole Derivatives as Potential Antimicrobial Agents

Abstract

A series of 2-(4-nitro-1-imidazolylmethyl)-1,3,4-oxadiazole, 1,3,4-triazole and 3-(4-nitro-1-imidazolylmethyl)-1,2,4-triazole derivatives were synthesized and tested for their antimicrobial activity. Some of the tested compounds were active against Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Bacillus subtilis, Clostridium difficile, Aspergillus niger and Cryptococcus neoformans.
