New 2-substituted-phenyl-1H-benzimidazole-5-carboxylic acids (35, 38), ethyl-5-carboxylate (36), -5-carboxamides (37, 39),-5-carboxaldehyde (42), -5-chloro (40), -5-trifluoromethyl (41), and -5-carbonitriles (44-53, 55-67), -6-carbonitrile (54) were prepared and evaluated in vitro against Candida species. The cyano substituted compounds 53, 57, 58 and 61(More)
The incidence of the neuropathological lesions and the severity of the clinical symptoms in multiple sclerosis (MS) are correlated with the amount of the transferred autoreactive T cells. The balance between the T helper 1 (Th1) and T helper 2 (Th2) cytokine phenotypes may affect the activity of the disease in MS patients. Interleukin-10 (IL-10) is a(More)
Some novel 1-methyl-4-(2-(2-substitutedphenyl-1H-benzimidazol-1-yl)acetyl)thiosemicarbazides (16a-20a), 5-[(2-(substitutedphenyl)-1H-benzimidazol-1-yl)methyl]-N-methyl-1,3,4-thiadiazol-2-amines (17b-20b), and 5-[(2-(substitutedphenyl)-1H-benzimidazol-1-yl)methyl-4-methyl-2H-1,2,4-triazole-3(4H)-thiones (16c-20c) were synthesized and tested for antioxidant(More)
Some benzimidazole derivatives namely 1-[(substituted thiocarbamoylhydrazine carbonyl) methyl]-2-phenyl-1H-benzimidazoles (1a-13a), N-[(2-phenylbenzimidazol-1-yl methyl)-[1,3,4]-thiadiazole-2-yl]-substituted phenyl amines (1b-13b) and 5-(2-phenyl benzimidazol-1-yl-methyl)-4-substituted phenyl-4H-1,2,4-triazole-3-thiones (1c-13c) were synthesized, and their(More)
Several 2-(5,5,8,8-tetramethyl-5,6,7,8-tetrahydronaphthalen-2-yl)-1H-benzimidazole-5-carboxamidine analogues were synthesized for their antibacterial and antifungal activities against S. aureus, Methicillin-resistant S. aureus (MRSA), C. albicans, and C. krusei. MIC values of the targeted compounds 43-58 are comparable to those of Fluconazole and(More)
The synthesis and antioxidant evaluation of some novel benzimidazole derivatives (10-24) are described. Antioxidant properties of the compounds were investigated employing various in vitro systems viz., microsomal NADPH-dependent inhibition of lipid peroxidation (LP), interaction of 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) and scavenging of superoxide anion(More)
In this study, we prepared some new oxadiazolyl benzimidazole derivatives and investigated their antioxidant properties by determination of microsomal NADPH-dependent inhibition of lipid peroxidation levels (LP assay) and microsomal ethoxyresorufin O-deethylase activity (EROD assay). Some of these compounds 20, 23 had slightly inhibitory effects (28%) on(More)
A series of 22 benzimidazoles, having several substituents on the azole and benzene nuclei, were prepared and evaluated in vitro for antimicrobial activity. At first 2-chloro or 2-chloromethyl-5(6)-substituted-1H-benzimidazoles were synthesized, which were then substituted at C-2 with several piperazine or piperidine derivatives. The antibacterial activity(More)
Some 6-fluoro-5-substituted-benzimidazole derivatives in which indole and 1,1,4,4-tetramethyl-1,2,3,4-tetrahydro-naphthalene groups were attached to the 2-position of the benzimidazole ring were synthesized and tested for antioxidant properties in vitro. Almost all the synthesized compounds at the 10(-3) M concentrations showed superoxide anion scavenging(More)
Some novel benzimidazole derivatives carrying thiosemicarbazide and triazole moieties at the N1 position were synthesized and their in vitro effects on rat liver microsomal NADPH-dependent lipid peroxidation (LP) levels determined by measuring the formation of 2-thiobarbituric acid reactive substance. The free radical scavenging properties of the compounds(More)
