With an intention to synergise the antibacterial activity of chalcones and oxazolidinones, several hybrid compounds possessing both chalcone and oxazolidinone moieties were synthesized and tested for antibacterial activity. The hybrid molecules containing heterocycles instead of aromatic ring were found to be active. A SAR study with various heterocycles(More)
Novel oxazolidinone antibacterials containing N-hydroxyacetamidine moiety are synthesized with the diversity at C-5 terminus. These compounds have been evaluated against a panel of clinically relevant gram-positive and gram-negative pathogens. Most of the analogs in this series displayed activity superior to Linezolid and in vivo efficacies of selected(More)
A series of conformationally constrained analogues of Linezolid were synthesised by employing a tandem SN(2) and SNAr reaction as the key step and tested for antibacterial activity. While the hexahydroazolo-quinoxaline compounds were inactive, the tetrahydroazolo-benzothiazine compounds exhibited interesting antibacterial activity. The introduction of(More)
In an effort to discover potent antibacterials based on the entropically favored "bioactive conformation" approach, we have designed and synthesized a series of novel tricyclic molecules mimicking the conformationally constrained structure of the oxazolidinone antibacterial, Linezolid 1. The structure 3 obtained by this approach was synthesized and found to(More)
Oxazolidinones exemplified by eprezolid and linezolid are a new class of antibacterials that are active against Gram positive and anaerobic bacteria including methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus epidermidis (MRSE) and vancomycin resistant enterococci (VRE). In an effort to have a better antibacterial(More)
In an effort to discover potent antibacterials based on the entropically favored 'bioactive conformation' approach, a series of novel tricyclic molecules mimicking the conformationally constrained structure of Linezolid is reported. Based on the initial tricyclic molecule 1, the benzazepine derivative 2 was designed where the tricyclic structure had more(More)
Some novel oxazolidinone derivatives with benzotriazole as pendant have been synthesized and tested for antibacterial activity. Linearly attached benzotriazole derivative showed more potency compared to angular one in vitro. Out of E/Z-isomers of angularly attached derivatives E-isomer was found to be more potent than Z-isomer. Either less active or(More)
The aim of this study was to determine the bioavailability of a novel oxazolidinone, DRF-6196, in mice and rats followingintravenous (i.v) and oral dosing and to compare the pharmacokinetics with those obtained following linezolid dosing. Blood samples were drawn at predetermined intervals up to 24 h post-dose after either DRF-6196 or linezolid(More)
The influence of an ethylene-oxy spacer element between the heterocycle and the aromatic ring in linezolid is reported. The introduction of such spacer group generated compounds with inferior antibacterial activity. However, the conversion of the acetamide group present in the linezolid analogues to either thiocarbamate or thioacetamide functionality(More)
