Antimicrobial, crown gall tumor inhibitory and cytotoxicity assays of N-[(1-methyl-1H-indole-3-yl)methylene]amines synthesized by an improved protocol.


The present paper reports an easy preparation of imines of N-methyl-1H-indole-3-carboxaldehyde by its condensation with alkyl and aromatic amines in ethanol without using any catalyst or dehydrating agent. The compounds have been screened for their antibacterial, antifungal, crown gall tumor inhibitory, and cytotoxic activities. As a major finding some of… (More)
