Synthesis and fungicidal activity of 1,1-diaryl tertiary alcohols.

A series of 1,1-diaryl tertiary alcohols and some of their dehydration derivatives were designed, synthesized and evaluated for their antifungal activities. Some compounds exhibited moderate inhibitory activities against seven plant pathogens at 50μg/mL in vitro, compounds 5g and 7c displayed nearly the same or higher fungicidal activities against some… CONTINUE READING
