"Design and synthesis of new benzofuran-1,2,3-triazole hybrid preservatives and the evaluation of their antifungal potential against white and brown-rot fungi," BioRes. 15(4), 7828-7843.


A series of novel benzofuran-1,2,3-triazole hybrids were synthesized and investigated as fungicidal preservatives. The compounds were evaluated for their antifungal potential against white-rot (Trametes versicolor), dry brown-rot (Poria placenta), and wet brown-rot (Coniophora puteana and Gloeophyllum trabeum) fungi, at different concentrations (500 ppm and 1000 ppm). The tests of the final products (8a, 8b, 8c, 8d, 8e, 8f, and 8g) demonstrated that compound N-((1-(4-fluorobenzyl)-1H-1,2,3-triazol-4-yl)methyl)benzofuran-2-carboxamide (8f) at a concentration of 500 ppm was the most active against wet brown-rot C. puteana (23.86% inhibition) and G. trabeum (47.16% inhibition) fungi. However, testing demonstrated that compounds 8a, 8b, 8c, 8d, and 8g at a concentration of 500 ppm did not exhibit acceptable antifungal effects against white-rot T. versicolor and dry brown-rot P. placenta fungi.
