Abstract

Imidazole analogues of fluoxetine have been obtained by replacing the methylamino terminus of aminopropane chain with the imidazole ring. The newly designed imidazoles showed potent anti-Candida activity, superior to those of miconazole and other antifungal agents of clinical interest. 1-(4-Chlorophenyl)-1-(2,4-dichlorophenoxy)-3-(1H-imidazol-1-yl)propane (16), the most active among test imidazoles, was about 2-fold more active and as much less cytotoxic than miconazole. High increase of activity was observed with methyl, nitro, fluorine, and chlorine (Cl > F > CH(3) > NO(2) > CF(3)).
