Synthesis of Mercapto Heterocyclic Derivatives of 1-(4-((4-Chlorophenyl)(phenyl)methyl)piperazin-1-yl)-2-thio-propan-1-one and its Biological Activities


In the present study, a new series of mercapto heterocyclic derivatives of 1-(4-((4-chlorophenyl)(phenyl)methyl)piperazin-1-yl)-2-thio-propan-1-one derivatives are synthesized. The chemical structures were confirmed by IR, 1H-NMR and mass spectral analysis. The compounds were screened for antibacterial and antifungal activity. It shows good antibacterial and antifungal activity for most of synthesized compounds.
