Article title

Synthesis and antimicrobial activity of new adamantane derivatives I.

Title variants
Languages of publication
A series of fourteen derivatives of adamantane was synthesised. The new compound 4-(adamant-1-ylmethoxycarbonyl)phthalanhydride obtained from 1-adamantane- methanol and trimellitic anhydride chloride appeared very useful for preparation of a number of N-substituted phthalimides. Antimicrobial activity of the newly obtained derivatives such as, for example, 4-(adamant-1-ylmethoxycarbonyl)-N-(5-carboxypentamethylene)phthalimide or 4-(adamant-1-ylmethoxycarbonyl)-N-(L-alanyl)phthalimide was tested against Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus sp., Micrococcus flavus and Enterococcus faecium. The minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) for these compounds against S. aureus were 0.022 and 0.05 μg/ml, respectively.
