Determination of antimicrobial activity of some 1,2,4-triazole derivatives

Keywords: derivatives of 1,2,4-triazole; Trifuzol; Avistim; antibacterial activity; antiviral activity


We carried out MIC of the derivatives of 1,2,4-triazole II (4-((5-nitrofuran-2-yl)methyleneamino)-1-propyl-4H-1,2,4-triazolium bromide) and I (N-((5-nitrofuran-2-yl)methylene)-4H-4-amino-1,2,4-triazolidium chloride) against Escherichia coli ATCC 3912/4 and E. coli k88ad, Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 25923 and S. aureus k99, Klebsiella pneumonia k56 and Salmonella typhimurium 144, S. enteritidis. All test cultures were sensitive to compound II at concentrations of 1,25–0,039 μg/ml. Similar MIC (0,039 μg/ml) of compounds II and I were set for E. coli k88a and S. aureus k99 test cultures – 0,156 μg/ml. Only S. aureus ATCC 25923 and K. pneumonia k56 had sensitivity to ceftriaxone (MIC = 0,097 μg/ml). Antiviral activity of Trifuzol (piperidine 2-[5-(furan-2-il)-4-phenil-1,2,4-triazol-3-ilthio]acetate) and avistim (morpholines 3-(4-pyridyl)-1,2,4-triazolil-5-thioacetate) against the chicken infectious bronchitis virus (VIB) strain 4/91 was characterized by a decrease in mortality and pathological changes of chicken embryos (CE) which were induced by the virus. Death of infected CE provoked by the strain 4/91 of VIB in dilution 10–3 occurred at 57.1%. The reduction in the percentage of deaths of CE infected by the virus in dilution 10–3 in the presence of Avistim was 28.6%, and with Trifuzol 14.3%. The use of avistim and Trifuzol compounds reduced VIB infectious activity when it was cultivated in CE, reducing the titre of the virus (strain 4/91) by 3 lg EID 50 cm–3.
