This paper describes the synthesis and the in vitro antibacterial activity of a series of twelve substituted aryl-2-oxazolines against Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Seven compounds showed activity and two compounds exhibited a minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) of 25 g/mL were not cytotoxic for the host cells in cell viability assay. These results could be a good starting point for the development of new antitubercular lead series based on this family of compounds.
Keywords: 2-oxazolines, tuberculosis, antimycobacterial activity, L-amino acids.
