Synthesis, structures, and ESI-mass studies of silver(I) derivatives of imidazolidine-2-thiones: Antimicrobial potential and biosafety evaluation. J Inorg Biochem. 2017 Oct 07;178:18-31 Authors: Aulakh JK, Lobana TS, Sood H, Arora DS, Smolinski VA, Duff CE, Jasinski JP Abstract The basic objective of this investigation is to explore potential metallo-organic antimicrobial agents based on silver-heterocyclic-2-thiones. In this respect, a series of silver(I) halide complexes with imidazolidine-2-thiones (L-NR, R=H, Me, Et, Pr(n), Bu(n), Ph), namely, mononuclear [AgX(L-NR)(PPh3)2] (X, R: Cl, Bu, 1; Br, Ph, 7); [AgX(L-NR)3] (Br, Bu, 5; Br, Pr(n), 8) and halogen bridged dinuclear [Ag2(μ-X)2(L-NR)2(PPh3)2] (Cl, Bu(n), 2; Cl, Ph, 3; Cl, Pr(n), 4; Br, Ph, 6) have been synthesized and characterized using modern techniques. The thio-ligands are terminally S-bonded in all the complexes. The in vitro antimicrobial potential and biosafety evaluation of the above complexes as well as that of previously reported analogous silver complexes has been studied against Gram positive bacteria, namely, Staphylococcus aureus (MTCC 740) and Methicillin resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA), Gram negative bacteria Klebsiella pneumoniae (MTCC 109), Salmonella typhimurium (MTCC 98) and a yeast Candida albicans (MTCC 227). Most of the complexes tested have shown significant antimicrobial activity with low values of minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC). Significantly, the activ...

Conclusions/implications While bismuth subsalicylate, and bismuth tribromophenate unbound to Xeroform® demonstrate antimicrobial activity, it appears that Xeroform® dressings do not. The utility of Xeroform® in burn medicine may relate more to use as an impervious dressing than to antimicrobial effect. Donor sites are clean surgical wounds and clean partial thickness burns may have minimal colonization present. In such circumstances, an inactive and impervious dressing may be all that is necessary to promote wound healing. Graphical abstract

ConclusionPKS gene expression indicated β keto‐acyl synthase as one of the important active domains in the biomolecules related to antitumour and antifungal group. The simultaneous identification of the biomolecule (dihydro‐2H‐pyran‐2‐one derivative) was also inferred spectroscopically. Significance and impact of the studyFreshwater cyanobacteria are the prolific producers of secondary metabolite(s) that may act as the antimicrobial drug resource in addition to their much explored marine counterpart.This article is protected by copyright.
