Abstract: Altholactone exhibited the anti-fungal activity with a high MIC value of 128 μg ml−1against Cryptococcus neoformans and Saccharomyces cerevisiae. Fifteen ester derivatives of altholactone 1–15 were modified by esterification and their structures were confirmed by spectroscopic methods. Most of the ester derivatives exhibited stronger anti-fungal activities than that of the precursor altholactone. 3-Bromo- and 2,4-dichlorobenzoates (7 and 15) exhibited the lowest minimal inhibitory concentration (MIC) values against C. neoformans at 16 μg ml−1,while the 4-bromo-, 4-iodo-, and 1-bromo-3-chlorobenzoates (11–13) displayed potent activity against S. cerevisiae with MIC values of 1 μg ml−1. In conclusion, this analysis indicates that the anti-fungal activity of altholactone is enhanced by addition of halogenated benzoyl group to the 3-OH group.|
