Abstract
Staphylococcus aureus and methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus (MRSA) have become serious infections in humans and ruminants. S. aureus strains are showing rapid changes to develop resistance in traditional antibiotic-containing systems. In the continuous fierce fight against the emergent multi-drug resistant bacterial strains, straightforward and scalable synthetic procedures to produce new active molecules are in demand. Analysis of molecular properties points to degraded limonoids as promising candidates. In this article, we report a simple synthetic approach to obtain degraded limonoid analogs as scaffolds for new antibacterial molecules. The minimum inhibitory concentrations against S. aureus were evaluated for the stereoisomer mixtures by the broth microdilution method. Analysis of results showed that the acetylated derivatives were the most active of them all.
