(Chemical Equation Presented) In this study, a series of novel furyl and benzimidazole substituted benzyl ethers were synthesized and evaluated for antibacterial and antifungal activities against S. aureus, Methicillin resistant S. aureus (MRSA), E. coli, C. albicans and C. krusei. Compound 6f and 6h exhibited the most potent anti-bacterial activity with lowest MIC values of 3.12 μg/mL against S aureus and MRSA, respectively.
