Design, synthesis and herbicidal activity study of aryl 2,6-disubstituted sulfonylureas as potent acetohydroxyacid synthase inhibitors

Design, synthesis and herbicidal activity study of aryl 2,6-disubstituted sulfonylureas as potent acetohydroxyacid synthase inhibitors
A series of sulfonylurea derivatives containing a 2,6-disubstituted aryl moiety were designed, synthesized and evaluated for their herbicidal activities. Most of these compounds showed excellent inhibitory rates against both monocotyledonous and dicotyledonous weeds, especially 10a, 10h and 10i. They exhibited equivalent or superior herbicidal efficiency than commercial chlorsulfuron at the dosage of 15g/ha and the preliminary SAR was summarized. In order to illuminate the molecular mechanism of several potent compounds, their apparent inhibition constant (K i app) of Arabidopsis thaliana acetohydroxyacid synthase (AHAS) were determined and the results confirmed that these compounds were all potent AHAS inhibitors. 10i have a K i app of 11.5nM, which is about 4 times as potent as chlorsulfuron (52.4nM).
