The Synthesis of 1-Alkyl-3-polyfluoroalkyl- 1,3-dihydrobenzimidazole-2-selenones as Potential Plant Growth Regulators
Keywords:N-polyfluoroalkylazoles, benzimidazole-2-selenones, plant growth regulation
Aim. To synthesize new 1-alkyl-3-polyfluoroalkyl-1,3-dihydrobenzimidazole-2-selenones and study their biological activity as potential plant growth regulators.
Results and discussion. 1-Alkyl-3-polyfluoroalkyl-1,3-dihydrobenzimidazole-2-selenones were obtained from the corresponding 1-alkyl-3-polyfluoroalkylbenzimidazolium iodides by the action of elemental selenium in the presence of a base. The preliminary biological tests for the growth-regulating activity of the compounds obtained were conducted.
Experimental part. The structure of the compounds synthesized was proven by 1H and 19F NMR spectroscopy methods, as well as by the elemental analysis. The biological studies were done on model plants of winter wheat of the “bezosta” variety.
Conclusions. A convenient method for obtaining 1-alkyl-3-polyfluoroalkyl-1,3-dihydro-benzimidazole-2-selenones has been developed. Biological studies have shown that the compounds synthesized have a diverse effect on the plant growth.
