Ten N-aryl-N-benzylamines were synthesized and evaluated for their antifungal activity, which was compared with their homoallylamine analogues that possessed an allyl group in the carbon next to the nitrogen atom. Results indicated that the absence of the allyl group caused an enhancement of the antifungal activity which could be correlated with the flexibility of the alkyl chain between both aromatic groups. DFT calculations supported these differences in activity.
