The antifungal activity, measured as minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of selected a-substituted acetophenones, showed a linear correlation with the computed enolization energies (DEenolization). This suggested that keto?enol tautomerization plays a significant role in the action mechanism of these a-substituted acetophenones. In order to corroborate this conclusion, two related compounds were synthesized which could not undergo keto?enol tautomerization. Their bioassay proved them to be completely inactive.
