Efficacy of some triazoles and pyrimidine-2-one compounds against Chaetomium, Cunninghamella and Memnoniella found in deteriorating jute fibres
Shalu Mishra*, Nisha Misra
ABSTRACT: Six organic compounds (triazoles and pyrimidine-2-ones) were tested for fungitoxicity for the first time against Chaetomium globosum, C. indicum, Cunninghamella echinulata, Memnoniella echinata, and M. subsimplex, which were found to be frequently responsible for the deterioration of jute fibres during storage. Two of the pyrimidine-2-one compounds exhibited a fungicidal nature and the lowest minimum inhibitory concentration against all the test fungi. These chemicals also prevented the appearance of test fungi on the surface of treated jute fibre and showed broad fungitoxic spectra. The compounds were characterized by their physico-chemical properties and spectral analysis.
