Abstract

A series of carboxy-substituted 2-(nitroaryl)benzothiazole derivatives and carboxy-substituted 2-(nitroaryl)benzoxazole derivatives were prepared and evaluated as potential nitroreductase substrates for the purpose of detecting clinically important microorganisms. Several of the substrates produced highly fluorescent colonies with the majority of a panel of 10 Gram-negative bacteria and also with two of a panel of 8 Gram-positive bacteria.
