Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


MO theoretical calculations were used with the aim to investigate the electronic properties of a numbe of sulphonylureas 1-8 which are employed as antifeedants. Quantum chemical descriptors [elect on density, molecular electrostatic potential (MEP), the topology of frontie orbitals and reactivity index] were determined for these compounds, aimed both to obtain a deeper insight in thei mechanism of action and to correlate these properties with their activity as inhibitors of ALS synthase.
