The recent discovery of the natural product platensimycin (1) as a new antibiotic lead structure has triggered the synthesis of numerous organic derivatives for structure-activity relationships (SAR) in order to improve the poor in vivo efficacy of 1. The synthesis, characterization, and biological evaluation of the first four ferrocene-containing bioorganometallic compounds based on the platensimycin lead structure are reported herein, namely 3-(4,4-diferrocenoylpentanamido)-2,4-dihydroxybenzoic acid (2), 3-(4,4-diferrocenoylbutanamido)-2,4-dihydroxybenzoic acid (3), 3--2,4-dihydroxybenzoic acid (4), and 3-(4-ferrocenoylbutanamido)-2,4-dihydroxybenzoic acid (5). All new compounds were unambiguously characterized by all common analytical methods, including H-1 and C-13 NMR, mass spectrometry, IR spectroscopy, and elemental analysis. Furthermore, the single-crystal X-ray structures of methyl 4,4-diferrocenoylbutanoate (9), methyl 4,4-diferrocenoylpentanoate (10), 4,4-diferrocenoylpentanoic acid (14), 4,4-diferrocenoylbutanoic acid (15), and 4-(acetylferrocenoyl)butanoic acid (16) were also determined. Among 2-5 and their intermediate carboxylic acids tested, only 3 was found to inhibit selectively the growth of S. aureus Mu50 strain (VISA) at a minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) value of 128 mu g/mL.
