A selected set of 2-aryl- and 2-hetaryl-1-hydroxy-5-(2-the-noyl)benzimidazole 3-oxides (10a-m) was prepared for bioassay via condensation dioxime (8) as catalyzed by perchloric acid. The dioxime (8) was obtained by facile reduction of 5-(2-thenoyl)benzofuroxan (7a) with 1,2-diphenylhydrazine. The furoxans (7a,b) are accessible by pyrolysis of the respective o-nitrophenyl azides (6a,b). Compounds (10a-g) showed a comparable range of in vitro activity against Escherichia coli and Candida albicans (MIC 62.5-125μg/mL).
