Abstract

Perfluoroorganobismuth compounds scanned first time for biological and toxicological activity. They exhibit significant antibacterial activity against pathogenic bacteria viz., Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus, Klebsiela pneumonia and remarkable antifungal activity against Aspergillus flavus and Aspergillus nigar along with insecticidal activity against Periplanata americana, Musca domestica and Spodoptera litura and Tetranychus species of mites. The compounds were found highly active against Spodoptera litura. The studies suggest that these compounds are better biocidal as compared to corresponding phenyl analogues.
