Abstract: A series of bis(alkylpyridinium)alkanes with a twelve carbon spacer between the positive charges was synthesised and their antifungal activity has been investigated. Compounds with 2-pentyl, 4-pentyl, 4-hexyl, 4-octyl, 4-propylbenzene, 3,4-dipentyl, 4-(5′-nonyl) and 3-methyl,4-pentyl head groups were the most potent antifungal agents with MICs in the range of 1.4–2.7 μM against reference strains of both Cryptococcus neoformans and Candida albicans.
