Six different ortho-disubstituted disulfides were synthesized and evaluated in wheat coleoptiles bioassays. The most active ones were evaluated on seeds of four different plant species (Solanum lycopersicum L., Lolium rigidum Gaudin, Echinochloa crus-galli (L.) Beauvois, and Urochloa decumbens (Stapf) R. D. Webster) to evaluate their effects on the germination and plant growth, presenting, in general, higher activity than the model herbicide Logran. The results shown in this study indicate that these compounds are potential candidates as herbicide leads for weed control in agriculture.
