New analogues of triscatecholate siderophores based on linear or tripodal triamines with or without spacer groups or lipophilic and hydrophilic substituents were synthesized. The catecholate moieties were prepared in OH-forms, as acetylated compounds or masked as 8-methoxycarbonyloxy-2,4-dioxo-1,3-benzoxazine derivatives. Some of the new compounds were active as siderophores tested by growth promotion assays using various Gram-negative bacteria and mycobacteria under iron limitation and by CAS-assay. Structure-activity-correlations have been studied.
