Isoindole and benzoisoindole derivatives of ristocetin aglycon have been prepared by reaction with o-phthalaldehyde or naphthalene-2,3-dialdehyde and various thiols. The new compounds exhibited potent antibacterial and anti-influenza virus activity. The cluster forming and fluorescent properties of the aglycon derivatives were also studied.
