Aryloxyphenoxypropionates (APPs) are a class of herbicides targeting on acetyl-coenzyme A carboxylase (ACCase) in monocot chloroplast. The article presents synthesis of twenty three novel ethyl 2-(4-(pyridin-2-yl-oxy)phenylamino)-propanoates/acetates, and their structures were characterized by 1H NMR, HRMS and X-ray single-crystal diffraction. The herbicidal activities on barnyard grass and rape of the novel compounds were evaluated. Ethyl 2-(4-(5-nitropyridin-2-yloxy)-phenylamino)propanoate (B5) showed almost the same level of herbicidal activity on barnyard grass as commercial herbicide fluazifop-methyl which could become a potential lead compound on weeds.

Key words: ethyl 2-(4-(pyridin-2-yl-oxy)phenylamino)propanoate/acetates, synthesis, herbicidal activity, acetyl-CoA carboxylase
