[0025] Among the compounds of the present invention or salts thereof, those having a low HDAC4 inhibitory activity are preferred. Because HDAC exhibits multiple actions, inhibitors thereof are expected to be used as anti-cancer agents or the like. Because of the multiple actions thereof, however, possible nonselective inhibition or excessive inhibition may result in various toxicities such as teratogenicity as literature (Haberland M. et al., Nat. Rev. Genet., 2009, 10, 32-42 and Erminio G. et al., Current Pharmaceutical Design, 2014, Vol.20, No.00) describes.

[0026]  Various compounds of the present invention can be produced by the following production methods, for example, but a production method of the present compounds is not limited thereto.

Production method 1

[0029] Step [a]: A step for producing a compound represented by the general formula (1-1) by reducing a compound represented by the general formula (3).

[0030] Step [b]: A step of producing a compound represented by the general formula (1-2) by reacting a compound represented by the general formula (1-1) with a compound represented by the general formula (2).

Production method in Step [a]

[0052] The present inventive agrohorticultural fungicide can also be used in combination, or systematically, with such technologies.

[0053] In order to control various diseases, the present inventive agrohorticultural fungicide is applied to the plants on which emergence of the diseases is expected, either as it is or in the form of a dilution or suspension in a proper quantity of water or the like at a dosage effective for the control of the diseases. For instance, with the aim of controlling the appearance of diseases on fruit trees, cereals and vegetables, the composition may be directly used for foliage treatment or the composition may also be used for seed treatments such as immersion of seeds in the agent solution, seed coating, calper treatment or the like or absorption from the root by soil treatment or the like, such as incorporation into total soil layer, row treatment, soil incorporation, cell seedling treatment, prickling-in-hole treatment, plant foot treatment, top dressing, nursery box application of rice, submerged application or the like. In addition, application of t the present inventive agrohorticultural insecticide to the nutrient solution in the water culture, the use by fumigation, and the injection into tree stalks or the like are also usable.

[0054] Furthermore, the present inventive agrohorticultural fungicide may be used as it is or with appropriate dilution with water or the like, or in suspension, in an amount effective for disease control to a site where occurrence of the disease is expected.

[0055] As the method of treating seeds, a method of dipping seeds in a diluted or undiluted liquid preparation of the liquid or solid composition and thereby making the agent permeate into the seeds; a method of mixing a solid or liquid preparation with seeds for the sake of powder coating and thereby making the agent adhere to the seed surface; a method of mixing the preparation with an adhesive carrier such as resin, polymer or the like and coating seeds with such an adhesive mixture; a method of spraying the preparation to the neighborhood of seeds simultaneously with planting or the like can be referred to.

[0056] "Seed" to be treated with the seed treatment means a plant body of the initial stage of cultivation used for reproduction of plants, encompassing not only the seeds but also plant bodies for nutrient reproduction such as bulb, tuber, seed tuber, stock bud, aerial tuber, scaly bulb or stalks for cuttage or the like.

[0057] "Soil" or "cultivation carrier" for plants in carrying out the using method of the present invention means a support for the cultivation of a plant, in particular, a support in which the roots grow; their material quality is not limited, any material being acceptable as far as the plant can grow therein. For example, so-called soils, nursery mat, water or the like can be used, specific examples for the material being sand, pumice, vermiculite, diatomaceous earth, agar, gelatinous materials, polymeric materials, rock wool, glass wool, wood chips, bark or the like.

[0058] As the method for spraying onto foliage parts of crops or the like, spraying a liquid formulation such as an emulsifiable concentrate, flowable agent or the like or a solid formulation such as a wettable powder or wettable granule or the like having properly been diluted with water, spraying a dust, or fumigation or the like can be referred to.

[0059] As the method of soil application, applying a liquid preparation either diluted with water or undiluted onto the plant foot, nursery bed for raising seedlings or the like, spraying granules onto the plant foot or nursery bed, spraying a dust, a wettable powder, a wettable granule or granules onto the soil and mixing with the whole soil either before seeding or before transplantation, spraying a dust, wettable powder, wettable granule, granules or the like onto planting holes, planting rows or the like can be recited.

[0060] As the method for applying to a nursery box of paddy field rice, even though the preparation form may be varied depending on the time of application such as application at the sowing period, greening period or transplanting period, applying in the form of a dust, wettable granule, granules or the like can be recited. Application by mixing with the soil is also possible, which application is mixing with soil and a dust, wettable granule or granules, examples thereof being mixing into the bed soil, covering soil or whole soil. Further possible method is application by merely making the soil and various formulations into layers.

[0061] For applying to a paddy field, usually to a paddy field in a submerged state, a solid preparation such as a jumbo-pack, granules, wettable granules or the like or a liquid formulation such as a flowable, emulsifiable concentrate or the like are sprinkled. Otherwise, it is also possible to sprinkle or inject an appropriate agent as it is or in the form of a mixture with fertilizers into the soil at the time of transplantation. Further possible is applying chemical solution of an emulsifiable concentrate to the water inlet or water flow source of the irrigating system, whereby a labor-saving application is achieved with water supplied.

[0062] In case of upland field crops, application to the cultivation carrier surrounding the seeds or plant bodies in the period from the seeding to the seedling raising is available. For plants where seeds are directly sown to the field, in addition to direct application to seeds, application onto the base of hills during the cultivation period is preferable. Sprinkling granules or irrigating with a liquid formulation after dilution with water or without dilution or the like is possible. Another preferable treatment is to mix granules with cultivation carriers before seeding and to sow seeds thereafter.

[0063] In cases where cultured plants to be transplanted are treated at the seeding time or in the seedling raising period, in addition to direct treatment onto seeds, irrigating treatment onto a seedling raising bed with a liquefied form or to sprinkling granules are preferable. Further, applying granules to the planting holes at the time of set-planting or mixing into the cultivation carrier in the neighborhood of the sites of transplantation are also preferable treatment.
