Water soluble N-benzyltriazolium or N-benzylimidazolium salt type prodrugs of several highly lipophilic triazole or imidazole antifungals have been synthesized. They were designed to undergo an enzymatic activation followed by a self-cleavage to release a parent drug. The prodrugs such as 16 had enough chemical stability and water solubility for parenteral use and were rapidly and quantitatively converted to the active substance in human plasma.
