Abstract

A series of novel o-hydroxy anilide derivatives and 1-substituted-1,3-dicyclohexylurea analogs of long chain carboxylic acids have been synthesized. The structures of the synthesized compounds were elucidated by IR, (1)H NMR, (13)C NMR and mass spectral data. All the synthesized compounds were tested for their antimicrobial activity by disk diffusion assay with slight modifications against Gram-positive, Gram-negative strains of bacteria as well as fungal strains. After that minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs), minimum bactericidal concentrations (MBCs) and minimum fungicidal concentrations (MFCs) of all the synthesized compounds were determined. The investigation of antimicrobial screening data revealed that all the tested compounds showed moderate to good microbial inhibitions. Compounds 3e, 4e, 3f and 4f were found to be the most potent antimicrobial agents.
