Objective: The objective of this study was to synthesize phenylcinnamamide (substituted acetanilide chalcone) derivatives linked to aspirin and ibuprofen with potential antibacterial and antifungal activity.Methods: Substituted acetanilide compounds were reacted with different arylaldehydes through Claisen-Schmidt condensation in the presence of KOH. They formed differently substituted acetanilide chalcones (1a-e) which are linked to aspirin and ibuprofen through an ester linkage to form

An antibacterial evaluation was achieved for Gram-positive bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus) and Gram-negative bacteria (Escherichia coli) and antifungal for Candida albicans.Conclusion: Compounds (2a-j) have shown intermediate antimicrobial activity against different strains of microorganisms.
