Synthesized heterocyclic compounds were
... c compounds were duly characterized by physico chemical parameters, 1 H-NMR, 13 C-NMR and FT-IR spectral features. Schiff bases 3a-h have been synthesized from 4-(naphthalen-2-yl)thiazol-2-amine 1 and various aromatic aldehydes 2a-h. All novel synthesized compounds 4a-h and 5a-h were evaluated for their antibacterial activity against various Gram positive bacterial strains e.g. Bacillus subtilis [BS] and Staphylococcus aureus [SA] and Gram negative bacterial strains e.g. Salmonella typhimurium [ST] and Escherichia coli [EC]. Growth inhibition was compared with the standard drug ciprofloxacin. Antifungal activity was also carried out against different fungal strains e.g. Penicillium expansum [PE], Botryodiplodia theobromae [BT], Nigrospora sp. [NS], Trichothesium sp. [TS]. The antifungal drug, Ketoconazole was used as a positive control. Compounds 4a-h found less active as compare to compound 5a-h.
