Abstract 02 V1 I2

A series of nine 2-Chlormethyl-benzomimidazole derivatives were synthesized in appreciable yield. The structures of the synthesized derivatives were confirmed by IR and 1H-NMR spectra. All of these derivatives were screened for their antimicrobial activity against Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis (Gram positive) and Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa (Gram negative) and showed good to moderate antimicrobial activity as compared to standard drug streptomycin.

Key words: Antimicrobial activity, carbonyl compounds, benzomimidazole, 2-Chlormethyl-benzomimidazole.
