The occurrence of Multi Drug Resistant (MDR) infectious microbial strains has been increased upto alarming level which affects the public health worldwide. To cure this problem, a library of s-triazinyl derivatives comprising schiff base or chalcone motif have been rationalized, synthesized and screened for their in vitro antibacterial activity against five bacterial strains (Staphylococcus aureus MTCC 96, Bacillus subtilis MTCC 441, Escherichia coli MTCC 739, Pseudomonas aeruginosa MTCC 741 and Klebsiella pneumoniae MTCC 109) and four fungal strains (Aspergillus niger MTCC 282, Aspergillus fumigates MTCC 343, Aspergillus clavatus MTCC 1323, Candida albicans MTCC 183) using broth dilution technique. All the newly synthesized scaffolds were further evaluated for their in vitro anti-TB efficacy against the tubercular strain (Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv) using Lowenstein-Jensen MIC method. All the derivatives were well characterized by IR, 1H NMR, 13C NMR, elemental analysis as well as mass spectroscopy.
