A series of an easy and efficient route for the synthesis of some new 2-amino-3-cyanopyridine (4a-4i) and 2-methoxy-3-cyanopyridine (5a-5i) derivatives were synthesized through the reaction of various chalcone (3a-3i) with malononitrile in presence of ammonium acetate and sodium methoxide, respectively. The constitutions of the all synthesized compounds have been established by the IR, 1H-NMR, Mass spectral data and Elemental analysis. Furthermore, all the synthesized products were screened for their antimicrobial activity.
