Schiff’s bases are obtained on heating an aldehydes with aromatic amine in presence of glacial acetic acid. These are the compounds containing characteristic –HC=N– group. Aryl amino methyl derivatives of heterocyclic compounds to synthesize by selective reduction of schiff’s bases (imine group) with sodiumborohydride in controlled experimental condition. Schiff’s base of N-Aryl-1-[6-methyl-2-(4-methylphenyl)imidazo[1,2-a]pyridin-3-yl]methanimines & Aryl amines of N-Aryl-1-[6-methyl-2-(4-methylphenyl)imidazo[1,2-a]pyridin-3-yl]methanamines were prepared. Their chemical structures were confirmed by means of IR, NMR, Mass data and by elemental analysis. All of the synthesized compounds were tested for their antibacterial and antifungal activity.
