Objective: The present work aim to study the spectral and antimicrobial activity for synthesized chalcones

Methods: The synthesized Chalcones were characterized by Physical and spectral methods such as melting point, IR, 1H-NMR and Mass analysis. The synthesized compounds have been screened for their antimicrobial activity.

Results: The biological data showed that compounds III, VII had strong activities against the Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa, but not activity against fungus.

Conclusion: The main purpose to use an easy and useful method to synthesize biologically active chalcone.
