© 2015 by Thieme Medical Publishers, Inc.In this study, we aimed to synthesize some new quinoxaline derivatives bearing amide moiety and to evaluate their antimicrobial activity. A set of 16 novel compounds of N-[2,3-bis(4-methoxy/methylphenyl)quinoxalin-6-yl]-substituted benzamide derivatives were synthesized by reacting 2,3-bis(4-methoxyphenyl)-6-aminoquinoxaline or 2,3-bis(4-methylphenyl)-6-aminoquinoxaline with benzoyl chloride derivatives in tetrahydrofuran and investigated for their antimicrobial activity. The structures of the obtained final compounds were confirmed by spectral data (IR, 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR and MS). The antimicrobial activity of the compounds were determined by using the microbroth dilution method. Antimicrobial activity results revealed that synthesized compounds exhibited remarkable activity against Candida krusei (ATCC 6258) and Candida parapsilosis (ATCC 22019).
