Two ether and one ester derivatives of the 4-nitro-3-hydroxybenzoic acid were synthesized
and characterized. The in vitro antimicrobial and cytotoxic activities of the three novel compounds
were also evaluated. The aromatic derivatives showed antibacterial activity against one of the four microorganisms
tested and two compounds (C8 and NOBA) had a lower IC50 in HeLa cells.
Keywords: Surfactants, cytotoxic activity, antimicrobial activity, aromatic, 4-nitro-3-hidroxybenzoic acid, organic chemistry.
