With an objective to evaluate the antibacterial activity of triazine derivatives, a series of 2,4,6-trisubstituted- 1,3,5-triazine were synthesized and characterized by FTIR, 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR, mass spectroscopy and elemental analysis. The minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of the compounds that displayed favourable zone of inhibition was determined by broth microdilution method. Derivatives with morpholinyl substituent (4a and 4i) demonstrated good in vitro activities against Gram-positive organisms, whereas two of the compound bearing a diethylamino side chain exhibited moderate (4e) to broad spectrum (4j) activity comparable to streptomycin. The promising activity of the latter maybe attributed to the substitution of electron releasing group at para position of phenyl rings.
