Aim and Objective: Microwave-assisted condensation of acetophenone 1 and aromatic aldehydes 2 gave chalcone analogs 3, which were cyclized to pyrazole derivatives 6a-f via the reaction with hydrazine hydrate and oxalic acid in the presence of the catalytic amount of acetic acid in ethanol.

Materials and Methods: The structural features of the synthesized compounds were characterized by melting point, FT-IR, 1H, 13C NMR and elemental analysis.

Results: The antibacterial activities of the synthesized pyrazoles were evaluated against three gram-positive bacteria, such as Enterococcus durans, Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis and two gram-negative bacteria such as Escherichia coli and Salmonella typhimurium.

Conclusion: All the synthesized pyrazoles showed relatively high antibacterial activity against S. aureus strain, and none of them demonstrated antibacterial activity against E. coli.

Keywords: Pyrazole; Chalcone; Microwave Assisted; Antibacterial; FT-IR; 1H NMR and 13C NMR.
