The present article describes a series of eleven N-(alkyl)-2-thiophen-2-ylacetamides, which were synthesized and evaluated for their in vitro antibacterial activity against Mycobacterium tuberculosis, and the activity expressed as the minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) in μgmL. . The compounds 3g and 3k exhibited the respective activities of 25 and 50 μg/mL being a new class of compounds against tuberculosis.
