Bacterial evolution has been amplified due to overuse of currently available antibiotics. This has resulted in drug resistance and multiple-drug resistance in bacterial species. It is because of this that the testing of newly synthesized antimicrobial agents is of interest. In this study two new derivatives of 1,10-phenanthroline were synthesized and fully characterized. These compounds were then tested for their antimicrobial ability against E.coli, P. aeruginosa and S. aureus.
