A series of 1-(2-hydroxy-aryl)-3-(5-nitro-thiophen-2-yl)-propenones were synthesized by Claisen-Schmidt condensation by 2-hydroxy acetophenes with 5-nitro-thiophene-2-carbaldehyde under both conventional and microwave irradiation methods. All the compounds were characterized by spectral data such as IR, 1 H NMR, 13C NMR and Mass spectrometry. The antimicrobial activities of 5-nitrothiophene-chalcones have been assessed by evaluating the zone of inhibition required to inhibit the growth of Escherichia coli, Klebsiella, Staphylococcus aureus and Basillus.
