Abstract– A series of 2-aminophenols including methoxy group were synthesized using appropriate synthetic route. The structures of the compound were determined with spectroscopic techniques and analytical methods. IR spectra of the compounds including and not including hydrogen bonding were compared. The compounds 2 and 4 show the characteristic UV bands attributed to the NH-forms. On the other hand, antibacterial and antifungal activities of the compounds were investigated. Most of the compounds show selective activity toward Staphylococcus epidermidis and Candida albicans.
