Synthesis and Evaluation of Fatty Hydrazides Based on Schiff Bases from Oil Processing Industries Byproducts

Document Type: Research Paper



Schiff bases of fatty acid hydrazides made from Oil recovered from spent bleaching earth (ORSBE) and Acid oil (AO)were prepared. These newly synthesized Schiff bases were characterized on the basis of FT-IR, elemental analysis and evaluated for biological performance. Schiff bases exhibited mild antibacterial activities against certain micro-organisms if compared with streptomycin used as standard antibacterial agent and imidil used as a standard antifungal agent.
