In this study, some substituted phenylhydrazono-1H-tetrazol-5-yl-acetonitriles have been synthesized (2a-o, 2a and 2k are known compounds). The synthesized compounds were characterized by spectroscopic methods [Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR), nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR), mass spectroscopy (MS)]. In addition, antimicrobial activities of synthesized compounds were investigated against Bacillus cereus RSKK 863, Escherichia coli ATCC 3521, Pseudomonas aeruginosa ATCC 2921, and Staphylococcus aureus TP32. These compounds had antimicrobial effect against these bacteria (except for 2l).
