Abstract

In this study, antimicrobial effect of p-bromophenylselenocyanate and p-nitrophenylselenocyanate were investigated against three strains of bacteria and one yeast. Antimicrobial effects were examined in 1 mg/mL concentrations of these compounds. Antimicrobial effects of p-bromophenylselenocyanate and p-nitrophenylselenocyanate were observed on the bacterial and yeast strain in the studied concentration. When the p-bromophenylselcnocyanate and p-nitrophenylsclenocyanate are compared with some antibiotics, it is seen that these compounds have the same antimicrobial effect as some other antibiotics.
