Some azo compounds (1a-e) were synthesized by simple diazotization reaction of five different substituted aromatic amines using sodium nitrite and hydrochloric acid followed by coupling with 4-hydroxybenzaldehyde in alkaline medium. Synthesized azo compounds have been confirmed by UV, IR and 1H NMR spectral data and also screened for their antibacterial activity using disc diffusion method.
