In an attempt to afford possible antibacterial and anti-human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) agents, a series of 22 novel styryl quinazoline-based heterocyclic entities were designed and synthesized. Various substituted aryl urea and thiourea cores were incorporated at position 4 of quinazoline, followed by styrylation of position 2, aiming at an augmented biological potential. The synthesized compounds were well characterized through IR, (1) H NMR, (13) C NMR and elemental analyses. All compounds were screened for their in vitro anti-HIV activity against the HIV-1 (IIIB) and HIV-2 (ROD) strains. The antibacterial activity was also evaluated against various pathogenic Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacterial strains.
