Coordination polymers have been investigated for their physical characteristics, chemical properties and biological activities. Polymeric-Schiff bases are widely being used in hydrometallurgy, bioinorganic systems and in the different field of nanotechnology. Also, polymeric macromolecules can be used as antibacterial agents. In this study,threenovel polymer- bound Schiff bases were synthesized from condensation reaction of (4-formyl-3-methoxyphenoxymethyl)polystyrene and 2-aminophenol/2-amino-4-chlorophenol/2-amino-4-methylphenol. The polymer-supported Schiff bases were characterized by means of elemental analyses, FTIR, UV-vis, 1 H-NMR. The biological activities of synthesized compounds were investigated against some gram-positive bacteria ( Bacillus cereus sp., Listeria monocytogenes 4b, Micrococcus luteus, Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermis ) with some gram-negative bacteria ( Brucella abortus, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas putida sp., Shigella dysenteria type 10, Salmonella typhi H ) and yeast ( Candida albicans ) by the well-diffusion method. The synthesized compounds showed a good antimicrobial activity. These modified polymers can be suggested as antibacterial materials in medicinal applications.
