A novel series of 2-azetidinones clubbed with quinazolinone was synthesized using anthranilic acid. All the synthesized compounds were evaluated for their antimicrobial activity against two Gram positive bacterial strains (Bacillus subtilis and Staphylococcus aureus), one Gram negative bacterial strain (Escherichia coli) and two fungal strains (Candida albicans and Aspergillus niger). All the synthesized compounds were also screened for their anticancer activity against human breast cancer cell line, MCF-7. Results of antimicrobial and anticancer study indicate that compounds 12 and 5 (IC50 = 49.52 μM) are the most potent antimicrobial and anticancer agents, respectively.
