Ethyl 5-hydroxybenzo [α] phenazine-6-carboxylates (IIa, b) were prepared by the condensation of ethyl 1, 4-dihydro-1, 4-dioxo-3-methoxy-2-naphthoate (I) with o-phenylene-diamines. Acylations and alkylations of IIa, b gave the corresponding o-acyl and alkyl compounds (IIIa-k). The reaction of IIa, b with ethanolamine gave β-hydroxyethyl-carboxamides (Va, b). Compound Va was converted into β-chlorinated compound (VIa), whose chlorine was substituted by dialkylamines to give ethylenediamine-type amides (VIIa, b, c). Compounds VIId and VIIe were obtained by the reaction of IIb with dialkylalkylenediamines. Oxidation of IIa, b afforded N-oxides (IXa, b). The antimicrobial activities of all synthetic compounds were tested by paper discagar diffusion assay. Compounds IIId, e, g, VIIa and IXa showed inhibitory activities to T. interdigitale and IXa to C. albicans.
