A series of hybrid of 4-aminoquinoline and fluorinated pyridine derivatives were synthesized and their chemical structure were confirmed by 19F-NMR, 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR and FT-IR. All compounds were tested against one Gram-positive and one Gram-negative bacteria to assess their in vitro antibacterial activity. Compounds 10a, 10b, 11a and 12b showed moderate antibacterial activity against Gram-positive bacterium, Staphylococcus aureus.
