Research involved preparing new compounds from hydroxyquioline with formaldehyde to form P1 and then reacted with benzylalcohol to form P2 reacted chloroaceticacid  and SOCl2 to form P3 and P4   with thiosemicarbazide to form P5 and P2 reacted with benzydehyde to form chalcone reacted with H2O2 to form P8. The compounds were identified via TLC, FTIR 1HNMR and 13CNMR. The measured the antibacterial and antioxidant activity of the prepared compounds, to give high resulte.
