Abstract: Four series of bis-quaternary jV,yV'-bis(alkyldimethyl)-3-X- 1,5-penta­nediammonium dibromides (36 compounds) were prepared. The effect of alkyl chain length change, from 6 to 18 carbon atoms and of the isosteric exchange of methylene group for NCH3, O, S upon characteristic vibrations in IR spectrum region and upon antimicrobial activity against Staphylococ­cus aureus, Escherichia coli, and Candida albicans was examined and de­ scribed. The relationship of antimicrobial activity vs. R shows a nonlinear parabolic course; by isosteric exchange the effectiveness is not affected. The most effective substances are several times more active than the standard benzyldodecyldimethylammonium bromide.
