New racemic N-(1-aziridino)-6-flouro-7-(4-methylpiperazin-1-yl)-4(1H)- quinolone-3-carboxylic acids (9a-i) were synthesized and their antibacterial activities were tested against Gram-positive and Gram-negative micro- organisms. According to the MIC, all compounds studied are less active than Ciprofloxacin; two of them (9a,b) have similar activity as Nalidixic acid (1).
