These compounds were evaluated for their in vitro antimicrobial, cytotoxic, and mutagenic activities. The results of the biological activities showed that both compound 3c and 3d exhibited antibacterial and antifungal activities. They showed activity against Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus faecalis, Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa, whereas compound 3d was active against Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus faecalis. They also showed activity against Candida albicans, Zygosaccharomyces rouxii, and Aspergillus niger. Compound 3c was the most active as antifungal agent. None of the tested compounds found to have mutagenic or cytotoxic action. Keywords : SUBSTITUTED CYCLOALKANEPYRAZOLES, SYNTHESIS, ANTIMICROBIAL, CYTOTOXICITY, MUTAGENICITY
