Compounds containing acridine cycle exist in many medicines that have high antimicrobial, antifungal, antitumor, antiviral and other types of bioactivity. Synthesis and study on the bioactivity of new compounds with a variety of substituents contained in acridine the cycle, is essential for the preparation of new medication.

The aim of the work is to develop synthesis methods of 1,8-dioxodecahydroacridines and its dioximes and to study its activity to strains of Staphylococcus aureus (MSSA and BSSA) and Staphylococcus haemolyticus (MRSH).

The derivatives of 1,8-dioxodecahydroacridines and its dioximes obtained by boiling the corresponding 1,8-dioxodecahydroacridines with hydroxylamine in pyridine were used as the test objects. The study of antimicrobial activity of the synthesized compounds was conducted by the agar diffusion test.

It was found that the presence of substitues in derivatives of 1,8-dioxodecahydroacridines has virtually no effect on its antimicrobial properties, while activity of its dioximes increases substantially in the case of absence of any substitutes or the presence of an electron acceptor group in a p-position of the phenyl ring.
