A number of levofloxacin analogues carrying a 2-aryl-2-oxoethyl or a 2-aryl-2-oxyiminoethyl moiety attached to the piperazine ring at C-10 position have been prepared and evaluated as antibacterial agents against a series of Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. Some of them exhibited significant inhibitory activity against Gram-positive bacteria.
