The antifungal activity of salicylaldehyde-o-phenylenediimine, a derivative of Schiff base, was studied in vitro against various species of fungi, especially dermatophytes. The antifungal tests were performed according to the tube-dilution method, and all subcultures were incubated at room temperature for 14 days. Salicylaldehyde-o-phenylenediimine was effective against Trichophyton mentagrophytes (20 .mu.g/ml), T. rubrum (40 .mu.g/ml), Microsporum canis (6 .mu.g/ml), and Fonsecaea compacta (2 .mu.g/ml).
