The title compound, 2-(6-methoxynaphthalen-2-yl)propionic acid (1,3-dimethyl­butylidene)hydrazide was synthesized in high yield by the reaction of 2-(6-methoxy­naphthalen-2-yl)propionic acid hydrazide and 4-methylpentan-2-one in PEG 400. This compound was fully characterized by IR, 1H NMR, mass spectra and elemental analysis. The in vitro antibacterial activity of this compound was evaluated against gram positive and gram negative bacteria.
