The hydrazide of 2-(6-methoxy α-naphthyl)-propionic acid (Naproxen) was converted to the Schiff's bases which in turn on reacting with aryl and aryloxy acetyl chlorides yielded the corresponding azetidin-2-ones (4-a-c and 5 a-t). Representative compounds screened for antitubercular activity were proved to be equipotent with streptomycin.
