The series of novel taurine‐derived diarylmethanes and dibenzoxanthenes was synthesized starting from simple commercially available precursors via modular three‐stage approach. All the newly synthesized compounds were screened for in vitro antibacterial and antifungal activity, as well as cytotoxicity towards normal and cancer cell lines. Some of the synthesized compounds exhibited 2‐4‐fold higher activity against S. aureus , E. faecalis and B. cereus compared with Chloramphenicol. In contrast to Chloramphenicol, the tested compounds also showed bactericidal, rather than bacteriostatic effect, which makes them promising candidates for further studies.
