A simple and clean green method was implemented for the preparation of different succinimide derivatives by means of the N-substituted anilines or N-substituted 2-aminopyridines with succinic anhydride with the heating in aqueous medium. The total synthesized 3a-j compounds were evaluated against antibacterial and antifungal species.
