A combined experimental and theoretical investigation has been reported on N-(2-pyridyl)-para-styrene sulfonamide (abbreviated as PSS). This compound synthesized from the reaction of para-styrene sulfonyl chloride and 2- amino pyridine. The PSS was confirmed using FT-IR, 1H-NMR spectroscopy. MEP and HOMO-LUMO analysis of the PSS have been investigated using DFT method. The PSS is investigated against Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia coli. Molecular Docking study is also reported.
