The amides 8a-e and 10a-c were prepared as chromogenic aminopeptidase substrates. A range of microorganisms were grown in the presence of these compounds and coloured colonies were produced in several cases after addition of acetic acid-thus giving potential methods for the detection of aminopeptidase activity and for microorganism identification.
