Synthesis and biological screening of novel derivatives of 3-(N-substituted carboxamidoethyl­thio)-(4H)-1,2,4-triazoles


3-Mercapto-(4H)-1,2,4-triazole has been synthesized from
1-formylthiosemicarbazide. Different N-substituted β-chloro­propionamides have been prepared by reacting substituted amines with β-chloropropionylchloride. Different N-sub­stituted β-chloropropionamides have been condensed with 3-mercapto-(4H)-1,2,4-triazole in basic medium to obtained various 3-(N-substituted carboxamidoethylthio)-(4H)-1,2,4-triazoles.
