A facile synthesis of novel nitrogen-sulphur heterocycles containing the amidino moiety and their antimicrobial activity ľ Part I

IPC: Int.Cl.7 C 07 D 285/01 

// A 61 P 31/04, 06

The interaction of amidinothiocarbamide 1 and 4 - bromo- 1,3 - substituted-pyrazol-5-ones 2 afford 2-guanidino-4, 6-substituted-pyrazolo [5,4-d]thiazoles 5 which on treatment with aldehydes yield the corresponding schiff's bases 6. The corresponding schiff’s bases  6 are also obtained by an alternate unambiguous one step synthesis. Similarly, the reaction of 1 with diethyl bromomalonate to afford fused ring heterocycles has been studied in detail. Certain compounds synthesized exhibit antimicrobial and antitubercular activity.
