oa South African Journal of Chemistry - Synthesis and biological evaluation of some novel 2-mercaptobenzothiazoles carrying 1,3,4-oxadiazole, 1,3,4-thiadiazole and 1,2,4-triazole moieties : research article



Several 2-mercaptobenzothiazole derivatives containing 1,3,4-oxadiazoles, 1,2,4-triazoles and 1,3,4-thiadiazoles at the second position were synthesized. Some of these synthesized compounds were evaluated for their analgesic, anti-inflammatory, acute toxicity and ulcerogenic actions. Some of the tested compounds showed significant analgesic and anti-inflammatory activities. Two of the compounds showed significant gastrointestinal protection compared to the standard drug diclofenac sodium. The compounds were also tested for their antimicrobial activity with most displaying selective activity against the Gram-negative bacteria . In the present investigation the tested compounds did not possess antifungal activity.
