A new series of 2-iminothiazolidin-4-ones and thiazolidin-2,4-diones were designed and synthesized. The target compounds were evaluated for antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory activities, aiming to find a candidate carrying dual activities. The antibacterial activity was determined by cup-diffusion technique and NCCLS broth dilution method. The MICs were determined using 96-well microtitre plates, while the anti-inflammatory activity was determined using carrageenan- induced rat paw edema model. The results revealed that target compounds showed no antifungal activity towards tested Fungi, whereas the antibacterial activity was mainly on Gram-positive bacteria. The anti-inflammatory activity was observed in compounds belonging to the thiazolidin-2,4-dione series. The structures of the newly synthesized compounds were confirmed by physical and spectral data.

Keywords:: 2-iminothiazolidin-4-ones, anti-inflammatory, antimicrobial, synthesis, thiazolidin-2,4-diones.

I am completely satisfied with the service I received from Bentham Science Publishers, right from the submission of our research paper in ‘Open Chemistry’ to its publication in the journal. The reviewers' and editor's comments were very helpful in improving the paper.

I take this opportunity to express my appreciation to the whole team of BSP!
