A series of novel 5-alkyl/aryl thiadiazole substituted thiazolidin-4-ones were synthesized by a two-step process. In the first step, 5-alkyl/aryl substituted 2-amino- thiadiazoles were synthesized, which on reaction with substituted aromatic aldehydes and thioglycolic acid in the presence of dicyclohexylcarbodiimide afforded thia - zolidin-4-ones. All the compounds were synthesized in fairly good yields and their structures were confirmed by spectral and physical data. The title compounds were screened for in vitro anti-proliferative activity on human breast adenocarcinoma cells (MCF-7) by MTT assay. Most of the derivatives showed an IC 50 less than 150 μmol L –1 . Among the compounds tested, 2-(2-nitrophe- nyl)-3-(5-methyl-1,3,4-thiadiazol-2-yl)-thiazolidin -4-one ( 3f) , -(3-fluorophenyl)-3-(5-methyl-1,3,4-thiadiazol-2- -yl)-thiazolidin-4-one ( 3b ), and 2-(4-chlorophenyl)-3- -(5-methyl-1,3,4-thiadiazol-2-yl)-thiazolidin-4-one (3c) were found to be the most active derivatives with IC 50 values of 46.34, 66.84, and 60.71 μmol L –1 , respectively. Antioxidant studies of all the synthesized compounds were carried out by diphenylpicrylhydrazyl (DPPH) as - say. Among the compounds tested, 2-phenyl-3-(5-styryl- -1,3,4-thiadiazol-2-yl)-thiazolidin-4-one ( 3s ) elicited supe - rior antioxidant activity with IC 50 of 161.93 μmol L –1.
