In the reaction of hydrazide of (tetrazol-5-yl)acetic acid (1) with isothiocyanate the respective thiosemicarbazide derivatives 2 were obtained. Further cyclization with 2% NaOH led to the formation of 3-[(tetrazol-5-yl)-methyl]-4-substituted-1,2,4-triazoline-5-thione 3. The structures of all new products were confirmed by analytical and spectroscopic methods. Five compounds were screened for their in vitro activity against some species of aerobic bacteria and fungi. Derivatives of 1,2,4-triazoline-5-thione can exist in two major tautomeric forms; thiole and thione. We have established experimentally that all obtained compounds 3, were in the thione form. Geometry optimization of tautomeric forms of 3c and 3f was carried out.
