A series of 1,3,4-oxadiazole-2-thiones (4, 5), 2-methylthio-1,3,4-thiadiazoles (15, 16) and 1,2,4-triazole-3-thiones (17-32) have been synthesized using high reactivity of various methyl 2-heteroaroylhydrazinecarbodithioates, that underwent cyclization in alkaline or acidic solution. Reaction of 4-(2-(methylthiocarbonothioyl)hydrazine) carbonyl)pyridine 1-oxide with morpholine led to 4-(5-morpholino-1,3,4-oxadiazol-2-yl)pyridine 1-oxide (11). 2-Methylthio-1,3,4-oxadiazoles (12-14) were obtained by the methylation of 1,3,4-oxadiazole-2-thiones (1, 4, 5) in alkaline solution. 1,2,4-Triazole-3-thiones (21-23, 31) obtained in reaction with aminoalcohols gave 1,2,4-triazolo[3,4-b][1,3]thiazines when refluxed in conc. HCl. The obtained compounds were tested in vitro towards Mycobacterium tuberculosis standard strain (H37Rv) and two “wild” strains, susceptible (Spec. 192) and resistant (Spec. 210).
