New 2-methyl-5-(4-oxo-2-(substituted phenyl)thiazolidin-3-yl)thieno[3,4-d]-pyrimidin-4-one, 5-(2,7-diphe-nyl-5-thioxo-5,6,7,7a-tetrahydrothiazolo[4,5-d]pyrimidin-3(2H)-yl)-2-methylthieno[3,4-d]pyrimidin-4(3H)-one, and 2-methyl-5-(5-phenyl-thiazolo[5,4-d]isoxazol-6(5H)-yl)thieno[3,4-d]pyrimidin-4(3H)-one have been prepared under microwave-assisted and conventional conditions. The new compounds were screened for their in vitro antimicrobial activity against two gram-positive bacteria (Bacillus subtilis NCIM-2063 and Staphylococcus aureus NCIM-2901), one gram-negative bacteria (Escherichia coli NCIM-2256), and three fungal strains (Candida albicans NCIM-3471, Aspergillus flavus NCIM-539, and Aspergillus niger NCIM-1196) and showed promising biological activity.

4-Thiazolidinone ring system has diverse chemother-apeutic potentials including hypnotic activity [1, 2], antitubercular , anticonvulsant [4, 5], antibacterial [6, 7], anticancer [8, 9], antihistaminic [10, 11], antifungal , anti-inflammatory , antiviral , and cardiovascular effects . Microwave technique has been used to accelerate chemical reactions in the laboratories  as it is a convenient way toward the goal of green/sustainable chemistry, and is strongly recommended for use in recent organic preparations due to its advantages over conventional methods [16—19]. Herein, we report an attempt to use the microwave assistance to prepare new thiazolidine derivatives comparing to the conventional method and to investigate the biological activity of these new compounds on some selected bacteria and fungi.
RESULTS AND DISCUSSION
Irradiation of a mixture of equimolar amounts of 5-amino-2-methylthieno[3,4-rf|-pyrimidin-4(3^)-one (I) with benzaldehyde (IIa) and thioglycolic acid in DMF in presence of 3—4 drops of glacial acetic acid using micro-

wave has afforded compound (IIIa) as shown in Scheme 1. Formation of (IIIa) proceeds via initial condensation reaction of the amino group in (I) with aldehydic group of (II) to afford the corresponding SchifFs base. A nucleo-philic attack by thiol function of thioglycolic acid on the double bond of SchifFs base led to formation of new thiazolidine derivatives (IIIa—j) via two successive intermediates with elimination of water as shown in the figure. IR spectrum of compound (IIIa) showed bands at 1681-1708 cm-1 and 3156-3480 cm-1 assigned for carbonyl and imino groups, respectively. The mass spectrum revealed a molecular ion peak at m/z at 343 (M+, 56%) corresponding to a molecular formula C16H13N3O2S2. Also, the 1H NMR spectrum showed four singlet signals at 5 2.71, 6.12, 6.42, and 9.12 ppm assigned for methyl, methine of thiazolidine, methine of thiophene, and NH groups, respectively, and multiplets at 5 6.71-7.54 ppm due to aromatic protons.
Upon repetition of the reactions under thermal conditions the yields were lower and the time of completion of the reaction wass longer than with microwave assistance, which is a known advantage of the microwave technique in organic synthesis.
Reactivity of the 4-thiazolidinone derivative (IIIa) as a key intermediate for the synthesis offused thiazolo[4,5-d]pyrimidine derivative has been investigated. The one-pot three-component condensation reaction of 2-meth-

The structure of newly synthesized compound was elucidated by combined use ofIR, 1H NMR, 13C NMR, mass spectral data, and elemental analysis. Its IR spectrum showed peaks at 1380, 1681-1708 and 3156-3480 cm-1 assigned for C=S, C=O, and NH stretching, respectively. The 1H NMR spectrum showed the presence of
four singlet signals at 5 2.71, 5.47, 6.42, and 9.41 ppm due to the methyl, thiazole-H2, thiophene-H5, and —NH-C=O of pyrimidine ring, respectively, three doublets centered around 3.41, 4.21, and 4.23 ppm attributed to thiazole-H5, pyrimidine-H6, and -NH-C=S of py-rimidine ring, respectively, and multiplets at 7.03-7.51 due to aromatic protons. The mass spectrum of (IV) showed a molecular ion peak at m/z 489 (55%), corresponding to a molecular formula C24H19N5OS3.
