One of the best ways to design new biocidal agents is synthesizing hybrid molecules by combining two or more bioactive moieties in a single molecular scaffold. So, new series of pyrroles bearing a thiazole moiety were synthesized using 1-methyl-1H-pyrrole-2-carbaldehyde thiosemicarbazones 1ac. Cyclization of thiosemicarbazone derivatives 1ac with ethyl chloroacetate, ethyl 2-chloropropanoate, chloroacetone and phenacyl bromide afforded the corresponding thiazolidin-4-ones 2ac, 5-methylthiazolidin-4-ones 3ac, 4-methyl-2,3-dihydrothiazoles 4ac, and 4-phenyl-2,3-dihydrothiazoles 5ac, respectively. The antimicrobial activity of the new thiazole derivatives was evaluated.
