A new 3-(5-alkyl-2-phenyl-2H-1,2,4-triazol-3-yl)thiazolidin-4-ones derivatives were obtained by condensation of 5-amino-1,2,4-triazoles, mercaptoacetic acid with aromatic aldehydes and catalyzed by Sm(SO3CF3)3 using microwave irradiation. The prepared compounds were tested for their antioxidant, antibacterial and antifungal proprieties. Some of these compounds displayed significant activities. Among them, compound 2e exhibited remarkable activity against a broad spectrum of Gram positive, negative bacteria and pathogenic fungal strains with low MIC values. The investigation of the mode of action of the most potent antifungal compounds on the fungus Pythium phanidermatum showed a membrane alteration and distortions of hyphal morphology. The newly synthesized compounds exhibited also promising radical scavenging activity.
