Various 7-chloro-6-fluoro-2-arylidenylaminobenzo(1,3)thiazole (2a-h) have been synthesized by the condensation of 7-chloro-6-fluoro-2-aminobenzo(1,3)thiazole (1) with different aromatic aldehydes. The Schiff's bases on reaction with acetyl chloride, chloroacetyl chloride and phenyl acetyl chloride yielded 1-(7-chloro-6-fluorobenzothiazol-2-yl)-3,4-substituted-aryl-azetidin-2-ones (3a-x). Similarly, cyclization of Schiff's base with thioglycolic acid furnished 3-(7-chloro-6-fluoro-benzothiazol-2-yl)-2-substituted-arylthiazolidin-4-ones (4a-h). The structures of the newly synthesized compounds have been established on the basis of their spectral data and elemental analysis. Some selected compounds were evaluated for antiinflammatory, analgesic, CNS depressant and skeletal muscle relaxant activity.
