A number of substituted-a,β -unsaturated carbonyl compounds (1a-i) were prepared by Claisen-Schmidt condensation of substituted acetophenone with selected araldehydes, which on cycloaddition with thiourea furnished 4,6-disubstituted pyrimidine-2-thiols (2a-i). Reaction of (2a-i) with ethyl chloroacetate followed by condensation with hydrazine hydrate yielded 2-[(4,6-disubstituted pyrimidine-2-yl) thio] acetohydrazides (4a-c). Condensation of compounds (4a-c) with phenyl isothiocyanate gave 2-{[(4,6-disubstituted pyrimidine-2-yl) thio] acetyl}-N-phenylhydrazinecarbothioamides (5a-c) which on treatment with concentrated sulphuric acid afforded titled compounds 5-{(4,6-disubstituted pyrimidine-2-yl) thio] methyl}-N-phenyl-1,3,4-thiadiazole-2-amines (6a-c). These compounds have been characterized on the basis of elemental analysis, IR, 1 H NMR and MS. Compounds have been evaluated for their anticancer and antioxidant activities. Compounds 2b, 2c and 6b exhibited significant antitumor activity against human breast cancer MCF 7 cell line. However, moderate antioxidant activity was observed with compounds 2c, 2d, 2g and 6b.
