Molecular hybridization approach was used to synthesize substituted 2-(2-(4-aryl oxy benzylidene) hydrazinyl)benzo thiazole derivatives with 2-hydrazinobenzothiazole and 4-(alicycli/aryl/biaryl/heteroaryl oxy)benzaldehyde as new anti-TB agents. The synthesized compounds, when tested against H37Rv strains of Mtb using Resazurin Microtitre Assay (REMA) method, showed promising activity (MIC 1.35-36.50μg/mL). 6-chloro-2-(2-(4- (pyridin-4-yloxy) benzylidene) hydrazinyl) benzo[d]thiazole (10v) gave MIC of 1.35 μg/mL. Thus making it, a potential lead could be developed for further antitubercular studies.
