Some new sulfur-nitrogen heterocyclic systems such as 1,3-thiazoles, 1,3,4-thiadiazoles, 1,2,4-triazoles and 1,3-thiazines incorporating acridine and 1,2,3,4-tetrahydroacridine moieties were synthesized via heterocyclization of the key intermediate 4-(acridin-9-yl)-1-(1,2,3,4-tetrahydroacridin-9-ylcarbonyl)thiosemicarbazide. Structures of the new comp-ounds were established by elemental analyses and spectral data. All the products were also screened in vitro for their antimicrobial activity.
