New thiazoline derivatives 7a-c, and thiophenes 9a-c linked to indole moiety were easily prepared via the reaction of the acrylamide derivative 3 with phenacyl bromides 4a-c, depending on the reaction conditions. In addition, the reaction of compound 3 with hydrazonoyl chlorides 11a-f afforded a series of 1,3,4-thiadiazole derivatives 13a-f. Moreover, coupling of 3-(3-methyl-1H-indol-2-yl)-3-oxopropanenitrile (2) with the diazonium salts of 3-phenyl-5-aminopyrazole 16 or 3-amino-1,2,4-triazole 17 gave the corresponding hydrazones 18 and 19, respectively. Cyclization of the latter hydrazones yielded the corresponding pyrazolo[5,1-c]-1,2,4- triazine and 1,2,4-triazolo[5,1-c]-1,2,4-triazine derivatives 20 and 21, respectively. The structures of the synthesized compounds were assigned on the basis of elemental analysis, IR, 1H NMR and mass spectral data. All the synthesized compounds were tested for in vitro activities against certain strains of fungi such as Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus nodulans, Alternaria alternate. Compounds showed marked inhibition of fungal growth nearly equal to the standards.
