A series of 3-substituted-4-[5-(2,4-dichlorophenyl)-2-furfurylidine]amino-5-me rcapto-1, 2,4-triazoles (3) are synthesised. Aminomethylation of 3 with formaldehyde and a primary/secondary amine furnished Mannich bases 4 and 5. Both Schiff bases 3 and Mannich bases 4 and 5 are characterised on the basis of IR, 1H NMR, mass spectral data and elemental analysis. All the newly synthesised compounds are tested for their antibacterial activities. Some of the selected compounds are also tested for their fungicidal and herbicidal properties.
