Objective: Synthesis and antimicrobial evaluation of some new amides of Thiomorpholine caboxylate.

Methods: A series of new amides of Thiomorpholine caboxylate were synthesized by reacting 4-tert-butyl 2-methyl thiomorpholine-2,4-dicarboxylate 1,1-dioxide with primary amines in presence of Trimethyl aluminum in toluene at ambient temperature in good yields. 4-tert-butyl 2-methyl thiomorpholine-2,4-dicarboxylate 1,1-dioxide was synthesized by reacting tert-butyl thiomorpholine-4-carboxylate 1,1-dioxide with methyl chloroformate in presence of LiHMDS (1M in THF) at -78oC for the first time. The newly synthesized compounds were characterized by IR, 1HNMR, 13C NMR, Mass spectral studies and elemental analysis.

Results: A series of new amides of Thiomorpholine carboxylate were synthesized in good yields and all the compounds were screened for their In-vitro antimicrobial activities.

Conclusion: Preliminary results revealed that the synthesized compounds were showed moderate to good antibacterial and antifungal activity.

Keywords: Antimicrobial activity, Thiomorpholine, Trimethylaluminum, LiHMDS.
