2,4-Dichloro-5-fluorophenyl containing 7-arylidenetriazolothiadiazines were obtained by the reaction of 4-amino-3-(2,4-dichloro-5-fluorophenyl)-5-mercapto-1,2,4-triazole with 2,3-dibromo-1,3-diarylpropan-1-ones, and also by the reaction of 4-amino-3-(2,4-dichloro-5-fluorophenyl)-5-mercapto-1,2,4-triazole with α-bromopropenones in the presence of a base. The structure of the 7-arylidenetriazolothiadiazines was confirmed by an alternative synthesis. A plausible mechanism for the formation of 7-arylidenetriazolothiadiazines is proposed. All newly synthesized compounds were screened for their analgesic and antimicrobial activities. Compounds bearing 4-chlorophenyl or 3,4-methylenedioxyphenyl moieties at position 7 of the arylidenetriazolothiadiazines showed excellent analgesic activity. Arylidenetriazolothiadiazines carrying a phenyl, 4-chlorophenyl, 4-methylphenyl, 3,4-dimethoxyphenyl, and 2,4-dichlorophenyl moieties at position 7 showed excellent antibacterial and antifungal activities.
