Some thiazole derivatives bearing dithiocarbamic acid esters were synthesized in order to investigate their anticandidal activity and cytotoxicity. The structures of the obtained final compounds (6a-j) were confirmed by spectral data (IR, H-1 NMR, C-13 NMR, and MS) and elemental analysis. The anticandidal activity of the compounds was determined (6a-j) using the microbroth dilution method and their cytotoxicity was evaluated according to the MTT (3-( 4,5-dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazolium bromide) assay against normal cells. Contrary to expectations, weak antifungal activity was observed with IC50 values ranging between 30 and 403 mu g/mL.
