Efficient synthesis and anti-bovine viral diarrhea virus evaluation of 5-(aryldiazo)salicylaldehyde thiosemicarbazone derivatives

An efficient procedure for the synthesis of 5-(aryldiazo)salicylaldehyde thiosemicarbazone derivatives 1-25 was achieved via the condensation of 5-(aryldiazo)salicylaldehyde derivatives I–V with N-(4)-substituted thiosemicarbazide derivatives. Antiviral activity of the synthesized compounds was carried out. From the obtained results, it was noticed that compound 11 has a strong antiviral activity.
