A series of Schiff's benzimidazole bases, thiosemicarbazides were synthesized, azole ring systems as 1,3,4-triazole, 1,3,4-oxadiazole were prepared. 1-Methylbenzimidazole incorporated to substituted dithio-carbamate, thiophenol, diethylamine via acetamido group were synthesized. A series of pyrimidinobenzimidazoles, triazinobenz-imidazoles, and 2-(acetonylamino)-1-methyl-benzimidazole were prepared. The antimicrobial and molluscicidal activities of some newly prepared compounds were carried out.
