Some new 2-(5-substituted-1,3,4-oxadiazole-2-yl)-1,3- benzothiazole (3a-j) were synthesized by refluxing benzothiazolyl carboxyhydrazide with different aryl acids in phosphoryl chloride. Structures of the synthesized compounds were established on the basis of 1H NMR and Mass spectral data. The anti microbial activity of the synthesized compounds was evaluated by disc diffusion method.
