Aim and Objective: It was of interest to synthesizing some new imidazolidineiminothione derivatives with different halogenated and alkylated aromatic substituent at N-(1) and N-(3) and evaluation of their antibacterial and antifungal properties.

Materials and Methods: New imidazolidineiminothione derivatives were synthesized through the reaction of different halogenated and alkylated N-arylcyanothioformamide derivatives with halogenated and alkylated aryl isocyanates.

Results: The imidazolidineiminothione derivatives were obtained in high yields with excellent purity. The activity of imidazolidineiminothione derivatives as antibacterial and antifungal agents was studied. Some of imidazolidineiminothione derivatives displayed significant antibacterial and antifungal activities.
