This work involved two parts: the first part included synthesis of new Schiff bases from condensation of 2-aminobenzothiazole with different aldehydes in acidic medium, while and the second part included the synthesis of Oxazolidinones from reaction of the prepared Schiff bases with glycine to produce new heterocyclic. Compounds. The structure of prepared compounds were characterized by 1H-NMR, FT-IR techniques and their biological activity was assessed.
