Four novel thiourea derivatives containing a thiazole moiety were synthesized and characterized by IR, 1H and 13C NMR, mass spectrometry and elemental analysis. The crystal structure of 1a was determined from single crystal X-ray diffraction data. It crystallizes in monoclinic space group P21/n with unit cell dimensions a = 11.7752(6) Å, b= 3.8677(2) Å, c= 27.4126(13) Å and β = 92.734(5) Å. There is a strong intramolecular hydrogen bond of the type N-H⋯O, with H⋯O distance of 2.5869(19) Å. The mass fragmentation pattern has also been discussed. The antifungal activity of the synthesized compounds was studied by broth micro-dilution method and poisoned food technique. The compounds 1b and 1c possessed a broad spectrum of antifungal activity.
