The study aimed at screening synthetic compounds for pharmacological activity. The anthelmintic activity of 3 - benzyl - 2 - (4' - substituted phenyl) - 4(5 H ) - (4'' - nitrophenyl amino) - 1, 3 - oxazolidines 6a - e compounds was evaluated by Passive avoidance test . The purity of the synthesized compounds was characterized by means of IR, 1 H - NMR, mass spectral and elemental analysis.
