A novel bicyclic thiohydantoin fused to pyrrolidine compound, methyl 2-(4-chlorophenyl)-7a-((4-chlorophenyl)carbamothioyl)-1-oxo-5,5-diphenyl-3-thioxo-hexahydro-1H-pyrrolo[1,2-e]imidazole-6-carboxylate, was synthesized by the cyclization reaction of dimethyl 5,5-diphenylpyrrolidine-2,4-dicarboxylate and 4-chlorophenyl isothiocyanate in the presence of 4-(dimethylamino)pyridine to form methyl 2-(4-chlorophenyl)-1-oxo-5,5-diphenyl-3-thioxo-hexahydro-1H-pyrrolo[1,2-e]imidazole-6-carboxylate with concomitant addition reaction of the 4-chlorophenyl isothiocyanate in 79% yield. The structural characterization was performed by NMR, FT-IR, MS and HRMS techniques, and the stereochemistry of the compound was determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction study. In addition, the molecular structure and 1H and 13C NMR chemical shifts of the compound were obtained with the density functional theory and Hartree-Fock calculations. Acid dissociation constants of the compound were determined using potentiometric titration method in 25% (v/v) dimethyl sulfoxide-water hydroorganic solvent at 25 ± 0.1 °C, at an ionic background of 0.1 mol/L of NaCl using the HYPERQUAD computer program. Four acid dissociation constants were obtained for the compound, and we suggest that these acid dissociation constants are related to the NH, for two groups of enthiols and enol groups. Antimicrobial activity study was performed against S. aureus, B. subtilis, A. hydrophila, E. coli and A. baumannii as bacterial standard strains, and against M. tuberculosis H37Rv as mycobacterial strain. The compound exhibited antibacterial activity in the range of 31.25–62.5 μg/mL, and antimycobacterial activity with a MIC value of 40 μg/mL against the indicated strains.
