A series of 5-substituted arylidine-2, 4-thiazolidinediones derivatives were synthesized from 2, 4-thiazolidinedione and substituted aromatic aldehydes. The synthesized title compounds were screened for their in-vivo anti-inflammatory and analgesic and in-vitro antioxidant activities as per standard protocols. All the compounds were found to possess significant activities
