Several novel semicarbazones derivatives were prepared from 5-nitro-2-furaldehyde or 5-nitrothiophene-2-carboxaldehyde, and tested in vitro as potential anti-trypanosomal agents. The compounds were prepared in good to excellent yields in 2–3 steps from readily available starting materials. Some derivatives were found to be active against Trypanosoma cruzi with an activity similar to that of Nifurtimox.
