A novel series of substituted 2-acylimino-1,3-thiazolines was synthesized and their herbicidal activity against upland weeds and selectivity against crops was assessed. The structure-activity relationships were probed by substitution of the thiazoline nucleus and/or an imino group. Highest activity was seen with compounds which contain two substituents: a methyl group at the 5-position of the thiazoline nucleus and a trifluoroacetyl or a difluoroacetyl group on an imino moiety. Among the
