5-(7-Methyl-2-propyl-1H-benzo[d]imidazol-5-yl)-4-phenyl-4H-1,2,4-triazole-3-thiols (6a-i) have been synthesized from key intermediate 7-methyl-2-propyl-1H-benzo[d]imidazole-5- carbohydrazide(3). The hydrazide was treated with different aryl isothiocyanates to give corresponding thiosemicarbazone derivatives, which underwent cyclization in 4N sodium hydroxide to afford the corresponding title compound. All the compounds were evaluated for their in vitro antioxidant and in vivo anti-inflammatory activity. From the results, compounds 6b and 6e showed potential antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity. The biological data was further supported by molecular docking studies, which revealed the binding pattern and the affinity of the molecules in the active site of COX-2.
Benzimidazolyl-1, 2, 4-triazole, antioxidant activity, anti-inflammatory activity, in silico studies.
