Graphical Abstract:


In an attempt to find a new class of anti-inflammatory agents, a series of novel benzamides 3 (ab1-ab16) was synthesized by utilizing some arylideneoxazolones 2(az1-az4) having 2-acetyloxyphenyl substitution on their second position. IR, 1H-NMR, 13C NMR and HRMS, confirmed the structures of these synthesized compounds. Among the tested benzamide compounds 3ab1, 3ab2, 3ab11 and 3ab16 showed promising anti-inflammatory activity with lessened propensity to cause gastro-intestinal hypermotility and ulceration when compared with standard Indomethacin. Virtual screening was performed by docking the designed compounds into the ATP binding site of COX-2 receptor to predict if these compounds have analogous binding mode to the COX-2 inhibitor.

Keywords: Anti-inflammatory, benzamides, docking, gastro-intestinal hypermotility, ulcerogenic activity.
