Background: A library of compounds related to the new benzoxepine-oxime-1,2,3-triazole
hybrid was created as probable antibacterial agents. Their synthesis involved a Cu-catalyzed azidealkyne
cycloaddition (CuAAC) as a key step to construct the desired 1,2,3-triazole ring. Thus the click
reaction between the appropriate alkyne containing the benzoxepine-oxime framework with aryl azides
afforded the target compounds in good yields.
Method: To assess their antibacterial properties all the synthesized compounds were tested using four
bacterial strains consisting of one Gram-positive and three Gram-negative species.
Results & Conclusion: These compounds were generally found to be effective towards gram -ve species
and one of them showed selective cytotoxicity against lung cancer cell line.
Keywords: Antibacterial, benzoxepine, oxime, 1, 2, 3-triazole, hybrid, erythromycin.
