Graphical Abstract:


Introduction: In continuation of our efforts to find new antimicrobials, herein we report the synthesis of various pyrazole, pyrazoline, and pyridine based novel bioactive heterocycles (3a-t).

Methods: Newly synthesized compounds were analysed for their antimicrobial activity. Compounds 3c, 3h, 3i, 3k, 3n, and 3q showed significant antimicrobial activity.

Results: Molecular docking study for the most active analogues against DNA gyrase subunit b (PDB ID: 1KZN) corroborated well with the observed antimicrobial potency exhibiting significant binding affinity.

Conslusion: Interpretation of the chemical structures reported in this paper was based on IR, 1H NMR, 13C NMR, and mass spectral data.

Keywords: Pyrazole, pyrazoline, pyridine, heterocycles, antimicrobial activity, molecular docking.
