Phenylthiazolylnaphthylmethanone and their analogues serve as precursors for the synthesis of biologically active compounds. They were accounted for to have antimicrobial, analgesic, anti-inflammatory, anticonvulsant, cardiotonic, anticancer, anti-tubercular and anthelmintic activities. The Phenylthiazolylnaphthylmethanone derivatives were synthesized and characterized by FT-IR, 1H NMR, 13C NMR, Mass spectral studies and biological studies. In addition, the Lipinski rule of five, molecular docking was used to calculate binding affinities and predict binding locations for the various receptors. With an end goal to assess and plan quick, precise Density Functional Theory (DFT) strategies for the compound was finished utilizing Gaussion' 09 program using B3LYP technique with the 6-31G premise set. The antioxidant activity has been analyzed using the DPPH radical scavenging assay. Among the (2-diethylamino-4-phenylthiazol-5-yl-2-naphthyl) methanone (1b) was highly active on the SKMEL cell line.

Thiazole is an aromatic five membered heterocyclics. It was first characterized by Hantzsch and Weber in 1887 [1]. Thiazoles being an integral part of many potent biologically active molecules [2]. It contains N=C=S moiety has been utilized as antiphychotics and antimalarial [3]. A large number of heterocyclic compounds containing nitrogen and sulfur are used as medicine in various therapeutic targets [4]. The thiazole nucleus is part of the vitamin B (thiamine) structure, furthermore in specific antibiotics drugs like penicillin, micrococcin and numerous metabolic results of fungi and primitive marine animal etc. [5]. The applications of thiazoles were found in drug improvement for the treatment of hypertension, inflammation, allergies, schizophrenia, bacterial, HIV infections hypnotics and more recently for the treatment of pain as fibrinogen receptor antagonists with antithrombolic activity and so new inhibitors of bacterial DNA gyros B [6]. Naphthalene is a huge hydrocarbon natural substance that gives rise to a host of replacement products used in the manufacture of dyestuffs and synthetic resins [7]. It was insoluble in water and is soluble in benzene, absoluble alcohol, ether, carbon tetrachloride, etc. [8]. Diethyl amine is targeted at therapeutic scaffolds that can act as strands of biological receptors for various biomarkers and consequently aid in drug discovery [9]. The five member pyrrolidine ring is one of the nitrogen heterocycles most commonly used by medical pharmacists to obtain compounds for the treatment of human diseases [10]. Morpholine is mainly due to its contribution to the diversity of biological functions and the improved pharmacokinetic profile of those active molecules [11].

Literature Review

The amino-1,3-thiazoles are prepared from amidines and thiouronium salts through condensation with isothiocyanates, to yield amidinothioureas and thioureidothioureas. With a base catalysed ring closure procedure, treatment of the bromo ketones led to the S-alkylated intermediate, which yielded 1,3-thiazoles [12].


A new ligand 1-(3-(2-pyridyl) pyrazol-1-ylmethyl)naphthalene and its two metal complexes, (Cu(L)3)(ClO4)2 and (Zn(L)3)(ClO4)2(H2O)2 were synthesized and characterized. The compounds were biologically evaluated on tumor cells (HL-60 human leukaemia cells, BGC-823 human stomach cancer cells and MDA-MB-435 human mammary cancer cells) [13].


Naphthalene containing compound 5-morpholin-4-yl-4-phenyl-thiophene-2-carboxylic acid naphthalene-1-ylamide showed significant anti-inflammatory activity [14].


Experimental details

Mulliken population analysis

Mulliken population analysis is a quantum chemical calculation that provides charge distribution in atoms from calculations carried out by the methods of computational chemistry [18]. Mulliken charges are particularly based on a Linear Combination of Atomic Orbitals molecular orbital (LCAO) method (Figure 3). The HOMO is nucleophilic or electron donating and the LUMO is electrophilic or electron accepting. The energy gap between HOMO and LUMO of a neutral system, i.e. the difference between the Highest Occupied Molecular Orbital (HOMO) and Lowest Unoccupied Molecular Orbital (LUMO) is related with polarisability, chemical reactivity and kinetic stability [19]. For example HOMO-LUMO of (2-dimethylamino-4-phenylthiazol-5-yl-2-naphthyl)methanone (1a) (Figure 4).

Because of the alteration in the dipole moment, the absorption of Energy (E) that coincides with the vibrational frequency (V) would produce molecular vibration. Stretching (where the bond length and distance between the two atoms are both influenced) and bending (where the angle between the two bonds is varied) are the two basic vibrational modes [20].

Evaluation of in vitro cytotoxic activity

The cytotoxic activity and IC50 value of the (2-diethylamino-4-phenylthiazol-5-yl-2-naphthyl)methanone (1b) compound was calculated from the MTT assay. The morphological changes of SKMEL cell line (human skin cancer) after 24 h incubation of (2-diethylamino-4-phenylthiazol-5-yl-2-naphthyl)methanone (1b) compound is plotted in (Figure 11). A 6.25 μg/mL reduces the cell viability to 68.76% μg/mL, 12.5 μg/mL reduces the cell viability to 72.45% μg/mL, 25 μg/mL reduces the cell viability to 65.54% μg/mL, 50 μg/mL reduces the cell viability to 52.43% μg/mL and 100 μg/mL reduces the cell viability to 38.98%. In anticancer study of (2-diethylamino-4-phenylthiazol-5-yl-2-naphthyl)methanone (1b) exhibited the highest anticancer activity against SKMEL cell lines (human skin cancer) with IC50 values 65.91 μM are very good anticancer compound (Figure 12).

In conclusion, a new series of extracts from phenylthiazolylnaphthylmethanone have been successfully synthesized compounds with high yields and are characterized by IR, 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR and mass analyzes. The computational studies, like structural optimization, vibrational assignments, Mulliken charge distribution and molecular orbital energies theoretically helped to find the arrangement of atoms in phenylthiazolylnaphthylmethanone. The electronic parameters correspond to HOMO and LUMO show the phenylthiazolylnaphthylmethanone have a low energy gap, hence they are softer and highly reactive compounds. These parameters were calculated using the Gaussian 09 software. Docking study of these phenylthiazolylnaphthylmethanone derivative shows as good oral drugs candidates. The antioxidant activity of composite compounds was determined by the DPPH activity for free radical disposal. The highest free radical scavenging activity was achieved for compound (2-diethylamino-4-phenylthiazol-5-yl-2-naphthyl)methanone (1b) and their IC50 value is 63 μM. The compound (2-diethylamino-4-phenylthiazol-5-yl-2-naphthyl)methanone (1b) displayed the highest anticancer activity in SKMEL cell line (human skin cancer) and their IC50 value is 65.91 μM.
