Abstract

There is a high demand for the collection of small organic molecules (especially N-heterocycles) with diversity and complexity in the process of drug discovery. This need for privileged scaffolds in medicinal research gives an impetus for the development of nitrogen-containing compounds which are widely encountered in natural products, drugs and pharmaceutically active compounds. In this context, a diverse library of new triazolothiadiazole (4a-l) and triazolothiadiazine (5a-p) compounds was designed, synthesized and evaluated as potent and selective inhibitors of electric eel acetylcholinesterase (EeAChE) and horse serum butyrylcholinesterase (hBChE) by Ellman's method using neostigmine and..
