In this research, cyclic compounds derived from 2- furfural mercaptan (oxazole, triazoles) were synthesized, and their biological efficacy was measured and compared with standard drugs. Also, their effectiveness as anti-oxidant was measured and compared with ascorbic acid as a standard substance. Some of the synthesized compounds were deduced with good efficacy.

Graphical Abstract

Synthesis of new heterocyclic derivatives from 2-furyl methanethiol and study their applications



Triazoles are the class of heterocyclic compounds which are under study since many years. The five membered triazole ring exists in two isomeric forms i.e., 1, 2, 3-triazole and 1, 2, 4-triazole[1] (Figure 1).
