Abstract : A series of (2E)-1-(H-benzimidazol-2-yl)-3-substituted phenyl 2-propen-1-one linked with barbitone (5a-g) are synthesized by both conventional method and microwave assisted method. The benzimidazole chalcones (4a-g) were prepared from the condensation of 2-acetyl benzimidazole (3a) with different aromatic aldehydes. These chalcones on reaction with barbituric acid in presence of acetic acid medium gave the a,b-unsaturated benzimidazole derivatives. The structures of the all the final compounds were established on the basis of IR, 1H NMR, mass spectra and elemental analysis. The druglikeness and physicochemical properties of the derivatives were determined by actelion, molsoft, molinspiration and ACD ChemDraw Ultra 11.0 software. The final products possess a favourable drug likeness and drug score. All the final synthesized compounds were screened for their antioxidant properties like free radical scavenging by DPPH method. Among the synthesized compounds (5f), (5c) and (5d) were exhibited a good antioxidant activity and all the other derivatives showed a moderate activity.
