Azetidinones are four membered heterocycles with nitrogen as the heteroatom. In silico molecular modelling predicts anticancer property of azetidinone derivatives. The azetidinone derivatives can be synthesized via simple and efficient 2- step reaction. This involves production of Schiff’s base which then reacts with ketene to form azetidinone. However the reaction is highly stereo selective and the reaction carried out in this study yielded acetamide derivative. The acetamide derivative showed good activity against lung cancer cell lines. The current research work deals with an In silico approach in designing azetidinone derivatives, problems faced during the synthesis of azetidinones and the possible scheme via which the product deferred. © 2016, International Journal of Pharmacy and Technology.
