Naphtho[2,1-b]furan-2-carbohydrazide (2) prepared from reaction between ethyl naphtho[2,1-b]furan-2-carboxylate (1) and hydrazine hydrate, then compound (2) on reaction with CS2/KOH gives 5- (naphtho[2,1-b] furan-2-yl)-1,3,4-oxadiazole-2(3H)-thione (3), Which on mannich reaction followed by reaction with benzoic hydrazine gives different N-(1-((dialkylamino)methyl)-3-(naphtho[2,1-b]furan-2-yl)-5- thioxo-1H-1,2,4-triazol-4(5H)-yl)benzamide (4a-e). With the help of analytical and spectral data, the structure of these compounds were detected. Antibacterial and antifungal activities of the synthesized compounds were studied.

Literature survey reveals that various 1,2,4-triazole derivatives display significant biological activities such as bactericidal,  diuretic,  fungicidal,  herbicidal,  insecticidal and acaricidal,  plant growth regulator,  anticancer,  5-lipoxygenase inhibitors  and anti-HIV,  antileshmanial,  antitumor  activities. Platinum(II) complexes comprising 1,2,4-triazoles as ligands show antitumor activity similar to cis-platin.  Furthermore, ruthenium(III) complexes of 1,2,4-triazoles are promising as potential drugs in anticancer treatment as alternative to the approved platinum-based anticancer drugs.  1,2,4-Triazoles such as rizatriptan as agents for acute treatment of migraine headaches are commercially available drugs;  however, they are also still a topic of intensive research . Keeping in mind the pharmacological applications of this class of compounds and with a view to further assess the pharmacological profile of this class of compounds, the present section incorporates synthesis of thirty novel analogues of 1,2,4-triazole derivatives.
Materials and Methods
Melting points were determined in open capillary tubes and are uncorrected. Formation of the compounds was routinely checked by TLC on silica gel-G plates of 0.5 mm thickness and spotsvisualization was made with UV light (254 and 365 nm) or with an iodine vapor. IR spectra were recorded on Shimadzu FT-IR-8400 instrument using KBr pellet method. Mass spectra were recorded on Shimadzu GCMS-QP-2010 model using Direct Injection Probe technique. 1H NMR and 13C NMR were determined in DMSO-d6 solution on a Bruker Ac 400 MHz spectrometer. Elemental analyses of the all the synthesized compounds were carried out on Elemental Vario EL III Carlo Erba 1108 model and the results are in agreement with the structures assigned.
In first step, 4-bromobenzothioamide (Int-1) was prepared from 4-bromobenzonitrile by stirring with sodium hydrogensulphide and magnesium chloride in DMF, which followed by methylation afforded the S-methyl benzothioamide derivative (Int-2). The condensation of S-methyl benzothioamide derivative (Int-2) and 2,2,2-trifluoroacetohydrazide at 150°C in DMF afforded 3-(4-bromophenyl)-5-(trifluoromethyl)-1H-1,2,4-triazole (Int-3) in good yield, which was subjected to N-butylation at 100°C in DMF presence of K2CO3 base to afford 3-(4-bromophenyl)-1-butyl-5-(trifluoromethyl)-1H-1,2,4-triazole (Int-4). In the final step, (Int-4) was subjected to Suzuki-Miyaura reaction with various aryl boronic acids in the presence of palladium catalyst, TBAB, K2CO3 and DMF:water as a solvent at 120°C to afford the final products 3-([1,1'-biphenyl]4-yl)-1-butyl-5-(trifluoro methyl)-1H-1,2,4-triazole (P116-P125) in moderate to high yield. The structures of all newly substituted-triazole derivatives were identified by Mass, IR, 1H NMR, 13C spectroscopy.

All the synthesized compounds (P116-P125) were tested for their antibacterial and antifungal activity (MIC) in vitro by broth dilution method [16-18] with two Gram-positive bacteria Staphylococcus aureus MTCC-96, Streptococcus pyogenes-MTCC-443, two Gram-negative bacteria Escherichia coli MTCC-442, Pseudomonas aeruginosa-MTCC-441 and three fungal strains Candida albicans MTCC-227, Aspergillus Niger MTCC-282, Aspergillus clavatus MTCC-1323 taking ampicillin, chloramphenicol, ciprofloxacin, norfloxacin, nystatin, and greseofulvin as standard drugs. The standard strains were procured from the Microbial Type Culture Collection (MTCC) and Gene Bank, Institute of Microbial Technology, Chandigarh, India. The results obtained from antimicrobial susceptibility testing are depicted in Tables 1 and 2.
