A series of thiazoles 4 a-g and thiazole clubbed triazoles 5 a-f were synthesized and showed good antibacterial activity against, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherchia coli, Staphylococcus aureus and Bacillus subtilis. Particularly, 4 a (methyl), 5 b (nitro) and 5 d (fluoro) derivatives demonstrated a broad range of activity over other derivatized compounds. In addition, Computational interaction, ADMET (absorption, distribution, metabolism, and excretion - toxicity in pharmacokinetics), Lipinski's rule and DNA binding studies of all the results stacked together indicated that 5 b can be further developed as lead molecule against bacterial pathogens.
