A series of new 2-[4-(alkylsulfonyl) benzyl]-5-substituted-1,3,4-oxadiazole (6a-l) have been synthesized from 4-(alkyl thio) phenyl actetonitrile (1) through a multi step reaction sequence. The structures of new compounds were established on the basis of their elemental analysis, IR, 1H NMR, 13C NMR and mass spectral data. All the synthesized compounds were screened for their antioxidant activity.
