Abstract––A new series of 2,5-regioselective benzofuran-tetrazole hybrids (XIIIaXIIIp) were synthesised from 2H-chromene-3-carbonitriles (IXa), (IXb) in multi steps approach under mild reaction conditions in good yields and evaluated their anti-proliferative activity against HCT116 and Miapaca2 cell lines. Wherein compounds (XIIIe) (IC50: 3.19 μM) and (XIIIm) (IC50: 2.25 μM) were displayed highest anti-proliferative activity in both cell lines. Molecular docking and SAR studies revealed the in vitro results with target Proto-oncogene tyrosine kinase Src protein.

Keywords: benzofuran, tetrazoles, anti-proliferative activity, molecular docking, SAR studies
