A novel series of thiophene-2-carboxamide derivatives are designed and synthesized, and their structures are confirmed by 1H and 13C NMR, and mass spectra. The synthesized compounds are evaluated for their in vitro cytotoxic activity by MTT assay. Among the tested compounds, the derivative with 4-Cl-phenyl ring exhibits potent inhibitory activity against MCF-7, K562, HepG2, and MDA-MB-231. The molecular docking study performed for the synthesized compounds against PTP1B exhibits essential key interactions.
