In the present study novel 1,2,4-oxadiazolo sulfonamides 3a–3o are synthesized by an efficient method based on the reaction of 1,2,4-oxadiazole amines with aryl sulfonyl chlorides. Structures of the synthesized compounds are confirmed by IR, NMR and Mass spectra. Molecular interactions of the obtained compounds are studied by Discovery Studio v3.5, molecular docking with COX-2 enzyme. The compounds with high LibDock score are screened for their in vivo analgesic and anti inflammatory activities. The compound 3l demonstrates the highest activity.
