Novel series of naphthyl bearing 1,2,3-triazoles (4a-t) were synthesized and evaluated for their in vitro antiplasmodial activity against pyrimethamine (Pyr)-sensitive and resistant strains of Plasmodium falciparum. The synthesized compounds were assessed for their cytotoxicity employing human embryonic kidney cell line (HEK-293), and none of them was found to be toxic. Among them 4j, 4k, 4l, 4m, 4n, 4t exhibited significant antiplasmodial activity in both strains, of which compounds 4m, 4n and 4t (∼3.0-fold) displayed superior activity to Pyr against resistant strain. Pyr and selected compounds (4n, 4p and 4t) that repressed parasite development also inhibited PfDHFR activity of the soluble parasite extract, suggesting that anti-parasitic activity of these compounds is a result of inhibition of the parasite DHFR. In silico studies suggest that activity of these compounds might be enhanced due to π-π stacking.
