A library of novel imidazole-1,2,3-triazole hybrids were designed and synthesized based on the hybrid pharmacophore approach. Therefore, copper(I)catalyzed click reaction of thiopropargylated-imidazole 2 with several organoazides yielded two sets of imidazole-1,2,3-triazole hybrids carrying different un/functionalized alkyl/aryl side chains and . After full spectroscopic characterization using different spectral techniques (IR, H, C NMR) and elemental analyses, the resulted adducts were screened for their anticancer activity against four cancer cell lines (Caco-2, HCT-116, HeLa, and MCF-7) by the MTT assay and showed significant activity. In-silico molecular docking study was also investigated on one of the prominent cancer target receptors, i.e., glycogen synthase kinase-3β (GSK-3β), revealing a good binding interaction with our potent compound, and was in agreement with the in vitro cytotoxic results. In addition, the ADMET profile was assessed for these novel derivatives to get an insight on their pharmacokinetic/dynamic attributes. Finally, this research design and synthesis offered click chemistry products with interesting biological motifs mainly 1,2,3 triazoles linked to phenyl imidazole as promising candidates for further investigation as anticancer drugs.
