Triazole analogues are well known to have desirable properties for medicinal chemistry such as hydrogen bonding capability, moderate dipole character, rigidity and stability under in vivo conditions etc. This prompts us to carry out the present study, we have selected 20 triazole analogues and evaluated on the docking behavior of four targeted enzymes such as HNE, MMP 2, MMP 9 and tyrosinase. The molecular physicochemical analysis revealed that all the tested ligands (expect ligand 5 and 18) showed nil violation and complied well with the Lipinski's rule of five. ADME analysis showed that ligand 15 alone predicated to have low gastrointestinal (GI) absorption effect. Docking studies revealed that ligand 18 [2-(2,4-difluorophenyl)-1-(4-((1-(4-ethylbenzyl)-1H-1,2,3-triazol-4-yl)methyl)piperazin-1-yl)-3-(1H-1,2,4-triazol-1-yl)propan-2-ol] had exhibited the maximum binding energy for three target enzymes such as HNE, MMP 2 and MMP 9. The present study has paved a new insight in understanding 20 triazole analogues as potential inhibitors against HNE, MMP 2, MMP 9 and tyrosinase.
