A new series of oxazolones and triazinones were designed and synthesized and evaluated against both COX-1 and COX-2 enzymes. Full structure elucidation of the new derivatives was performed using microanalyses, IR, 1H NMR, 13C NMR and mass spectra. Most of the derivatives showed good inhibitory activity against COX-2 enzyme specifically compounds IIIc, IIIe,(More)
