1,2,4-Triazole derivatives containing a piperazine nucleus (4a-d and 10) were prepared starting from 1-(2-methoxyphenyl)piperazine or ethyl 4-(4-amino-2-fluorophenyepiperazine-1-carboxylate via several steps. The synthesis of fifteen compounds (7a-1 and 13a-c), which can be considered as new analogues of azole class antifungals was performed starting from 1,2,4-triazoles (4a-d and 10) via three steps containing the condensation with 2-bromo-1-(4-chlorophenyl)ethanone, reduction of carbonyl group to alcohol and alkylation of OH group, respectively. All the reactions were examined under conventional, ultrasound and microwave irradiation conditions as green chemistry techniques, and optimum conditions were defined. The newly synthesized compounds were screened for their biological potentials including antimicrobial, antioxidant, antiurease and anti a-glucosidase activities and promising results were obtained. The enzyme inhibitory potentials of these compounds were further validated through molecular docking.
