Brief resume of the intended work : 6.1 Need for the study: Among the wide variety of heterocycles that have been explored for developing pharmaceutically important molecules, 1, 3, 4-oxadiazole derivatives have played a vital role in the medicinal chemistry. It was observed from the literature that certain five membered heterocyclic compounds possess interesting biological and pharmacological activities. Oxadiazoles are five membered heterocyclic compounds with two nitrogen atoms and one oxygen atom. They are synthesized by ring condensation and rearrangements. Depending on the position of hetero atoms they are named as 1,2,3:- ;1,2,4:- ;1,2,5:- and 1,3,4-oxadiazoles. All of them were reported to possess one or the other biological activities. In general N and O heterocycles were reported to possess wide variety of biological activities .The incorporation of various heterocyclic moieties with 1,3,4oxadiazoles was proved to show enhanced activities. 1, 3, 4- oxadiazoles possess various biological and pharmacological activities viz; antimicrobial1, anti-inflammatory2, ulcerogenic2, lipid peroxidation2, antifungal3, anticancer 4,antitubercular5 etc. In the present work, 2-furoic acid has taken as the starting material. Furan derivatives, by virtue of their structures and functional groups, are used in the preparation of many physiologically active intermediates employed in medicines and

agrochemicals .Further furan and its substituted compounds[furan-2-aldehyde, furoic 3 acid] have showed varied pharmacological activities.
