Compounds incorporating heterocyclic ring systems continue to attract considerable interest due to the wide range of biological activities they possess. Amongst them five membered heterocyclic compounds particularly azoles occupy a unique place in the realm of natural and synthetic organic chemistry. Keeping in mind the importance of azoles we have synthesized different series of compounds. Structure elucidation of all the synthesized compounds was done using different spectroscopic techniques such as FTIR, 1 H-NMR, 13 C-NMR, UV-VIS, Mass and Elemental analysis. In vitro antimicrobial screening of all the synthesized compounds was performed against gram positive and gram negative bacteria. The MIC was detected using the double dilution method. The results were compared by calculating percent inhibit area/mg of the compounds and the standard “amoxicillin”. The selected compounds were tested for cytotoxic results using MTT assay H9c2 cardiac myoblasts cell line and the results showed that all the compounds offered remarkable >80% viability to a concentration of 200 mg/mL.
