Dihydropyridine derivatives 1-31 were synthesized via one-pot solvent free condition and screened for in vitro against α-amylase and α-glucosidase enzyme. The synthetic derivatives 1-31 showed good α-amylase inhibition in the range of IC50 = 2.21 ± 0.06-9.97 ± 0.08 µM, as compared to the standard drug acarbose (IC50 = 2.01 ± 0.1 µM) and α-glucosidase inhibition in the range of IC50 = 2.31 ± 0.09-9.9 ± 0.1 µM as compared to standard acarbose (IC50 = 2.07 ± 0.1 µM), respectively. To determine the mode of binding interactions of synthetic molecules with active sites of enzyme, molecular docking studies were also performed. Different spectroscopic techniques such as 1H, 13C NMR, EI-MS, and HREI-MS were used to characterize all the synthetic compounds. Copyright © 2020 Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved.
