A new series of 1,3,4-oxadiazole derivatives (3a-j) were synthesized by reacting p-toluic benzhydrazide (1) and substituted aromatic aldehydes (2) in the presence of ceric ammonium nitrate as catalyst and dichloromethane as a solvent medium. The structures of the new compounds were assigned based on IR, 1H-NMR, and mass spectral data and further evaluated for their in vitro anti-inflammatory potential using various protein denaturation methods following bovine serum and egg albumin assay. Some tested compounds 3e, 3f, and 3i displayed moderate anti-inflammatory activity compared to the standard diclofenac sodium.
