When the activity results are examined, although the antibacterial effects of benzoxazole derivatives are weaker than standard drugs; 3N13 and 3N19 against Candida albicans isolate showed the closest activity to fluconazole with MIC: 16 µg/ml. The cytotoxicity test was measured at a concentration of 100 µM and a 24-h incubation period. The results showed that the compounds had weak activities against two cell lines. Molecular docking studies of synthesized compounds were performed on sterol 14α-demethylase protein (CYP51) and protein-ligand interactions of 3N13, the most effective derivative against C. albicans isolate, were showed (PDB: 5TZ1). Estimated ADME profiles of compounds were calculated and also 3N13’s were calculated HUMO-LUMO energies, molecular electrostatic potential analysis, and geometric optimization parameters with 6-311 G+ (d,p) base set using DFT/B3LYP theory, and the results were displayed.
