Click chemistry technique led to novel 1,2,3-triazole-quinine conjugates 8a-g, 10a-o, 11a-h and 13 utilizing benzotriazole-mediated synthetic approach with excellent yields. Some of the synthesized analogs (11a, 11d-h) exhibited antimalarial properties against Plasmodium falciparum strain 3D7 with potency higher than that of quinine (standard reference used) through in vitro standard procedure bio-assay. Statistically significant BMLR-QSAR model describes the bio-properties, validates the observed biological observations and identifies the most important parameters governing bio-activity.
