A series of 4(5-(4-chlorophenyl)furan-2-yl)-6-phenylpyrimidin-2-amine derivatives (5a-h) were synthesized from 2-(4-chlorophenyl)-5-styrylfuran (3a-h) with guanidine nitrate in absolute ethanol under conventional method and evaluated for their in vitro anticancer, antimicrobial activities and in silico studies. The chemical structure of the furan moiety containing substituted amino pyrimidine derivatives (5a-h) were elucidated from spectroscopic analysis like infrared, 1H & 13C NMR spectral data and CHN analysis. in silico docking studies were predicted for the synthesized compounds (5a-h) using bacterial protein 1UAG and in silico ADME predictions were also carried for the synthesized compounds (5a-h). The in vitro anticancer study was carried the compound 5b by MMT assay. Compound 5b shows the LC50 value of 120.15 ± 0.003 μg/mL. in vitro Antimicrobial activities were screened for the compounds (5a-h) using different strains. Compound 5h has electron withdrawing group in benzene ring substituted in the para position showed good antimicrobial activity against all the bacterial strains and fungal strains. in silico studies, compound 5h shows excellent docking score (-9.7 kcal/mol) compared with ciprofloxacin (-7.8 kcal/mol).
