1,2,4-Oxadiazole is one of the important heterocycles used by medicinal chemists in designing a new therapeutic molecule. The compounds containing this nucleus are reported to have a wide range of pharmaceutical and biological applications including anti-inflammatory and analgesic activities. The fused and pendent 1,2,4-oxadiazole moiety has been traced in a number of well established, commercially available drugs. This review article provides an up to date information about techniques adopted for the synthesis of 1,2,4-oxadiazoles, and their therapeutic importance as anti-inflammatory and analgesic agents.
