Twenty three substituted pyridylpyridones were designed and performed for molecular docking studies against α-amylase enzyme. The top three hit molecules were synthesized and characterized by 1H NMR, 13C NMR, ESI-mass and FT-IR spectroscopic techniques. Experimental biological applications were studied for these compounds. The DFT calculations were executed for the hit compounds. In addition, molecular electrostatic potential mapping was also executed for additional support.
