© 2020 Informa UK Limited, trading as Taylor & Francis Group.A series of some novel 2-(p-tert-butylphenyl)-5-(3-substituted-propionamido)benzoxazole derivatives have been designed, synthesized, evaluated for antimicrobial activity and have performed molecular docking studies against penicillin-binding protein 4 (PBP4) and active and allosteric site of PBP2a; were calculated some theoretical quantum parameters and absorption, distribution, metabolism and excretion (ADME) descriptors. B9 acted at minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) = 8 µg/mL against S. aureus, E. faecalis and their drug-resistant isolates and also formed with GLU145 (1.74 Å) and ILE144 (1.89 Å) two hydrogen bonds at allosteric site of PBP2a with Glide emodel score: −42.168. ΔE of compound B9 had moderate value of all compounds with 0.14742. (Figure presented.) Communicated by Ramaswamy H. Sarma.
