In recent years, acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and alpha-glycosidase (alpha-gly) inhibition have emerged as a promising and important approach for pharmacological intervention in many diseases such as glaucoma, epilepsy, obesity, cancer, and Alzheimer's. In this manner, the preparation and enzyme inhibition activities of peripherally 1,2,3-triazole group substituted metallophthalocyanine derivatives with strong absorption in the visible region were presented. These novel metallophthalocyanine derivatives (2-6) effectively inhibited AChE, with K-i values in the range of 40.11 +/- 5.61 to 78.27 +/- 15.42 mu M. For alpha-glycosidase, the most effective K-i values of compounds 1 and 2 were with K-i values of 16.11 +/- 3.13 and 18.31 +/- 2.42 mu M, respectively. Also, theoretical calculations were investigated to compare the chemical and biological activities of the ligand (1) and its metal complexes (2-6). Biological activities of 1 and its complexes against acetylcholinesterase for ID 4M0E (AChE) and alpha-glycosidase for ID 1R47 (alpha-gly) are calculated. Theoretical calculations were compatible with the experimental results and these 1,2,3-triazole substituted phthalocyanine metal complexes were found to be efficient inhibitors for anticholinesterase and antidiabetic enzymes.
