Objective: Microbial resistance to currently marketed drugs is a serious problem worldwide and there is a vital need to develop novel antibiotics. Enoyl-ACP reductase (FabI) is essential for fatty acid biosynthesis and hence serves as an appealing target for antibacterials against methicillin resistant S. aureus. The present study focuses on the synthesis, antibacterial and saFab1 docking studies of three new series of quinoline derivatives: 5-[(quinolin-8-yloxy) methyl]-1,3,4-oxadiazole-2(3H)-thiones, N-(2,5-dimethyl-1H-pyrrol-1-yl)-2oxyacetamides and Methods: Three different substituted hydrazides were synthesized from substituted quinolinols. These hydrazides were allowed to undergo further reactions with carbon disulphide, 2,5-hexanedione and ethyl acetoacetate respectively to prepare 1,3,4-oxadiazole-2-thiones, N-substituted pyrrole acetamides and pyrazol-3-ones. The synthesized hydrazide derivatives were subjected to antimicrobial studies against Staphylococcus aureus. Docking studies were carried out using enoyl-ACP reductase crystal structure complexed with NADPH. 2-(oxyacetyl)-5-methyl-2,4-dihydro-3H-pyrazol-3-ones with integrated ether linkages. Results: 5-{[(2-methylquinolin-8-yl) oxy] methyl}-1, 3, 4-oxadiazole-2(3H)-thione (2b) with a methyl substituent on the quinoline ring was found to display significant antibacterial potential against S. aureus. Good binding interactions were observed in subsequent docking studies via formation of Fab1-NAD+ Conclusion: 1, 3, 4-oxadiazole-2(3H)-thione (2b) was found to exhibit promising antibacterial potential against S. aureus
