The research included preparing a high yield of new derivatives of cromoglicic acid have been created with new properties. Cromoglicic acid constitutes a major type of pharmaceutical organic compound. Its derivatives can be utilized in the manufacture of new types of drugs, possess a wide range of biological activity, and reduce side effects. The work included direct interaction for eight amino drugs (amoxicillin, ampicillin, folic acid, Mefenamic acid, Paracetamol, Theophenyl, cephalexin, and 4-aminoantipyrine) after converting acid into chloride using SOCl2 and DCM and the addition of (tri methylamine), T LC to control the chemical reaction and to characterize the new derivatives using FT-IR, 13CNMR and 1HNMR techniques. The antioxidant activity of the prepared compounds was examined by DPPH method and the results showed an excellent antioxidant activity of all these prepared compounds, much higher than that of ascorbic acid.
Cromoglicic acid is a mastocyte stabilizer (Figure 1). Its common maximum amount makes use of this drug with inside the remedy of bronchial allergies and conjunctivitis. Cromoglycate formulations consist of an amphoteric surfactant and an alkylated cetyl alcohol as vital components for the remedy of atopic dermatitis. A composition comprises cromoglicic acid, or salts thereof, in addition to hydrophilic macromolecular material. The composition is beneficial with inside the remedy of pores and skin wounds and accidents that produce secretions, including the ones resulting from dermatitis. Discloses cromoglicic acid esters which can be beneficial with inside the remedy of dermatitis in which a hypersensitive reaction, inflammation of the nasal mucosa (cromoglicic acid) and infrequently candidiasis (corticosteroids) take place . Some sufferers with AR, however, decide upon non-pharmacological therapies. These remedies are targeted both on eliminating allergens and secretions from the nasal mucosa, along with saline nasal irrigation .

Discloses cromoglicic acid esters which are beneficial with inside the remedy of dermatitis where hypersensitivity takes place . Heterocyclic compounds are the cyclic natural compounds which include at the least one hetero atom, the maximum not unusual place heteroatoms are the nitrogen, oxygen, and sculpture. However, heterocyclic jewelry containing different hetero atoms are also broadly known. Carbocyclic compound is a cyclic natural compound containing all carbon atoms in ring formation. Heterocyclic are the opposite numbers of monocyclic compounds. Thus, incorporation of oxygen, nitrogen, sulfur, or an atom of an associated detail into a natural ring shape in region of a carbon atom offers upward push to a heterocyclic compounds .
In the latest years, the prevalence of fungal and bacterial infections has accelerated dramatically. The huge use of antifungal and antibacterial pills in resistance to drug remedy towards fungal and antibacterial infections which brought about extreme fitness hazards  of new Oxadiazole incorporated with Imidazole and Pyrazole. It is famous that heterocyclic compounds having azole nucleus are critical pharmacophore which seem significantly in diverse forms of pharmaceutical agents, extensively implicated in biochemical procedures and show a range of pharmacological activities. These heterocyclic compounds shape a prime a part of natural chemistry; they may be extensively dispensed in nature and play an essential position in metabolism of residing cells. For their realistic programs variety from huge medical use to fields as numerous as medicine, agriculture, photochemistry, biocidal system, and polymer science .
Heterocyclic compounds were taken into consideration as one of the critical lessons of natural compounds that are used in lots of organic fields, because of it is miles pastime in a couple of illnesses. Biological molecules including DNA and RNA, chlorophyll, hemoglobin, nutrients, and a plenty of extra ones consists of the heterocyclic ring in the primary skeleton. There are lots of heterocyclic compounds that are have software in lots of unusual place sicknesses inclusive of tri-azine derivatives were used as antimicrobial herbicides, urinary antiseptics, and anti-inflammatory agents. Benz imidazole derivatives were reviews to own extensive variety of organic sports consisting of antibacterial, antifungal, antiviral, and anthelmintic . Chromones are benzoanelated γ-pyrone ring (4H-chromen-4-one, 4H-1- benzopyran-4-one) heterocyclic which are broadly allotted in nature. They were used due to the historic instances in conventional medicine 1 and are famous through their variety of pharmacological ownership, consisting of anti-allergic, anti-inflammatory, anti-diabetic, antitumor, and antimicrobial .
Chromones (nedocromil sodium and sodium cromoglycate) used as mast mobileular stabilizer, having an appropriate protection profile, however low efficacy. They are covered in tips as the second-line medicinal drugs in preliminary remedy steps and prevention of exercise-precipitated bronchial allergies . Cromolyn sodium administered with inside the first few days of lifestyles has now no longer been proven to save you continual lung sickness in preterm infants. This is due, in part, to irritation with inside the lungs. Theoretically, Cromolyn sodium is a drug that could assist save you this irritation. It is fairly secure and aspect outcomes are rare. It may be given through nebulizer or aerosol inhaler with inside the first few days of lifestyles to try and save you continual lung sickness .
The early experiments [11-13] caused the idea that those pills acted especially on mast cells to suppress histamine release, however in addition, they inhibit cytokine generation . The Chromones are further powerful in different fashions of irritation  and have an impact on many aspects of the inflammatory manner in vivo  or in vitro, e.g., eicosanoid generation ,  which might be unrelated to mast mobileular activation. Any putative mechanism of motion ought to include this various pharmacology.

Results and Discussion
The solubility for synthesized compounds was studied by using different polarity solvents, all prepared compounds are partially soluble in water due to the relatively high molecular weight and they are completely soluble in each of DMSO and ethanol. All synthesized compounds are insoluble in each diethyl ether, petroleum ether and ethyl acetate because the polarity for prepared compounds is higher than the polarity of these solvents (Table 2).
To enhance the properties of cromoglicic acid (CGA) and reduce its side effects, new amino-containing drugs were synthesized by the formation of amide bonds. The compounds (A1-A8) were prepared by one pot reaction of a Cromoglicic acid with amino drug in SOCl2 and TEA (Scheme 1).

The findings revealed that the majority of the tested compounds have a good antibacterial activity. These bacteria were chosen because of their wide importance in the clinical field, as they cause a variety of diseases in addition to their various antibiotic and chemical drug resistances. The experiment was done 3 times with different concentrations and the best concentration at 0.1 mg /mL. Table 3 reveals that the produced compounds have biological activity against the bacteria because they may suppress the bacteria by varying the amounts of the compounds. This difference in toxicity is due to change in functional group or structures, as depicted in Figures 2 and 3.
Compounds antiradical test was carried out using the standard DPPH method.
Figure 4 and Table 4 indicated the comparison with normal (ascorbic acid) activity (IC50=28.72 mg/mL), and the majority of compounds offered moderate to high antioxidant activity. The maximum activity was attributable to the OH group in compounds (A1-A8) with a considerable activity, and ascorbic acid, a generic medication, with an IC50 of 28.72 mg/mL. The forces for the antioxidant activity of the test substances are in the following sequence when compared with the reference: A5>A2>A1>A6>A4>A3>A8>A7.
In this study, it is possible to prepare new, developed, and suitable drug derivatives in the treatment of infection prevention, because most of the prepared derivatives gave good results for biological activity and anti-oxidant. The prepared compounds gave a large proportion of the output and were prepared from simple and available materials. All prepared compounds were stable in various conditions.
