Mannich bases were selected for 2D QSAR study to derive meaningful relationship between the structural features and analgesic activity. Using the knowledge of important features a novel series was designed to obtain improved analgesic activity. A series of novel Mannich bases 1-(N-substituted amino)methyl]-2-substituted benzimidazole derivatives were synthesized and were screened for analgesic activity. Some of these compounds showed promising analgesic activity when compared with the standard drug diclofenac sodium.
