Background: The catalytically active site of CA enzyme is Zn (II) bound hydroxide ion part which acts as a strong nucleophile (at neutral pH) on the CO2 molecule bound in a hydrophobic pocket nearby. We designed a series of thiazolidinone molecules which are able to approach the active side by way of hydrophobic part and may interact with the hydroxide and Zn (II) by ring opening of thiazolidinone.
