Abstract: The structural and physicochemical requirements of 2-phenylpyrazolo[1,5-a]pyrimidin-3-yl-acetamides for binding with peripheral benzodiazepine receptor has been explored in the present QSAR study. The calculated hydrophobicity, logPcalc, shows a parabolic relation with the peripheral benzodiazepine receptor binding affinity, which suggests that the binding affinity increases with increase in the partition coefficient of the compounds until it reaches the critical value after which the affinity decreases. The range of the optimum values of logPcalc is between 5.423-5.819 as found from different equations. The width of the para substituents at R3 position is conducive for the binding affinity. The E-state values of the fragments like methyl, , and are conducive for the binding affinity, while E-state value of the fragment -F is detrimental to the binding affinity. The average distance sum of the connectivity (Balaban J) among different groups is also conducive for the binding affinity. The presence of methyl groups at R1 and R2 positions and the presence of substituents at R5 position are detrimental to the binding affinity, while presence of substituents at R3 position and the presence of methyl group at R6 position are conducive to the binding affinity.
