Most of the nonsteroidal anti-inflammation drugs (NSAID) have some demerits depending on type and nature of physical conditions and limit of doses. Herein, we report the optimization of Naproxen and its degradants employing density functional theory (DFT) with B3LYP/6-31g+(d,p) level theory to elucidate their thermal and molecular orbital properties. Molecular docking and nonbonding interactions have been performed against prostaglandin synthase protein (5F19) to search binding affinity and interactions of all compounds with the respective protein. Pharmacokinetic properties also calculated to search their absorption, metabolism, and carcinogenicity.
