The optimized molecular structure, vibrational frequencies, corresponding vibrational assignments of 2-[(E)-2-(2-bromophenyl)ethenyl]quinoline-6-carboxylic acid have been investigated experimentally and theoretically using Gaussian09 software package. Potential energy distribution of the normal modes of vibrations was done using GAR2PED program. H-1 NMR chemical shifts calculations were carried out by using B3LYP functional with SDD basis set. The HOMO and LUMO analysis is used to determine the charge transfer within the molecule. The stability of the molecule arising from hyper-conjugative interaction and charge delocalization has been analyzed using NBO analysis. MEP was performed by the DFT method and the predicted infrared intensities and Raman activities have also been reported. The calculated geometrical parameters are in agreement with that of similar derivatives. The title compound forms a stable complex with PknB as is evident from the binding affinity values and the molecular docking results suggest that the compound might exhibit inhibitory activity against PknB and this may result in development of new anti-tuberculostic agents.
