The optimized molecular structure, vibrational frequencies, corresponding vibrational assignments of ethyl-6-(4-chlorophenyl)-4-(4-fluoro-phenyl)-2-oxocyclohex-3-ene-1-carboxylate have been investigated experimentally and theoretically using Gaussian09 software. The title compound was optimized using the HF and DFT levels of theory. The geometrical parameters are in agreement with the XRD data. The stability of the molecule has been analyzed by NBO analysis. The HOMO and LUMO analysis is used to determine the charge transfer within the molecule. Molecular electrostatic potential was performed by the DFT method. As can be seen from the MEP map of the title compound, regions having the negative potential are over the electro negative atoms, the region having the positive potential are over the phenyl rings and the remaining species are surrounded by zero potential. First hyperpolarizability is calculated in order to find its role in non linear optics. The title compound binds at the active sites of both CypD and beta-secretase and the molecular docking results draw the conclusion that the compound might exhibit beta-secretase inhibitory activity which could be utilized for development of new anti-alzheimeric drugs with mild CypD inhibitory activity.
