|Chemical structure of isoxazole|
Isoxazole is an azole with an oxygen atom next to the nitrogen.
Isoxazoles are found in some natural products, such as ibotenic acid. Isoxazoles also form the basis for a number of drugs, including the COX-2 inhibitor valdecoxib (Bextra). Furoxan is a nitric oxide donor.
- Oxazole, an analog with the nitrogen atom in position 3.
- Pyrrole, an analog without the oxygen atom.
- Furan, an analog without the nitrogen atom.
