    Abstract :

    Abstract- Atenolol [(RS)-2-[4-(2-Hydroxy-3-isopropylaminopropoxy)-phenyl]acetamide], an amide derivative of phenyl acetic acid is a widely accepted anti-hypertensive drug for its adrenergic antagonistic properties i.e. a beta-adrenergic blocker possessing properties and potency similar to propranol, but without a negative inotropic effect. It behaves as a ligand molecule of to the active sites of the Beta-1 adrenergic signaling receptor protein target molecule on the cell membrane of Homo sapiens. It is extensively recommended for the long term management of patients with angina pectoris. Experimental theoretical and docking studies of the atenols is discussed. Various thermodynamic properties has been computed. Vibrational spectroscopic analysis has been extensively carried out.
