The pharmacological inhibition of soluble epoxide hydrolase (sEH) was shown to reduce inflammation and pain. Herein, we described a series of newly synthesized sEH inhibitors with the trident-shaped skeleton. Intensive structural modifications led to the identification of compound B15 as a potent sEH inhibitor with an IC value of 0.03±0.01 nM. Furthermore, compound B15 showed satisfactory metabolic stability in human liver microsomes with a half-time of 197 min. In carrageenan-induced inflammatory pain rat model, compound B15 exhibited a better therapeutic effect compared to t-AUCB and Celecoxib, which demonstrated the proof of potential as anti-inflammatory agents for pain relief.
