A some of synthesized 2-(4-(6-chloro-2-benzoxazolyloxy)phenoxy)-N-phenyl propionamide derivativesa substrates were found to selectivity significantly with both rice plant (Oryza sativa L.) and barnyard grass (Echinochloa crus-galli) for those her- bicidal activities with post emergence in up land. The selectivity of substrates against rice plant better than that of Fenoxaprop-ethyl. The structure activity relationship (SAR) n the selectivity of N-phenyl substituents were analyzed by the Free-Wilson and Hansch method. The SAR approach against barnyard grass is shown that the optimal ($({\pi})_{opt.}=1.60$) hydrophobicity and electron donating effects ($0<{\sigma}$ & 0$(ES)_{opt.}=0.87$) so that the herbicidal activity against rice plant can be decreased. The significance of these results on the selectivity between barnyard grass and rice plant is discussed. And it is assumed that the 2-ethoxy-3-methoxy-4-dimethylamino group substituent ($pI_{50}$=6.60, 1g/ha) is selected as the most highest herbicidal activity against barngard grass in green house.
