Biologically stable inhibitors of soluble epoxide hydrolases are provided. The inhibitors can be used, for example, to selectively inhibit epoxide hydrolase in therapeutic applications such as treating inflammation, for use in affinity separations of the epoxide hydrolases, and in agricultural applications. A preferred class of compounds for practicing the invention have the structure shown by Formula 1 ##STR1## wherein X and Y is each independently nitrogen, oxygen, or sulfur, and X can further be carbon, at least one of R.sub.1 -R.sub.4 is hydrogen, R.sub.2 is hydrogen when X is nitrogen but is not present when X is sulfur or oxygen, R.sub.4 is hydrogen when Y is nitrogen but is not present when Y is sulfur or oxygen, R.sub.1 and R.sub.3 are each independently a substituted or unsubstituted alkyl, haloalkyl, cycloalkyl, aryl, acyl, or heterocyclic, or being a metabolite or degradation product thereof.
