A series of dehydroabietic acid (DHAA) acyl-thiourea derivatives were designed and synthesized as potent antitumor agents. The in vitro pharmacological screening results revealed that the target compounds exhibited potent cytotoxicity against HeLa, SK-OV-3 and MGC-803 tumor cell lines, while they showed lower cytotoxicity against HL-7702 normal human river(More)
A novel, simple, and efficient method for the synthesis of 4,5-dihydropyrazole derivatives has been developed. The reaction proceeded through the base-induced isomerization of easily accessible propargyl alcohols followed by cyclization of α,β-unsaturated hydrazones. Furthermore, selected compounds 3ab and 3ac exhibited good activities against Bel-7404(More)
A series of novel coumarin-containing α-aminophosphonates with two chiral centers were synthesized and a single-crystal structure of compound 8g (8g′, (R)-diethyl ((S)-2-(4-methyl-2-oxo-2H-chromen-7-yloxy)propanamido)(2-bromophenyl)methylphosphonate) was obtained. The in vitro antitumor activities of compound 8a–8g′ against human pulmonary carcinoma cell(More)
Several rhein-phosphonate derivatives (5a-c) were synthesized and evaluated for in vitro cytotoxicity against HepG-2, CNE, Spca-2, Hela and Hct-116 cell lines. Some compounds showed relatively high cytotoxicity. Especially compounds 5b exhibited the strongest cytotoxicity against HepG-2 and Spca-2 cells (IC50 was 8.82 and 9.01 µM), respectively. All the(More)
A series of novel coumarin-containing α-aminophosphonates were synthesized and evaluated for their antitumor activities against Human colorectal (HCT-116), human nasopharyngeal carcinoma (human KB) and human lung adenocarcinoma (MGC-803) cell lines in vitro. Compared with 7-hydroxy-4-methylcoumarin (4-MU), most of the derivatives showed an improved(More)
Series of novel hybrids of alizarin and diamide scaffold (3a–3h, 7a–7h) were designed and synthesized. In vitro antitumor activities of all compounds against HepG-2, CNE, Spca-2, Hct-116, and MGC-803 cell lines were evaluated, and employing standard MTT assay compared with commercial anticancer drug 5-fluorouracil (5-FU). Compounds 7b, 7c, 7d, and 7e showed(More)
Phytochemical investigation of the ethanol extract obtained from the aerial parts of the Euphorbia altotibetic PAULS. Grown in China resulted in the isolation of three new cholestane-type and three new ergostane-type steroids (cholest-5-en-2β, 4β-diol; cholest-5-en-1β, 4β-diol; cholest-5-en-1α, 3β, 4α -triol; (22E)-ergosta-7,9,22-trien- 3β-ol β-D-glucoside;(More)
A dehydroabietyl derivative 2 bearing a 2-(2'-hydroxyphenyl)benzimidazole unit was synthesized and its sensing behaviors toward metal ions were investigated by UV-Vis and fluorescence spectroscopy methods. In THF solution, compound 2 exhibited excellent selectivity for CuII over miscellaneous other metal ions including CrII, MnII, CoII, NiII, ZnII, CdII,(More)
