A series of halogenated flavanones were synthesized from 2-hydroxychalcones and tested for their cytotoxicity against a panel of human cancer cell lines. Among the synthesized compounds, 3',7-dichloroflavanone (2d) showed the highest activity against MCF-7, LNCaP, PC3, Hep-G2, KB and SK-N-MC cells. However, 3',6-dichloroflavanone (2g) with IC(50) value of(More)
A novel series of chalcones and flavanones discriminated by the presence of a 3,4-dimethoxyphenyl moiety in their structures were synthesized as anti-cancer agents. The cytotoxicity evaluation of the analogs against the MCF-7, MDA-MB-231 (human breast cancer), and SK-N-MC (human neuroblastoma) cell lines demonstrated that the introduction of a halogen on(More)
