The synthesis of 4-(1-adamantyl)-4,4-diarylbutylamines 1, 5-(1-adamantyl)-5,5-diarylpentylamines 2 and 6-(1-adamantyl)-6,6-diarylhexylamines 3 is described and the σ1, σ2-receptors and sodium channels binding affinity of compounds 1 were investigated. The in vitro activity of compounds 1, 2 and 3 against main cancer cell lines is significant. One of the(More)
The synthesis of the adamantane phenylalkylamines 2a-d, 3a-c, and 4a-e is described. These compounds exhibited significant antiproliferative activity, in vitro, against eight cancer cell lines tested. The σ(1), σ(2), and sodium channel binding affinities of compounds 2a, 3a, 4a, and 4c-e were investigated. The most interesting analogue, 4a, exhibited(More)
The synthesis of N-{4-[a-(1-adamantyl)benzyl]phenyl}piperazines 2a-e is described. The in vitro antiproliferative activity of most compounds against main cancer cell lines is significant. The σ(1), σ(2)-receptors and sodium channels binding affinity of compounds 2 were investigated. One of the most active analogs, 2a, had an interesting in vivo anticancer(More)
The synthesis of a number of new benzothiopyrano[4,3,2-cd]isoindole aminoderivatives designed as structural analogues of the key metabolite of the anticancer agent Ledacrine (nitracrine) and their in vitro cytotoxic activity evaluation against HCT-116, MES-SA, and MES-SA/Dx cancer cell lines is reported. The majority of the derivatives possessed noticeable(More)
The preparation of 4-deazaformycin A has been achieved. The synthesis features the condensation of a suitably substituted, lithiated 4-picoline with 2,3,5-tri-O-benzyl-d-ribonolactone, dehydration of the resulting hemiacetal, and ionic hydrogenation, followed by manipulation of the protecting groups and subsequent ring closure with the formation of(More)
