New imidazo[1,2-a]quinoxaline derivatives: synthesis and in vitro activity against human melanoma.

New imidazo[1,2-a]quinoxaline analogues have been synthesized in good yields via a bimolecular condensation of 2-imidazole carboxylic acid, followed by a coupling with ortho-fluoroaniline and subsequent substitution on the imidazole ring by Suzuki Cross-coupling reaction using microwave assistance. Antitumor activities of these derivatives were evaluated by… (More)
