Our previous results have shown that various diazenes are cytotoxic to different tumor cells and can even revert the resistance to cisplatin and vincristine. We also demonstrated that unsymmetrical diazenedicarboxamides 1 and 2 exhibited promising cytotoxicity. The aim of the present study was to synthesize new… CONTINUE READING
