Synthesis and tyrosinase inhibitory properties of novel isoquinoline urea/thiourea derivatives.

A new series of isoquinoline urea/thiourea derivatives (1-11) were synthesized, and their inhibitory effects on tyrosinase were evaluated. Isoquinoline urea/thiourea derivatives were obtained as a result of the reaction of 5-aminoisoquinoline with isocyanates or isothiocyanates. The result showed that all the synthesized compounds inhibited the tyrosinase… CONTINUE READING
