Abstract: In the search of new HIV-1 integrase (IN) inhibitors, we synthesized a series of multimeric 5,6-dihydroxyindole-2-carboxylic acid (DHICA) derivatives. Preliminary results indicate that hyperbranched architectures could represent a peculiar molecular requisite for the development of new antiviral lead compounds.
Keywords: Hyperbranched polymers; AB2 monomers; DHICA; HIV-1; antiviral agents.
