In order to obtain new compounds with antitumoural action the N-(metaacylaminobenzoyl)-α-acylaminobenzoyl)-α-aminoacids 4-9 were prepared. Thesecompounds were subsequently converted into the corresponding δ2-oxazolin-5-ones 10-15,which in turn were submitted to a ring opening reaction with di-(β-chloroethyl)amine toafford the peptide supported N-mustards 16-21, which showed low toxicity and cytostaticactivity similar to that of sarcolisine against the Ehrlich ascite and Walker 253carcinosarcoma.
Keywords: N-(acylaminobenzoyl)-α-aminoacids; Δ2-oxazolin-5-ones; anticancer agents; N-(acylaminobenzoyl)-α-aminoacids; Δ2-oxazolin-5-ones; anticancer agents;
