Abstract

In our ongoing research on novel anticancer agents with 4-anilinoquinazoline scaffolds, a series of novel 2-chloromethyl-4(3H)-quinazolinones were needed as key intermediates. An improved one-step synthesis of 2-chloromethyl-4(3H)-quinazolinones utilizing o-anthranilic acids as starting materials was described. Based on it, 2-hydroxy-methyl-4(3H)-quinazolinones were conveniently prepared in one pot. Moreover, two novel 4-anilinoquinazoline derivatives substituted with chloromethyl groups at the 2-position were synthesized and showed promising anticancer activity in vitro.
Keywords: 2-chloromethyl-4(3H)-quinazolinones; anticancer activity; 4-anilino-quinazoline 2-chloromethyl-4(3H)-quinazolinones; anticancer activity; 4-anilino-quinazoline
