Abstract: Simple synthesis and biological activities of modafinil derivatives are described. The key reactions include condensation of acid and propargyl alcohol, subsequent 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition reaction of alkynes and (3-azido-propyl)cyclohexane or (4-azido-butyl)benzene in the presence of sodium ascorbate and CuSO4·5H2O in excellent yield. They were then evaluated for the suppression of LPS-induced NO generation in vitro. It was found that all compounds showed moderate effects for suppression of LPS-induced NO generation.
Keywords: benzhydrylsulfanyl-[1,2,3]triazol-4-yl-methyl ester; benzhydrylsulfinyl-1,2,3]triazol-4-yl-methyl ester; NO-generation; condensation; 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition reaction
