Abstract: A series of new N1-(coumarin-7-yl)amidrazones incorporating N-piperazines and related congeners were synthesized by reacting the hydrazonoyl chloride derived from 7-amino-4-methylcoumarin with the appropriate piperazines. The chemical structures of the newly prepared compounds were supported by elemental analyses, 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR, and ESI-HRMS spectral data. The antitumor activity of the newly synthesized compounds was evaluated. Among all the compounds tested, 7-{2-[1-(4-(1-benzyl-2-ethyl-4-nitro-1H-imidazol-5-yl)piperazin-1-yl)-2-oxopropylidene]hydrazinyl}-4-methyl-2H-chromen-2-one (3n) was the most potent against MCF-7 and K562 cells, with IC50 values of 20.2 and 9.3 μM, respectively.
Keywords: 7-aminocoumarins; N-(coumarin-7-yl)hydrazonoyl chloride; 1-piperazinyl amidrazones; nitrileimine; antitumor activity
