Abstract: The manuscript describes the synthesis of 10-substituted dihydroartemisinin derivatives containing N-aryl phenylethenesulfonamide groups and their in vitro anti-tumor activities against the HT-29, MDA-MB-231, U87MG, H460, A549 and HL-60 cancer cell lines and the normal WI-38 cell line. Most tested compounds showed enhanced cytotoxic activities and good selectivity toward the MDA-MB-231, HT-29 and HL-60 cell lines, with IC50 values in the single-digit μM range as compared with dihydroartemisinin (DHA), and all of them displayed less toxicity towards WI-38 cells. Among them, compounds 3c and 6c with trifluoromethoxy groups on the N-phenyl ring were found to be most active compounds against the six tested cancer cell lines.
Keywords: 10-substituted dihydroartemisinin derivatives; synthesis; anti-cancer
