Abstract: A series of 9-(pyridin-2’-yl)-aminoacridines was prepared and analyzed for their ability to change the thermal denaturation temperature of genomic calf thymus DNA. Development of a QSAR equation indicated that electron withdrawing groups on the pyridine ring promoted the interaction with double stranded DNA.
Keywords: Acridine; QSAR; pyridine; DNA.
