Abstract

Phenoxyacetohydrazide Schiff base analogs 128 have been synthesized and their in vitro β-glucouoronidase inhibition potential studied. Compounds 1 (IC50 = 9.20 ± 0.32 µM), 5 (IC50 = 9.47 ± 0.16 µM), 7 (IC50 = 14.7 ± 0.19 µM), 8 (IC50 = 15.4 ± 1.56 µM), 11 (IC50 = 19.6 ± 0.62 µM), 12 (IC50 = 30.7 ± 1.49 µM), 15 (IC50 = 12.0 ± 0.16 µM), 21 (IC50 = 13.7 ± 0.40 µM) and 22 (IC50 = 22.0 ± 0.14 µM) showed promising β-glucuronidase inhibition activity, better than the standard (D-saccharic acid-1,4-lactone, IC50 = 48.4 ± 1.25 µM).
