Abstract:As our ongoing work on research of anti-HIV-1 inhibitors, fifteen N-arylsulfonyl-3-formylindoles (3ao) were designed and prepared through two step synthetic route. Firstly, 3-formylindoles (2a-c) were synthesized via the Vilsmeier-Haack reaction. Subsequently, treatment of 2a-c with the appropriate arylsulfonyl chlorides led to the corresponding target compounds in excellent yields. All analogues were also preliminary evaluated in vitro for their inhibitory activity against HIV-1 replication. Among of all the … Show more
scite is a Brooklyn-based startup that helps researchers better discover and understand research articles through Smart Citations–citations that display the context of the citation and describe whether the article provides supporting or contrasting evidence. scite is used by students researchers from around the world and is funded in part by the National Science Foundation and the National Institute on Drug Abuse of the National Institutes of Health.
