Abstract: A series of 1-acyl-3,5-bis(benzylidene)-4-piperidones 3-7 were designed and synthesized as novel cytotoxic agents. These compounds displayed potent cytotoxic properties towards human Molt4/C8, CEM, HSC-2, HSC-3 and HSC-4 neoplasms and also to murine L1210 cells. The majority of the compounds have sub-micromolar or very low micromolar IC50 and CC50 values and are significantly more potent than the reference alkylating drug melphalan. Evaluation of these compounds against non-malignant HGF and HPLF cells revealed the tumour-specific toxicity. In particular, 3e emerged as a promising lead cytotoxic agent which caused apoptosis and PARP1 cleavage in HSC-2 cells.
