Abstract

Nine novel anthra[1,2-d]imidazole-6,11-diones, differing in their side chain, were synthesized. UV-vis spectroscopy and viscometric titrations of these molecules with duplex DNA were used to assess their binding with DNA. Five of the nine compounds showed high inhibition activity against topoisomerase I of Leishmania donoVani, with the one bearing the tetrazole side chain exhibiting an $IC_{50}$ $\sim 1 \mu M$. The inhibition activities were not related with their DNA binding affinity and depended on the nature of the side chain.
