    Project supported by the Program for Changjiang Scholars and Innovative Research Team in University (No. IRT13095), the National Natural Science Foundation of China (Nos. 21462049, 21332007, U1402227), and the Natural Science Foundation of Yunnan Province (Nos. 2013FA028, 2012FB113, 2010GA014).

A series of novel hybrid compounds between aza-brazilin and imidazole have been prepared from 3-(3,4-dimeth- oxyphenyl)propanoic acid. Their structures were confirmed by 1H NMR, 13C NMR, HR-ESI-MS and X-ray crystallographic analysis. These compounds have been evaluated in vitro against a panel of human tumor cell lines. 2-Methyl-3-(naphthalen- 2-ylmethyl)-1-(2-oxo-2-(4,9,10-trimethoxy-6,6a,7,11b-tetrahydro-5H-indeno[2,1-c]quinolin-5-yl)ethyl)-1H-benzo[d]imidazol- 3-ium bromide (26) was found to be the most potent derivative against four strains human tumor lines and more active than cisplatin, and exhibited the most potent cytotoxic activities selectively against HL-60, MCF-7 and SW-480.

Key words: aza-brazilin, imidazole, hybrid compound, cytotoxic activity
