Our results demonstrated that incorporation of a piperazine ring Accepted 13 February 2018 into the spacer composition signiﬁcantly improved the protective potency in MC65 cell models. Our Available online 14 February 2018 results also suggested that the optimal spacer length for such bivalent compounds ranges from 17 to 21 atoms, and further spacer extension beyond 21 atoms results no further optimization. Notably, incor- Keywords: poration of a piperazine ring into the spacer diminished the biometal chelating capacity for these bivalent Alzheimer’s disease compounds, thus
