Zhang et al. Introduction It is well known that amsacrine (Fig. 1, left) is an antineoplastic agent on the market, being widely used to treat acute lymphoblastic leukemia [1]. This compound contains a planar fused ring system in the form of an acridine moiety, i.e., a fused tricyclic heterocycle containing a nitrogen atom. It is reported that its derivatives have significant biological activities, such as anti-HIV-1 activity [2], antitumor activity [3, 4], antibacterial activities [5], and antimalarial activity [6]. In addition, they have also been used as various kinds of inhibitors, for example, anticholinesterase inhibitors [7], botulinum neurotoxin (BoNT) inhibitors [8], topoisomerase inhibitors [9, 10], and human carbonic http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Research on Chemical Intermediates Springer Journals
