In spite of the presence of a large number of chemotherapeutic agents, they cause severe side effects and development of resistance by cancer cells even against drugs developed by targeted therapy such as imitanib [2]. Therefore, there is a continuous need for the development of novel molecules that can overcome cellular resistance. Since the introduction of 5-flourouracil in the late 1950s as a potent anticancer agent, many uracil and thiouracil derivatives have been reported as cytotoxic agents [3]. In addition, 4-aryl-5-cyanopyrimidinone derivatives were recently reported as cytotoxic agents [4–7]. In most of these derivatives, alkylation of the 2-thio group especially with alkylamino or acetanilide moieties (such as compounds I–IV, Fig. 1) was reported Research on Chemical Intermediates Springer Journals
