Abstract
The N-5-C-6 double bond of NK109 (an antitumor benzo[c]phenanthridine alkal oid) is easily reduced under biological environment. To suppress the inacti vation caused by reduction, we synthesized 5-, 6-, and 8-substituted NK109. 5-Substituted derivatives (4a-c) were reduced more easily than NK109. 6-Su bstituted ones (10a-f) inhibited biological reduction, but showed weak cyto toxic activity. 8-O-Substituted ones (13a-h), especially 8-O-hydroxyethyl N K109 (13d), suppressed biological reduction and exhibited strong cytotoxic activity.
