A series of heterocyclic 2-(3,5-dimethylphenyl)tryptamine derivatives was prepared and evaluated on a rat gonadotropin releasing hormone receptor assay. The carbon tether length and heterocyclic ring attached to the amino group of 2-(3,5-dimethylphenyl)tryptamine were varied. Several of these derivatives were potent GnRH antagonists with the most potent compound having an IC50 of 16nM.
