Abstract

A series of 2-aminofluorenes N-alkylated with nitroxides or their precursors were synthesized. The new compounds were tested on hydroxyl radical and peroxyl radical scavenging ability and inflammatory assay on the endothelial brain cells. In agreement with ROS scavenging ability the same compound 7-bromo-N -[(1-Oxyl-2,2,6,6-tetramethyl-1,2,3,6-tetrahydropyridine-4yl)methyl]- 9H-fluoren-2-amine (3b) and its hydroxylamine salt (3b/OH/HCl) showed the anti-inflammatory property on the endothelial brain cells.
