Abstract

The present report describes the synthesis, IR spectra, 3-dimensional structure of the compound 2,4-dichloro-6-methylquinoline and evaluation of its anti-cancer activity using propidium iodide (PI) staining and annexin binding assay techniques. This derivative of quinoline was synthesized from the mixture of p-toluidine and malonic acid and synthesis has been achieved in a one-pot reaction from an aryl amine, malonic acid and phosphorous oxychloride. Crystallographic data reveals that the crystals belong to triclinic crystal system with space group P-1 with the unit cell dimensions of a = 7.14(1) Å, b = 11.53(1) Å, c = 11.97(1) Å and α = 90.18° (10), β = 106.31° (10), γ = 91.07° (10). The in vitro anti-cancer assay indicated that compound has cytotoxic and apoptotic activity on human oral squamous carcinoma (KB) cell line, thus it could be developed as a potent anti-cancer agent.
