In this study, new compounds of pyrazolone heterocyclic derivatives were synthesized by reaction of 5-methyl pyrazol-3-one with appropriate substituted aromatic aldehydes to obtain various substituted 4-benzylidene-5-methyl-2,4-dihydro-3H-pyrazol-3-one (2a–j), which on treatment with benzyl chloride afforded the compound (3a–j). The synthesized compounds were evaluated for their in vitro cytotoxic activity by two models—Brine shrimp lethality bioassay and SRB assay.
