The synthesis, pharmacological properties and delivery characteristics in simulated aqueous gastric fluid of a series of symmetrical nitrogenated C2-substituted pyrrolo[2,3-f]quinolines are described. The cytotoxicity of the target molecules (5a-h) was evaluated in the human non-small lung cancer cell line NSCLCN16- L16 in vitro. One compound (5e) showed sufficient activity (IC50 = 26.4 μM) and satisfactory release characteristics from solid pharmaceutical formulations.
