Quinoxaline-2, 3-dione obtained from cyclocondensation reaction of o-phenylene diamine with oxalic acid, was reacted with chlorosulphonic acid under cold condition followed by a reaction with various benzimidazoles to give 2, 3- dioxo-1, 2, 3, 4-tetrahydroquinoxaline-6-sulphonyl benzimidazoles in satisfactory yield. Their structures were confirmed using 1H NMR, IR and mass analysis. Cytotoxicity of these derivatives were evaluated by growth inhibition of HEp-2 cells in vitro. The preliminary bioassay indicated that these compounds showed moderate cytotoxicity.
