Quantitative relationships between structure of the selected 4-chloro-2-mercapto-5-methylbenzensulfonamide derivatives and their potential anticancer activity were studied. Molecular descriptors of studied compounds were obtained with the support of Dragon software after geometry optimization using HyperChem package. Theoretically calculated parameters were used to study the relationships between structure and activity. Principal component analysis performed firstly on activity data and secondly on different kinds of molecular parameters sets revealed similar results, which allowed to divide studied set of compounds into three distinct clusters diversifying them in both structure and activity.
