Bruceantin (1), a classical quassinoid with the highest reported antimalarial activity among the quassinoids examined thus far, was selected as a natural product lead for the design of a series of A/B-ring analogs. A viable strategy for the synthesis of the series was developed. The functionalized A-ring and the C-15 ester moiety in bruceantin are incorporated in all designed compounds. The preliminary bioassay results will be discussed in detail.

Keywords: bruceantin, partial analogs, bioassay, structure activity relationships, antileukemic and antimalarial activities
