New series of benzothiazole-piperazine derivatives are synthesized and their cytotoxic activities are evaluated on colorectal (HCT-116), breast (MCF-7) and hepatocellular (HUH-7) cancer cell lines by sulforhodamine B assay. Results are compared with 5-fluorouracil as reference compound.

Dihalo substituted compounds BTP-2 (N-(6-ethoxybenzothiazole-2-yl)-2-[4-(2,6-dichlorobenzyl)piperazinyl]acetamide) (HCT-116:GI50 =0.4 µM; HUH-7: GI50 =0.7 µM; MCF-7: GI50 =2.6 µM) and BTP-7 (N-(6-ethoxybenzothiazole-2-yl)-2-[4-(4-bromo-2-fluorobenzyl)piperazinyl]acetamide)(HCT-116:GI50 =0.9 µM; HUH-7: GI50 =0.3 µM; MCF-7: GI50 =12.2 µM) are found to have highest cytotoxic activities in all studied cancer cell lines.
