A new series of 1,4-disubstituted-1,2,3-triazole derivatives were synthesized through the copper-catalyzed azide-alkyne 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition (Click chemistry) and their inhibitory activities were evaluated against different human glioblastoma (GBM) cell lines, including highly drug-resistant human cell lines GBM02, GBM95. The most effective compounds were 9d, containing the methylenoxy moiety linked to triazole and the tosyl-hydrazone group, and the symmetrical bis-triazole 10a, also containing methylenoxy moiety linked to triazole. Single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis was employed for structural elucidation of compound 9dIn silico analyses of physicochemical, pharmacokinetic, and toxicological properties suggest that compounds 8a, 8b, 8c, 9d, and 10a are potential candidates for central nervous system-acting drugs.
