Abstract: The series of twelve ring-substituted 4-hydroxy-1H-quinolin-2-one derivatives were prepared. The synthetic procedures of the compounds are presented. All the prepared quinoline derivatives were analyzed using RP-HPLC method for the lipophilicity measurement and their lipophilicity was determined. The prepared compounds were tested for their photosynthesis-inhibiting activity (the inhibition of photosynthetic electron transport in spinach chloroplasts (Spinacia oleracea L.). The relationships between the lipophilicity and the chemical structure of the studied compounds are discussed as well as the structure-activity relationships (SAR) between the chemical structure and the biological activities of the evaluated compounds.
Keywords: Quinolinone derivatives; Lipophilicity; OER inhibition; Spinach chloroplasts; Structure-activity relationships
