A series of variously methoxylated and methylated N-aryl-1-hydroxynaphthalene-2-carboxanilides was prepared and characterized as potential anti-invasive agents. As it is known that lipophilicity significantly influences the biological activity of compounds, the hydro-lipophilic properties of these mono-, di- and tri-substituted 1-hydroxynaphthalene-2-carboxanilides are investigated in the study. All the discussed hydroxynaphthalene derivatives were analysed using the reversed-phase high performance liquid chromatography method to measure lipophilicity. The procedure was performed under isocratic conditions with methanol as an organic modifier in the mobile phase using an end-capped non-polar C18 stationary reversed-phase column. In the present study, the correlations between the logarithm of the capacity factor k and log P/Clog P values calculated in various ways as well as the relationships between the lipophilicity and the chemical structure of the studied compounds are discussed.
