Compounds containing the naphthoate moiety of Neocarzinostatin chromophore or 2-hydroxynaphthoate have been synthesized and evaluated for cytotoxic activity against a leukemia cell line and a small panel of human-tumor cell lines. Those compounds containing a cyclopentenone moiety were active, with the carbonyl group being essential for biological activity.
