More than 500 of all existing drugs are phenyl-containing organic molecules. During the recent years, however, pharmaceutical companies struggle to deliver novel drugs to the market, because of the lack of innovative practical approaches towards novel drug-like “chemical space.” In this project, we will address this issue by developing novel saturated bioisosteres for ortho- and meta-substituted benzenes, and incorporate them into several known drugs (intiinflamatory Aceclofenac, antiviral Tipranavir, antihypertensive Oxprenolol, etc) to provide novel patent-free analogues with improved physico-chemical and biological properties.
