To develop non-prodrugs of taxoids possessing satisfactory stability in vivo, high water solubility and potent antitumor activity, we prepared several 10-C-sec-aminoalkylated docetaxel analogs and evaluated their cytotoxicity against mouse leukemia and human tumor cell lines. These analogs were synthesized from a 10-deacetoxy-10-C-formylethyl baccatin derivative. Among these analogs, the 10-C-morpholinoethyl and 10-C-morpholinomethyl analogs exhibited cytotoxicity comparable or superior to that of docetaxel.
