A novel series of aryl thiazole derivatives have been designed, synthesized and evaluated in preventing keratinocyte cell (HaCaT) from UVB exposure induced cellar damage. The structure-activity relationship (SAR) was discussed from chemical modification of amide, aryl-thiazole rings and the linker. Preliminary data suggested that four compounds (5a, 11a, 13c and 17) effectively protected Keratinocytes cell from UVB induced cell death compare with positive control polydatin. More importantly, compound 5a significantly protected the dorsal skin of BALB/c-nu mice against UVB-induced decrustation in vivo. The in vitro and in vivo data for these aryl thiazole derivatives suggest further studies for their potential use as photo-protection agents as well as sunscreen candidates.
