We synthesized selenoflavones and evaluated their physicochemical properties and antioxidant effects. When oxygen was substituted with selenium, the compounds exhibited improved polarity and lipophilicity, implying that this change could lead to better BBB penetration. Selenoflavones revealed more potent antioxidant activity in our in-vitro assay. This suggests that selenoflavones would be more druggable than flavones and have a better potential as a neuroprotective agent.
