In an attempt to develop a new class of selective antitumor agents, a novel series of benzothiazole derivatives was prepared via the condensation of 5-fluoro-6-(4-methylpiperazin-1-yl)benzo[d]thiazol-2-amine with aromatic aldehydes. The preliminary bioassay reveals that (4-fluorobenzylidene)-[5-fluoro-6-(4-methylpiperazin-1-yl)-benzothiazol-2-yl]-amine show specific anticancer cytotoxicity.
