In the present investigation, simple and straightforward methodology for the preparation of novel thiazolidinone, thiazole, pyridinone, chromene, pyrazole, benzimidazo[1,2-a]pyrimidine and thiazolo[3,2-a]pyrimidine derivatives bearing sulfonate ester moiety through the reaction of 4-formylphenyl benzenesulfonate (1) with some nitrogen nucleophiles such as hydrazine hydrate, thiosemicarbazide and 2-cyanoacetohydrazide is described. The antitumor activities were evaluated according to the protocol of the National Cancer Institute (NCI) in vitro disease-oriented human cells screening panel assay against two human tumor cell lines namely; breast cancer MCF-7 and prostate cancer PC3. The results revealed that compounds (4), (7), (9), (13) and (16) exhibited promising antitumor activity in the two cell lines assay compared with 5-fluorouracil as a reference drug.
