2-quinolone derivatives find applications as antimicrobial, anti-viral and anticancer agents. 3-Aryl and N-methyl derivatives of 2-quinolone have been reported as most potent anti-cancer agents. Present study involves synthesis, characterization of novel4-(aminomethyl)quinolin-2(1H)-onederivatives, 7a-e, devoid of 3-aryl and N-methyl substitutions and their application as anti-cancer agents. MTT assay of the synthesized new chemical entities against A549 cell line was carried out and compound 7e was found to be the most potent anti-cancer agent in the series.
