A series of novel chalcones of 3-Benzylidene-2-chlorocyclohex-1-enecarbaldehyde were synthesized by reacting benzylidene derivative of chloro aldehyde with different aromatic and heterocyclic ketones. All the synthesized compounds were characterized by 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR, IR and Mass spectra. The synthesized compounds were evaluated for their in vitro cytotoxicity. In particular, the compounds of the series 5 and fluorinated compounds of 5-9 exhibited superior cytotoxic property.
