This manuscript describes methods appropriate for the parallel synthesis of libraries based on the tricyclic thioxanthen-9-one-10,10-dioxide scaffold. The novel compounds were synthesized from previously reported 3-chlorothioxanthen-9-one-10,10-dioxide and commercially available 3-carboxylic acid thioxanthen-9-one-10,10-dioxide. The library members were screened for activity in a fluorescence polarization assay for inhibitors of BRCT domains of breast cancer gene 1 and in cell-based secreted alkaline phosphatase reported replicon system for activity against hepatitis C virus.
