ABSTRACT:     A series of phenylbutanoid 4ae and dienone 5ae derivatives were synthesized and characterized by spectroscopic methods. Cytotoxic and anti-inflammatory activities of the synthesized derivatives were investigated at a potentially non-toxic concentration of 15.63 µM (as indicated by cell viability of more than 70%) by measuring the nitric oxide content produced by lipopolysaccharide-stimulated RAW264.7 macrophage cells. Compounds 4b, 4e, 5a, 5b, and 5e at 15.63 µM showed a higher anti-inflammatory activity than the diclofenac drug without affecting cell viability of RAW264.7 macrophage cells. In particular, 5a and 5e showed a nitric oxide inhibition of more than 80%.
