Bedaquiline (TMC207), a typical diarylquinoline anti-tuberculosis drug, has been approved by FDA to specifically treat MDR-TB. Herein we describe design, synthesis, and in vitro biological evaluation against Mycobacterium tuberculosis of a series of triaryldimethylaminobutan-2-ol derivatives obtaining from the structural modification of TMC207. Compounds 23, 25, 28, 32, 39 and 43 provided superior anti-mycobacterial activity than positive control PC01 which shows the same configuration and contains TMC207. Compounds 16, 20, 29, 34, 37, 45 and 47 exhibited the similar activity to positive control PC01. Most importantly, the series of compounds showed excellent activity against XDR-Mtb. The result of acute toxicity suggested that this class of triaryldimethylaminobutan-2-ol derivatives should be graded as low. Further SAR analysis indicates that a large steric bulk of triaryl and 7-Br, 3-OCH3 on 1-naphthyl are critical.
