Diaryl ether derivatives as anticancer agents – a review

This review article from Florence Bedos-Belval and co-workers at Université Paul Sabatier examines the possibility of diaryl ethers as a promising frame to design new anti-cancer agents.

Bedos-Belval et al. examine the diaryl ether scaffold found in natural products, related analogs and innovative molecules. Included in this examination is:

–    A look at encompassing synthesis,
–    Structure–activity relationships (SARs),
–    Studies on the biological action, namely in the context of anti-cancer activity.

Bedos-Belval et al. aim for this review is to show that the diaryl ether scaffold is an invaluable structure for the design of anticancer drugs.
