Abstract

In this study, 7 new isoxazole compounds (8-14) were synthesized from the cyclization of chalcone compounds (1-7) containing different functional groups with hydroxylamine hydrochloride in alkaline medium. Tyrosinase and antioxidant properties of 8-14 were investigated. IC50 values for the tyrosinase enzyme inhibition of compounds 8, 11, 12, and 13 were varied between 61.47 ± 3.46 and 188.52 ± 5.85, while compounds 9, 10 and 14 did not show any inhibition effect. The antioxidant properties of 8-14 were investigated by DPPH and CUPRAC methods. Compound 12 showed the best DPPH radical scavenging activity (SC50: 40.21 ± 2.71), while 12 and 13 had shown the greatest Cupric ion reducing effect as 1.233 ± 0.015 and 1.245 ± 0.019 mg TEAC/mg, respectively. As a result, the change of functional groups in the synthesized compounds caused a significant difference in the biological properties of 8-14.
