This paper describes our recent efforts to synthesize novel compound scaffolds integrating 2-quinoxalinol with privileged structures of 1,3-dihydro-benzoimidazol-2-one, 1,3-dihydro-benzoimidazole-2-thione, 3-hydroxy-1H-quinoxalin-2-one, 2H-benzo[1,4]oxazin-3-ol, 2H-benzo[1,4]thiazin-3-ol, and 1,3,4,5-tetrahydro-benzo[1,4]diazepin-2-one, respectively. Eight novel benzofused tricycles and their substituent diversity points were developed. These include pyrazino[2,3-g]quinoxaline-2,8-diol (I), 3-hydroxy-6,8,9,10-tetrahydro-1,4,6,10-tetraaza-cyclohepta[b]naphthalen-7-one (II), 6-hydroxy-4H-1-oxa-4,5,8-triaza-anthracen-3-one (III), 6-hydroxy-4H-1-thia-4,5,8-triaza-anthracen-3-one (IV), 6-hydroxy-1,1-dioxo-1,4-dihydro-2H-1lambda(6)-thia-4,5,8-triaza-anthracen-3-one (V), 6-hydroxy-1,3-dihydro-imidazo[4,5-g]quinoxalin-2-one (VI), 6-hydroxy-1,3-dihydro-imidazo[4,5-g]quinoxaline-2-thione (VII), and 7-hydroxy-1,4-dihydro-pyrazino[2,3-g]quinoxaline-2,3-dione (VIII). This strategy of integrating two benzofused privileged structures into one molecule may provide a greater chance for the discovery of novel lead compounds.
