The antimalarial activities of ferrocenic compounds mimicking chloroquine and active upon chloroquine-resistant strains of Plasmodium falciparum were evaluated. Four 7-chloro-4-[[[2-[(N,N-substituted amino)methyl]ferrocenyl]methyl]amino]quinoline derivatives have been synthesized; one of them, 1a, showed high potent antimalarial activity in vivo on mice infected with Plasmodium berghei N. and Plasmodium yoelii NS. and was 22 times more potent against schizontocides than chloroquine in vitro against a drug-resistant strain of P. falciparum.
