A novel series of 2-substituted-4,5-dihydro-4-oxo-4H-imidazo[1,2-a]indeno[1,2-e]pyrazine derivatives was synthesised. One of them, 4e-a highly water soluble compound exhibited a nanomolar affinity and demonstrated competitive antagonist properties at the ionotropic AMPA receptors. This compound also displayed potent anticonvulsant properties against electrically or sound-induced convulsions in mice after systemic administration, thus suggesting adequate brain penetration.
