A new series of sulfonamides was synthesized by the reaction of the boroxazolidone complex of l-lysine with isothiocyanates incorporating sulfamoyl moieties and diverse organic scaffolds. The obtained thioureas have been investigated as inhibitors of four physiologically relevant human carbonic anhydrase (hCA, EC isoforms, hCA I, II, IX and XII. Inhibition between the low nanomolar to the micromolar range has been observed against them, with several low nanomolar and tumor-CA selective inhibitors detected. These boron-containing compounds might be useful for the management of hypoxic tumors overexpressing hCA IX/XII by means of boron neutron capture therapy, a technique not investigated so far with inhibitors of this enzyme.
