Abstract

The synthesis of a large group of benzenesulfonamides containing both a primary and secondary sulfonamide moiety is described. These compounds are powerful inhibitors of several isozymes of the enzyme carbonic anhydrase. Separate QSAR's are given for inhibition of three of these isozymes, using descriptors mainly derived from molecular orbital calculations by the semiempirical AM1 method. Activity was found to depend on electrostatic potential-based charges on the atoms of both sulfonamide groups, HOMO and LUMO energies, dipole moments, and lipophilicities. These results are compared with those from other studies.
