Using rational structural optimization, we recently prepared a series of novel halophenols with benzophenone, benzylbenzene, or furan-2-yl(phenyl)methanone skeletons, and we discovered three interesting compounds, namely halophenols 1 (HP1), 2 (HP2), and 3 (HP3) (Figure 1), with significant cytoprotective activities against [H.sub.2][O.sub.2]-induced injury in human umbilical vein endothelial cells (HUVECs) [8, 9].
In our previous research, a series of benzophenone, benzylbenzene, and furan-2-yl(phenyl)methanone halophenols were prepared [8, 9].
