A library of anilinoanthraquinone derivatives was synthesized by parallel Ullmann coupling reaction of bromaminic acid with aniline derivatives in solution using a compact parallel synthesizer. The products were purified by HPLC and evaluated as antagonists at mouse and human P2Y2 receptors. 4-Phenylamino-substituted 1-amino-2-sulfoanthraquinones, for example, 1-amino-4-(2-methoxyphenyl)-2-sulfoanthraquinone (PSB-716), were potent P2Y2 antagonists with IC50 values in the low micromolar range.
