The synthesis and characterization of 3-formylchromone (1) and its derivatives 2-24 and evaluation of their potential antiinflammatory activities is reported here. These compounds were characterized by (1)H NMR, EI MS, IR, and UV spectroscopic techniques and elemental analysis. The synthesized compounds were evaluated by using various in vitro and in vivo assay models for antiinflammatory activity and their effects were compared with known standard drug such as aspirin and indomethacin. Among all tested compounds, 1, 2, 5, 6, 9, 14, 16-19, 21-23, showed promising antiinflammatory activities. The results and SAR has been discussed in this report.
