A series of new phenothiazine derivatives of sulfonamide dyes was designed, synthesized & evaluated for their potent anti-cancer activities. The compounds were designed on the basis of molecular docking studies. Firstly they were docked with three different anticancer target enzymes viz. topoisomerase-II, aromatase and CDK2 and on the basis of dock score the designed compounds were synthesized. All synthesized compounds were bio-evaluated for their in-vitro anti-cancer action which displayed adequate results in agreement with the outcome of docking study.
