Abstract: Renewed interest on the research on the flavonoids is gaining more importance. Earlier literature on flavonoids indicated a significant anti-nociceptive action for flavones and mono-substituted flavones. However, they exhibited a ceiling effect. The present study was undertaken by new synthesizing six disubstituted flavones (DHFs) since poly substituted ones are expected to produce more potent effect. Their anti-nociceptive effect and the role of opioid involvement were studied using acetic acid induced abdominal constriction assay. All the six DHFs administered in elicited a dose related inhibition of abdominal constructions indicating the presence of the anti-nociceptive response. However, these substances also showed a similar ceiling effect. Like other flavonoid substances, they also utilized opioid pathways. It is suggested that these newly synthesized DHFs can be included along with other flavonoids while attempting clinical trial for analgesic use.
