Abstract: 7-Hydroxy-4-methylchromene-2-one 1 when reacted respectively with 2-bromo-1-chloroethane and 3-bromo-1-chloropropane in acetonitrile and in the presence of anhydrous K2CO3 yields 7-alkoxy-4-methylchromene-2-ones 2a,b. Compounds 2a,b when refluxed with various arylpiperazines in toluene and in the presence of triethylamine yield the title compounds, 7-[(4-substituted phenyl-piperazin-1-yl)-alkoxyl]-4-methylchromen-2-ones 3a-j.Their atypical antipsychotic activity have been evaluated by their ability to inhibit apomorphine induced climbing behavior (D2 antagonism) and to inhibit the 5–HTP induced head twitches in albino mice (5-HT2A antagonism) alongwith catalepsy studies. All the compounds inhibit apomorphine induced climbing behavior and 5-HTP induced head twitches. The SAR studies reveal that methyl group in the phenyl ring of piperazine and the chain length (n=3) gives more dopaminergic and serotonergic antagonistic activity, while dichlorophenyl piperazines have less dopaminergic and serotonergic antagonistic activity. 3f and 3g have been found to have significant atypical behaviour.
