Various 2,4,6-trisubstituted pyridine derivatives have been synthesized using modified Kröhnke reaction conditions. These compounds were evaluated for their Topo I and II inhibitory activity and antitumor cytotoxicity against several human cancer cell lines and found that heterocyclic moieties are important at 2- and 4-positions on the central pyridine ring system to display these activities. There was no direct correlation between antitumor cytotoxicity and topo­isomerase inhibitory activity.
