Chemical-functional space exploration of plant N-alkylamides

Abstract
N-Alkylamides are widely present in different plant families like Asteraceae, Piperaceae, Rutaceae and Solanaceae. These compounds have been shown to possess a broad functional spectrum: anti-inflammatory, immune-modulatory, diuretic, vasorelaxant, analgetic, anti-insecticidal, antiviral and aphrodisiac [1, 2]. Also different toxic endpoints, e.g. associated with the respiratory tract, eyes and skin, have been reported [3]. N-Alkylamides are thus a new group of drugs, related to peptides due to their amide structure (Fig.1). However, up till now, no structured overview of N-alkylamides is yet available. Therefore, we performed a chemical classification of 260 of these N-alkylamides. A database was constructed and each N-alkylamide was converted into molecular descriptors. Multi-variate analysis was performed for clustering and modelling [4, 5]. Later on, this chemical classification will be extended with bio-functional data. References: [1] J. Boonen, B. Baert, N.
