An efficient, environmentally benign, and inexpensive procedure has been developed for the synthesis of fluorinated 2-alkylthio-4-aminoquinazolines by microwave irradiation using basic alumina as a solid-support agent as well as a solid base. Notably, this protocol features improved energy efficiency, broad isothiourea substrate scope, easily available starting materials, and high atom efficiency and applicability toward gram-scale synthesis. Additionally, the target compounds were evaluated for the cytotoxic effect against human colon adenocarcinoma (HCT116 and HT29), human gastric cancer (SGC-7901), human lung adenocarcinoma (A549), and human hepatocyte carcinoma (HepG2) cells, and it was found that these compounds have excellent antitumor activities. Among them, compound 3e was found to be one of the most potent derivatives with IC50 values lower than 9.44 μM against five human tumor cell lines, making it more active than cisplatin (DDP). Furthermore, for the first time, the fluorinated 2-alkylthio-substituted 4-aminoquinazolines were identified as phosphatase CDC25B inhibitors.
