We describe new methodology for the synthesis of symmetric bis-benzimidazole carrying 2-aryl moieties, including 2-[4-3'-aminopropoxy)phenyl] and 2-[4-(3'-aminopropanamido)pheny] substituents, together with the synthesis of novel hybrid molecules comprising bis-benzimidazoles in ester and amide combination with the N-mustard chlorambucil. The in vitro activities of these compounds against five cancer cell lines are also provided.
