N'-Cyanoisonicotinamidine derivatives, linked to an arylpiperazine moiety, were prepared to identify highly selective and potent 5-HT1A ligands as potential pharmacological tools in studies of wide spread psychiatric disorders. The combination of structural elements (heterocyclic nucleus, alkyl chain and 4- substituted piperazine) known to be critical in order to have affinity on 5-HT1A receptor and the proper selection of substituents led to compounds with high specificity and affinity towards serotoninergic receptors. In binding studies, several molecules showed affinity in nanomolar and subnanomolar range at 5-HT1A and moderate to no affinity for other relevant receptors (5-HT2A, 5-HT2C, D1, D2, alfa1 and alfa2). N0-Cyano-N-(3-(4-(pyridin-2-yl)piperazin-1-yl)propyl)isonicotinamidine (4o) with Ki = 0.038 nM, was the most active and selective derivative for the 5-HT1A receptor with respect to other serotoninergic, dopaminergic and adrenergic receptors.
