The scientific work is devoted to the methodology of molecular design of new functionalized aminoanthraquinones, the results of which are useful for both theoretical organic chemistry and medicinal chemistry in order to find and develop new biologically active compounds for pharmacological purposes.

The scientific work presents new features of the reactivity of aminoanthraquinones and their functionalized derivatives in the conditions of
N-acylation, nucleophilic substitution and addition, thiocyanation, heterocyclization, dediazonation, C- and S-arylation, azo compounds, [3+2]-cycloaddition reactions and development convenient methods of obtaining them. This opens new opportunities for their use as convenient reaction substrates in organic synthesis and as "building" blocks for the construction of new compounds with specified properties.

Promising areas of experimental research based on the results of in silico screening programs with the aim to find new effective tools are defined. Experimental in vitro and in vivo testing of newly synthesized derivatives of 1(2)-amino-9,10-anthraquinones revealed promising compounds with selective antibacterial, antifungal, antioxidant, antiplatelet, antiviral, anticonvulsant, tyrosine protein kinase and antitumor activity, and with moderate toxicity (LD50> 1000 mg / kg) derivatives. The regularities of the influence of the "structure-activity" of the obtained compounds on the biological activity are established
