We describe novel acetohydroxamic acid derivatives with potent activity against cultured bloodstream-form Trypanosoma brucei and selectivity indices of >1000. These analogues were derived from conformationally constrained, lipophilic, spiro carbocyclic 2,6-diketopiperazine (2,6-DKP) scaffolds by attaching acetohydroxamic acid moieties to the imidic nitrogen. Optimal activity was achieved by placing benzyl groups adjacent to the basic nitrogen of the 2,6-DKP core. S-Enantiomer 7d was the most active derivative against T. brucei (IC(50) = 6.8 nM) and T. cruzi (IC(50) = 0.21 μM).
