A series of new raft-unsaturated conjugated ketones containing ferrocenyl pyrazole unit were synthesized and fully characterized by IR and NMR spectroscopy. Electrochemical characterization of subject compounds was performed by means of cyclic voltametry. The in vitro cytotoxic activity of all the synthesized compounds was studied against cervix adenocarcinoma HeLa, melanoma Fem-x and myelogenous leukemia K562 cell lines by the MIT method. Derivative II containing 3-pyridyl moiety exhibited a better cytotoxic activity in the cell growth inhibition of 1(562 cell lines in comparison with cisplatin as a reference compound.
