Arg-Gly-Asp (RGD) mimics were synthesized and their anti-platelet activity was evaluated. A concise method was developed for the synthesis of the target compounds from dehydroepiandrosterone and Wieland-Miescher and Hajos-Parrish ketones, which are suitable for readily available platform. Among the synthesized compounds, the perhydronaphthalene framework with a 3-(4-piperidinyl)propoxyl structure 3e possessed the highest anti-aggregative activity. The IC values of 3e were 0.91 mM (ADP initiation) and 0.54 mM (collagen initiation).
