Abstract: A series of new imidazole carboxylic esters (carbamates) and N-acylimidazole derivatives of betulin and betulinic acid (14-29) have been synthesized. The new compounds were screened for in vitro cytotoxicity activity against human cancer cell lines HepG2, Jurkat and HeLa. A number of compounds have shown IC50 values lower than 2 [mu]M against the cancer cell lines tested and the vast majority has shown a better cytotoxicity profile than betulinic acid, including the betulin derivatives. N-Acylimidazole derivatives 26 and 27 (IC50 0.8 and 1.7 [mu]M in HepG2 cells) and the C-3 carbamate derivative 16 (IC50 2.0 [mu]M in HepG2 cells) were the most promising compounds. Based on the observed cytotoxicity, structure-activity relationships have been established
