The continued SAR investigation of tryptamine-based human β3-adrenergic receptor (AR) agonists is reported. Prior efforts resulted in the identification of 2 as a potent β3-AR agonist. Further modification of the left side arylsulfonamide portion in 2 provided compounds with good cell permeability, which have potent agonistic activity for β3-AR. Cinnamylamine analog 16i exhibited an excellent agonistic profile in vitro and good oral bioavailability in rats. © 2004 Elsevier Ltd. All rights reserved.
