Terpenoids are unique scaffold that might be used for further chemical modification aimed at synthesizing the compounds simultaneously affecting the central and peripheral nervous systems. Bearing this idea in mind, a series of terpenoid derivatives were designed and synthesized as potential analgesic and anticonvulsant agents that may additionally enhance the skin permeability. The structure of terpenoid derivatives was characterized by 13C-NMR, 1H-NMR, FTIR-ATR, Ramanspectroscopy and ESI-mass spectrometry. All compounds have been synthesized and purified up to 99% purity confirmed by high-performance liquid chromatography (HPLC); thermal behavior of terpenoid derivatives was performed by differential scanning calorimetry (DSC).
