Abstract Several N-substituted-11-hydroxy-10-hydroxymethyl- and 11-hydroxy-10-methylaporphines were synthesized and their binding affinities at dopamine D(1) and D(2) receptors and serotonin 5-HT(1A) and 5-HT(2A) receptors in rat forebrain tissue were evaluated. Tested compounds displayed moderate to high affinity to 5-HT(1A) receptors but low affinity to D(1) and D(2) receptors. The most potent novel 5-HT(1A) agent was R-(-)-N-methyl-10-hydroxymethyl-11-hydroxyaporphine.
