New analogues of nifedipine, in which the ortho nitrophenyl group of position 4 is replaced by 1-methyl-4-nitro-5-imidazolyl or 1-methyl-5-imidazolyl with a nitrooxy group at the 3-ester position were synthesized, and the antihypertensive activity of the compounds was examined by the tail-cuff method and compared with TNG and nifedipine. Compounds 11g, 11i-11m, 110, 11r, and 11v showed activity similar to nifedipine and TNG.
