A series of novel 4-hydroxybenzaldehyde derivatives were synthesized and their inhibitory effects on the diphenolase activity of mushroom tyrosinase were investigated. Most of target compounds had more potent inhibitory activities than the parent compound 4-hydroxybenzaldehyde (IC(50)=1.22 mM). Interestingly, compound 3c...
