A series of N-alkyl- and N,N-dialkyl-4-(alpha-((2S,5R)-4-allyl-2,5-dimethyl-1-piperazinyl)benzyl)benzamides were synthesized and evaluated for binding affinities at mu, delta, and kappa opioid receptor subtypes. Several compounds (2e,f,h,i,m) strongly bound to the delta receptor with IC-50 values in the nanomolar range.
