A series of thirty-three thymol, p-cymene-3-carboxylic acid, and 3-amino-p-cymene derivatives was synthesized and tested on TRPA1, TRPM8, and TRPV3 channels. Most of them acted as strong modulators of TRPA1, TRPM8, and TRPV3 channels with EC(50) and/or IC(50) values distinctly lower than those of thymol and related monoterpenoids. Some of the compounds examined, that is, 3c, 4e, f, 6b, and 8b exhibited an appreciable subtype-selectivity.
