Abstract

The monomer, 1-(2-carbomethoxyacryloyl)-5-fluorouracil(CMAFU) was synthesized from trans-${\beta}$-carbomethoxyacryl chloride and 2, 4-bis(trimethylsilyloxy)-5-fluoropyrimidine. A copolymer of CMAFU with methyl methacrylate (MMA)[poly(CMAFU-co-MMA)] was also prepared with 2, 2'-azobisisobutyronitrile in cyclohexanone at $60^{\circ}C$. Physiological genetic effects of 5-fluorouracil(5-FU), CMAFU and poly(CMAFU-co-MMA) on Drosophila melanogaster were investigated by the adult feeding method of Lewis and Bacher. It was found that a physiological genetic effect on the Drosophila melanogaster was considerably weaker for CMAFU and its copolymer than 5-FU.
