A selection of potential bioactive molecules including alkoxy derivatives of (quinoline-4-ylthio)carboxylic acids using virtual screening has been carried out and their biological activity was determined. The studied substances proved to be low-toxic, biologically active compounds. It was established that 4-thio derivatives of quinoline exhibit pronounced antiradical, antioxidant effects and can act as preventive antioxidants, radio and cytoprotectors.
