A series of thio- and selenopyrans having two fused indole units, structurally related to indolocarbazoles, have been prepared and evaluated for aryl hydrocarbon receptor (AhR) affinity, leading to the identification of several new significant AhR ligands. In particular, the parent thiopyrano[2,3-b:6,5-b′]diindole and its derivative having a methyl group in the central ring, as well as the two corresponding selenopyrans, displayed the highest potencies of the compounds tested.
