We report the synthesis of 3-phenethylazetidine derivatives 2 and their biological activities against 5-HT, NE and DA transporters as well as microsomal stability, CYP inhibition, and hERG inhibition profiles. Compound 2at showed most potent triple reuptake inhibitor with good selectivity as a candidate for depression.
