In this study, the effects of a porphyrazine derivative, [octakis (2-trimethylammoniumethyl thio) porphyrazinatocobalt] octaiodide (CoPzq), were explored on the developmental characteristics, sex ratio and egg fertility of Drosophila melanogaster. CoPzq was preferred in the study due to its probability to be used as a chemotherapeutic agent in medicine. As… (More)
Phthalocyanines (Pcs) containing a carboxylic acid functionality directly bound to the macrocycle have been synthesized, in one step and in good yields, from iodo-substituted Pc precursors. This methodology represents a convenient alternative to the commonly used method based on two consecutive oxidations of hydroxymethyl Pcs.
