Electron-transfer activated metal-based anticancer drugs
Abstract Platinum(II)-based anticancer drugs play an essential role in the clinic today, and a number of coordination compounds with other metals are in current development as promising antitumorExpand
Polynuclear diorganotin(IV) complexes with arylhydroxamates: Syntheses, structures and in vitro cytotoxic activities.
The polymeric diorganotin/hydroxamato complexes a containing the long carbon chain butyl ligands are the most active ones, and the dependence of the antitumor activity of the complexes on various factors, namely the nuclearity, the organic ligand, the type, position and number of the X ring substituents is also discussed.

Biological characterization of the antiproliferative potential of Co(II) and Sn(IV) coordination compounds in human cancer cell lines: a comparative proteomic approach
A high in vitro antiproliferative potential against cancer cell lines and a moderate selectivity promoted by the Sn(IV) compound is revealed. Expand
Syntheses, structures, and antimicrobial activity of new remarkably light-stable and water-soluble tris(pyrazolyl)methanesulfonate silver(I) derivatives of N-methyl-1,3,5-triaza-7-phosphaadamantane
The two new silver complexes exhibit significant antibacterial and antifungal activities screened in vitro against the standard strains of Staphylococcus aureus, Enterococcus faecalis, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli, and Candida albicans. Expand
Poly(vinyl) chloride membrane copper-selective electrode based on 1-phenyl-2-(2-hydroxyphenylhydrazo)butane-1,3-dione.
1-Phenyl-2-(2-hydroxyphenylhydrazo)butane-1,3-dione (H(2)L) was used as an effective ionophore for copper-selective poly(vinyl) chloride (PVC) membrane electrodes and as an indicator electrode for potentiometric titration of copper ions with EDTA. Expand
Cobalt complexes bearing scorpionate ligands: synthesis, characterization, cytotoxicity and DNA cleavage.
A number of novel, water-stable redox-active cobalt complexes of the C-functionalized tripodal ligands tris(pyrazolyl)methane XC(pz)(3) (X = HOCH(2), CH(2)OCH(2)Py or CH(2)OSO(2)Me) are reportedExpand
Oxovanadium complexes in catalytic oxidations
Abstract This contribution is an overview on recent advances (since 2000) on the application of oxovanadium complexes as catalysts or mediators for oxidations by molecular oxygen, peroxidativeExpand
Non-covalent interactions in the synthesis of coordination compounds: Recent advances
Abstract This review describes how non-covalent interactions, such as hydrogen (inter- and intramolecular, resonance- and charge-assisted hydrogen bonding), halogen, chalcogen and pnicogen bonds,Expand
Aminocarbene complexes derived from nucleophilic addition to isocyanide ligands
Abstract Isocyanides ligating medium to high-valent electron-poor metal centers can undergo activation toward α-nucleophilic addition to afford a variety of aminocarbene complexes with eitherExpand
