Based on previous work on both perylene and coronene derivatives as G-quadruplex binders, a novel chimeric compound was designed: N,N'-bis[2-(1-piperidino)-ethyl]-1-(1-piperidinyl)-6-[2-(1-piperidino)-ethyl]-benzo[ghi]perylene-3,4:9,10-tetracarboxylic diimide (EMICORON), having one piperidinyl group bound to the perylene bay area (positions 1, 12 and 6, 7(More)
A series of bay-substituted perylene derivatives is reported as a new class of G-quadruplex ligands. The synthesized compounds have differing N-cyclic substituents on the bay area and differing side chains on the perylene major axis. ESI-MS and FRET measurements highlighted the strongest quadruplex binders in this series and those showing the highest(More)
Cyclopropanation reaction is an important tool for obtaining interesting compounds and can be catalyzed by metalloporphyrins with high syn/anti ratio. The catalyst cannot be recycled and is usually lost during chromatographic separation from the two isomeric products. In this paper a meso-tetraphenylporphyrin rhodium(III) chloride was bound to a Merrifield(More)
A "frozen" electron donor-acceptor array that bears porphyrin and fullerene units covalently linked through the ortho position of a phenyl ring and the nitrogen of a pyrrolidine ring, respectively, is reported. Electrochemical and photophysical features suggest that the chosen linkage supports both through-space and through-bond interactions. In particular,(More)
