This work describes the stabilisation of silver and copper nanoparticles in chemically modified chitosan colloidal solution. Chitosan-N-2-methylidene-hydroxy-pyridine-6-methylidene hydroxy thiocarbohydrazide (CSPTH) was used as a stabilising and reducing agent for silver and copper nanoparticles. The modified chitosan derivatives and the synthesised(More)
Chitosan-N-2-methylhydroxypyridine-6-methylcorboxylate (Ch-PDC) and chitosan-N-2-methylhydroxypyridine-6-methylhydroxy thiocarbohydrazide (Ch-PDC-Th) were synthesized for the first time using chitosan as precursor. Chitosan, Ch-PDC, Ch-PDC-Th were used in the synthesis of gold nanoparticles (AuNP) in aqueous medium. Chitosan and Ch-PDC-Th possess reducing(More)
Novel, non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drug (NSAID), acetaminophen conjugates 6a–l with amino acid linkers were synthesized utilizing benzotriazole chemistry. Biological data acquired for all the novel bis-conjugates showed (a) some bis-conjugates (6d, 6e, 6h, and 6k) exhibit more potent anti-inflammatory activity than their parent drugs, (b) the potent(More)
The thiocarbohydrazone Schiff-base ligand with a nitrogen and sulphur donor was synthesized through condensation of pyridine-2-carbaldehyde and thiocarbohydrazide. Schiff-base ligands have the ability to conjugate with metal salts. A series of metal complexes with a general formula [MCl2(H2L)]·nH2O (MNi, Co, Cu and Zn) were synthesized by forming complexes(More)
Myelin pathology is present in many neurological conditions such as multiple sclerosis (MS) and traumatic spinal cord injury (SCI). To facilitate development of novel therapies aimed at myelin repair, we set out to develop imaging agents that permit direct quantification of myelination in vivo. In this work, we designed and synthesized a series of(More)
Myelination is one of the fundamental processes in vertebrates. A major challenge is to quantitatively image myelin distribution in the central nervous system. For this reason, we designed and synthesized a series of fluorinated radioligands that can be radiolabeled as radiotracers for positron emission tomography (PET) imaging of myelin. These newly(More)
