Salts of the antiviral drug Arbidol (umifenovir) with pharmaceutically relevant benzoate and salicylate anions were obtained, and their crystal structures were described. For Arbidol salicylate, an unstable solvate with acetonitrile was also found and characterized. Analysis of the conformational preferences of the Arbidol molecule in the crystal structures(More)
The syntheses of novel Pd complexes with germylene and stannylene ligands are reported. [MeN(CH2CH2NC6F5)2Sn]4Pd (2) and [MeN(CH2CPh2O)(CH2CH2O)Ge]4Pd (8) were obtained by different methods including ligand substitution in (Ph3P)4Pd or by the reaction of the free corresponding germylene or stannylene with (Ph3P)2PdCl2 or Pd(OAc)2. Crystal structures of(More)
Reaction of complex [CpRu(pyr)3][PF6] (3) with the NHC carbene IPr (IPr = 1,3-bis(2,6-diisopropylphenyl)imidazol-2-ylidene) results in the NHC complex [Cp(IPr)Ru(pyr)2][PF6] (4), which was studied by NMR specroscopy and X-ray diffraction analysis. Reaction of [Cp(IPr)Ru(pyr)2][PF6] (4) with LiAlH4 leads to the trihydride Cp(IPr)RuH3 (5) characterised by(More)
New lariat ethers, N-(o-fluorophenyl)aza-15-crown-5 (F-A15C5) and N,N'-bis(o-fluorophenyl)diaza-18-crown-6 (F(2)-A(2)18C6), were prepared by the N-arylation of the corresponding azacrown ethers. The interaction of the ligands with metal cations was studied in solution by (1)H and (19)F NMR (in acetone-d(6)) and UV spectroscopy (MeOH) confirming the(More)
To produce a novel class of structurally ordered poly-β-prolines, an emergent method for synthesizing chiral β-peptide molecular frameworks was developed based on 1,3-dipolar cycloaddition chemistry of azomethine ylides. Functionalized short β-peptides with up to six monomeric residues were efficiently synthesized in homochiral forms using a cycloadditive(More)
This paper deals with the preparation and structural investigation of asymmetric bis(silyl) niobocene hydrides, Cp2Nb(SiHMe2)(H)(SiXMe2) (2; X = F (a), Cl (b), Br (c), I (d)) and Cp2Nb(SiXMe2)(H)(SiYMe2) (X,Y= F-I; X not equal Y). Complexes 2a-d were prepared by selective electrophilic activation of the Si-H bond in Cp2Nb(SiHMe2)2(H). The(More)
A general and efficient approach toward new zirconium and hafnium complexes based on 2-aryl-8-arylaminoquinoline ligands was developed. These precursors, when activated with MAO/borate cocatalyst and supported on silica, result in active olefin polymerization catalysts. The ethylene copolymers produced under industrially relevant conditions show very high(More)
