Mixed-ligand Cu(II)-vanillin Schiff base complexes; effect of coligands on their DNA binding, DNA cleavage, SOD mimetic and anticancer activity.
SOD mimics with varying coligand are momentous in developing potential chemotherapeutic drugs and the pBR322 plasmid strand break offered by 2 + O₂·⁻ system reveals oxidative cleavage mechanism. 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
Synthesis and structural characterization of adducts of silver(I) perchlorate with PR3 (R = Ph, cy, o-tolyl) and oligodentate aromatic bases derivative of 2,2′-bipyridyl, L, AgClO4:PR3:L (1:1:1)
Abstract Ten novel adducts of the form AgClO4:PR3:L (1:1:1) (R = Ph, cy, o-tolyl; L = 2,2′-bipyridyl (‘bpy’), 2,2′-biquinoline (‘bq’), bis(2-pyridyl)amine (‘dpa’), bis(2-picolyl)amine (‘dpca’)) haveExpand
Synthesis and structural characterization of adducts of silver(I) carboxylate salts AgX (X = CF3COO, CH3COO) with ER3 (E = P, As; R = Ph, cy, o-tolyl) and oligodentate aromatic bases derivative of
Twenty-one adducts of the form AgX:ER 3 :L (1:1:1) (X = CF 3 COO (‘tfa’), CH 3 COO (‘ac’), E = P, As; R = Ph, cy, o -tolyl; L = 2,2′-bipyridyl (‘bpy’)-based ligand) have been synthesized andExpand
A Teaching Sequence for Learning the Concept of Chemical Equilibrium in Secondary School Education
A novel didactic sequence is proposed for the teaching of chemical equilibrium. This teaching sequence takes into account the historical and epistemological evolution of the concept, the alternativeExpand

Chemical and biotechnological developments in organotin cancer chemotherapy
This review provides a substantial knowledge on the action mode of organotins in cancer chemotherapy. The coordinating ability of organotin compounds towards DNA and cancer cells is discussed. MostExpand
Antitumor activity of the mixed phosphine gold species chlorotriphenylphosphine-1,3-bis(diphenylphosphino)propanegold(I).
The title compound shows in vitro antitumor activity in the two initial National Cancer Institute protocols against human tumors, with the exception of leukemia, which was unexpected. Expand
Application of Metal‐organic Frameworks
The burgeoning field of metal − organic frameworks or porous coordination polymers has received increasing interest in recent years. In the last decade these microporous materials have found severalExpand
