The first examples of platinum(II) complexes of 3-(aminomethyl)naphthoquinone Mannich bases have been synthesised and their crystal structures are described. Neutral and charged complexes have been obtained, fully characterised and their cytotoxic activities have also been investigated. 3-[(R(1)-amino)(pyridin-2-yl)methyl]-2-hydroxy-1,4-naphthoquinones(More)
Uma série de novas Bases de Mannich (HL1-HL13) derivadas da 2-hidroxi-1,4-naftoquinona (lausona), benzaldeídos substituídos [C 6 H 2 RRRC(O)H] e várias aminas primárias (NH 2 R, R = n-butil, benzil, alil, 2-furfuril) e seus complexos de Cu, [Cu(L1) 2 ]-[Cu(L13) 2 ], foram sintetizados e caracterizados por métodos analíticos e espectroscópicos. As estruturas(More)
The structure of the Ts1 toxin from the Brazilian scorpion Tityus serrulatus was investigated at atomic resolution using X-ray crystallography. Several positively charged niches exist on the Ts1 molecular surface, two of which were found to coordinate phosphate ions present in the crystallization solution. One phosphate ion is bound to the conserved basic(More)
A process enabling both the controlled growth and positioning of metal nanoparticles (NPs) is reported. Using scanning probe microscopy (SPM) techniques, metal NPs are directly grown in the region of interest via the reduction of metallic ions in a polymer matrix induced by a properly biased SPM tip. The metallic nature of these NPs is established via X-ray(More)
The reaction of 2,2-dimethoxy-N-methylethyllamine or 2-methyl-1,3-dioxolane with CS(2) in alkaline media produced two novel dithiocarbamate salts. Subsequent reactions with organotin halides yielded six new complexes: [SnMe(2){S(2)CNR(R(1))(2)}(2)] (1), [Sn(n-Bu)(2){S(2)CNR(R(1))(2)}(2)] (2), [SnPh(2){S(2)CNR(R(1))(2)}(2)] (3),(More)
A new compound of formula (Bu4N)2[Mn2{Cu(opba)}2ox] (1) [Bu4N(+) = tetra-n-butylammonium cation, H4opba = 1,2-phenylenebis(oxamic acid), and H2ox = oxalic acid] has been synthesized and magneto-structurally investigated. The reaction of manganese(II) acetate, [Cu(opba)](2-), and ox(2-) in dimethyl sulfoxide yielded single crystals of 1. The structure of 1(More)
Bi-stable molecular systems presenting valence tautomerism are associated with the development of new functional materials, which can be used for applications in organic electric conductors, optoelectronic and molecular magnetic devices. The properties of these materials can be adjusted with slight chemical changes and can be induced by external stimuli.(More)
Zinc(II) and copper(II) complexes of a tridentate Mannich base L1 derived from 2-hydroxy-1,4-naphthoquinone, pyridinecarboxyaldehyde and 2-aminomethylpyridine, [ZnL1Cl(2)]·H(2)O 1 and [CuL1Cl(2)]·2H(2)O 2, have been synthesized and fully characterized. The structure of complex 1 has been elucidated by a single crystal X-ray diffraction study: the zinc atom(More)
The thermotropic phase diagram of 1:1 co-crystals of hexamethylenetetramine and pimelic acid (heptanedioic acid) is investigated. Three crystalline phases are identified at ambient pressure. Phase I is disordered, as revealed by diffuse rods in its diffraction pattern. When the temperature is lowered the diffuse streaks disappear in Phase II, but(More)
A unique bistable copper-metallacyclic complex is used as an elegant molecular switch for the reversible formation of emulsions by simple pH variation. This switch may have several exciting applications in biphasic processes such as catalysis and separation science technologies.
