In order to investigate the ability of metal complexes to act as reactivators of organophosphorus compounds (OP)-inhibited acetylcholinesterase (AChE), we have synthesized and crystallographically characterized three novel mononuclear Zn(II) complexes formulated as [ZnCl2{(4-py)CHNOH}2] (1), [ZnBr2{(4-py)CHNOH}2] (2) and [Zn(O2CMe)2{(4-py)CHNOH}2]∙2MeCN(More)
The first two mononuclear manganese citrate complexes, (NH4)4[MnII(C6H5O7)2] (1) and (NH4)5[MnIII(C6H4O7)2].2H2O (2) were synthesized in aqueous solutions near physiological pH values. They were isolated in their pure crystalline forms and characterized by elemental analyses and spectroscopic techniques, including UV/visible, electron paramagnetic(More)
Use of PhPyCNO (-)/X (-) "blends" (PhPyCNOH = phenyl 2-pyridyl ketoxime; X (-) = OH (-), alkanoato, ClO 4 (-)) in copper chemistry yielded trinuclear clusters that have been characterized as inverse-9-metallacrown-3 compounds and accommodate one or two guest ligands. The magnetic behavior showed a large antiferromagnetic interaction and a discrepancy(More)
The preparation, characterization and antitumour properties of the complex [Cu(O2CMe)2L2] (1), where L = 1-methyl-4,5-diphenylimidazole, are described. The crystal structure of 1 (triclinic, space group P1, a = 6.743(1), b = 8.006(1), c = 15.898(1) A, alpha = 102.87(1), beta = 101.10(1), gamma = 76.76(1) degree, Z = 1) has been determined (R = 0.0254, Rw =(More)
As part of our interest into the bioinorganic chemistry of gallium, gallium(III) complexes of the peptide ligand N-(2-(4-imidazolyl)ethyl)pyridine-2-carboxamide (pypepH2) resembling a fragment of the metal-binding domain of bleomycins (BLMs), have been isolated. Reaction of pypepH2 with (Et4N)[GaCl4] and Ga(acac)3 [acac- is the acetylacetonate(-1) ion](More)
Treatment of a methanolic solution of gallium(III) nitrate with lithium hydroxide in the presence of benzilic acid resulted in the decanuclear cluster [Ga(OMe)2{O2CC(OH)Ph2}]10 (1). The metal and the organic components have assembled to form a cyclic molecule that adopts the structure of a wheel. The 10 Ga(III) ions are approximately coplanar and are(More)
Copper(II) complexes with the non-steroidal antiinflammatory drug mefenamic acid in the presence of aqua or nitrogen donor heterocyclic ligands (2,2'-bipyridine, 1,10-phenanthroline, 2,2'-bipyridylamine or pyridine) have been synthesized and characterized. The crystal structures of [(2,2'-bipyridine)bis(mefenamato)copper(II)], 2,(More)
Citric acid represents a class of carboxylic acids present in biological fluids and playing key roles in biochemical processes in bacteria and humans. Its ability to promote diverse coordination chemistries in aqueous media, in the presence of metal ions known to act as trace elements in human metabolism, earmarks its involvement in a number of(More)
The neutral mononuclear zinc complexes with the quinolone antibacterial drug oxolinic acid in the absence or presence of a nitrogen donor heterocyclic ligand 2,2'-bipyridine or 1,10-phenanthroline have been synthesized and characterized. The experimental data suggest that oxolinic acid is on deprotonated mode acting as a bidentate ligand coordinated to the(More)
Complexes of Zn(II), Cd(II) and Pt(II) metal ions with the anti-inflammatory drugs, 1-methyl-5-(p-toluoyl)-1H-pyrrole-2-acetic acid (Tolmetin), alpha-methyl-4-(2-methylpropyl)benzeneacetic acid (Ibuprofen), 6-methoxy-alpha-methylnaphthalene-2-acetic acid (Naproxen) and 1-(4-chlorobenzoyl)-5-methoxy-2-methyl-1H-indole-3-acetic acid (indomethacin) have been(More)
