The preparation and full NMR ((1)H, (13)C and (31)P) characterisation of three [R(3)PAu(2mba)] complexes, Where R = Et, Ph and Cy, and 2mba is the anion derived from 2-mercaptobenzoic acid is reported. An interesting solvent dependence in the (1)H spectra is rationalised in terms of competing intra- and inter-molecular hydrogen bonding. An X-ray analysis of(More)
The synthesis and characterization of four di- and tri-n-butyltin cysteaminates and N,N-dimethylcysteaminates and three protonated / quaternized derivatives are reported. They all exhibit moderate or high in vitro cytotoxic activity. Six of seven compounds presented in this work are more active than cisplatin, etoposide and 5-fluorouracil, but less active(More)
An overview of the development of anti-tumor organotin derivatives in selected classes of compounds is presented and discussed. High to very high in vitro activity has been found, sometimes equaling that of doxorubicin. Solubility in water is an important issue, dominating the in vivo testing of compounds with promising in vitro properties. The cytotoxicity(More)
A series of triorganophosphinegold(1) dithiocarbamate (R(3)PAuS(2)CNR'(2)) and xanthate (R(3)PAuS(2)COR') complexes have been prepared and characterised spectroscopically. Based on crystallographic evidence, the molecules feature linear gold(1) geometries defined by sulphur and phosphorus donors. The complexes, along with a series of known anti-cancer(More)
Several organotin derivatives of 1,2- and 1,7-dicarba-closo-dodecaboranes were synthesized and characterized by (119)Sn Mössbauer, (1)H, (13)C and (119)Sn NMR spectroscopy. Their antitumour activities in vitro against cancerous cell lines of human origin are reported.
In this study, we are building a prototype of a machine-learning system using an inductive supervised approach to predict the logistical performance of a company. Focus lies on the learning phase, the handling of different types of data, the creation of new concepts in order to provide better measurable information. In this system, numeric financial data(More)
The results of cytotoxicity trials against a panel of seven human cell lines for a series of triorganophosphinegold(I) 3- and 4-mercaptobenzoates are reported. While the new compounds show moderate to high toxicity, their potencies are inferior to those reported previously for their isomeric 2- mercaptobenzoate derivatives. The results therefore suggest a(More)
The preparation and characterization of two triorganophosphinegold(I) complexes containing the anion derived from thiobenzoic acid are described. The cytotoxicity of these complexes has been investigated along with that of triphenylphosphinegold(I) mercaptopurinate, a known anti-tumor compound, against a variety of human cell lines. The complexes showed(More)
The in vivo toxicity profiles in mice and the antitumour activity in tumour bearing mice were screened for four di-n-butyltin and five triorganotin carboxylates, di-n-butyltin diterebate (5), bis(phenylacetate) (6), bis(deoxycholate) (7), bis(lithocholate) (8), tri-n-butyltin terebate (9), cinnamate (10), and triphenyltin terebate (11).At their maximum(More)
The synthesis and characterization of din -butyltin and dimethyltin salicyloxamate, respectively compounds 1 and 2, are reported. Compound 1 is more active than cisplatin, 5-fluorouracil and etoposide against seven tumoural cell lines of human origin, but less active than methotrexate and doxorubucin. Diorganotin derivatives of salicylic acid and its(More)
