Cytotoxic studies of substituted titanocene and ansa-titanocene anticancer drugs.
A variety of substituted titanocene and ansa-titanocene complexes have been synthesized and characterized using traditional methods and Structural studies based on DFT calculations of the most active complexes 8, 9 and 12 and the X-ray crystal structure of 13 are reported. Expand
Study of the cytotoxic activity of alkenyl-substituted ansa-titanocene complexes
Abstract The cytotoxic activity on tumour cell lines, human adenocarcinoma HeLa, human myelogenous leukemia K562, human malignant melanoma Fem-x and normal immunocompetent cells, was tested for fourExpand
Simple rhodium-chlorophosphine pre-catalysts for the ortho-arylation of phenols.
Simple chlorodiisopropylphosphine adducts of rhodium, either pre-formed or formed in situ, prove to be highly effective catalysts for the ortho-arylation of phenols.
Cu(II) and Ni(II) Complexes with New Tridentate NNS Thiosemicarbazones: Synthesis, Characterisation, DNA Interaction, and Antibacterial Activity
The metal complexes showed greater antimicrobial activities than the precursor ligands against some of the microorganisms and had a 1 : 1 stoichiometry (metal-ligand). Expand
Studies on the Interaction of Alyteserin 1c Peptide and Its Cationic Analogue with Model Membranes Imitating Mammalian and Bacterial Membranes
Molecular dynamics results showed that the carboxy-terminal of the peptide +5 has the ability to insert into the surface of the PC/PG membranes, resulting in the increase of the membrane fluidity. Expand
Synthesis and structural characterization of novel three carbon atom bridged ansa-bis(indenyl)zirconocene complexes: Applications in ethylene polymerization
Abstract The ansa indenyl ligand precursors CH2CH2CH2(C9H6R)2 (R = Me (7), Et (8), Pr (9)) have been prepared by the reaction of the corresponding lithium indene, Li(C9H6R-1) (R = Me (4), Et (5), PrExpand
3D-QSAR study of ansa-metallocene catalytic behavior in ethylene polymerization
Abstract ansa -Zirconocene complexes have been studied by Three-Dimensional Quantitative Structure–Activity Relationship (3D-QSAR). Using the comparative molecular field analysis (CoMFA) method, theExpand
A novel alkenyl-substituted ansa -zirconocene complex with dual application as olefin polymerization catalyst and anticancer drug
Abstract The alkenyl substituted fulvene compound, (C5H4) CMe(CH2CH2CH CMe2) (1), reacts with one equivalent of LiMe to give the lithium derivative Li{C5H4(CMe2CH2CH2CH CMe2)} (2). The reaction of 2Expand
Dual investigation of lanthanide complexes with cinnamate and phenylacetate ligands: Study of the cytotoxic properties and the catalytic oxidation of styrene
