7-Deaza-8-aza-adenine, namely 4-aminopyrazolo[3,4-d]pyrimidine (H4app), is a bioisoster of adenine (Hade) resulting from the translocation of N7 and C8 atoms on the purine moiety. With the aim of studying the influence of this translocation on the metal binding abilities of H4app, we have prepared and structurally characterized two ternary copper(II)(More)
The compounds {[Cu(CMP)(Him)].H(2)O}(n) (I) and [Cu(CMP)(crea)H(2)O].3H(2)O (II) were synthesized and characterized by X-ray diffraction, thermal, spectral and magnetic methods (CMP=N-carboxymethyl-;l-prolinato(2-) ion, Him=imidazole and crea=creatinine). Appropriate structural comparison with other compounds such as {[Cu(CMP)(H(2)O)].H(2)O}(n),(More)
Completing an SAR study, a series of (RS)-6-substituted-7- or 9-(1,2,3,5-tetrahydro-4,1-benzoxazepine-3-yl)-7H or 9H-purines has been prepared under microwave-assisted conditions. Their antiproliferative activities on MCF-7 and MDA-MB-231 cancerous cell lines are presented, being the majority of the IC(50) values below 1μM. The most active compound(More)
A series of eleven 2- and 6-substituted (R,S)-9-(2,3-dihydro-1,4-benzoxathiin-3-ylmethyl)-9H-purine derivatives was obtained by applying a standard Mitsunobu protocol that led to a six-membered ring contraction from (R,S)-3,4-dihydro-2H-1,5-benzoxathiepin-3-ol via an episulfonium intermediate. The signal approximately delta=151 ppm, which corresponds to the(More)
We report the synthesis, structural characterization, and functionality (framework interconversions together with proton conductivity) of an open-framework hybrid that combines Ca(2+) ions and the rigid polyfunctional ligand 5-(dihydroxyphosphoryl)isophthalic acid (PiPhtA). Ca2[(HO3PC6H3COOH)2]2[(HO3PC6H3(COO)2H)(H2O)2]·5H2O (Ca-PiPhtA-I) is obtained by(More)
In order to deepen on metal-binding patterns of acyclovir (acv), {[Cu(IDA)(acv)]·2MeOH}(n) (1) and [Cu(glygly)(acv)]·H(2)O (2) compounds have been synthesized and investigated by X-ray crystallography as well as spectral and thermal methods. These compounds have been chosen upon the assumption that iminodiacetate (IDA) and glycylglycinate (glygly) chelating(More)
A series of one-dimensional Ni(2)Ln cationic complexes have been prepared by assembling the in situ generated dinuclear mesocate [Ni(2)(mbpb)(3)](2-) building block [H(2)mbpb is the ligand 1,3-bis(pyridine-2-carboxamide)benzene] with Ln(3+) metal ions (Ln(3+) = Gd, Tb, Dy). The crystal-field potentials for the two types of site symmetries found for these(More)
Titanocene(III) complexes, easily generated in situ from commercial Ti(IV) precursors, catalyze Barbier-type allylations, intramolecular crotylations (cyclizations), and prenylations of a wide range of aldehydes and ketones. The reaction displays surprising and unprecedented mechanistic subtleties. In cyclizations a fast and irreversible addition of an(More)
A family of M-VP (M = Ni, Co, Cd, Mn, Zn, Fe, Cu, Pb; VP = vinylphosphonate) and M-PVP (M = Co, Cd; PVP = phenylvinylphosphonate) materials have been synthesized by hydrothermal methods and characterized by FT-IR, elemental analysis, and thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). Their structures were determined either by single crystal X-ray crystallography or from(More)
We describe a new strategy to control the number of cyclization steps in bioinspired radical (poly)cyclizations involving epoxypolyenes containing keto units positioned along the polyene chain. This approach provides an unprecedentedly straightforward access to natural terpenoids with pendant unsaturated side chains. Additionally, in the case of bi- and(More)
