A series of new organometallic carbosilane dendrimers (first and second generation) and the corresponding non-dendritic mononuclear based on ruthenium arene fragments are described. The metallodendrimers were prepared by reactions of the precursor [Ru(η(6)-p-cymene)Cl2]2 with carbosilane dendrimers functionalized with N-donor monodentate ligands such as(More)
Gold nanoparticles are new kinds of nanomaterials. Their large surface-to-volume ratio, stability, excellent biocompatibility, low toxicity and functionality make them very attractive for biomedical applications. Therefore we have analyzed how dendronized gold nanoparticles interact with human alpha-1-microglobulin. This is a glycoprotein of ∼30kDa present(More)
The concept of a "microbicide" was born out of the lack of a vaccine against HIV and the difficulty of women in ensuring the use of preventive prophylaxis by their partners, especially in developing countries. Approaches using polyanionic carbosilane dendrimers have shown promise in the development of new microbicides. We have developed and evaluated two(More)
Unprotected heterosexual intercourse is the first route for sustaining the global spread of human immunodeficiency virus type 1 (HIV-1), being responsible for 80% of new HIV-1 infections in the world. The presence of inflammation in the female reproductive tract and the presence of semen increases the risk of heterosexual HIV-1 transmission. This(More)
