The synthesis, characterization and the anti-Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB) activities of three ruthenium complexes containing the 2-pyridinecarboxylic acid anion (picolinate), with formulae cis- [Ru(pic)(dppm)(2)]PF(6) (1), cis- [Ru(pic)(dppe)(2)]PF(6) (2) and [Ru(pic)(2)(PPh(3))(2)] (3) [pic=2-pyridinecarboxylate; dppm=bis(diphenylphosphino)methane;(More)
This paper describes the synthesis and characterization of four new ruthenium complexes containing 1,4 bis(diphenylphosphino)butane (dppb), 2-pyridinecarboxylic acid anion (pic) and the diimines [(2,2'-bipyridine (bipy), 4,4'-dimethyl-2,2'-bipyridine (Me-bipy), 4,4'-dichloro-2,2'-bipyridine (Cl-bipy) and 1,10-phenanthroline (phen) as ligands, with formulae(More)
Rifampicin, discovered more than 50 years ago, represents the last novel class of antibiotics introduced for the first-line treatment of tuberculosis. Drugs in this class form part of a 6-month regimen that is ineffective against MDR and XDR TB, and incompatible with many antiretroviral drugs. Investments in R&D strategies have increased substantially in(More)
