Asiatic acid (AA) derivatives 4 and 5 modified at the C-11 and C-28 positions were designed and synthesized, their structures were confirmed using HRMS, (1)H NMR and (13)C NMR. In vitro antitumor activities of all compounds against MGC-803, NCI-H460, HepG2, Hela and 7404 cancer cell lines were evaluated and compared with commercial anticancer drug(More)
Several rhein α-aminophosphonates conjugates (5a-5q) were synthesized and evaluated for in vitro cytotoxicity against HepG-2, CNE, Spca-2, Hela and Hct-116 cell lines. Some compounds showed relatively high cytotoxicity. Especially, compound 5i exhibited the strongest cytotoxicity against Hct-116 cells (IC50 was 5.32 μM). All the synthesized compounds(More)
A series of dipeptide derivatives from dehydroabietic acid were designed and synthesized as novel antitumor agents. The antitumor activities screening indicated that many compounds showed moderate to high levels of inhibition activities against NCI-H460, HepG2, SK-OV-3, BEL-7404, HeLa and HCT-116 cancer cell lines and that some displayed more potent(More)
The anticancer traditional Chinese medicine (TCM), plumbagin (PLN), was isolated from Plumbago Zeylanica. Reaction of plumbagin with Cu(II) salt, afforded [Cu(PLN)(2)].2H(2)O (1). With 2,2'-bipyridine (bipy) as a co-ligand, PLN reacts with Cu(II) to give [Cu(PLN)(bipy)(H(2)O)](2)(NO(3))(2).4H(2)O (2). 1 and 2 were characterized by elemental analysis, IR,(More)
BACKGROUND Alzheimer's disease (AD), a progressive and degenerative disorder, has become one of the severe problems among the aged population all over the world. To use cholinesterase inhibitor drugs has become the most predominant treatment strategy for AD. RESULTS A series of novel 1, 3-dihydroxyxanthone Mannich bases derivatives (1a ~ 4e) were(More)
A convenient one-pot Mannich-type-cyclization-oxidation tandem process has been developed for the synthesis of 1,3,5-trisubstituted pyrazoles derivatives from aldehydes, hydrazines and alkynes using p-toluenesulfonic acid monohydrate (PTSA) as a multifunctional catalyst. This method provides a flexible and rapid route to 1,3,5-trisubstituted pyrazoles.
Complexes of copper (II) with hesperetin, naringenin, and apigenin of general composition [CuL(2)(H(2)O)(2)] nH(2)O (1-3) have been synthesized and characterized by elemental analysis, UV-Vis, FT-IR, ESI-MS, and TG-DTG thermal analysis. The free ligands and the metal complexes have been tested in vitro against human cancer cell lines hepatocellular(More)
4-Schiff base-7-benzyloxy-coumarins 5a(1)-5h(2) and its derivative 6 were designed and synthesized based on the 7-benzyloxy-coumarin structure as novel antioxidants. The in vitro antioxidant activities screening revealed that 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) radical scavenging activities of compounds 5b(1), 5d(1), 5f(1), 5f(2), 5g(1) and 5g(2), and(More)
A series of novel thiourea α-aminophosphonate derivatives containing DHA structure was designed and synthesized as antitumor agents. Their inhibitory activities against the NCI-H460 (lung), A549 (lung adenocarcinoma), HepG2 (liver) and SKOV3 (ovarian) human cancer cell lines were estimated using MTT assay in vitro. The screening results revealed that many(More)
In this study, chemical composition and antioxidant properties of Ocimum gratissimum (Og) were investigated. Leaves of Og were extracted using ethanol to obtain an ethanolic crude extract (ECE), and then ECE was sequentially partitioned with petroleum ether, ethyl acetate, n-butanol, and deionized water to give the corresponding petroleum ether fraction,(More)
