Series of novel derivatives of quinazoline containing thiosemicarbazide moiety 5 and 9 have been synthesized and tested for their antitumor activities in vitro against a panel of five human cancer cell lines. Bioassay results indicated that most of the prepared compounds exhibited cytotoxicity against various cancer cells. From the structure-activity(More)
Five new xanthones, namely Garcinexanthones A-E (1-5), were isolated from the barks of Garcinia xanthochymus. Their structures were elucidated by spectral analysis, primarily NMR, MS, and UV. The complete assignments of the (1)H NMR and (13)C NMR chemical shifts for the compounds were achieved by using 1D and 2D NMR techniques, including DEPT, HSQC, and(More)
A novel series of chalcone derivatives containing pyrimidinyl group were synthesized and evaluated for their cytotoxic activities in vitro against various human cancer cell lines. Most of the prepared compounds showed potential cytotoxicity against several human cancer cell lines. The compound 5g displayed more potent cytotoxic activities against human(More)
A series of organophosphorous compounds (OPs), 1-(substituted phenoxyacetoxy)alkylphosphonates containing a chiral carbon atom, show notable herbicidal activities. In this study, the enantioselective separation and biological toxicity of all these compounds were investigated. The enantioselective separation on the columns of Chiralpak AD, Chiralpak AS,(More)
A series of 2-(substituted phenoxyacetoxy)alkyl-5,5-dimethyl-1,3,2-dioxaphosphinan-2-ones IIa-s were designed and synthesized on the basis of the previous work for the modification of alkylphosphonates I, and their structures were confirmed by (1)H NMR, (31)P NMR, (13)C NMR, IR, MS, and elemental analysis. Their herbicidal activities against seven species(More)
As potential inhibitors of Escherichia coli pyruvate dehydrogenase complex E1 (PDHc E1), a series of novel 2-methylpyrimidine-4-ylamine derivatives were designed based on the structure of the active site of PDHc E1 and synthesized using 'click chemistry'. Their inhibitory activity in vitro against PDHc E1 and fungicidal activity were examined. Some of these(More)
On the basis of the previous work for optimization of O,O-diethyl α-(substituted phenoxyacetoxy)alkylphosphonates, further extensive synthetic modifications were made to the substituents in alkylphosphonate and phenoxy moieties of the title compounds. New O,O-dimethyl α-(substituted phenoxyacetoxy)alkylphosphonates were synthesized as potential inhibitors(More)
Garcinia xanthochymus has been widely used in traditional Chinese medicine for expelling worms and removing food toxins. Bioassay-guided fractionation of an EtOAc-soluble extract of G. xanthochymus stem bark led to the isolation of six new xanthones. Their structures were elucidated by spectroscopic methods, especially 2D-NMR techniques.(More)
We have tested a computational protocol based on molecular mechanics-Poisson-Boltzmann surface area (MM-PBSA) free-energy calculations to examine the detailed microscopic structures and binding free energies for the pyruvate dehydrogenase multienzyme complex (PDHc) E1 binding with its ligands (cofactor and inhibitors). The calculated binding free energies(More)
The synthesis and biological activity of 1,3-benzenedicarbonyl dithioureas are described. Bioassay results indicated that these compounds exhibited cytotoxicity against various cancer cells. For example, compounds 4a showed the best inhibition activities against KB and CNE2 with IC(50) 10.72 and 9.91 μM, respectively.
