Photodynamic therapy (PDT) has emerged as an alternative and promising noninvasive treatment for cancer. It is a two-step procedure that uses a combination of molecular oxygen, visible light, and photosensitizer (PS) agents; phthalocyanine (Pc) was supported over titanium oxide but has not yet been used for cell inactivation. Zinc phthalocyanine (ZnPc)(More)
Quinazolinone and quinazolinedione derivatives are of considerable interest due to their wide array of pharmacological properties. In this paper we report the synthesis of ten quinazolinediones. The previous isolation of two of these compounds, namely 1-methyl-3-(2'-phenylethyl)-1H,3H-quinazoline-2,4-dione and 1-methyl-3-[2'-(4'-(More)
The efforts for synthesis of enantiomerically pure bis-(1,2,3-triazolylmethyl)amino esters 6 are reported in good yields from an in situ generated α-azidomethyl ketone. Optimum experimental conditions were established for preparation of α-halomethyl ketones 10 and α-N,N-dipropargylamino esters 11, all derived from α-amino acids. The starting materials(More)
A library of 25-membered chalcones was prepared by parallel synthesis. Substituted acetophenones and benzaldehydes were condensed using the Claisen-Schmidt base-catalyzed aldol condensation. Several chalcones showed in vitro antiparasitic activity against Giardia lamblia. The highest activity observed for the IC(50) values were 12.72, 15.05 and 15.31(More)
A simple and efficient methodology for the synthesis of 1-alkyl-2,4-(1H,3H)-quinazolinediones from o-aminobenzamides has been developed. The novel one-pot cyclization-alkylation reactions are easier and faster than any other reported protocols and resulted in excellent yields (96-98%) and high purities, making this methodology suitable for library synthesis(More)
Chiral aminoalkyl epoxyaziridine 1 is synthesized in high yield and diastereoselectivity from L-serine. Ring opening of epoxyaziridine 1 with primary amines is carried out with total chemo- and regioselectivity, affording chiral polyfunctionalized piperidines 8. The structure of these trisubstituted piperidines is established by NMR studies.

It provides a simple and easily accessible publication mechanism for the growing number of inorganic, metal-organic and organic crystal structure determinations. The electronic(More)
(99m)Tc-HYNIC labeled Lys(3)-bombesin has shown specific binding to gastrin-releasing peptide receptors (GRP-r) over-expressed in cancer cells. Click chemistry offers an innovative functionalization strategy for biomolecules such as bombesin. The aim of this research was to apply a click chemistry approach for [(99m)Tc(CO)(3)] labeling of Lys(3)-bombesin(More)
In the present work, we report the library preparation on solid supports of 20 derivatives of 1,4,10,13-tetraoxa-7,15-diaza-cycloctadecane 1(a-e)(w,x,y,z) carrying a fluorescent dansyl group. The sensing fluorescence behavior of these materials toward alkali and alkali earth metal ions was studied by packing the beads into a conventional flow-through cell(More)
The automated parallel solid-phase synthesis of a 17-member library of metallothionein-mimic decapeptides carrying a Lariat ether group is described. The peptides were synthesized in good yield and the identity and quality of each product were performed by mass spectrometry and IR. Subsequently, in the presence of europium(III) ions as fluorescent reporter,(More)
