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)
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)
Alkylation is a very important chemical reaction which modifies the biological properties of drugs. Quinazolinedione derivatives are of considerable interest due to their wide array of pharmacological properties.We now report application of a practical alkylation procedure to several quinazolinediones, including pelanserine (5f), which shows(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)
A síntese de materiais para retenção e/ou pré-concentração de espécies de interesse clínico e ambiental, como íons metálicos, constitui uma importante área de pesquisa atual. Neste trabalho, descrevemos a síntese de diferentes suportes sólidos de antraceno sulfeto de fosfina para préconcentração de Cu(II) e Pb(II). As propriedades sensoras destes materiais(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)
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)
In the title compound, C(19)H(15)N(3), the benzyl group is almost perpendicular to the triazole ring [dihedral angle = 80.64 (8)°], while the napthyl group makes an angle of 30.27 (12)° with the plane of the triazole ring. This conformation is different from the 1-benzyl-4-phenyl-1H-1,2,3-triazole analogue, which has the benzyl ring system at an angle of(More)
