A series of 3,3'-dindolylmethane derivatives have been synthesized and their structures were characterized in solid state by (13)C CP/MAS NMR and two of them by X-ray diffraction measurements. They exhibited well expressed cytotoxicity against human melanoma cell lines. Derivatives bearing fluoro, bromo, iodo, and nitro substituents in indole or benzene(More)
A series of novel O-aminoalkyl substituted 7-hydroxycoumarins were synthesized and evaluated for antibacterial and anticancer toxicity. Two different synthetic procedures, conventional and microwave assisted were used, and the structures of the compounds were confirmed by IR, 1H, 13C NMR and MAS spectroscopic data. The molecular and crystal structures of(More)
Halogen derivatives of selected 3-benzofurancarboxylic acids were prepared using 6-acetyl-5-hydroxy-2-methyl-3-benzofuranocarboxylic acid as starting material. (1)H-NMR spectra were obtained for all of the synthesized structures, and for compound VI, an X-ray crystal structure was also obtained. All derivatives were tested for antimicrobial activity against(More)
Derivatives of 2- and 3-benzo[b]furancarboxylic acids were prepared and evaluated for their cytotoxic potential in the National Cancer Institute, Bethesda, USA. Six compounds: 7-acetyl-6-hydroxy-3-methyl-2-benzofurancarboxylic acid (2), 6-hydroxy-7-(p-methoxycinnamoyl)-3-methyl-2-benzofurancarboxylic acid (4),(More)
The synthesis, structure, in vitro and in vivo pharmacological activities of 3β-acylamine derivatives of tropane (4a-n, 5a-g, 6a,b, 8a-c) are described. Among the investigated compounds, several displayed very high (in nM) affinity for the monoamine receptors 5-HT(1A), 5-HT(2A,) and D(2). The most interesting agent 6b revealed very high affinity for the(More)
Derivatives of 4-aryl-5,6,7,8-tetrahydro-pyrido[1,2-c]pyrimidine were synthesized. These compounds contain the 3-(4-piperidyl)-1H-indole residue or its 5-methoxy or 2-methyl derivative. In vitro binding tests were performed to determine the affinity of the compounds for the 5-HT(1A) receptor and serotonin transporter (SERT) proteins in the rat brain cortex.(More)
Facile and practical electrochemical DNA bioassay, X-ray diffraction analysis, synthesis and 1H and 13C NMR data of the 5,5'-disubstituted-3,3'-methanediyl-bis-indoles are reported. On the basis of electrochemical measurements we have hypothesized that the analyzed bis-indoles have an effect on human tumor cells due to DNA binding at adenine-thymidine(More)
Synthesis applied to prepare compounds 5-15 and 17-22 discussed in this paper has been presented in Scheme 1. Multi-stage preparation techniques were used to obtain 4-aryl-hexahydro 1-4 and (R,R) and (S,S) 4-aryl-octahydropyrido[1,2-c]pyrimidine-1,3-dione (16) derivatives, being the starting compounds for further modification. N-Alkylation of the imide(More)
The crystal structures of the title 1,4-bis(4-cyanobenzyl)piperazine (1) and 1,4-bis(4-amidinobenzyl)piperazine tetrahydrochloride tetrahydrate (2) are reported. Compound (1) crystallizes in the triclinic space group P\bar 1 and compound (2) in the monoclinic space group P21/n. In both (1) and (2) the asymmetric unit contains one half of the molecule(More)
