The present review describes the work carried out during the last 20 years in the field of the radioprotective activity and toxicity of several classes of organosilicon and organogermanium compounds (i.e. metallathiazolidines, metalladithioacetals, metallatranes and germathianes).
Silathiazolidine and metalladithioacetals (M = Si, Ge) have been prepared by the interaction of dialkyldichloro- or bis(diethylamino)dialkylsilanes and -germanes with 3-[N-(2- thioethyl)]amino-propanamide (WR-2529) and [1-thioethyl-2-(1-naphtylmethyl)]-2- imidazoline. The study of these compounds in the field of chemical radioprotection has shown a notable… (More)
