Two binuclear copper(II) complexes of 3,5-diisopropylsalicylic acid were characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction methods and examined for anti-inflammatory activity using activated polymorphonuclear leukocytes and for anticonvulsant activities using electroshock and metrazol models of seizures. These complexes were crystallized from(More)
The purpose of this research was to characterize by X-ray crystallography the ternary dimethylformamide (DMF) Cu(II) complex of acetylsalicylic acid (aspirin), in an effort to compare the structure-activity relationships for the anticonvulsant activity of this and other Cu(II)aspirinate chelates. The ternary DMF Cu(II) complex of aspirin was synthesized and(More)
The molybdenum(III) coordination complexes MoX(3)(PMe(3))(3) (X = Cl, Br, and I) are capable of controlling styrene polymerization under typical atom transfer radical polymerization (ATRP) conditions, in conjunction with 2-bromoethylbenzene (BEB) as an initiator. The process is accelerated by the presence of Al(OPr(i))(3) as a cocatalyst. Electrochemical(More)
A new family of hexakis(ferrocenylethynyl)benzenes was synthesized by Negishi coupling from ethynylferrocenes and C(6)Br(6) and can be reversibly oxidized to stable hexaferrocenium salts (see picture, Ar(F)=[3,5-C(6)H(3)(CF(3))(2)]). Their cyclic voltammograms show a single six-electron wave, three distinct two-electron waves, or a cascade of six(More)
The origin of the reversal of the enantioselectivity in the palladium-catalyzed allylic alkylation of rac-1,3-diphenyl-2-propenyl acetate with dimethyl malonate anion using chiral dihydroxy bis(oxazoline) "BO" ligands derived from (1S,2S)-(+)-2-amino-1-phenyl-1,3-propanediol was investigated. To determine the structural effects of the dihydroxy BO ligand on(More)
Complexes [MoCp(#)(PMe(3))(2)H(3)] (Cp(#)=1,2,4-C(5)H(2)tBu(3), 2 a; C(5)HiPr(4), 2 b) have been synthesized from the corresponding compounds [MoCp(#)Cl(4)] (1 a, 1 b) and fully characterized, including by X-ray crystallography and by a neutron diffraction study for 2 a. Protonation of 2 a led to complex [Mo(1,2,4-C(5)H(2)tBu(3))(PMe(3))(2)H(4)](+) (3 a) in(More)
"Click" reactions between ethynylferrocene and mono-, bis-, and tris-azido aromatic derivatives yielded mono-, bis-, and tris-1,2,3-ferrocenyltriazoles (1, 2, and 3, respectively) as orange crystals. The X-ray crystal structure of the monoferrocenyltriazole compound 1 was solved with two nearly identical molecules within the asymmetric unit. In both(More)
The ruthenium bis(bipyridine) sulfoxide complexes Ru-1 and Ru-2 exhibit high catalytic activity for epoxidation of unfunctionalized olefins in the presence of [bis(acetoxy)iodo]benzene; with the chiral catalyst, Ru-2, asymmetric induction up to 94% was observed for beta-methylstyrene.
The title compound, C(15)H(21)ClO(4), was synthesized from 9α-hy-droxy-parthenolide (9α-hy-droxy-4,8-dimethyl-12-methylen-3,14-dioxatricyclo-[9.3.0.0(2,4)]tetra-dec-7-en-13-one), which was isolated from the chloro-form extract of the aerial parts of Anvillea radiata. The mol-ecule is built up from fused five- and ten-membered rings. The five-membered(More)
Two enantiopure palladium(II) complexes, viz. [1,1'-(butane-1,3-diyl)-3,3',4,4'-tetramethyl-5,5'-diphenyl-2,2'-biphosphole]dichloridopalladium(II) dichloromethane solvate [systematic name: dichlorido(1,2,5,10,11-pentamethyl-3,9-diphenylperhydrodicyclopenta[a,c][1,4]diphosphepine-kappa(2)P,P')palladium(II) dichloromethane solvate], [PdCl2(C28H30P2)] x(More)
