AIM To study the efficacy of novel rhenium compounds to treat triple node negative breast cancer. PLACE AND DURATION Six (6) novel rhenium pentycarbanato compounds (PC1-6) were synthesized and triple node negative breast cancer cell lines HTB-132 and Balb/c mouse kidney cell lines were treated with each of them for 48 hours. The results were analyzed by a(More)
Despite the tremendous success of cisplatin and other platinum-based anticancer drugs, severe toxicity and resistance to tumors limit their applications. It is believed that the coordination (formation of covalent bond) of the metal (platinum) to the nitrogen bases of DNA cause the ruptures of the cancer as well as normal cells. A search for anticancer(More)
The reactive intermediate produced upon photolysis of 8-azidoadenosine was studied by chemical trapping studies, laser flash photolysis with UV-vis and IR detection, and modern computational chemistry. It is concluded that photolysis of 8-azidoadenosine in aqueous solution releases the corresponding singlet nitrene which rapidly tautomerizes to form a(More)
Aggregation-induced enhanced emission (AIEE) is reported for 1-cyano-trans-1,2-bis-(4-carbazolyl)phenylethylene (CN-CPE). The weak luminescence of dilute CN-CPE solutions is enhanced upon aggregate formation into 2-3 μm sized crystals. In contrast to general observations, crystal formation of CN-CPE causes a blue-shift in emission and enhances the(More)
The intramolecular [2+2] photocyclization of a bis-stilbene macrocycle was studied. The reaction can be controlled by the insertion and removal of urea protecting groups. Upon UV-irradiation in both the solid state and DMSO solution, the free urea macrocycle undergoes a cis-trans photoisomerization that is followed by a [2+2] cycloaddition to afford a(More)
Hydrogenation of esters is vital to the chemical industry for the production of alcohols, especially fatty alcohols that find broad applications in consumer products. Current technologies for ester hydrogenation rely on either heterogeneous catalysts operating under extreme temperatures and pressures or homogeneous catalysts containing precious metals such(More)
A series of iron bis(phosphinite) pincer complexes with the formula of [2,6-((i)Pr2PO)2C6H3]Fe(PMe2R)2H (R = Me, 1; R = Ph, 2) or [2,6-((i)Pr2PO)2-4-(MeO)C6H2]Fe(PMe2Ph)2H (3) have been tested for catalytic dehydrogenation of ammonia borane (AB). At 60 °C, complexes 1-3 release 2.3-2.5 equiv of H2 per AB in 24 h. Among the three iron catalysts, 3 exhibits(More)
There is much interest in designing molecular sized containers that influence and facilitate chemical reactions within their nanocavities. On top of the advantages of improved yield and selectivity, the studies of reactions in confinement also give important clues that extend our basic understanding of chemical processes. We report here, the synthesis and(More)
The refined syntheses, modification, and first X-ray structural characterization of meso-tetraarylporphyrin-derived beta-tetraolbacteriochlorins are described. These investigations assign the relative stereochemistry of their two isomers (both cis-vic-diol pairs on the same or opposite sides of the porphyrin plane), an assignment that could not be provided(More)
Reaction of known meso-tetraarylporpholactone free bases 3, made from the corresponding porphyrins, with hydrazine produces three products: It converts the lactone functional group into an N-aminolactam moiety, generating porphyrin-like N-aminoporpholactams 8. It also reduces regioselectively the β,β'-double bond of the pyrrolic moiety opposite to the(More)
