An anion receptor derived from a tren-based amide cryptand with pyridine spacers has been synthesized and characterized. Two crystal structures are reported: the hydrochloride salt and the fluoride complex. The cryptand shows extremely high binding with fluoride ion in DMSO-d6. Both the crystal structure and solution 19F NMR data indicate an encapsulated(More)
The design of supramolecular hosts for anions began with simple diaza bicycles, named katapinands, and has evolved over the last 40 years to a number of elegantly designed receptors capable of binding many different anions. About the same time the term cryptand appeared in reference to another bicyclic compound that was selective for alkaline-earth ions.(More)
A comparative study of the binding of nitrate and sulfate with a polyammonium monocycle L(1), (3,6,9,17,20,23-hexaazatricyclo[,15)]-triaconta-1(29),11,13,15(30),25,27-hexaene), and the corollary bicycle L(2), (1,4,12,15,18,26,31,39-octaazapentacyclo-[,10).1(20,24).1(33,37)]-tetratetraconta-6,7,9,20(43),21,23,33(42),34,36-nonaene), is(More)
A series of compounds containing the sulfonamide scaffold were synthesized and screened for their in vitro anticancer activity against a representative panel of human cancer cell lines, leading to the identification of N-(2-methyl-1H-indol-5-yl)-1-naphthalenesulfonamide (8e) as a compound showing a remarkable activity across the panel, with IC50 values in(More)
The synthesis, protonation, and Cu(2+) coordination chemistry of a tripodal heptaamine ligand (L(1)) functionalized with 2-pyridine fragments at the ends of its three branches are reported. L(1) presents six relatively high protonation constants followed by much more reduced constant that as indicated by the UV-vis and NMR data, occur on the pyridine(More)
The Zn(2+) coordination chemistry and luminescent behavior of two ligands constituted by an open 1,4,7-triazaheptane chain functionalized at both ends with 2-picolyl units and either a methylnaphthyl (L1) or a dansyl (L2) fluorescent unit attached to the central amino nitrogen are reported. The fluorescent properties of the ZnL1(2+) and ZnL2(2+) complexes(More)
Novel, highly positively charged tripodal polyamines with appended heterocyclic moieties revealed an intriguing panel of protonation species within the biologically relevant range. Studied compounds bind nucleotide monophosphates by mostly electrostatic interactions but only the imidazole analogue showed selectivity toward UMP in respect to other(More)
