Hetero-multinuclear, platinum/ruthenium species were synthesized and tested for their effect on the motility of A549 (nonsmall cell lung) and MDA-MB-231 (breast) cancer cells and for their ability to inhibit DNA mobility using gel electrophoresis. It was found that the Ru(2)Pt trinuclear species [Na(2)]{[Ru(III)Cl(4)(DMSO-S)(-μ-pyz)](2)Pt(II)Cl(2)}, AH197,(More)
Triamidoamine-supported zirconium complexes catalyze the heterodehydrocoupling of primary phosphines with silane and germanes. In this catalysis, P-Si or P-Ge products are observed exclusively with no competitive P-P bond formation. Phosphido complexes (N3N)ZrPHR (N3N = N(CH2CH2NSiMe3)33-, R = Ph, 2; Cy, 3) were observed to be the catalyst resting state,(More)
There are many methods that can be used to incorporate concepts of crystallography into the learning experiences of students, whether they are in elementary school, at university or part of the public at large. It is not always critical that those who teach crystallography have immediate access to diffraction equipment to be able to introduce the concepts(More)
Triamidoamine-supported zirconium complexes have been demonstrated to catalyze a range of bond-forming events utilizing arsines. Three different mechanisms have been observed in these reactions. In the first mechanism, triamidoamine-supported zirconium complexes of the general type (N3N)ZrX (N3N =N(CH2CH2NSiMe3)33-; X = monoanionic ligand) catalyzed the(More)
The reactivity of a triamidoamine-supported zirconium complex, [κ(5)-N,N,N,N,C-(Me(3)SiNCH(2)CH(2))(2)NCH(2)CH(2)NSiMe(2)CH(2)]Zr (1), toward polar, small-molecule substrates including isocyanides, organic azides, carbodiimides, nitriles, and ketones has been explored. The small-molecule substrates were found to react with the Zr-C bond of complex 1 via(More)
Ti((i)OPr)(4) was treated with 2.58 equiv of hydroquinone in THF to yield a red-orange powder formulated as [Ti(OC(6)H(4)O)(a)()(OC(6)H(4)OH)(3.34)(-)(1.83)(a)()(O(i)Pr)(0.66)(-)(0.17)(a)() (THF)(0.2)](n)() (1, (0.91 </= a </= 1.82)) based upon D(2)O/DCl quenching studies. Treatment of 1 with an excess of hydroquinone in Et(2)O or DME afforded burgundy(More)
Thermolysis of (iPrO)4V and 2,6-dihydroxynaphthalene in 4-(3-phenylpropyl)pyridine afforded [mer-V(mu 2,6-OC10H6O)1.5(4-(3-phenylpropyl)py)3]n (1; C57H54N3O3V, triclinic, P1, a = 10.450(2) A, b = 14.098(3) A, c = 16.765(3) A, alpha = 100.09(3) degrees, beta = 103.85(3) degrees, gamma = 103.08(3) degrees, Z = 2) and oxidation product bis-2,6-dinaphthol.(More)
Treatment of M(OiPr)4 (M = Ti, V) and [Zr(OEt)4]4 with excess 1,4-HOC6H4OH in THF afforded [M(OC6H4O)a(OC6H4OH)3.34-1.83a(OiPr)0.66-0.17a(THF)0.2]n (M = Ti, 1-Ti; V, 1-V, 0.91 < or = a < or = 1.82) and [Zr(1,4-OC6H4O)2-x(OEt)2x]n (1-Zr, x = 0.9). The combination of of 1-M (M = Ti, V, Zr) or M(OiPr)4 (M = Ti, V), excess 1,4- or 1,3-HOC6H4OH, and pyridine or(More)
Antimony compounds that feature multidentate aryloxide ligands, namely [eta4-N(o-C6H4O)3]Sb(OSMe2), {{[eta3-N(o-C6H4OH)(o-C6H4O)2]Sb}2(mu2-O)}2, and {[eta3-PhN(o-C6H4O)2]Sb}4(mu3-O)2 have been synthesized from N(o-C6H4OH)3 and PhN(o-C6H4OH)2 and structurally characterized by X-ray diffraction. While [eta4-N(o-C6H4O)3]Sb(OSMe2) exists as a discrete(More)
Molecules with well-defined structures that feature closely stacked aromatic rings are important for understanding π-π interactions. A previously reported C-shaped molecule with bithiophene-substituted quinoxaline rings suspended from an aliphatic bridge that holds the aromatic rings in close proximity exists as a pair of syn and anti diastereomers.
