BACKGROUND Chitosan, a non-toxic, biodegradable and biocompatible polysaccharide has attained great interest in pharmaceutical applications, as versatile drug delivery agent. Chitosan has been already shown to serve as vehicle for sustained drug release by chitosan-vanadium(IV) complex from a chitosan gel matrix. Therefore, chitosan gel proved to retain(More)
Cu(ii) complexes with Schiff bases derived from 2-pyridin-2-ylethanamine were obtained and characterized by UV-Vis, fluorescence, and IR spectra. The X-ray crystal structures determined for [Cu(ii)(epy(di-t-Buba))Cl] × 0.042H2O and [Cu(ii)(epy(di-t-Buba))O2CCH3] revealed tetrahedral distortion of the Cu(ii) coordination sphere in the solid phase. For both(More)
Potentiometric and EPR data allow for evaluation of the coordination equilibria in the Cu(2+)-bisphosphonate system. The bisphosphonic ligand was found very efficient in Cu(2+) chelation with formation of monomeric and dimeric species. Two phosphonate groups are basic binding sites for metal ion. The involvement of hydroxyl in metal ion coordination is also(More)
Copper(II) complexes of the 1-17 (MDVFMKGLSKAKEGVVA-NH(2)), 1-28 (MDVFMKGLSKAKEGVVAAAEKTKQGVAE-NH(2)), 1-39 (MDVFMKGLSKAKEGVVAAAEKTKQGVAEAPGKTKEGVLY-NH(2)) and 1-39 (A30P) fragments of alpha-synuclein were studied by potentiometric, UV-Vis (UV-visible), CD (circular dichroism) and EPR (electron paramagnetic resonance) spectroscopic methods to determine the(More)
The heterometallic complex [Co(4)Fe(2)OSae(8)]·4DMF·H(2)O (1) was synthesized by one-pot reaction of cobalt powder with iron chloride in a dimethylformamide solution of salicylidene-2-ethanolamine (H(2)Sae) and characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis, magnetic measurements, high frequency electron paramagnetic resonance (HF-EPR), and(More)
Three new nitrato copper(II) complexes of dimethyl substituted 4-nitropyridine N-oxide were synthesized and characterized by elemental analysis, magnetic, spectroscopic, thermal and X-ray methods, respectively. They were isolated as trans isomers, mononuclear (μ=1.70-1.88 BM), five (1-2) and four (3) coordinate species of general formula [Cu(NO3)2(H2O)L2](More)
Two heterometallic polymers containing cations [Cu(en)2]2+ and either the [Mn(mal)2(H2O)2]2- (1) or [Mn2(succ)2Cl2]n2n- (2) anions (mal=malonate and succ=succinate) were investigated by X-ray crystallography, high-field electron paramagnetic resonance (EPR) spectroscopy, and magnetic susceptibility measurements. Magnetic susceptibility and EPR spectra(More)
X-band (9.76 GHz) and high field (416.00 GHz) electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopy (EPR) was used to study the interactions between Pb(II) ions and semiquinone radicals of natural humic acids and their simple models. The EPR experiments were performed on powder samples. The formation of Pb(II) complexes with the radicals was accompanied by a(More)
High stability of the complexes formed at physiological pH is one of the basic requisites that a good iron chelator must possess. At the same time the chelating agent must be selective toward iron, i.e., the stability of iron complexes must be significantly higher than that of the complexes formed with essential metal ions, in order that these last ones do(More)
An unprecedented hexanuclear heterotrimetallic Fe/Cu/Co complex bearing two Cu(mu-O)2Co(mu-O)2Fe cores is easily prepared by self-assembly and acts as a remarkable catalyst for the peroxidative oxidation of cycloalkanes under mild conditions.
