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)
Two ruthenium(III) complexes composed of 5,7-ditertbutyl-1,2,4-triazolo[1,5-a]pyrimidine (dbtp) ligands were prepared and structurally characterized by X-ray crystallography, IR, UV-Vis, EPR spectroscopies and cyclic voltammetry (CV). The crystal structures of trans-[RuCl(3)(H(2)O)(dbtp)(2)] 1 and mer-[RuCl(3)(dbtp)(3)]·0.815OCMe(2) 2 showed slightly… (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.
Two novel heterotrimetallic octa-[Cu2CoPbCl4(L)4]2 (1) and pentanuclear [Cu2CoCd2Cl6(L)4(HOMe)2] (2) complexes have been prepared in one-pot reactions of zerovalent copper with metal chlorides in a methanol (for 1) or acetonitrile (for 2) solution of 2-(dimethylamino)ethanol (HL) in open air. The crystal structures of both compounds consist of discrete… (More)
