A series of resorcinaren-PAMAM dendrimers with benzodiazepines in the periphery were synthesized and their anticancer properties studied. The synthesized dendrimers showed potential anticancer activities, which were enhanced in the presence of a chloro-substituent in the second ring of the 5-aryl-1,4-benzodiazepine. The dendrimers were characterized by IR,(More)
Dendrons of pyrene derivatives were attached to a porphyrin core. A marked effect in solution for the dendrimers was observed in the absorption spectra. All the compounds obtained were characterized by (1)H-, (13)C-NMR, FTIR, UV-vis, MALDI-TOF or FAB+ mass spectrometry and elemental analysis. The cubic nonlinear optical behavior of some the synthesized(More)
Fully conjugated pyrene-anthracene-based molecular rods were synthesized by the Horner-Wadsworth– Emmons reaction utilizing potassium tert-butoxide in dry THF. The synthesized rods, which have butylene groups as solubility spacers in the main chain, exhibited good solubility in polar solvents. The solutions of the synthesized pyrenecontaining molecular rods(More)
Two new classes of dendrimers bearing 8 and 32 fluorene donor groups have been synthesized. The first and second generations of these porphyrin-PAMAM-fluorene dendrimers were characterized by 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR, FTIR, UV-vis spectroscopy, elemental analyses and MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry. The UV-vis spectra showed that the individual properties of donor and(More)
Novel fluorescent dendrimers of first, second, and third generation bearing a conjugated oligo(phenylenevinylene) (OPV) core and peripherial allyl chains as dendrons have been synthesized by a convergent method. The compounds have been fully characterized by 1H, 13C NMR, FTIR, UV-vis, and fluorescence spectroscopy, MALDI-TOF or FAB+ mass spectroscopy and(More)
Dendrons with ferrocenyl ended groups joined by styryl moieties were attached to a porphyrin core. All the dendrons used for dendrimer synthesis showed trans configuration. The chemical structure of the first generation dendron was confirmed by X-ray crystallographic studies. The structure of the synthesized dendrimers was confirmed by 1H- and 13C-NMR,(More)
C60 pyrene anthrylvinylene triads were synthesized with good yields by an O-alkylation reaction of pyrene anthracene chloride derivatives and functionalized fullerene C60. The presence of lateral butoxy chains imparts good solubility. The NMR data indicate the formation of only the trans isomers. After C60 cyclopropanation, the UV-Vis spectra show the(More)
A new class of porphyrin array was synthesized. The Cu(II) porphyrin-PAMAM-Cu(II) porphyrin was obtained in good yields. The EPR studies showed that all porphyrins obtained have signals of a copper complex with planar geometry, and no variation in the tetrahedral distortion of the porphyrin ring was observed. The UV-vis and emission studies showed that the(More)
Dendrimers bearing pyrene donor groups have been obtained and act as efficient light-harvesting antennae capable of transferring light energy through space from their periphery to their core. The light-harvesting ability increases with each generation due to an increase in the number of peripheral pyrenes. In order to evaluate the photovoltaic properties of(More)
Dendron conjugated branches of stilbene and 4-styrylstilbene groups have been attached to resor-cinarene cores. A noticeable effect in solution for all dendrimers was observed in the fluorescence quantum yield. The optical properties do not change with concentration in solution. The optical properties of thin films are identical to those of the solutions(More)
