Ring opening of amino epoxides derived from naturally occurring amino acids with lithium diphenylphosphido borane is reported as an efficient approach to a new family of enantiomerically enriched multifunctional phosphines.
The novel iridium(III) hydride [(kappa(3)-P,P,P-NP(3))IrH(3)] [NP(3) = N(CH(2)CH(2)PPh(2))(3)] was synthesized and characterized by spectroscopic methods and X-ray crystallography. Its reactivity with strong (HBF(4)) and medium-strength [the fluorinated alcohols 1,1,1-trifluoroethanol (TFE) and 1,1,1,3,3,3-hexafluoroisopropanol (HFIP)] proton donors was(More)
Three new thiazolo[5,4-d]thiazole-based organic dyes have been designed and synthesized for employment as DSSC sensitizers. Alternation of the electron poor thiazolothiazole unit with two propylenedioxythiophene (ProDOT) groups ensured very intense light absorption in the visible region (ε up to 9.41 × 10(4) M(-1) cm(-1) in THF solution). The dyes were(More)
Generations 1 to 3 of dendrimers ended by water-soluble phosphines are synthesized and their ruthenium complexes are used as catalysts in aqueous media; a slightly positive dendritic effect on the regioselectivity is observed for hydration of alkynes and a large positive dendritic effect is observed in the biphasic (water/heptane) catalysed isomerisation of(More)
A series of organometallic compounds of general formula [(arene)M(PTA)(n)X(m)]Y (arene = eta(6)-C(10)H(14), eta-C(5)Me(5)); M = Ru(ii), Os(ii), Rh(iii) and Ir(iii); X = Cl, mPTA; Y = OTf, PF(6)) have been screened for their cytotoxicity and ability to inhibit cathepsin B in vitro, in comparison to the antimetastatic compound NAMI-A. The Ru and Os analogues(More)

Thermal reaction of white phosphorus with [(triphos)RhH(3)] (1) in THF affords [(triphos)Rh(eta(1):eta(2)-P(4)H)] (2), triphos=MeC(CH(2)PPh(2))(3). Similar complexes [(triphos)Rh(eta(1):eta(2)-P(4)R)] (R=Me (7), Et (8), Ph (9)) also form at lower temperature by the reaction of P(4) and [(triphos)Rh(R)(eta(2)-C(2)H(4))] with elimination of ethene.

An improved, high-yield, one-pot synthetic procedure for water-soluble ligands functionalized with trialkyl ammonium side groups H2 N(CH2 )2 NHSO2 -p-C6 H4 CH2 [NMe2 (Cn H2n+1 )](+) ([HL(n) ](+) ; n=8, 16) was developed. The corresponding new surface-active complexes [(p-cymene)RuCl(L(n) )] and [Cp*RhCl(L(n) )] (Cp*=η(5) -C5 Me5 ) were prepared and(More)
Ruthenium(II) arene complexes of 1,4,7-triaza-9-phosphatricyclo[5.3.2.1]tridecane (CAP) were obtained. Cytotoxicity studies against cancer cell lines reveal higher activity than the corresponding PTA analogues and, in comparison to the effects on noncancerous cells, the complexes are endowed with a reasonable degree of cancer cell selectivity.
