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)
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)
Reaction of [(triphos)Re(CO)(2)(OTf)] (1) [triphos = MeC(CH(2)PPh(2))(3); OTf = OSO(2)CF(3)] with P(4)S(3) and P(4)Se(3) yields pairs of coordination isomers, namely, [(triphos)Re(CO)(2)[eta(1)-P(apical)-P(4)X(3)]](+) (X = S, 2; Se, 5) and [(triphos)Re(CO)(2)[eta(1)-P(basal)-P(4)X(3)]](+) (X = S, 3; Se, 6). The latter represent the first examples of the(More)
A family of new Fischer-type rhenium(III) benzoyldiazenido-2-oxacyclocarbenes of formula [(ReCl2[eta1-N2C(O)Ph][=C(CH2)nCH(R)O](PPh3)2][n = 2, R = H (2), R = Me (3); n = 3, R = H (4), R = Me (5)] have been prepared by reaction of [ReCl2[eta2-N2C(Ph)O](PPh3)2] (1) with omega-alkynols, such as 3-butyn-1-ol, 4-pentyn-1-ol, 4-pentyn-2-ol, 5-hexyn-2-ol in(More)
[Cp(*)RhCl(PTA)(2)]X (PTA = 7-phospha-1,3,5-triazaadamantane) undergoes an H/D exchange process between the methyl groups of Cp(*) and D(2)O whose rate depends on the coordinating ability of the counterion X(-). Kinetic studies and DFT calculations indicate that deuteration involves the abstraction of a Me-Cp(*) proton by a coordinated OH(-); the formation(More)
A simple protocol is presented here for the use of inexpensive polymethylhydrosiloxane (PMHS), a waste product of the silicon industry, as stoichiometric reducing agent for phosphine oxides to phosphines, a highly desirable reaction to recover P-based ligands from their spent form. The reactions were studied by screening parameters, such as substrate to(More)
Catalytic dehydrogenation of ammonia-borane (NH(3)·BH(3), AB) and dimethylamine borane (NHMe(2)·BH(3), DMAB) by the Pd(II) complex [((tBu)PCP)Pd(H(2)O)]PF(6) [(tBu)PCP = 2,6-C(6)H(3)(CH(2)P(t)Bu(2))(2)] leads to oligomerization and formation of spent fuels of general formula cyclo-[BH(2)-NR(2)](n) (n = 2,3; R = H, Me) as reaction byproducts, while one(More)
