The macrocyclic compounds mono- and bis-iron(II) clathrochelates were firstly studied as potential anti-fibrillogenic agents using fluorescent inhibitory assay, atomic force microscopy and flow cytometry. It is shown that presence of the clathrochelates leads to the change in kinetics of insulin fibrillization reaction and reduces the amount of formed(More)
Monoribbed-substituted mono- and dicyano-functionalized iron(II) macrobicycles were obtained for the first time by the reaction of iron(II) diiodoclathrochelate precursor with copper(I) cyanide-triphenylphosphine complex under mild conditions. The target dinitrile clathrochelate is a minor product of this reaction, whereas the major product contains only(More)
The cycloaddition of the mono- and dichloroglyoximes to the cobalt(II) bis-α-benzyldioximate afforded the cobalt(II) mono- and dichloroclathrochelates in moderate yields (40-60%). These complexes undergo nucleophilic substitution of their reactive chlorine atoms with aliphatic amines, alcohols and thiolate anions. In the case of ethylenediamine and(More)
Interaction of the iron(II) mono- and bis-clathrochelates with bovine serum albumin (BSA), β-lactoglobulin, lysozyme and insulin was studied by the steady-state and time-resolved fluorescent spectroscopies. These cage complexes do not make significant impact on fluorescent properties of β-lactoglobulin, lysozyme and insulin. At the same time, the(More)
Coordination and organoelement compounds are rarely proposed as the drug candidates despite their vast potential in the area owing to their strictly controlled geometry and rather extensive surface. This is the first example of the inhibition of transcription in the system of T7 RNA polymerase by cage metal complexes. Their IC50 values reach as low as the(More)
Single-molecule magnets (SMMs) with one transition-metal ion often rely on unusual geometry as a source of magnetically anisotropic ground state. Here we report a cobalt(II) cage complex with a trigonal prism geometry showing single ion magnet behavior with very high Orbach relaxation barrier of 152 cm(-1). This, to our knowledge, is the largest reported(More)
Template condensation on iron(II) ion of dichloroglyoxime (H2C12Gm) with (C6H5O)3, n-C4H9B(O-n-C4H9)2, and BF3.O(C2H5)2 in CH3NO2 afforded reactive clathrochelate precursors Fe(C12Gm)3(BC6H5)2 (2), Fe(C12Gm)3(B-n-C4H9)2 (3), and Fe(C12Gm)3(BF)2 (4). A series of triribbed-functionalized clathrochelate dioximates have been synthesized. Reaction of 2 with(More)
Nucleophilic substitution of an iron(ii) dichloroclathrochelate with diphenylphosphine sulfide under PTC afforded a monophosphorylated cage complex. This precursor undergoes further nucleophilic substitution with mono- and diamines giving P,N-substituted mono- and bis-clathrochelates; those with thiophosphoryl and pyridyl groups were used as N,S-donor(More)
