A new series of 11-[(aminoalkyl)carbonyl] derivatives of 6,11-dihydrodibenzo[c,f][1,2,5]thiadiazepine 5,5-dioxide (10-39) were synthesized and evaluated for potential antidepressant activity in the apomorphine-induced hypothermia (Apo 16) test. Effects on reserpine-induced hypothermia and toxicity for the most potent antagonists of Apo 16 hypothermia were(More)
Solutions containing Zn(II) and Cu(II) complexes with [15]aneN(3)O(2) rapidly adsorb atmospheric CO(2) to give {[ZnL](3)(&mgr;(3)-CO(3))}.(ClO(4))(4) (2) and {[CuL](3)(&mgr;(3)-CO(3))}.(ClO(4))(4) (4) complexes. The crystal structures of both complexes have been solved (for 2, space group R3c, a, b = 22.300(5) Å, c = 17.980(8) Å, V = 7743(4) Å(3), Z = 6, R(More)
Preliminary studies of the elementary steps involved in the reaction of a chiral methyl carbonyl bioxazoline Pd(II) complex with aromatic olefins and CO have allowed development of a new enantioselective catalytic carbonylation process, leading to γ-ketoester derivatives with high yield and good enantiomeric excess. The intermediate palladacycle complexes(More)
The synthesis and characterization of the novel 24,29-dimethyl-6,7,15,16-tetraoxotetracyclo-[19.5.5.0(5,8).0(14,17)]-1,4,9,13,18,21,24,29-octaazaenatriaconta-Delta(5,8),Delta(14,17)-diene (L) are reported. Molecule L incorporates two squaramide functions in a overstructured chain connecting two opposite nitrogen atoms of the Me(2)[12]aneN(4) polyaza(More)
The binding properties of the two ligands (L) N,N'-bis[(3-hydroxy-4-pyron-2-yl)methyl]-N,N'-dimethylethylendiamine (Malten) and 4,10-bis[(3-hydroxy-4-pyron-2-yl)methyl]-1,7-dimethyl-1,4,7,10-tetraazacyclododecane (Maltonis) towards M(II) transition metal ions (M(II) = Cu(II) for Malten and Co(II) for Maltonis, respectively), were investigated in aqueous(More)
A giant-size polyamine macrocycle L, composed of four 1,4,8,11-tetraazacyclotetradecane (cyclam) units linked by 1,3-dimethylenbenzyl spacers, strongly interacts in aqueous solution with four pH indicators (bromocresol purple (H2BCP), phenol red (H2PR), phenolphthalein (H2PP) and fluorescein (H2F)) in their anionic forms. Besides 1 : 1 complexes, L also(More)
In the title chiral sulfinic acid ester, C18H26O4S, the cyclo-hexane ring of the menthyl fragment adopts a chair conformation. The mol-ecular shape is defined by the dihedral angle of 47.87 (8)° between the mean planes of the cyclo-hexane and benzene rings. In the crystal, mol-ecules related by the screw axis are connected into chains along [010] by weak(More)
The enantiomers of 1-methyl-3-(10H-phenothiazine-10-ylmethyl)-1-azoniabicyclo[2 ,2,2]octane iodide (1) were prepared by chiral chromatographic resolution of the precursor mequitazine (2). The (+)-(S)-enantiomer 1b is 10-fold more potent than (-)-(R)-enantiomer 1a as a histamine antagonist, while the two enantiomers show the same antimuscarinic activity in(More)
We synthesized and characterized the ligand N,N'-bis[(2,2'-dihydroxybiphen-3-yl)methyl]-N,N'-dimethylethylenediamine (L), which contains two biphenol moieties linked as side arms to an N,N'-dimethylethylenediamine scaffold. The ligand is highly soluble in a 50/50 (v/v) water/ethanol mixture and, in its deprotonated form H-2L(2-), is able to coordinate(More)
