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)
The human tachykinin NK-2 (hNK-2) receptor is considered a promising target for relevant pathologies at the respiratory, gastrointestinal and genitourinary level. With the aim of reducing the complexity of existing peptide antagonists, two series of hNK-2 receptor antagonists were designed, with the support of modelling, and synthesized. The X-ray structure(More)
The coordination properties of the ligand 2,6-bis-[[bis-(2-aminoethyl)-amino]methyl]-phenol (L) toward the zinc ion were determined by means of potentiometric measurements in aqueous solution (298.1 +/- 0.1 K, I = 0.15 mol dm(-3)). L forms mono- and dinuclear complexes with zinc; the stable dinuclear complexes are practically the only existing species using(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)
A novel diamine (N,N,N',N'-tetramethyletilendiamine) adduct of zinc bis(2-thenoyl-trifluoroacetonate) has been synthesized in a single-step reaction. Single-crystal X-ray diffraction studies of Zn(tta)(2).tmeda provide evidence of a mononuclear structure with a six-coordinated zinc ion. The thermal behavior of this adduct points to mass-transport properties(More)
As part of a systematic study on the synthesis and binding properties of a series of cyclophane ester hosts, the crystal structures of the cyclodimeric propylene-1,3-phenylenediacetate (C26H28O8) and of its di-n-butyltin dichloride complex (C26H26O8) SnCl2(C4H9)2 2 have been determined by X-ray analyses. The crystals of the free macrocycle are triclinic,(More)
The synthesis and characterization of two new macrocyclic ligands, the bis-macrocyclic compound 2,6-bis(1,4,13-triaza-7,10-dioxacyclopentadec-1-ylmethyl)phenol (L) and 38-methoxy-1,4,13,16,19,28-hexaaza-7,10,22,25-tetraoxatricyclo[,36)]octatriconta-32,34,Delta(36,38)-triene (L1) are reported. Equilibrium studies of basicity and coordination(More)
The synthesis and characterization of the new tetraazamacrocycle L, bearing two 1,1'-bis(2-phenol) groups as side-arms, is reported. The basicity behavior and the binding properties of L toward alkali metal ions were determined by means of potentiometric measurements in ethanol/water 50:50 (v/v) solution (298.1+/-0.1 K, I=0.15 mol dm(-3)). The anionic(More)
