The interaction of native calf thymus DNA (CT-DNA) with isatin was studied at physiological pH by spectrophotometric, spectrofluorometric, competition experiment, circular dichroism, and viscometric techniques. No red shift and isobestic points are observed in UV absorption band of isatin. A strong fluorescence quenching reaction of DNA to isatin was(More)
A new series of hydrazone and bishydrazone derivatives was synthesized starting from adipic dihydrazide, oxalyl dihydrazide, 4-hydroxybenzhydrazide, 2-furancarboxylic acid hydrazide, acetohydrazide, 4-pyridinecarboxylic acid hydrazide, and isatin. The chemical structures were confirmed by means of 1H-NMR, UV, and IR spectral data and elemental analysis. The(More)
Isatin, 1H-indole-2,3-dione, is a heterocyclic compound of significant importance in medicinal chemistry. It is a synthetically versatile molecule, a precursor for a large number of pharmacologically active compounds. Isatin and its derivatives have aroused great attention in recent years due to their wide variety of biological activities, relevant to(More)
Isatin-3-isonicotinylhydrazone was synthesized and characterized. The interaction of native calf thymus DNA with isatin-3-isonicotinylhydrazone (IINH) in 10 mM Tris–HCl aqueous solutions at neutral pH 7.4 has been investigated by spectrophotometric, circular dichroism (CD), melting temperature (T m ), spectrofluorimetric, and viscometric techniques. It is(More)
The interaction between isatin-β-thiosemicarbazone (IBT) and calf thymus DNA (CT-DNA) was investigated in physiological buffer (pH 7.4) using Neutral Red (NR) dye as a spectral probe by UV-Vis absorption and fluorescence spectroscopy, as well as viscosity measurements. The IBT is stabilized by intercalation in the DNA (K [IBT -DNA] = 1.03×10(5) M(-1)), and(More)
Detection of hazardous chemical species by changing the electrical conductivity of a semiconductor matter is a proposed and applied way for decreasing their subsequent unpleasant effects. Recently, many examples of using inorganic or organic materials, polymeric, and also nano-sized species as sensors were reported in which, in some cases, those matters(More)
Interactions of Isatin and its derivatives, Isatin-3-isonicotinylhydrazone (IINH) and Isatin-β-thiosemicarbazone (IBT), with calf thymus DNA (ctDNA) have been investigated to delineate pharmaceutical-physicochemical properties using UV-Vis/fluorescence/circular dichroism (CD) spectroscopy, viscosity measurements, and multivariate chemometrics. IINH and IBT(More)
