Mebendazole (MBZ) and related anticancer benzimidazoles act binding the β-subunit of Tubulin (TU) before dimerization with α-TU with subsequent blocking microtubule formation. Laser flash photolysis (LFP) is a new tool to investigate drug-albumin interactions and to determine binding parameters such as affinity constant or population of binding sites. The(More)
The photophysical properties of S-flurbiprofen [S-2-fluoro-alpha-methyl-4-biphenylacetic acid], a nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drug, have been examined using steady-state and time-resolved spectroscopic techniques. The energy of its first singlet excited state is 99 kcal mol(-1). The fluorescence quantum yields and lifetimes (at 300 nm) have been(More)
6-Alkylidenecyclohexa-2,4-dienones (o-quinone methides II) have been generated by photolysis of 2-(2'-cycloalkenyl)phenols 1 and trapped by methanol to give the ring-opened products 2. The best results have been obtained with the cyclohexenyl derivatives 1a, 1e, and 1f. In the case of the cyclopentenyl derivative 1b, photoproduct 2b was not observed,(More)
In the present work, a systematic study on hydrogen abstraction by the excited triplet states of 4-methoxybenzophenone (1) and 4,4'-dimethoxybenzophenone (2) from 1,4-cyclohexadiene (3), 4-methylphenol (4), 1,2,3,4-tetrahydroquinoline (5), and 1-methyl-1,2,3,4-tetrahydroquinoline (6) in different media has been undertaken. Laser flash photolysis (LFP)(More)
The aqueous solutions of colchicine (COL) and analogues such as colchiceine (CEI), and N-deacetylcolchiceine (DCEI) have been studied by laser flash photolysis (LFP) with and without the presence of human serum albumin (HSA) to determine the possible interactions between the drugs and the albumin. When irradiation of these drugs was performed in aqueous(More)
The photochemical and photophysical properties of three 8-allyl-1,2,3,4-tetrahydroquinolines (1a-c) have been studied. These compounds exhibit a 2-allylaniline-like photochemical behavior, undergoing photocyclization to lilolidines (3a-c). The absorption, emission, and excitation spectra of 1a-c, employing convenient model compounds for comparison,(More)
Two rigid derivatives of o-allylaniline, namely 8-allyl-2-phenyl-1,2,3,4-tetrahydroquinoline (1b) and 7-(trans-2-cinnamyl)-2-methylindoline (1c), have been chosen as suitable systems to study the potential stereoselectivity of the photocyclization process. Photolysis of 1b leads to a mixture of diastereomeric lilolidines 4 (trans/cis), while 1cproduces a(More)
