Daphnetoxin is a daphnane type orthoester diterpene found exclusively in plants of the family Thymelaeaceae while daphnoretin, a bis-coumarin derivative that is the major constituent of the bark of some plants of this family, can also be found in Leguminosae and Rutaceae. These two compounds are recognized to have different biological effects, including a(More)
Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), also known as coordination polymers, are formed by the self-assembly of metallic centres and bridging organic linkers. In this critical review, we review the key advances in the field and discuss the relationship between the nature and structure of specifically designed organic linkers and the properties of the products.(More)
After three decades of intense and fundamental research on metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), is there anything left to say or to explain? The synthesis and properties of MOFs have already been comprehensively described elsewhere. It is time, however, to prove the nature of their true usability: technological applications based on these extended materials(More)
Fentanyl and remifentanil are potent opioid widely used in routine anesthesia procedures. This study evaluates and compares the effects of fentanyl/remifentanil in isolated brain mitochondria bioenergetic status. Fentanyl and remifentanil in clinical concentrations does not interfere with rat brain isolated mitochondria. Do not withstand, fentanyl(More)
The title compound, C(12)H(18)N(6)O(6), was synthesized via nucleophilic substitution by reacting 2,4,6-trichloro-1,3,5-triazine with glycine methyl ester hydro-chloride in reflux (dried toluene) under anhydrous atmosphere. Individual mol-ecules self-assemble via strong N-H⋯O hydrogen bonds into supra-molecular double tapes running parallel to the [010](More)
Phosphonate- and yttrium-based metal-organic frameworks (MOFs), formulated as [Y(H5btp)]·5.5H2O (1), [Y(H5btp)]·2.5H2O (2), (H3O)[Y2(H5btp)(H4btp)]·H2O (3), and [Y(H5btp)]·H2O·0.5(MeOH) (4), were prepared using a "green" microwave-assisted synthesis methodology which promoted the self-assembly of the tetraphosphonic organic linker(More)
A rapid, mild and high-yield microwave synthesis of 1D isotypical [Ln(H4bmt)(H5bmt)(H2O)2]·3H2O coordination polymers is presented. The La(3+)-based material is highly active as a heterogeneous catalyst in the methanolysis of styrene oxide at nearly room temperature. Eu(3+)- and Tb(3+)-doped materials are very effective UV-to-visible light converters.
The title compound, C(48)H(20)F(19)N(4)O(3)P, prepared by the nucleophilic attack of triethyl phosphite on one of the 4-fluoro atoms of 5,10,15,20-tetrakis(pentafluorophenyl)porphyrin, contains a single molecule in the asymmetric unit. The porphyrin unit is almost planar [largest non-H atom deviation = 0.174 (6) Å], and has the planes of the neighbouring(More)
The asymmetric unit of the title compound, C(9)H(9)Br(3), is composed of a single molecule. Two bromo substituents are located on one side of the plane of the aromatic ring and the third is on the opposite side, with the molecular unit exhibiting an approximate noncrystallographic C(s) point group. The crystal structure is rich in Br...Br, CH(2)···Br and(More)
