The propargyl ethers 7-chloro-(4-propargyloxy)quinoline, 1-propargyloxynaphthalene and 2-propargyloxybenzophenone react with [AuCl(PPh(3))] in the presence of KOH to give the gold(I) alkynyl complexes [Au(C[triple bond]COCH(2)Ar)(PPh(3))] in good yields. The compounds were fully characterised by spectroscopic methods and were subsequently examined for their(More)
The reaction of aqueous cis-[Pt(NH(3))(2)(H(2)O)(2)](NO(3))(2) with Na(+)HMEL(-) (H(2)MEL, meloxicam, 4-hydroxy-2-methyl-N-(5-methyl-1,3-thiazol-2-yl)-2H-1,2-benzothiazine-3-carboxamide-1,1-dioxide), and Na(+)HISO(-) (H(2)ISO, isoxicam, 4-hydroxy-2-methyl-N-(5-methylisoxazol-3-yl)-2H-1,2-benzothiazine-3-carboxamide-1,1-dioxide) at pH 7 produced(More)
Ferula species are reputed in folk medicine for the treatment of a variety of disorders. There have been sporadic reports on the chemopreventive and chemosensitizing activities of some terpenoid coumarin derivatives from the genus Ferula. The present study investigated the cytotoxic activity of 11 phytochemicals (conferone, farnesiferol A, acantrifoside E,(More)
It is widely accepted that platinum(IV) complexes act as prodrugs and have to be activated by reduction to the respective platinum(II) analogs. Recently it could be shown that introduction of lipophilic carboxylato ligands in the axial position leads to diaminedichloridoplatinum(IV) compounds with exceptionally high cytotoxicity. With the aim of improving(More)
Platinum-based drugs play a crucial role in the fight against cancer. Oxaliplatin, which is used in the treatment of colorectal carcinoma, was the last platinum-based agent to be approved worldwide. However, the efficiency of the therapy is limited for example by a low accumulation of the drug in cancer cells. Cell-penetrating peptides (CPPs) are known to(More)
A series of bis(carboxylato)dichlorido(ethane-1,2-diamine)platinum(IV) compounds with IC(50) values ranging between 142 μM and 18 nM was investigated with respect to their lipophilicity (by the shake flask method as well as microemulsion electrokinetic chromatography), reduction potential, as well as their cellular accumulation in cancer cells in vitro. In(More)
Octahedrally configured diaminedichloro- and diamineoxalatoplatinum(IV) complexes with axial hydroxo ligands were carboxylated with succinic or glutaric anhydride. The free, uncoordinated carboxylic acid groups were further derivatized with amines and alcohols to the respective amides and esters and characterized in detail by elemental analysis, mass(More)
Two platinum(IV) complexes (OC-6-33)-dichlorido(ethane-1,2-diamine)dihydroxidoplatinum(IV) and (OC-6-33)-diammine(dichlorido)dihydroxidoplatinum(IV) were carboxylated using demethylcantharidin as carboxylation agent. The complexes were characterized by elemental analysis, mass spectrometry, multinuclear (1H, 13C, 15N, and 195Pt) NMR spectroscopy, and, in(More)
The antineoplastic properties of gallium are well documented. Owing to their robust accumulation of gallium, melanoma cells should be amenable to gallium-based anticancer drugs. With the aim of improving the disappointingly low activity of inorganic gallium salts, we have developed the orally bioavailable gallium complex KP46(More)
(OC-6-33)-Dichlorido(ethane-1,2-diamine)dihydroxidoplatinum(IV) (1) was carboxylated using succinic- or 3-methylglutaric anhydride. The resulting bis(carboxylato)platinum(IV) complexes display free, uncoordinated carboxylic acid groups which were further derivatized with primary aliphatic alcohols. The complexes were characterized in detail by elemental(More)
