As scientists in recent decades have discovered, selenium is an important trace element in life. The element is now known to play an important role in biology as an enzymatic antioxidant. In this case, it sits at the active site and converts biological hydrogen peroxides to water. Mimicking this reaction, chemists have synthesized several organoselenium… (More)
A diselenide-based BODIPY probe was prepared; it was found to be sensitive and selective for superoxide in giving [-Se(O)Se(O)-] oxidation. Probing was reversible through the use of biothiols; (77)Se NMR and other types of spectroscopy were employed. Practical medicinal utility was demonstrated in MCF-7/ADR cancer cells.
A novel reversible zinc(II) chemosensing ensemble (2·Zn(2+)) allows for selective "turn-on" fluorescence sensing of ATP and PPi in aqueous media (detection limits: 2.4 and 1.0 μM, respectively) giving selective binding patterns: ATP ∼ PPi > ADP ≫ AMP > monophosphates ≈ remaining ions tested. The conjugated hydrazone [C═N-NH-R] resists hydrolysis… (More)
A new probe-chelator PET dyad was synthesised, which can be used to detect Fe(3+)via fluorescence enhancement to discriminate between Fe(2+) and Fe(3+)via Fenton chemistry involving hydrogen peroxide. This is the first BODIPY which works as a 2 : 1 multiplexer for Fe(3+), Fe(2+) and H2O2.
Annulated BODIPY chalcogenide (Se, Te) systems were synthesized from their respective bis(o-formylphenyl)dichalcogenide intermediates. The annulated BODIPY selenide product was confirmed by X-ray diffraction. The red-shifted telluride version was found to be sensitive and selective for hypochlorite detection, reversible upon treatment with biothiols.
In the structure of the title compound, [HgCl2(C12H20N2)], the Hg(II) atom has a distorted tetra-hedral coordination sphere defined by two tertiary amine N-atom donors, as well as two Cl(-) anions [the dihedral angle between the N-Hg-N and Cl-Hg-Cl planes is 82.80 (9)°]. The five-membered chelate ring adopts an envelope conformation, with puckering… (More)
A novel Schiff base probe exhibited strong 'turn-ON' fluorescence for Cu(2+) at 345 nm, Al(3+) at 445 nm, and Cu(+) at 360 nm in the presence of Al(3+) in organic solvent (acetonitrile), which allowed for construction of molecular logic gates 'INH' and '1:2 DEMULTIPLEXING.' H(+) generated from Al(3+) contributed greatly to Cu(+) chemosensing based on a… (More)
The reaction of meta-phenylene-bis(1-methyl-1H-imidazole-2(3H)-selone) with [Pd2(μ-Cl)2(2-C6H4CH2NMe2)2] in dry benzene and glacial acetic acid resulted in the formation of an unsymmetrical 5,6-membered C,C,Se-Pd(II) pincer complex through C-H bond activation and extrusion of one selenium. This is the first example of a C,C,Se-Pd(II) complex wherein the… (More)
In the structure of the title compound, C(17)H(17)BrN(2)O, the central phenyl and imidazol-2-one rings are coplanar (dihedral angle between planes of 0.73 (11)°). The angles subtended by the substituents on the N atoms of the imidazol-2-one ring range from 109.71 (14)° to 128.53 (15) due to steric hindrance of these substituents with the phenyl H atoms. The… (More)
A new BODIPY system displaying an intramolecular π-π-interaction was synthesized and studied. When the selenium center was oxidized, the substituted phenyl group undergoes π-π stacking with one side of the BODIPY core. The oxidized form showed, not only a down-field shift in the NMR peak, but also splitting due to geometrical changes that arise when going… (More)
