Eight new ruthenium and five new osmium p-cymene half-sandwich complexes have been synthesized, characterized and evaluated for antimalarial activity. All complexes contain ligands that are based on a 4-chloroquinoline framework related to the antimalarial drug chloroquine. Ligands HL(1-8) are salicylaldimine derivatives, where HL(1) =(More)
The reduction of the dithiolene ligand, qpdt2-, a mimic of the biological molybdopterin cofactor, and the corresponding (η5-cyclopentadienyl)cobalt(iii) complex [(qpdt)CoIIICp] was studied. It was found that in both cases an unprecedented ring scission reaction took place in acidic medium. All new reaction products have been spectroscopically and(More)
An original synthesis of the fused pyranoquinoxaline dithiolene ligand qpdt(2-) is discussed in detail. The most intriguing step is the introduction of the dithiolene moiety by Pd-catalyzed carbon-sulfur coupling. The corresponding Mo(IV)O complex (Bu4N)2 [MoO(qpdt)2] (2) underwent reversible protonation in a strongly acidic medium and remained stable under(More)
A molybdenum-dithiolene-oxo complex was prepared as a model of some active sites of Mo/W-dependent enzymes. The ligand, a quinoxaline-pyran-fused dithiolene, mimics molybdopterin present in these active sites. For the first time, this type of complex was shown to be active as a catalyst for the photoreduction of protons with excellent turnover numbers (500)(More)
Cobalt dithiolene complexes are a new class of H2-evolving catalysts. Here we describe the preparation, the structure and the catalytic activity of an original cobalt complex using a bioinspired ligand, a quinoxaline-pyran-fused dithiolene derivative (qpdt(2-)) that mimics the molybdopterin cofactor present in the active sites of formate dehydrogenases.(More)
The synthesis and characterization of twenty new pentamethylcyclopentadienyl-rhodium and iridium complexes containing N^N and N^O-chelating chloroquine analogue ligands are described. The in vitro antimalarial activity of the new ligands as well as the complexes was evaluated against the chloroquine sensitive (CQS) NF54 and the chloroquine resistant (CQR)(More)
Bis(dithiolene)tungsten complexes, W(VI)O2 (L = dithiolene)2 and W(IV)O (L = dithiolene)2, which mimic the active site of formate dehydrogenases, have been characterized by cyclic voltammetry and controlled potential electrolysis in acetonitrile. They are shown to be able to catalyze the electroreduction of protons into hydrogen in acidic organic media,(More)
To facilitate production of functional enzymes and to study their mechanisms, especially in the complex cases of coenzyme-dependent systems, activation of an inactive apoenzyme preparation with a catalytically competent coenzyme intermediate is an attractive strategy. This is illustrated with the simple chemical synthesis of a flavin-methylene iminium(More)
