Two silver-cyclodimethylsiloxane cation salts [AgD6][Al] ([Al] = [Al(ORF)4](1) or [FAl(OR(F))3](2), R(F) = C(CF3)3, D = Me2SiO) were prepared by the reactions of Ag[Al] with D6 in SO2(l). For a comparison the [Ag(18-crown-6)]2[SbF6]2(3) salt was prepared by the reaction of Ag[SbF6] and 18-crown-6 in SO2(l). The compounds were characterized by IR,(More)
A series of novel cyclic analogues of curcumin were synthesized and analyzed for in vitro cytostatic activity. Condensation of 2-acetylcycloalkanones with a variety of aromatic aldehydes resulted in the formation of 2-arylidene-6-(3-arylacryoyl)-cycloalkanone derivatives. A number of these analogues were found to have significant anticancer activity against(More)
The title compound, C(6)H(18)P(3)(+) x CF(3)SO(3)(-), crystallizes in two polymorphic forms in the space groups P2(1)/c and Pnma. In the orthorhombic form, the two crystallographically independent molecular units lie across a crystallographic mirror plane. The compound lacks traditional hydrogen-bond donors and, hence, is held together by weak C-H...O and(More)
The synthesis of 5-substituted 6,6a-dihydroisoindolo[2,1-a]quinolin-11(5H)-ones via [4 + 2] imino-Diels-Alder cyclization from N-aryl-3-hydroxyisoindolinones and N-vinyl lactams under Lewis acid-catalysed anhydrous conditions is reported. Reactions of N-(2-substituted-aryl)-3-hydroxyisoindolinones with N-vinylpyrrolidone under identical conditions resulted(More)
[reaction: see text] The effectiveness of simple sulfinyl and sulfonyl groups as electron-withdrawing protecting groups for pyrroles has been analyzed using (13)C NMR spectroscopy and confirmed by consideration of X-ray crystal structures. Additionally, the 2,4-dinitrobenzenesulfinyl and sulfonyl groups are shown to be effective electron-withdrawing(More)
A second polymorph of the hydrochloride salt of the recreational drug ethylone, C12H16NO3(+)·Cl(-), is reported [systematic name: (±)-2-ethylammonio-1-(3,4-methylenedioxyphenyl)propane-1-one chloride]. This polymorph, denoted form (A), appears in crystallizations performed above 308 K. The originally reported form (B) [Wood et al. (2015). Acta Cryst. C71,(More)
The development of green, selective, and efficient catalysts, which can aerobically oxidize a variety of alcohols to their corresponding aldehydes and ketones, is of both economic and environmental significance. We report here the synthesis of a novel aerobic oxidation catalyst, a zeolite-confined nanometer-sized RuO(2) (RuO(2)-FAU), by a one-step(More)
The conformations of the dipeptide t-Boc-Pro-DAla-OH and the tripeptide t-Boc-Pro-DAla-Ala-OH have been determined in the crystalline state by X-ray diffraction and in solution by CD, n.m.r. and i.r. techniques. The unit cell of the dipeptide crystal contains two independent molecules connected by intermolecular hydrogen bonds. The urethane-proline peptide(More)
A number of dibenzothiazepinones and dibenzoxazepinones have been designed, synthesized and evaluated as calcium antagonists. Molecular geometries of these dibenzotricyclic calcium antagonists have been studied using X-ray crystallography, molecular modeling and two-dimensional NMR spectroscopy. X-Ray diffraction reveals dibenzothiazepinone 1 and(More)
Reduction of the radical-cation [*NSSNC-CNSNS][AsF(6)] with ferrocene affords the novel biradical *NSNSC-CNSSN* containing both 1,2,3,5- and 1,3,2,4-isomeric dithiadiazolyl rings. Biradicals form centrosymmetric dimers with pi(*)-pi(*) interactions between different isomeric rings. Biradical *NSNSC-CNSSN* is diamagnetic in the solid state (C = 0.00035, TIP(More)
