The toxicity of platinum(II) ion could be significantly modified by coordination with some organic compounds. In our study, the cytotoxicity and the influence of platinum(II) complexes, such as cisplatin, cis-[PtCl(2)(NH(3))(2)], [PtCl(2)(SMC)] and [PtCl(2)(DMSO)(2)] (where SMC is S-methyl-l-cysteine and DMSO is dimethyl sulphoxide) on spontaneous motility(More)
A serie of novel square pyramidal copper(ii) complexes [Cu(L)2H2O] (3a-d) with O,O-bidentate ligands [L = ethyl-2-hydroxy-4-aryl-4-oxo-2-butenoate; aryl = 3-methoxyphenyl-2a, (E)-2-phenylvinyl-2b, (E)-2-(4'-hydroxy-3'-methoxyphenyl)vinyl-2c, 3-nitrophenyl-2d, 2-thienyl-2e] were synthesized and characterized by spectral (UV-Vis, IR, ESI-MS and EPR),(More)
The mechanism of phenylselenoetherification of pent-4-en-1-ol using some bases (pyridine, triethylamine, quinoline, 2,2'-bipyridine) as catalyst was examined through studies of kinetics of the cyclization, by UV-VIS spectrophotometry. It was demonstrated that the intramolecular cyclization is facilitated in the presence of bases caused by the hydrogen bond(More)
The mechanism of phenylselenoetherification of (Z)- and (E)-hex-4-en-1-ols using some bases (triethylamine, pyridine, quinoline, 2,2'-bipyridine) as catalysts and some solvents [tetrahydrofuran (THF) and CCl4] as reaction media was examined through studies of kinetics of the cyclization by UV-vis spectrophotometry. It was demonstrated that the(More)
PURPOSE To determine the antioxidant and antiproliferative influence of 2-(phenylselenomethyl)tetrahydrofuran (1a) and 2-(phenylselenomethyl)tetrahydropyran (2a) on colon cancer cell line HCT-116 and breast cancer cell line MDA-MB-231. METHODS Cell viability was monitored in a dose-dependent manner using MTT assay. The concentration of superoxide anion(More)
A small library of novel 2-oxo-1,2,3,4-tetrahydropyrimidines was synthesized via a one-pot multicomponent Biginelli reaction. Copper complex $$(\hbox {PhNH}_{3})_{2}\hbox {CuCl}_{4,}$$ ( PhNH 3 ) 2 CuCl 4 , which was used for the first time as a homogeneous and heterogeneous catalyst, makes this a facile and efficient reaction at room temperature. All the(More)
The reactions of Pt(II) complexes, cis-[Pt(NH3)2Cl2], [Pt(terpy)Cl]+, [Pt(terpy)(S-cys)]2+, and [Pt(terpy)(N7-guo)]2+, where terpy=2,2':6',2''-terpyridine, S-cys=L-cysteine, and N7-guo=guanosine, with some biologically relevant ligands such as guanosine-5'-monophosphate (5'-GMP), L-cysteine, glutathione (GSH) and some strong sulfur-containing nucleophiles(More)
Two novel Pd(II) complexes with 2-(phenylselanylmethyl)oxolane and 2-(phenylselanylmethyl)oxane as ligands were synthesized. The crystal and molecular structure of the complexes has been determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction. It turned out for both complexes that the two ligands are coordinated to Pd via Se atoms in a trans-fashion and the other(More)
