Recent Advances on Octahedral Polypyridyl Ruthenium(II) Complexes as Antimicrobial Agents
This review will highlight the recent developments in octahedral polypyridyl ruthenium(III) complexes that have exhibited significant antimicrobial activities and will discuss the relationship between the chemical structure and biological process of r Ruthenium complexes, in both bacterial and fungal cells.
The Antibacterial Activity of Metal Complexes Containing 1,10- phenanthroline: Potential as Alternative Therapeutics in the Era of Antibiotic Resistance.
In this review, what is currently known about the antibacterial capability of metal-phen complexes and their mechanisms of action is summarized.
Co(II)-coordination polymer: treatment and nursing values on trachoma by inhibiting the Chlamydia trachomatis survival
Abstract In the current study, based on the bifunctional ligand 1,1′-di(4-carbonylphenyl)-2,2′-biimidazoline (H2L), a new Co(II) coordination polymer (CP) with the chemical formula of {[Co(L)]·H2O} n
DNA‐Targeted Metallodrugs: An Untapped Source of Artificial Gene Editing Technology
The aim is to provide readers with an insight on the rational design of metal complexes with DNA recognition properties and an understanding of how the sequence‐specific targeting of these interactions can be achieved for gene engineering applications.
Evaluation of metal-based antimicrobial compounds for the treatment of bacterial pathogens
The antibacterial activity, mode of action, and potential for systemic use of a number of metal-based antibacterial complexes are discussed and the current limitations of these compounds are highlighted to determine if metal- based agents are a potential solution for the treatment of bacterial infections, especially those resistant to conventional antibiotics.
Metallohelices emulate the properties of short cationic α-helical peptides
There is a growing body of evidence demonstrating that these supramolecular architectures exhibit bioactivity that emulates that of the natural systems, and the context of synthetic advances in the area is reviewed.
Nitroimidazole-Based Ruthenium(II) Complexes: Playing with Structural Parameters to Design Photostable and Light-Responsive Antibacterial Agents.
This study may provide a fundamental knowledge on the use of Ru(II)-polypyridyl complexes to incorporate and/or photorelease biologically relevant nitroimidazole derivatives in the design of a novel class of antimicrobials.


Preparation of the Optical Forms of Tris-Acetylacetone Cobalt III
A typical non-electrolytic complex salt without salt-forming groups is sought to demonstrate the general applicability of the principle that the activities of enantiomeric ions could be changed to a different extent by the addition of an electrolyte containing an optically active anion or cation.
The modern theory of valency
NEARLY 100 years ago, in 1852, it was stated for the first time, by E. Frankland, that atoms have a definite combining power, which determines the formulas of compounds. Then in 1858 Archibald S.
