Improving the bioactivity of Zn(II)-curcumin based complexes.


New Zn(II)-curcumin based heteroleptic complexes (1-5) have been synthesized and fully characterized, with the aim to improve the bioactivity of the precursor derivative [(bpy-9)Zn(curc)Cl] (A), a potentially intercalating antitumor agent recently reported. Some structural changes have been made starting from the reference complex A, in order to introduce… (More)
