Prodigiosenes Conjugated to Tamoxifen and Estradiol
(Royal Society of Chemistry, 2017)
Investigations into the nucleophilic meso-substitution of F-BODIPYs and improvements to the synthesis of 4,4-difluoro-4-bora-3a,4a-diaza-s-indacene.
A series of three F-BODIPYs, with varying levels of steric crowding about the meso-position were selected to investigate nucleophilic meso-substitution of F-BODIPYs. The synthesis of one of these F-BODIPYs, 4,4-difluor ...
Microwave-accelerated synthesis of benzyl 3,5-dimethyl-pyrrole-2-carboxylate
Benzyl 3,5-dimethyl-pyrrole-2-carboxylate, a very useful pyrrole in porphyrin and dipyrromethene synthesis, can be synthesized via the Knorr-type reaction, but in low yield. Alternative routes to benzyl 3,5-dimethyl-pyrr ...
Conversion of F-BODIPYs to Cl-BODIPYs: Enhancing the Reactivity of F-BODIPYs
A new method for the synthesis of Cl-BODIPYs from F-BODIPYs is reported, merely requiring treatment of the F-BODIPY with boron trichloride. Cl-BODIPYs are exploited as synthetic intermediates generated in situ for the ...
Investigations regarding the utility of prodigiosenes to treat leukemia
Prodigiosenes, possessing a 4-methoxypyrrolyldipyrrin skeleton, are known for their anti-cancer activity. Structural modification of the C-ring resulted in a series of prodigiosenes that displayed promising activity against ...
Synthesis of dipyrrins bearing chirality adjacent to the conjugated skeleton - Electron-poor pyrroles exhibit dramatically reduced nucleophilicity
With the aim of furthering our investigations into the asymmetric complexation of dipyrrinato ligands, a dipyrrin bearing a stereogenic centre directly adjacent to the conjugated skeleton was synthesized. The electron- ...
Cl-BODIPYs: a BODIPY class enabling facile beta-substitution
Cl-BODIPYs, synthesized in high yields from dipyrrins under air- and moisture-free conditions, are extremely facile to substitution at boron compared to their corresponding F-BODIPYs, opening up a new route to BODIPYs ...
Chloride anion transport and copper-mediated DNA cleavage by C-ring functionalized prodigiosenes
A new class of prodigiosenes with stability-enhancing functionalities appended to the C-ring were found to transport chloride anions through liposomal membranes, as well as to induce copper-mediated DNA cleavage.
The first series of alkali dipyrrinato complexes
The first series of alkali dipyrrinato complexes is reported, encompassing lithium, sodium, and potassium salts of meso-unsubstituted and meso-aryl-substituted derivatives. By varying the substituents at the meso position, ...
