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 ...
Thionation Reactions of 2-Pyrrole Carboxylates
Microwave-assisted reduction of F-BODIPYs and dipyrrins to generate dipyrromethanes
(Canadian Journal of Chemistry, 2013)
The reduction of BODIPYs and dipyrrins to dipyrromethanes, via a reaction involving ethylene glycol and sodium methoxide, is reported. When benzyl alcohol is used in place of ethylene glycol, the addition of 2,4-dinitrop ...
An Improved Method for the Synthesis of F-BODIPYs from Dipyrrins and Bis(dipyrrin)s
(Organic Letters, 2012)
An improved methodology for the synthesis of F-BODIPYs from dipyrrins and bis(dipyrrin)s is reported. This strategy employs lithium salts of dipyrrins as intermediates that are then treated with only one equivalent of boron ...
Use of F-BODIPYs as a protection strategy for dipyrrins: optimization of BF2 removal.
(Journal of Organic Chemistry, 2012)
We recently reported the first general method for the deprotection of 4,4-difluoro-4-bora-3a,4a-diaza-s-indacenes (F-BODIPYs) involving a microwave-assisted procedure for the removal of the BF2 moiety, and liberation of ...
Synthesis and Antimalarial Activity of Prodigiosenes
(Organic and Biomolecular Chemistry, 2014)
Several analogues of the natural compound prodigiosin with modified A- and C-rings were synthesised as were some of their tin, cobalt, boron and zinc complexes. The antimalarial activity of these prodigiosenes was evaluated ...
