Synthesis of heteroleptic pyrrolide/bipyridyl complexes of ruthenium(II)
The synthesis and characterization of the first heteroleptic pyrrolide/2,2'-bipyridyl complexes of ruthenium(II) are reported. Pyrroles substituted at the 2-position with X = O functionality react with Ru(bipy)(2)Cl-2.2H(2)O ...
Chiral molecules containing the pyrrole framework
This review summarizes strategies by which chiral pyrroles, both simple and complex, have been prepared: strategies include formation of the pyrrolic ring using starting materials appended with chirality, as well as 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 and characterisation of the unsubstituted dipyrrin and 4,4-dichloro-4-bora-3a,4a-diaza-s-indacene: improved synthesis and functionalisation of the simplest BODIPY framework
An improved and scalable synthesis of the unsubstituted 4,4-difluoro-4-bora-3a,4a-diaza-s-indacene framework facilitates access to the previously unreported parent dipyrrin HCl salt, as well as 4,4-dichloro-4-bora-3a,4a- ...
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 ...
Synthesis of natural products containing the pyrrolic ring
This review provides an overview of the synthetic chemistry that has been utilised to prepare natural products containing a pyrrolic ring.
