Synthesis of 5-acetyl-2-arylamino-4-methylthiazole thiosemicarbazones under microwave irradiation and their in vitro anticancer activity
The thiosemicarbazone (TSC) is considered as one of the most important scaffolds and is embedded in many biologically active compounds. Brockman et al. first showed that 2-formylpyridine TSC possesses antileukemic activity in mice. Since then, various aliphatic, aromatic and heteroaromatic carbaldehyde TSCs were synthesised and many of them exhibited a broad range of biological activities.
Plasticity in nest composition in relation to nest-site characteristics in the Red-breasted Flycatcher (Ficedula parva)
The nest is an important part of reproduction of many altricial bird species and nest construction is varied, for example in site selection, shape and construction material. In this paper, the authors studied nest composition in the Red-breasted Flycatcher (Ficedula parva), breeding in natural holes in primeval stands of the Białowieża Forest.
Mechanism of covalent adsorption of benzenesulfonamide onto COOH– and COCl– functionalised carbon nanotubes
The use of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in drug delivery is a new, rapidly developing field. Different systems such as polymers, dendrimers, and liposomes have been used for drug delivery, but carbon nanotubes provide more effective structures due to their high drug loading capacities and good cell penetration qualities.
X makes nine: a distant ice giant in the solar system
Ever since Pluto lost its status as one of the main planets of our solar system and was demoted to just another frozen denizen of the Kuiper belt, we have had to make do with eight, albeit in a pleasing symmetry, with four rocky ones this side of the asteroid belt and four giants on the far side.
