Synthesis, characterisation, in vitro DNA binding properties and antioxidant activities of Ln(III) complexes with chromone-3-carbaldehyde-(2´-hydroxy) benzoyl hydrazone

Posted on 5. January, 2016.

Numerous biological experiments have demonstrated that DNA is the primary intracellular target of anticancer drugs due to the intercalation between small molecules and DNA, which can cause DNA damage in cancer cells, blocking their division and resulting in cell death. So to develop new and efficient DNA intercalators to be used as anticancer drugs is an urgent and important task.

Chiral cyclic synthetic intermediates from readily available monoterpenoids

Posted on 4. January, 2016.

The availability of some simple chiral monoterpenoids has led to their use in various ways in synthesis. A previous article reviewed the acyclic synthons that were easily accessible from citronellol 1, linalool 2 and limonene 3. This free review article is concerned with the cyclic chiral synthons that can be readily obtained from these monoterpenoids as well as car-3-ene 4, α-pinene 5 and camphor 7. The article will group these chiral synthons in terms of the size of the ring containing the chiral fragment.
