Twenty-eight new 12N-benzenesulfonyl matrinic butane and halogenated 12N-sulfonyl matrinic butane/ethane derivatives were designed, synthesized and evaluated for their anti-coxsakievirus activities against CVB3 taking compound 1 as the lead. SAR analysis indicated the introduction of a fluoro atom on the 1'-position might be helpful for keeping potency. Among them, compound 8a exhibited potential activities against all CVBs with IC50 ranging from 0.69 to 5.14 μM, suggesting a broad-spectrum anti-coxsackievirus B feature...

The cinchona alkaloid dimer (DHQD)2PHAL has been shown to be a broadly applicable catalyst for asymmetric halogenations. However, this catalyst does not have to be dimeric and a class of monomeric quinidine and quinine-derived catalysts was prepared which shows often superior selectivities in bromolactonisations of terminal alkynoic acids. Mechanistic investigations show that these organocatalysts act as host molecules that can bind carboxylic acid-based substrates as guests with substantial binding constants...

This study seeks to investigate the relationship between the structural modification and bioactivity of a series of tribenzyltin complexes with different ligands and substitutions. Complexation with the N,N-diisopropylcarbamothioylsulfanylacetate or isonicotinate ligands enhanced the anticancer properties of tribenzyltin compounds via delayed cancer cell-cycle progression, caspase-dependent apoptosis induction, and significant reduction in cell motility, migration and invasion. Halogenation of the benzyl ring improved the anticancer effects of the tribenzyltin compounds with the N,N-diisopropylcarbamothioylsulfanylacetate ligand...

As a result of our efforts to identify bioactive agents from marine algae, we have isolated and identified one new halogenated monoterpene 1 [(-)-(5E,7Z)-348-trichloro-7-dichloromethyl-3-methyl-157-octatriene] in addition to three known compounds (2, 3 and 4) from the red alga Plocamium cartilagineum collected by hand from the eastern coast of South Africa. Compound 1 was found to be active as a cytotoxic agent in human lung cancer (NCI-H460) and mouse neuro-2a cell lines (IC50 4 μg/mL). Two of these compounds (3 and 4) were found to have cytotoxic activity in other cell line assays, especially against human leukaemia and human colon cancers (IC50 1...

The increased use of surgery as a treatment or as an alternative for improvement means that we have a larger number of patients in the operating theatre, including those who suffer from rare diseases. Poland Syndrome is a rare congenital disease associated with muscle development. These patients may have a broad spectrum of abnormalities, which include thoracic anomalies, which can alter the ventilatory management at the level of the airway; the possible onset of malignant hyperthermia. This leads the anaesthetist to take certain preventive measures...

Based on the chemotype of canthin-4-one alkaloids with moderate antimicrobial activity, a collection of variously substituted canthin-4-ones and desaza analogs were synthesized. Key steps in the syntheses were regioselective halogenations of (desaza) canthin-4-one, followed by Pd-catalyzed cross-coupling reactions. The in vitro screening for antimicrobial activity revealed that two 5-substituted canthin-4-ones (3-pyridyl, 2-bromophenyl) exhibit significant activity against Streptococcus entericus, coupled with high selectivity and the lack of cytotoxicity against mammalian cells...

In the last few decades, ionic liquids (ILs) have gained significant attention as lubricants and lubricant additives due to their polar nature, low vapour pressure and tunable physicochemical properties. In this work, quantum chemistry calculations and atomistic Molecular Dynamics (MD) simulations were employed to predict thermal degradation mechanisms of a potential lubricating agent - the tributyloctylphosphonium bis(oxalato)borate ([P4,4,4,8][BOB]) IL. It was found that the onset of decomposition of the studied IL coincides with a cleavage of the B-O bonds in the [BOB](-) anion...

In nearly every total synthesis, silylating agents are employed in synthetic steps to protect sensitive functional groups. A Pt-catalyzed hydrosilylation of various unsaturated substrates to prepare novel symmetrical and unsymmetrical disilazanes is described. The developed synthetic methodology is widely applicable and tolerates all manner of functional groups (e.g., amines, ethers, esters, halogens, silanes, etc.). To demonstrate the value of the described method, mono-substituted 1,1,3,3-tetramethyldisilazanes were further selectively converted to completely new unsymmetrical derivatives...

Nanoscale Ni/Fe was applied to biologically treated effluent of chemical dyestuff wastewater. The removal rates of absorbable organic halogens (AOX) and chroma were investigated at different Ni loadings (0-5%), initial wastewater pH (4.1-10.0), Ni/Fe dosage (1-5 g x L(-1)) and reaction time (0.5-96 h). The results showed that the removal rates of AOX and chroma firstly increased and then decreased with the increase of the Ni loading, while continuously increased with the decrease of the initial wastewater pH and the increase of Ni/Fe dosage...

Cyclopentenediones (CPDs) are compounds with a variety of applications ranging from the preparation of functional polymers to the development of antimicrobial agents, suggesting the potential use of CPDs as novel bioactive compounds or drugs. For this reason, a detailed characterization of CPDs and the development of robust analytical methods for their trace analysis are being sought. Here we focused on the design and synthesis of a library of novelized benzylidene CPD derivatives that were consequently characterized by ultra-high performance liquid chromatography (UHPLC) on-line connected with tandem mass spectrometry (MS/MS)...

With the increasing prevalence of fungal infections coupled with emerging drug resistance, there is an urgent need for new and effective antifungal agents. Here we report the antifungal activities of 19 diverse halogenated quinoline (HQ) small molecules against Candida albicans and Cryptococcus neoformans. Four HQ analogues inhibited C. albicans growth with a minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) of 100 nM, whilst 16 analogues effectively inhibited C. neoformans at MICs of 50-780 nM. Remarkably, two HQ analogues eradicated mature C...
