The self-assembly process is a natural phenomenon with the ability to organize biological systems. Its development by chemists as a synthetic process allowed the formation of esthetical structures as well as highly complex supramolecular systems with remarkable biological functions. Since 1990, metal directed self-assembly strategy has largely contributed to the design and synthesis of discrete...

Metallic ruthenium nanoparticles derived from arene ruthenium complexes : synthesis, characterization and applications

Khan, Farooq-Ahmad ; Süss-Fink, Georg (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2012 ; 2247.

The present work deals with the preparation of ruthenium nanoparticles using an organometallic approach. In the first part, the synthesis of ruthenium nanoparticles stabilized by mesogenic isonicotinic ester ligands is presented. We have been interested in the use of long-chain isonicotinic esters as lipohilic components in order to increase the anticancer activity of arene ruthenium...

Arene Ruthenium Assemblies for Biological Applications : From Carceplex to Host-Guest Metalla-Cages

Since the development of supramolecular chemistry in the 1980s more and more discrete molecular objects have been synthesised. In this research area metals play a key role. Indeed, the coordination-driven self-assembly allows a directional-bonding approach that organises the different building blocks into supramolecular objects according to the coordination modes of the transition metal....
