Arene Ruthenium Cages: Boxes Full of Surprises

Therrien, Bruno

In: European Journal of Inorganic Chemistry, 2009, vol. 17, p. 2445-2453

Self-assembly of polypyridyl ligands with dinuclear arene ruthenium building blocks bridged by chlorido, oxalato or benzoquinonato ligands has allowed the construction of a wide range of cationic metalla complexes possessing different architectures and functionalities: (i) metalla-rectangles showing host-guest possibilities and allowing intramolecular template-controlled photochemical [2 + 2]...

Increasing the size of metalla-assemblies to target the EPR-effect of tumors and solid cancers

Mannancherril, Vidya ; Therrien, Bruno (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2019.

Cancer, a malignant disease, is one of the leading causes of mortality and morbidity among humans. However, selective targeting of cancerous tissue remains challenging. The enhanced permeability and retention effect (EPR-effect), a naturally occurring phenomenon in solid cancerous tissue, is a suitable treatment pathway to selectively target cancerous tissues, whereas healthy tissue remains...

Olefin Cross-Metathesis: a Versatile Synthetic Reaction for the Design of Janus Liquid Crystals

Trinh, Thi Minh Nguyet ; Nguyen, Thanh Tung ; Kopp, Cyril ; Pieper, Pauline ; Russo, Virginie ; Heinrich, Benoît ; Donnio, Bertrand ; Nguyen, Thi Le Anh ; Deschenaux, Robert

In: European Journal of Organic Chemistry, 2015, vol. 2015, no. 27, p. 6005-6010

The olefin cross-metathesis reaction using the second-generation Grubbs catalyst was employed to prepare non-symmetrical thermotropic liquid crystals from various mesomorphic or nonmesomorphic type I and type II olefinic constructs, including linear, chiral, dendritic and ferrocenyl olefins. Smectic C, smectic A and nematic phases, as well as chiral smectic A and chiral nematic phases were...

Preparation of Pillar[5]arene-Based [2]Rotaxanes from Acyl Chlorides and Amines

Milev, Radian ; Lopez-Pacheco, Alberto ; Nierengarten, Iwona ; Trinh, Thi Minh Nguyet ; Holler, Michel ; Deschenaux, Robert ; Nierengarten, Jean-François

In: European Journal of Organic Chemistry, 2015, vol. 2015, no. 3, p. 479-485

Pillar[5]arene-based [2]rotaxanes have been prepared from the reactions of diacyl chloride reagents with various amine stoppers. The yields of the [2]rotaxanes are sensitive to the reaction conditions (solvent and stoichiometry) as well as to structural and electronic factors. In particular, the nature of the starting amine reagent has a dramatic influence on the yields of [2]rotaxanes; thus,...
