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,...

Supramolecular agent–simulant correlations for the luminescence based detection of V-series chemical warfare agents with trivalent lanthanide complexes

Dennison, Genevieve H. ; Bochet, Christian G. ; Curty, Christophe ; Ducry, Julien ; Nielsen, David J. ; Sambrook, Mark R. ; Zaugg, Andreas ; Johnston, Martin R.

In: European Journal of Inorganic Chemistry, 2016, p. -

Solution spectroscopic investigations into the interactions of eight potential bidentate V-series organophosphorus chemical warfare agent (OP CWA) simulants with [Eu(phen)₂(NO₃)₃]·2H₂O demonstrated that the chemical and structural composition of the secondary binding site within the simulant was of paramount importance. Only simulants containing both phosphoryl/phosphonyl and...

Synthesis, characterization and exploration of the catalytic, supramolecular and biological applications of dinuclear complexes

Johnpeter, Justin Paul Raj ; Therrien, Bruno (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2013.

The work presented in this thesis involves the synthesis and characterization of dinuclear ruthenium, rhodium and iridium complexes. The catalytic, supramolecular and biological applications of these dinuclear complexes will be discussed. In the first part, the synthesis of sawhorse-type diruthenium tetracarbonyl complexes and their catalytic applications in the supercritical carbon dioxide...
