Hydrogen-bonded metalla-assemblies

Zhang, Fan ; Therrien, Bruno (Dir.)

Thèse de doctorat : Université de Neuchâtel, 2018.

Hydrogen bonds are the most utilized non-covalent interactions in biological systems, due to their directionality, stability, reversibility and diversity. The weak strength of hydrogen-bond can be modified by combining several hydrogen bonds in the same unit, like in the melamine∙cyanuric/barbituric acid rosette-type system. Arene ruthenium metalla-assemblies have showed a great biological...

Self-assembly of Ag(I) helicates with new enantiopure 5,6-Chiragen type ligands

Mamula, Olimpia ; Bark, Thomas ; Quinodoz, Boris ; Stoeckli-Evans, Helen ; Zelewsky, Alexvon

In: Inorganica Chimica Acta, 2018, vol. 475, p. 200–206

Two new chiral bis-bidentate, C2-symmetrical ligands belonging to the Chiragen family have been synthesised and characterised. They are designed for polynuclear self-assemblies since the two (−)-5,6-pinenebipyridines units are connected by bridges whose length and rigidity avoids the coordination of the bipyridine moieties to the same metal centre. The ligand L1 with a 1,4-dimethylene...

Synthesis, Molecular Structure, and Anticancer Activity of Cationic Arene Ruthenium Metallarectangles

Mattsson, Johan ; Govindaswamy, Padavattan ; Renfrew, Anna K. ; Dyson, Paul J. ; Štěpnička, Petr ; Süss-Fink, Georg ; Therrien, Bruno

In: Organometallics, 2009, vol. 28, no. 15, p. 4350–4357

The cytotoxicities of a new series of cationic metallarectangles have been established in the A2780 ovarian cancer cell line. Interestingly, the large rectangles incorporating 1,2-bis(4-pyridyl)ethylene linkers are ca. 5 times more cytotoxic (IC50 ≤ 6 μM) than the 4,4-bipyridine analogues (IC50 ≥ 30 μM), thus suggesting a correlation between cytotoxicity and the size...

Template-Directed Synthesis of Hexanuclear Arene Ruthenium Complexes with Trigonal-Prismatic Architecture Based on 2,4,6-Tris(3-pyridyl)triazine Ligands

Freudenreich, Julien ; Furrer, Julien ; Süss-Fink, Georg ; Therrien, Bruno

In: Organometallics, 2011, vol. 30, no. 5, p. 942–951

Cationic arene ruthenium metalla-prisms of the general formula [Ru6(p-cymene)6(3-tpt)2(OO∩OO)3]6+ (3-tpt = 2,4,6-tris(3-pyridyl)-1,3,5-triazine; OO∩OO = 5,8-dioxido-1,4-naphthoquinonato [1]6+ or 6,11-dioxido-5,12-naphthacenedionato [2]6+) have been obtained from the corresponding...

Mesomorphic Metallo-Dendrimers Based on the Metal−Metal Bonded Ru2(CO)4 Sawhorse Unit

Frein, Stéphane ; Auzias, Mathieu ; Sondenecker, Aline ; Vieille-Petit, Ludovic ; Guintchin, Boris ; Maringa, Natacha ; Süss-Fink, Georg ; Barberá, Joaquín ; Deschenaux, Robert

In: Chemistry of Materials, 2008, vol. 20, no. 4, p. 1340-1343

Dinuclear ruthenium complexes containing the stable metal−metal bonded Ru2(CO)4 sawhorse unit with two dendritic carboxylato bridges have been synthesized and characterized. All complexes Ru2(CO)4(O2CR)2L2 (R = R1, R2, R3) containing cyanobiphenyl-based poly(arylester) dendrons of first...

Enhancement of Cytotoxicity by Combining Pyrenyl-Dendrimers and Arene Ruthenium Metallacages

Pitto-Barry, Anaïs ; Zava, Olivier ; Dyson, Paul J ; Deschenaux, Robert ; Therrien, Bruno

In: Inorganic Chemistry, 2012, vol. 51, no. 13, p. 7119-7124

Three generations of pyrenyl bis-MPA dendrimers with two different end-groups, acetonide (pyrGn) or alcohol (pyrGn-OH) (n = 1–3), were synthesized, and the pyrenyl group of the dendritic molecules was encapsulated in the arene ruthenium metallacages, [Ru6(p-cymene) 6 (OO∩OO)3(tpt)2]6+ (OO∩OO =...

NMR spectroscopy and DFT calculations of a self-assembled arene ruthenium rectangle obtained from a combination of coordination and hydrogen bonds

Appavoo, Divambal ; Raja, Nandhagopal ; Deschenaux, Robert ; Therrien, Bruno ; Carnevale, Diego

In: Dalton Transactions, 2016, vol. 45, no. 4, p. 1410-1421

The hydrogen-bonded arene ruthenium metalla-rectangle, [(p-cymene) 2Ru2(OOnOO)(UPy)2]24+ , obtained from 1-(4-oxo-6-undecyl-1,4-dihydropyrimidin-2-yl)-3-(pyridin-4- ylmethyl)urea (UPy) and the dinuclear arene ruthenium clip (p-cymene) 2Ru2(OOnOO)Cl2 (OOnOO = 2,5-dioxido-1,4- benzoquinonato), is investigated by...
