Aerobically stable and substitutionally labile α-diimine rhenium dicarbonyl complexes

Schindler, Kevin ; Crochet, Aurélien ; Zobi, Fabio

In: RSC Advances, 2021, vol. 11, p. 7511-7520

New synthetic routes to aerobically stable and substitutionally labile α-diimine rhenium(I) dicarbonyl complexes are described. The molecules are prepared in high yield from the cis–cis–trans-[Re(CO)2(tBu2bpy)Br2]− anion (2, where tBu2bpy is 4,4′- di-tert-butyl-2,2′-bipyridine), which can be isolated from the one electron reduction of the corresponding 17-electron complex (1)....

Slow-targeted release of a ruthenium anticancer agent from vitamin B 12 functionalized marine diatom microalgae

Delasoie, Joachim ; Rossier, Jérémie ; Haeni, Laetitia ; Rothen-Rutishauser, Barbara ; Zobi, Fabio

In: Dalton Transactions, 2018, vol. 47, no. 48, p. 17221–17232

Herein we report the synthesis of a new biomaterial designed for targeted delivery of poorly water-soluble inorganic anticancer drugs, with a focus on colorectal cancer. Diatomaceous earth microparticles derived from marine microalgae were coated with vitamin B12 (cyanocobalamin) as a tumor targeting agent and loaded with the well- known anticancer agents cisplatin, 5-fluorouracil (5-FU), and...

Cytotoxicity of Mn-based photoCORMs of ethynyl-α-diimine ligands against different cancer cell lines: The key role of CO-depleted metal fragments

Rossier, Jeremie ; Delasoie, Joachim ; Haeni, Laetitia ; Hauser, Daniel ; Rothen-Rutishauser, Barbara ; Zobi, Fabio

In: Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry, 2020, vol. 209, p. 111122

A series of tricarbonyl manganese complexes bearing 4-ethynyl-2,2′-bipyridine and 5- ethynyl-1,10-phenanthroline α-diimine ligands were synthetized, characterized and conjugated to vitamin B12, previously used as a vector for drug delivery, to take advantage of its water solubility and specificity toward cancer cells. The compounds act as photoactivatable carbon monoxide-releasing molecules...

Stereospecific hydrogenolysis of benzylic alcohols over Pd/C

Harvey, Freya M. ; Bochet, Christian G.

In: The Journal of Organic Chemistry, 2020, vol. 85, no. 11, p. 7611–7619

Hydrogenolysis of tertiary benzylic alcohols on palladium on carbon (Pd/C) generally proceeds with inversion of configuration. However, little is known about the hydrogenolysis mechanism of primary and secondary benzylic alcohols. Literature precedents suggest that these substrates may interact differently with the catalyst. To study the mechanism, we synthesized a pair of deuterated...

Tautomerism and self-association in the solution of new pinene-bipyridine and pinene-phenanthroline derivatives

Solea, Atena B. ; Cornu, Ivan ; Deneva, Vera ; Crochet, Aurélien ; Fromm, Katharina M. ; Antonov, Liudmil ; Allemann, Christophe ; Mamula, Olimpia

In: Molecules, 2020, vol. 25, no. 2, p. 298

Two novel pinene-type ligands have been synthesized and their tautomeric and self- associating behavior studied in solution and in the solid state. The first ligand, an acetylated derivative of 5,6-pinene-bipyridine, displays keto-enol tautomerism in solution. This tautomeric equilibrium was studied by NMR and UV-Vis spectroscopy in various solvents, and the results were compared with the ones...

Correlation of MLCTs of Group 7 fac-[M(CO)3]+ complexes (M = Mn, Re) with bipyridine, pyridinylpyrazine, azopyridine, and pyridin-2-ylmethanimine type ligands for rational photoCORM design

Kottelat, Emmanuel ; Lucarini, Fiorella ; Crochet, Aurélien ; Ruggi, Albert ; Zobi, Fabio

In: European Journal of Inorganic Chemistry, 2019, vol. 2019, no. 33, p. 3758–3768

A mathematical correlation of the MLCT absorption maxima of structurally related fac‐ [M(CO)3L2Br] complexes (M = Mn, Re; L2 = bidentate ligand) is obtained by the comparison of a total of 50 species bearing bipyridine, pyridinylpyrazine, azopyridine and pyridin‐2‐ylmethanimine L2 type ligands. The empirical relationship is first derived by the initial comparison of the MLCT absorption...

On the sustainability of photochemical reactions

Bochet, Christian G.

In: CHIMIA International Journal for Chemistry, 2019, vol. 73, no. 9, p. 720–723

Photochemical reactions are often presented as intrinsically environmentally friendly ('green'). This may be indeed the case, but only in particular circumstances. This short essay comments on various aspects of the greenness of photochemical reactions, both in a historical (when only mercury-based hard UV light sources were available) and a current (with the recent introduction of LED...

Local real-space view of the achiral $1T\text{\ensuremath{-}}{\mathrm{TiSe}}_{2}$ $2\times2\times2$ charge density wave

Hildebrand, Baptiste ; Jaouen, Thomas ; Mottas, Marie-Laure ; Monney, Gaël ; Barreteau, C. ; Giannini, E. ; Bowler, D. R. ; Aebi, Philipp

In: Physical Review Letters, 2018, vol. 120, no. 13, p. 136404

The transition metal dichalcogenide 1T−TiSe2-two-dimensional layered material undergoing a commensurate 2×2×2 charge density wave (CDW) transition with a weak periodic lattice distortion (PLD) below ≈200 K. Scanning tunneling microscopy (STM) combined with intentionally introduced interstitial Ti atoms allows us to go beyond the usual spatial resolution of STM and to intimately probe...
