Abstract A series of tributyltin(IV) complexes based on 2/4-[( E )-2-(aryl)-1-diazenyl]benzoate ligands was synthesized, wherein the position of the carboxylate and aryl substituents (methyl, tert -butyl and hydroxyl) varies. The complexes, Bu 3 SnL 1–4 H ( 1 – 4 ), have been structurally characterized by elemental analysis and IR, NMR ( 1 H, 13 C, and 119 Sn) and 119 Sn Mossbauer spectroscopy. All have a tetrahedral geometry in solution and a trigonal bipyramidal geometry in the solid-state, except for Bu 3 SnL 4 H ( 4 ) that was ascertained to have tetrahedral coordination by X-ray crystallography. Cytotoxicity studies were carried out on human tumor cell lines A498 (renal cancer), EVSA-T (mammary cancer), H226 (non-small-cell lung cancer), IGROV (ovarian cancer), M19 MEL (melanoma), MCF-7 (mammary cancer) and WIDR (colon cancer). Compared to cisplatin, test compounds 1 – 4 had remarkably good activity, despite the presence of substantial steric bulk due to Sn–Bu ligands. The quantitative structure–activity relationship (QSAR) studies for the cytotoxicity of organotin(IV) benzoates, along with some reference drug molecules, is also discussed against a panel of human tumor cell lines. Molecular structures of the tributyltin(IV) complexes ( 1 – 4 ) were fully optimized using the PM6 semi-empirical method and docking studies performed with key enzymes associated with the propagation of cancer, namely ribonucleotide reductase, thymidylate synthase, thymidylate phosphorylase and topoisomerase II. The theoretical results are discussed in relation to the mechanistic role of the cytotoxic active test compounds ( 1 – 4 ).

The cytotoxicity in vitro and antitumor activity in vivo of the organotin compound tri-n-butyltin(IV)lupinylsulfide hydrogen fumarate (IST-FS 35) have been investigated. The IC50 values obtained in a panel of tumor cell lines were compared to those of the parental compound IST-FS 29 in the same cells. IST-FS 35 resulted significantly more active than IST-FS 29 with IC50 values in the range 0.16–1.8 μM. Toxicity studies in vivo, after intravenous administration of escalating concentrations of IST...

Various interaction modes between a group of six ruthenium polypyridyl complexes and DNA have been studied using a number of spectroscopic techniques. Five mononuclear species were selected with formula [Ru(tpy)L1L2](2−n)+, and one closely related dinuclear cation of formula [{Ru(apy)(tpy)}2{μ-H2N(CH2)6NH2}]4+. The ligand tpy is 2,2′:6′,2″-terpyridine and the ligand L1 is a bidentate ligand, namely, apy (2,2′-azobispyridine), 2-phenylazopyridine, or 2-phenylpyridinylmethylene amine. The ligand L...

An account is given of the development of the SHELX system of computer programs from SHELX-76 to the present day. In addition to identifying useful innovations that have come into general use through their implementation in SHELX, a critical analysis is presented of the less-successful features, missed opportunities and desirable improvements for future releases of the software. An attempt is made to understand how a program originally designed for photographic intensity data, punched cards and ...

Several modifications that have been made to the NDDO core-core interaction term and to the method of parameter optimization are described. These changes have resulted in a more complete parameter optimization, called PM6, which has, in turn, allowed 70 elements to be parameterized. The average unsigned error (AUE) between calculated and reference heats of formation for 4,492 species was 8.0 kcal mol−1. For the subset of 1,373 compounds involving only the elements H, C, N, O, F, P, S, Cl, and Br...

Abstract There is much recent evidence showing that mitochondria play a critical role in the regulation of apoptosis (programmed cell death), making them an attractive target for the design of new anticancer drugs. A variety of different strategies targeting mitochondria for cancer therapy have been described in recent literature. Several different classes of gold-based compounds (in both Au(I) and Au(III) oxidation states) have attracted interest as potential antitumour agents and there is evid...

In the next two decades, the world is expected to see around 20 million cases of cancer. Moreover, the types of cancer will vary considerably from country to other. Therefore, all efforts will be needed to face such a vast diversity of problems. With current annual sales of about $500 millions, the platinum(II) complex known as cisplatin (cis- (NH3)2PtCl2) is still one of the most effective drugs to treat testicular, ovarian, bladder and neck cancers. Since it was launched in 1978 there has been...

The aim of this review is to examine the current status of quantitative structure–activity/property relationships (QSAR/QSPR) as related to organotin chemistry. QSAR/QSPR are mathematical models that relate some measurable biological activity or physical property in a series of similar compounds to a descriptor or descriptors associated with the molecules. Descriptors used in QSAR/QSPR studies are endless, from traditional parameters to newly developed ones. They range from quantum chemical desc...

Abstract Syntheses, crystal structures and biological activities of the diphenoxo-bridged diorgano dinuclear Sn(IV) compounds [Sn(Et) 2 (HL)(H 2 O)] 2 ( 1 ) and [Sn( n -Bu) 2 (HL)(H 2 O)] 2 ( 2 ) derived from the Schiff base 2-[(2,3-dihydroxyphenyl)methylideneamino]benzenesulfonic acid trihydrate ( H 3 L·3H 2 O ) are described. The monoprotonated form (HL 2− ) of the Schiff base behaves as O,O′-bidentate ligand, chelating the metal by the two phenoxo oxygen atoms. The hexacoordinated metal centr...
