Novel synthesis of quinoline-5,8-dione analogues

Teitgen, Alicen M. 21 July 2012 (has links)
The chemistry of quinonline-5,8-dione as a functional group is a developing field because of its various biological aspects. Lavendamycin and streptonigrin are known antibiotic, antitumor agents containing the quinolone-5,8-dione functional group believed to provide their antitumor properties. Most cancer cells show an elevated level of NQO1 enzyme which activates lavendamycin to act as an antitumor agent. The research goal is to explore different synthetic methods and reactions to produce novel quinolone-5,8-dione analogues with unique structural features while keeping the selective cytotoxicity. Lavendamycin contains a β-carboline and streptonigrin has a substituted pyridine connected to the 2-position of the quinolone-5,8-dione. The overall goal of this project will develop synthetic methods to create 1,2,3-triazoles and 1,2-diazoles attached to the quinoline moiety from azides and diazonium salts, respectively. In order to accomplish this, 8-hydroxyquinoline undergoes through a four step synthesis to install an azide at the two position of the quinoline ring. 8-Hydroxyquinoline was oxidized to produce 8-hydroxyquinoline-N-oxide, converted into 8-acetoxy-2-hydroxyquinoline with acetic anhydride, reacted with POCl3 to produce 2-chloro-8-hydroxyquinoline, and treated with sodium azide to form 2-azido-8-hydroxyquinoline. However it was found that the product cyclized to yield 8-hydroxy-tetrazole[1,5-a]quinoline. In the quinoline-5,8-dione synthesis, 7-amidoquinoline-5,8-dione is prepared through a three step synthesis. 8-Hydroxquinoline was nitrated to form 8-hydroxy-5,7-dinitroquinoline, hydrogenated/acylated to give 5,7-diacetamido-8-acetoxyquinoline, and oxidized to yield 7-acetamidoquinoline-5,8-dione. In order to reach the end of this project, the four step tetrazole and the three step quinoline-5,8-dione syntheses required merging. Further research will focus on the optimization of these syntheses. / Synthesis of 8-hydroxy-tetrazole [1,5-a] quinoline -- Synthesis of 7-amino-quinoline-5,8-dione -- Novel synthesis of quinoline-5,8-dione analogues. / Department of Chemistry

New platinum and palladium complexes: their anticancer application

Louw, Marissa January 2010 (has links)
Novel non-leaving groups were employed in this dissertation to synthesize platinum complexes which can assist in the understanding or improvement of anticancer action. Emphasis was placed on (NS)-chelate and (NN)-chelate platinum complexes. Bidentate (NS)-donor ligands were used as non-leaving ligands in the synthesis of platinum(II) complexes with iodo, chloro, bromo and oxalato groups as leaving groups. These complexes were synthesized and studied since many questions regarding the interaction of sulfur-donors and platinum still exist. These relate to thermodynamic and kinetic factors and their influence on anticancer action. In this dissertation the properties of novel platinum(II) complexes of a bidentate ligand having an aromatic nitrogen-donor atom in combination with a thioethereal sulfur atom capable of forming a five-membered ring with platinum(II) were studied. The general structure of the (NS)-ligands used was 2-((alkylthio)methyl)pyridine. Alkyl groups used were methyl, ethyl, propyl, benzyl and phenyl. Amine complexes of platinum have been studied extensively in the past. However, attention was given to novel aspects of substituted pyridine and imidazole ligands and their corresponding complexes. Amongst these are 2-(2-methylaminoethyl)pyridine, 1-methyl-2-methylaminoethylimidazole and 1-methyl-2-methylaminobenzylimidazole. The leaving groups included chloro, bromo and oxalato. Mononitroplatinum(IV) complexes were prepared using novel synthetic methods. Selected platinum(II) amine complexes were used as starting materials for this synthesis. Some of these compounds exhibit promising anticancer behaviour. (Trans-(R,R)-1,2-diaminocyclohexane)(oxalato)(mononitrochloro)platinum(IV) is a particularly good anticancer agent and has been patented internationally. All these complexes were characterized using mass spectrometry, chromatography, thermogravimetric analysis, kinetic aspects such as ligand exchange rates and finally their anticancer action against three different cancer cell lines was evaluated via cytotoxicity assays. Some of the compounds exhibited particularly good anticancer potential.

Advances in platinum-amine chemotherapeutic agents : their chemistry and applicationc

Jaganath, Yatish January 2009 (has links)
The research conducted in this study focussed on advancing the knowledge database of diamineplatinum complexes on two frontiers: 1) the development of novel anticancer complexes, and 2) improvements in their synthetic chemistry. Novel square-planar dichloro and oxalato platinum(II) complexes were synthesized as potential anticancer agents in accordance with a comprehensive set of factors identified as being significant in optimizing such action. The nonleaving ligands consisted of asymmetric chelating chiral diamines of the form 1- (1-R-imidazol-2yl)(R')methanamine (R representing methyl, butyl and R' methyl, phenyl). The complexes were characterized by a host of spectral, thermal and crystallographic techniques. In addition, the stabilities of the complexes were monitored in aqueous and saline solutions. Cytotoxicity screening on three cultured cancer cell lines (MCF-7, HeLa and HT29) indicated the compounds, present as their respective racemates, to have rather modest activities relative to cisplatin; with complexes having the smallest substituents, R,R' = methyl, being most active. In recognition of the limitations of traditional silver-based syntheses of oxalatoplatinum(II) complexes, innovative non-silver methods were developed using the well known cancer drug, oxaliplatin, (trans-R,R-1,2- diaminocyclohexane)oxalatoplatinum(II), as a prototype. These involved direct ligand exchange reactions of the dichloro precursor, (trans-R,R-1,2- diaminocyclohexane)dichloroplatinum(II), with tetrabutylammonium oxalate in essentially non-aqueous solvents. A 90:10 mixture of isoamyl alcohol (3-methyl- 1-butanol):water, proved to be a promising solvent, enabling the recovery of pure oxaliplatin (~98 percent) after 9 hours at 88 °C in yields of up to 86 percent. In light of the perceived unique mode of anticancer action available to mononitroplatinum(IV) complexes (i.e. their STAT3-binding potential), octahedral diamineoxalatoplatinum(IV) complexes containing axially-coordinated nitro and halo co-ligands were synthesized and extensively characterized. Electrochemical studies revealed trends in reduction potential which could be correlated to structural / chemical traits of the coordinated diamine and axial ligands. The similarities of the determined cytotoxicities of the platinum(IV) compounds and their respective platinum(II) analogues, implicated reduction as a means of activation of the platinum(IV) complexes.
