2011_32/2011Structural Studies and Cytotoxicity of Trimethyl(ferrocenylmethyl)ammonium Iodide Encapsulated in β-Cyclodextrin (Eur. J. Inorg. Chem. 32/2011)

The cover picture shows the structural model of an inclusion complex isolated after co-dissolution of β-cyclodextrin and trimethyl(ferrocenylmethyl)ammonium iodide in ethanol/water. A combination of crystallography and theoretical calculations showed that β-cyclodextrin molecules form dimers stacked into infinite channels that accommodate the guest cations inside. The pure guest and the inclusion compound are cytotoxic against the breast adenocarcinoma cell line MDA-MB-231 but exhibit negligible activity on the osteosarcoma MG-63 cell line. Details are discussed in the article by S. S. Braga, I. S. Gonçalves et al. on p. 4955 ff.
