N-(ferrocenylmethyl amino acid) fluorinated benzene-carboxamide derivatives have been synthesised and biologically evaluated on the estrogen positive MCF-7 breast cancer cell line. N-(ferrocenylmethyl-L-alanine)-3,4,5-trifluorobenzene-carboxamide 5h was the most active compound with an IC50 value of 2.84 μM.
- Zirconium complexes bearing bis(phenoxy-imine) ligands with bulky o-bis(aryl)methyl-substituted aniline groups: synthesis, characterization and ethylene polymerization behavior
Aike Li, Haiyan Ma and Jiling Huang
Article first published online: 8 MAY 2013 | DOI: 10.1002/aoc.2984
Bis(phenoxy-imine) zirconium complexes bearing bulky o-bis(aryl)methyl- substituted aryl groups on the aniline moiety have been synthesized, characterized and tested as catalyst precursors for ethylene polymerization. The introduction of a excessively bulky o-bis(aryl)methyl substituents adjacent to the the imine-N produces low molecular weights aluminium terminated polyethylenes (Al-PEs) (Mv 1.6–10.1 × 103) due to the enhanced rate of chain transfer to alkylaluminum groups during the polymerization.
