Carbosilane metallodendrimers based on copper (II) complexes: Synthesis, EPR characterization and anticancer activity

Carbosilane metallodendrimers based on copper (II) complexes: Synthesis, EPR characterization and anticancer activity
A series of new organometallic carbosilane dendrimers functionalized with Copper(II) complex on the surface were synthesized and characterized as potential anticancer agents. These metallodendrimers were synthesized through the reaction of dendritic ligands containing N,N- and N,O- donor atoms able to act as chelating agents with CuCl2 as metallic ion precursor. The structural characterization of these complexes was addressed through the use of different analytical and spectroscopical techniques. Particularly, an electron paramagnetic resonance study was performed to corroborate the coordination properties of these dendritic ligands. A preliminary study was carried out to establish the cytotoxicity of the new synthesized compounds in human prostate (PC3) and human cervical (HeLa) cancer cell lines in order to evaluate their potential as anticancer agents and compare their activity with other copper or analogous ruthenium metallodendrimers.
