Synthesis and in vitro cytotoxicity of novel dinuclear platinum(II) complexes containing a chiral tetradentate ligand
A series of novel dinuclear platinum(II) complexes with a chiral tetradentate ligand, (1R,1′R,2R,2′R)-N1,N1′-(1,2-phenylenebis(methylene))dicyclohexane-1,2-diamine (HL), and mono-carboxylic acid derivatives as ligands have been designed, synthesized, and characterized. In vitro cytotoxicity evaluation of synthesized complexes against human HepG-2, A549, HCT-116, and MCF-7 cancer cell lines has been conducted by MTT assays. All compounds showed antitumor activity to HepG-2 and HCT-116 cell lines. Compound L2 exhibited better cytotoxicity than that of carboplatin against HepG-2 and A549 cell lines and also showed comparable activity against HCT-116 cell line.

Keeping up-to-date with research can feel impossible, with papers being published faster than you'll ever be able to read them. That's where Researcher comes in: we're simplifying discovery and making important discussions happen. With over 19,000 sources, including peer-reviewed journals, preprints, blogs, universities, podcasts and Live events across 10 research areas, you'll never miss what's important to you. It's like social media, but better. Oh, and we should mention - it's free.
Researcher displays publicly available abstracts and doesn’t host any full article content. If the content is open access, we will direct clicks from the abstracts to the publisher website and display the PDF copy on our platform. Clicks to view the full text will be directed to the publisher website, where only users with subscriptions or access through their institution are able to view the full article.
