Coordination chemistry of macrocyclic ligands (2009)
Journal Article
Archibald, S. J. (2009). Coordination chemistry of macrocyclic ligands. Annual Reports Section A :Inorganic Chemistry, 105, 297 - 322. https://doi.org/10.1039/b818281g

This chapter reviews the literature published during 2008 on macrocyclic coordination chemistry. Porphyrin ligands and supramolecular chemistry are not covered in this review which primarily focuses on complexes formed with transition metals and lant...

MRI contrast agent delivery using spore capsules: controlled release in blood plasma (2009)
Journal Article
Lorch, M., Thomasson, M. J., Diego-Taboada, A., Barrier, S., Atkin, S. L., Mackenzie, G., & Archibald, S. J. (2009). MRI contrast agent delivery using spore capsules: controlled release in blood plasma. Chemical communications : Chem comm / the Royal Society of Chemistry, 6442-6444. https://doi.org/10.1039/b909551a

The exine coatings of spores can be used to encapsulate drug molecules. We have demonstrated that these microcapsules can be filled with a commercial gadolinium(III) MRI contrast agent (in this proof of concept study Gd-DTPA-BMA was used) which is sl...

Synthesis and phototoxicity of polyethylene glycol (PEG) substituted metal-free and metallo-porphyrins: Effect of PEG chain length, coordinated metal, and axial ligand (2009)
Journal Article
Mewis, R. E., Savoie, H., Archibald, S. J., & Boyle, R. W. (2009). Synthesis and phototoxicity of polyethylene glycol (PEG) substituted metal-free and metallo-porphyrins: Effect of PEG chain length, coordinated metal, and axial ligand. Photodiagnosis and Photodynamic Therapy, 6(3-4), 200-206. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.pdpdt.2009.08.002

Treatment of 5,10,15,20-tetra(pentafluorophenyl) porphyrins with polyethylene glycol (PEG) halides and sodium sulfide is a mild and efficient route to water-soluble PEG substituted porphyrins. The method has been used to access a series of free-base...

CXCR4 antagonists: a new generation of configurationally restricted bis-azamacrocyclic compounds (2009)
Journal Article
Khan, A., Nicholson, G., McRobbie, G., Greenman, J., Pannecouque, C., Daelemans, D., …Archibald, S. J. (2009). CXCR4 antagonists: a new generation of configurationally restricted bis-azamacrocyclic compounds. Antiviral research, 82(2), A59-A60. https://doi.org/10.1016/j.antiviral.2009.02.141

AMD3100 is a bis-azamacrocyclic compound that has been demonstrated to be a highly effective antagonist of the CXCR4 chemokine receptor. The two azamacrocyclic rings have been shown to interact with aspartate residues on the receptor via hydrogen bon...

Binding Optimization through Coordination Chemistry: CXCR4 Chemokine Receptor Antagonists from Ultrarigid Metal Complexes (2009)
Journal Article
Khan, A., Nicholson, G., McRobbie, G., Pannecouque, C., De Clercq, E., Ullom, R., …Greenman, J. (2009). Binding Optimization through Coordination Chemistry: CXCR4 Chemokine Receptor Antagonists from Ultrarigid Metal Complexes. Journal of the American Chemical Society, 131(10), 3416-3417. https://doi.org/10.1021/ja807921k

A new copper(II) containing bis-macrocyclic CXCR4 chemokine receptor antagonist is shown to have improved binding properties to the receptor protein in comparison to the drug AMD3100 (Plerixafor, Mozobil). The interaction of the metallodrug has been... Read More about Binding Optimization through Coordination Chemistry: CXCR4 Chemokine Receptor Antagonists from Ultrarigid Metal Complexes.

Reductive Amination-A convenient method for generating diverse, mono-functionalised 5,10,15,20-tetraphenyl porphyrins (2009)
Journal Article
Welch, C., Archibald, S. J., & Boyle, R. (2009). Reductive Amination-A convenient method for generating diverse, mono-functionalised 5,10,15,20-tetraphenyl porphyrins. SYNTHESIS, 2009(4), 551-556. https://doi.org/10.1055/s-0028-1083335

Formylation followed by reductive amination of 5,10,15,20-tetraphenyl porphyrin (TPP) is shown to be a versatile synthetic procedure for monosubstitution of the porphyrin core re-giospecifically at one β-position. A diverse range of substituents can... Read More about Reductive Amination-A convenient method for generating diverse, mono-functionalised 5,10,15,20-tetraphenyl porphyrins.
