Polymorphism of a porous hydrogen bond assisted ionic organic framework

Dániel Vajk Horváth, Tamás Holczbauer,* Laura Bereczki, Roberta Palkó, Nóra Veronika May, Tibor Soós and Petra Bombicz  CrystEngComm (2018), accepted for publication The polymorphism of a porous, non-covalently bonded ionic organic framework is reported. The framework is constructed by hydrogen bonding and anion⋯π interactions. In a solvatomorphic lattice, pyridine takes Read More …

Expanding the Pillararene Chemistry: Synthesis and Application of a 10 + 1 Functionalized Pillar[5]arene

Márton Bojtár, András Simon, Petra Bombicz, and István Bitter Organic Letters (2017)  19 (17), 4528–4531 A novel functionality was introduced in the pillararene family by the Claisen rearrangement of monoallyl pillar[5]arene. This new key derivative can lead to the formation of a 10 + 1 functionalized derivative, a useful scaffold for further Read More …

The way from isostructurality to polymorphy. Where are the borders? The role of supramolecular interactions and crystal symmetries.

Petra Bombicz Crystallography Reviews, 23(2), 118-151, 2017. ABSTRACT To produce substances with required physico-chemical properties demands the recognition of structural features of materials. It includes polymorphism and isostructurality which are strongly related with intermolecular interactions and crystal symmetries. Fine tuning of structural properties can be achieved by the application of Read More …

Exploring the boundaries of direct detection and characterization of labile isomers – a case study of copper(II)–dipeptide systems

Eszter Tóth, Nóra V. May, Antal Rockenbauer, Gábor Peintler and Béla Gyurcsik Dalton Trans., 2017,46, 8157-8166 ABSTRACT The investigation of the linkage isomers of biologically essential and kinetically labile metal complexes in aqueous solutions poses a challenge, as these microspecies cannot be separately studied. Therefore, derivatives are commonly used to initially Read More …

Structural, analytical and DSC references to resolution of 2-Methoxy-2-phenylacetic Acid with Chiral 1-Cyclohexylethylamines through Gas-Antisolvent Precipitation

Amit D. Zodge, Petra Bombicz, Edit Székely, György Pokol, János Madarász Thermochimica Acta, 648, 23-31, (2017) ABSTRACT The system of intermolecular interactions is very similar in the solid state of the chiral and racemic α-methoxyphenylacetic acids (α-MPAA) indicated by both Differential Scanning Calorimetry (DSC)and FTIR-spectroscopy, and even proved by single Read More …

A novel 1,3,5-triaminocyclohexane-based tripodal ligand forms a unique tetra(pyrazolate)-bridged tricopper(II) core: solution equilibrium, structure and catecholase activity

Attila Szorcsik, Ferenc Matyuska, Attila Bényei, Nóra V. Nagy, Róbert K. Szilágyi and Tamás Gajda* Dalton Trans., 2016, 45, 14998-15012   ABSTRACT Copper(II) complexes of a polydentate tripodal ligand L × 3HCl (L = N,N’,N’’-tris(5-pyrazolylmethyl)-cis, cis-1,3,5-triaminocyclohexane) were characterized in both solution and solid states. Combined evaluation of potentiometric, UV-VIS, and EPR Read More …

Strain-Driven Direct Cross-Aldol and -Ketol Reactions of Four-Membered Heterocyclic Ketones

 Zoltán Dobi, Tamás Holczbauer, and Tibor Soós* Org. Lett., 2015, 17 (11), pp 2634–2637 Abstract Owing to the ring strain and α-heteroatom effect, the four-membered heterocyclic ketones can undergo direct cross-aldol and -ketol reactions without the need for preformed enol or “enolate-like” intermediates. Besides the organocatalyzed cross-ketol addition onto their highly active carbonyl group, their Read More …

Vanadium(IV/V) complexes of Triapine and related thiosemicarbazones: Synthesis, solution equilibrium and bioactivity

Kowol CR, Nagy NV, Jakusch T, Roller A, Heffeter P, Keppler BK, Enyedy ÉA Journal of Inorganic Biochemistry 152 (2015) 62–73 Abstract The stoichiometry and thermodynamic stability of vanadium(IV/V) complexes of Triapine and two related α(N)-heterocyclic thiosemicarbazones (TSCs) with potential antitumor activity have been determined by pH-potentiometry, EPR and 51V NMR Read More …
