Abstract/Description:
This research is part of a long-term project aimed at elucidating important structural features, of both ligands and metals, that are needed to produce effective anti-cancer agents. The specific goal is the synthesis of organotin polymers containing amino acids, in this case the diamino acid diglycine. The desired materials were synthesized with percent yields ranging from 32-99%. The products were synthesized employing the interfacial polymerization technique. The polymers were then characterized utilizing the following physical characterization techniques: light scattering photometry (LS), Infrared spectroscopy (IR), nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy (NMR), and matrix assisted laser desorption mass spectroscopy (MALDI). Physical characterization showed evidence of formation of desired adducts in addition to data that was consistent with the formation of materials containing multiple repeat units. The materials were then analyzed for biological activity. The synthesized materials displayed the ability to inhibit tested cancer cell lines.
