Mesoporous Santa Barbara Amorphous-16 (SBA-16) silica was synthesized via facile sol-gel method and functionalized using a silanizing agent, 3-amino-propyl-triethoxysilane, cyanuric chloride and dopamine. SBA-16/dopamine was characterized for the structure and morphology by x-ray diffraction, transmission electron microscopy, thermogravimetric analysis, and Fourier-transform infrared spectroscopy. Silica was amorphous in nature. Analysis of SBA-16 silica by Brunauer-Emmett-Teller (BET) method indicated that the material exhibits type IV isotherm to support its mesoporous structure. Mesoporous SBA-16/dopamine was used as a nanocarrier and the physicochemical changes and release rate of the antifatal model drug, atorvastatin loaded into nano-porous cavities of silica via in vivo application was investigated. Adult rats received a high-fat diet (HFD) for eight weeks. During the last four weeks, the HFD groups received normal saline, atorvastatin (5 mg/kg bw), nanocomposite (10 mg/kg bw), and atorvastatin along with the nanocomposite. Body weight, lipid profile, catalase, superoxide dismutase, alanine aminotransferase, aspartate aminotransferase, lipid peroxidation, and liver histology were assessed. Administration of nanocomposite, and atorvastatin, alone, improved the HFD induced dyslipidemia in HFD-rats. The nanocomposites, and atorvastatin, significantly lowered body weight and malondialdehyde content, and improved the antioxidant enzymes of rats. Histopathological studies confirmed the lipid-lowering efficacy of the nanocomposites. The group receiving SBA-16 silica nanoparticles alone showed more improvement in hyperlipidemia and oxidant status than the group treated with SBA-16 silica together with atorvastatin. Further studies will be necessary to investigate the interaction between SBA-16 silica nanoparticles with the statin and non-statin drugs.


Electrochemical and quantum chemical studies on mitomycin and adriamycin
Ozalp-Yaman, S; Önal, Ahmet Muhtar; Turker, L (Elsevier BV, 2003-06-25)
In-situ spectroelectrochemical redox behaviour of two prominent chemotherapeutic agents, mitomycin and adriamycin were studied at constant potential. AM 1 (UHF) type quantum chemical calculations on the neutral as well as radical anion and cation forms of mitomycin and adriamycin were performed.
Novel Pt(II) complexes containing pyrrole oxime, synthesis, characterization and DNA binding studies
Altunöz Erdoğan, Deniz; Ozalp-Yaman, Seniz (Elsevier BV, 2014-05-05)
Since the discovery of anticancer activity and subsequent clinical success of cisplatin (cis-[PtCl2(NH3)(2)]), platinum-based compounds have since been widely synthesized and studied as potential chemotherapeutic agents. In this sense, three novel nuclease active Pt(II) complexes with general formula; [Pt(NH3)CI(L)] (1), [Pt(L)(2)] (2), and K[PtCl2(L)] (3) in which L is 1-H-pyrrole-2-carbaldehyde oxime were synthesized. Characterization of complexes was performed by elemental analysis, FT-IR, H-1 NMR and ma...
Enantioselective synthesis of both enantiomers of 2-amino-2-(2-furyl)ethan-1-ol as a flexible building block for the preparation of serine and azasugars
Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı; Sesenoglu, O; Aksoy-Cam, H; Kaya, H; Aydogan, K (Elsevier BV, 2003-05-16)
The selective conversion of 1-(2-furyl)-2-hydroxyethan-1-one and ethyl 2-(2-furyl)-2-oxo acetate into (E)- and (Z)-oximes and oxime ethers followed by oxazaborolidine-catalyzed enantioselective reduction using different amino alcohols furnished both enantiomers of the important chiral building block 2-amino-2-(2-furyl)ethan-1-ol with an ee of up to 96%.

Some phenolic biphenyl compounds have been synthesised via the annulation reactions of 4-methoxy-2- pyrone with various active methyl compounds.
Amination/annulation of chlorobutenones with chiral amine compounds: synthesis of 1,2,4-trisubstituted pyrroles
Demir, Ayhan Sıtkı; Igdir, AC; Gunay, NB (Elsevier BV, 2005-10-03)
A series of 1,2,4-trisubstituted pyrroles have been synthesized in 83-96% yields on treatment of chiral primary amines, amino alcohols and esters of alpha-amino acids with different chlorobutenones in benzene-triethylamine. The conversions proceed without racemization.
