Electron paramagnetic resonance spectroscopic studies of the electron transfer reaction of Hantzsch ester and a pyrylium salt

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_message]Sebők-Nagy K, Rózsár D, L. G. Puskás LG, Balázs Á and Páli T[/vc_message][vc_column_text] Abstract The oxidation of Hantzsch ester by a pyrylium cation takes place via electron–proton–electron transfer. The reaction was investigated with EPR spectroscopy using TEMPO and DMPO for inhibition and spin trapping, respectively, of the radicals appearing during the reaction. The present in-depth EPR study

Synthesis and Cytoprotective Characterization of 8-Hydroxyquinoline Betti Products

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_message]Kanizsai I, Madácsi R, Hackler L Jr, Gyuris M, Szebeni GJ, Huzián O, Puskás LG.[/vc_message][vc_column_text] Abstract The 8-hydroxyquinoline pharmacophore scaffold has been shown to possess a range of activities as metal chelation, enzyme inhibition, cytotoxicity, and cytoprotection. Based on our previous findings we set out to optimize the scaffold for cytoprotective activity for its potential

Decoding DNA labels by melting curve analysis using real-time PCR

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_message]Balog JA, Fehér LZ, Puskás LG.[/vc_message][vc_column_text] Abstract Synthetic DNA has been used as an authentication code for a diverse number of applications. However, existing decoding approaches are based on either DNA sequencing or the determination of DNA length variations. Here, we present a simple alternative protocol for labeling different objects using a small number of

Facile synthesis of 1H-imidazo[1,2-b]pyrazoles via a sequential one-pot synthetic approach

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_message]Demjén A, Gyuris M, Wölfling J, Puskás LG, Kanizsai I.[/vc_message][vc_column_text] Abstract 5-Aminopyrazole-4-carbonitrile and ethyl 5-aminopyrazole-4-carboxylate, as potential trifunctional building blocks are introduced in a facile, chemo- and regioselective multicomponent assembly of imidazo[1,2-b]pyrazoles via the Groebke–Blackburn–Bienaymé reaction (GBB reaction). Besides the synthetic elaboration of a green-compatible isocyanide-based access in three-component mode, we describe an operationally simple,
