  • A combined NMR and DFT study of conformational dynamics in lanthanide complexes of macrocyclic DOTA-like ligands 

    Blahut, Jan; Hermann, Petr; Tošner, Zdeněk; Platas-Iglesias, Carlos (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2017-09-06)
    [Abstract] The solution dynamics of the Eu(III) complexes of H4dota (1,4,7,10-tetraazacyclododecane-1,4,7,10-tetracarboxylic acid) and H5do3ap (1,4,7,10-tetraazacyclododecane-4,7,10-tris(carboxymethyl)-1-methylphosphonic ...
  • Selective growth inhibition of cancer cells with doxorubicin-loaded CB[7]-modified iron-oxide nanoparticles 

    Benyettou, Farah; Fahs, H.; Elkharrag, R.; Bilbeisi, Rana A.; Asmaa, Bouakaz; Rezgui, Rachid; Motte, Laurence; Magzoub, Mazin; Brandel, J.; Olsen, John-Carl; Piano, F.; Gunsalus, K. C.; Platas-Iglesias, Carlos; Trabolsi, Ali (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2017-05-03)
    [Abstract] Cucurbit[7]uril-modified iron-oxide nanoparticles (CB[7]NPs) were loaded with doxorubicin hydrochloride (Dox) and tested as a drug delivery system. Dox was found to interact with the carbonyl-rich rims of the ...
  • Synthesis and characterisation of bismacrocyclic DO3A-amide derivatives – an approach towards metal-responsive PARACEST agents 

    Cakic, Nevenka; Verbić, Tatjana Ž.; Jelić, Ratomir M.; Platas-Iglesias, Carlos; Angelovski, Goran (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016-02-26)
    [Abstract] Three new bismacrocyclic Ln3+ chelates consisting of triamide derivatives of cyclen with glycine, methyl and tert-butyl substituents (L1–3, respectively) linked to an acyclic EGTA-derived calcium chelator were ...
  • Stimuli-responsive metal-directed self-assembly of a ring-in-ring complex 

    Alvariño Bouza, Cristina; Platas-Iglesias, Carlos; Blanco, Victor; García, Marcos D.; Peinador, Carlos; Quintela López, José María (Royal Society of Chemistry, 2016-06-06)
    [Abstract] Concentration, temperature and/or solvent polarity control the speciation on the metal-directed self-assembly of a ditopic pyridyl ligand L with cis-protected Pd(II) metal centers. This results into a controllable ...
  • Room temperature molecular up conversion in solution 

    Nonat, Aline; Chan, Chi Fai; Liu, Tao; Platas-Iglesias, Carlos; Liu, Zhenyu; Wong, Wing-Tak; Wong, Wai-Kwok; Wong, Ka-Leung; Charbonnière, Loïc J. (Springer Nature, 2016-06-15)
    [Abstract] Up conversion is an Anti-Stokes luminescent process by which photons of low energy are piled up to generate light at a higher energy. Here we show that the addition of fluoride anions to a D2O solution of a ...
