Synthesis, Crystal Structure and Interaction With DNA of N,N′-(Butane-1,4-Diyl)Bis(Guanidinium) Tetrachloroplatinate (II)
The design, synthesis, crystal structure and interaction with DNA of the N,N′-(butane-1,4-diyl)bis(guanidinium) tetrachloroplatinate(ll) are described. Crystal data: a = 8.152(1), b = 8.889(4), c = 10.700(3) Å , α = 81.59(3), β = 87.99(5), γ = 78.48(6)°, V = 752(1) , Z = 2 , space group P-1. The structure was refined to R = 0.039 and Rw = 0.046 from 1853 reflections (I > 3σ(I)). This compound, named , does not exhibit a center of symmetry and the center linker chain C(2) - C(3) - C(4) - C(5) is in gauche conformation. The cation is bisprotonated with the attached to the imine group of each terminal guanidinium function. The presence of the platinum moiety reinforces the binding of the butane(bis)guanidinium structure with double stranded DNA as judged from thermal denaturation studies and DNA unwinding experiments.
