Versatile Route to trans-Platinum(II) Complexes via Manipulation of a Coordinated 3-(Pyridin-3-yl)propanoicAcid Ligand

We describe the direct coupling of alcohols and amines to a 3-(pyridin-3-yl)propanoic acid ligand coordinated to a Pt(II) to afford ester and amide derivatives. Using this approach, a family of trans-Pt(II) compounds with amine ligands bearing long perfluorinated chains was prepared, as these chains potentially endow the complexes with thermoactivatable properties. Related compounds with alkyl chains in place of the perfluorinated chains were also prepared as controls using the same direct coupling method. The stability of the complexes in solution, their reactivity with DNA and proteins, and their antiproliferative activity evaluated in tumorigenic (A2780 and A2780cisR) and nontumorigenic (HEK293) cells at 37 degrees C and following exposure to elevated temperatures (that mimic the temperatures employed in thermotherapy) were also studied to assess their utility as putative (thermoactivated) anticancer agents.
