Abstract

Herein, we report the CO-release activity of three new photoCORMs, two with nonbonding pyridine moieties and one with a benzyl group. The compounds [MnBr(CO)3(bpa-κ2)] (2, where bpa = N-benzyl(2-pyridylmethyl)amine); [MnBr(CO)3(pmpeaκ2)] (3, where pmpea = N-(2-pyridylmethyl)-N’-(2-pyridylethyl)amine) and [MnBr(CO)3(bpea-κ2)] (4, where bpea = N-bis(2- pyridylethyl)amine) were synthesized and characterized by common spectroscopic techniques (UV-Vis, IR). Density functional theory studies were also performed to provide new insights into the M–C bond and to assume the orbitals involved in the absorption transitions. Their CO-release activities were measured both in organic and in physiological media and compared to that of a previously published compound [Mn(CO)3(dpa-κ3)]Br (1, where dpa = N-bis(2- pyridylmethyl)amine). An increase in the number of members of the chelate from five to six, influenced the release of CO, affecting both the binding mode of the ligand and the CO-release process and affecting their potential use as potentials CO release carriers as therapeutic agents.
