General description

5-Nitroisoquinoline reacted with vinylmagnesium bromide to form a number of pyrroloisoquinolines. 5-Nitroisoquinoline derivatives (potential antimalarial drugs) were evaluated for mutagenic (MUT) and chromosome-damaging (CHR) activities by the Salmonella test.


5-Nitroisoquinoline was used to prepare a number of pyrroloisoquinolines.

The mutagenic (MUT) and chromosome-damaging (CHR) activities of 22 potential antimalarial drugs (5-nitroisoquinoline derivatives) were evaluated by the Salmonella test and the cytokinesis-blocked micronucleus assay (CBMN). The Salmonella mutagenicity test was performed with and without metabolic activation (S9 mix) in...

A number of pyrroloisoquinolines have been prepared by reaction of 5-nitroisoquinoline with vinylmagnesium bromide followed by N-alkylation with the appropriate 2-chloro-N,N-dialkylethylamine. Their cytotoxicity was evaluated in a number of ovarian cell lines and compared to their analogous isomeric pyrroloquinolines. Two...

Two previously unreported isomeric biradicals with a 1,4-radical topology, the 1,5-didehydroisoquinolinium cation and the 4,8-didehydroisoquinolinium cation, and an additional, previously reported isomer, the 4,5-didehydroisoquinolinium cation, were studied to examine the importance of the exact location of the radical sites on...
