This Perspective will focus on recent developments in the field of antitumour metallocenes structurally related to titanocene dichloride. Despite extensive testing of titanocene dichloride which culminated in phase I and II clinical trials, further trials have been abandoned. While DNA...

The effect of aqueous solubility, charge, and lability of four thiol derivatives of the antitumor metallocene molybdocene dichloride (Cp(2)MoCl(2)) on the cell uptake and cytotoxicity against V79 Chinese hamster lung cells has been determined. Addition of 4-thiol-2,3,5,6-tetrafluorobenzoic acid, 1-thio-beta-d-glucose, and...

The relative affinity of molybdocene dichloride (Cp(2)MoCl(2)) for the thiol, amino, carboxylate, phosphate(O) and heterocyclic(N) donor ligands present in amino acids and nucleotides, has been studied in aqueous solutions at pH 2-7, using (1)H, (13)C and (31)P NMR spectroscopy. Molybdocene...

In view of the fact that bis cyclopentadienyl metal dihalides are known to be anti-tumour drugs, we have investigated the antiviral activity of this type of coordination compounds. Bis cyclopentadienyl titanium dichloride (a) has shown significant antiviral efficiency in vitro...

Thiophosphinate hydrolysis involving P-S bond scission is desirable for the degradation of organophosphate neurotoxins, and we report the first case for such a hydrolytic process by an organometallic compound. The metallocene, bis(cyclopentadienyl)molybdenum(IV) dichloride, Cp(2)MoCl(2) (Cp = eta(5)-C(5)H(5)), hydrolyzes a variety...
