Abstract

We describe the syntheses of half-sandwich complexes of the type [(η$^5$-Cp(CONH-R))M(CO)$_3$] with M = Re or $^{99m}$Tc. The R group represents different tri-peptides (tpe) which display high binding affinities for oligopeptide transporters PEPT2. The $^{99m}$Tc complexes were prepared directly from [$^{99m}$Tc(OH$_2$)$_3$(CO)$_3$]+ and Diels–Alder dimerized, cyclopentadienyl derivatized peptides in water. This approach corroborates the feasibility of metal-mediated retro Diels–Alder reactions for the preparation of not only small molecules but also peptides carrying a [(η$^5$-Cp)$^{99m}$Tc(CO)$_3$] tag. We synthesized the Diels–Alder product [(HCpCONH-tpe)$_2$] from Thiele's acid [(η$^5$-HCpCOOH)$_2$] via double peptide coupling. The Re-complexes [(η$^5$-CpCONH-tpe)Re(CO)$_3$] were obtained by attaching [(Cp-COOH)Re(CO)$_3$] directly to the N-terminus of peptides as received from SPPS. The authenticity of the $^{99m}$Tc-complexes is confirmed by chromatographic comparison with the corresponding rhenium complexes, fully characterized by spectroscopic techniques.

TrendTerms

TrendTerms displays relevant terms of the abstract of this publication and related documents on a map. The terms and their relations were extracted from ZORA using word statistics. Their timelines are taken from ZORA as well. The bubble size of a term is proportional to the number of documents where the term occurs. Red, orange, yellow and green colors are used for terms that occur in the current document; red indicates high interlinkedness of a term with other terms, orange, yellow and green decreasing interlinkedness. Blue is used for terms that have a relation with the terms in this document, but occur in other documents.
You can navigate and zoom the map. Mouse-hovering a term displays its timeline, clicking it yields the associated documents.
