Abstract

Rhenium(V) complexes containing tridentate thiosemicarbazones/thiosemicarbazides (H(2)L1) derived from N-{[}N', N'-dialkylamino(thiocarbonyl)] benzimidoyl chlorides with 4,4-dialkylthiosemicarbazides have been synthesized by ligand-exchange reactions starting from {[}ReOCl(L1)]. The chlorido ligand of {[}ReOCl-(L1)] (4) is readily replaced and reactions with ammonium thiocyanate or potassium cyanide give {[}ReO-(NCS)(L1)] (6) and {[}ReO(CN)(L1)] (7), respectively. The reaction of (NBu4){[}ReOCl4] with H(2)L1 and two equivalents of ammonium thiocyanate, however, gives in a one-pot reaction {[}ReO(NCS)(2)(HL1)] (8), in which the pro-ligand H(2)L1 is only singly deprotonated. An oxo-bridged, dimeric nitridorhenium(V) compound of the composition {[}[ReN(HL1)](2)O] (11) is obtained from a reaction of (NBu4){[}ReOCl4], H(2)L1 and sodium azide. The six-coordinate complexes {[}ReO(L1)(Ph(2)btu)] (12), where HPh2btu is N, N-diphenyl-N'-benzoylthiourea, can be obtained by treatment of {[}ReOCl(L1)] with HPh(2)btu in the presence of NEt3. Studies of the antiproliferative effects of the {[}ReOX(L1)] system (X = Cl-, NCS- or CN-) on breast cancer cells show that the lability of a monodentate ligand seems to play a key role in the cytotoxic activity of the metal complexes, while the substitution of this ligand by the chelating ligand Ph(2)btu(-) completely terminates the cytotoxicity.
