Liquid crystalline cholesterol-based ortho-palladated curcumin complexes as multifunctional biomaterials
Mononuclear ortho-palladated complexes containing 2-phenylquinoline ligand functionalized with a chiral entity and a biologically active O,O chelated ligand have been synthesized and fully characterized. The evaluation of the liquid crystalline properties of these non-conventional compounds is reported in view of a potential use of these organometallic systems in generating new bifunctional biomaterials.
