Zosuquidar Trihydrochloride (167465-36-3)
Zosuquidar (also LY-335979) is an experimental antineoplastic drug. In 2010, it was announced that a phase III trial for the treatment of acute myeloid leukemia (AML) and myelodysplastic syndrome did not meet its primary endpoint and Eli Lilly discontinued its development. Zosquidir inhibits P-glycoproteins.
Spiropentane is a hydrocarbon with formula C5H8. It is the simplest spiro-connected cycloalkane, a triangulane. It took several years after the discovery in 1887 until the structure of the molecule was determined.According to the nomenclature rules for spiro compounds, the systematic name is spiro[2.2]pentane.
Thujene (or α-thujene) is a natural organic compound classified as a monoterpene. It is found in the essential oils of a variety of plants, and contributes pungency to the flavor of some herbs such as Summer savory. The term thujene usually refers to α-thujene.
Cuneane (C8H8, Pentacyclo[18.104.22.168 2,4.03,7.06,8]octane) is a saturated hydrocarbon. Its name is derived from the Latin cuneus, meaning a wedge. Cuneane may be produced from cubane by metal-ion-catalyzed σ-bond rearrangement.
2-METHYLNAPHTHALENE (7419-61-6, 91-57-6)
2-methylnaphthalene, methyl-13C-labeled · 2-methylnaphthalene, lithium salt, ion(1-) · 2-methylnaphthalene, naphthalene-1-(13)C-labeled
2-Methylnaphthalene is a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH). On February 22, 2014, NASA announced a greatly upgraded database for detecting and monitoring PAHs, including 2-methylnaphthalene, in the universe. According to NASA scientists, over 20% of the carbon in the universe may be associated with PAHs, possible starting materials for the formation of life.
FLUORENE (2299-68-5, 86-73-7)
Fluorene , or 9H-fluorene, is a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon. It forms white crystals that exhibit a characteristic, aromatic odor similar to that of naphthalene. It is combustible.
Cadalene or cadalin (4-isopropyl-1,6-dimethylnaphthalene) is a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon with a chemical formula C15H18 and a cadinane skeleton. It is derived from generic sesquiterpenes, and ubiquitous in essential oils of many higher plants. Cadalene, together with retene, simonellite and ip-iHMN, is a biomarker of higher plants, which makes it useful for paleobotanic analysis of rock sediments.
