Abstract: A novel platinum(IV) coordination compound with 6-mercaptopurine (6-Hmp) has been synthesised and characterised by IR and
NMR spectroscopy. Spectroscopic parameters indicate the presence of two chelate (S-6, N-7) monodeprotonated ligands and two
chloride ions in the coordination sphere of [PtCl2(6-mp)2] · H2O (I). Two Pt(IV) coordination compounds, [PtCl2(6-mp)2] · H2O (I) and [PtCl4(dbtp)2] (II), were used in the in vivo test against B16 mouse melanoma tumours. Cytotoxic activity of compound II against the tumour cells was found to be high (LC10 = 2.6 μM, LC50 = 17.0 μM, LC90 = 58.0 μM) compared to that of cisplatin.
Keywords: platinum(IV) complexes – purine analogues – NMR – cytotoxicity in vivo – melanoma
