Abstract

New dimeric quaternary alkylammonium conjugates of sterols were obtained by two step reactions of ergosterol, cholesterol and cholestanol with bromoacetic acid bromide, followed by bimolecular nucleophilic substitution with N,N,N',N'-tetramethyl-1,3-propanediamine, N,N,N',N'',N''-pentamethyldiethylenetriamine and 3,3'-iminobis- (N,N-dimethylpropylamine). The product structures were confirmed by spectral (1H-NMR, 13C-NMR, FT-IR) analysis, mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) and PM5 semiempirical methods. Additionally in silico studies have been conducted for the synthesized compounds on the basis of Prediction of Activity Spectra for Substances (PASS). View Full-Text
