  • Patent number: 9889112
    Abstract: The present invention relates to new crystals A, B and F of lobaplatin as well as preparation methods therefor and pharmaceutical applications thereof. Lobaplatin crystal A has a melting point Tm.p. of 220±5° C. and is obtained by adding a lobaplatin trihydrate to a suspension crystallization solvent. Lobaplatin crystal B has a melting point Tm.p. of 230±5° C. and is obtained by performing solvent evaporation on a lobaplatin trihydrate or by adding a solvent to a lobaplatin dihydrate, and performing room temperature evaporation or solventing-out crystallization and then drying. Lobaplatin crystal F has a melting point Tm.p. of 229±5° C. and is obtained by adding methanol or ethanol to a lobaplatin dihydrate, stirring at room temperature until solids are dissolved, filtering out insolubles, slowly adding an organic solvent, crystallizing out, separating the crystal and drying the crystal.

  • Publication number: 20110038809
    Abstract: The present invention provides methods for treating or preventing diseases and disorders caused by iron-dependent pathogenic microorganisms, such as bacteria, fungi, and parasites, by applying a gallium compound to an affected area. In particular, the present invention provides methods for treating or preventing dental caries, vaginal infections, skin infections, and so forth. Gallium compounds can be formulated as toothpaste, mouthwash, cream, ointment, gel, solution, eye drops, suppository, and the like. Furthermore, the invention provides methods for controlling microbial growth on environmental surfaces, including those of toothbrush, denture, dental retainer, contact lens, catheter, food stuff, and so forth. In addition, the present invention provides animal feeds which contain gallium compounds that promote the animal growth and prevent the animals from infections as well as protect consumers from post processing infections.

  • Patent number: 7880026
    Abstract: A rapid, simple and versatile metal organic framework molecule (MOF) synthesis method particularly adapted to make non-linear MOFs includes heating MOF precursors, such as a metal or metal oxide and an organic ligand, in a microwave oven for a period sufficient to achieve crystallization. Microwave-assisted MOF synthesis yields high quality MOF crystals in a reaction time ranging from about 5 seconds to about 2.5 minutes, compared to hours and days required in conventional solvothermal and hydrothermal methods. In addition, microwave assisted methods provide MOF materials with uniform crystal size and well-defined shape. Further, microwave synthesis of MOFs allows the size and shape of MOF crystals to be tailored for use in a wide range applications by manipulating reaction conditions. Secondary growth processes may also be employed to grow larger crystals using seeds obtained from microwave-assisted synthesis methods.

  • Publication number: 20100311080
    Abstract: A dual-interaction ligand for rendering otherwise hydrophobic nanoparticles water soluble or suspendable has a hydrophilic base with a plurality of hydrophilic segments extending from a core of the base, where at least one segment or the core contains a hydrophobic groups capable of forming van der Waal interaction between hydrophobic groups of the dual-interaction ligand and other hydrophobic ligands, and at least one complexing functionality to complex a metal atom or ion of a nanoparticle. The dual-interaction ligands can be combined with hydrophobic nanoparticles, where the dual-interaction ligands can displace some or all of the hydrophobic ligands of the hydrophobic nanoparticles, to form a nanoparticle-dual interaction ligand complex that can be dissolved or dispersed readily in an aqueous solution. The dual interaction ligand can be functionalized to attach an antibody or other biomolecules such that the nanoparticle dual-interaction ligands complexes can contain biomolecules.
