A potent antioxidant small molecule aimed at targeting metal-based oxidative stress in neurodegenerative disorders

Author affiliations

Abstract

Metal-ion misregulation and oxidative stress have been linked to the progressive neurological decline associated with multiple neurodegenerative disorders. Transition metal-mediated oxidation of biomolecules via Fenton chemical reactions plays a role in disease progression. Herein we report the synthesis, characterization and antioxidant activity of 2; a pyclen derivative with enhanced antioxidant character.
