Abstract: The syntheses, characteristics of dinuclear macrocyclic polyamine zinc complexes and their interaction with plasmid DNA are reported. The two cyclen (1,4,7,10-tetraazacyclododecane) moieties are bridged by rigid and flexible linkages. The crystal structures of Zn2C27H 43N8O15Cl4 [5c·(ClO 4)3·2H2O] and Zn2C 30H43N10O13Cl3 [5e·(ClO4)3·H2O] have been determined. The complexes crystallize in the monoclinic space group C2/c and P2(1)/c with the following unit cell parameters: 5c·(ClO 4)3·2H2O: a = 32.568(4) Å, b = 14.8593(17) Å, c = 19.443(2) Å, α = 90.00°, β = 119.435(4)°, γ = 90.00°, Dc = 1.551 mg/m3, FW = 956.71, F(0 0 0) = 3932; 5e·(ClO4)3· H2O: a = 15.807(2) Å, b = 16.756(2) Å, c = 16.161(2) Å, α = 90.00°, β = 97.062(4)°, γ = 90.00°, Dc = 1.546 mg/m3, FW = 988.83, F(0 0 0) = 2032. The distance between the two Zn(II) ions is about 4.0 Å. The structures show that two zinc ions can synergistically interact with the substrate DNA. With this novel structural characteristics, the dinuclear macrocyclic polyamine Zn(II) complexes via the synergetic effect between the two zinc ions can catalyze the cleavage of plasmid DNA (pUC18) with unprecedented speed at physiological conditions.
