|Solvent:||Chloroform, Dichloromethane, Ethyl Acetate, DMSO, Acetone, etc.|
|Storage:||Providing storage is as stated on the product vial and the vial is kept tightly sealed, the product can be stored for up to 24 months(2-8C).
Wherever possible, you should prepare and use solutions on the same day. However, if you need to make up stock solutions in advance, we recommend that you store the solution as aliquots in tightly sealed vials at -20C. Generally, these will be useable for up to two weeks. Before use, and prior to opening the vial we recommend that you allow your product to equilibrate to room temperature for at least 1 hour.

|Cytotoxic naphthoquinones from Alkanna cappadocica ( perpendicular).[Pubmed: 20405844 ]|
|In a continuing program to discover new anticancer agents from plants, especially naphthoquinones from the Alkanna genus, Alkanna cappadocica was investigated. Bioassay-guided fractionation of a dichloromethane/methanol (1:1) extract of the roots led to the isolation of four new and four known naphthoquinones. The known compounds are 11-deoxyalkannin (1), Beta,beta-Dimethylacrylalkannin (2), 11-O-acetylalkannin (3), and alkannin (4). The new compounds 5-O-methyl-11-deoxyalkannin (5), 8-O-methyl-11-deoxyalkannin (6), 5-O-methyl-11-O-acetylalkannin (7), and 5-O-methyl-Beta,beta-Dimethylacrylalkannin (8) were characterized by spectroscopic analyses (LC-ESIMS, 1D and 2D NMR). Cytotoxicity of the isolated compounds was evaluated versus 12 human cancer cell lines, HT-29, MDA-MB-231, PC-3, AU565, Hep G2, LNCaP, MCF7, HeLa, SK-BR-3, DU 145, Saos-2, and Hep 3B together with two normal cell lines, VERO and 3T3, by using the MTT assay.|

|DFT study on the radical scavenging activity of β,β-dimethylacrylalkannin derivatives[Reference: WebLink]|
|The radical scavenging activity of β,β-dimethylacrylalkannin(Beta,beta-Dimethylacrylalkannin) derivatives has been studied by using density functional theory. The hydrogen bond property of the studied structures was investigated using the atoms in molecules theory. It turned out that the hydrogen bond is important for good radical scavenging activity. The hydrogen atom transfer for β,β-dimethylacrylalkannin derivatives is difficult to occur compared with the zero compound phenol. However, β,β-dimethylacrylalkannin derivatives appear to be good candidates for the one-electron transfer, particularly for β,β-dimethylacrylalkannin derivatives with electron-donating groups. Their naphthoquinone planar conformation and the extended electronic delocalisation between adjacent substituent groups determine low adiabatic ionisation potential (IP) values. The IPvalues of β,β-dimethylacrylalkannin derivatives with –NHPh, –N(CH)Ph, –N(CHCH)O and –N(CH)groups are lower than that of the parent compound β,β-dimethylacrylalkannin, suggesting that these derivatives are expected to be the promising candidates for radical scavenging activity compounds. Taking this system as an example, we present an efficient method for the investigation of radical scavenging activity from theoretical point of view.|
