Synthesis of novel dual acting cardio-protective agents

Mankar, Viraj (2016) Synthesis of novel dual acting cardio-protective agents. PhD thesis, Queensland University of Technology.


This research designed and synthesised novel dual action cardio-protective agents combining with nitroxides possessing antioxidant properties. The work resulted in the discovery of a new generation of chemical compounds which can act on more than one targeted disease. This new generation multi-targeted drug compounds can have benefits in reducing toxicity and side effects. The synthesised drug compounds could potentially act as effective preventive treatments for inflammatory diseases and also provide cardiovascular protection.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
