Abstract

New organo-lead compounds have been prepared by means of the Grignard reagent. These compounds are being tested in cancer studies, as anti-knock agents, and as reagents to combat some plant diseases. Grignard reagents are being prepared from tetra-p-bromophenyl-lead, diphenyl-di-p-bromophenyl-lead, and halogeno- alkyl lead types by reaction with the special magnesium-copper alloy using mercuric salts as catalysts. Solubilizing groups like dialkylamino, diethyl-aminoethyl, and various carboxylic acid groups are being attached to the R groups which in turn are attached to lead. For allied purposes the same types are being prepared where the lead has been replaced by tin, antimony, selenium and tellurium.
