Abstract

DNA‐cleaving agents are of considerable interest in molecular biology and pharmaceutical chemistry. The Garrett–Braverman reaction sequence has now been utilized as a basis for developing the title compounds; l–3 are examples. They are capable of cleaving ϕX174 DNA in a pH‐dependent reaction with maximal activity at pH 8.5. (Figure Presented.)
