Five-membered nitrogen-containing rings, pyrrolidines, are found in a plethora of medicinally useful compounds.
Phytochemical investigations showed that plants of the family Piperaceae have several compounds such as esters, phenolic ethers, volatile oils, lignans, and pyrrolidine alkaloids (Gibbs, 1974).
Like methanofullerenes, fulleropyrrolidines are efficient acceptors for OPV devices and, recently, it was established that the introduction of a thiophene moiety on the pyrrolidine ring has a favorable effect on the power conversion energy (PCE) of a solar cell [19].
Thus, 4-ureidoquinoline derivatives, in which 1,2,3,4-tetrahydroisoquinole, piperidine, piperazine, and pyrrolidine moieties were introduced, were also tested for their ability to displace human [[sup.125]I]U-II binding to a rhabdomyosarcoma cell line ([IC.sub.50] values ranging from 1 to 1000 nM) [60-62].
