© 2014 Elsevier Masson SAS. All rights reserved.A number of novel ansa-spiro-ansa (asa) cyclotetraphosphazenes (1a-5b) was prepared in the range of 63-90 % yields. The structures of the compounds were verified by MS, FTIR, 1H, 13C{1H} and 31P{1H} NMR, heteronuclear single quantum coherence (HSQC), and heteronuclear multiple-bond correlation (HMBC) techniques. The crystal structures of 1b, 2c and 5a were determined by X-ray crystallography. The compound 2c was analyzed by the changes in the 31P{1H}NMR spectrum in addition of the chiral solvating agent; (R)-(+)-2,2,2-trifluoro-1-(9'-anthryl)-ethanol (CSA), to investigate its stereogenic properties. The result supports that compound 2c was found to be in the racemic mixture. Cyclic voltammetric and chronoamperometric data of the mono-ferrocenyl-spiro-asa-cyclotetraphosphazenes exhibited electrochemically reversible one-electron oxidation of Fe redox centres. The mono-ferrocenyl-spiro-asa compounds (3a-5b) were evaluated for antituberculosis activity against reference strain Mycobacterium tuberculosis H37Rv and M. tuberculosis clinical strain, which is resistant to rifampicin and isoniazid. These compounds appear not to be good candidates for being antituberculosis agents to clinical strains. All of the compounds were screened for antibacterial activities against G(+) and G(-) bacteria, and for antifungal activities against yeast strains. They seem to be more active against Gram positive bacteria than Gram negative. The interactions of the phosphazenes with plasmid DNA and the evaluations for cytotoxic activity against MCF-7 breast cancer cell lines were investigated. The compounds 1b, 2b, 3a and 4a were found to be more effective than Cisplatin against MCF-7 breast cancer cell lines at lower concentrations.
