    • Abstract

       

      We have prepared 4-nitrobenzamide-adenine conjugates (8, 13 and 14) linked with versatile spacer such as triethylene glycol (TEG), aminocaproic acid and ethyl chains which were eventually reduced to obtain the corresponding 4-aminobenzamide-adenine conjugates (1-3) in good yields. These conjugates bear a nucleobase for DNA recognition or self-assembly through base-pair complementarity, a biocompatible linker for interfacing with biological system, and a p-aminobenzamide moiety for pharmacological applications. The use of hydrophilic or lipophilic linkers may tune the dispersibility of these conjugates in different solvents, as well as impart different properties. In the preliminary experiments the versatility and application of these linkers has been tested for functionalization of SWCNTs.
