The synthesis of the new click PEs was performed by one-pot/two-step/three-component SGP of diester-diynes (Y = O-CO in Figure 4) with bis-bromoacetates of diols (X = O in Figure 2) in the presence of sodium azide using copper(I) catalysts.
In order to confirm such involvement of metabolic activity in the reduction, [CD8.sup.+] T cells were stimulated with IL-7 in the presence of sodium azide, which acts to block metabolic activity.
2-Amino-3-((4- chlorophenyl)thio)naphthalene-1,4-dione (5c) Compound 5c was synthesized by the reaction of 0.15 g (0.45 mmol) 2-chloro-3-((4-chlorophenyl)thio) naphthalene-1,4-dione (3c) with 0.58 g (9mmol) sodium azide. It is also prepared from by the reaction of 0.05 g (0.11 mmol) 2,3-bis(4- chlorophenylthio)naphthalene-1,4-dione (4c) with 0.15 g (2.2 mmol) sodium azide.

Sodium azide was obtained from the Department of Chemistry, Faculty of Physical Sciences, University of Ilorin, Ilorin, Nigeria.
A fraction of 1 mL of each sample was also transferred to sterile tubes containing 5.0 mM phenylmethylsulfonyl fluoride and 0.002% sodium azide, and stored at -20[degrees]C until antibody analysis.
Since the 1970s, [gamma]-rays, sodium azide, and ethyl methane sulfonate (EMS) have been used for wheat breeding [4].
Contamination of solutions—Presence of contaminants, such as sodium azide and peroxidise can affect the substrate reaction.
Moreover, PQQ protected cells from mitochondrial inhibition by rotenone, 3-nitropropionic acid, antimycin A, and sodium azide. The ability of PQQ to stimulate mitochondrial biogenesis accounts in part for action of this compound and suggests that PQQ may be beneficial in diseases associated with mitochondrial dysfunction.
After aromatization and complexation, the respective meso-substituted BODIPY was obtained, yielding an azido-BODIPY after reaction with sodium azide [51, 52] (Figure 26).
