      Abstract:

      A novel class of timolol derivatives with nitric oxide   (NO)-donating moieties achieved chemical stability yet under   physiologically relevant conditions released timolol and NO.   Hindered esters A were designed and synthesized, whose   'triggered' release relied on enzymatic hydrolysis of the nitrate   ester in A to B, that in turn cyclized to liberate timolol.
