ABSTRACT Synthesis procedures are described for the new stable mixed ligand complexes, [Pd(Hpa)(pa)]Cl, [Pd(pa)(H2O)2]Cl, [Pd(pa)(en)]Cl, [Pd(pa)(bpy)]Cl, [Pd(pa)(phen)Cl], [Pd(pa)(pyq)Cl], cis-[MoO2(pa)2], [Ag(pa)(bpy)], [Ag(pa)(pyq)], trans-[UO2(pa)(pyq)](BPh4) and [ReO(PPh3)(pa)2]Cl (Hpa = 2-piperidine-carboxylic acid, en = ethylene diamine, bpy = 2,2′-bipyridyl, phen = 1,10-phenanthroline, pyq = 2(2′-pyridyl)quinoxaline).
Their elemental analyses, conductance, thermal measurements, Raman, IR, electronic, 1H-n.m.r. and mass spectra have been measured and discussed. 2-Piperidine-carboxylic acid and its palladium complexes have
been tested as growth inhibitors against Ehrlich ascites tumour cells (EAC) in Swiss albino mice.

    ABSTRACT: The new complexes of 4-methylesculetin (H2mesc), [Zn2(bpy)2(mesc)2], [Zn(PPh3)2(mesc)], Na2[MoO2(mesc)2], (PPh4)2[Mo2O5(mesc)2], [Pd(bpy)(mesc)], [Pd(phen)(mesc)], [Pd(PPh3)2(mesc)], [Pt(PPh3)2(mesc)] and [Ag(bpy)2]. (bpy)H2mesc(NO3), are reported. The complexes were characterized on the bases of elemental analysis, spectroscopic (IR, UV–Vis, mass, 1H, 13C and 31P NMR) and physical (conductivity and thermal) techniques. The ligand (mesc2−) behaves in a binegative bidentate fashion, chelating the metal ions through the deprotonated hydroxy oxygen atoms, except in case of Ag(I), where it was found outside the coordination sphere of the complex. The X-ray crystal structure of [Zn2(bpy)2(mesc)2] has been determined. The bond length of Zn–O(7) is shorter than Zn–O(6). A theoretical study on H2mesc and its dianion mesc−2 was undertaken through computational conformational analysis, indicating the higher basicity of O(7) with respect to O(6). H2mesc and the complexes have been tested as anti-neoplastic agents against human prostate cancer (DU 145) and human breast cancer (MDA-MB231) cell lines.

    ABSTRACT: In this work, we will report a combined experimental and theoretical study on molecular and vibrational structure of 4-bromo-1-(ethoxycarbonyl)piperidine-4-carboxylic acid (BEPA). BEPA has been characterized by FT-IR, FT-Raman, (1)H NMR, (13)C NMR and UV spectroscopy. The FT-IR and FT-Raman spectra of BEPA were recorded in the solid phase. The optimized geometry was calculated by B3LYP and M06-2X methods using 6-311G(d,p) basis set. The FT-IR and FT-Raman spectra of BEPA were calculated at the same level and were interpreted in terms of Potential Energy Distribution (PED) analysis. The scaled theoretical wavenumber showed very good agreement with the experimental values. The (1)H and (l3)C nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) chemical shifts of the molecule were calculated by the Gauge-Independent Atomic Orbital (GIAO) method. Stability of the molecule arising from hyperconjugative interactions and charge delocalization has been analyzed using Natural Bond Orbital (NBO) analysis. Density plots over the highest occupied molecular orbitals (HOMO) and lowest unoccupied molecular orbitals (LUMO) energy surface directly identifies the donor and acceptor atoms in the molecule. It also provides information about the charge transfer within the molecule. To obtain chemical reactivity of the molecule, the molecular electrostatic potential (MEP) surface map is plotted over the optimized geometry of the molecule. Copyright © 2014 Elsevier B.V.

    ABSTRACT: Synthesis and characterization of new complexes of 6-methylpyridine-2-carbaldehydethiosemicarbazone (Hmpytsc) and 6-methylpyridine-2-carbaldehyde-N(4)-phenylthiosemicarbazone (Hmpyptsc) with [VO2L], [Zn(HL)Cl2], [Ru(PPh3)2L2], and [MLCl] (M(II) = Pd, Pt; HL = Hmpytsc, Hmpyptsc) are reported. Their structures are discussed on the basis of IR, Raman, UV–vis, NMR (1H, 13C, and 31P), and mass spectroscopic data, as well as elemental analysis and molar conductivity. In the X-ray crystal structure of the square-planar [Pd(mpyptsc)Cl]·DMSO, mpyptsc− is coordinated to Pd(II) in a tridentate manner through pyridyl N, azomethine N, and thiol S, and the fourth coordination site is occupied by a chloride. A theoretical study on [Pd(mpyptsc)Cl]·DMSO was undertaken through DFT conformational analysis. The in vitro cytotoxic activity has been evaluated against human colon cancer (HCT116) and prostate cancer (DU145) cell lines. Hmpyptsc and [Zn(Hmpyptsc)Cl2] were most active with mean IC50 values of 3.32 and 2.60 (HCT116), and 3.60 and 3.10 (DU145) μM, respectively.
