ABSTRACT A novel series of macrocyclic complexes of the type [M(C(18)H(14)N(10)S(2))X]X(2) where M=Cr(III), Fe(III) and Mn(III); X=Cl(-), NO(3)(-) and CH(3)COO(-) have been synthesized by [2+2] condensation of thiocarbohydrazide and isatin in the presence of trivalent metal salts in methanolic medium by template method. The complexes have been characterized with the help of elemental analyses, conductance measurements, magnetic measurements, electronic, NMR, IR and mass spectral studies. On the basis of these studies, a five coordinate square pyramidal geometry for all of these complexes has been proposed. These metal complexes were also tested for their in vitro antimicrobial activities against some bacterial strains viz. Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and some fungal strains Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus flavus (molds), Candida albicans, Saccharomyces cerevisiae (yeasts).

    ABSTRACT: A manganese(II) complex of 4-(4-methylphenyl)-3,5-bis(2-pyridyl)-4H-1,2,4-triazole (MBPT) was synthesized and characterized by X-ray crystallography. [Mn(MBPT)2(H2O)2](ClO4)2 · 4H2O is a divalent mononuclear manganese(II) complex with manganese coordinated to four nitrogens from two triazole ligands and two oxygens from two water molecules in a slightly distorted octahedral geometry. The complex and ligand were tested in vitro for their antibacterial activities. The title complex showed a wide range of bactericidal activities.

    ABSTRACT: A series of the macrocyclic complexes is synthesized by condensation of acetonylacetone and thiocarbohydrazide in the presence of divalent metal salts in the methanolic medium. The complexes are of the type: [M(TML)X2] where, M = Co(II), Ni(II), Cu(II), Zn(II) and Cd(II); X = Cl− CH3COO− and TML is a tetradentate macrocyclic ligand. The complexes have been characterized with the help of various physicochemical techniques like elemental analyses, conductance measurements, magnetic measurements, NMR, infrared and electronic spectral studies. The low value of molar conductance indicates them to be non-electrolyte. On the basis of various studies a distorted octahedral geometry may be proposed for all the complexes. All the synthesized metal complexes were also tested for their in vitro antibacterial activities against some bacterial strains. The results obtained were compared with standard antibiotic: Ciprofloxacin. Some of the tested complexes shows good antibacterial activities against some bacterial strains.

    ABSTRACT: A Schiff base, obtained by the condensation of isatin monohydrazone with 2,3,5-trichlorobenzaldehyde, and its Co(II), Ni(II), Cu(II), and Zn(II) complexes have been synthesized and characterized. The interaction of these complexes with DNA is investigated using viscosity, absorption titration, and electrochemical techniques. The results indicate that the complexes bind to Calf thymus DNA through intercalation. Oxidative cleavage activities of the complexes are studied using supercoiled pBR322 DNA by gel electrophoresis. Antimicrobial study reveals that copper and zinc complexes are better antimicrobial agents than the Schiff base and its other complexes.
