ABSTRACT The synthesis, structure, spectroscopic and electro-spectrochemical properties of steric hindered Schiff-base ligand [N,N'-(3,4-benzophenon)-3,5-Bu(t)(2)-salicylaldimine (LH(2))] and its mononuclear Cu(II), Co(II), Ni(II), Mn(II) and Fe(II) complexes are described in this work. The new dissymmetric steric hindered Schiff-base ligand containing a donor set of NONO was prepared through reaction of 3,4-diaminobenzophenon with 3,5-Bu(t)(2)-salicylaldehyde. Certain metal complexes of this ligand were synthesized by treating an ethanolic solution of the ligand with an equimolar amount of metal salts. The ligand and its complexes were characterized by FT-IR, UV-vis, (1)H NMR, elemental analysis, molar conductivity and thermal analysis methods in addition to magnetic susceptibility, electrochemistry and spectroelectrochemistry techniques. The tetradentate and mononuclear metal complexes were obtained by reacting N,N'-(3,4-benzophenon)-3,5-Bu(t)(2)-salicylaldimine (LH(2)) with some metal acetate in a 1:1 mole ratio. The molar conductance data suggest metal complexes to be non-electrolytes.

    ABSTRACT: By inhibiting only two or three of 12 restriction enzymes, the series of [M(phen)(edda)] complexes [M(II) is Cu, Co, Zn; phen is 1,10-phenanthroline; edda is N,N'-ethylenediaminediacetate] exhibit DNA binding specificity. The Cu(II) and Zn(II) complexes could differentiate the palindromic sequences 5'-CATATG-3' and 5'-GTATAC-3', whereas the Co(II) analogue could not. This and other differences in their biological properties may arise from distinct differences in their octahedral structures. The complexes could inhibit topoisomerase I, stabilize or destabilize G-quadruplex, and lower the mitochondrial membrane potential of MCF7 breast cells. The pronounced stabilization of G-quadruplex by the Zn(II) complex may account for the additional ability of only the Zn(II) complex to induce cell cycle arrest in S phase. On the basis of the known action of anticancer compounds against the above-mentioned individual targets, we suggest the mode of action of the present complexes could involve multiple targets. Cytotoxicity studies with MCF10A and cisplatin-resistant MCF7 suggest that these complexes exhibit selectivity towards breast cancer cells over normal ones.

    ABSTRACT: In order to develop new metallo-antimicrobials the complexes of type MLCl·nH2O ((1) M: Co, n = 0; (2) M: Ni, n = 2; (3) M: Cu, n = 2.5; (4) M: Zn, n = 0, HL: Schiff base derived from acetylacetone and 3-amino-4H-1,2,4-triazole) were synthesized by template condensation. The features of complexes have been assigned from microanalytical, IR and UV–Vis-NIR data. The species heating in air evidenced processes as melting, water and hydrochloride endothermic elimination as well as oxidative degradation of the Schiff base. The temperature ranges as well as modification in the electronic spectra of dehydrated intermediates indicate the presence of both coordination and crystallisation water molecules. The final product of decomposition was the most stable metal oxide as powder X-ray diffraction indicated.

    ABSTRACT: Starting from 5-bromo-N,N′-bis-(salicylidene)-o-tolidine (H2L) new complexes with Co(II), Ni(II) and Cu(II) were synthesised and characterised. The features of complexes have been assigned from microanalytical, IR, UV–Vis–NIR and EPR spectra, magnetic data at room temperature as well as thermal analysis. IR data are in accordance with bischelate nature of the deprotonated ligand that coordinates through azomethinic nitrogen and phenolic oxygen. The electronic spectra display the characteristic pattern of tetrahedral stereochemistry for [CoL]·H2O complex and octahedral one for [NiL(OH2)2]·H2O complex. The electronic spectra correlated with magnetic susceptibility measurements indicate a square-planar surrounding for [ML] (M:Ni, Cu) species, while the EPR spectrum of copper complex sustains the proposed stereochemistry. The thermal analysis evidenced that thermal transformations are complex processes according to TG, DTA and DTG curves including (crystallization or coordination) water elimination, thermolyses and oxidative degradation of Schiff base. All these processes lead to the most stable metallic oxides as final product.
