Two novel Cd(II) and Zn(II) complexes with the condensation product of 2-formylpyridine and selenosemicarbazide were synthesized. The structure of Cd(II) complex was determined by X-ray crystallography. The ligand is coordinated in a neutral form via pyridine and azomethine nitrogen atoms and the selenium donor. The cadmium ion completes its(More)
The antibacterial and antifungal properties of five 2,6-diacetylpyridine bis(acylhydrazones) (acyl:benzoyl, H2dapb; 2-aminobenzoyl, H2dapab; salicyloyl, H2daps; picolinoyl, H2dappc; 2-thenoyl, H2dapt) and of a series of metal complexes were investigated. The x-ray crystal structure of the [Cu(dapt)]2 complex was also determined. It consists of dimeric units(More)
A number of new 3-(1-R-3(5)-methyl-4-nitroso-1H-5(3)-pyrazolyl)-5-methylisoxazoles 6a-g (7b-f) were synthesized and tested for antibacterial and antifungal activity. Some of these compounds displayed antifungal activity at non-cytotoxic concentrations. Derivative 6c was 9 times more potent in vitro than miconazole and 20 times more selective against C.(More)
A new series of ligands is synthesised starting from thiocarbonohydrazide and isatin (H(2)itc) or N-alkylisatin (methyl, H(2)mtc; butyl, H(2)btc; pentyl, H(2)ptc); the X-ray structure of H(2)mtc is discussed. The bis imine ligands are reacted with diorganotin(IV) compounds, obtaining monometallic complexes. In order to establish unequivocally their(More)
Several mono- and bis- carbono- and thiocarbonohydrazone ligands have been synthesised and characterised; the X-ray diffraction analysis of bis(phenyl 2-pyridyl ketone) thiocarbonohydrazone is reported. The coordinating properties of the ligands have been studied towards Cu(II), Fe(II), and Zn(II) salts. The ligands and the metal complexes were tested in(More)
Chloro complexes [RuCl(N-N)P3]BPh4 (1-3) [N-N = 2,2'-bipyridine, bpy; 1,10-phenanthroline, phen; 5,5'-dimethyl-2,2'-bipyridine, 5,5'-Me2bpy; P = P(OEt)3, PPh(OEt)2 and PPh2OEt] were prepared by allowing the [RuCl4(N-N)].H2O compounds to react with an excess of phosphite in ethanol. The bis(bipyridine) [RuCl(bpy)2[P(OEt)3]]BPh4 (7) complex was also prepared(More)
The mechanism of action of rifamycins against bacterial DNA-dependent RNA polymerase has been explained on the basis of the spatial arrangement of four oxygens which can form hydrogen bonds with the enzyme. Structural descriptors are derived from X-ray diffraction crystal structures of 25 active and nonactive rifamycins. Principal component analysis is used(More)
The solid state structures of the (-)-n-heptylcarbamate of geneseroline and its hydrochloride salt were determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis. Both compounds gave crystals belonging to the orthorombic P2(1)2(1)2(1) space group with a = 27.597(7) A, b = 8.899(2) A, c = 9.290(2) A, V = 2281.5(9) A3, Z = 4, and R = 0.0682 for the base and a =(More)
By substitution reactions of the coordinated THF ligands of Re(2)(mu-X)(2)(CO)(6)(THF)(2) by elemental chalcogens (S(8) and red selenium), the complexes Re(2)(mu-X)(2)(CO)(6)(S(8)) (X = Br, 1; I, 2), and Re(2)(mu-X)(2)(CO)(6)(Se(7)), (X = I, 3; Br, 4) have been prepared. Binuclear compound 3 was crystallographically established to be a coordination compound(More)
A family of organic-inorganic wheel-and-axle diols (Pd(LOH)(2)Cl(2), Pd(LOH)(2)(CH(3))Cl, Pd(LOH)(2)(CH(3)COO)(2), LOH = alpha-(4-pyridyl)benzhydrol) and several corresponding solvates are synthesized and characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis. Their structures are compared to investigate the factors governing the modes of solid state(More)
