In this work we present the synthesis, structural and spectroscopic characterisation of a series of cobalt(II) and zinc(II) coordination compounds with benzimidazole (bz) and its 2-benzimidazole derivatives: 2-aminobenzimidazole (2ab), albendazole (abz) and tris(2-benzimidazolylmethyl)amine (ntb). The compounds were evaluated for their in vitro(More)
Sixteen novel mononuclear Cu(II), Co(II), Zn(II), and Ni(II) complexes of the biologically active ligand clotrimazole (clotri) of the forms [M(clotri)(2)Cl(2)]·nH(2)O (1-4), [M(clotri)(2)Br(2)]·nH(2)O (5-7), [M(clotri)(3)Br(2)] (8), [M(clotri)(3)NO(3)]NO(3)·nH(2)O (9, 11), [M(clotri)(3)(NO(3))(2)]·nH(2)O (10), and [M(clotri)(3)(OH(2))(2)NO(3)]NO(3)·nH(2)O(More)
In this work we present the synthesis, structural and spectroscopic characterization of Co(2+) coordination compounds with ethyl 4-methyl-5-imidazolecarboxylate (emizco). The effects of emizco, the metal salts CoCl(2).6H(2)O, CoBr(2), Co(NO(3))(2).6H(2)O and their metal coordination compounds [Co(emizco)(2)Cl(2)], [Co(emizco)(2) Br(2)].H(2)O, [Co(emizco)(2)(More)
Coordination compounds with cobalt(II), nickel(II), copper(II) and zinc(II) and the ligand 2,6-bis(2,6-diethylphenyliminomethyl)pyridine (L) were synthesized and fully characterized by IR and UV-Vis-NIR spectroscopy, elemental analysis, magnetic susceptibility and X-ray diffraction for two representative cases. These novel compounds were designed to study(More)
The ephedrine derivative, (H2ceph), yields [Cu(Hceph)2], showing a CH...Cu(II) agostic interaction; while in the analogous compound [Cu(Hcpse)2], with pseudoephedrine (H2cpse), that interaction is absent, despite the fact that these two diasteromers differ only in the orientation of the methyl and phenyl groups: erythro in H2ceph and threo in H2cpse. The(More)
Herein we present the synthesis, structural and spectroscopic characterization of coordination compounds of cobalt(II), copper(II) and zinc(II) with 2-methylbenzimidazole (2mbz), 2-phenylbenzimidazole (2phbz), 2-chlorobenzimidazole (2cbz), 2-benzimidazolecarbamate (2cmbz) and 2-guanidinobenzimidazole (2gbz). Their cytotoxic activity was evaluated using(More)
Herein we report the synthesis, structural and spectroscopic characterization of coordination compounds with bis[2-(1H-benzimidazol-2-yl)phenyl]disulfide [bis-(2phSbz)] (1) and cobalt(II), zinc(II) and cadmium(II) halides (2-7). Their X-ray diffraction analyses showed that the metal ions present similar distorted tetrahedral structures, with the disulfide(More)
[Cr(2gb)(3)]Cl(ZnCl(4)), [Cr(2gb)(3)]Cl(3), and [Co(2gb)(3)]Cl(3) were synthesized and characterized. Their chemical structures and the oxidation states of their metal centers remained unchanged in solution. The effects of these compounds, CrCl(3) and [Co(NH(3))(6)]Cl(3), on photosynthesis were investigated. The coordination compounds inhibit ATP synthesis(More)
The coordination compounds of streptomycin (St), Co2(St)Cl4.13H2O (2), Co2(St)(NO3)4.7H2O (3), Ni2(St)Cl4.14H2O (4), Ni2(St)(NO3)4.14H2O (5), Cu2(St)Cl4.6H2O (6), and Ca(St)Cl2.8H2O (7) have been synthesized by the reaction of streptomycin sulfate (1) with three equivalents of the corresponding inorganic salt. The compounds (2)-(7) were characterized by(More)
