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)
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)
The synthesis and characterisation of the following compounds derived from the biological relevant compound ethyl 5-methyl-4-imidazolecarboxylate (emizco) (1): [Cu(emizco)Cl2] (2), [Cu(emizco)2Cl2] (3), [Cu(emizco)2Br2] (4), [Cu(emizco)2(H2O)2](NO3)2 (5) and [Cu(emizco)4](NO3)2 (6), is presented. These compounds were characterised by IR and UV spectroscopic(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)
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)
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)
DNA interactions of anticancer mononuclear Cu(2+), Co(2+), Zn(2+), and Ni(2+) complexes with the biologically active ligand clotrimazole (clotri) are reported. To fully characterize DNA binding modes for these complexes of the formulae [M(clotri)2Cl2]·nH2O (1-4), [M(clotri)2Br2]·nH2O (5,6), [M(clotri)3NO3]NO3·nH2O (9), and [M(clotri)3(NO3)2] (10), circular(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)
Acute treatment with 300 mg/kg of pigmented guinea pigs with streptomycin sulfate induces an elevation of endogenous fluorescence in vestibular ampullary cristae. Fluorescence accumulates in all compartments of the epithelium, i.e., vestibular sensory and supporting cells and nerve fibers of the stroma and it was very intense 1 and 12 hours after its(More)
