Four novel cobalt(II), copper(II), nickel(II) and zinc(II) complexes of the fluoroquinolone antibiotic ciprofloxacin have been prepared. The compounds were characterized by IR, UV-Visible, molar conductivity and elemental analyses. In all of the complexes, the drug ligand, ciprofloxacin (CFL) was coordinated through two carbonyl oxygen atoms. Octahedral and(More)
Organometallic-based, 1,1'-diacetylferrocene-derived antibacterial and antifungal thiocarbohydrazone, carbohydrazone, thiosemicarbazone and semicarbazone have been prepared by condensing equimolar amount of 1,1'-diacetylferrocene with thiocarbohydrazide, carbohydrazide thiosemicarbazide and semicarbazide, respectively. These were used as ligands for the(More)
A series of isatins incorporating thiazole, thiadiazole, benzothiazole and p-toluene sulfonyl hydrazide moieties, along with their cobalt(II), copper(II), nickel(II) and zinc(II) metal complexes have been synthesized and characterized by elemental analyses, molar conductances, magnetic moments, IR, NMR and electronic spectral data. These compounds have been(More)
Kefzol (kzl), a beta-lactam antibiotic, possesses various donor sites for interaction with transition metal(II) ions [Co(II), Cu(II), Ni(II) and Zn(II)] to form complexes of the type [M(kzl)2]Cl2 and [M(kzl)Cl], with molar ratio of metal: ligand (M:L) of 1:2 and 1:1 respectively. These complexes were prepared and characterized by physicochemical and(More)
Herein, we report the design and calculated molecular properties of ten existing azo Schiff bases 5a–h and 7a, b. On the basis of a hypothetical antibacterial pharmacophore, the structures are designed to interact with Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria. The in vitro biological evaluation of these compounds allowed us to point out new potential(More)
Some Co(II), Cu(II), Ni(II) and Zn(II) complexes of antibacterial drug cephradine have been prepared and characterized by their physical, spectral and analytical data. Cephradine acts as bidentate and the complexes have compositions, [M(L)(2)X(2)] where [M = Co(II), Ni(II) and Zn(II), L = cephradine and X = Cl(2)] showing octahedral geometry, and [M(L)(2)](More)
A new series of oxovanadium(IV) complexes have been designed and synthesized with a new class of triazole Schiff bases derived from the reaction of 3,5-diamino-1,2,4-triazole with 2-hydroxy-1-naphthaldehyde, pyrrole-2-carboxaldehyde, pyridine-2-carboxaldehyde and acetyl pyridine-2-carboxaldehyde, respectively. Physical (magnetic susceptibility, molar(More)
Triazole derived Schiff bases and their metal complexes (cobalt(II), copper(II), nickel(II), and zinc(II)) have been prepared and characterized using IR, (1)H and (13)C NMR, mass spectrometry, magnetic susceptibility and conductivity measurements, and CHN analysis data. The structure of L(2), N-[(5-methylthiophen-2-yl)methylidene]-1H-1,2,4-triazol-3-amine,(More)
Some novel transition metal [Co(II), Cu(II), Ni(II) and Zn(II)] complexes of substituted pyridine Schiff-bases have been prepared and characterized by physical, spectral and analytical data. The synthesized Schiff-bases act as deprotonated tridentate for the complexation reaction with Co(II), Ni(II) and Zn(II) ions. The new compounds, possessing the general(More)
Keflin (kefl) interacts with Co(II), Cu(II), Ni(II) and Zn(II) metal ions leading to complexes of the type M(kefl)2Cl2 and M(kefl)Cl2, which have been characterized by physicochemical and spectroscopic methods. Magnetic moment, IR, electronic spectral and elemental analyses data suggest that keflin behaves tridentately forming octahedral or trigonal(More)
