A Robust Synthesis of Magnetite Nanoparticles of Desired Size and the Functionalization Thereof
The synthesis of magnetite nanoparticles is an area of permanent interest in view of their high technological applications including Biomedicine and Biosensing. These nanoparticles are used as enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) agents, for biological separation and magnetic drug delivery systems, and magnetic hyperthermia treatment [1]. Magnetite nanoparticles of about 20 nm in diameter and low polydispersity were prepared heating ... Read more

Synthesis, Spectral Characterization, DNA Interaction, Antimicrobial  and Anticancer Activities  of Some Tri- and Tetra-dentate imine VO(II) Complexes
The new imine ligands were synthesized by the condensation reaction between 2-hydroxynaphthaldehyde or 3-ethoxysalicylaldehyde and _o_-phenylenediamine s in 1:1 molar ratio. The ligands react with vanadyl acetylacetonate in 1:1 molar ratio to give distorted and square pyramidal geometry for tri- and tetra-dentate imine complexes, respectively. All the complexes are non– hygroscopic in nature and stable to the atmosphere. The synthesized ... Read more

Green synthesis of some Heterocyclic rings using CoFe2O4 Magnetic Nanoparticles as Efficient and Reusable Catalyst
A robust synthesis for magnetic CoFe2O4 nanoparticles via hydrothermal technique was investigated. The prepared magnetic nanoparticles were characterized by powder x-ray, SEM, TEM, HR-TEM, EDX, TGA, IR analysis and and vibrating sample magnetometry. Based on the obtained data, the prepared powder composed of ultrafine particles in nanometer size range with high homogeneous spherical shape and elemental composition. Moreover, the prepared ...

Kinetic Screening for the Acid‐Catalyzed Hydrolysis of Some Hydrophobic Fe(II) Schiff Base Amino Acid Chelates and Reactivity Trends in the Presence of Alkali Halide and Surfactant
Kinetics of acid‐catalyzed hydrolysis of some high‐spin Fe(II) Schiff base amino acid complexes were followed spectrophotometrically at 298 K under pseudo–first‐order conditions. The studied ligands were derived from the condensation of 5‐bromosalicylaldehyde with different four amino acids (phenylalanine, aspartic acid, histidine, and arginine). The acid hydrolysis reaction was studied in aqueous media and in the presence of different concentrations of ... Read more

Crystal structure of (E)-1-{[(3,5-di­methyl­phen­yl)imino]­meth­yl}naphthalen-2-ol
The title compound, C19H17NO, has an _E_ conformation about the N=C bond. The mol­ecule is relatively planar, with the benzene ring and naphthalene ring plane being inclined to one another by 4.28 (10)°. There is an intra­molecular O-HN hydrogen bond generating an _S_(6) ring motif. In the crystal, mol­ecules are linked _via_ C-HO hydrogen bonds, forming chains propagating along [100]. ... Read more

Tailoring, physicochemical characterization, antibacterial and DNA binding mode studies of Cu(II) Schiff bases amino acid bioactive agents incorporating 5-bromo-2-hydroxybenzaldehyde
Five novel Cu(II) complexes derived from the condensation between 5-bromosalicylaldehyde (bs) and α-amino acids (L-alanine, l-phenylalanine, L-aspartic acid, L-histidine and L-arginine) were synthesized and characterized by their elemental analyses, thermogravimetric analysis, IR, mass and electronic spectra, conductance and magnetic measurements.

A review on versatile applications of transition metal complexes incorporating Schiff bases
Schiff bases and their complexes are versatile compounds synthesized from the condensation of an amino compound with carbonyl compounds and widely used for industrial purposes and also exhibit a broad range of biological activities including antifungal, antibacterial, antimalarial, antiproliferative, anti-inflammatory, antiviral, and antipyretic properties. Many Schiff base complexes show excellent catalytic activity in various reactions and in the presence of ... Read more

CuFe2O4 nanoparticles: an efficient heterogeneous magnetically separable catalyst for synthesis of some novel propynyl-1H-imidazoles derivatives
The non-toxic magnetic CuFe2O4 nanoparticles have been synthesized, characterized, and used as an efficient catalyst for synthesis of new derivatives for 1,2,4,5-tetrasubstituted imidazoles in excellent yields. The synthesized compounds work-up easy and purification of products are performed without chromatographic methods. The catalyst can be recovered for the subsequent reactions and reused without any appreciable loss. Read more

Electrochemical and theoretical quantum approaches on the inhibition of C1018 carbon steel corrosion in acidic medium  using some newly  phenolic Schiff bases compounds
Two novel Schiff bases, 5-bromo-2-[(_E_)-(pyridin-3-ylimino)methyl]phenol (HBSAP) and 5-bromo-2-[(E)-(quinolin-8-ylimino)methyl]phenol (HBSAQ) have been synthesized.
