Hydrothermal preparation and characterization of ZnFe2O4 magnetic nanoparticles as  catalyst for the synthesis of multi‐substituted imidazoles
Nanoparticles are key focus of research for a wide range of novel applications. As such, ZnFe2O4 magnetic nanoparticles were synthesized hydrothermally and characterized via scanning and transmission electron microscopies, powder X‐ray diffraction, energy‐dispersive X‐ray and infrared spectroscopies, thermogravimetric analysis and magnetic measurements. They were used as a robust catalyst for the synthesis of a series of biologically active multi‐substituted imidazoles ... Read more

Synthesis, theoretical investigations, biocidal screening, DNA binding, in vitro cytotoxicity and molecular docking of novel Cu (II), Pd (II) and Ag (I) complexes
Three new Cu(II), Pd(II) and Ag(I) complexes with bi-dentate Schiff base ligand "HL" namely 2-[(4-Chloro-benzylidene)-amino]-phenol were synthesized. The stoichiometric ratios and physicochemical properties of these complexes were determined using elemental analyses (C, H, and N), magnetic measurements, IR, UV-Vis spectra, molar conductivity and thermal analyses. The results revealed that the metal ions coordinated with ligand HL through azomethine nitrogen and ... Read more
