Desighn, Characterization and Biological activity of new mixed ligand transition metal complexes of glutamine, glutaric and glutamic acid with nitrogen based ligands.
A new series of Cu(II), Co(II), Ni(II) and Fe(II) ternary complexes of glutamine, glutaric and glutamic acid with imidazole derivatives have been synthesized. The nature of bonding and the stereochemistry of the complexes have been deduced from elemental analyses, infrared, electronic spectra, conductivity measurements and thermogravimetric analysis. The structure of [Co(glu)(IMI)2] and [Fe(glu)(IMI)2(H2O)2] complexes was validated using quantum mechanics calculations ... Read more

Nano sized ternary Cu(II) complexes Encompassing Salicylaldehyde Derivatives and Amino Acids as an Effective Strategy for Antimicrobial Activity Improvement and DNA Interaction
A series of ternary Cu(II) complexes encompassing ONO donor Schiff base amino acid ligands were synthesized from condensation of 3–methoxysalicylaldehyde (MS) or 4-diethylamino salicylaldehyde (DS) with α-amino acids (L-phenylalanine (Phe), L-histidine (His), DL-tryptophan (Trp)) as primary ligand and 2, 4-bipridyl (DP) as secondary ligand. All the prepared compounds were characterized by melting points, decomposition temperatures, elemental analysis, UV-Vis, IR spectra, ... Read more

Removal of Cd(II) ions From Aqueous Solution using Nano sized Moringa Oleifera
This research aims to study the effect of nano sized _Moringa oleifera_ on adsorption of Cd2+ ions from aqueous solution. The investigated biosorbent was characterized by FTIR, SEM, TEM, XRD and EDS techniques. The influence of pH, temperature, adsorbent dosage, contact time, metal ion concentration and chemical treatment of biomass were investigated. The maximum capacity (qm) of Cd2+ ions biosorption ...

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
