Synthesis and Characterization of New Cr(III), Fe(III) and Cu(II) Complexes Incorporating Multi-Substituted Aryl Imidazole Ligand: Structural, DFT, DNA Binding, and Biological Implications
Designing new metal-based molecular antibiotics is an efficient approach to overcome the growing threat of antimicrobial resistance. In this paper, novel Cr(III), Fe(III) and Cu(II) complexes comprising substituted aryl imidazole ligand (MSEB), namely (2-(1-(2-hydroxyethyl)-4,5-diphenyl-1H-imidazole-2-yl)(4-bromophenol)) have been synthesized and characterized using infra-red (IR), ultraviolet-visible (UV-Vis) and 1H, 13C NMR spectroscopic techniques, together with elemental (CHN) and thermogravimetric analyses, molar conductance, and ...
