Three novel Ni(II), VO(II) and Cr(III) mononuclear complexes: Synthesis, structural characterization, DNA interaction, antimicrobial evaluation and anticancer activity
Three novel Cr(III),VO(II) and Ni(II) imine complexes derived from the condensation of 2‐aminophenol (AP) with 2‐hydroxynaphthaldehyde (HN) were synthesized. The prepared HNAP imine ligand and its complexes were investigated via various physicochemical tools. The results suggest that the parent ligand behaves as a dibasic tridentate ONO ligand, when coordinated to Cr(III) in octahedral and to Ni(II) in tetrahedral geometry. In ... Read more

Design and nonlinear optical properties (NLO) using DFT approach of new chelates for DNA interaction, antimicrobial, anticancer activities and molecular docking studies
In recent years, metals based antitumor complexes have played a vital role in chemotherapy. Therefore, in this study, some new imine Cr(III), VO(II) and Ni(II) complexes incorporating ESAP imine ligand (2-Ethoxy-6-((2-hydroxy-phenylimino)-methyl)-phenol were designed and synthesized. The investigated complexes were fully characterized by micro analysis, infrared, electronic spectra, thermal analysis(TGA), conductivity as well as magnetic susceptibility measurements. Moreover, the stability constants ... Read more

The present study was conducted to synthesis of some new imine Cr(III), VO(II), Mn(II) and Ni(II) complexes derived from the condensation of 2-amino phenol with 2-hydroxynapthaldehyde were synthesized. The prepared HNPN imine ligand was analyzed by its melting point, IR, 1H NMR and 13C NMR spectroscopies. The investigated HNPN imine complexes were characterized by elemental analysis, FT IR, UV–vis and ... Read more

Synthesis, characterization, DFT calculations and biological studies of Mn(II), Fe(II), Co(II) and Cd(II) complexes based on a tetradentate ONNO donor Schiff base ligand
This study highlights synthesis and characterization of a tetradentate ONNO Schiff base ligand namely (1, 1′- (pyridine-2, 3-dimethyliminomethyl) naphthalene-2, 2′-diol) and hereafter denotes as “HNDAP″ and selected metal complexes including Mn(II), Fe(II), Co(II) and Cd(II) as a central metal. HNDAP was synthesized from 1:2 M ratio condensation of 2, 3-diaminopyridine and 2- hydroxy-1-naphthaldhyde, respectively. The stoichiometric ratios of the prepared ... Read more

Ni(II) and Cu(II) complexes : synthesis, spectroscopic characterization, theoretical calculations, DNA interaction and antimicrobial studies
A novel Schiff base, namely _Z_‐3‐((2‐((_E_)‐(2‐hydroxynaphthyl)methylene)amino)‐5‐nitrophenylimino)‐1,3‐dihydroindin‐2‐one, was synthesized from the condensation of 2‐hydroxy‐1‐naphthaldehyde and isatin with 4‐nitro‐_o_‐phenylenediamine. It was structurally characterized on the basis of 1H NMR, 13C NMR and infrared spectra and elemental analyses. In addition, Ni(II) and Cu(II) complexes of the Schiff base ligand were prepared. The nature of bonding and the stereochemistry of the investigated complexes were ... Read more
