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 ... إقراء المزيد
