Some new nano-sized Fe(II), Cd(II) and Zn(II) Schiff base complexes : Sonochemical synthesis, characterization, DNA interaction, in vitro antimicrobial and anticancer activities
The complexes of Fe(II), Cd(II) and Zn(II) with Schiff base derived from 2-amino-3-hydroxypyridine and 3-methoxysalicylaldehyde have been prepared. Melting points, decomposition temperatures, Elemental analyses, TGA, conductance measurements, infrared (IR) and UV–Visible spectrophotometric studies were utilized in characterizing the compounds. The UV–Visible spectrophotometric analysis revealed 1:1 (metal-ligand) stoichiometry for the three complexes. In addition to, the prepared complexes have been used ... Read more
