Synthesis, structure elucidation, biological screening, molecular modeling and DNA binding of some Cu(II) chelates incorporating imines derived from amino acids
Three tridentate Schiff bases amino acids were prepared by direct condensation of 3-methoxysalicylaldehyde (MS) or 4-diethylaminosalicylaldehyde (DS) with α-amino acid ligands [l-phenylalanine (P), l-histidine (H) and DL-tryptophan (T)]. The prepared Schiff bases amino acids were investigated by melting points, elemental analysis, 1HNMR and 13CNMR, IR, UV–Vis spectra, conductivity and magnetic measurements analyses. Subsequently, copper was introduced and Cu(II) complexes formed. ... Read more
