Development, structural investigation, DNA binding, antimicrobial screening and anticancer activities of two novel quari-dentate VO(II) and Mn (II) mononuclear complexes
Two novel VO(II) and Mn(II) imine chelates derived from the condensation of o-phenylenediamine (PN) with 3-ethoxysalicylaldehyde(ES) were synthesized. The prepared ESPN imine ligand and its chelates were investigated _via_ different analytical and physicochemical tools. Correlation between all the obtained results, the parent ligand behaves as tetra-dentate ONNO ligand and coordinates to Mn(II) and VO(II), in octahedral and square pyramidal geometry, ... Read more
