Synthesis, Characterization, Modeling, and Antimicrobial Activity of FeIII, CoII, NiII, CuII, and ZnII Complexes Based on Tri‐substituted Imidazole Ligand
The reaction of the synthesized 2‐(4,5‐diphenyl‐1H‐imidazol‐2‐yl) phenol, (HL) ligand with FeIII, CoII, NiII, CuII, and ZnII ions at room temperature resulted in the formation of the five complexes; [Fe(L)2(H2O)(Cl)]·2H2O and [_M_(L)2)]·_n_H2O [_M_ = Co, Zn (_n_ = 2), Ni, Cu (_n_ = 1)]. The ligand and its complexes were characterized based on elemental analyses, spectral, magnetic and molar conductance measurements. ... Read more
