Abstract

The synthesis of Cu(II) complexes derived from Schiff base ligands obtainedby the condensation of 2-hydroxybenzaldehyde or terephtalic aldehyde with 4-amino-antipyrine (4-amino-2,3-dimethyl-1-phenyl-3-pyrazolin-5-one) is presented. The newlyprepared compounds were characterized by 1H-NMR, UV-VIS, IR and ESRspectroscopy. The determination of the antimicrobial activity of the ligands and of thecomplexes was carried out on samples of Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae,Acinetobacter boumanii, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus aureus and Candidasp. The qualitative and quantitative antimicrobial activity test results proved that all theprepared complexes are very active, especially against samples of Ps. aeruginosa, A.Boumanii, E. coli and S. aureus.
