Complexes of 3dn Metal Ions with Thiosemicarbazones: Synthesis and Antimicrobial Activity
AbstractThe chelating behavior of the thiosemicarbazone derivatives of 2-hydroxy-8-R-tricyclo[184.108.40.206.2,7]tridecane-13-one (where R = H, CH3, C6H5) towards Co(II), Ni(II) and Cu(II) has been investigated by elemental analysis, molar conductivity measurements, UV-VIS, IR, ESR spectroscopy and thermal studies. It was deduced from the experiments performed that the ligands coordinate to metal ions in different ways – neutral bidentate or mononegative bidentate – depending on the nature of R. Also, if metal acetates are used instead of metal chlorides, the ligands coordinate in a mononegative bidentate fashion, regardless of the nature of R or the thiosemicarbazone type ligand. The antimicrobial activity of the ligands and of the complexes towards samples of Acinetobacter boumanii, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus and Pseudomonas aeruginosa was determined.
