Abstract

A series of new copper(II), cobalt(II), nickel(II), manganese(II), iron(III), and uranyl(VI) complexes of the Schiff base hydrazone 7-chloro-4-(benzylidene-hydrazo)quinoline (HL) were prepared and characterized. The Schiff base behaves as a monobasic bidentate ligand. Mononuclear complexes with the general composition [ML2(Cl)m(H2O)2(OEt)n]·xEtOH (M = Cu(II), Co(II), Ni(II), Mn(II), Fe(III) or UO2(VI); m and n = 0-1; x = 1-3) were obtained in the presence of Li(OH) as a deprotonating agent. The nature of bonding and the stereochemistry of the complexes have been deduced from elemental analyses, infrared, electronic spectra, magnetic susceptibility and conductivity measurements. An octahedral geometry was suggested for all the complexes except the Cu(II) and UO2(VI) ones. The Cu(II) complex has a square-planar geometry distorted towards tetrahedral, while the UO2(VI) complex displays its favored heptacoordination. The Schiff base ligand, HL, and its complexes were tested against one strain Gram +ve bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus), Gram -ve bacteria (Escherichia coli), and Fungi (Candida albicans). The prepared metal complexes exhibited higher antibacterial activities than the parent ligand and their biopotency is discussed.
