Abstract

A binuclear Zn(II) complex of formula {[Zn(BCPPO)H2O]•3C2H5OH}n (1) [H2BCPPO = Bis 4-carboxyphenyl phenyl phosphine oxide] has been synthesized and structurally characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction, Powder X-ray diffraction (PXRD), Thermogravimetric analysis (TG), Elemental analysis (EA) and Infrared spectroscopy (IR). As revealed by the single crystal X-ray diffraction, in the binuclear Zn(II) complex, two paddle-wheel-type Zn2 units were connected by four BCPPO ligands to form one-dimensional chains. Their antibacterial activity was evaluated by using a minimal bactericidal concentration (MBC) benchmark. The binuclear Zn(II) complex shows excellent and long-term antibacterial activity against Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus. In addition, the Photoluminescence properties of the binuclear Zn(II) complex was also investigated. View Full-Text
