Bis (3-((E)-1-(2-hydroxyphenyl) ethylideneamino) phenyl) methanone has been synthesized in this paper and its structure was confirmed by 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR, IR and Mass spectra. Its AM1 and B3LYP/6-31G* calculations to characterize the physical properties of this molecule has been also presented. Finally, the antifungal and antibacterial activities of this derivative have been evaluated.

Particular attention has recently been paid to the synthesis and study of the diimino tetradentate Schiff bases and their complexes. This is due to their uses as biological models in understanding the structure of biomolecules and biological processes. The crucial role of Schiff bases in the biological function of bacteriorhodospin is proven. The retinal chromophore is bound covalently to the protein via a protonated Schiff base .Schiff-base ligands derived from 2-hydroxyacetophenone have been used as complexing agents . In these ligands the electronic, steric and geometric effect of a methyl group on an imine carbon on asymmetric catalytic reactions can be investigated . Salen type complexes are very well studied because this type of Schiff base ligands present suitable biometric properties that can mimic the structural feature of the active site.Based on these facts we decided to synthesize a new bis Schiff base derived from 2-hydroxyacetophenone.
Results and Discussion:
3,3'-Diaminobenzophenone 1 (0.212g, 1.00mmol) and 2-Hydroxyacetophenone 2 (0.272g, 2.00mmol) were dissolved in 10 mL of warm ethanol. The reaction mixture was refluxed for 10h and allowed to stand aside. The crystals were filtered off and washed with ethanol. The pure Schiff base 3 was recrystalized from ethanol as light yellow crystals. The IR spectrum showed the characteristic absorption of Schiff base C=N at 1612 cm-1. The 1H-NMR spectrum showed a multiplet for aromatic protons at 6.76-7.85 ppm. The OH group appeared as a singlet at 14.37 ppm. The 13C-NMR spectrum showed C=N group at 162.23, C=O group at 196.97 and the CH3 group at (18.48, 30.61). The mass spectrum showed the (M+1) peak at 449. The yield was 57%.

All calculations in this work where carried out with the AM1 level of theory using the GAUSSIAN 03  suite of programs. In addition we have carried very intense B3LYP/6-31G* optimizations and frequency calculations. More information about these methods is available elsewhere . Figure 1 presents the optimized structure of the molecule with bond lengths and bond angles shown as well as the theoretical IR vibrational spectrum.
Table 1 shows the thermodynamic properties for the where T (temperature in K), S (entropy in J mol-1 K-1), Cp (heat molecule in Figure 1 capacity at constant pressure in kJ mol-1 K-1), and ΔH=H° - H°298.15 (enthalpy content, in kJ mol-1), T1=100 K, T2=298.15 K, and T3=1000 K calculated AM1 and B3LYP/6-31G* frequencies. The fits were performed according to the equations implemented by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) . These equations have been very good at predicting physical properties of various molecules, as we have tested in the past [6,7,8,9,10].
Antibacterial and antifungal tests
Derivative 3 was evaluated for its in vitro biological properties against human pathogens . This compound was found to possess no antifungal activities against S. cerevisiae (ATCC 28383) and no antibacterial activities against Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria even if a slight antibacterial activity against S. aureus (CIP 4.83) at a concentration of 100 µg/mL has been noticed (Table 2).
