Synthesis, antifungal activity and carbonic anhydrase inhibitory properties of Cu (II) Bis (3, 4 dimethoxybenzoate) bis (nicotinamide) dihydrate
MetadataShow full item record
The new 3,4-dimethoxybenzoate complex of Cu(II) with nicotinamide was synthesized and characterized by elemental analysis, FT-IR spectroscopic study, UV-Vis spectrophotometry and mass spectrometry. The thermal behavior of the complex was studied by simultaneous TG, DTG and DTA methods in static air atmosphere. The infrared spectral characteristics of the complex is also discussed. In this complex, all ligands are coordinated to the metal ion as monodendate ligands. The final decomposition products were found to be the respective metal oxide. As it is well known, metal complexes of biologically important ligands are sometimes more effective than the free ligands. In this study the new compound was synthesized due to its functional groups such as veratric acid and nikotin amide, which have known biological characteristics and effective in terms of both enzyme and antifungal properties from recent studies. Therefore, antifulgal activity and enzyme inhibition properties of this complex have been examined. © 2015 Bentham Science Publishers.
