    Novel aromatic embedded Schiff bases have been synthesized in ionic liquid [bmim]Br and evaluated in vitro for their acetylcholinesterase (AChE) and butyrylcholinesterase (BChE) enzymes inhibitory activities. Among the newly synthesized compounds, 5f, 5h and 7j displayed higher AChE enzyme inhibitory activities than standard drug, galanthamine, with IC50 values of 1.88, 2.05 and 2.03?M, respectively. Interestingly, all the compounds except for compound 5c displayed higher BChE inhibitories than standard with IC50 values ranging from 3.49 to 19.86?M. Molecular docking analysis for 5f and 7j possessing the most potent AChE and BChE inhibitory activities, disclosed their binding interaction templates to the active site of AChE and BChE enzymes, respectively.

    We have synthesized a novel series of Schiff bases by condensation of 4-aminoantipyrine and various aromatic aldehydes followed by reaction with thiosemicarbazide. These thiosemicarbazones are potential ligands toward transition metal ions. The reaction of copper(II) salts with 4[N-(benzalidene)amino]antipyrinethiosemicarbazone (BAAPTS), 4[N-(4?-methoxybenzalidene) amino] antipyrinethiosemicarbozone (MBAAPTS), 4[N-(4?-dimethylamino benzalidene) amino] antipyrinethiosemicarbazone (DABAAPTS), and 4[N-(cinnamalidene) amino] antipyrinethiosemicarbazone (CAAPTS) resulted in the formation of solid complexes with the general composition CuX2 · (H2O)(L)(X = Cl, Br,NO3,NCS, or CH3COO; L = BAAPTS, MBAAPTS, DABAAPTS, or CAAPTS). These complexes were characterized through elemental analysis, molecular weight, electrical conductance, infrared, electronic spectra, and magnetic susceptibilities at room temperature. Copper(II) complexes with BAAPTS and MBAAPTS were screened for antibacterial and antifungal properties and have exhibited potential activity. Thermal stabilities of two representative complexes were also investigated. PMID:17497009

    The synthesis and the characterization of new dinuclear copper(II) compounds of general formula [(L(a-d))(2)Cu(2)(?-N-N)](ClO(4))(2) (1-6) with either neutral aliphatic diamine (N-N = piperazine, pip) or aromatic diimine (N-N = 4,4'-bipyridine, 4,4'-bipy) linker are reported. The copper ligands L(-) (L(a-) = (E)-2-((2-aminoethylimino)methyl)phenolate, L(b-) = (E)-2-((2-aminopropylimino)methyl)-phenolate, L(c-) = (E)-2-((2-aminoethylimino)methyl)4-nitrophenolate, L(d-) = (E)-2-((2-aminoethylimino)methyl)4-methoxyphenolate) are NNO tridentate Schiff bases derived from the monocondensation of a substituted salicylaldehyde 5-G-salH (G = NO(2), H, OMe) with ethylenediamine, en, or 1,3-propylenediamine, tn. The crystal structures of compounds [(L(a))(2)Cu(2)(MeOH)(2)(?-4,4'-bipy)](ClO(4))(2) (1·2MeOH), [(L(b))(2)Cu(2)(MeOH)(2)(?-4,4'-bipy)](ClO(4))(2) (2·2MeOH), [(L(d))(2)Cu(2)(?-4,4'-bipy)](ClO(4))(2) (4), [(L(a))(2)Cu(2)(?-pip)](ClO(4))(2) (5) and [(L(b))(2)Cu(2)(?-pip)](ClO(4))(2) (6) have been determined, revealing the preferred (e-e)-chair conformation of the bridging piperazine in compounds 5 and 6. The presence of hydrogen-bond-mediated intermolecular interactions, that involve the methanol molecules, yields dimers of dinuclear units for 1·2MeOH, and infinite zig-zag chains for 2·2MeOH. The temperature dependences of the magnetic susceptibilities ?(M)(T) for all compounds were measured, indicating the presence of antiferromagnetic Cu-Cu exchange. For the compounds 2-4 with 4,4'-bipy, the coupling constants J are around -1 cm(-1), while in compound 1 no interaction could be detected. The compounds 5 and 6 with piperazine display higher Cu-Cu magnetic interactions through the ?-bonding backbone of the bridging molecule, with J around -8 cm(-1), and the coupling is favoured by the (e-e)-chair conformation of the diamine ring. The non-aromatic, but shorter, linker piperazine gives rise to stronger Cu-Cu antiferromagnetic couplings than the aromatic, but longer, 4,4'-bipyridine. In the latter case, the rotation along the C-C bond between the two pyridyl rings and the consequent non co-planarity of the two copper coordination planes play an important role in determining the magnetic communication. EPR studies reveal that the dinuclear species are not stable in solution, yielding the solvated [(L)Cu(MeOH)](+) and the mononuclear [(L)Cu(N-N)](+) species; it appears that the limited solubility of the dinuclear compounds is responsible for their isolation in the solid state.

    An EtOH solution of 3-ketobutanehydrazide and salicylhydrazide on refluxing in equimolar ratio forms the corresponding Schiff base, LH3 (1). The latter reacts with Mn(II), Co(II), Ni(II), Cu(II), Zn(II), Cd(II), Zr(OH)2(IV), MoO2(VI), and UO2(VI) ions in equimolar ratio and forms the corresponding coordination compounds, [M(LH)(MeOH)3] (2, M = Mn, Co, Ni), [Cu(LH)]2 (3), [M'(LH)(MeOH)] (4, M' = Zn, Cd), [Zr(OH)2(LH)(MeOH)2] (5), [MoO2(LH)(MeOH)] (6), and [UO2(LH)(MeOH)] (7). The coordination compounds have been characterized on the basis of elemental analyses, molar conductance, spectral (IR, reflectance, (1)H NMR, ESR) studies, and magnetic susceptibility measurements. They are nonelectrolytes in DMSO. The coordination compounds, except 3, are monomers in diphenyl. They are active against gram-positive bacteria (S. aureus, B. subtilis), gram-negative bacteria (E. coli, P. aeruginosa), and yeast (S. cerevisiae, C. albicans). 1 acts as a dibasic tridentate ONO donor ligand in 2-7 coordinating through its both enolic O and azomethine N atoms. The coordination compounds 2 and 3 are paramagnetic, while rest of the compounds are diamagnetic. A square-planar structure to 3, a tetrahedral structure to 4, an octahedral structure to 2, 6, and 7, and a pentagonal bipyramidal structure to 5 are proposed. PMID:24198736

    The redox entity comprising two Schiff base groups attached to a phenyl ring (-N=CH-Ar-HC=N-) is reported to be active for sodium-ion storage (Ar=aromatic group). Electroactive polymeric Schiff bases were produced by reaction between non-conjugated aliphatic or conjugated aromatic diamine block with terephthalaldehyde unit. Crystalline polymeric Schiff bases are able to electrochemically store more than one sodium atom per azomethine group at potentials between 0 and 1.5?V versus Na(+)/Na. The redox potential can be tuned through conjugation of the polymeric chain and by electron injection from donor substituents in the aromatic rings. Reversible capacities of up to 350?mA?h?g(-1) are achieved when the carbon mixture is optimized with Ketjen Black. Interestingly, the "reverse" configuration (-CH=N-Ar-N=HC-) is not electrochemically active, though isoelectronic. PMID:24757125

The zinc complexes of these sulfonamides have also been obtained. The new derivatives and their Zn(II) complexes were investigated for the inhibition of four physiologically relevant isozymes of carbonic anhydrase (CA, EC 4.2.1.1): the cytosolic isoforms I and II, as well as the tumor-associated, transmembrane isozymes CA IX and XII. Except for the sulfaguanidine-derived compounds which were devoid of activity against all isozymes, the other sulfonamides and their metal complexes showed interesting inhibitory activity. Against isozyme CA I, the inhibition constants were in the range of 13-100 nM, against isozyme CA II in the range of 1.9-102 nM, against isozyme CA IX in the range of 6.3-48nM, and against CA XII in the range of 5.9-50nM. Generally, the formyl-chromone derived compounds were better CA inhibitors as compared to the corresponding 6-methyl-chromone derivatives, and for the simple, benzenesulfonamide derivatives activity increased with an increase of the spacer from sulfanilamide to homosulfanilamide and 4-aminoethylbenzenesulfonamide derivatives, respectively. Some of these compounds may show applications for the development of therapies targeting hypoxic tumors in which CA IX and XII are often highly overexpressed. PMID:15908204

    Ruthenium(II) hydrazone Schiff base complexes of the type [RuCl(CO)(B)(L)] (were B = PPh 3, AsPh 3 or Py; L = hydrazone Schiff base ligands) were synthesized from the reactions of hydrazone Schiff base ligand (obtained from isonicotinoylhydrazide and different hydroxy aldehydes) with [RuHCl(CO)(EPh 3) 2(B)] (where E = P or As; B = PPh 3, AsPh 3 or Py) in 1:1 molar ratio. All the new complexes have been characterized by analytical and spectral (FT-IR, electronic, 1H, 13C and 31P NMR) data. They have been tentatively assigned an octahedral structure. The synthesized complexes have exhibited catalytic activity for oxidation of benzyl alcohol to benzaldehyde and cyclohexanol to cyclohexanone in the presence of N-methyl morpholine N-oxide (NMO) as co-oxidant. They were also found to catalyze the transfer hydrogenation of aliphatic and aromatic ketones to alcohols in KOH/Isopropanol.

    This review contains extensive application of anion sensing ability of salicylidene type Schiff bases and their reduced forms having various substituents with respect to phenolic sbnd OH group. Some of these molecular systems behave as receptor for recognition or sensing of various anions in organic or aqueous-organic binary solvent mixture as well as in the solid supported test kits. Development of Schiff base or reduced Schiff base receptors for anion recognition event is commonly based on the theory of hydrogen bonding interaction or deprotonation of phenolic -OH group. The process of charge transfer (CT) or inhibition of excited proton transfer (ESIPT) or followed by photo-induced electron transfer (PET) lead to naked-eye color change, UV-vis spectral change, chemical shift in the NMR spectra and fluorescence spectral modifications. In this review we have tried to discuss about the anion sensing properties of Schiff base or reduced Schiff base receptors.

    The use of lanthanide-based catalysts to facilitate organic transformations is currently an area of rapid growth, in particular the application of lanthanide alkoxide and triflate derivatives as effective Lewis-acidic catalysts for Michael additions and aldol reactions, and bis-pentamethylcyclopentadienyl derivatives as extremely active catalysts for hydrogenation and enantioselective hydroamination reactions. We have begun an investigation into the use of lanthanide complexes containing chiral alkoxide ligands as Lewis-acidic catalysts for enantioselective organic reactions. Since the large ionic radii of the lanthanide +III metal centers can often lead to oligomerization of simple alkoxide species, we have also examined the use of multidentate, chelating Schiff base ligands to provide an asymmetric environment about a lanthanide metal center. Structural investigations of the catalysts will be described, together with the use of these catalysts in enantioselective Meerwein-Ponndorf-Verley reduction of ketones and nitroaldol reactions.

The electrochemical and photoluminescence properties of the Schiff bases were investigated in the different conditions. The compounds L1 and L2 show the reversible redox processes at some potentials. The sensor properties of the Schiff bases were examined and color changes were observed upon addition of the metal cations, such as Hg(II), Cu(II), Co(II) and Al(III). The Schiff base compounds show the bathochromic shift from 545 to 585 nm. The single crystals of the compounds (L1) and (L2) were obtained from the methanol solution and characterized structurally by the X-ray crystallography technique. The molecule L2 is centrosymmetric whereas the L1 has no crystallographically imposed molecular symmetry. However, the molecular structures for these compounds are quite similar, differing principally in the conformation about methoxy groups and the dihedral angle between the two aromatic rings and diamine naphthalene.

    The article reports on the synthesis and crystallographic and theoretical studies on various heterocyclic derivatives of ortho-hydroxy Schiff bases. The prevailing of one of the two (enolimine - OH and ketoamine - NH) tautomeric forms has been stated in studied compounds depending on the substitutes in heterocyclic formation, the nitrogen and carbon atoms of the imine group. A specific situation has been shown in (1E)-1-(5-chloro-2-hydroxy-3-nitrophenyl)ethanone oxime compound. The potentials on the proton transfer of the hydrogen bridges in these compounds have been found out. Grounded on the obtained potential curves the influence of the protonation on nitrogen in the pyridoxal derivative of the studied ortho-hydroxy Schiff bases has been analysed. The most efficient method of the impact (by means of various substitutes) on the intramolecular tautomeric equilibrium in ortho-hydroxy Schiff bases has been presented.

    Semiempirical molecular orbital calculations are combined with 13C NMR chemical shifts to localize the counterion in the retinal binding site of vertebrate rhodopsin. Charge densities along the polyene chain are calculated for an 11-cis-retinylidene protonated Schiff base (11-cis-RPSB) chromophore with 1) a chloride counterion at various distances from the Schiff base nitrogen, 2) one or two chloride counterions at different positions along the retinal chain from C10 to C15 and at the Schiff base nitrogen, and 3) a carboxylate counterion out of the retinal plane near C12. Increasing the distance of the negative counterion from the Schiff base results in an enhancement of alternating negative and positive partial charge on the even- and odd-numbered carbons, respectively, when compared to the 11-cis-RPSB chloride model compound. In contrast, the observed 13C NMR data of rhodopsin exhibit downfield chemical shifts from C8 to C13 relative to the 11-cis-RPSB.Cl corresponding to a net increase of partial positive or decrease of partial negative charge at these positions (Smith, S. O., I. Palings, M. E. Miley, J. Courtin, H. de Groot, J. Lugtenburg, R. A. Mathies, and R. G. Griffin. 1990. Biochemistry. 29:8158-8164). The anomalous changes in charge density reflected in the rhodopsin NMR chemical shifts can be qualitatively modeled by placing a single negative charge above C12. The calculated fit improves when a carboxylate counterion is used to model the retinal binding site. Inclusion of water in the model does not alter the fit to the NMR data, although it is consistent with observations based on other methods. These data constrain the location and the orientation of the Glu113 side chain, which is known to be the counterion in rhodopsin, and argue for a strong interaction centered at C12 of the retinylidene chain.

    Glu-113 serves as the retinylidene Schiff base counterion in bovine rhodopsin. Purified mutant rhodopsin pigments were prepared in which Glu-113 was replaced individually by Gln (E113Q), Asp (E113D), Asn (E113N), or Ala (E113A). E113Q, E113N, and E113A existed as pH-dependent equilibrium mixtures of unprotonated and protonated Schiff base (PSB) forms. The Schiff base pKa values determined by spectrophotometric titration were 6.00 (E113Q), 6.71 (E113N), and 5.70 (E113A). Thus, mutation of Glu-113 markedly reduced the Schiff base pKa. The addition of NaCl promoted the formation of a PSB in E113Q and E113A. An exogenously supplied solute anion replaced Glu-113 to compensate for the positive charge of the PSB in these mutants. The lambda max values of the PSB forms of the mutants in NaCl were 496 nm (E113Q), 506 nm (E113A), 510 nm (E113D), and 520 nm (E113N). To evaluate the effect of different types of solute anions on lambda max values, mutants were prepared in sodium salts of halides, perchlorate, and a series of carboxylic acids of various sizes and acidity. The lambda max values of E113Q and E113A depended on the solute anion present and ranged from 488 nm to 522 nm for E113Q and from 486 nm to 528 nm for E113A. The solute anion affected the lambda max values of E113N and E113D to lesser degrees. The reactivities of the mutants to hydroxylamine were also studied. Whereas rhodopsin was stable to hydroxylamine in the dark, E113N reacted slowly and E113Q reacted rapidly under these conditions, indicating structural differences in the Schiff base environments. The lambda max values and solute anion dependencies of the Glu-113 mutants indicate that interactions between Schiff base and its counterion play a significant role in determining the lambda max of rhodopsin.

    One hypothesis of the origin of pre-modern forms of life is that the original replicating molecules were specific polypeptides which acted as templates for the assembly of poly-Schiff bases complementary to the template, and that these polymers were then oxidized to peptide linkages, probably by photo-produced oxidants. A double cycle of such anti-parallel complementary replication would yield the original peptide polymer. If this model were valid, the Schiff base between an N-acyl alpha mino aldehyde and an amino acid should yield a dipeptide in aqueous solution in the presence of an appropriate oxidant. In the present study it is shown that the substituted dipeptide, N-acetyl-tyrosyl-tyrosine, is produced in high yield in aqueous solution at pH 9 through the action of H2O2 on the Schiff-base complex between N-acetyl-tyrosinal and tyrosine and that a great variety of N-acyl amino acids are formed from amino acids and aliphatic aldehydes under similar conditions.

We examined the in vitro and in vivo formation of Schiff bases of AG with pyridoxal 5?-phosphate (PLP) and pyridoxal (PL). AG reacted in vitro far more rapidly with PLP to form a Schiff base (PLP–AG) than with PL to form another Schiff base (PL–AG).

    As the pathogens soon develop resistance to the existing antibiotics, the demand for new and more effective anti-microbial agents is a continuous phenomenon. In this paper we are reporting synthesis and spectral data of eight Schiff bases of salicylaldehyde with different amines, and evaluation of their anti-microbial activities against different bacterial strains. The bases were synthesized by reflux method, and their structures were determined based FT-IR, (1)H-NMR, (13)C-NMR and Mass spectrometric data. The Schiff bases synthesized included 2-{[(Z)-(2-hydroxyphenyl) methylidene] amino}benzoicacid (SB1), 4-{[(Z)-(2-hydroxyphenyl) methylidene] amino} benzoic acid (SB2),2-[(naphthalene-2-ylimino)methyl] phenol(SB3),2-2'-[benzene-1,4-diylbis(nitrilomethylylidene)]diphenol (SB4), 2-2'-[benzene-1,2-diylbis (nitrile-(E)-methylylidene)]diphenol (SB5), 2-[(2-phenylhydrazineylidene)methyl]phenol (SB6), 2-2'-[ethene-1,2-diylbis(iminomethanediyl)]diphenol (SB7) and 2-[(Z)-(phenylimino)methyl]phenol (SB8). The anti-microbial activities of synthesized Schiff bases were determined in terms of zones of inhibition and minimum inhibitory concentrations (MICs). All the bases showed moderate to good activities against all the tested microorganisms. The MICs of most compounds were 100-200?g/mL against different microorganisms. However, it was 50?g/mL for SB1 against P. aeruginosa (1), SB3 against P. aurantiaca, P. aeruginosa (1), E. coli (2), S. typhi (2) and C. freundii, SB4against E. coli (2), S. typhi (1) and S. maltophilia, SB5 against K. pneumoniae and S. typhi (2), SB6 against P. aeruginosa (3) and C. freundii, SB7 against E. cloacae and A. lipoferum, and SB8 against E. coli (2). Considerably active bases may prove to be potential candidates for future antibiotic drugs. PMID:25730802

  9. Evidence for a bound water molecule next to the retinal Schiff base in bacteriorhodopsin and rhodopsin: a resonance Raman study of the Schiff base hydrogen/deuterium exchange.

    The retinal chromophores of both rhodopsin and bacteriorhodopsin are bound to their apoproteins via a protonated Schiff base. We have employed continuous-flow resonance Raman experiments on both pigments to determine that the exchange of a deuteron on the Schiff base with a proton is very fast, with half-times of 6.9 +/- 0.9 and 1.3 +/- 0.3 ms for rhodopsin and bacteriorhodopsin, respectively. When these results are analyzed using standard hydrogen-deuteron exchange mechanisms, i.e., acid-, base-, or water-catalyzed schemes, it is found that none of these can explain the experimental results. Because the exchange rates are found to be independent of pH, the deuterium-hydrogen exchange can not be hydroxyl (or acid-)-catalyzed. Moreover, the deuterium-hydrogen exchange of the retinal Schiff base cannot be catalyzed by water acting as a base because in that case the estimated exchange rate is predicted to be orders of magnitude slower than that observed. The relatively slow calculated exchange rates are essentially due to the high pKa values of the Schiff base in both rhodopsin (pKa > 17) and bacteriorhodopsin (pKa approximately 13.5). We have also measured the deuterium-hydrogen exchange of a protonated Schiff base model compound in aqueous solution. Its exchange characteristics, in contrast to the Schiff bases of the pigments, is pH-dependent and consistent with the standard base-catalyzed schemes. Remarkably, the water-catalyzed exchange, which has a half-time of 16 +/- 2 ms and which dominates at pH 3.0 and below, is slower than the exchange rate of the Schiff base in rhodopsin and bacteriorhodopsin. Thus, there are two anomalous results, the inconsistency of the observed hydrogen exchange rates of retinal Schiff base in the two pigments with those predicted from the standard exchange schemes and the enhancement of the rate of hydrogen exchange in the two proteins over the model Schiff base in aqueous solution. We suggest that these results are explained by the presence of a structural water molecule (or molecules) at the retinal binding sites of the two pigments, quite close, probably-hydrogen bonded, to the Schiff base proton. In this case, the rate of exchange can be faster than that found for the model compound due to an "effective water concentration" near the Schiff base that is increased from that found in aqueous solution.

    Artificial bacteriorhodopsin pigments based on synthetic retinal analogues carrying an electron-withdrawing CF3 substituent group were prepared. The effects of CF3 on the spectra, photocycles, and Schiff base pKa values of the pigments were analyzed. A reduction of 5 units in the pKa of the Schiff base is observed when the CF3 substituent is located at the C-13 polyene position, in the vicinity of the protonated Schiff base nitrogen. The results lead to the unambiguous characterization of the (direct) titration of the Schiff base in bacteriorhodopsin and to the conclusion that the deprotonation rate of the Schiff base during the photocycle (i.e., the generation of the M412 intermediate) is determined by a structural change in the protein.

    Hydrazone hesperetin Schiff base (HHSB) - N-[(±)-[5,7-dihydroxy-2-(3-hydroxy-4-methoxy-phenyl)chroman-4-ylidene]amino]benzamide has been synthesized and its crystal structure was determined. This compound was used for the formation of Cu(II) complexes in solid state and in solution which were characterized using different spectroscopic methods. The analyses of potentiometric titration curves revealed that monomeric and dimeric complexes of Cu(II) are formed above pH7. The ESI-MS (electrospray ionization-mass spectrometry) spectra confirmed their formation. The EPR and UV-visible spectra evidenced the involvement of oxygen and nitrogen atoms in Cu(II) coordination. Hydrazone hesperetin Schiff base can show keto-enol tautomerism and coordinate Cu(II) in the keto (O(-), N, Oket) and in the enolate form (O(-), N, O(-)enol). The semi-empirical molecular orbital method PM6 and DFT (density functional theory) calculations have revealed that the more stable form of the dimeric complex is that one in which the ligand is present in the enol form. The CuHHSB complex has shown high efficiency in the cleavage of plasmid DNA in aqueous solution, indicating its potential as chemical nuclease. Studies on DNA interactions, antimicrobial and cytotoxic activities have been undertaken to gain more information on the biological significance of HHSB and copper(II)-HHSB chelate species.

    Pure zein is known to be very hydrophobic, but is still inappropriate for coating and film applications because of their brittle nature. In an attempt to improve the flexibility and the antimicrobial activity of these coatings and films, Chemical modification of zein through forming Schiff bases with different phenolic aldhydes was tried. Influence of this modifications on mechanical, topographical, wetting properties and antimicrobial activity of zein films were evaluated. The chemical structure of the Schiff bases films were characterized by ATR-FTIR spectroscopy. The results indicate an improvement in mechanical properties with chemically modification of zein to form Schiff bases leading to a reduction in the elastic modulus. An increase in the elongation at break has been observed, but with slight influence on tensile strength. Plasticized zein films have similar initial contact angle (?40°). An increase in reaction temperature and time increases film's affinity towards water. As shown by contact angle measurements, a noticeable relation was found between film composition and the hydrophilicity. Surface topography also varied by forming Schiff bases, becoming rougher than zein-based films. The antibacterial activities of zein and Schiff bases of zein-based films were investigated against gram-positive bacteria (Listeria innocua, Listeria monocytogenes, Bacillus cereus and Clostridium sporogenes) and gram-negative bacteria (Escherichia coli, Yersinia enterocolitica and Salmonella enterica). It was found that the antibacterial activity of the Schiff bases-based films was more effective than that of zein-based films. PMID:25328181

    We have obtained Raman spectra of a series of all-trans retinal protonated Schiff-base isotopic derivatives. 13C-substitutions were made at the 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, and 15 positions while deuteration was performed at position 15. Based on the isotopic shifts, the observed C--C stretching vibrations in the 1,100-1,400 cm-1 fingerprint region are assigned. Normal mode calculations using a modified Urey-Bradley force field have been refined to reproduce the observed frequencies and isotopic shifts. Comparison with fingerprint assignments of all-trans retinal and its unprotonated Schiff base shows that the major effect of Schiff-base formation is a shift of the C14--C15 stretch from 1,111 cm-1 in the aldehyde to approximately 1,163 cm-1 in the Shiff base. This shift is attributed to the increased C14--C15 bond order that results from the reduced electronegativity of the Schiff-base nitrogen compared with the aldehyde oxygen. Protonation of the Schiff base increases pi-electron delocalization, causing a 6 to 16 cm-1 frequency increase of the normal modes involving the C8--C9, C10--C11, C12--C13, and C14--C15 stretches. Comparison of the protonated Schiff base Raman spectrum with that of light-adapted bacteriorhodopsin (BR568) shows that incorporation of the all-trans protonated Schiff base into bacterio-opsin produces an additional approximately 10 cm-1 increase of each C--C stretching frequency as a result of protein-induced pi-electron delocalization. Importantly, the frequency ordering and spacing of the C--C stretches in BR568 is the same as that found in the protonated Schiff base. PMID:4016185

    The Schiff base linkage bond configuration of bacteriorhodopsin was studied using model compounds consisting of all-trans- and 13-cis-retinal-protonated Schiff bases bearing C = N anti and syn bond configurations. The C = N configuration was analyzed using a combination of Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy and isotopically labeled chromophores. It was found that, in the model compounds, the coupling between the C14--C15 stretching frequency and the N--H rock is weak in the all-trans-retinal-protonated Schiff base in both the anti and syn C = N configurations. However, this coupling is relatively strong in the 13-cis-retinal-protonated Schiff base in both the anti and syn C = N configurations. Thus, it is concluded that, in model compounds, the C14--C15 mode can serve as a marker for the C13 = C14 bond configuration but not for the C = N. A different situation may prevail in bacteriorhodopsin due to different conformations of the retinal chromophore in the protein binding site and in solution. This difference suggests that the C14--C15/NH coupling in retinal-protonated Schiff bases is affected by the retinal conformation. PMID:8343511

    Pyrene containing Schiff base molecule, namely 4-[(pyren-1-ylmethylene)amino]phenol (KB-1), was successfully synthesized and well characterized by using (1)H, (13)C NMR, FT-IR, and EI-MS spectrometry. UV-visible absorption, steady-state fluorescence, time-resolved fluorescence, and transient absorption spectroscopic techniques have been employed to elucidate the photophysical processes of KB-1. It has been demonstrated that the absorption characteristics of KB-1 have been bathochromatically tuned to the visible region by extending the ?-conjugation. The extended ?-conjugation is evidently confirmed by DFT calculations and reveals that ???* transition is the major factor responsible for electronic absorption of KB-1. The photophysical property of KB-1 was carefully examined in different organic solvents at different concentrations and the results show that the fluorescence of this molecule is completely quenched due to photoinduced electron transfer. Intriguingly, the fluorescence intensity of KB-1 increases enormously by the gradual addition of water up to 90% with concomitant increase in fluorescence lifetime. This clearly signifies that this molecule has aggregation-induced emission (AIE) property. The mechanism of AIE of this molecule is suppression of photoinduced electron transfer (PET) due to hydrogen bonding interaction of imine donor with water. A direct evidence of PET process has been presented by using nanosecond transient absorption measurements. Further, KB-1 was successfully used for antimicrobial and bioimaging studies. The antimicrobial studies were carried out through disc diffusion method. KB-1 is used against both Gram-positive (Rhodococcus rhodochrous and Staphylococcus aureus) and Gram-negative (Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa) bacterial species and also fungal species (Candida albicans). The result shows KB-1 can act as an excellent antimicrobial agent and as a photolabeling agent. S. aureus, P. aeruginosa, and C. albicans were found to be the most susceptible microorganisms at 1 mM concentration among the bacteria used in the present investigation. PMID:25360825

    The incidence of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus increased during the past few decades, so there is an urgent need of new antimicrobial agents if public health is concerned. Though the Schiff’s bases and La(III) complex have enormous biological activity, but less attention was given in their synthesis. In the present investigation, we synthesized a new (E)-3-((2-hydroxynaphthalen-1-yl) methyleneamino)-2-methylquinazoline-4(3H)-one HNMAMQ Schiff’s base by the condensation of 3-(2-aminophenyl) quinazolin-2-methyl-4(3H)-one and 2-hydroxy-1-naphthaldehyde. The Schiff’s base HNMAMQ and its La(III) complex were characterized by elemental analyses, IR, NMR, mass spectra, and thermal studies. The newly synthesized Schiff’s base HNMAMQ and its La(III) complex were evaluated for their antimicrobial activity against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus isolated from the Gulbarga region in India. The Schiff’s base HNMAMQ and its La(III) complex showed good antimicrobial activity and thus represents a potential new drug of choice.

    The active form of vitamin B6, pyridoxal 5'-phosphate (PLP), is an important cofactor for numerous enzymes in amine and amino acid metabolism. Presented here is the first femtosecond transient absorption study of free PLP and two Schiff bases, PLP-valine and PLP-alpha-aminoisobutyric acid (AIB), in solution. Photoexcitation of free PLP leads to efficient triplet formation with an internal conversion rate that increases with increasing pH. The measured excited-state kinetics of the PLP-valine Schiff base exhibits a dramatic deuterium dependence as a result of excited-state proton transfer (ESPT) of the Calpha hydrogen in the amino acid substrate. This is consistent with formation of the key reaction carbanionic intermediate (quinonoid), which is resonance stabilized by the electron-deficient, conjugated pi system of the Schiff base/pyridine ring. The transient absorption signals of the PLP-Schiff base with alpha-methylalanine (2-aminoisobutyric acid), which does not have a Calpha proton, lack an observable deuterium effect, verifying ESPT formation of the quinonoid intermediate. In contrast to previous studies, no dependence on the excitation wavelength of the femtosecond kinetics is observed with PLP or PLP-valine, which suggests that a rapid (<250 fs) tautomerization occurs between the enolimine (absorbing at 330 nm) and ketoenamine (absorbing at 410 nm) tautomers in solution.

This is well illustrated with bipy and phen frameworks which exhibit a bridging type of coordination compared to the classical chelating behaviour.

    Proteorhodopsin (PR), an archaeal-type rhodopsin found in marine bacteria, is a light-driven proton pump similar to bacteriorhodopsin (BR). It is known that Asp97, a counterion of the protonated Schiff base, possesses a higher pKa ( approximately 7) compared to that of homologous Asp85 in BR (<3). This suggests that PR has a hydrogen-bonding network different from that of BR. We previously reported that a strongly hydrogen-bonded water molecule is observed only in the alkaline form of PR, where Asp97 is deprotonated (Furutani, Y., Ikeda, D., Shibata, M., and Kandori, H. (2006) Chem. Phys. 324, 705-708). This is probably correlated with the pH-dependent proton pumping activity of PR. In this work, we studied the water-containing hydrogen-bonding network in the Schiff base region of PR by means of Fourier-transform infrared (FTIR) spectroscopy at 77 K. [zeta-15N]Lys-labeling and 18O water were used for assigning the Schiff base N-D and water O-D stretching vibrations in D2O, respectively. The frequency upshift of the N-D stretch in the primary K intermediate is much smaller for PR than for BR, indicating that the Schiff base forms a hydrogen bond after retinal photoisomerization. We then measured FTIR spectra of the mutants of Asp97 (D97N and D97E) and Asp227 (D227N and D227E) to identify the amino acid interacting with the Schiff base in the K state. The PRK minus PR spectra of D97N and D97E were similar to those of the acidic and alkaline forms, respectively, of the wild type implying that the structural changes upon retinal photoisomerization are not influenced by the mutation at Asp97. In contrast, clear spectral differences were observed in D227N and D227E, including vibrational bands of the Schiff base and water molecules. It is concluded that Asp227 plays a crucial role during the photoisomerization process, though Asp97 acts as the primary counterion in the unphotolyzed state of PR. PMID:17428036

    A series of novel Schiff's bases have been synthesized from 3-(1,3-benzothiazol-2-yl)-2-hydroxynaphthalene-1-carbaldehyde. The presence of hydroxyl group ortho to the benzothiazolyl group as well as the imine linkage lead to the occurrence of excited state intramolecular proton transfer process. The computational strategy was used to study the ESIPT process of the synthesized Schiff's bases, which revealed surprisingly that the keto form predominantly exists in the ground state contradicting the ESIPT process. Density functional theory and time dependent density functional theory have been used to investigate the structural parameters and photophysical properties in different solvents of one of the Schiff's bases. The experimental results correlate well with the computed results. All Schiff's bases show good thermal stability.

    Ionophore incorporated PVC membrane sensors are well-established analytical tools routinely used for the selective and direct measurement of a wide variety of different ions in complex biological and environmental samples. Potentiometric sensors have some outstanding advantages including simple design and operation, wide linear dynamic range, relatively fast response and rational selectivity. The vital component of such plasticized PVC members is the ionophore involved, defining the selectivity of the electrodes' complex formation. Molecular recognition causes the formation of many different supramolecules. Different types of supramolecules, like calixarenes, cyclodextrins and podands, have been used as a sensing material in the construction of ion selective sensors. Schiff's bases and crown ethers, which feature prominently in supramolecular chemistry, can be used as sensing materials in the construction of potentiometric ion selective electrodes. Up to now, more than 200 potentiometric membrane sensors for cations and anions based on Schiff's bases and crown ethers have been reported. In this review cation binding and anion complexes will be described. Liquid membrane sensors based on Schiff's bases and crown ethers will then be discussed.

Molar conductance and infrared spectral evidences indicate that the complexes are four-coordinate in which the Schiff bases are coordinated as NNOS ligands. Room temperature ?eff values for the complexes are 1.71-1.80 B.M. corresponding to one unpaired electron respectively. The formation constants and free energies were measured spectrophotometrically, at constant ionic strength 0.1 M (NaClO4), at 25?C in DMF solvent. Also, the DFT calculations were carried out to determine the structural and the geometrical properties of the complexes. The DFT results are further supported by the experimental formation constants of these complexes.

    A novel Schiff base ligand was synthesized by the condensation reaction of 2,6-diformylpyridine and 4-aminoantipyrine in MeOH and characterised by its melting point, elemental analysis, FT-IR, 1H, 13C NMR and mass spectroscopic studies. Molecular structure of the ligand was determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction technique. The electrochemical properties of the Schiff base ligand were studied in different solvents at various scan rates. Sensor ability of the Schiff base ligand was investigated by colorimetric and fluorometric methods. Visual colour change of the ligand was investigated in MeOH solvent in presence of various metal ions Na+, Mg2+, Al3+, K+, Cr3+, Mn2+, Fe3+, Co2+, Ni2+, Cu2+, Zn2+, Cd2+, Hg2+ and Pb2+. Upon addition of Al3+ ion into a MeOH solution of the ligand, an orange colour developed which is detectable by naked eye. Fluorescence emission studies showed that the ligand showed single emission band at 630-665 nm upon excitation at 560 nm. Addition of metal ions Na+, Mg2+, K+, Cr3+, Mn2+, Fe3+, Co2+, Ni2+, Cu2+, Zn2+, Cd2+, Hg2+ and Pb2+ (1:1 M ratio) cause fluorescence quenching, however addition of Al+3 resulted in an increase in fluorescence intensity. No significant variation was observed in the fluorescence intensity caused by Al3+ in presence of other metal ions. Therefore, the Schiff base ligand can be used for selective detection of Al3+ ions in the presence of the other metal ions studied.

    The platinum complexes of Schiff base ligands derived from 4-aminoantipyrine and a few substituted aldehydes were synthesized and characterized by elemental analysis, mass, (1)H NMR, IR, electronic spectra, molar conductance, and powder XRD. The structure of one of the ligands L5 was confirmed by a single crystal XRD analysis. The Schiff base ligand crystallized in the triclinic, space group P-1 with a=7.032(2)?, b=9.479(3)?, c=12.425(4)?, ?=101.636(3)°, ?=99.633(3)°, ?=94.040(3)°, V=795.0(4)?(3), Z=2, F(000)=352, Dc=1.405mg/m(3), ?=0.099mm(-1), R=0.0378, and wR=0.0967. The spectral results show that the Schiff base ligand acts as a bidentate donor coordinating through the azomethine nitrogen and the carbonyl oxygen atoms. The geometrical structures of these complexes are found to be square planar. Antimicrobial studies indicate that these complexes exhibit better activity than the ligand. The anticancer activities of the complexes have also been studied towards human cervical cancer cell line (HeLa), Colon Cancer Cells (HCT116) and Epidermoid Carcinoma Cells (A431) and it was found that the [Pt(L3)Cl2] complex is more active.

    A series of Schiff bases, salicylideneaniline derivatives 1–4, was synthesized under mild conditions and characterized by 1H NMR, HRMS, UV-Vis and fluorescence spectra, and single-crystal X-ray diffraction. In solid and aprotic solvents 1–4 exist mainly as E conformers that possess an intramolecular six-membered-ring hydrogen bond. A weak intramolecular C–H···F hydrogen bond is also observed in fluoro-functionalized Schiff base 4, which generates another S(6) ring motif. The C–H···F hydrogen bond further stabilizes its structure and leads it to form a planar configuration. Compounds 1–3 exhibit solely a long-wavelength proton-transfer tautomer emission, while dipole-functionalized Schiff base 4 shows remarkable dual emission originated from the excited-state intramolecular charge transfer (ESICT) and excited-state intramolecular proton transfer (ESIPT) states. Furthermore, the geometric structures, frontier molecular orbitals (MOs) and the potential energy curves for 1–4 in the ground and the first singlet excited state were fully rationalized by density functional theory (DFT) and time-dependent DFT calculations.

  13. The aromatic fluctuation index (FLU): A new aromaticity index based on electron delocalization

    2005-01-01

    In this work, the aromatic fluctuation index (FLU) that describes the fluctuation of electronic charge between adjacent atoms in a given ring is introduced as a new aromaticity measure. This new electronic criterion of aromaticity is based on the fact that aromaticity is related to the cyclic delocalized circulation of ? electrons. It is defined not only considering the amount of electron sharing between contiguous atoms, which should be substantial in aromatic molecules, but also taking into account the similarity of electron sharing between adjacent atoms. For a series of rings in 15 planar polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons, we have found that, in general, FLU is strongly correlated with other widely used indicators of local aromaticity, such as the harmonic-oscillator model of aromaticity, the nucleus independent chemical shift, and the para-delocalization index (PDI). In contrast to PDI, the FLU index can be applied to study the aromaticity of rings with any number of members and it can be used to analyze both the local and global aromatic character of rings and molecules.

Both analytical methods applied to the solid state sample of two Schiff bases showed a significant difference in molecular structures of unsubstituted and 7-CH3 substituted compounds. This effect was explained as a steric interaction of methyl group. Additionally the structure of two Cd2+ complexes with some Schiff bases were determined by NMR methods in DMSO solution and in the solid state. On the base of heteronuclear NMR measurement (13C, 15N and 113Cd) it was possible to define the complexation site on nitrogen atom. The large set of spectral parameters: chemical shifts, homo- and heteronuclear coupling constants, were used in structure study.

    A series of novel metal complexes of Schiff base have been prepared by the interaction of Cu(II) with isatin salicylic hydrazide. All the new compounds were characterized by elemental analysis, conductance measurement, magnetic moment determination, IR, UV, NMR, Mass and EPR spectral studies, thermal studies and microbial activities. The results indicate that the ligand acts as a tridentate chelating ligand coordinating through nitrogen and oxygen atoms. The ligand and complexes show inactive against Escherichia coli and active against Staphylococcus aureus and B.substilis. By analyzing the results of spectral, thermal and elemental analysis square planar geometry is proposed for all the complexes.

    A series of six Ln(III) Schiff base complexes, Pr(III), Sm(III), Gd(III), Tb(III), Er(III) and Yb(III), were synthesized using sodium salt of Schiff base, 2-[(5-bromo-2-hydroxy-benzylidene)-amino]-3-hydroxy-propionic acid, derived from L-serine and 5-bromosalicylaldehyde. These complexes having general formula [Ln(L)(NO3)2(H2O)]·NO3 were characterized by elemental analysis, conductivity measurements, UV-Vis, FT-IR, mass spectrometry and fluorescence studies. Elemental analysis and conductivity measurements suggest the complexes have a 1:1 stoichiometry. From the spectral studies it has been concluded that Ln(III) complexes display eight coordination. The Schiff base and its Ln(III) metal complexes have also been screened for their antibacterial activities by Agar diffusion method.

    Three bidentate Schiff bases having nitrogen and sulphur donor sequences were prepared by condensing S-benzyldithiocarbazate (NH2NHCS2CH2C6H5) with heterocyclic aldehydes. The reaction of diphenyltin dichloride with Schiff bases leads to the formation of a new series of organotin(IV) complexes. An attempt has been made to prove their structures on the basis of elemental analyses, conductance measurements, molecular weights determinations, UV, infrared, and multinuclear magnetic resonance (1H, 13C, and 119Sn) spectral studies. Organotin(IV) complexes were five- and six-coordinate. Schiff bases and their corresponding organotin complexes have also been screened for their antibacterial and antifungal activities and found to be quite active in this respect. PMID:17497003

    Metal(II) coordination compounds of a cephalexin Schiff base (HL) derived from the condensation of cephalexin antibiotic with sulphathiazole were synthesized. The Schiff base ligand, mononuclear [ML(OAc)(H2O)2] (M(II) = Mn, Co, Ni, Zn) complexes and magnetically diluted trinuclear copper(II) complex [Cu3L(OH)5] were characterized by several techniques, including elemental and thermal analysis, molar conductance and magnetic susceptibility measurements, electronic, FT-IR, EPR and 1H NMR spectral studies. The analytical and molar conductance values indicated that the acetate ions coordinate to the metal ions. The Schiff base ligand HL behaves as a monoanionic tridentate NNO and tetradentate NNOO chelating agent in the mono and trinuclear complexes respectively.

    The synthesis of Nitrogen-containing heterocycles has been achieved using chemical and electrochemical methods, respectively. The direct chemical synthesis of nucleophiles proceeds through the Schiff base chemical reaction. This procedure offers an alternate reaction between dicarbonyl compounds and diamines leads to the formation of products. The results indicate that the Schiff base chemical method for synthesis of the product has successfully performed in excellent overall yield. In the electrochemical step, a series of Nitrogen-containing compounds were electrosynthesized. Various parameters such as the applied potential, pH of the electrolytic solution, cell configuration and also purification techniques, were carried out to optimize the yields of corresponding products. New Nitrogen-containing heterocycle derivatives were synthesized using an electrochemical procedure coupled with a Schiff base as a facile, efficient and practical method. The products have been characterized after purification by IR, {sup 1}H NMR, {sup 13}C NMR and ESI-MS{sup 2}.

    A new bidentate ON Schiff base ligand of HL (HL = 5-nitro-2-hydroxybenzyl-2-furylmethyl) imine), was synthesized by simple condensation reaction of 5-nitro-2-hydroxybenzaldehyde and 2-furfurylamine. Then by reaction of a methanolic solutions of the HL and VO(acac)2 in the ratio of 2:1, a new oxidovanadium(IV) Schiff base complex of VOL2 was synthesized. The Schiff base ligand and its vanadyl Schiff base complex were characterized by FT-IR, UV-vis spectra and CHN analysis. Single crystals suitable for X-ray analysis were obtained in DMSO as a VOL2(DMSO) complex. The crystal structure of the VOL2(DMSO) was determined by the single-crystal X-ray analysis. The coordination geometry around the vanadium center can be described as a distorted octahedron formed by two phenolato oxygen and two imine nitrogen atoms of the two Schiff base ligands in the equatorial position, the oxygen atom of DMSO and the oxido ion coordinated in the axial position. Thermogravimetric analysis of the VOL2 showed that the formation of mixed vanadium oxides at 450 ?C. In addition, decomposition of the vanadyl Schiff base complex (VOL2) in air at 660 °C resulted in the formation of the V2O5 nano particles with the average size of 52 nm. The catalytic activity of the VOL2 complex was evaluated in the epoxidation of cyclooctene (90% conversion and 100% epoxide) and oxidation of methyl phenyl sulfide (100% conversion and 100% sulfoxide).

    A new chemosensor Sz based on Schiff-base group as recognition site and naphthalene as the fluorescence signal group was designed and synthesised. It could fluorescent "turn-on" detect cyanide (CN(-)) via a novel mechanism of nucleophilic addition induced Schiff-base hydrolysis. Adding the CN(-) into the solution of Sz could induce Sz to emit blue fluorescence at 435nm instantly. Moreover, Sz could also colorimetric detect CN(-). Upon the addition of CN(-), the Sz showed dramatic color change from yellow to colorless. These sensing procedures could not be interfered by other coexistent competitive anions such as F(-), AcO(-), H2PO4(-) and SCN(-). In addition, Sz showed high sensitivity for CN(-), the detection limits is 3.42×10(-8)M of CN(-), which is far lower than the WHO guideline of CN(-) in drinking water (less than 1.9×10(-6)M). The CN(-) test strips based on Sz could act as a convenient CN(-) test kits. PMID:25668691

The synthesized Schiff bases and their metal complexes were characterized with the aid of elemental analyses, magnetic moment measurements, spectroscopic and thermogravimetric techniques. The presence of coordinated water in metal complexes was supported by infrared and thermal gravimetric studies. A square planar geometry was suggested for Cu(II) and octahedral geometry proposed for Co(II), Ni(II), and Zn(II) complexes. The Schiff bases and their metal complexes have been screened for antibacterial (Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Bacillus subtilis) and antifungal activities (Aspergillus niger, A. flavus). The metal complexes exhibited significantly enhanced antibacterial and antifungal activity as compared to their simple Schiff bases. PMID:22216017

    Condensation of amine 1 with aldehyde 2 gives Schiff base, N-(4-((benzofuran-2-ylmethylene) amino)phenyl)acetamide 3. Schiff base on N-acylation with different substituted acid chlorides in the presence of triethylamine gives the corresponding benzamides, N-acetyl-N-(4-((benzofuran-2-ylmethylene)amino)phenyl)substitutedbenzamide (NABP) 5a–j. The structures of newly synthesized compounds were characterized by elemental analysis, 1H NMR, 13C NMR FT-IR, and mass spectral studies. Compounds 3 and 5a–j have been screened for their antimicrobial activity using the disc diffusion and minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) method against the selected bacterial and fungal strain. Compounds 5a, 5e, 5g, and 5h were found to be more active against all tested strains. The antioxidant properties were evaluated by 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) and superoxide radical scavenging methods. Compounds 5i and 5j showed predominant antioxidant activities among the synthesized analogues. The interaction between NABP and bovine serum albumin (BSA) was investigated using fluorescence and ultraviolet spectroscopic techniques at 298?K under imitated physiological conditions. The results revealed that NABP caused the fluorescence quenching of BSA through a static quenching procedure. The binding constants and the number of binding sites were calculated. The binding distance between the donor (BSA) and acceptor (NABP) was determined based on Forster's theory. PMID:24052869

Their structural features and other properties were explored from the analytical and spectral methods. The binding behaviors of the complexes to calf thymus DNA were investigated by absorption spectra, viscosity measurements and cyclic voltammetry. The intrinsic binding constants for the above synthesized complexes are found to be in the order of 10(2) to 10(5) indicating that most of the synthesized complexes are good intercalators. The binding constant values (Kb) clearly indicate that valine Schiff-base complexes have more intercalating ability than alanine and glycine Schiff-base complexes. The results indicate that the complexes bind to DNA through intercalation and act as efficient cleaving agents. The in vitro antibacterial and antifungal assay indicates that these complexes are good antimicrobial agents against various pathogens. The IC50 values of [Ni(L1)2] and [Zn(L1)2] complexes imply that these complexes have preferable ability to scavenge hydroxyl radical. PMID:24566120

    A new family of dicopper(I) complexes [CuI2RL](X)2, (R = H, 1X, R = tBu, 2X and R = NO2, 3X, X = CF3SO3, ClO4, SbF6 or BArF, BArF = [B{3,5-(CF3)2-C6H3}4]?), where RL is a Schiff-base ligand containing two tridentate binding sites linked by a xylyl spacer have been prepared, characterized, and their reaction with O2 studied. The complexes were designed with the aim of reproducing structural aspects of the active site of type 3 dicopper proteins; they contain two three-coordinate copper sites and a rather flexible podand ligand backbone. The solid state structures of 1ClO4, 2CF3SO3, 2ClO4 and 3BArF·CH3CN have been established by single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis. 1ClO4 adopts a polymeric structure in solution while 2CF3SO3, 2ClO4 and 3BArF·CH3CN are monomeric. The complexes have been studied in solution by means of 1H and 19F NMR spectroscopy, which put forward the presence of dynamic processes in solution. 1-3BArF and 1-3CF3SO3 in acetone react rapidly with O2 to generate metaestable [CuIII2(?-O)2(RL)]2+ 1-3(O2) and [CuIII2(?-O)2(CF3SO3)(RL)]+ 1-3(O2)(CF3SO3) species, respectively that have been characterized by UV-vis spectroscopy and resonance Raman analysis. Instead, reaction of 1-3BArF with O2 in CH2Cl2 results in intermolecular O2 binding. DFT methods have been used to study the chemical identities and structural parameters of the O2 adducts, and the relative stability of the CuIII2(?-O)2 form with respect to the CuII2(?-?2: ?2-peroxo) isomer. The reaction of 1X, X = CF3SO3 and BArF with O2 in acetone has been studied by stopped-flow exhibiting an unexpected very fast reaction rate (k = 3.82(4) × 103 M?1s?1, ?H‡ = 4.9 ± 0.5 kJ·mol?1, ?S‡ = ?148 ± 5 J·K?1·mol?1), nearly three orders of magnitude faster than in the parent [CuI2(m-XYLMeAN)]2+. Thermal decomposition of 1-3(O2) does not result in aromatic hydroxylation. The mechanism and kinetics of O2 binding to 1X (X = CF3SO3 and BArF) is discussed and compared with those associated to selected examples of reported models of O2-processing copper proteins. A synergistic role of the copper ions in O2 binding and activation is clearly established from this analysis. PMID:17500512

The prepared Schiff bases were used for further complex formation reaction with different metal elements like Co(II), Ni(II), Cu(II) and Zn(II) as chlorides by using a molar ratio of ligand:metal as 2:1. The structure and bonding nature of all the compounds were identified by their physical, spectral and analytical data. All the metal(II) complexes possessed an octahedral geometry except the Cu(II) complexes which showed a distorted octahedral geometry. All the synthesized compounds, were studied for their in vitro antibacterial, and antifungal activities, against four Gram-negative (Escherichia coli, Shigella sonnei, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Salmonella typhi) and two Gram-positive (Bacillus subtilis and Staphylococcus aureus) bacterial strains and against six fungal strains (Trichophyton longifusus, Candida albicans, Aspergillus flavus, Microsporum canis, Fusarium solani and Candida glabrata) by using agar-well diffusion method. It has been shown that all the synthesized compounds showed moderate to significant antibacterial activity against one or more bacterial strains. In vitro Brine Shrimp bioassay was also carried out to investigate the cytotoxic properties of these compounds. The data also revealed that the metal complexes showed better activity than the ligands due to chelation/coordination.

Equilibrium constants KAD and molar extinction coefficients ?AD of the donor-acceptor complexes (AD) were determined using the modified Benesi-Hildebrand equation in conjunction with the non linear fit analysis. The method shows the formation of 1:1 type complexes as major species in solution. The free energy changes ?G° and the energy of the charge transfer band ECT were also calculated for all complexes. The iodine complex derived from SB2 seems to be more stable than those derived from SB3 and SB1. On the other hand, the ionization potential ID of each Schiff base was estimated from the corresponding complex band energy, using an empirical equation. An inverse relationship between ID and KAD values was found. Blue and red shift observed for the 445 nm band of iodine were also discussed on the basis of theoretical considerations.

The formation constants of the water soluble Schiff base complexes were calculated by Ketelaar's equation. The theoretical molecular structure for the complexes was computed by using the HF method and the 6-311G basis set. The mechanism of binding of Na2[M(L)(H2O)n] with human serum albumin (HSA) was studied by fluorescence spectroscopic technique. The results of fluorescence titration showed that the intrinsic fluorescence of HSA was quenched by the complexes; which was rationalized in terms of the dynamic quenching mechanism. The values of Stern-Volmer constants, quenching rate constants, binding constants, binding sites and average aggregation number of HSA have been determined. The thermodynamic parameters, were calculated by van't Hoff equation, indicate that the binding is entropy driven and enthalpically disfavored. Based on the Förster theory of non-radiation energy transfer, the efficiency of energy transfer and the distance between the donor (Trp residues) and the acceptor (complex) were obtained. Finally, the growth inhibitory effects of the complexes toward the K562 cancer cell line were measured.

    We have applied low temperature difference FTIR spectroscopy to investigate intermediates produced from the M intermediate upon blue light excitation (<480 nm). In agreement with an earlier report by Balashov and Litvin (1981), who studied these intermediates with low temperature visible absorption spectrophotometry, we have observed at least three stages in this backphotoreaction. The initial photoproduct is stable at 100 K, and two products of subsequent thermal reactions are observed upon raising the temperature to 130 and 160 K, respectively. The alterations in the C=N stretching mode of the Schiff base have been identified by isotopically labeling the retinal chromophore, and changes in C=O stretching modes of amino acid residues with acidic side chains have been investigated. Analysis of the C=N stretching mode shows that the Schiff base remains unprotonated after the photochemical reaction at 100 K. Moreover, there are two types of Schiff bases, presumably associated with different bR species, that become thermally reprotonated at 130 and 160 K, respectively. Bands associated with the C=O stretching modes suggest that Asp 85 rather than Asp 96 reprotonates the Schiff base during the M to bR backphotoreaction. This conclusion is consistent with earlier observations that the polarity of electrical signals during this photochemical back reaction is reversed as compared to the thermal regeneration of bR from M.

    Present work reviews that, the synthesis of (E)-N'-((7-hydroxy-4-methyl-2-oxo-2H-chromen-8-yl)methylene)benzohydrazide [L] ligand and their metal complexes. The colored complexes were prepared of type [M(2+)L]X2, where M(2+)=Mn, Co, Ni, Cu, Sr and Cd, L=(7-hydroxy-4-methyl-2-oxo-2H-chromen-8-yl)methylene)benzohydrazide, X=Cl(-). Ligand derived from the condensation of 8-formyl-7-hydroxy-4-methylcoumarin and benzohydrazide in the molar ratio 1:1 and in the molar ratio 1:2 for metal complexes have been prepared. The chelation of the ligand to metal ions occurs through the both oxygen groups, as well as the nitrogen atoms of the azomethine group of the ligand. Reactions of the Schiff base ligand with Manganese(II), Cobalt(II), Nickel(II), Copper(II), Strontium(II), and Cadmium(II) afforded the corresponding metal complexes. The structures of the obtained ligand and their respective metal complexes were elucidated by infra-red, elemental analysis, Double beam UV-visible spectra, conductometric measurements, magnetic susceptibility measurements and also thermochemical studies. The metal complex exhibits octahedral coordination geometrical arrangement. Schiff base ligand and their metal complexes were tested against antioxidants, antidiabetic and antimicrobial activities have been studied. The Schiff base metal complexes emerges effective ?-glucosidase inhibitory activity than free Schiff base ligand. PMID:24858195

    The two chromium chelates of Schiff bases, N-(acetoacetanilide)-1,2-diaminoethane (L(1)) and N,N'-bis(acetoacetanilide)-triethylenetetraammine (L(2)), have been synthesized and explored as neutral ionophores for preparing poly(vinylchloride) (PVC) based membrane sensors selective to Cr(III). The addition of lipophilic anion excluder (NaTPB) and various plasticizers viz. o-Nitrophenyloctyl ether (o-NPOE), dioctylpthalate (DOP), dibutylphthalate (DBP), tris(2-ethylhexyl)phosphate (TEHP), and benzyl acetate (BA) have found to improve the performance of the sensors. The best performance was obtained for the membrane sensor having a composition of L(1):PVC:DBP:NaTPB in the ratio 5:150:250:3 (w/w). The sensor exhibits Nernstian response in the concentration range 8.9 x 10(-8) to 1.0 x 10(-1) M Cr(3+) with limit of detection 5.6 x 10(-8) M. The proposed sensor manifest advantages of relatively fast response (10s) and good selectivity over some alkali, alkaline earth, transition and heavy metal ions. The selectivity behavior of the proposed electrode revealed a considerable improvement as compared to the best previously PVC-membrane electrode for chromium(III) ion. The potentiometric response of the proposed sensor was independent of pH of the test solution in the range of 2.0-7.0. The sensor has found to work satisfactorily in partially non-aqueous media up to 20% (v/v) content of methanol, ethanol and acetonitrile and could be used for a period of 3 months. The proposed electrode was used as an indicator electrode in potentiometric titration of chromium ion with EDTA and in direct determination in different water and food samples. PMID:17386662

  11. The complex extracellular domain regulates the deprotonation and reprotonation of the retinal Schiff base during the bacteriorhodopsin photocycle.

    During the L-->M reaction of the bacteriorhodopsin photocycle the proton of the retinal Schiff base is transferred to the anionic D85. This step, together with the subsequent reprotonation of the Schiff base from D96 in the M-->N reaction, results in the translocation of a proton across the membrane. The first of these critical proton transfers occurs in an extended hydrogen-bonded complex containing two negatively charged residues (D85 and D212), two positively charged groups (the Schiff base and R82), and coordinated water. We simplified this region by replacing D212 and R82 with neutral residues, leaving only the proton donor and acceptor as charged groups. The D212N/R82Q mutant shows essentially normal proton transport, but in the photocycle neither of this protein nor of the D212N/R82Q/D96N triple mutant does a deprotonated Schiff base (the M intermediate) accumulate. Instead, the photocycle contains only the K, L, and N intermediates. Infrared difference spectra of D212N/R82Q and D212N/R82Q/D96N demonstrate that although D96 becomes deprotonated in N, D85 remains unprotonated. On the other hand, M is produced at pH > 8, where according to independent evidence the L<==>M equilibrium should shift toward M. Likewise, M is restored in the photocycle when the retinal is replaced with the 14-fluoro analogue that lowers the pKa of the protonated Schiff base, and now D85 becomes protonated as in the wild type.(ABSTRACT TRUNCATED AT 250 WORDS) PMID:7548047

    In recent years, the synthetic polymer polyetheretherketone (PEEK) has increasingly been used in a number of orthopedic implementations, due to its excellent mechanical properties, bioinertness, and chemical resistance. For in vivo applications, the surface of PEEK, which does not naturally support cell adhesion, has to be modified to improve tissue integration. In the present work we demonstrate a novel wet-chemical modification of PEEK to modify the surface, enabling the covalent grafting of the cell-adhesive RGD-peptide. Modification of the polymer surface was achieved via Schiff base formation using an aliphatic diamine and subsequent crosslinker-mediated immobilization of the peptide. In cell culture experiments with primary osteoblasts it was shown that the RGD-modified PEEK not only significantly promoted cellular adhesion but also strongly enhanced the proliferation of osteoblasts on the modified polymer surface.

The performance of various density functionals (B3LYP, M06-2X, PW6B95, B2PLYP, mPW2PLYP, PWPB95) as well as MP2 and SCS-MP2 is evaluated against these results. M06-2X and SCS-MP2 yield results close to the LPNO-CEPA/1-CBS values. Solvent effects (CCl4, CHCl3, CH3CN, and CH3OH) are treated by a variety of bulk solvation models (SM8, IEFPCM, COSMO, PBF, and SMD) as well as explicit solvation (Monte Carlo free energy perturbation using the OPLSAA force field).

The results showed that the three RSBs effectively quenched the intrinsic fluorescence of BSA via static quenching. Binding constant (K a), number of binding sites (n), and the binding distance (r) between three RSBs and BSA were calculated by Stern-Volmer equation and Förster's theory in this study. According to the results of displacement experiments of site probes, it was considered that the binding sites were located in hydrophobic cavities in sub-domains IIA of BSA. What is more, synchronous fluorescence studies indicated that the hydrophobicity around tryptophan residues was increased with the addition of rimantadine-o-vanillin (ROV) and rimantadine-4-methoxy-salicylaldehyde (RMS), while there was no apparent change with the addition of rimantadine-salicylaldehyde (RS).

    This study deals with the investigation of two low molecular weight Schiff base compounds with bromine end groups, differing only by the presence or absence of one methyl group, with the aim of better understanding the solution and the solid state optical, electrochemical and thermic properties generated by the small structural features. The compounds were structurally characterized by 1H NMR, 13C NMR and FTIR spectroscopies, single-crystal X-ray diffraction and gas chromatography analysis. Their thermal behavior was evidenced by polarized light microscopy and differential scanning calorimetry. The single crystal structure of the compounds reveals the versatility of bromine substituents which can adopt an attractive or repulsive electron effect, driven by the structural environment. A comparison of the structures shows that the introduction of a methyl unit as a bulky group hinders completely the ?-? stacking interaction within the structural rows, inducing larger intermolecular distances resulting in quite different functional physical and chemical properties.

The structure of the prepared compounds was investigated using elemental analysis, IR, 1H and 31P NMR, UV-vis, mass spectra, solid reflectance, magnetic susceptibility and conductance measurements as well as conductometric titration. In all the complexes studied, the ligands act as a chelate ligand with coordination involving the phosphate?O-atom and the azomethine?N-atom. IR, solid reflectance spectra and magnetic moment measurement are used to infer the structure and to illustrate the coordination capacity of ligand. IR spectra show the presence of coordinated nitrate and water molecule, the magnetic moments of all complexes show normal magnetic behavior and the electronic spectra of the metal complexes indicate a tetra- and octahedral structure for Mn 2+, octahedral structure of Fe 3+ and both square-planar and distorted octahedral structure for Cu 2+ complexes. Antimicrobial activity of the ligands and their complexes were tested using the disc diffusion method and the chosen strains include Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aereuguinosa, Klebsiella penumoniae, Escherichia coli, Microsporum canis, Trichophyton mentagrophyte and Trichophyton rubrum.

    Previous solid state 13C-NMR studies of bacteriorhodopsin (bR) have inferred the C = N configuration of the retinal-lysine Schiff base linkage from the [14-13C]retinal chemical shift (1-3). Here we verify the interpretation of the [14-13C]-retinal data using the [epsilon-13C]lysine 216 resonance. The epsilon-Lys-216 chemical shifts in bR555 (48 ppm) and bR568 (53 ppm) are consistent with a C = N isomerization from syn in bR555 to anti in bR568. The M photointermediate was trapped at pH 10.0 and low temperatures by illumination of samples containing either 0.5 M guanidine-HCl or 0.1 M NaCl. In both preparations, the [epsilon-13C]Lys-216 resonance of M is 6 ppm downfield from that of bR568. This shift is attributed to deprotonation of the Schiff base nitrogen and is consistent with the idea that the M intermediate contains a C = N anti chromophore. M is the only intermediate trapped in the presence of 0.5 M guanidine-HCl, whereas a second species, X, is trapped in the presence of 0.1 M NaCl. The [epsilon-13C]Lys-216 resonance of X is coincident with the signal for bR568, indicating that X is either C = N anti and protonated or C = N syn and deprotonated. PMID:8369438

    The present work stems from our interest in the synthesis, characterization, and antibacterial evaluation of organosilicon(IV) complexes of a class of amino-acid-based Schiff base which have been prepared by the interaction of ethoxytrimethylsilane with the Schiff bases (N OH) in 1?:?1 molar ratio. These complexes have been characterized by elemental analysis, molar conductance, and spectroscopic studies including electronic IR and NMR (1H, 13C, and 29Si) spectroscopy. The analytical and spectral data suggest trigonal bipyramidal geometry around the silicon atom in the resulting complexes. The ligands and their organosilicon complexes have also been evaluated for in vitro antimicrobial activity against bacteria (Bacillus cereus, Nocardia spp., E. aerogenes, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella spp., and Staphylococcus spp.). The complexes were found to be more potent as compared to the ligands. PMID:23983671

    A series of Schiff base and naphtho[1,2-d]oxazole derivatives were selectively synthesized via condensation reaction of 1-amino-2-hydroxy-4-naphthalenesulfonic acid and benzaldehyde derivatives at same conditions. The synthesized compounds were then characterized by using (1)HNMR, (13)CNMR, FTIR spectroscopies and elemental analyses. It was seen that the Schiff bases generated in the presence of OH group at ortho position of benzaldehyde derivatives. However, the products were naphtho[1,2-d]oxazoles in other cases. Then, the synthesized compounds were photophysically investigated by UV absorption and fluorescence emission spectroscopies. As a result, these Schiff bases have shown long wavelength absorption (?max: 386nm) and emission (?max: 429-437nm) effect while synthesized naphtho[1,2-d]oxazole derivatives have a set of absorption (?max: about 296, 308, 320nm) and emission maxima (?max: 378-395nm) at lower wavelength.

    The difference Fourier transform infrared spectrum for the N intermediate in the photoreaction of the light-adapted form of bacteriorhodopsin can be recorded at pH 10 at 274 K (Pfefferle, J.-M., Maeda, A., Sasaki, J., and Yoshizawa, T. (1991) Biochemistry 30, 6548-6556). Under these conditions, Asp96-->Asn bacteriorhodopsin gives a photoproduct which shows changes in protein structure similar to those observed in N of wild-type bacteriorhodopsin. However, decreased intensity of the chromophore bands and the single absorbance maximum at about 400 nm indicate that the Schiff base is unprotonated, as in the M intermediate. This photoproduct was named MN. At pH 7, where the supply of proton is not as restricted as at pH 10, Asp96-->Asn bacteriorhodopsin yields N with a protonated Schiff base. The Asn96 residue, which cannot deprotonate as Asp96 in wild-type bacteriorhodopsin, is perturbed upon formation of both MN at pH 10 and N at pH 7. We suggest that the reprotonation of the Schiff base is preceded by a large change in the protein structure including perturbation of the residue at position 96.

    DNA glycosylases catalyze the first step of the base excision repair (BER) pathway. The chemistry used by these enzymes for deglycosylation has been largely considered as the chemistry of the oxocarbenium ion, e.g., direct rupture of the C1'-N1 bond resulting in an oxocarbenium ion intermediate. Here we present mechanistic studies revealing the 2'-deoxyribose isomerization and subsequent deglycosylation processes in two pyrimidine lesions: 5,6-dihydro-2'-deoxyuridine (dHdU) and 5,6-dihydrothymidine (dHT), formed via ionizing radiation damage to 2'-deoxycytidine and thymidine, respectively, under anoxic conditions. Acid or heat treatment of these two lesions leads to the production of two pairs of C1' epimers containing a pyranose and a furanose, respectively, indicating that both lesions favor the rupture of the C1'-O4' bond, resulting in a Schiff base intermediate at the N-glycosidic bond. Such a Schiff base intermediate was trapped and characterized by either Pd-catalyzed hydrogenation or thiol-mediated addition reaction. In contrast, in undamaged 2'-deoxyuridine and thymidine, reactions at elevated temperatures lead to the release of nucleobases most likely via the traditional oxocarbenium ion pathway. DFT calculations further support the experimental findings, suggesting that the oxocarbenium ion intermediate is responsible for the deglycosylation process if the integrity of the pyrimidine ring is maintained, while the Schiff base intermediate is preferred if the C5?C6 bond is saturated. Currently, the oxocarbenium ion pathway is indicated to be solely responsible for the deglycosylation in BER enzymes, however our results suggest an alternative Schiff base mechanism which may be responsible for the repair of saturated pyrimidine damages.

    A simple, highly sensitive, accurate and selective method for determination of trace amounts of Pb(II) in water samples is presented. A novel Schiff base-chitosan-grafted multiwalled carbon nanotubes (S-CS-MWCNTs) solid-phase extraction adsorbent was synthesized by covalently grafting a Schiff base-chitosan (S-CS) onto the surfaces of oxidized MWCNTs. The stability of a chemically (S-CS-MWCNTs) especially in concentrated hydrochloric acid which was then used as a recycling and preconcentration reagent for further uses of (S-CS-MWCNTs). The method is based on selective chelation of Pb(II) on surfactant coated C18, modified with a Schiff base-chitosan-grafted multiwalled carbon nanotubes (S-CS-MWCNTs). The retained ions were then eluted with 4 mL of 4 M nitric acid and determined by flame atomic absorption spectrometry (FAAS) at 283.3 nm for Pb. The influence of flow rates of sample and eluent solutions, pH, break-through volume, effect of foreign ions on chelation and recovery were investigated. 1.5 g of surfactant coated C18 adsorbs 40 mg of the Schiff s base which in turn can retain 15.0 ± 0.9 mg of each of the two ions. The limit of detection (3?) for Pb(II) was found to be 3.20 ng L-1. The enrichment factor for both ions are 100. The mentioned method was successfully applied on determination of lead in different water samples. The ions were also speciated by means of three columns system.

    We describe the use of Co(III) Schiff base-DNA conjugates, a versatile class of research tools that target C2H2 transcription factors, to inhibit the Hedgehog (Hh) pathway. In developing mammalian embryos, Hh signaling is critical for the formation and development of many tissues and organs. Inappropriate activation of the Hedgehog (Hh) pathway has been implicated in a variety of cancers including medulloblastomas and basal cell carcinomas. It is well known that Hh regulates the activity of the Gli family of C2H2 zinc finger transcription factors in mammals. In Drosophila the function of the Gli proteins is performed by a single transcription factor with an identical DNA binding consensus sequence, Cubitus Interruptus (Ci). We have demonstrated previously that conjugation of a specific 17 base-pair oligonucleotide to a Co(III) Schiff base complex results in a targeted inhibitor of the Snail family C2H2 zinc finger transcription factors. Modification of the oligonucleotide sequence in the Co(III) Schiff base-DNA conjugate to that of Ci’s consensus sequence (Co(III)-Ci) generates an equally selective inhibitor of Ci. Co(III)-Ci irreversibly binds the Ci zinc finger domain and prevents it from binding DNA in vitro. In a Ci responsive tissue culture reporter gene assay, Co(III)-Ci reduces the transcriptional activity of Ci in a concentration dependent manner. In addition, injection of wild-type Drosophila embryos with Co(III)-Ci phenocopies a Ci loss of function phenotype, demonstrating effectiveness in vivo. This study provides evidence that Co(III) Schiff base-DNA conjugates are a versatile class of specific and potent tools for studying zinc finger domain proteins and have potential applications as customizable anti-cancer therapeutics.

Alkane oxidation activities of the metal complexes were studied on cyclohexane as substrate. The ligands and their metal complexes were evaluated for their antimicrobial activity against Corynebacterium xerosis, Bacillus brevis, Bacillus megaterium, Bacillus cereus, Mycobacterium smegmatis, Staphylococcus aureus, Micrococcus luteus and Enterococcus faecalis (as Gram-positive bacteria) and Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Escherichia coli, Yersinia enterocolitica, Klebsiella fragilis, Saccharomyces cerevisiae, and Candida albicans (as Gram-negative bacteria). The antioxidant properties of the Schiff base ligands were evaluated in a series of in vitro tests: 1,1-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH rad ) free radical scavenging and reducing power activity of superoxide anion radical generated non-enzymatic systems. Electrochemical and thermal properties of the compounds were investigated.

    Cellular Retinoic Acid Binding Protein II (CRABPII) has been re-engineered to specifically bind and react with all–trans-retinal to form a protonated Schiff base. Each step of this process has been dissected and four residues (Lys132, Tyr134, Arg111, Glu121) within the CRABPII binding site have been identified as crucial for imine formation and/or protonation. The precise role of each residue has been examined through site directed mutagenesis and crystallographic studies. The crystal structure of the R132K:L121E-CRABPII double mutant suggests a direct interaction between engineered Glu121 and the native Arg111, which is critical for both Schiff base formation and protonation.

    The coordination modes of copper(II) complexes of Schiff base-derived coumarin ligands, which had previously shown good anti-Candida activity, were investigated by pH-potentiometric and UV-Vis spectroscopic methods. These studies confirmed the coordination mode of the ligands to be through the N of the imine and deprotonated phenol of the coumarin-derived ligand in solution. In addition, the more active complexes and their corresponding ligands were investigated in the presence of copper(II) in liquid and frozen solution by ESR spectroscopic methods. A series of secondary amine derivatives of the Schiff base ligands, were isolated with good solubility characteristics but showed little anti-Candida activity. However, cytotoxicity studies of the secondary amines, together with the copper complexes and their corresponding ligands, against human colon cancer and human breast cancer cells identified the chemotherapeutic potential of these new ligands.

    The Bürgi–Dunitz angle (?BD) describes the trajectory of approach of a nucleophile to an electrophile. The adoption of a stereoelectronically favorable ?BD can necessitate significant reactive-group repositioning over the course of bond formation. In the context of enzyme catalysis, interactions with the protein constrain substrate rotation, which could necessitate structural transformations during bond formation. To probe this theoretical framework vis-à-vis biocatalysis, Schiff-base formation was analysed in Francisella tularensis trans­aldolase (TAL). Crystal structures of wild-type and Lys?Met mutant TAL in covalent and noncovalent complexes with fructose 6-­phosphate and sedoheptulose 7-phosphate clarify the mechanism of catalysis and reveal that substrate keto moieties undergo significant conformational changes during Schiff-base formation. Structural changes compelled by the trajectory considerations discussed here bear relevance to bond formation in a variety of constrained enzymic/engineered systems and can inform the design of covalent therapeutics.

    Novel Schiff base (HL) ligand is prepared via condensation of 4-aminoantipyrine and 2-aminobenzoic acid. The ligand is characterized based on elemental analysis, mass, IR and 1H NMR spectra. Metal complexes are reported and characterized based on elemental analyses, IR, 1H NMR, solid reflectance, magnetic moment, molar conductance and thermal analyses (TGA, DrTGA and DTA). The molar conductance data reveal that all the metal chelates are non-electrolytes. IR spectra show that HL is coordinated to the metal ions in a uninegatively tridentate manner with NNO donor sites of the azomethine N, amino N and deprotonated caroxylic-O. From the magnetic and solid reflectance spectra, it is found that the geometrical structures of these complexes are octahedral. The thermal behaviour of these chelates shows that the hydrated complexes losses water molecules of hydration in the first step followed immediately by decomposition of the anions and ligand molecules in the subsequent steps. The activation thermodynamic parameters, such as, E*, ?H*, ?S* and ?G* are calculated from the DrTG curves using Coats-Redfern method. The synthesized ligands, in comparison to their metal complexes also were screened for their antibacterial activity against bacterial species, Escherichia Coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus Pyogones and Fungi (Candida). The activity data show that the metal complexes to be more potent/antibacterial than the parent Shciff base ligand against one or more bacterial species.

The studies suggested the coordination of the ligand L to metal through azomethine imine nitrogen and furan oxygen atoms of Schiff base moiety. Thermogravimetric (TG/DTG) analyses data were studied and indicated high stability for all complexes and suggested the presence of lattice and/or coordinated water molecules in the complexes. Coats-Redfern method has been used to calculate the kinetic and thermodynamic parameters of the metal complexes. The spectral and thermal analysis reveal that all complexes have octahedral geometry except Cu(II) and Ni(II) complexes which can attain a square planner arrangements. The ligand and its complexes exhibited intraligand (?-?(?)) fluorescence and can potentially serve as photoactive materials.

    INDO-CI calculations successfully reproduce the striking changes in optical spectra that occur upon protonation of mono- and disubstituted porphyrin, chlorin, and bacteriochlorin Schiff base complexes. They ascribe the changes to Schiff base C=N ..pi..* orbitals which drop in energy upon protonation and mix with and perturb the ..pi..* orbitals of the macrocycle, a result consistent with resonance Raman data. The perturbation is predicted to affect not only transition energies and intensities but also dipole moment directions. The symmetry of the porphyrin and the substitution site of the chlorin are shown to play an important role, especially in governing whether the lowest energy transition will red shift or blue shift. Blue shifts are calculated for protonation of ketimine and enamine isomers of pyrochlorophyll a (PChl). Comparison with reported optical spectra suggests that PChl a Schiff base may undergo isomerization upon protonation. Resonance Raman data on CHO, CHNR, CHNHR/sup +/, and pyrrolidine adducts of chlorin demonstrate the isolation of the peripheral C=O and C=N groups from the macrocycle ..pi.. system intramolecular hydrogen bonding, and selective enhancement of v/sub C=N/ for those species with a split Soret band. V/sub C=N/ is observed with 488.0-nm excitation into the lower-energy Soret and absent for 406.7-nm excitation into the higher-energy Soret, a result predicted by the calculations. 44 references, 10 figures, 2 tables.

Metal complexes of the Schiff base were prepared from their chloride salts of Co(II), Ni(II), Cu(II), Cd(II), and Hg(II) in ethanol. The ligand along with its metal complexes have been characterized on the basis of analytical data, IR, electronic, mass, 1HNMR, ESR spectral data, thermal studies, magnetic susceptibility, and molar conductance measurements. The nonelectrolytic behaviour of the complexes was assessed from the measured low conductance data. The elemental analysis of the complexes confirm the stoichiometry of the type CuL2Cl2 and MLCl2 where M = Ni(II), Co(II), Cd(II), and Hg(II) and L = Schiff base. The redox property of the Cu(II) complex was investigated by electrochemical method using cyclic voltammetry. In the light of these results, Co(II), Ni(II), and Cu(II) complexes are assigned octahedral geometry, Cd(II), and Hg(II) complexes tetrahedral geometry. In order to evaluate the effect of metal ions upon chelation, both the ligand and its metal complexes were screened for their antibacterial and antifungal activities by minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) method.

All compounds are characterized by elemental analyses, molar conductance measurements, and molecular weight determinations. Bonding of these complexes is discussed in terms of their UV-visible, infrared, and nuclear magnetic resonance (1H, 13C, and 119Sn NMR) spectral studies. The results suggest that Schiff bases behave as monobasic bidentate ligands and coordinate with dibutyltin(IV) in octahedral geometry according to the general formula [Bu2Sn(L)2]. Elemental analyses and NMR spectral data of the ligands with their dibutyltin(IV) complexes agree with their proposed distorted octahedral structures. Few representative compounds are tested for their in vitro antibacterial activity against Gram-positive (B. cereus, Staphylococcus spp.) and Gram-negative (E. coli, Klebsiella spp.) bacteria. The results show that the dibutyltin complexes are more reactive with respect to their corresponding Schiff base ligands. PMID:25525422

Their high molar conductance values support their 1 : 2 electrolytic nature. The magnetic moment data provide evidence for the monomeric nature of the complexes. The X-band ESR spectra of the [CuL1](OAc)2 in DMSO solution at 300 and 77 K were recorded and their salient features are reported. The in vitro biological screening effects of the investigated compounds were tested against the bacterial species Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumoniae, Proteus vulgaris and Pseudomonas aeruginosa and fungal species Aspergillus niger, Rhizopus stolonifer, Aspergillus flavus, Rhizoctonia bataicola and Candida albicans by well diffusion method. A comparative study of inhibition values of the Schiff bases and their complexes indicate that complexes exhibit higher antimicrobial activity than the Schiff bases. Copper ions proved to be essential for the growth-inhibitor effect. The extent of inhibition appeared to be strongly dependent on the initial cell density and on the growth medium. PMID:23983523

    A new Schiff base ligand was synthesized by reaction of salicylaldehyde with 1,6-bis(4-chloro-2-aminophenoxy)hexane. Then the Schiff base complexes were synthesized by metal salts and the Schiff base. The metal to ligand ratio of metal complexes was found to be 1:1. The Cu(II) complex is proposed to be square planar and the Co(II), Ni(II), Mn(II) and Zn(II) complexes are proposed to be tetrahedral geometry. The Ti(III) and V(III) complexes are proposed to be a capped octahedron in which a seventh ligand has been added to triangular face. The complexes are non-electrolytes as shown by their molar conductivities (?M). The structure of metal complexes is proposed from elemental analysis, FT-IR, UV-vis, magnetic susceptibility measurements, molar conductivity measurements, Mass Spectra and thermal gravimetric analysis. In addition antimicrobial and antioxidant studies, cyclic voltammetry of the complexes, theoretical 1H NMR and HOMO-LUMO energy calculations of the new di-functional ligand were done. PMID:24792202

    Novel mixed ligand bivalent copper complexes [Cu. L. A. ClO4] and [Cu. L. A] where “L” is Schiff bases, namely 2-((3,4-dimethylisoxazol-5-ylimino)methyl)-4-bromophenol (DMIIMBP)/2-((3,4-dimethylisoxazol-5-ylimino)methyl)-4-chlorophenol (DMIIMCP), and “A” is heterocyclic compound, such as 1,10-phenanthroline (phen)/2,21-bipyridyl (bipy)/8-hydroxyquinoline (oxine)/5-chloro-8-hydroxyquinoline (5-Cl-oxine), have been synthesized. These complexes have been characterized by IR, UV-Vis, ESR, elemental analysis, magnetic moments, TG, and DTA. On the basis of spectral studies and analytical data, five-coordinated square pyramidal/four-coordinated square planar geometry is assigned to all complexes. The ligands and their ternary complexes with Cu(II) have been screened for antimicrobial activity against bacteria and fungi by paper disc method. The antimicrobial studies of Schiff bases and their metal complexes showed significant activity and further it is observed that the metal complexes showed more activity than corresponding Schiff bases. In vitro antitumor activity of Cu(II) complexes was assayed against human cervical carcinoma (HeLa) cancer cells and it was observed that few complexes exhibit good antitumor activity on HeLa cell lines. The DNA cleavage studies have also been carried out on pBR 322 and it is observed that these Cu(II) complexes are capable of cleaving supercoiled plasmid DNA in the presence of H2O2 and UV light.

    Five Schiff bases obtained from condensation of 4-methoxybenzohydrazide with related aldehydes, namely o-vanillin, vanillin, 5-bromovanillin, 5-chlorosalicylaldehyde and 5-bromosalicylaldehyde were prepared. A detailed structural and spectroscopic study is reported. The crystal structures of four members of the family were determined and compared with one another. The hydrazones obtained from 5-chlorosalicylaldehyde and 5-bromosalicylaldehyde resulted to be isomorphic to each other. The solid-state structures are stabilized by intra-molecular O-H?N interactions in salicylaldehyde derivatives between the O-H moiety from the aldehyde and the hydrazone nitrogen atom. All crystals are further stabilized by inter-molecular H-bonds mediated by the crystallization water molecule. A comparative analysis between experimental and theoretical results is presented. The conformational space was searched and geometries were optimized both in gas phase and including solvent effects. The structure is predicted for the compound for which the crystal structure was not determined. Infrared and electronic spectra were measured and assigned with the help of data obtained from computational methods based on the Density Functional Theory. PMID:25255482

    Background Based on the potential of Schiff base compounds to act as sources for the development of cancer chemotherapeutic agents, this in vivo study was performed to investigate the inhibitory properties of the synthetic Schiff base compound Cu(BrHAP)2 on colonic aberrant crypt foci (ACF). Methodology This study involved five groups of male rats. The negative control group was injected with normal saline once a week for 2 weeks and fed 10% Tween 20 for 10 weeks, the cancer control group was subcutaneously injected with 15 mg/kg azoxymethane once per week for two consecutive weeks, the positive control group was injected with 15 mg/kg azoxymethane once per week for two consecutive weeks and 35 mg/kg 5-fluorouracil (injected intra-peritoneally) for 4 weeks, and the experimental groups were first injected with 15 mg/kg azoxymethane once per week for two consecutive weeks and then fed 2.5 or 5 mg/kg of the Schiff base compound once a day for 10 weeks. Application of the Schiff base compound suppressed total colonic ACF formation by up to 72% to 74% (P<0.05) when compared with the cancer control group. Analysis of colorectal specimens revealed that treatments with the Schiff base compound decreased the mean crypt scores in azoxymethane-treated rats. Significant elevations of superoxide dismutase, glutathione peroxidase and catalase activities and a reduction in the level of malondialdehyde were also observed. Histologically, all treatment groups exhibited significant decreases in dysplasia compared to the cancer control group (P<0.05). Immunohistochemical staining demonstrated down-regulation of the PCNA protein. Comparative western blot analysis revealed that COX-2 and Bcl2 were up-regulated and Bax was down-regulated compared with the AOM control group. Conclusion The current study demonstrated that the Cu(BrHAP)2 compound has promising chemoprotective activities that are evidenced by significant decreases in the numbers of ACFs in azoxymethane-induced colon cancer.

    Heat shock protein 90 (Hsp90) is an emerging attractive target for the discovery of novel cancer therapeutic agents. Docking methods are powerful in silico tools for lead generation and optimization. In our mission to rationally develop novel effective small molecules against Hsp90, we predicted the potency of our designed compounds by Sybyl surflex Geom X docking method. The results of the above studies revealed that Schiff bases derived from 2,4-dihydroxy benzaldehyde/5-chloro-2,4-dihydroxy benzaldehyde demonstrated effective binding with the protein. Subsequently, a few of them were synthesized (1-10) and characterized by IR, (1)HNMR and mass spectral analysis. The synthesized molecules were evaluated for their potential to suppress Hsp90 ATPase activity by Malachite green assay. The anticancer studies were performed by 3-(4,5-dimethythiazol- 2-yl)-2,5-diphenyl tetrazolium bromide (MTT) assay method. The software generated results was in satisfactory agreement with the evaluated biological activity. PMID:24486109

    Five novel tin Schiff base complexes with histidine analogues (derived from the condensation reaction between L-histidine and 3,5-di-tert-butyl-2-hydroxybenzaldehyde) have been synthesized and characterized. Characterization has been completed by IR and high-resolution mass spectroscopy, 1D and 2D solution NMR (1H, 13C??and 119Sn), as well as solid state 119Sn NMR. The spectroscopic evidence shows two types of structures: a trigonal bipyramidal stereochemistry with the tin atom coordinated to five donating atoms (two oxygen atoms, one nitrogen atom, and two carbon atoms belonging to the alkyl moieties), where one molecule of ligand is coordinated in a three dentate fashion. The second structure is spectroscopically described as a tetrahedral tin complex with four donating atoms (one oxygen atom coordinated to the metal and three carbon atoms belonging to the alkyl or aryl substituents), with one molecule of ligand attached. The antimicrobial activity of the tin compounds has been tested against the growth of bacteria in vitro to assess their bactericidal properties. While pentacoordinated compounds 1, 2, and 3 are described as moderate effective to noneffective drugs against both Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria, tetracoordinated tin(IV) compounds 4 and 5 are considered as moderate effective and most effective compounds, respectively, against the methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus strains (Gram-positive).

Structural studies on 1 and 2 reveal the presence of a heterodinuclear [NiIIHgII] unit and [ZnIINiII] in which the central metal ions are connected to each other by two phenolate oxygen bridges. For complex 1 the Ni(II) ion adopts an elongated octahedral geometry (NiN2O4) while the Hg(II) ion assumes a distorted tetrahedral arrangement (HgO2Cl2) whereas for complex 2 the Zn(II) ion adopts an elongated octahedral geometry (ZnN2O4) while the Ni(II) ion assumes a distorted tetrahedral arrangement (NiO2Cl2). There are intermolecular Csbnd H···Clsbnd M interactions among the dinuclear complexes which are interconnected for 1 and 2. These intermolecular interactions result in the formation of a three dimensional structure for 1 and one dimensional zig-zag chains for 2.

    Multidrug resistance (MDR) in cancer mediated by the MDR1 P-glycoprotein (Pgp), a 140--180 kDa plasma membrane protein, renders chemotherapeutic treatment ineffective by pumping a variety of natural product cytotoxic agents and xenobiotic compounds out of cancer cells. Pgp has been a major target for synthesis and development of both therapeutic antagonists that block its transport function and diagnostic radiopharmaceuticals that are transported by the protein for use in functional imaging of Pgp transport activity in tumors in vivo. Most, but not all, compounds that interact with Pgp are hydrophobic and cationic at physiological pH. To further understand the Pgp targeting properties, the authors sought to directly evaluate the effect of charge of the complex on Pgp interactions. This could be done by comparing the cytotoxicity profile of a neutral complex to that of an identical, but positively charged, complex in both drug-sensitive and multidrug-resistant cancer cells. Thus, a neutral analogue of the Ga(III) and Fe(III) complexes was desired. Herein the authors describe the synthesis and structure of a novel neutral Schiff base Mg complex and evaluate its cytotoxic potency in human drug-sensitive KB-3-1 and multi-drug-resistant KB-8-5 tumor cells.

AS1 had been prepared by condensation between (2,2'-(ethane-1,2-diylbis(oxy))dibenzaldehyde) bisaldehyde and terephthalohydrazide in a ratio1:1. AS2 had been obtained by condensation between (2,2'-(ethane-1,2-diylbis(oxy))dibenzaldehyde) bisaldehyde and benzohydrazide in ratio 1:2. The structures of AS1 and AS2 were characterized by elemental analysis (EA), mass (MS), FT-IR and (1)H-NMR spectra, and thermal analyses (TG, DTG). The activation thermodynamic parameters such as ?E(?), ?H(?), ?S(?) and ?G(?) were calculated from the TG curves using Coats-Redfern method. It is important to investigate their molecular structures to know the active groups and weak bonds responsible for their biological activities. Consequently in the present work, the obtained thermal (TA) and mass (MS) practical results are confirmed by semi-empirical MO-calculations (MOCS) using PM3 procedure. Their biological activities had been tested in vitro against Escherichia coli, Proteus vulgaris, Bacillus subtilis and Staphylococcus aurous bacteria in order to assess their anti-microbial potential.

    The photophysical behaviour of the isolated retinal protonated n-butylamine Schiff base (RPSB) is investigated in the gas phase using a combination of ion mobility spectrometry and laser spectroscopy. The RPSB cations are introduced by electrospray ionisation into an ion mobility mass spectrometer where they are exposed to tunable laser radiation in the region of the S{sub 1} ? S{sub 0} transition (420–680 nm range). Four peaks are observed in the arrival time distribution of the RPSB ions. On the basis of predicted collision cross sections with nitrogen gas, the dominant peak is assigned to the all-trans isomer, whereas the subsidiary peaks are assigned to various single, double and triple cis geometric isomers. RPSB ions that absorb laser radiation undergo photoisomerization, leading to a detectable change in their drift speed. By monitoring the photoisomer signal as a function of laser wavelength an action spectrum, extending from 480 to 660 nm with a clear peak at 615 ± 5 nm, is obtained. The photoisomerization action spectrum is related to the absorption spectrum of isolated retinal RPSB molecules and should help benchmark future electronic structure calculations.

    New Schiff bases derived from p-methoxysalicylaldehyde and 2-(methylthiomethyl)anilines (substituted with methyl, methoxy, nitro) were synthesized and characterized by elemental analyses, FT-IR, NMR, electronic spectra and quantum chemical calculations. X-ray crystallography of two compounds showed the solid structures are stabilized by intramolecular and intermolecular H-bonds. The effect of OH?N interaction between the phenolic hydrogen and imine nitrogen on the proton and carbon NMR shifts, and the role of CH?O and CH?S contacts are discussed. The bond lengths and angles, (1)H and (13)C NMR data, E(LUMO-HOMO), dipole moments and polarizability of the compounds were predicted by density functional theory, DFT (B3LYP/6-31G??) method. The experimental geometric parameters and the NMR shifts were compared with the calculated values, which gave good correlations. The electronic effects of aryl ring substituents (methyl, methoxy and nitro) on the properties of the resulting compounds, such as the color, NMR shifts, electronic spectra and the calculated energy band gaps, dipole moments and polarizability are discussed. Increase in electron density shifted the phenolic proton resonance to lower fields. The methoxy-substituted compound has a small dipole moment and subsequent large polarizability value. Highest polarity was indicated by the nitro compound which also showed high polarizability due to its larger size. The energy gaps obtained from E(LUMO-HOMO) calculations suggest these compounds may have applications as organic semiconducting materials. PMID:25576935

    In this work, we obtain two ruthenium(ii) complexes with Schiff base cavities that exhibit significantly enhanced electrochemiluminescence (ECL) intensity and quantum efficiency due to Ru(bpy)3(2+) in aqueous solution, without the addition of tri-n-propylamine (TPrA). The great increase in ECL intensity is confirmed to be due to the electrochemical oxidation of phenolic hydroxyl groups and the resonant structure of imino radicals. Thus, the electrons are transferred intramolecularly to the Ru(iii) center, leading to efficient generation of the excited state of Ru(ii)*. Subsequently, we find that Co(2+) bonding with the salen cavity can selectively and quickly quench the ECL signal. Furthermore, we study the mechanism of the process by which Co(2+) hinders the oxidation of phenolic groups and blocks the electron transfer from imino radicals to the Ru center. Thus, a highly sensitive and selective ECL probe for the recognition of Co(2+) was developed with a stable response over a concentration range of 0.9 ?M to 6.3 ?M and a detection limit as low as 21 nM.

    Aromatic peptide amphiphiles are gaining popularity as building blocks for the bottom-up fabrication of nanomaterials, including gels. These materials combine the simplicity of small molecules with the versatility of peptides, with a range of applications proposed in biomedicine, nanotechnology, food science, cosmetics, etc. Despite their simplicity, a wide range of self-assembly behaviours have been described. Due to varying conditions and protocols used, care should be taken when attempting to directly compare results from the literature. In this review, we rationalise the structural features which govern the self-assembly of aromatic peptide amphiphiles by focusing on four segments, (i) the N-terminal aromatic component, (ii) linker segment, (iii) peptide sequence, and (iv) C-terminus. It is clear that the molecular structure of these components significantly influences the self-assembly process and resultant supramolecular architectures. A number of modes of assembly have been proposed, including parallel, antiparallel, and interlocked antiparallel stacking conformations. In addition, the co-assembly arrangements of aromatic peptide amphiphiles are reviewed. Overall, this review elucidates the structural trends and design rules that underpin the field of aromatic peptide amphiphile assembly, paving the way to a more rational design of nanomaterials based on aromatic peptide amphiphiles.

    In the present study, novel Schiff bases were synthesized by condensation of 3-amino-2-methyl quinazolin-4-(3H)-ones with different aromatic aldehydes. The 3-amino-2-methyl quinazolin-4-(3H)-one was synthesized from anthranilic acid via the 2-methyl benzoxazin-4-one. The chemical structures of the synthesized compounds were confirmed by means of Infrared (IR), 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR, Mass spectral, and Elemental analysis. These compounds were screened for anti-bacterial (Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 9144, Staphylococcus epidermidis ATCC 155, Micrococcus luteus ATCC 4698, Bacillus cereus ATCC 11778, Escherichia coli ATCC 25922, Pseudomonas aeruginosa ATCC 2853, and Klebsiella pneumoniae ATCC 11298)) and anti-fungal (Aspergillus niger ATCC 9029 and Aspergillus fumigatus ATCC 46645) activities, using the paper disk diffusion technique. The minimum inhibitory concentrations (MIC) of the compounds were also determined by the agar streak dilution method. Most of the synthesized compounds exhibited significant anti-bacterial and anti-fungal activities. Among the synthesized compounds, 3-(4-hydroxy benzylideneamino)-2-methyl quinazolin-4(3H)-one 4g and 4c was found to exhibit the highest anti-bacterial activity and 3-(4-hydroxy-3-methoxy benzylideneamino)-2-methyl quinazolin-4(3H)-one 4k exhibited the highest anti-fungal activity.

    A new Schiff-base ligand (1) with good fluorescence response to Al(3+), derived from 2-oxo-quinoline-3-carbaldehyde and nicotinic hydrazide, had been synthesized and investigated in this paper. Spectroscopic investigation revealed that the compound 1 exhibited a high selectivity and sensitivity toward Al(III) ions over other commonly coexisting metal ions in ethanol, and the detection limit of Al(3+) ions is at the parts per billion level. The mass spectra and Job's plot confirmed the 1:1 stoichiometry between 1 and Al(3+). Potential utilization of 1 as intracellular sensors of Al(3+) ions in human cancer (HeLa) cells was also examined by confocal fluorescence microscopy. PMID:24463240

    Hepatocellular carcinoma is one of the most prevalent cancers, with a high morbidity rate, even in developed countries. In the present study, the curative effect of the Schiff base (SB) heterodinuclear copper(II)Mn(II) complex on diethylnitrosamine (DEN)-induced liver carcinoma was investigated. Hepatocarcinoma was initiated by an injection of DEN and promoted by phenobarbital (0.05%) in the diet. In addition, the potential nephrotoxicity of SB was evaluated in a cisplatin-induced nephrotoxicity model. Rats were administered the SB complex (1 and 2?mg/kg body weight/day) for 24 weeks, and cancer progression was investigated by macroscopic, histopathological, and western blot examinations. The administration of SB decreased the incidence and the number of hepatic nodules in a dose-dependent manner by regulating inflammation response and the apoptotic pathway. Western blot analyses from the livers of rats treated with SB after DEN induction showed significantly enhanced Bax and caspase-3 levels, with a marked decrease in the levels of Bcl-2, NF-?B p65 and cyclooxygenase (COX)-2. Results from the nephrotoxicity study showed that, whereas cisplatin increased serum urea nitrogen and creatinine levels, no increase in serum biochemical parameters was detected in SB-treated animals. Moreover, protein levels of NF-E2-related factor-2 (Nrf2) and heme oxygenase-1 were lower, whereas nuclear factor-?B (NF-?B p65) and activator protein-1 levels were higher in the kidneys of cisplatin-treated animals compared with that of the SB groups. Therefore, the SB complex could be an alternative chemotherapeutic option for liver cancer treatment once its safety in clinical applications has been examined. PMID:25714251

    Two hydrazone Schiff base analogues, namely, (E)-N'-(4-hydroxy-3-methoxybenzylidene)benzohydrazide (3a) and (E)-N'-(4-methoxybenzylidene)benzohydrazide (3b), were synthesized using a mild, efficient method and characterized by (1)H NMR, mass spectrometry, elemental analysis, and single-crystal X-ray diffraction. X-ray analysis of a single crystal of 3a revealed a tetragonal, space group I4(1)/a structure, with an E-configuration around the azomethine (C8N2) double bond. In this structure, the NH and OH groups act as proton donors and the >CO and N groups as proton acceptors, and these facilitate hydrogen bond formation in the crystal state. Plausible intermolecular interactions were studied using 3D Hirshfeld surfaces and related 2D fingerprint plots. The optimized geometry, vibrational frequencies, Mulliken charge distribution, molecular electrostatic potential (MEP) maps, frontier molecular orbitals (FMOs), and associated energies of the ground state and the first single excited state were calculated using density functional theory (DFT) and time-dependant DFT calculations using the B3LYP/6-311G method. Vibrational frequencies calculated in the gaseous phase compared with experimental values measured in the solid state and showed good agreement with each other. The chemical reactivities of 3a and 3b were predicted by mapping MEP surface over optimized geometries and comparing these with MEP map generated over crystal structures. Mulliken charge distribution analysis and MEP map of 3a and 3b revealed that N(1), O(1), O(2) and O(3) atoms could act as electron donors and coordinate with metals and that these represented the most suitable sites for electrophilic attack. In fluorescence spectra, the absorption and emission spectra of 3a and 3b were similar in different polar solvents with few exceptions. In addition, both compounds exhibited dual emission spectra in acetone due to keto-enol tautomerism induced by photoexcitation. PMID:25804368

    A new spirocyclophosphazene, 2,2-bis(2-formylphenoxy)-4,4,6,6-bis[spiro(2',2?-dioxy-1'-1?-biphenylyl)]cyclotriphosphazene (3), was obtained from the reaction of 2,2-dichloro-4,4,6,6-bis[spiro(2',2?-dioxy-1'-1?-biphenylyl)]cyclotriphosphazene (2) with 2-hydroxybenzaldehyde. New phosphazene derivatives bearing Schiff base and dioxybiphenyl groups have been synthesized by the reactions of 3 with different amines. The structures of the compounds were defined by elemental analysis, IR, (1) H, (13) C, and (31) P NMR spectroscopy. All the synthesized compounds were screened for their antibacterial activity against both types of Gram-negative and Gram-positive bacteria. The most potent antibacterial compound of this series was compound 12 which has the low MIC value of 3.75-0.9375?µg/mL. Both minimal inhibitory concentrations (MIC) and inhibition zones were determined in order to monitor the efficacy of the synthesized compounds. New compounds were also screened for anticonvulsant, CNS depressant, and sedative-hypnotic activity. After i.p. injection to mice at doses of 30, 100, and 300?mg/kg body weight phosphazenes were examined in the maximal electroshock-induced seizure (MES) and subcutaneous pentylenetetrazole (scPTZ) induced seizure models in mice. The neurotoxicity was assessed using the rotorod method. Compounds 4, 5, and 11 were found to be active in both MES screen and scPTZ screen at 0.5?h. All except 12 showed more than 44% decrease in locomotor activity after 1?h of compound administration via actophotometer screen. CNS-depressant activity screened with the help of the forced swim method resulted in some potent compounds. Except for 7 and 12 other tested compounds were found to exhibit potent CNS depressants activity as indicated by increased immobility time. PMID:22415712

  4. Orientation of the protonated retinal Schiff base group in bacteriorhodopsin from absorption linear dichroism.

    Linear dichroism experiments are performed on light-adapted bacteriorhodopsin (BR568) films containing native retinal (A1) and its 3,4-dehydroretinal (A2) analogue to measure the angle between the chromophore transition dipole moment and the membrane normal. QCFF/pi calculations show that the angle between the transition moment and the long axis of the polyene is changed by 3.4 degrees when the C3-C4 bond is unsaturated. The difference vector between the two transition moments points in the same direction as the Schiff base (N----H) bond for the all-trans BR568 chromophore. Because the plane of the chromophore is perpendicular to the membrane plane, a comparison of the transition moment orientations in the A1- and A2-pigments enables us to determine the orientation of the N----H bond with respect to the absolute chromophore (N----C5 vector) orientation. The angles of the transition moments are 70.3 degrees +/- 0.4 degrees and 67.8 degrees +/- 0.4 degrees for the A1- and A2-pigments, respectively. The fact that the change in the transition moment angle (2.5 degrees) is close to the predicted 3.4 degrees supports the idea that the chromophore plane is nearly perpendicular to the membrane plane. The decreased transition moment angle in the A2-analogue requires that the N----H bond and the N----C5 vector point toward the same membrane surface. Available results indicate that the N----C5 vector points toward the exterior in BR568. With this assignment, we conclude that the N----H bond points toward the exterior surface and its most likely counterion Asp-212. This information makes possible the construction of a computer graphics model for the active site in BR568. PMID:2819231

All compounds showed significant (p<0.05) antiglycating activities with IC50 values (4.02x10(-24)±0.1-2.88x10(-1)±1.35 mM) which were lower than the standard positive control aminoguanidine (IC50: 1.51x10(-3)±2.11 mM). Moreover, compounds 1-7 were found to possess significant (p<0.05) DPPH radical scavenging properties with SC50 values (1.31x10(-19)±0.05 to 2.25x10(-1)±1.24 mM) lower than the standard ascorbic acid (SC50: 5.50x10(-3)±2.11 mM). Compound 6 was found to be the most potent anti-glycating molecule (IC50 value: 4.02x10(-24)±0.1 mM) while compound 5 was the most potent anti-oxidant molecule (SC50: 1.31x10(-19)±0.05 mM); both being significantly lower (p<0.05) than the respective positive controls used. The present data showed that the number of phenolic OH together with structural changes influence both the anti-glycation and anti-oxidant observed herein. This study provides for the first time a series of potential template molecules for possible pharmaceutical applications that warrant further investigation as potential anti-glycation and anti-oxidant agents which could be of importance in metabolic diseases including diabetes mellitus.

The Schiff base ligand 4-chloro-2-((4-oxo-4H-chromen-3yl) methylene amino) benzoic acid (L) has been synthesized by the reaction between chromone-3-carbaldehyde and 4-chloro-2-amino benzoic acid. The nature of bonding and geometry of the transition metal complexes as well as ligand L have been deduced from elemental analysis, FT-IR, UV-vis, (1)H NMR, (13)C NMR, ESR spectral studies, mass, magnetic susceptibility and molar conductance measurements. The complexes are found to have ML2 composition and are neutral in DMSO. Based on elemental, conductance and spectral studies, six-coordinated geometry was assigned for these complexes. The ligand L acts as tridentate and coordinates through nitrogen atom of azomethine group, hydroxyl of the carboxyl group and oxygen atom of keto group of ?-pyrone ring. The interaction of Cu(II) complex with CT- DNA was carried out by UV-vis, fluorescence titrations and viscosity measurements. The complex binds to DNA through intercalative binding mode. The nuclease activity of the above metal complexes shows that Cu(II) and Co(II) complexes cleave DNA through redox chemistry. The biological activity of the ligand and its complexes have been studied on four bacteria E.coli, B.subtilis, pseudomonas and Edwardella and two fungi penicillium and trichoderma by well disc and fusion method and found that the metal complexes are more active than the free Schiff base ligand.

    Drug resistance is a problem that hinders the numerous successes of chemotherapeutic intervention of cancer and continues to be a major obstacle for cures. Till date, several attempts have been made to develop suitable multidrug resistance (MDR) reversing agents. But, throughout the clinical development of MDR reversing agents, patients repeatedly suffer from toxicities. So far, some anticancer activity of Schiff bases which are the condensation products of carbonyl compounds and primary amines and their metal complexes has been described. But, overcoming multidrug resistance, by the use of such small molecules still remain unexplored. Under this backdrop, in search of less toxic and more effective MDR reversing agents our laboratory has developed the different metal chelates of Schiff base N-(2-hydroxy acetophenone)glycinate (NG) which is structurally similar to azatyrosine [L-?-(5-hydroxy-2-pyridyl)-alanine] that inhibits tumor formation by deactivating the c-Raf-1 kinase and c-Ha-ras signalling pathway. A decade-long research proposes possible strategies to overcome MDR by exploiting the chemical nature of such metal chelates. In this review we have catalogued the success of metal chelates of NG to overcome MDR in cancer. The review depict that the problem of MDR can be circumvent by synchronized activation of immunogenic cell death pathways that utilize the components of a host's immune system to kill cancer cells in combination with other conventional strategies. The current wealth of preclinical information promises better understanding of the cellular processes underlying MDR reversing activity of metal derivatives of NG and thus exposes several cellular targets for rational designing of new generation of Schiff base metal chelates as MDR reversing agents.

For a special reason, the structure of one of the complexes (2) was resolved by single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis and it indicates the presence of a distorted square-planar geometry in the complex. Analysis of the binding of these complexes with DNA has been carried out adapting UV-visible-, fluorescence-, as well as circular dichroism spectroscopic methods and viscosity experiments. The results indicate that the complexes bind via minor groove mode involving the hydrophobic surfactant chain. Increase in the length of the aliphatic chain of the ligands facilitates the binding. Further, molecular docking calculations have been performed to understand the nature as well as order of binding of these complexes with DNA. This docking analysis also suggested that the complexes interact with DNA through the alkyl chain present in the Schiff base ligands via the minor groove. In addition, the cytotoxic property of the surfactant-copper(II) Schiff base complexes have been studied against a breast cancer cell line. All six complexes reduced the visibility of the cells but complexes 2, 3, 5, and 6 brought about this effect at fairly low concentrations. Analyzed further, but a small percentage of cells succumbed to necrosis. Of these complexes (6) proved to be the most efficient aptotoxic agent. PMID:24854148

The Schiff-base, H 2L 2, upon condensation with hydrated lanthanide(III) nitrates, yields Ln III complexes of the general composition [Ln 2(L 2H 2) 3(NO 3) 4](NO 3) 2, where Ln = La, Pr, Nd, Sm, Eu, Gd, Tb, Dy and Ho. IR and NMR spectral data imply a bi-dentate bonding of the Schiff-base in its zwitterionic form (as L 2H 2) to the Ln III ions through two phenolate oxygens. The POM and DSC studies reveal that none of the Ln III complexes exhibits mesomorphism. Fluorescence studies show that the Tb III complex displays characteristic metal-centered fluorescence (solution state).

    In this study quantum mechanical calculations of force constants and normal mode analysis are used to elucidate the factors that influence the C=C and C=N stretching frequencies in polyenes and in protonated Schiff bases. The C=N stretching frequency is found to depend on both the C=N stretching force constant and the C=N-H bending force constant. Due to the contributions of these two modes, the C=N stretching frequency is particularly sensitive to the magnitude of the Schiff base counterion interactions and to the hydrogen bonding environment of the Schiff base nitrogen. Models for chromophore-protein interactions in the retinal binding site and for the photochemical transformations of bacteriorhodopsin and rhodopsin are evaluated in light of these results.

    Rhodopsin bears 11-cis-retinal covalently bound by a protonated Schiff base linkage. 11-cis/all-trans isomerization, induced by absorption of green light, leads to active metarhodopsin II, in which the Schiff base is intact but deprotonated. The subsequent metabolic retinoid cycle starts with Schiff base hydrolysis and release of photolyzed all-trans-retinal from the active site and ends with the uptake of fresh 11-cis-retinal. To probe chromophore-protein interaction in the active state, we have studied the effects of blue light absorption on metarhodopsin II using infrared and time-resolved UV-visible spectroscopy. A light-induced shortcut of the retinoid cycle, as it occurs in other retinal proteins, is not observed. The predominantly formed illumination product contains all-trans-retinal, although the spectra reflect Schiff base reprotonation and protein deactivation. By its kinetics of formation and decay, its low temperature photointermediates, and its interaction with transducin, this illumination product is identified as metarhodopsin III. This species is known to bind all-trans-retinal via a reprotonated Schiff base and forms normally in parallel to retinal release. We find that its generation by light absorption is only achieved when starting from active metarhodopsin II and is not found with any of its precursors, including metarhodopsin I. Based on the finding of others that metarhodopsin III binds retinal in all-trans-C(15)-syn configuration, we can now conclude that light-induced formation of metarhodopsin III operates by Schiff base isomerization ("second switch"). Our reaction model assumes steric hindrance of the retinal polyene chain in the active conformation, thus preventing central double bond isomerization. PMID:15322129

    The azo-dye Schiff's base of N2O2 dibasic ligand, H2L [N,N?-bis(5-(4-sulfanilamidophenylazosalicylidene)ethylenediamine] was prepared by the condensation of ethylenediamine with [5-(4-sulfanilamidophenylazo-salicylaldehyde] in ethanol. New complexes of with metal ions Cu(II), Ni(II), Co(II), Mn(II), Zn(II), Cd(II), Pt(IV), Fe(III) and Cr(III) are synthesized. Elemental, spectroscopic and thermal analyses as well as conductivity and magnetic susceptibility measurements are used to elucidate the structure of the newly prepared metal complexes. The azo-dye Schiff's base behaves as a di-negative N2O2 tetradentate ligand. The metal complexes exhibited square planar, tetrahedral and octahedral geometrical arrangements, the molar conductivity data indicates that all complexes are neutral. The thermogravimetry (TG) and differential thermoanalysis (DTA) of the Cu(II), Mn(II), Cr(III) and Co(II) complexes were carried out in the range of 30-800 °C. The complexes were decomposed in one and two stages of the Cu(II), Mn(II), Cr(III) and Co(II) complexes, respectively. Also, decomposition of the synthesized complexes is related to the Schiff's base characteristics. The thermal decomposition of the studied reactions was first order. The kinetic parameters for the decomposition steps in Cu(II), Mn(II), Cr(III) and Co(II) complexes thermograms have been calculated using Broido's method. In molecular modeling the geometries of azo-dye Schiff base ligand H2L and its metal(II/III/IV) complexes were fully optimized with respect to the energy using the 6-31G basis set. Antimicrobial activities of the azo-dye Schiff's base ligand and its corresponding metal complexes were screened against various organisms. The azo-dye Schiff's base ligand and some of its complexes were found to be biologically inactive.

    Schiff base (L) ligand is prepared via condensation of pyridine-2,6-dicarboxaldehyde with -2-aminopyridine. The ligand and its metal complexes are characterized based on elemental analysis, mass, IR, solid reflectance, magnetic moment, molar conductance, and thermal analyses (TG, DTG and DTA). The molar conductance reveals that all the metal chelates are non-electrolytes. IR spectra shows that L ligand behaves as neutral tridentate ligand and bind to the metal ions via the two azomethine N and pyridine N. From the magnetic and solid reflectance spectra, it is found that the geometrical structures of these complexes are octahedral (Cr(III), Fe(III), Co(II), Ni(II), Cu(II), and Th(IV)) and tetrahedral (Mn(II), Cd(II), Zn(II), and UO 2(II)). The thermal behaviour of these chelates shows that the hydrated complexes losses water molecules of hydration in the first step followed immediately by decomposition of the anions and ligand molecules in the subsequent steps. The activation thermodynamic parameters, such as, E*, ? H*, ? S* and ? G* are calculated from the DTG curves using Coats-Redfern method. The synthesized ligand, in comparison to their metal complexes also was screened for its antibacterial activity against bacterial species, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Staphylococcus pyogones and Fungi ( Candida). The activity data shows that the metal complexes to be more potent/antibacterial than the parent Schiff base ligand against one or more bacterial species.

The bidentate Schiff base ligands (X-DPMP) have been derived from condensation of 2,6-diisopropylaniline with mono and multisubstituted salicylaldehyde derivatives. The complexes have been characterized by elemental analysis, magnetic susceptibility, UV-Vis., IR and EPR spectral and electrochemical measurements. All the ruthenium(III) complexes are found to be stable, paramagnetic, low spin, redox active and display either quasi reversible or irreversible redox couples based on metal centre. They have exhibited catalytic activity for the oxidation of wide range of primary and secondary alcohols to corresponding aldehydes or ketones with moderate to high conversion in the presence of N-methylmorpholine-N-oxide (NMO) as co-oxidant.

    The [Co(naphophen)(PPh3)(OH2)]ClO4 and [Co(naphophen)(PBu3)(OH2)]BF4 (where naphophen = bis(naphthaldehyde)1,2-phenylenediimine) complexes were synthesized and chracterized by FT-IR, UV-Vis, 1H NMR, 13C NMR spectroscopy and elemental analysis techniques. The coordination geometry of the synthesized complexes were determined by X-ray crystallography. Cobalt (III) complexes have six-coordinated pseudo-octahedral geometry in which the O(1), O(2), N(1) and N(2) atoms of the Schiff base forms the equatorial plane. These complexes showed a dimeric structure via hydrogen bonding between the phenolate oxygen and the hydrogens of the coordinated H2O molecule. The theoretical calculations were also performed to optimize the structure of the complexes in the gas phase to confirm the structures proposed by X-ray crystallography. In addition, UV-Visible and IR spectra of complexes were calculated and compared with the corresponding experimental spectra to complete the experimental structural identification. The synthesized complexes were incorporated onto the Montmorillonite-K10 nanoclay via simple ion-exchange reaction. The structure and morphology of the obtained nanohybrids were identified by FT-IR, XRD, TGA/DTA, SEM and TEM techniques. Based on the XRD results of the new nanohybrid materials, the Schiff base complexes were intercalated in the interlayer spaces of clay. SEM and TEM micrographs of the clay/complex shows that the resulting hybrid nanomaterials has layer structures.

    Metal Schiff-base complexes show biological activity but they are usually insoluble in water so four new water-soluble metal Schiff base complexes of Na2[M(5-SO3-1,2-salben]; (5-SO3-1,2-salben denoted N,N";-bis(5-sulphosalicyliden)-1,2-diaminobenzylamine and M = Mg, Mn, Cu, Zn) were synthesized and characterized. The formation constants of the metal complexes were determined by UV-Vis absorption spectroscopy. The interaction of these complexes with bovine serum albumin (BSA) was studied by fluorescence spectroscopy. Type of quenching, binding constants, number of binding sites and binding stoichiometries were determined by fluorescence quenching method. The results showed that the mentioned complexes strongly bound to BSA. Thermodynamic parameters indicated that hydrophobic association was the major binding force and that the interaction was entropy driven and enthalpically disfavoured. The displacement experiment showed that these complexes could bind to the subdomain IIA (site I) of albumin. Furthermore the synchronous fluorescence spectra showed that the microenvironment of the tryptophan residues was not apparently changed. Based on the Förster theory of non-radiation energy transfer, the distance between the donor (Trp residues) and the acceptor metal complexes was obtained. The growth inhibitory effect of complexes toward the K562 cancer cell line was measured.

The solvents are selected to be covered a wide range of parameters (refractive index, dielectric constant and hydrogen bonding capacity). The UV-vis absorption spectra of Schiff base compounds are investigated in aqueous buffer solutions of varying pH and utilized for the determination of ionization constant, p Ka and activation free energy, ? G* of the ionization process. The biological activity against bacterial species and fungi as microorganisms representing different microbial categories such as (two Gram-negative bacteria, Eschericha coli and Agrobacterium sp.),three Gram-positive bacteria ( Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtlus and Bacillus megatherium), yeast ( Candida albicans), and fungi ( Aspergillus niger) were studied.

    Channelrhodopsins (ChRs), which form a distinct branch of the microbial rhodopsin family, control phototaxis in green algae. Because ChRs can be expressed and function in neuronal membranes as light-gated cation channels, they have rapidly become an important optogenetic tool in neurobiology. While channelrhodopsin-2 from the unicellular alga Chlamydomonas reinhardtii (CrChR2) is the most commonly used and extensively studied optogenetic ChR, little is known about the properties of the diverse group of other ChRs. In this study, near-infrared confocal resonance Raman spectroscopy along with hydrogen-deuterium exchange and site-directed mutagenesis were used to study the structure of red-shifted ChR1 from Chlamydomonas augustae (CaChR1). These measurements reveal that (i) CaChR1 has an all-trans-retinal structure similar to those of the light-driven proton pump bacteriorhodopsin (BR) and sensory rhodopsin II but different from that of the mixed retinal composition of CrChR2, (ii) lowering the pH from 7 to 2 or substituting neutral residues for Glu169 or Asp299 does not significantly shift the ethylenic stretch frequency more than 1-2 cm(-1) in contrast to BR in which a downshift of 7-9 cm(-1) occurs reflecting neutralization of the Asp85 counterion, and (iii) the CaChR1 protonated Schiff base (SB) has stronger hydrogen bonding than BR. A model is proposed to explain these results whereby at pH 7 the predominant counterion to the SB is Asp299 (the homologue to Asp212 in BR) while Glu169 (the homologue to Asp85 in BR) exists in a neutral state. We observe an unusual constancy of the resonance Raman spectra over the broad range from pH 9 to 2 and discuss its implications. These results are in accord with recent visible absorption and current measurements of CaChR1 [Sineshchekov, O. A., et al. (2013) Intramolecular proton transfer in channelrhodopsins. Biophys. J. 104, 807-817; Li, H., et al. (2014) Role of a helix B lysine residue in the photoactive site in channelrhodopsins. Biophys. J. 106, 1607-1617]. PMID:24869998

    Eleven mononuclear copper(II), nickel(II), zinc(II) and cobalt(II) complexes of Schiff base ligands derived from 3,5-dibromosalicylaldehyde/3,5-dichlorosalicylaldehyde were synthesized and determined by single crystal X-ray analysis. The crystal structures of complexes 1, 2, 4, 5, 6, 8 and 11 present the square-planar coordination geometry at the metal center and complexes 7, 9 and 10 show the distorted tetrahedral geometry. While one copper center in 3 has a square-planar geometry, the other copper is slightly distorted square-planar. The inhibitory activities of all the obtained complexes were tested in vitro against jack bean urease. It was found that Schiff base copper(II) complexes 1, 3, 5, 8 and 11 showed strong urease inhibitory activities (IC(50) = 1.51-3.52 ?M) compared with acetohydroxamic acid (IC(50) = 62.52 ?M), which was a positive reference. Their structure-activity relationships were further discussed. PMID:23142672

    New Fe(II) Schiff base amino acid complexes derived from the condensation of o-hydroxynaphthaldehyde with L-alanine, L-phenylalanine, L-aspartic acid, L-histidine and L-arginine were synthesized and characterized by elemental analysis, IR, electronic spectra, and conductance measurements. The stoichiometry and the stability constants of the complexes were determined spectrophotometrically. The investigated Schiff bases exhibited tridentate coordination mode with the general formulae [Fe(HL)2]·nH2O for all amino acids except L-histidine. But in case of L-histidine, the ligand acts as tetradentate ([FeL(H2O)2]·2H2O), where HL = mono anion and L = dianion of the ligand. The structure of the prepared complexes is suggested to be octahedral. The prepared complexes were tested for their toxicity on chick embryos and found to be safe until a concentration of 100 ?g/egg with full embryos formation. The interaction between CT-DNA and the investigated complexes were followed by spectrophotometry and viscosity measurements. It was found that, the prepared complexes bind to DNA via classical intercalative mode and showed a different DNA cleavage activity with the sequence: nhi > nari > nali > nasi > nphali. The thermodynamic Profile of the binding of nphali complex and CT-DNA was constructed by analyzing the experimental data of absorption titration and UV melting studies with the McGhee equation, van't Hoff's equation, and the Gibbs-Helmholtz equation.

All the compounds have been characterized by using elemental analysis, molar conductance, FT-IR, UV-Vis, 1H NMR, 13C NMR, mass spectra, powder XRD and thermal analysis (TG/DTA) technique. The elemental analysis suggests the stoichiometry to be 1:1 (metal:ligand). The FT-IR, 1H NMR, 13C NMR and UV-Vis spectral data suggest that the ligand coordinate to the metal atom by imino nitrogen and phenolic oxygen as bidentate manner. Mass spectral data further support the molecular mass of the compounds and their structure. Powder XRD indicates the crystalline state and morphology of the ligand and its metal complexes.

    New Ni(II) Schiff base complexes [{Ni(L)(H2O)Cl} where HL = 2-((pyridin-3-ylmethylene)amino)phenol] have been synthesized using the reflux and sonochemical methods. The nickel oxide NiO nanopowder was obtained from the metal complexes after calcination at 650 °C for 2 h. The Schiff base complexes and NiO powders were characterized in detail. The HL and its metal complexes were depicted high activity towards microorganism and breast carcinoma cells. The inhibitory activity against breast carcinoma (MCF-7) were detected with IC50 = 5.5, 12.5 and 9.6 for HL, complex (1) and complex (2), respectively. The optical band gap energy was 3.6, 3.0 and 2.37 eV for Ni complexes (1), (2) and NiO, respectively. The microstructure of the formed NiO powders appeared as cubic-like structure. Furthermore, magnetic properties of NiO sample were identified and paramagnetic property was found at a room temperature. The saturation magnetization and coercive force for the NiO sample were 0.47 emu/g and 42.68 Oe, respectively.

    Sterically hindered platinum(II) Schiff base complexes were prepared. Complex 4, which displays red emission with a quantum yield of 0.29 in a thin film and a self-quenching rate constant of 1×10(-7) dm(3) mol(-1) ?s(-1), was used to fabricate organic light-emitting diodes with single or double emissive layers (EMLs). An iridium(III) complex with a wide band gap was codoped into the electron-dominant EML to act as a deep electron trapper, and red-light-emitting devices with the highest current, power, and external quantum efficiencies of 20.43?cd?A(-1) 18.33?Lm?W(-1), and 11.7%, respectively, were fabricated. A high current efficiency and EQE of up to 14.69?cd?A(-1) and 8.3%, respectively, were achieved at a high brightness of 1000?cd?m(-2). The significant delay of efficiency roll-off is attributed to the bulky 3D structure of the norbornene moiety at the periphery of the Schiff base ligand of 4 and to the new device design strategy. The fabricated device had a projected lifetime (LT50) of 18,000?h. PMID:25145872

The ligand was characterized on the basis of elemental analysis, IR, 1H NMR, EI Mass and molecular modeling studies while the complexes were characterized by elemental analysis, molar conductance measurements, magnetic susceptibility measurements, IR, electronic and EPR spectral studies. All the complexes are non-electrolyte in nature. The covalency factor (?) and coefficient factor (?) suggest the covalent nature of the complexes. The ligand and its metal complexes have shown antifungal activity with their LD50 values determined by probit analysis against two economically important fungal plant pathogens i.e. Macrophomina phaseolina and Fusarium solani.

All the compounds have been characterized by using elemental analysis, molar conductance, FT-IR, UV-Vis, (1)H NMR, (13)C NMR, mass spectra, powder XRD and thermal analysis (TG/DTA) technique. The elemental analysis suggests the stoichiometry to be 1:1 (metal:ligand). The FT-IR, (1)H NMR, (13)C NMR and UV-Vis spectral data suggest that the ligand coordinate to the metal atom by imino nitrogen and phenolic oxygen as bidentate manner. Mass spectral data further support the molecular mass of the compounds and their structure. Powder XRD indicates the crystalline state and morphology of the ligand and its metal complexes. The thermal behaviors of the complexes prove the presence of lattice as well as coordinated water molecules in the complexes. Melting point supports the thermal stability of all the compounds. The in vitro antimicrobial effects of the synthesized compounds were tested against five bacterial and three fungal species by well diffusion method.

    A Schiff-base fluorescent probe - 2-((E)-(quinolin-8-ylimino)methyl)quinolin-8-ol (H7L) was synthesized and evaluated as a chemoselective Zn(2+) sensor. Upon treatment with Zn(2+), the complexation of H7L with Zn(2+) resulted in a red shift with a pronounced enhancement in the fluorescence emission intensity in ethanol solution. Moreover, other common alkali, alkaline earth and transition metal ions failed to induce response or minimal spectral changes. Notably, this chemosensor could distinguish clearly Zn(2+) from Cd(2+). Fluorescence studies on H7L and H7L-Zn(2+) complex reveal that the quantum yield strongly increases upon coordination. The stoichiometric ratio and association constant were evaluated using Benesi-Hildebrand relation giving 1:1 stoichiometry. This further corroborated 1:1 complex formation based on Job's plot analyses. This chemosensor exhibits a very good fluorescence sensing ability to Zn(2+) over a wide range of pH. PMID:25590829

    A newly synthesized Schiff base 3-aminoacetophenonesemicarbazone (AAS) has been used for the preparation of Ni(2+) selective PVC membrane electrode. The proposed electrode exhibits a Nernstian response over the nickel concentration range of 1.0×10(-7) to 1.0×10(-2)mol L(-1) with a slope of 30.0±0.3 mV/decade of concentration. The limit of detection as determined from the intersection linear segment of the calibration plot is 5.1×10(-8) mol L(-1). The electrode shows good selectivity towards nickel with respect to several alkali, alkaline earth, transition and heavy metal ions. The response time of the electrode is very fast (?10 s) and can be used for 17 weeks in the pH range of 2.0-9.8. The electrode can also be used in partially non-aqueous media having up to 20% (v/v) methanol, ethanol or acetone content with no significant change in the value of slope or working concentration range. To investigate the analytical applicability of the electrode, it was successfully applied as an indicator electrode in Ni(2+) ion potentiometric titration with EDTA, and in direct determination of nickel(II) in real samples.

    This work focuses the synthesis and characterization of few novel mixed ligand Schiff base metal complexes and their biological activities. For deriving the structural aspects, spectral techniques such as FT-IR, UV-Vis., 1H NMR, Raman, EPR and the physicochemical characterizations including elemental analysis, molar conductance and magnetic susceptibility method have been involved. All the complexes adopt square planar geometry. DNA binding ability of these complexes has been explored using diverse techniques viz. UV-Vis. absorption, fluorescence spectroscopy, viscometry and cyclic voltammetry. These studies prove that CT-DNA binding of the complexes follows the intercalation mode. Comparative DNA oxidative cleavage ability of the complexes has been done under ultraviolet photo radiation on pUC19 DNA. In addition, the biocidal action of the complexes has been investigated against few pathogenic bacteria and fungi by disc diffusion method. Importantly, the amylase inhibition activity of Cu(II) complex has been explored. The amylase inhibition property has been found to be increased upon increasing the complex concentration.

Our calculations are carried out on a few significant CASSCF geometrical configurations of the isomerization minimal energy path taken from the literature. Our excitation energies are qualitatively in agreement with previous Quantum Monte Carlo and post-Hartree-Fock calculations. We also employ TDDFT based methods, and investigate the outcome of using different approximations and several exchange-correlation functionals.

The prepared compounds were evaluated in transgenic zebrafish embryos (Tg: flil-1: enhanced green fluorescent protein (EGFP)) for antiangiogenic activity and in HepG2 liver carcinoma cell line for anti cancer activity. The Schiff bases of N-valproylglycine hydrazide derivatives were most potent in term of suppressing angiogenic blood vessels formation and anticancer activity at very low concentration, followed by the Schiff bases of valproic acid hydrazide derivatives which exhibited moderate activity, while the Schiff bases of N-valproyl-4-aminobenzoyl hydrazide derivatives, ethyl 4-(2-propylpentanamido)benzoate (VABE) and N-(4-(hydrazinecarbonyl)phenyl)-2-propylpentanamide (VABH) in contrast exhibited pro-angiogenic activity and weaker anticancer activity which mean that these derivatives targeted a common signaling pathway in term of affecting the blood vessels formation.

    Two series of new mono and binuclear complexes with a Schiff base ligand derived from the condensation of 3-acetylcoumarine and diethylenetriamine, in the molar ratio 2:1 have been prepared. The ligand was characterized by elemental analysis, IR, UV-visible, (1)H-NMR and mass spectra. The reaction of the Schiff base ligand with cobalt(II), nickel(II), copper(II), zinc(II) and oxovanadium(IV) lead to mono or binuclear species of cyclic or macrocyclic complexes, depending on the mole ratio of metal to ligand and as well as on the method of preparation. The Schiff base ligand behaves as a cyclic bidentate, tetradendate or pentaentadentae ligand. The formation of macrocyclic complexes depends significantly on the dimension of the internal cavity, the rigidity of the macrocycles, the nature of its donor atoms and on the complexing properties of the anion involved in the coordination. Electronic spectra and magnetic moments of the complexes indicate that the geometries of the metal centers are either square pyramidal or octahedral for acyclic or macro-cyclic complexes. The structures are consistent with the IR, UV-visible, ESR, (1)H-NMR, mass spectra as well as conductivity and magnetic moment measurements. The Schiff base ligand and its metal complexes were tested against two pathogenic bacteria as Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria as well as one kind of fungi. Most of the complexes exhibit mild antibacterial and antifungal activities against these organisms. PMID:25681806

    A new unsymmetrical tridentate Schiff base ligand was derived from the 1:1 M condensation of ortho-vanillin with 2-mercaptoethylamine. Nickel and palladium complexes were obtained by the reaction of the tridentate Schiff base ligand with nickel(II) acetate tetrahydrate and palladium(II) acetate in 2:1 M ratio. In nickel and palladium complexes the ligand was coordinated to metals via the imine N and enolic O atoms. The S groups of Schiff bases were not coordinated to the metals and S-S coupling was occured. The complexes have been found to possess 1:2 Metal:Ligand stoichiometry and the molar conductance data revealed that the metal complexes were non-electrolytes. The complexes exhibited octahedral coordination geometry. The emission spectra of the ligand and its complexes were studied in methanol. Electrochemical properties of the ligand and its metal complexes were investigated in the CH3CN solvent at the 100 mV s-1 scan rate. The ligand and metal complexes showed both reversible and quasi-reversible processes at this scan rate. The Schiff base and its complexes have been characterized by IR, 1H NMR, UV/Vis, elemental analyses and conductometry. The crystal structure of nickel complex has been determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction.

The octahedral geometry around Cu(II), Fe(III), Ni(II) and Zn(II) as well as tetrahedral geometry around Co(II) were suggested by UV-Vis spectra and magnetic moment data. The thermal degradation behavior of the Schiff base and its complexes was investigated by thermogravimetric analysis. The structure of the Schiff base and its transition metal complexes was also theoretically studied using molecular mechanics (MM+). The obtained structures were minimized with a semi-empirical (PM3) method. The in vitro antitumor activity of the synthesized compounds was studied.

UV-vis spectrophotometric study of the adduct formation of the zinc(II) complexes, [Zn(2,3-Salpyr)] and [Zn(3,4-Salpyr)], as donor with R(2)SnCl(2) (R=methyl, phenyl, n-butyl), PhSnCl(3) and Bu(3)SnCl as acceptors has been investigated in methanol, as solvent. The formation constants and the thermodynamic free energies were measured using UV-vis spectrophotometry. Titration of the organotin chlorides with Zn(II) complexes at various temperatures (T=283-313K) leads to 1:1 adduct formation. The results show that the formation constants were decreased by increasing the temperature. The trend of the reaction of R(n)SnCl(4-n) as acceptors toward given zinc complexes was as follows: PhSnCl3 > Me2SnCl2 > Ph2SnCl2 > Bu2SnCl2 > Bu3SnCl. By considering the formation constants and the ?G° of the complex formation for the Schiff base as donor and the M(II) as acceptor, the following conclusion was drawn: the formation constant for a given Schiff base changes according to the following trend: Ni > Cu > Co > Zn > Mn.

    Metal complexes are synthesized with Schiff bases derived from o-phthalaldehyde (opa) and amino acids viz., glycine (gly) L-alanine (ala), L-phenylalanine (pal). Metal ions coordinate in a tetradentate or hexadentate manner with these N 2O 2 donor ligands, which are characterized by elemental analysis, molar conductance, magnetic moments, IR, electronic, 1H NMR and EPR spectral studies. The elemental analysis suggests the stoichiometry to be 1:1 (metal:ligand). Based on EPR studies, spin-Hamiltonian and bonding parameters have been calculated. The g-values calculated for copper complexes at 300 K and in frozen DMSO (77 K) indicate the presence of the unpaired electron in the d orbital. The evaluated metal-ligand bonding parameters showed strong in-plane ?- and ?-bonding. X-ray diffraction (XRD) and scanning electron micrography (SEM) analysis provide the crystalline nature and the morphology of the metal complexes. The cyclic voltammograms of the Cu(II)/Mn(II)/VO(II) complexes investigated in DMSO solution exhibit metal centered electroactivity in the potential range -1.5 to +1.5 V. The electrochemical data obtained for Cu(II) complexes explains the change of structural arrangement of the ligand around Cu(II) ions. The biological activity of the complexes has been tested on eight bacteria and three fungi. Cu(II) and Ni(II) complexes show an increased activity in comparison to the controls. The metal complexes of opapal Schiff base were evaluated for their DNA cleaving activities with calf-thymus DNA (CT DNA) under aerobic conditions. Cu(II) and VO(II) complexes show more pronounced activity in presence of the oxidant.

    Interactions of 2-, 3- and 4-formyl phenylboronic acids (FPBAs) with sugars, amino sugars, aminoglycosides and various poly- and monoamines have been studied by UV-vis, (1)H and (11)B NMR titrations in water at variable pH. Behavior of 2-FPBA was anomalous in several aspects. Transformation of the acid into its conjugate base was slow in NMR time scale and was accompanied by intramolecular cyclization affording the respective benzoboroxole. The equilibrium constants for imine formation (K(imine)) between 2-FPBA and simple monoamines including amino sugars were ca. 2 orders of magnitude larger than those with other isomers. Still one order of magnitude larger K(imine) values were observed for 2-FPBA with aminoglycosides (kanamycin, amikacin, gentamicin, neomycin) and polyamines (spermine, spermidine). The examination of UV-vis and (11)B NMR spectra of imines formed with 2-FPBA showed that formally neutral Schiff bases in fact were zwitterionic species containing a protonated imine group and an anionic B(OH)(3)(-) group. The enhanced stability of imines with monoamines can therefore be attributed to the electrostatic stabilization provided by the zwitterionic structure and further increased stability of imines with antibiotics and polyamines is explicable by additional stabilization of the borate anionic group by ion paring with ammonium groups not involved in Schiff base formation. Thanks to high molar absorptivity of protonated imines interaction of 2-FPBA with aminoglycosides allows detecting them spectrophotometrically in a ?M concentration range in neutral aqueous solutions in the presence of sugars, amino sugars and amino acids.

From the elemental analyses data, 1:1 metal complexes are formed having the general formulae [MCl 3(HL)(H 2O)]·3H 2O (M = Cr(III), Fe(III)) and [MCl 2(HL)(H 2O) 2]· yH 2O (where M = Mn(II), Fe(II), Co(II), Ni(II), Cu(II) and Zn(II), y = 0-3). The important infrared (IR) spectral bands corresponding to the active groups in the ligand and the solid complexes under investigation were studied. IR spectra show that HL is coordinated to the metal ions in a neutral bidentate manner with ON donor sites of the enolic sulphonamide- OH and thiodiaza- N. The solid complexes have been synthesized and studied by thermogravimetric analysis. The thermal dehydration and decomposition of these complexes were studied kinetically using the integral method applying the Coats-Redfern equation. All the metal chelates are found to be non-electrolytes. From the magnetic and solid reflectance spectra, the complexes have octahedral structures. The antibacterial and antifungal activities of the synthesized ligand and its metal complexes were screened against bacterial species ( Escherichia coli and Staphylococcus aureus) and fungi ( Candida and Aspergillus flavus). The activity data show that the metal complexes have a promising biological activity comparable with the parent Schiff base ligand against bacterial and fungal species.

    Metal complexes of a new potentially tetradentate symmetrical Schiff base ligand (H2L) with Cu(II), Ni(II), Co(II), VO(IV), Zn(II), Cd(II), Ce(III), Fe(III) and UO2(VI) metal ions have been synthesized and characterized based on their elemental analyses, spectral (IR, UV-Vis, 1H NMR and mass spectra), magnetic and molar conductance studies as well as thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA). The synthesized complexes have the general formula [MHxL(H2O)yXn]: x = 0-1, y = 0-4 and n = 0-1; where: L = dianion of 6-hydroxy-5-[N-(2-{[(1E)-1-(6-hydroxy-2,4-dioxo-3,4-dihydro-2H-1,3-thiazin-5-yl)ethylidene]amino}ethyl) ethanimidoyl]-2H-1,3-thiazine-2,4(3H)-dione and X = nitrate or sulphate anion. The ligand behaves as diabasic tetradentate N2O2 sites, except in cases of Co(II), VO(IV) and UO2(VI) metal ions, it behaves as monobasic tetradentate Schiff base ligand. The metal complexes exhibited square planar, square-pyramidal and octahedral geometrical arrangements except for Ce(III) and UO2(VI) complexes, they are octa-coordinated. The Coats-Redfern equation was used to calculate the kinetic and thermodynamic parameters for the different thermal decomposition stages of some complexes. Structural parameters of the ligand and its metal complexes have been theoretically computed on the basis of semiemperical PM3 level, and the results were correlated with their experimental data. The antimicrobial activities of the ligand and its metal complexes were tested against some Gram-positive and Gram-negative bacteria; and fungus strain and the results were discussed.

    On the basis of self-assembly from the divinylphenyl-modified Salen-type Schiff-base ligands H2L(1) (N,N'-bis(5-(3'-vinylphenyl)-3-methoxy-salicylidene)ethylene-1,2-diamine) or H2L(2) (N,N'-bis(5-(3'-vinylphenyl)-3-methoxy-salicylidene)phenylene-1,2-diamine) with Zn(OAc)2·2H2O and Ln(NO3)3·6H2O in the presence of pyridine (Py), two series of heterobinuclear Zn-Ln complexes [Zn(L(n))(Py)Ln(NO3)3] (n = 1, Ln = La, 1; Ln = Nd, 2; or Ln = Gd, 3 and n = 2, Ln = La, 4; Ln = Nd, 5; or Ln = Gd, 6) are obtained, respectively. Further, through the physical doping and the controlled copolymerization with methyl methacrylate (MMA), two kinds of PMMA-supported hybrid materials, doped PMMA/[Zn(L(n))(Py)Ln(NO3)3] and Wolf Type II Zn(2+)-Ln(3+)-containing metallopolymers Poly(MMA-co-[Zn(L(n))(Py)Ln(NO3)3]), are obtained, respectively. The result of their solid photophysical properties shows the strong and characteristic near-infrared (NIR) luminescent Nd(3+)-centered emissions for both PMMA/[Zn(L(n))(Py)Nd(NO3)3] and Poly(MMA-co-[Zn(L(n))(Py)Nd(NO3)3]), where ethylene-linked hybrid materials endow relatively higher intrinsic quantum yields due to the sensitization from both (1)LC and (3)LC of the chromorphore than those from only (1)LC in phenylene-linked hybrid materials, and the concentration self-quenching of Nd(3+)-based NIR luminescence could be effectively prevented for the copolymerized hybrid materials in comparison with the doped hybrid materials.

    The efficiency, as steel-corrosion inhibitors in 0.1 M and 1 M H 2SO 4, of two Schiff bases, 2-{[(4-methoxyphenyl)imino]methyl}phenol and 1-{[(4-methoxyphenyl)imino]methyl}-2-naphthol, (abbreviated SB-1 and SB-2, respectively) was investigated by Tafel extrapolation and linear polarization methods. Corrosion parameters and adsorption isotherms were determined from current-potential curves. It was found that the percent inhibition efficiencies ( ?%) and surface coverage ( ?) increase with an increases in the concentrations of inhibitors. The results showed that these compounds act as good corrosion inhibitors especially at high concentrations. The adsorption of used compounds on the steel surface obeys Langmuir's isotherm. Obvious correlation was found between corrosion inhibition efficiency and quantum chemical parameters obtained by B3LYP/6-31g(d) method. The obtained theoretical results have been compared with the experimental findings.

    New series of three bidentate N, O donor type Schiff bases (L (1) )-(L (3) ) were prepared by using ethylene-1,2-diamine with 5-methyl furfural, 2-anisaldehyde, and 2-hydroxybenzaldehyde in an equimolar ratio. These ligands were further complexed with Co(II), Cu(II), Ni(II), and Zn(II) metals to produce their new metal complexes having an octahedral geometry. These compounds were characterized on the basis of their physical, spectral, and analytical data. Elemental analysis and spectral data of the uncomplexed ligands and their metal(II) complexes were found to be in good agreement with their structures, indicating high purity of all the compounds. All ligands and their metal complexes were screened for antimicrobial activity. The results of antimicrobial activity indicated that metal complexes have significantly higher activity than corresponding ligands. This higher activity might be due to chelation process which reduces the polarity of metal ion by coordinating with ligands. PMID:25147493

In this work FT-Raman spectrum and FT-infrared spectrum of C18H17N3O2 were investigated at 300 K. Vibrational wavenumber and wave vector have been predicted using Density Functional Theory (B3LYP) calculations with the 6-31 G(d,p) basis set. The description of the normal modes was performed by means of the potential energy distribution. A comparison with experiment allowed us to assign most of the normal modes of the crystal.

    Four complexes of the type [Ni(N-substituted-salicydenaminato)2], with bidentate Schiff base ligands (L1-L4), have been synthesized. The complexes were characterized by IR and elemental analysis methods. The solid state structures of three complexes (1-3) were determined by X-ray crystallography. The complexes show mononuclear, four-coordinate, slightly distorted square-planar trans-Ni(N2O2) geometry. The angles around the Ni center deviate slightly from 90° indicating a rectangular distortion. The chelating N-Ni-O angles are larger than 90° whereas the non-chelating N-Ni-O angles are smaller than 90°. The crystallograpic studies indicate that any steric/electronic effects due to CH3 and Br moieties have had no significant impact on the coordination sphere. PMID:24061373

The requirement of modern civilization with the heightened sense of environmental responsibilities and quality of life can be met by using some eco-friendly microbiocides with different spectra of activity. Some N{sub 2}O{sub 2} donor Schiff base compounds were synthesized and characterized by IR, NMR and ESR spectroscopy. These compounds were found effective in controlling the growth of biofilm of E. coli, Pseudomonas fluorescens and Thiobacillus thiooxidans on copper surface. The optimum concentration of these compounds are in the range of 1--10 ppm. Various electrochemical, microbiological and surface-analytical techniques were used to monitor the biofilm in the presence of microbiocides.

    Novel NNNN-donor ?-bis(bidentate) tetraaza acyclic Schiff base ligands with different substituents (CF3, N(CH3)2 or OH groups) were synthesized by the condensation reaction of triethylenetetramine with 4-substituted benzaldehydes. Triethylenetetramine tris(4-trifluoromethylbenzylidene) (TTFMB), triethylenetetramine tris(4-dimethylaminobenzylidene) (TTDMB) and triethylenetetramine tris(2,4-dihydroxybenzylidene) (TTDHB) were formed as N4 donor ligands. The formation of a five-membered imidazolidine ring from the ethylenediamine backbone as a spacer-cumbridging unit gives rise to a new type of imidazolidine ligand. The structure of the TTFMB and TTDMB were determined by single crystal X-ray crystallography.

    A series of certain novel Schiff bases as fenamate isosteres (VI:a-k) were synthesized to locate analgesic, anti-inflammatory agent with minimal ulcerogenic potential. The structures of the newly synthesized compounds were elucidated on the basis of their elemental analysis as well as IR, and NMR and mass spectroscopic data. All the compounds were evaluated for their anti-inflammatory activity by carrageenan induced paw oedema method. The compounds possessing good anti-inflammatory activity were further tested for analgesic, ulcerogenic, lipid peroxidation potentials and liver toxicity. Compounds (VI-c), (VI-f), (VI-h) and (VI-i) showed the best anti-inflammatory and significant analgesic activities at doses comparable to that of the standard drug Indomethacin. However, compounds (VI-c) and (VI-f) could be considered the most potent anti-inflammatory and analgesic molecules with maximum reduction in gastro-intestinal ulceration with no hepatocyte necrosis or liver degeneration.

    Fluorescence properties of Schiff base - N,N'-bis(salicylidene) - 1,2-phenylenediamine (LH2) is used to study the micelles formed by aggregation of different important bile acids like cholic acid, deoxycholic acid, chenodeoxycholic acid and glycocholic acid by steady state and picosecond time-resolved fluorescence spectroscopy. The fluorescence band intensity was found out to increase with concomitant red shift with gradual addition of different bile acids. Binding constant of the probe with different bile acids as well as critical micelle concentration was obtained from the variation of fluorescence intensity on increasing concentration of bile acids in the medium. The increase in fluorescence quantum yields, fluorescence decay times and substantial decrease in nonradiative decay rate constants in bile acids micellar environment points to the restricted motion of the fluorophore inside the micellar subdomains.

    The design and construction of molecular nanostructures with tunable topological structures are great challenges in molecular nanotechnology. Herein, we demonstrate the molecular engineering of Schiff-base bond connected molecular nanostructures. Building module construction has been adopted to modulate the symmetry of resulted one dimensional (1D) and two dimensional (2D) polymers. Specifically, we have designed and constructed 1D linear and zigzag polymers, 2D hexagonal and chessboard molecular nanostructures by varying the number of reactive sites and geometry and symmetry of precursors. It is demonstrated that high-quality conjugated polymers can be fabricated by using gas-solid interface reaction. The on-demanding synthesis of polymeric architectures with diverse topologies paves the way to fabricate molecular miniature devices with various desired functionalities.

    Schiff bases derived from 2-nitrobenzaldehyde with amino acids (glycine, methionine) and their Co(II), Ni(II) and Cu(II) complexes have been synthesized and characterized by various physico-chemical techniques. From spectral studies, it has been concluded that the ligands acts as bidentate molecule, coordinates metal through azomethine nitrogen and carboxylate oxygen. Mass spectrum explains the successive degradation of the molecular species in solution and justifies ML2 complexes. X-ray powder diffraction helps to determine the cell parameters of the complexes. Molecular structure of the complexes has been optimized by MM2 calculations and suggests a square planar geometry. The ligands and their metal complexes have been tested in vitro against Streptococcus, Staph, Staphylococcus aureus and Escherchia coli bacteria in order to assess their antibacterial potential. The results indicate that the biological activity increases on complexation.

    A series of new VO(IV) complexes of tetradentate N2O2 Schiff base ligands (L(1)-L(4)), were synthesized and characterized by FT-IR, UV-vis and elemental analysis. The structure of the complex VOL(1)?DMF was also investigated by X-ray crystallography which revealed a vanadyl center with distorted octahedral coordination where the 2-aza and 2-oxo coordinating sites of the ligand were perpendicular to the "-yl" oxygen. The electrochemical properties of the vanadyl complexes were investigated by cyclic voltammetry. A good correlation was observed between the oxidation potentials and the electron withdrawing character of the substituents on the Schiff base ligands, showing the following trend: MeO5-H>5-Br>5-Cl.

    A series of new VO(IV) complexes of tetradentate N2O2 Schiff base ligands (L1-L4), were synthesized and characterized by FT-IR, UV-vis and elemental analysis. The structure of the complex VOL1?DMF was also investigated by X-ray crystallography which revealed a vanadyl center with distorted octahedral coordination where the 2-aza and 2-oxo coordinating sites of the ligand were perpendicular to the '-yl' oxygen. The electrochemical properties of the vanadyl complexes were investigated by cyclic voltammetry. A good correlation was observed between the oxidation potentials and the electron withdrawing character of the substituents on the Schiff base ligands, showing the following trend: MeO < H < Br < Cl. We also studied the thermodynamics of formation of the complexes and kinetic aspects of their thermal decomposition. The formation constants with various substituents on the aldehyde ring follow the trend 5-OMe > 5-H > 5-Br > 5-Cl. Furthermore, the kinetic parameters of thermal decomposition were calculated by using the Coats-Redfern equation. According to the Coats-Redfern plots the kinetics of thermal decomposition of studied complexes is of the first-order in all stages, the free energy of activation for each following stage is larger than the previous one and the complexes have good thermal stability.

    Sensory rhodopsin II (SRII), a repellent phototaxis receptor found in Halobacterium salinarum, has several homologous residues which have been found to be important for the proper functioning of bacteriorhodopsin (BR), a light-driven proton pump. These include Asp73, which in the case of bacteriorhodopsin (Asp85) functions as the Schiff base counterion and proton acceptor. We analyzed the photocycles of both wild-type SRII and the mutant D73E, both reconstituted in Halobacterium salinarum lipids, using FTIR difference spectroscopy under conditions that favor accumulation of the O-like, photocycle intermediate, SII540. At both room temperature and -20 degrees C, the difference spectrum of SRII is similar to the BR-->O640 difference spectrum of BR, especially in the configurationally sensitive retinal fingerprint region. This indicates that SII540 has an all-trans chromophore similar to the O640 intermediate in BR. A positive band at 1761 cm-1 downshifts 40 cm-1 in the mutant D73E, confirming that Asp73 undergoes a protonation reaction and functions in analogy to Asp85 in BR as a Schiff base proton acceptor. Several other bands in the C=O stretching regions are identified which reflect protonation or hydrogen bonding changes of additional Asp and/or Glu residues. Intense bands in the amide I region indicate that a protein conformational change occurs in the late SRII photocycle which may be similar to the conformational changes that occur in the late BR photocycle. However, unlike BR, this conformational change does not reverse during formation of the O-like intermediate, and the peptide groups giving rise to these bands are partially accessible for hydrogen/deuterium exchange. Implications of these findings for the mechanism of SRII signal transduction are discussed. PMID:10715101

    The transition from nanoparticles suspended in aqueous solutions into solid fluorescent structures is developed for application in solid functional devices. The presented approach enables the organization of carbon dots into rod-like shapes that can still be re-dispersed into aqueous solution. Schiff bases forming at the surface of carbon dots not only protect their surface states, but also provide sites for tethering to other carbon dots. As a consequence, the large assemblies of CDs can come together to form regular, well ordered structures whilst still maintaining their photoluminescence properties. This opens up enormous possibilities for device manufacture, as these self-assemblies could be grown or grafted onto templates forming regular structures, and find innumerable applications ranging from optoelectronic devices, light harvesting to artificial photosynthesis.The transition from nanoparticles suspended in aqueous solutions into solid fluorescent structures is developed for application in solid functional devices.

  7. Connectivity of the retinal Schiff base to Asp85 and Asp96 during the bacteriorhodopsin photocycle: the local-access model.

    In the recently proposed local-access model for proton transfers in the bacteriorhodopsin transport cycle (Brown et al. 1998. Biochemistry. 37:3982-3993), connection between the retinal Schiff base and Asp85 (in the extracellular direction) and Asp96 (in the cytoplasmic direction)is maintained as long as the retinal is in its photoisomerized state. The directionality of the proton translocation is determined by influences in the protein that make Asp85 a proton acceptor and, subsequently, Asp96 a proton donor. The idea of concurrent local access of the Schiff base in the two directions is now put to a test in the photocycle of the D115N/D96N mutant. The kinetics had suggested that there is a single sequence of intermediates, L<-->M1<-->M2<-->N, and the M2-->M1 reaction depends on whether a proton is released to the extracellular surface. This is now confirmed. We find that at pH 5, where proton release does not occur, but not at higher pH, the photostationary state created by illumination with yellow light contains not only the M1 and M2 states, but also the L and the N intermediates. Because the L and M1 states decay rapidly, they can be present only if they are in equilibrium with later intermediates of the photocycle. Perturbation of this mixture with a blue flash caused depletion of the M intermediate, followed by its partial recovery at the expense of the L state. The change in the amplitude of the C=O stretch band at 1759 cm-1 demonstrated protonation of Asp85 in this process. Thus, during the reequilibration the Schiff base lost its proton to Asp85. Because the N state, also present in the mixture, arises by protonation of the Schiff base from the cytoplasmic surface, these results fulfill the expectation that under the conditions tested the extracellular access of the Schiff base would not be lost at the time when there is access in the cytoplasmic direction. Instead, the connectivity of the Schiff base flickers rapidly (with the time constant of the M1<-->M2 equilibration) between the two directions during the entire L-to-N segment of the photocycle.

    The chemical binding of bulky, mutagenic and carcinogenic polynuclear aromatic compounds to certain base-sequences in genomic DNA is known to inhibit DNA replication, and to induce mutations and cancer. In particular, sequences that contain multiple consecutive guanines appear to be hot spots of mutation. The objectives of this research are to determine how the base sequence around the mutagen-modified target bases influences the local DNA conformation and gives rise to mispairing of bases, or deletions, near the lesion. Oligonucleotides containing one, two, or three guanines were synthesized and chemically reacted with the mutagen anti-7,8-dihydroxy-9,10-epoxy-benzo(a)pyrene (BPDE), one of the most mutagenic and tumorigenic metabolites of benzo(a)pyrene. Adducts are formed in which only one of the guanines is modified by trans or cis addition to the exocyclic amino group. The BPDE-oligonucleotides are separated chromatographically, and the site of modification is established by Maxam-Gilbert high resolution gel electrophoresis techniques. The thermodynamic properties of duplexes using complementary, or partially complementary strands were examined. In the latter, the base opposite the modified guanine was varied in order to investigate the probability of mispairing of the modified G with A,T and G. The successful synthesis of stereospecific and site-specific mutagen-oligonucleotide adducts opens new possibilities for correlating adduct structure-biological activity relationships, and thus lead to a better understanding of base-sequence effects in mutagenesis induced by energy-related bulky polynuclear aromatic chemicals.

    Tridentate chelate complexes of Co(II), Ni(II), Cu(II) and Zn(II) have been synthesized from the chalcone based ligands 2-[1-(3-(1H-imidazol-1-yl)propylimino)-3-(phenylallyl)]phenol( HL1), 2-[1-(3-(1H-imidazol-1-yl)propylimino)-3-p-tolylallyl]phenol( HL2), 2-[1-(3-(1H-imidazol-1-yl)propylimino)-3-4-nitrophenylallyl]phenol( HL3). Microanalytical data, UV-vis spectrophotometric method, magnetic susceptibility measurements, IR, 1H NMR, Mass, and EPR techniques were used to characterize the structure of chelates. The electronic absorption spectra and magnetic susceptibility measurements suggest a distorted square planar geometry for the copper(II) ion. The other metal complexes show distorted tetrahedral geometry. The coordination of the ligands with metal(II) ions was further confirmed by solution fluorescence spectrum. The antimicrobial activity of the ligands and metal(II) complexes against the species Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis, Candida albigans and Aspergillus niger has been carried out and compared. The electrochemical behavior of copper(II) complex is studied by cyclic voltammetry.

    Novel bis Schiff base ligand, [N1,N3-bis(furan-2-ylmethylene)propane-1,3-diamine], was prepared by the condensation of furan-2-carboxaldehyde with propane-1,3-diamine. Its conformational changes on complexation with transition metal ions [Co(II), Ni(II), Cu(II), Mn(II), Cd(II), Zn(II) and Fe(III)] have been studied on the basis of elemental analysis, conductivity measurements, spectral (infrared, (1)H NMR, electronic), magnetic and thermogravimetric studies. The conductance data of the complexes revealed their electrolytic nature suggesting them as 1:2 (for bivalent metal ions) and 1:3 (for Fe(III) ion) electrolytes. The complexes were found to have octahedral geometry based on magnetic moment and solid reflectance measurements. Thermal analysis data revealed the decomposition of the complexes in successive steps with the removal of anions, coordinated water and bis Schiff base ligand. The thermodynamic parameters were calculated using Coats-Redfern equation. The Anticancer screening studies were performed on human colorectal cancer (HCT), hepatic cancer (HepG2) and breast cancer (MCF-7) cell lines. The antimicrobial activity of all the compounds was studied against Gram negative (Escherichia coli and Proteus vulgaris) and Gram positive (Bacillus vulgaris and Staphylococcus pyogones) bacteria. It was observed that the coordination of metal ion has a pronounced effect on the microbial activities of the bis Schiff base ligand. All the metal complexes have shown higher antimicrobial effect than the free bis Schiff base ligand. PMID:25767990

    Vibrational circular dichroism (VCD) spectroscopy was applied to study the structural change of a Ni(II) complex (denoted by [Ni(II)L]) with a chiral Schiff base ligand, (R)- or (S)-2,2'-bis(salicylideneamino)-1,1'-binaphthyl (denoted by H2L), in solution. The major signals in the mid-IR region were assigned on the basis of comparison with the DFT-calculated spectra. The complex transformed reversibly between the square-planar, tetrahedral and octahedral configurations, depending on solvents and temperature. The observed changes in the VCD peaks accompanying the transformation were analyzed in terms of the conformational change of the chiral ligand with a focus on the twisting angle in the Schiff base backbone and the dihedral angle of the binaphthyl group.

    The inhibitive action of self-assembled films derived from two ligands Schiff bases, including N, N'-ethylen-bis (salicylidenimine) and N, N'- ortho-phenylen-bis (salicylidenimine) on copper surface has been studied by electrochemical techniques in chloride and acidic solutions. It was found that when the concentration of the inhibitors was increased the inhibition efficiency was increased, too. The results of the electrochemical studies have illustrated that the inhibition efficiency of S- o-ph-S is higher than S-E-S. Both the Schiff bases obeyed the Langmuir isotherm and thermodynamics calculations revealed that S- o-ph-S had larger adsorption constant and more negative free energy of adsorption with respect to S-E-S. When the films were modified by propanethiol and 1-dodecanethiol, the corrosion resistance of mixed films was significantly increased.

The thermal studies suggested that the complexes are more stable as compared to ligand. In molecular modelling the geometries of Schiff's base and metal complexes were fully optimized with respect to the energy using the 6-31g(d,p) basis set. The mycological studies of the compounds were examined against the plant pathogenic fungi i.e. Rhizoctonia bataticola, Macrophomina phaseolina, Fusarium odum.

The complexes are insoluble in common organic solvents but soluble in DMF and DMSO. The measured molar conductance values in DMSO indicate that the complexes are non-electrolytic in nature. All the six metal complexes have been fully characterized with the help of elemental analyses, molecular weights, molar conductance values, magnetic moments and spectroscopic data. The analytical data helped to elucidate the structure of the metal complexes. The Schiff bases are found to act as tetradentate ligands using N2O2 donor set of atoms leading to a square-planar geometry for the complexes around all the metal ions. The binding properties of metal complexes with DNA were investigated by absorption spectra, viscosity measurements and cyclic voltammetry. Detailed analysis reveals that the metal complexes intercalate into the DNA base stack as intercalators. All the metal complexes cleave the pUC19 DNA in presence of H2O2. The Schiff bases and their complexes have been screened for their antibacterial activity against five bacterial strains (Staphylococcus aureus, Pseudomonas aeruginosa, Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Klebsiella pneumoniae) by disk diffusion method. All the metal complexes have potent biocidal activity than the free ligands.

    Two new Schiff bases (I) and (II) containing nitrogen-sulfur-oxygen donor atoms were designed and synthesized in a multi-step reaction sequence. The Schiff base (I) was used in solvent extraction of metal chlorides such as Cu2+ and Cr3+ as well as metal picrates such as Hg2+ and UO2(2+) from aqueous phase to the organic phase. The influences of the parameter functions, such as pH, solvent, ionic strength of aqueous phase, aqueous to organic phase and concentration of the extractant were investigated to shed light on their chemical extracting properties upon the extractability of metal ions. The effect of chloroform, dichloromethane and nitrobenzene as organic solvents over the metal chlorides extraction was investigated at 25±0.1 °C by using flame atomic absorption and the result is that the ability of extraction in solvents as follows: C6H5NO2>CHCl3>CH2Cl2 and the compositions of the extracted species have been determined. The metal picrate extraction was investigated at 25±0.1 °C by using UV-visible spectrometry. As well that the extraction of picrates metal such as UO2(2+) and Hg2+ with Schiff base(I) in absence and presence of 2-(2-aminoethyl) pyridine was investigated in chloroform. The extraction results revealed the presence of neutral donors 2-(2-aminoethyl) pyridine shifts the extraction percentage curves towards higher pH region, indicating a synergistic effect of this donors on extraction of UO2(2+) and Hg2+ by the studied Schiff base (I).

The effect of chloroform, dichloromethane and nitrobenzene as organic solvents over the metal chlorides extraction was investigated at 25 ± 0.1 °C by using flame atomic absorption and the result is that the ability of extraction in solvents as follows: C 6H 5NO 2 > CHCl 3 > CH 2Cl 2 and the compositions of the extracted species have been determined. The metal picrate extraction was investigated at 25 ± 0.1 °C by using UV-visible spectrometry. As well that the extraction of picrates metal such as UO 22+ and Hg 2+ with Schiff base(I) in absence and presence of 2-(2-aminoethyl) pyridine was investigated in chloroform. The extraction results revealed the presence of neutral donors 2-(2-aminoethyl) pyridine shifts the extraction percentage curves towards higher pH region, indicating a synergistic effect of this donors on extraction of UO 22+ and Hg 2+ by the studied Schiff base (I).

    The acidity constants of some newly synthesized Schiff base derivatives were determined by hard-model based multivariate data analysis of the spectrophotometric data in the course of pH-metric titration in 50% (v/v) methanol-water binary solvent. The employed data analysis method was also able to extract the pure spectra and pH-dependent concentration profiles of the acid-base species. The molecules that possess different substituents (both electron donating and withdrawing) on the ortho-, meta- and para-positions of one of the phenyl ring showed variable acidity constants ranging from 8.77 to 11.07 whereas the parent molecule had an acidity constant of 10.25. To investigate the quantitative effects of changing of substitution pattern on the acidity constant, a quantitative structure-property relation analysis was conducted using substituent constants and molecular descriptor. Some models with high statistical quality (measured by cross-validation Q2) were obtained. It was found that the acidity constant of the studied molecules in the methanol-water mixed solvent not only is affected by electronic features of the solutes but also by the lipophilic interaction between methanol part of solvent and the deprotonated solutes.

    The modes of toxic action (MOAs) play an important role in the assessment of the ecotoxicity of organic pollutants. However, few studies have been reported on the MOAs in rat toxicity. In this paper, the toxic contributions of functional groups in 1255 aromatic compounds were calculated from regression and were then compared with the toxic contributions in aliphatic compounds. The results show that some functional groups have same toxic contributions both in aromatic and aliphatic compounds, but some have not. To investigate the MOAs in rat toxicity, the distribution of toxic ratio (TR) was examined for well-known baseline and less inert compounds and thresholds of log TR=0.3 and 0.5 were used to classify baseline, less inert and reactive compounds. The results showed that some compounds identified as baseline compounds in fish toxicity were also classified as baseline compounds in rat toxicity. Except for phenols and anilines which were identified as less inert compounds in fish toxicity, aromatic compounds with functional groups such as ether, nitrile, nitrophenol, isocyanatoe and chloro were identified as less inert chemicals in rat toxicity. Reactive compounds identified in fish toxicity exhibit greater toxicity to rats. These compounds can undergo nucleophilic substitution, acylation and Schiff base formation with biological macromolecules. The critical body residues (CBRs) calculated from absorption and bioconcentration show that log 1/CBRs in rat toxicity are not equal to that in fish for some compounds. It suggests that the exposure route can affect the identification of MOAs between these two species for these compounds. PMID:25681569

    A series of metal complexes were synthesized from equimolar amounts of Schiff bases: 1,4-bis[3-(2-hydroxy-1-naphthaldimine)propyl]piperazine (bappnaf) and 1,8-bis[3-(2-hydroxy-1-naphthaldimine)-p-menthane (damnaf) with metal chlorides. All of synthesized compounds were characterized by elemental analyses, spectral (UV-vis, IR, (1)H-(13)C NMR, LC-MS) and thermal (TGA-DTA) methods, magnetic and conductance measurements. Schiff base complexes supposed in tetragonal geometry have the general formula [M(bappnaf or damnaf)]Cl.nH(2)O, where M=Cr(III), Co(III) and n=2, 3. But also Fe(III) complexes have octahedral geometry by the coordination of two water molecules and the formula is [Fe(bappnaf or damnaf)(H(2)O)(2)]Cl. The changes in the selected vibration bands in FT-IR indicate that Schiff bases behave as (ONNO) tetradentate ligands and coordinate to metal ions from two phenolic oxygen atoms and two azomethine nitrogen atoms. Conductance measurements suggest 1:1 electrolytic nature of the metal complexes. The synthesized compounds except bappnaf ligand have the antimicrobial activity against the bacteria: Escherichia coli (ATCC 11230), Yersinia enterocolitica (ATCC 1501), Bacillus magaterium (RSKK 5117), Bacillus subtilis (RSKK 244), Bacillus cereus (RSKK 863) and the fungi: Candida albicans (ATCC 10239). These results have been considerably interest in piperazine derivatives due to their significant applications in antimicrobial studies. PMID:17904895

    A new mononuclear octahedral cobalt(III) Schiff base complex [CoL3] (L = N-salicylidin-2-chloroethylimine) has been synthesized and characterized by elemental analyses (CHN) and FT-IR spectroscopy and used as precursor for preparation of Co3O4 nanoparticles. The crystal structure of this compound has been determined by single-crystal X-ray diffraction. The coordination sphere about cobalt(III) ion consists of three phenolato oxygens and three imino nitrogen atoms from three Schiff base ligands, thus forming a distorted octahedral geometry. Each Schiff base ligand acts as a chelate using phenolato oxygen and imino nitrogen. Subsequently, pure phase Co3O4 nanoparticles, with an average size in the range 10-20 nm, were obtained by solid-state thermal decomposition of the synthesized complex at 450 °C under air atmosphere for 3 h. The Co3O4 nanoparticles were characterized by Fourier transform infrared spectroscopy (FT-IR), X-ray powder diffraction (XRD), scanning electron microscopy (SEM) and transmission electron microscopy (TEM).

The solid complexes of the prepared Schiff base ligands with Ni(II), Cu(II) and Zn(II) ions were isolated and characterized by elemental and thermal analyses, IR, electronic and ESR spectra as well as conductance and magnetic susceptibility measurements. The results showed that most complexes have octahedral geometry but few can attain the tetrahedral arrangement. The TG analyses suggest high stability for most complexes followed by thermal decomposition in different steps. The kinetic and thermodynamic parameters for decomposition steps in Cu(II) complexes thermograms have been calculated.

    Synthesis of a series of newer mixed ligand copper(II) complexes of aminoacid Schiff base of the type [CuL(X)] (L = N-(2?-hydroxy acetophenone) glycinate, X = imidazole (im) 2, benzimidazole (benz) 3, pyridine (py) 4, hydrazine (hz) 5,8-hydroxyquinoline (8-hq) 6, pyrrolidine (pyrr) 7, piperidine (pip) 8, and nicotinamide (nic) 9) have been accomplished from the interaction of an aquated Schiff base complex, [CuL(H2O)]·H2O, 1 with some selected neutral nitrogen-donor ligands. The copper(II) Schiff base complex, [CuL(H2O)]·H2O, L = N-(2?-hydroxy acetophenone) glycinate was synthesized from the reaction of glycine and 2? hydroxy acetophenone and copper(II) acetate. The compounds were characterised by elemental analysis, spectral, magnetic and thermal studies. The density functional theory calculations were performed using LANL2DZ and 6-311 G(d, p) basis sets with B3LYP correlation functional to ascertain the stable electronic structure, HOMO-LUMO energy gap, chemical hardness and dipole moment of the mixed ligand complexes. A distorted square planar geometry has been conjectured for the complexes. Antibacterial activities of the ligand and its metal complexes have been tested against selected gram-positive and gram-negative strains and correlated with computational docking scores.

    A series of two biologically active Schiff base ligands L(1), L(2) have been synthesized in equimolar reaction of 2-aminobenzamide with pyrrol-2-carboxaldehyde and furan-2-carboxaldehyde. The synthesized Schiff bases were used for complexation with different metal ions like Co(II), Ni(II) and Cu(II) by using a molar ratio of ligand: metal as 2:1. The characterization of newly formed complexes was done by (1)H NMR, UV-Vis, TGA, IR, mass spectrophotometry, EPR and molar conductivity studies. The thermal studies suggested that the complexes are more stable as compared to ligand. In DFT studies the geometries of Schiff bases and metal complexes were fully optimized with respect to the energy using the 6-31+g(d,p) basis set. On the basis of the spectral studies an octahedral geometry has been assigned for Co(II) and Ni(II) complexes and distorted octahedral geometry for Cu(II) complexes. All the synthesized compounds, were studied for their in vitro antimicrobial activities, against four bacterial strains and two fungal strains by using serial dilution method. The data also revealed that the metal complexes showed better activity than the ligands due to chelation/coordination. PMID:25706679

    Biocompatible dendrimers with well-defined nanosizes are increasingly being used as carriers for drug delivery. 5-Aminosalicylic acid (5-ASA) is an FDA approved therapeutic agent recently found effective in treating retinal degeneration of animal models. Here, a water-soluble dendrimer conjugate of 5-ASA (AGFB-ASA) was designed to treat such retinal degeneration. The drug was conjugated to a generation 2 (G2) lysine dendrimer with a silsesquioxane core (nanoglobule) by using a hydrolysable Schiff base spacer. Incubation of nanoglobular G2 dendrimer conjugates containing a 4-formylbenzoate (FB) Schiff base spacer in pH 7.4 phosphate buffers at 37 °C gradually released 5-ASA. Drug release from the dendrimer conjugate was significantly slower than from the low molecular weight free Schiff base of 5-ASA (FB-ASA). 5-ASA release from the dendrimer conjugate was dependent on steric hindrance around the spacer. After intraperitoneal injection, the nanoglobular 5-ASA conjugate provided more effective 7-day protection against light-induced retinal degeneration at a reduced dose than free 5-ASA in Abca4?/?Rdh8?/? mice. The dendrimer 5-ASA conjugate with a degradable spacer could be a good candidate for controlled delivery of 5-ASA to the eye for treatment of retinal degeneration. PMID:24350906

The Schiff base ligand (L) and its metal complexes have been screened in vitro for their antibacterial and antifungal activities by minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) method. The DNA cleavage activity of ligand and its metal complexes were studied using plasmid DNA pBR322 as a target molecule by gel electrophoresis method. The brine shrimp bioassay was also carried out to study the in vitro cytotoxicity properties for the ligand and its metal complexes against Artemia salina.

    Schiff base disulfide ligands (H2L(1-6)) were synthesized from the condensation of cystamine with salicylaldehyde(H2L(1)), 5-chlorosalicylaldehyde(H2L(2)), o-vanillin(H2L(3)), 2-hydroxyacetophenone(H2L(4)), 3-methyl-2-hydroxyacetophenone(H2L(5)), and 2-hydroxy-1-naphthaldehyde(H2L(6)). H2L(1-6) reacts with the ruthenium precursor complex [RuHCl(CO)(PPh3)3] in benzene giving rise to six new ruthenium(II) complexes of general formula [Ru(CO)L(1-6)]. Characterization of the new complexes was carried out by using elemental and spectral (IR, UV-Vis, NMR ((1)H and (13)C) and Mass) techniques. An octahedral geometry was assigned for all the complexes based on the spectral data obtained. The catalytic efficiency of the new complexes in aldehyde to amide conversion in the presence of NaHCO3, N-alkylation of aniline in the presence of t-BuOK, and transfer hydrogenation of ketones in the presence of iPrOH/KOH reactions were studied. Furthermore, the effect of solvents and catalyst/substrate ratio on the catalytic aldehyde to amide conversion were also discussed. PMID:24747860

  17. Triaryl-Substituted Schiff Bases Are High-Affinity Subtype-Selective Ligands for the Estrogen Receptor

    PubMed Central

    2015-01-01

    We have explored the isoelectronic replacement of the C=C double bond found at the core of many nonsteroidal estrogen ligands with a simple Schiff base (C=N). Di- and triaryl-substituted imine derivatives were conveniently prepared by the condensation of benzophenones with various anilines without the need for phenolic hydroxy protection. Most of these imines demonstrated high affinity for the estrogen receptors, which, in some cases exceeded that of estradiol. In cell-based assays, these imines profiled as ER? agonists but as ER? antagonists, showing preferential reliance on the N-terminal activation function (AF1), which is more active in ER?. X-ray analysis revealed that the triaryl-imines distort the ligand-binding pocket in a new way: by controlling the separation of helices 3 and 11, which appears to alter the C-terminal AF2 surface that binds transcriptional coactivators. This work suggests that C=N for C=C substitution might be more widely considered as a general strategy for preparing drug analogues. PMID:24708493

    Two unsymmetrical Schiff bases, glyoxal salicylaldehyde oxalic acid dihydrazone (gsodh) and glyoxal salicylaldehyde malonic acid dihydrazone (gsmdh) and their Co(II), Ni(II), Cu(II) and Zn(II) complexes have been synthesized. The structures of metal complexes are elucidated on the basis of elemental analyses, molar conductance, magnetic susceptibility measurements, electronic, ESR, IR and NMR (1H and 13C) spectral studies. Both ligands show monobasic tetra-dentate behaviour, bonding through CO, two CN and a phenolate group. The electronic spectral studies in solid state indicate a square planar geometry for Ni(II) and Cu(II) complexes and a tetrahedral geometry for Co(II) complexes. However, Co(II) and Cu(II) complexes adopt octahedral geometry in DMSO solution. The ESR spectra of Cu(II) complexes in DMSO solution at 77 K predict an elongated tetragonal distorted octahedral geometry around metal ion and presence of unpaired electron in d orbital. Further, the structures of ligands and their Ni(II) complexes have been satisfactorily modelled by calculations based on density functional theory (DFT). The electronic spectra of Ni(II) complexes are also analyzed in depth with the help of time dependent-DFT (TD-DFT). The theoretical analyses of electronic structure and molecular orbitals have demonstrated that the high-energy absorption bands are M ? L charge transfer and low energy transitions are d-d transitions.

    This paper reports for the first time the irreversible thermally induced phase transition, accompanied by color change, and the vapochromic behavior of an amphiphilic, Lewis acidic Zn(II) Schiff-base complex, through detailed X-ray diffraction, thermogravimetric analysis and differential scanning calorimetry, and optical absorption studies. The unprecedented irreversible phase transition for such kind of complexes is associated with a thermal, lamellar-to-hexagonal columnar structural transition, which involves a different arrangement of each molecular unit within the assembled structure, H- and J-type aggregates, respectively, responsible for the thermochromic behavior. The vapochromism, investigated either in powder samples or in thermally annealed cast films, is related to the formation of 1:1 adducts upon exposure to vapors of strong Lewis bases and implies dramatic optical absorption variations and naked-eye observation of the change in color from red-brown to red. The chemisorption process is fast, completely reversible, reproducible, and selective for amines. The reversible switching of the chemisorption-desorption process in cast films is demonstrated by successive cycles, amine exposure and subsequent heating, by monitoring the substantial optical absorption changes in the visible region. Vapochromism of this material can potentially be used to detect vapors of volatile amines. PMID:25148651

    With a novel asymmetric Schiff-base zinc complex ZnL (H2 L?=?N-(3-methoxysalicylidene)-N'-(5-bromo-3-methoxysalicylidene)phenylene-1,2-diamine), obtained from phenylene-1,2-diamine, 3-methoxysalicylaldehyde and 5-bromo-3-methoxysalicylaldehyde, as the precursor, a series of heterobinuclear Zn-Ln complexes [ZnLnL(NO3 )3 (CH3 CN)] (Ln?=?La, 1; Ln?=?Nd, 2; Ln?=?Eu, 3; Ln?=?Gd, 4; Ln?=?Tb, 5; Ln?=?Er, 6; Ln?=?Yb, 7) were synthesized by the further reaction with Ln(NO3 )3 ·6H2 O, and characterized by Fourier transform-infrared, fast atom bombardment mass spectroscopy and elemental analysis. Photophysical studies of these complexes show that the strong and characteristic near-infrared luminescence of Nd(3+) , Yb(3+) and Er(3+) with emissive lifetimes in the microsecond range has been sensitized from the excited state of the asymmetric Schiff-base ligand due to effective intramolecular energy transfer; the other complexes do not show characteristic emission due to the energy gap between the chromophore and lanthanide ions.

    Although plasmid DNA (pDNA)-based immunization has proven efficacy, the level of immune responses that is achieved by this route of vaccination is often lower than that induced by traditional vaccines, especially for primates and humans. We report here a simple and potent method to enhance pDNA-based vaccination by using two different plasmids encoding viral or bacterial antigens. This method is based on coadministration of low concentrations of a recently described immunopotentiating, Schiff base-forming drug called tucaresol which has led to significant augmentation of antigen-specific humoral and cellular immune responses. Our data suggest that enhancement of the immune response with tucaresol might provide a powerful tool for the further development of pDNA-based immunization for humans. PMID:12438338

    Charge-transfer complexes (CTC) resulting from interactions of 1,3-di[( E)-1-(2-hydroxyphenyl) methylideneamino]-2-propanol Schiff base with some acceptors such as iodine (I2), bromine (Br2), and picric acid (PiA) have been isolated in the solid state in a chloroform solvent at room temperature. Based on elemental analysis, UV-Vis, infrared, and 1H NMR spectra, and thermogravimetric analysis (TG/DTG) of the solid CTC, [(Schiff)(I2)] (1), [(Schiff)(Br2)] complexes with a ratio of 1:1 and [(Schiff)(PiA)3] complexes with 1:3 have been prepared. In the picric acid complex, infrared and 1H NMR spectroscopic data indicate that the charge-transfer interaction is associated with a hydrogen bonding, whereas the iodine and bromine complexes were interpreted in terms of the formation of dative ion pairs [Schiff+, I{2/•-}] and [Schiff+, Br{2/•-}], respectively. Kinetic parameters were obtained for each stage of thermal degradation of the CT complexes using Coats-Redfern and Horowitz-Metzger methods. DC electrical properties as a function of temperature of these charge transfer complexes have been studied.

The title compounds have been screened for their biological activities including, antibacterial, antifungal, antioxidant, cytotoxic, enzymatic activities as well as interaction with SS-DNA which showed remarkable activities in each area of research. The DNA binding of the compounds 1-3 with SS-DNA has been carried out with absorption spectroscopy, which reveals the binding propensity towards SS-DNA via intercalation mode of interaction. The intercalative mode of interaction is also supported by viscometric results. The synthesized compounds were also found to be effective against alkaline phosphatase enzyme. They also show significant to good antimicrobial activity against six bacterial and five fungal strains. The MIC (minimum inhibitory concentration) for antibacterial activity ranges from 1.95-500 ?g/mL. Compounds 1-3 show cytotoxic activity comparable to the control. At higher conc. (100 ?g/L) compound 3 shows 100% activity means that it has killed all brine shrimps. They were also found to be effective antioxidant of 2,2-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl radical (DPPH) and show almost comparable antioxidant activity to that of the standard and known antioxidant, ascorbic acid.

    Three Schiff's bases AI (2(1-hydrazonoethyl)phenol), AII (2, 4-dibromo 6-(hydrazonomethyl)phenol) and AIII (2(hydrazonomethyl)phenol) were prepared as new hydrazone compounds via condensation reactions with molar ratio (1:1) of reactants. Firstly by reaction of 2-hydroxy acetophenone solution and hydrazine hydrate; it gives AI. Secondly condensation between 3,5-dibromo-salicylaldehyde and hydrazine hydrate gives AII. Thirdly condensation between salicylaldehyde and hydrazine hydrate gives AIII. The structures of AI-AIII were characterized by elemental analysis (EA), mass (MS), FT-IR and 1H NMR spectra, and thermal analyses (TG, DTG, and DTA). The activation thermodynamic parameters, such as, ?E?, ?H?, ?S? and ?G? were calculated from the TG curves using Coats-Redfern method. It is important to investigate their molecular structures to know the active groups and weak bond responsible for their biological activities. Consequently in the present work, the obtained thermal (TA) and mass (MS) practical results are confirmed by semi-empirical MO-calculations (MOCS) using PM3 procedure. Their biological activities have been tested in vitro against Escherichia coli, Proteus vulgaris, Bacillissubtilies and Staphylococcus aurous bacteria in order to assess their anti-microbial potential.

    The mononuclear complexes [ML2]0 (M = Co, Ni, Zn; HL - Schiff base ligand formed in situ from 2-pyridinecarbaldehyde and anthranilic acid, AA) can efficiently interact with unreacted AA molecules to produce CoL2·AA·H2O (1), NiL2·AA·H2O (2) and ZnL2·AA·0.25CH3OH·0.5H2O (3) cocrystals. Compounds 1-3 have been obtained as single crystals and characterized by elemental analysis, IR spectroscopy, thermal analysis, and single-crystal X-ray diffraction techniques. The compounds crystallize in the triclinic space group P1?, with 1 and 2 being isomorphous. Neutral ML2 molecules in 1-3 show no crystallographically imposed symmetry with the metal atoms octahedrally surrounded by two anionic ligands in a mer configuration. Of the two crystallographically distinct AA molecules, one molecule only is engaged in H-bonding N/Osbnd H⋯O interactions with ML2 units. The solid-state organization of the cocrystals is described as an insertion of the organic molecules between the layers of ML2 complexes as they occur in the reported native NiL2·H2O structure.

    A novel tyramine derived Schiff base, 3-4-dimethoxybenzylidene-4-aminoantipyrinyl-4-aminoethylphenol(L) and a series of its transition metal complexes of the type, ML 2Cl 2 where, M = Cu(II), Ni(II), Co(II) and Zn(II) have been designed and synthesized. Their structural features and other properties were deduced from the elemental analysis, magnetic susceptibility and molar conductivity as well as from mass, IR, UV-vis, 1H NMR and EPR spectral studies. The binding properties of these complexes with calf thymus DNA (CT-DNA) were investigated using electronic absorption spectroscopy, viscosity measurement, cyclic voltammetry and molecular docking analysis. The results reveal that the metal(II) complexes interact with DNA through minor groove binding. The interaction has also been investigated by gel electrophoresis. Interestingly, it was found that all the complexes could cleave the circular plasmid pUC19 super coiled (SC) DNA efficiently in the presence of AH 2 (ascorbic acid). The complexes showed enhanced antifungal and antibacterial activities compared to the free ligand.

    Novel Co(II), Ni(II), Cu(II) and Zn(II) complexes of Schiff base derived from quinoxaline-2,3-(1,4H)-dione and 4-aminoantipyrine (QDAAP) were synthesized. The ligand and its complexes were characterized by elemental analyses, molar conductance, magnetic susceptibility measurements, FTIR, UV-Vis., mass and 1H NMR spectral studies. The X band ESR spectrum of the Cu(II) complex at 300 and 77 K were also recorded. Thermal studies of the ligand and its complexes show the presence of coordinated water in the Ni(II) and Zn(II) complexes. The coordination behavior of QDAAP is also discussed. All the complexes are mono nuclear and tetrahedral geometry was found for Co(II) complex. For the Ni(II) and Zn(II) complexes, octahedral geometry was assigned and for the Cu(II) complex, square planar geometry has been suggested. The grain size of the complexes was estimated using powder XRD. The surface morphology of the compounds was studied using SEM analysis. Electrochemical behavior of the synthesized complexes in DMF at room temperature was investigated by cyclic voltammetry. The in vitro biological screening of QDAAP and its metal complexes were tested against bacterial species Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The fungal species include Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus flavus and Candida albicans. The DNA cleavage activity of QDAAP and its complexes were also discussed.

    Pyrazolealdehydes (4a-d), Knoevenagel's condensates (5a-d) and Schiff's bases (6a-d) of curcumin-I were synthesized, purified and characterized. Hemolysis assays, cell line activities, DNA bindings and docking studies were carried out. These compounds were lesser hemolytic than standard drug doxorubicin. Minimum cell viability (MCF-7; wild) observed was 59% (1.0 ?g/mL) whereas the DNA binding constants ranged from 1.4×10(3) to 8.1×10(5) M(-1). The docking energies varied from -7.30 to -13.4 kcal/mol. It has been observed that DNA-compound adducts were stabilized by three governing forces (Van der Wall's, H-bonding and electrostatic attractions). It has also been observed that compounds 4a-d preferred to enter minor groove while 5a-d and 6a-d interacted with major grooves of DNA. The anticancer activities of the reported compounds might be due to their interactions with DNA. These results indicated the bright future of the reported compounds as anticancer agents.

Three complexes with molecular formulas [Cr(L1)3], 1, [MoO2(L1)2], 2 and [WO2(L1)2], 3 were isolated from the reactions with L1. The corresponding reactions with HL2 produced the complexes [Cr(HL2)2], 4, [Mo2(CO)4O2(HL2)2], 5 and [W(CO)4(HL2)], 6. All complexes were characterized by elemental analysis, infrared, mass and 1H NMR spectroscopy. The molar conductivities of the complexes in DMF indicated nonelectrolytic behavior. The prepared ligands and their complexes exhibited intraligand (?-?*) fluorescence and can potentially serve as photoactive materials. The catalytic activity of the complexes towards to hydrogen peroxide decomposition reaction was investigated. Both the ligands and their complexes have been screened for antibacterial activities.

    A new series of photoluminescent Zn(ii)-salen type asymmetric Schiff base complexes, [ZnL], H2L = [N,N'-bis-(4-n-alkoxysalicylidene)-1,2-diaminopropane] (n = 12, 14 and 16) have been accessed and their mesomorphic and photophysical properties investigated. Though the ligands are non-mesomorphic, coordination to Zn(2+) ion induces liquid crystalline behaviour. The complexes exhibited a lamello-columnar phase (Coll) as characterized by a variable temperature powder X-ray diffraction (XRD) study. Intense blue emissions were observed for the complexes at room temperature in solution, in the solid state and in the mesophase. Aggregation properties of the complexes were explored in different solvents through absorption and photoluminescence studies. While de-aggregation to monomers occurred in coordinating solvents due to axial coordination to Zn(ii), aggregates were formed in the solution of non-coordinating solvents. Density functional theory (DFT) computation carried out on a representative complex using a GAUSSIAN 09 program at the B3LYP level suggested a distorted square planar geometry. The results of a time-dependent DFT (TD-DFT) spectral correlative study showed the electronic properties of the complex molecule to be in compliance with the spectral data. PMID:25803004

    A novel La (III) complex, [LaL(H2O)3]NO3·3H2O, with Schiff base ligand L derived from kaempferol and diethylenetriamine, has been synthesized and characterized by elemental analysis, IR, UV-visible, 1H NMR, thermogravimetric analysis, and molar conductance measurements. The fluorescence spectra, circular dichroism spectra, and viscosity measurements and gel electrophoresis experiments indicated that the ligand L and La (III) complex could bind to CT-DNA presumably via intercalative mode and the La (III) complex showed a stronger ability to bind and cleave DNA than the ligand L alone. The binding constants (Kb) were evaluated from fluorescence data and the values ranged from 0.454 to 0.659 × 105 L mol?1 and 1.71 to 17.3 × 105 L mol?1 for the ligand L and La (III) complex, respectively, in the temperature range of 298–310?K. It was also found that the fluorescence quenching mechanism of EB-DNA by ligand L and La (III) complex was a static quenching process. In comparison to free ligand L, La (III) complex exhibited enhanced cytotoxic activities against tested tumor cell lines HL-60 and HepG-2, which may correlate with the enhanced DNA binding and cleaving abilities of the La (III) complex.

    Four chiral Schiff base binuclear 3d-4f complexes (NdNi, NdCu, GdNi, and GdCu) have been prepared and characterized by means of electronic and CD spectra, IR spectra, magnetic measurements, and X-ray crystallography (NdNi). A so-called artifact peak of solid state CD spectra, which was characteristic of oriented molecules without free molecular rotation, appeared at about 470 nm. Magnetic data of the complexes in the solid state (powder) and in PMMA cast films or solutions indicated that only GdCu preserved molecular structures in various matrixes of soft maters. For the first time, we have used the changes of intensity of artifact CD peaks to detect properties of environmental (media solid state (KBr pellets), PMMA cast films, concentration dependence of PMMA in acetone solutions, and pure acetone solution) for chiral 3d-4f complexes (GdCu). Rigid matrix keeping anisotropic orientation exhibited a decrease in the intensity of the artifact CD peak toward negative values. The present results suggest that solid state artifact CD peaks can be affected by environmental viscosity of a soft mater matrix. PMID:22072930

    Bis-salicylaldiminato Schiff base ligands and their Zn(II) complexes derived from 2,3-Diaminomaleonitrile (DAMN) were synthesized. Their molecular structures, photophysical properties and mesogenic behaviors were investigated. The ligands and their Zn(II) complexes were characterized by using elemental analysis, FT-IR, 1H NMR and molar conductivity measurements. Photophysical properties of ligands and their Zn(II) complexes were investigated in different polar solvents by using UV-visible and fluorescence spectroscopic studies. Ligands emit green light whereas complexes emit orange light upon irradiation with UV-visible light. The liquid crystalline phases of ligands and their Zn(II) complexes were characterized by polarizing optical microscopy and differential scanning calorimetry. The ligand having longer 4-n-octadecyloxy chain (n = 18) displays columnar phase whereas the lower homologues (n = 16, 12) did not show mesophase. The Zn(II) complexes having 4-n-octadecyloxy end chain display smectic B like phase whereas other lower homologues are non mesogenic in nature. The thermal stability of the compounds were studied by using thermo gravimetric analysis. The density functional theory was carried out to obtain the stable molecular conformation, dipole moment, molecular orbitals and polarizability of the ligands and their Zn(II) complexes.

    The rates of deprotonation and reprotonation of the protonated Schiff base (PSB) are determined during the photocycle of nine bacteriorhodopsin mutants in which Trp-10, 12, 80, 86, 137, 138, 182 and 189 are individually substituted by either phenylalanine or cysteine. Of all the mutants, the replacement of Trp-86, Trp-182, and Trp-189 by phenylalanine and Trp-137 by cysteine is found to significantly alter the rate of the deprotonation, but not that of the reprotonation process. As compared with ebR, the Trp-86 mutation dramatically increases the rate of deprotonation of the PSB while the Trp-182 mutation greatly decreases this rate. Temperature dependence studies on the rate constants of the deprotonation demonstrate that the different energetic and entropic effects of the mutation are responsible for the observed different kinetic behavior of the Trp-86 and Trp-182 mutants as compared with that of ebR. In the case of Trp-86 mutant, a large decrease in both energy and entropy of activation suggests that the mutation of this tryptophan residue opens up the protein structure as a result of eliminating the hydrogen-bonding group on its side chain by a phenylalanine substitution. A correlation is observed between the proton pumping yield and the relative amplitudes of the slow deprotonation component but not with rate constants of the rise or decay process at constant pH. These results are best discussed in terms of the heterogeneity model (with parallel cycle) rather than back reaction model. PMID:1318094

    Double zwitterionic amino acid Schiff base, o-vanillylidene-L-histidine (OVHIS) and its copper complex (CuOVHIS) have been synthesized and characterized. CuOVHIS has distorted octahedral geometry, and OVHIS coordinates the copper ion in a tetradentate manner (N2O2). The pKa of OVHIS in aqueous solution was studied by potentiometric and spectrophotometric methods. DNA binding behavior of the compounds was investigated using spectrophotometric, cyclic voltammetric, and viscosity methods. The efficacy of DNA cleaving nature was tested on pUC19 DNA. The in vitro biological activity was tested against various micro organisms. The effect of CuOVHIS on the surface feature of Escherichia coli was analyzed by SEM. DPPH assay studies revealed that CuOVHIS has higher antioxidant activity. OVHIS inhibits proliferation of HCT117 cells with half maximal inhibition (IC50) of 71.15 ± 0.67. Chelation of OVHIS with Cu(II) ion enhances the inhibition of proliferation action (IC50 = 53.14 ± 0.67).

    A series of quinazolinone derived Schiff base derivatives 7-28 were synthesized and characterized as novel antioxidants and anti-inflammatory agents. The in vitro antioxidant activities of these compounds were evaluated and compared with commercial antioxidants ascorbic acid (AA), gallic acid (GA), butylatedhydroxytoluene (BHT), butylatedhydroxyanisole (BHA) employing 1,1-diphenyl-2-picryl-hydrazyl (DPPH) assay, 2,2-azinobis-(3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sufonic acid) (ABTS) assay and N,N-dimethyl-p-phenylenediamine dihydrochloride (DMPD) assay. The results revealed that IC50 of 17, 18, 23, 24, 25, 27 and 28 were lower than the IC50 of standards in all the three performed antioxidant assays indicating good activities of these compounds. In addition, in vitro anti-inflammatory activity of the synthesized compounds were evaluated and the results demonstrate that the compounds 9-12 exhibited excellent anti-inflammatory activity. Preliminary structure-activity relationship revealed that the compounds 17, 18, 23, 24, 25, 27 and 28 with electron donating moiety (OH, OCH3) were found to be excellent antioxidants and compounds 9, 10, 11 and 12 with electron withdrawing moiety (Cl, NO2) were found to be excellent anti-inflammatory agents.

The donor atoms and the possible geometry of the complexes were investigated by means of elemental and thermal analyses, molar conductance, magnetic moment, UV-Vis, IR, ESR and mass spectra. The ligands behaved as tetradentate, coordinating through the nitrogen atom of the azomethine group and the nearest nitrogen atom to it or oxygen atom of ?-hydroxyl group. The results of simultaneous DTA & TGA analyses of the complexes showed the final degradation product for these complexes is CuO. The spectral studies confirmed a four coordinate environment around the metal ion. The obtained results were supported by 3D molecular modeling of complexes using molecular mechanics (MM+) and semiempirical molecular orbital calculations (PM3). These complexes were also tested for their in vitro antimicrobial activities against some bacterial and fungal strains. Complex 2 was investigated for its cyctotoxic effect against human breast cancer (MCF7), liver carcinoma (HEPG2) and colon carcinoma cell lines (HCT116). This compound exhibited a moderate activity against the tested cell lines with IC50 of 10.3, 9.8 and 8.7 ?g/ml against MCF7, HCT116 and HEPG2, respectively.

    A new Schiff base compound, 5-(dimethylamino)-N?-(2-hydroxybenzylidene)naphthalene-1-sulfonohydrazide (R), has been synthesized, characterized, and employed as a selective fluorescence receptor for the recognition of sulfate anions. UV-vis absorption, fluorescence emission, 1H NMR spectra and DFT calculation studies on the system have been carried out to determine the nature of the interactions between R and anions. The results reveal that the deprotonation of the phenol without the need of a strong base leads to the formation of a hydrogen-bonding complex with a sbnd SO2sbnd NHsbnd group, which is responsible for the spectra changes. The deprotonation process for the selectivity recognition of sulfate can be tuned by the Brønsted-Lowry acid-base reaction in nonaqueous solutions, revealing that suitable phenolic hydroxyl acidity is the key factor for anion recognition selectivity.

    Copper(II) complexes with a new N-Substituted benzimidazolyl schiff base ligand are used as catalyst for the oxidation of 1-phenyl propyne. The oxidation is carried out under mild conditions using stoichiometric amounts of oxidant and catalytic amounts of Cu(II) complex as catalyst. Effect of acid/base, oxidant, morphology and surfactant has been studied. Two major products of phenyl propyne oxidation are the ?-diketonic product and a terminal aldehyde. Diketone is the major product under acidic conditions while aldehyde formation is highest under basic conditions. The maximum conversion is found with the NO3- bound complex. GC-MS is used to find the percentage yields of products. SEM and PXRD of the reused complexes as catalyst suggest that morphology affects the catalytic efficiency.

    A simple, rapid, and sensitive bioelectrochemical immunoassay method based on magnetic beads (MBs) has been developed to detect polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs). The principle of this bioassay is based on a direct competitive enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay using PAH-antibody-coated MBs and horseradish peroxidase (HRP)-labeled PAH (HRP-PAH). A magnetic process platform was used to mix and shake the samples during the immunoreactions and to separate free and unbound reagents after the liquid-phase competitive immunoreaction among PAH-antibody-coated MBs, PAH analyte, and HRP-PAH. After a complete immunoassay, the HRP tracers attached to MBs were transferred to a substrate solution containing 3, 3´, 5, 5´- tetramethylbenzidine (TMB) and hydrogen peroxide (H2O2) for electrochemical detection. The voltammetric characteristics of the substrate were investigated, and the reduction peak current of TMB was used to quantify the concentration of PAH. The different parameters, including the amount of HRP-PAH conjugates, the enzyme catalytic reaction time, and the pH of the supporting electrolyte that governs the analytical performance of the immunoassay have been studied in detail and optimized. The detection limit of 50 pg mL-1 was obtained under optimum experimental conditions. The performance of this bioelectrochemical magnetic immunoassay was successfully evaluated with tap water spiked with PAHs, indicating that this convenient and sensitive technique offers great promise for decentralized environmental applications.

    The incidence of methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus increased during the past few decades, so there is an urgent need of new antimicrobial agents if public health is concerned. Though the Schiff's bases and La(III) complex have enormous biological activity, but less attention was given in their synthesis. In the present investigation, we synthesized a new (E)-3-((2-hydroxynaphthalen-1-yl) methyleneamino)-2-methylquinazoline-4(3H)-one HNMAMQ Schiff's base by the condensation of 3-(2-aminophenyl) quinazolin-2-methyl-4(3H)-one and 2-hydroxy-1-naphthaldehyde. The Schiff's base HNMAMQ and its La(III) complex were characterized by elemental analyses, IR, NMR, mass spectra, and thermal studies. The newly synthesized Schiff's base HNMAMQ and its La(III) complex were evaluated for their antimicrobial activity against methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus aureus isolated from the Gulbarga region in India. The Schiff's base HNMAMQ and its La(III) complex showed good antimicrobial activity and thus represents a potential new drug of choice. PMID:24813293

    A new potentially hexadentate N2O4 Schiff base ligand, H2L derived from condensation reaction of an aromatic diamine and salicylaldehyde, and its metal complexes were characterized by elemental analyses, IR, UV-Vis, EI-MS, 1H and 13C NMR spectra, as well as conductance measurements. It has been originated that the Schiff base ligand with Cu(II), Ni(II), Co(II), Cd(II) and Zn(II) ions form mononuclear complexes on 1:1 (metal:ligand) stoichiometry. The conductivity data confirm the non-electrolytic nature of the complexes. Also the crystal structures of the complexes [ZnL] and [CoL] have also been determined by using X-ray crystallographic technique. The Zn(II) and Co(II) complexes show a tetrahedral configuration. Electronic absorption spectra of the Cu(II) and Ni(II) complexes suggest a square-planar geometry around the central metal ion. The synthesized compounds have antibacterial activity against the three Gram-positive bacteria: Bacillus cereus, Enterococcus faecalis and Listeria monocytogenes and also against the three Gram-negative bacteria: Salmonella paraB, Citrobacter freundii and Enterobacter aerogenes. The results showed that in some cases the antibacterial activity of complexes were more than nalidixic acid and amoxicillin as standards.

    A simple, highly sensitive and selective carbon nanocomposite electrode has been developed for the electrochemical trace determination of cadmium. This sensor was designed by incorporation of multi-walled carbon nanotubes (MWCNTs) and a new synthesized Schiff base into the carbon paste ionic liquid electrode (CPE(IL)) which provides remarkably improved sensitivity and selectivity for the electrochemical stripping assay of Cd(II). The detection limit of the method was found to be 0.08 ?g L(-1) (S/N=3) that is lower than the maximum contaminant level of Cd(II) allowed by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) in standard drinking waters. The proposed electrode exhibits good applicability for monitoring Cd(II) in various real samples. PMID:24411345

    The reversible redox isomerisms in first row transition metal complexes of the type ML2 were studied. The six ML2 complexes (M = Mn(III) (), Fe(II) (), Co(III) (), Ni(II) (), Cu(II) () and Zn(II) ()) were synthesized with a redox active Schiff base ligand [2-(3,5-di-tert-butyl-2-hydroxyphenylamino)-4-chlorophenol] (H3L) presenting different oxidation states from -2 to 0 (L(2-), L(-) and L(0)). EPR spectra and magnetic susceptibility measurements indicate the presence of complexes of the type [Mn(III)(L(2-))(L(-))] () with S = 1/2, [Fe(II)(L(-))2] () with S = 2, [Co(III)(L(2-))(L(-))] () with S = 1/2, [Ni(II)(L(-))2] () with S = 1, [Cu(II)(L(-))2] () with S = 1/2 and [Zn(II)(L(-))2] () with S = 0 at high temperatures. Temperature and solvents influence the electronic structures of the species and give several valence tautomers. At low temperatures these complexes present thermally induced metal-to-ligand (, , ) or ligand-to-ligand (in , ) electron transfer (partial or total), resulting in compounds of the type [Mn(IV)(L(2-))2] () with S = 1/2, [Fe(III)(L(-))(L(2-))] () with S = 1, [Ni(III)(L(2-))(L(-))] () with S = 0, [Cu(II)(L(2-))(L(0))] () with S = 1/2 and [Zn(II)(L(2-))(L(0))] () with S = 1. This electron transfer is in agreement with the general trend in the redox potentials of the first row transition metal ions from Mn(ii) to Zn(ii), and it allows us to prepare and stabilize reversibly switchable tautomeric forms in transition metal complexes with redox-active ligands.

    A new organotin/Schiff-base compound, C 24H 25Cl 4NO 3Sn·0.5C 6H 6 ( 1), was prepared by the reaction of ?- n-butoxycarbonylethyltin trichlorides ( 2) with 2-hydroxy-1-naphthalideneaniline-4-Cl ( 3) in benzene, and characterized by single-crystal X-ray diffraction, IR, 1H NMR, and elemental analysis. Yellow rectangular rods of the title compound crystallize as a benzene solvate of formula C 24H 25Cl 4NO 3Sn·0.5C 6H 6 ( 1) in the triclinic space group P-1. The unit cell has dimensions a=9.3624(2) Å, b=12.4947(3) Å, c=13.4821(3) Å, ?=70.7660(10)°, ?=87.1870(10)°, ?=75.1270(10)°, V=1438.13(6) Å3, and Z=2. The structure was solved by direct method primarily and difmap secondarily. It is found that the OH hydrogen in free 2-hydroxy-1-naphthalideneaniline tautomerizes to the imine nitrogen due to the coordination of the phenolic oxygen atom with the Sn atom after the complex formation, while an intramolecular hydrogen bond still exists between O and N ( N⋯O=2.585(4) Å). The Sn atom is coordinated with three chloride atoms, one carbon atom and two oxygen atoms, resulting in a distorted octahedra. The most notable feature of 1 lies in the ?-? interaction among the approximately planer 2-oxygen-1-naphthalideneaniline moieties and the rectangular molecular boxes formed through hydrogen bonds in which the benzene molecules reside.

In the solid state, the tetranuclear compounds 3 and 4 exhibit butterfly structures, whereas 5 adopts a rectangular arrangement. Electrospray ionization mass spectrometry data of the ionic compounds 1 and 2 support single-crystal X-ray analysis. The yttrium compounds 1 and 3 show fluorescence with 11.5% and 13% quantum yield, respectively, whereas the quantum yield of the dysprosium complex 4 is low. Magnetic studies on the dysprosium compounds 4 and 5 suggest the presence of weak antiferromagnetic interactions between neighboring metal centers. Compound 4 shows single-molecule-magnet behavior with two relaxation processes, one with the effective energy barrier U(eff) = 84 K and the preexponential factor ?(0) = 5.1 × 10(-9) s. PMID:25238652

    Some novel nano-sized structure zinc complexes of a new Schiff base ligand entitled as (3-nitro-benzylidene)-{2-[2-(3-nitro-phenyl)-imidazolidine-1-yl]-ethyl}-amine(L) with general formula of ZnLX2 wherein X = Cl-, Br-, I-, SCN- and N3- have been synthesized under ultrasonic conditions. The ligand and its complexes have been characterized by elemental analysis, molar conductance measurements, FT-IR, 1H and 13C NMR and UV-Visible spectroscopy. The resulting data from spectral investigation especially 1H and 13C NMR well confirmed formation of an imidazolidine ring in the ligand structure. Transmission electron microscopy (TEM) showed nano-size structures with average particle sizes of 21.80-78.10 nm for the zinc(II) Schiff base complexes. The free Schiff base and its Zn(II) complexes have been screened in vitro both for antibacterial activity against some gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria and also for antifungal activity. The metal complexes were found to be more active than the free Schiff base ligand. The results showed that ZnL(N3)2 is the most effective inhibitor against Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aereuguinosa, Staphylococcus aureus and Candida albicans while ZnLBr2 was found to be more effective against Bacillus subtillis than other compounds. Moreover, DNA cleavage potential of all compounds with plasmid DNA was investigated. The results showed that the ligand and ZnLCl2 complex cleave DNA more efficiently than others. In final, thermal analysis of ligand and its complexes revealed that they are decomposed via 2-3 thermal steps in the range of room temperature to 1000 °C. Furthermore some activation kinetic parameters such as A, E*, ?H*, ?S* and ?G* were calculated based on TG/DTA plots by use of coats - Redfern relation. Positive values of activation energy evaluated for the compounds confirmed the thermal stability of them. In addition to, the positive ?H*, and ?G* values suggested endothermic character for the thermal decomposition steps.

Six new copper(II) complexes, [Cu(L)(NO3)(H2O)2] (1), [Cu(L)2] (2), [Cu(L)(OAc)] (3), [Cu2 (L)2Cl2(H2O)4] (4), [Cu(L)(ClO4)(H2O)] (5) and [Cu2(L2S)(ClO4)(H2O)]ClO4·H2O (6) have been synthesized. The characterization of the newly formed compounds was done by IR, UV-Vis, EPR, FAB mass spectroscopy, elemental and thermal analysis, magnetic susceptibility measurements and molar electric conductivity. The crystal structures of Schiff base and the complex [Cu2(L2S)(ClO4)(H2O)]ClO4·H2O (6) have been determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction studies. Both copper atoms display a distorted octahedral coordination type [O4NS]. This coordination is ensured by three phenol oxygen, two of which being related to the µ-oxo-bridge, the nitrogen atoms of the azomethine group and the sulfur atoms that come from the polydentate ligand. The in vitro antimicrobial activity against Escherichia coli ATCC 25922, Salmonella enteritidis, Staphylococcus aureus ATCC 25923, Enterococcus and Candida albicans strains was studied and compared with that of free ligand. The complexes 1, 2, 5 showed a better antimicrobial activity than the Schiff base against the tested microorganisms. PMID:25849802

    In this study, new Fe(II) Schiff base amino acid chelates derived from the condensation of o-hydroxynaphthaldehyde with L-alanine, L-phenylalanine, L-aspartic acid, L-histidine and L-arginine were synthesized and characterized via elemental, thermogravimetric analysis, molar conductance, IR, electronic, mass spectra and magnetic moment measurements. The stoichiometry and the stability constants of the complexes were determined spectrophotometrically. Correlation of all spectroscopic data suggested that Schiff bases ligands exhibited tridentate with ONO sites coordinating to the metal ions via protonated phenolic-OH, azomethine-N and carboxylate-O with the general formulae [Fe(HL)2]·nH2O. But in case of L-histidine, the ligand acts as tetradentate via deprotonated phenolic-OH, azomethine-N, carboxylate-O and N-imidazole ring ([FeL(H2O)2]·2H2O), where HL = mono anion and L = dianion of the ligand. The structure of the prepared complexes is suggested to be octahedral. The prepared complexes were tested for their teratogenicity on chick embryos and found to be safe until a concentration of 100 ?g/egg with full embryos formation. Moreover, the interaction between CT-DNA and the investigated complexes were followed by spectrophotometric and viscosity measurements. It was found that, the prepared complexes bind to DNA via classical intercalative mode and showed a different DNA activity with the sequence: nhi > nari > nali > nasi > nphali. Furthermore, the free ligands and their complexes are screened for their in vitro antibacterial and antifungal activity against three types of bacteria, Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas aeruginosa and Bacillus cereus and three types of anti fungal cultures, Penicillium purpurogenium, Aspergillus flavus and Trichotheium rosium in order to assess their antimicrobial potential. The results show that the metal complexes are more reactive with respect to their corresponding Schiff base amino acid ligands.

    A lysine instead of the usual carboxyl group is in place of the internal proton donor to the retinal Schiff base in the light-driven proton pump of Exiguobacterium sibiricum (ESR). The involvement of this lysine in proton transfer is indicated by the finding that its substitution with alanine or other residues slows reprotonation of the Schiff base (decay of the M intermediate) by more than 2 orders of magnitude. In these mutants, the rate constant of the M decay linearly decreases with a decrease in proton concentration, as expected if reprotonation is limited by the uptake of a proton from the bulk. In wild type ESR, M decay is biphasic, and the rate constants are nearly pH-independent between pH 6 and 9. Proton uptake occurs after M formation but before M decay, which is especially evident in D2O and at high pH. Proton uptake is biphasic; the amplitude of the fast phase decreases with a pKa of 8.5 ± 0.3, which reflects the pKa of the donor during proton uptake. Similarly, the fraction of the faster component of M decay decreases and the slower one increases, with a pKa of 8.1 ± 0.2. The data therefore suggest that the reprotonation of the Schiff base in ESR is preceded by transient protonation of an initially unprotonated donor, which is probably the ?-amino group of Lys-96 or a water molecule in its vicinity, and it facilitates proton delivery from the bulk to the reaction center of the protein.

    An M intermediate of wild-type bacteriorhodopsin and an N intermediate of the V49A mutant were accumulated in photostationary states at pH 5.6 and 295 K, and their crystal structures determined to 1.52A and 1.62A resolution, respectively. They appear to be M(1) and N' in the sequence, M(1)<-->M(2)<-->M'(2)<-->N<-->N'-->O-->BR, where M(1), M(2), and M'(2) contain an unprotonated retinal Schiff base before and after a reorientation switch and after proton release to the extracellular surface, while N and N' contain a reprotonated Schiff base, before and after reprotonation of Asp96 from the cytoplasmic surface. In M(1), we detect a cluster of three hydrogen-bonded water molecules at Asp96, not present in the BR state. In M(2), whose structure we reported earlier, one of these water molecules intercalates between Asp96 and Thr46. In N', the cluster is transformed into a single-file hydrogen-bonded chain of four water molecules that connects Asp96 to the Schiff base. We find a network of three water molecules near residue 219 in the crystal structure of the non-illuminated F219L mutant, where the residue replacement creates a cavity. This suggests that the hydration of the cytoplasmic region we observe in N' might have occurred spontaneously, beginning at an existing water molecule as nucleus, in the cavities from residue rearrangements in the photocycle.

EB1 has a general formula C18H20N6O2S2 of mole mass = 416.520, and IUPAC name ((N,N?Z,N,N?E)-N,N?-(((ethane1,2diylbis(oxy))bis(2,1phenylene))bis(methanylylidene))bis(1hydrazinylmethanethioamide). L1 has a general formula C20H16N4O2S of mole mass = 376.10; and IUPAC name 1,2-bis(2-vinylphenoxy)ethane4,6-diaminopyrimidine-2-thiol). The structures of the compounds obtained were characterized based on elemental analysis, FT-IR and 1H NMR spectra, mass, and thermogravimetric analysis (TG, DTG). The activation thermodynamic parameters, such as, ?E*, ?H*, ?S* and ?G* were calculated from the TG curves using Coats-Redfern method. It is important to investigate their structures to know the active groups and weak bond responsible for their biological activities. The obtained thermal (TA) and mass (MS) practical results are confirmed by semi-empirical MO-calculation using PM3 procedure, on the neutral and positively charged forms of these novel Schiff bases. Therefore, comparison between MS and TA helps in selection of the proper pathway representing the decomposition of these compounds to give indication about their structures and consequently their biological activities. Their biological activities have been tested in vitro against Escherichia coli, Proteus vulgaris, Bacillissubtilies and Staphylococcus aurous bacteria in order to assess their antimicrobial potential.

    The 1:1 condensation of o-acetoacetylphenol and 1,2-diaminopropane under condition of high dilution gives the mono-condensed Schiff base, (E)-3-(1-aminopropan-2-ylimino)-1-(2-hydroxyphenyl)butan-1-one. The mono-condensed Schiff base has been used for further condensation with isatin to obtain the new asymmetrical dicompartmental Schiff base ligand, (E)-3-(2-((E)-4-(2-hydroxyphenyl)-4-oxobutan-2-ylideneamino) propylimino)indolin-2-one (H3L) with a N2O3 donor set. Reactions of the ligand with metal salts give a series of new binuclear complexes. The ligand and its metal complexes were characterized by elemental analyses, IR, 1H and 13C NMR, electronic, ESR and mass spectra, conductivity and magnetic susceptibility measurements as well as thermal analyses. The analytical and spectroscopic tools showed that the complexes can be formulated as: [(HL)(VO)2(SO4)(H2O)]·4H2O, [(HL)Fe2Cl4(H2O)3]·EtOH, [(HL)Fe2(ox)Cl2(H2O)3]·2H2O, [(L)M2(OAc)(H2O)m]·nH2O; M = Co, Ni or Cu, m = 4, 0 and n = 2, 3, [(HL)Cu2Cl]Cl·6H2O and [(L)(UO2)2(OAc)(H2O)3]·6H2O. The metal complexes exhibited octahedral geometrical arrangements except copper complexes that exhibited tetrahedral geometries and uranyl complex in which the metal ion is octa-coordinated. The Schiff base and its metal complexes were evaluated for antimicrobial activity against Gram positive bacteria (Staphylococcus aureus), Gram negative bacteria (Escherichia coli) and fungi (Candida albicans and Aspergillus flavus). The ligand and some of its complexes were found to be biologically active. The DNA-binding properties of the copper complexes (6 and 7) have been investigated by electronic absorption, fluorescence and viscosity measurements. The results obtained indicate that these complexes bind to DNA via an intercalation binding mode with an intrinsic binding constant, Kb of 1.34 × 104 and 2.5 × 104 M-1, respectively.

    A naringenin Schiff-base ligand (H 3L) and its copper(II) and zinc(II) complexes have been synthesized and characterized by elemental analyses, molar conductivities, 1H NMR, IR spectra, UV spectra and thermal analyses. The DNA-binding properties of the Cu(II) and Zn(II) complexes have been investigated by fluorescence spectroscopy, ultraviolet spectroscopy and by viscosity measurements. The results indicate that complexes and ligand may bind to DNA by intercalation modes, but the binding affinity of the complexes is much higher than that of the ligand.

    A condensation reaction of 2-amino-1,3,4-thiadiazole with 2-pyrrolecarboxaldehyde to form tridentate NNN donor Schiff base has been performed. The prepared Schiff base was further used for the formation of metal complexes having stoichiometry [M(L)2]Xn, where M=Cu(II) or Zn(II), L=N-(2-pyrrolylmethylene)-2-amino-1,3,4-thiadiazole, X=SO42?, NO3?, C2O42? or CH3CO2? and n=1 or 2. The new compounds described here have been characterized by their physical, spectral and analytical data, and have been screened against several bacterial strains such as Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, and Pseudomonas aeruginosa. The antibacterial potency of the Schiff base increased upon chelation/complexation, having the same metal ion (cation) but different anions opening up a novel approach in finding new ways to fight against antibiotic resistant strains.

    Metal-based drugs with extensive clinical applications hold great promise for the development of cancer chemotherapeutic agents. In the last few decades, Schiff bases and their complexes have become well known for their extensive biological potential. In the present study, we examined the antiproliferative effect of a copper (II) complex on HT-29 colon cancer cells. The Cu(BrHAP)2 Schiff base compound demonstrated a potent antiproliferative effect in HT-29 cells, with an IC50 value of 2.87??g/ml after 72?h of treatment. HT-29 cells treated with Cu (II) complexes underwent apoptosis death, as exhibited by a progressive elevation in the proportion of the G1 cell population. At a concentration of 6.25??g/ml, the Cu(BrHAP)2 compound caused significant elevation in ROS production following perturbation of mitochondrial membrane potential and cytochrome c release, as assessed by the measurement of fluorescence intensity in stained cells. Furthermore, the activation of caspases 3/7 and 9 was part of the Cu (II) complex-induced apoptosis, which confirmed the involvement of mitochondrial-mediated apoptosis. Meanwhile, there was no significant activation of caspase-8. Taken together, these results imply that the Cu(BrHAP)2 compound is a potential candidate for further in vivo and clinical colon cancer studies to develop novel chemotherapeutic agents derived from metal-based agents.

The complexes are found to have the formulae [PdL1-2]Cl2 and [ZnL1-2](AcO)2·H2O. The molar conductance data reveal that Pd(II) and Zn(II) chelates are ionic in nature and are of the type 2:1 electrolytes. The spectral data are consistent with a square planar and tetrahedral geometry around Pd(II) and Zn(II), respectively, in which the ligands act as tetradentate ligands. The thermal behavior of some chelates is studied and the activation thermodynamic parameters are calculated using Coats-Redfern method. The corrosion inhibition of stainless steel types 410 and 304 in 1 M HCl using the synthesized Schiff bases as inhibitors have been studied by weight loss method. The obtained data considered these ligands as efficient corrosion inhibitors. The ligands and their metal complexes exhibited considerable antibacterial activity against Staphylococcusaureus, and Escherichiacoli and antifungal activity against Candida albicans. PMID:24858346

    A series of new bimetallic complexes of nickel(II) and vanadium(IV) have been synthesized by the reaction of the new double bidentate Schiff base ligands with nickel acetate and vanadyl acetylacetonate in 1:1M ratio. In nickel and also vanadyl complexes the ligands were coordinated to the metals via the imine N and enolic O atoms. The complexes have been found to possess 1:1 metals to ligands stoichiometry and the molar conductance data revealed that the metal complexes were non-electrolytes. The nickel and vanadyl complexes exhibited distorted square planar and square pyramidal coordination geometries, respectively. The emission spectra of the ligands and their complexes were studied in methanol. Electrochemical properties of the ligands and their metal complexes were also investigated in DMSO solvent at 150mVs(-1) scan rate. The ligands and metal complexes showed both quasi-reversible and irreversible processes at this scan rate. The Schiff bases and their complexes have been characterized by FT-IR, (1)H NMR, UV/Vis spectroscopies, elemental analysis and conductometry. The crystal structure of the nickel complex has been determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction. PMID:25613693

All the new synthesized complexes were characterized by using of microanalysis, FT-IR, UV-Vis, magnetic measurements, ESR, and conductance measurements, respectively. The data revealed that all the Schiff bases (H2L1-4) coordinate in their deprotonated forms and behave as tetradentate NOON coordinated ligands. Moreover, their copper(II) complexes have square planar geometry with general formula [CuL1-4]. The binding of the complexes with calf thymus DNA (CT-DNA) was investigated by UV-Vis spectrophotometry, fluorescence quenching and viscosity measurements. The results indicated that the complexes bind to CT-DNA through an intercalative mode. From the biological activity view, the copper(II) complexes and their parent ligands were screened for their in vitro antibacterial activity against the bacterial species Staphylococcus aureus, Staphylococcus epidermidis, Escherichia coli and Pseudomonas aeruginosai by well diffusion method. The complexes showed an increased activity in comparison to some standard drugs.

    A new Schiff base ligand (HL) was synthesized by the condensation reaction between 2'-methyleacetoacetanilide and 2-amino-3-hydroxypyridine. Its Co(II), Ni(II), Cu(II) and Zn(II) complexes were prepared by the interaction of the ligand with metal(II) chloride. They were characterized by elemental analysis, IR, 1H NMR, EPR, UV-Vis, magnetic susceptibility measurements, conductivity measurements and FAB-mass spectra. The interaction of the complexes with calf thymus DNA (CT-DNA) has been investigated by UV absorption, viscosity and cyclic voltammetry methods, and the mode of CT-DNA binding to the complexes has been explored. Furthermore, the DNA cleavage activity by the complexes was performed. It was found to be oxidative hydroxyl radical cleavage in the presence of 3-mercaptopropionic acid (MPA). The Schiff base and its complexes have been screened for their antibacterial ( Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Bacillus subtilis and Pseudomonas aeruginosa) and antifungal ( Aspergillus niger, Rhizopus stolonifer, Rhizoctonia bataicola and Candida albicans) activities and the data reveal that the complexes have higher activity than the free ligand.

    Two new macrocyclic Schiff base ligands L 1 and L 2 from [1 + 1] and [2 + 2] condensation reaction, respectively, have been obtained in a one-pot synthesis starting from 1,4-bis(2-formylphenyl)piperazine and 2,2-dimethyl-propylendiamine. Unfortunately, because of the low solubility of two products, we were unable to separate them effectively. Macrocyclic Schiff base complexes [NiL 1](ClO 4) 2, [CuL 1](ClO 4) 2 and [ZnL 1](ClO 4) 2 were prepared from the reaction of a mixture of L 1 and L 2 in the presence of nickel(II), copper(II) and zinc(II) metal ions, respectively. In all cases, only [1 + 1] condensation products were obtained and no metal complexes were isolated with the L 2 macrocycle. All of complexes have been characterized by elemental analysis, IR spectra, FAB-MS, conductivity measurements and in the case of Zn(II) complex by 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy. Crystal structures of [NiL 1](ClO 4) 2 and [NiL 1'](ClO 4) 2 complexes have been also determined. The Ni(II) is coordinated to the ligand L 1 and L 1' by two nitrogen atoms of piperazine group and two nitrogen atoms of the imine groups, in a slightly distorted square-planar geometry.

    A new class of bidentate (N, O) Schiff base ligand (L) has been derived from the functional biopolymer (chitosan) and 1,2-diphenylethanedione in 1:1 M ratio. This ligand has been used to synthesise the new first row transition metal complexes of Cu(II), Co(II) and Ni(II). The structural properties of the ligand and the synthesized tetra-coordinated complexes have been investigated by elemental analysis, magnetic study, molar conductance measurement and spectroscopic methods viz. FT-IR, UV-Vis., 1H NMR, 13C NMR and XRD. The spectral evidences strongly suggested the square planar geometry to the complexes. The XRD studies proved that crystallinity of chitosan has been diminished after Schiff base formation and metal complexation of L. Thermal and surface properties of the complexes have been also discussed from the investigation of their TG-DTG curves and SEM images, respectively. In addition, the catalytic efficiency of these complexes has been studied in the cyclohexane oxidation reaction using H2O2 as oxidant at 70 °C.

    Schiff base is one of the easiest synthesizable chemosensor and exhibit strong coordination with metal ions; the property that has been vastly exploited for metal ions sensing. Simple Schiff base chemosensors (1a-d and 2a-d) were synthesized and demonstrated substitutional group dependent colorimetric sensing of metal ions. Chemosensor without (1a, 2a) and OCH3 substitution (1b, 2b) did not show any significant colour change for metal ions. However, a highly selective colorimetric change (colourless to pink) for Mn2+ ions (10-6 M) was observed with diethylamine substituted 1c, 2c. Hydroxyl substitution (1d, 2d) leads to selective colorimetric sensing (colourless to orange) of Fe3+ ions (10-6 M). PVA thin films of 2c/2d were fabricated and demonstrated selective colorimetric sensing of Mn2+ and Fe3+ ions. The practical applicability of the synthesized chemosensors were also demonstrated by performing selective colorimetric sensing of Mn2+ and Fe3+ ions in real samples such as tap, ground, pond and river water. Effect of substitution on the fluorescence selectivity of Zn2+ has also been investigated.

    Reactions of [RuCl 2(DMSO) 4] with some of the biologically active macrocyclic Schiff base ligands containing N 4 and N 2O 2 donor group yielded a number of stable complexes, effecting complete displacement of DMSO groups from the complex. The interaction of tetradentate ligand with [RuCl 2(DMSO) 4] gave neutral complexes of the type [RuCl 2(L)] [where L = tetradentate macrocyclic ligand]. These complexes were characterized by elemental, IR, 1H, 13C NMR, mass, electronic, thermal, molar conductance and magnetic susceptibility measurements. An octahedral geometry has been proposed for all complexes. All the macrocycles and macrocyclic Ru(II) complexes along with existing antibacterial drugs were screened for antibacterial activity against Gram +ve ( Bacillus subtilis, Staphylococcus aureus) and Gram -ve ( Escherichia coli, Klebsiella pneumonia) bacteria. All these compounds were found to be more active when compared to streptomycin and ampicillin. The representative macrocyclic Schiff bases and their complexes were also tested in vitro to evaluate their activity against fungi, namely, Aspergillus flavus and Fusarium species.

    The mixed ligand mononuclear complex [Mn(bipy)(HPMFP)(OAc)]ClO 4 was synthesized by reaction of Mn(OAc) 3·2H 2O with HPMFP and 2,2'-bipyridyl. The corresponding Schiff base complexes were prepared by condensation of [Mn(bipy)(HPMFP)(OAc)]ClO 4 with ethylenediamine, ethanolamine and glycine (where HPMFP = 1-phenyl-3methyl-4-formyl-2-pyrazolin-5one, bipy = 2,2'-bipyridyl). All the compounds have been characterized by elemental analysis, magnetic susceptibility, conductometry measurements and 1H and 13C NMR, FT-IR, mass spectrometry. Electronic spectral and magnetic susceptibility measurements indicate square pyramidal geometry around manganese(III) ion. The thermal stabilities, activation energy E*, entropy change ? S*, enthalpy change ? H* and heat capacity of thermal degradation for these complexes were determined by TGA and DSC. The in vitro antibacterial and antifungal activity of four coordination compounds and ligand HPMFP were investigated. In vitro activates of Bacillus subtillis (MTCC-619), Staphylococcus aureus (MTCC-96), Escherichia coli (MTCC-722) and Klebsiella pneumonia (MTCC-109) bacteria and the fungus Candida albicans (ATCC-90028) were determined.

    Reactions between the non-ionized form of the Schiff base, NN'-propane-1,3-diylbis (salicylideneimine) (H 2sal-1,3Pd) and hydrated zinc, cadmium and mercury metal ion salts give complexes of the type M(H 2sal-1,3Pd)X 2 and M(sal-1,3Pd) [M = Zn(II), Cd(II), Hg(II); X = Cl -, Br -, I -, NO 3-; M = Zn(II), X 2 = SO 42-]. Spectroscopic and other properties showed marked similarities with the structurally known Ca(H 2sal-1,3Pd)(NO 3) 2 compounds, i.e. the Schiff base is coordinated through the phenolic oxygen atoms and not the nitrogen atoms of the azomethine groups. Halide and sulphate are covalently bonded to the central metal ion, whereas the nitrate group showed ionic character in mercury nitrate compound and coordination in zinc and cadmium nitrato complexes. The i.r. spectra exhibited the dimeric nature of the complexes and therefore the coordination number suggested would be four in the halo and sulphato or six in nitrato complexes with possible tetrahedral or octahedral arrangements around these metal cations.

    A novel binuclear copper(II) complex (complex 1) with taurine Schiff base and imidazole has been synthesized and structurally characterized by single crystal X-ray diffraction, elemental analysis, ESI-MS spectrometry, UV-vis and IR spectroscopy. Single-crystal analysis revealed that 1 displays the sulfonate-bridged dinuclear copper(II) centers. Both copper atoms are five-coordinated and exhibit slightly distorted square pyramidal geometries. Each of copper atom is surrounded by three oxygen atoms and one nitrogen atom from different taurine Schiff base ligands, and one nitrogen atom from one imidazole ligand. The interaction between 1 and calf thymus DNA (CT-DNA) was investigated by UV-vis, fluorescence, circular dichroism (CD) spectra and agarose gel electrophoresis. The experimental results indicated that 1 could bind to CT-DNA via an intercalative mode and show efficient cleavage activity. In addition, 1 showed an antitumor effect on cell cycle and apoptosis. Flow cytometric analysis revealed that MGC-803 cells were arrested in the S phase after treatment with 1. Fluorescence microscopic observation indicated that 1 could induce apoptosis of MGC-803 cells.

The results showed that, the Schiff base ligand can bind two metal ions in the same time. It coordinates to the first metal ion as mono-negative bi-dentate through azomethine nitrogen and enolic carbonyl after deprotonation. At the same time, it binds to the second metal ion via carboxylate oxygen after deprotonation. The thermodynamic parameters E?, ?H?, ?G? and ?S? have been calculated by Coats-Redfern (CR) and Horowitz-Metzger (HM) methods. The optical band gaps of the isolated complexes have been calculated from absorption spectra and the results indicated semi-conducting nature of the investigated complexes. The interactions between the copper (II) complex and calf thymus DNA (CT-DNA) have been studied by UV spectra. The results confirm that the Cu(II) complex binds to CT-DNA.

These metal chelates have been characterized by elemental analysis, IR, 1H-NMR, 13C-NMR, Mass, UV-Vis, magnetic moments, and thermogravimetric (TG&DTA) analysis. Spectral data showed that the 1,10-phenanthroline act as neutral bidentate ligand coordinating to the metal ion through two nitrogen donor atoms and Schiff bases acts as monobasic bidentate coordinating through NO donor atoms. All Ni(II) complexes appear to have an octahedral geometry. The antimicrobial activity of mixed ligand complexes has been studied by screening against various microorganisms, it is observed that the activity enhances upon coordination. The DNA binding studies have been investigated by UV-Vis spectroscopy, and the experimental results indicate that these complexes bind to CT DNA with the intrinsic binding constant Kb = 2.5 ± 0.2 × 105?M?1. MTT is used to test the anticancer effect of the complexes with HL60 tumor cell. The inhibition ratio was accelerated by increasing the dosage, and it had significant positive correlation with the medication dosage. PMID:23082074

    The binuclear Schiff base, H 2L, ligand was synthesized by reaction of 4,6-diacetylresorcinol with diethylenetriamine in the molar ratio 1:2. The coordination behavior of the H 2L towards Cu(II), Ni(II), Co(II), Zn(II), Fe(III), Cr(III), VO(IV) and UO 2(VI) ions has been investigated. The elemental analyses, magnetic moments, thermal studies and IR, electronic, 1H NMR, ESR and mass spectra were used to characterize the isolated ligand and its metal complexes. The ligand acts as dibasic with two N 3O-tetradentate sites and can coordinate with two metal ions to form binuclear complexes. The bonding sites are the nitrogen atoms of the azomethine and amine groups and the oxygen atoms of the phenolic groups. The metal complexes exhibit either square planar, tetrahedral, square pyramid or octahedral structures. The Schiff base ligand and its metal complexes were tested against four pathogenic bacteria ( Staphylococcus aureus and Streptococcus pyogenes) as Gram-positive bacteria, and ( Pseudomonas fluorescens and Pseudomonas phaseolicola) as Gram-negative bacteria and two pathogenic fungi ( Fusarium oxysporum and Aspergillus fumigatus) to assess their antimicrobial properties. Most of the complexes exhibit mild antibacterial and antifungal activities against these organisms.

    A new anion receptor bearing phenolic hydroxy group based on 3,5-ditertbutylsalicylaldehyde-p-nitrophenylhydrazone (1) was designed and synthesized. Upon addition of AcO- and F-, the receptor exhibited visible color changes from deep yellow to purple. However, no obvious color changes were observed on addition of the other anions tested (H2PO4-, Cl-, Br-, I-). The binding properties of the receptor with anions such as AcO- and F- were investigated by UV-Vis and fluorescent titrations. The result indicated that the receptor 1 had a higher affinity to AcO- and F- and a 1:1 host-guest complex was formed through H-bond interactions between 1 and anions.

    Mixed ligand complexes of Co(II), Ni(II), Cu(II) and Zn(II) with various uninegative tridentate ligands derived from isatin monohydrazone with 2-hydroxynapthaldehyde/substituted salicylaldehyde and heterocyclic nitrogen base 8-hydroxyquinoline have been synthesized and characterized by elemental analysis, conductometric studies, magnetic susceptibility and spectroscopic techniques (IR, UV-VIS, NMR, mass and ESR). On the basis of these characterizations, it was revealed that Schiff base ligands existed as monobasic tridentate ONO bonded to metal ion through oxygen of carbonyl group, azomethine nitrogen and deprotonated hydroxyl oxygen and heterocyclic nitrogen base 8-hydroxyquinoline existed as monobasic bidentate ON bonded through oxygen of hydroxyl group and nitrogen of quinoline ring with octahedral or distorted octahedral geometry around metal ion. All the compounds have been tested in vitro against various pathogenic Gram positive bacteria, Gram negative bacteria and fungi using different concentrations (25, 50, 100, 200 ?g/mL) of ligands and their complexes. Comparative study of antimicrobial activity of ligands, and their mixed complexes indicated that complexes exhibit enhanced activity as compared to free ligands and copper(II) Cu(LIV)(Q)?H2O complex was found to be most potent antimicrobial agent.

    Metal(II) chelates of Schiff bases derived from the condensation of 4-morpholinoaniline with substituted salicylaldehyde have been prepared and characterized by 1H NMR, IR, electronic, EPR, and magnetic measurement studies. The complexes are of the type M(X-MPMP)2 [where M = Cu(II), Co(II)), Zn(II), or VO(IV); MPMP = 2-[(4 morpholinophenyl imino) methyl] 4-X-phenol, X = Cl, (L1H), X = Br (L2H)]. Single crystal X-ray crystallography studies confirm the structure of newly synthesized Schiff bases. The Schiff bases act as bidentate monobasic ligands, coordinating through deprotonated phenolic oxygen and azomethine nitrogen atoms. The free ligands and metal complexes are screened for their biopotency. Metal complexes exhibit better activity than ligands. Anticancer activity of ligands and their metal complexes are evaluated in human heptocarcinoma(HepG2) cells. The preliminary bioassay indicates that the Schiff base and its zinc complex exhibit inhibitory activity against the human gastric cancer cell lines.

    Zn(II) complexes have been synthesized by reacting zinc acetate with Schiff bases derived from 2-hydrazino-5-[substituted phenyl]-1,3,4-thiadiazole and 2-hydroxyacetophenone/benzaldehyde/indoline-2,3-dione. All these complexes are soluble in DMF and DMSO; low molar conductance values indicate that they are non electrolytes. Elemental analyses suggest that the complexes have 1:2 metal to ligands stoichiometry of the types [ZnL2(H2O)2](L = monoanionic Schiff bases derived from 2-hydrazino-5-[substituted phenyl]-1,3,4-thiadiazole and 2-hydroxyacetophenone/indoline-2,3-dione) [ZnL2?(OOCCH3)2(H2O)2](L? = neutral Schiff bases derived from 2-hydrazino-5-[substituted phenyl]-1,3,4-thiadiazole and benzaldehyde), and they were characterized by IR, 1H NMR, and 13C NMR. Particle sizes of synthesized compounds were measured with dynamic light scattering (DLS) analyser which indicates that particle diameter are of the range ca. 100-200 nm. All these Schiff bases and their complexes have also been screened for their antibacterial (Bacillus subtilis (B. subtilis), Escherichia coli (E. coli) and antifungal activities (Colletotrichum falcatum (C. falcatum), Aspergillus niger (A. niger), Fusarium oxysporium (F. oxysporium) Curvularia pallescence (C. pallescence). The antimicrobial activities have shown that upon complexation the activity increases.

The ligands and complexes were characterized by circular dichroism (CD), UV-vis, IR, (1)H (NOE diff) (ligand) and (13)C NMR (ligand) spectra. The X-ray crystal structures solved for Ni(II)(1R,2R)(-)chxn(3,5-(t)bba)(hacphen) exhibit distortion of the coordination sphere towards tetrahedral in the solid phase. The complex crystallized in the orthorhombic non-centrosymmetric P2(1)2(1)2(1) space group. Thin layers of copper(II) complexes were deposited on Si(111) by a spin coating technique and characterized by scanning electron microscopy (SEM/EDS), atomic force microscopy (AFM) and fluorescence spectroscopy. Layer deposition conditions were studied and optimal parameters were found (1500 rpm, time 30 s). For copper(ii) layers the most intensive fluorescence band from intraligand transition at 514 nm was observed. CD spectra of complexes in MeCN suggest the tetrahedral distortion from the square planar geometry of the central ion of the coordination sphere in solution. The (1)H NMR NOE diff. spectra of ligands were measured and the positions of the nearest hydrogen atoms in the cyclohexane and aromatic rings were discussed. PMID:23831645

    The phenalenyl radical is a polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) radical. Owing to its widely distributed spin structure, phenalenyl is relatively stable compared to other hydrocarbon radicals and has been studied from the viewpoint of its application to electroconductive and magnetic materials. In addition, a strong intermolecular spin-spin coupling nature is another feature of phenalenyl. This account summarizes my studies so far into PAH radicals containing the phenalenyl scaffold in terms of their amphoteric redox properties and singlet biradical character, which strongly rely on the characteristic electronic structure, that is, non-bonding character and sixfold symmetry of a singly occupied molecular orbital of the phenalenyl radical.

    The agronomic benefit of biochar has attracted widespread attention to biochar-based fertilizers. However, the inevitable presence of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in biochar is a matter of concern because of the health and ecological risks of these compounds. The strong adsorption of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons to biochar complicates their analysis and extraction from biochar-based fertilizers. In this study, we optimized and validated a method for determining the 16 priority polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons in biochar-based fertilizers. Results showed that accelerated solvent extraction exhibited high extraction efficiency. Based on a Box-Behnken design with a triplicate central point, accelerated solvent extraction was used under the following optimal operational conditions: extraction temperature of 78°C, extraction time of 17 min, and two static cycles. The optimized method was validated by assessing the linearity of analysis, limit of detection, limit of quantification, recovery, and application to real samples. The results showed that the 16 polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons exhibited good linearity, with a correlation coefficient of 0.996. The limits of detection varied between 0.001 (phenanthrene) and 0.021 mg/g (benzo[ghi]perylene), and the limits of quantification varied between 0.004 (phenanthrene) and 0.069 mg/g (benzo[ghi]perylene). The relative recoveries of the 16 polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons were 70.26-102.99%. PMID:25546393

    Mono- and bi-nuclear acyclic and macrocyclic complexes with hard-soft Schiff base, H2L, ligand derived from the reaction of 4,6-diacetylresorcinol and thiocabohydrazide, in the molar ratio 1:2 have been prepared. The H2L ligand reacts with Co(II), Ni(II), Cu(II), Zn(II), Mn(II) and UO2(VI) nitrates, VO(IV) sulfate and Ru(III) chloride to get acyclic binuclear complexes except for VO(IV) and Ru(III) which gave acyclic mono-nuclear complexes. Reaction of the acyclic mono-nuclear VO(IV) and Ru(III) complexes with 4,6-diacetylresorcinol afforded the corresponding macrocyclic mono-nuclear VO(IV) and Ru(IIII) complexes. Template reactions of the 4,6-diacetylresorcinol and thiocarbohydrazide with either VO(IV) or Ru(III) salts afforded the macrocyclic binuclear VO(IV) and Ru(III) complexes. The Schiff base, H2L, ligand acts as dibasic with two NSO-tridentate sites and can coordinate with two metal ions to form binuclear complexes after the deprotonation of the hydrogen atoms of the phenolic groups in all the complexes, except in the case of the acyclic mononuclear Ru(III) and VO(IV) complexes, where the Schiff base behaves as neutral tetradentate chelate with N2S2 donor atoms. The ligands and the metal complexes were characterized by elemental analysis, IR, UV-vis 1H-NMR, thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA) and ESR, as well as the measurements of conductivity and magnetic moments at room temperature. Electronic spectra and magnetic moments of the complexes indicate the geometries of the metal centers are either tetrahedral, square planar or octahedral. Kinetic and thermodynamic parameters were calculated using Coats-Redfern equation, for the different thermal decomposition steps of the complexes. The ligands and the metal complexes were screened for their antimicrobial activity against Staphylococcus aureus as Gram-positive bacteria, and Pseudomonas fluorescens as Gram-negative bacteria in addition to Fusarium oxysporum fungus. Most of the complexes exhibit mild antibacterial and antifungal activities against these organisms.

    Two neutral mononuclear Cu(II) complexes have been prepared in EtOH using Schiff bases derived from 4-toluoyl pyrazolone and thiosemicarbazide. Both the ligands have been characterized on the basis of elemental analysis, IR, 1H NMR, 13C NMR and mass spectral data. The molecular geometry of one of these ligands has been determined by single crystal X-ray study. It reveals that these ligands exist in amine-one tautomeric form in the solid state. Microanalytical data, Cu-estimation, molar conductivity, magnetic measurements, IR, UV-Visible, FAB-Mass, TG-DTA data and ESR spectral studies were used to confirm the structures of the complexes. Electronic absorption and IR spectra of the complexes suggest a square-planar geometry around the central metal ion. The interaction of complexes with pET30a plasmid DNA was investigated by spectroscopic measurements. Results suggest that the copper complexes bind to DNA via an intercalative mode and can quench the fluorescence intensity of EB bound to DNA. The interaction between the complexes and DNA has also been investigated by agarose gel electrophoresis, interestingly, we found that the copper(II) complexes can cleave circular plasmid DNA to nicked and linear forms.

Extension of conjugation and the presence of free carboxylic acid group of the ligand L1 increased the wavelength of the complexes from visible region to the near IR region (620-850nm). The Cu(II) and Co(II) complexes interacted with CT-DNA via intercalative mode with the respective Kb value of 3.2×10(4)M(-1) and 2.9×10(4)M(-1) and acted as proficient photocleavers of SC pUC19 DNA in UV-A light, forming (1)O2 as the reactive oxygen species with the quantum yield of 0.38 and 0.36, respectively. Furthermore, the Cu(II) and Co(II) complexes showed photocytotoxicity toward two selected tumor cell lines MCF-7 and A549 by 3-(4,5-Dimethylthiazol-2-yl)-2,5-diphenyltetrazoliumbromide (MTT) method, and the Cu(II) complex exhibits higher photocytotoxicity than Co(II) complex against each of the selected cell lines, this result is identical with their DNA binding ability order.

    The dinuclear (Fe(II), Gd(III)) complexes studied in this report derive from hexadentate Schiff base ligands abbreviated H(2)L(i)() (i = 1, 2, 3). H(2)L(1) = N,N'-bis(3-methoxysalicylidene)-1,3-diamino-2,2'-dimethyl-propane, H(2)L(2) = N,N'-bis(3-methoxysalicylidene)-1,2-diamino-2-methylpropane, and H(2)L(3) = N,N'-bis(3-methoxysalicylidene)-1,2-diaminoethane. The crystal and molecular structures of three complexes have been determined at 160 K. Depending on the solvent used in the preparation, L(1)Fe(CH(3)OH)Gd(NO(3))(3)(CH(3)OH)(2), 1, or L(1)Fe((CH(3))(2)CO)Gd(NO(3))(3), 1', is obtained from H(2)L(1). A similar complex, L(2)Fe((CH(3))(2)CO)Gd(NO(3))(3), 2, is obtained from H(2)L(2). Complex 1 crystallizes in the orthorhombic space group Pca2(1) (No. 29): a = 22.141(3) A, b = 9.4159(16) A, c = 15.2075(17) A, V = 3170.4(7) A(3), Z = 4. Complexes 1' and 2 crystallize in the monoclinic space group P2(1)/c (No. 14): 1', a = 9.6264(17) A, b = 19.662(3) A, c = 16.039(3) A, beta = 95.15(2) degrees, V = 3023.6(9) A(3), Z = 4; 2, a = 9.7821(13) A, b = 18.7725(17) A, c = 16.100(2) A, beta = 96.497(16) degrees, V = 2937.5(6) A(3), Z = 4. Complexes 1, 1', and 2 possess an Fe(O(phenoxo))(2-)Gd core. The mononuclear L(3)Fe complex could be prepared from H(2)L(3) but not the related dinuclear (Fe, Gd) species. Mössbauer spectroscopy evidences that the iron center is in the +2 oxidation state for the six complexes. The experimental magnetic susceptibility and magnetization data of complexes 1, 1', and 2 indicate the occurrence of weak Fe(II)-Gd(III) ferromagnetic interactions. Single ion zero-field splitting of the iron(II) must be taken into account for satisfactorily fitting the data by exact calculation of the energy levels associated to the spin Hamiltonian through diagonalization of the full matrix for axial symmetry (1, J = 0.50 cm(-1), D = 2.06 cm(-1); 1', J = 0.41 cm(-1), D = 3.22 cm(-1); 2, J = 0.08 cm(-1), D = 4.43 cm(-1)).

    In this work, a new magnetically recoverable nanocatalyst was developed by immobilization of thiosemicarbazide ligand on the surface of silica coated magnetite nanoparticles (SCMNPs) through Schiff base condensation and followed complexation with MoO2(acac)2. Characterization of the prepared nanocatalyst was performed with different physicochemical methods such as Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) and atomic absorption spectroscopies, X-ray diffraction (XRD), vibrating sample magnetometry (VSM), thermogravimetric analysis (TGA), field-emission scanning electron microscopy (FE-SEM), and transmission electron microscopy (TEM). The prepared catalyst catalyzed the epoxidation of olefins and allyl alcohols with tert-butyl hydroperoxide (TBHP) and cumene hydroperoxide (CHP) quantitatively with excellent selectivity toward the corresponding epoxides under mild reaction conditions.

    In this work, organic electroluminescent (EL) devices with double light-emitting layers (EMLs) having stepwise energy levels were designed to improve the EL performance of a red-light-emitting platinum(II) Schiff base complex. A series of devices with single or double EML(s) were fabricated and characterized. Compared with single-EML devices, double-EML devices showed improved EL efficiency and brightness, attributed to better balance in carriers. In addition, the stepwise distribution in energy levels of host materials is instrumental in broadening the recombination zone, thus delaying the roll-off of EL efficiency. The highest EL current efficiency and power efficiency of 17.36 cd/A and 14.73 lm/W, respectively, were achieved with the optimized double-EML devices. At high brightness of 1000 cd/m², EL efficiency as high as 8.89 cd/A was retained. PMID:23939052

Comparative analysis of the NMR and IR spectra of the complexes with those of the corresponding ligands has shown that the complexation of the di-Schiff bases leads to changes in the conformation of the ligands and the charge redistribution. The asymmetric structure and non-planar structure of the complexes have been suggested.

    One new complex of Cu(II), [(CuL)2Cu3(N3)6]n (1) has been synthesized by reacting the "ligand complex", [CuL] with copper acetate and sodium azide (NaN3) in methanol-water where the di-Schiff base ligand H2L = N,N'-bis(?-methylsalicylidene)-1,3-propanediamine. The X-ray single crystal structural analysis shows that complex 1 consists of an incomplete face-sharing double cube of four Cu(II) ions with the formula of [(CuL)2Cu2(N3)2]2+ which are connected by [Cu(N3)4]2- unit to form a novel 1D chain.

    A rhenium-oxo complex such as methyltrioxorhenium (MTO) has been homogeneously immobilized on a Schiff base modified graphene oxide (GrO) support via covalent bonding. The loading of MTO on GrO nanosheets was monitored by FTIR, TG-DTA, and elemental analyses. The developed heterogeneous catalyst is found to be efficient for the oxidation of various amines to the corresponding N-oxides using hydrogen peroxide as an oxidant in high to excellent yields. At the end of the reaction, the catalyst is readily recovered by filtration and reused for subsequent runs. After the third run, the catalyst showed a marginal decrease in catalytic activity owing to the leaching of the MTO complex from the support. PMID:24718600

    Reaction of 4-aminoacetophenone and 4-bromobenzaldehyde in ethanol resulted in the formation of the monodentate V-shaped Schiff base (E)-1-(4-((4-bromo-benzylidene)amino)phenyl)ethanone (L). Interaction of L with different di- and trivalent metal ions revealed disubstituted derivatives. The ligand and its complexes were characterized by elemental analysis, mass, IR and NMR spectrometry. Biological activities of the ligand and complexes against the Escherchia coli and Staphylococcus aureus bacterias, and the two fungus Aspergillus flavus and Candida albicans were screened. The cytotoxicity of the compounds were checked as antitumor agents on liver carcinoma cell line (HepG2). They exhibited in vitro broad range of antitumor activities towards the cell line; the [ZnL2(H2O)2](NO3)2 complex was stronger antitumor towards HepG2 cell line as well as two breast cancer cell lines (MCF7 and T47D) relative to cis-platin.

    We report the synthesis of four diorganotin(IV) compounds of Schiff base pyruvic acid hydrazone derivatives formulated as [R 2SnLY] 2, where L 1 is 2-SC 4H 3CON 2C(CH 3)CO 2 with Y = CH 3CH 2CH 2CH 2OH, R = n-Bu ( 1); L 2 is C 6H 5CON 2C(CH 3)CO 2 with Y = CH 3CH 2OH, R = p-F-Bz ( 2); L 3 is 2-HOC 6H 4CON 2C(CH 3)CO 2 with Y dbnd H 2O, R = p-CN -Bz ( 3); and L 4 is 4-NO 2-C 6H 4CON 2C(CH 3)CO 2 with Y dbnd CH 3CH 2OH, R = Bz ( 4). The structures of all compounds have been established by a combination of single-crystal X-ray diffraction analysis, 1H and 119Sn NMR spectroscopy, IR spectroscopy, and elemental analysis. Studies reveal that four ligands present the same coordination mode with tin center, which all present tridentate ONO donor Schiff bases and coordinate to the tin center in an enolic form. In compounds 1- 4, each tin atom is seven-coordinated and exhibits a distorted pentagonal bipyramid with a planar SnO 4N unit and two apical alkyl carbon atoms, thus forming a weakly-bridged dimeric molecule. Additionally, the distance of Sn⋯O bridge in each compound is obviously affected by the choice of different alkyl groups and coordination solvent molecules, which fluctuates in the range of 2.571(5)-2.839(4) Å. Furthermore, the supramolecular structure analysis show that there are two types of supramolecular infrastructures, 1D chain or 2D network, which are formed by intermolecular O-H···N or C-H⋯X (X = O, N or F) hydrogen bonds.

    Schiff base ligand, 1,4-bis[(2-hydroxybenzaldehyde)propyl]piperazine (BHPP), and its Cu(II), Ni(II) and Co(II) metal complexes were synthesized and characterized by elemental analysis, magnetic susceptibility, molar conductance and spectral (IR and UV-vis) studies. The ground state of BHPP ligand was investigated using the BUILDER module of MOE. Metal complexes are formed in the 1:1 (M:L) ratio as found from the elemental analysis and found to have the general formula [ML]·nH2O, where M = Co(II), Ni(II) and Cu(II), L = BHPP. In all the studied complexes, the (BHPP) ligand behaves as a hexadentate divalent anion with coordination involving the two azomethine nitrogen's, the two nitrogen atoms of piperazine ring and the two deprotonated phenolic OH-groups. The magnetic and spectral data indicates octahedral geometry of metal(II) complexes. The ligand and their metal chelates have been screened for their antimicrobial activities using the disc diffusion method against the selected bacteria and fungi. They were found to be more active against Gram-positive than Gram-negative bacteria. Protonation constants of (BHPP) ligand and stability constants of its Cu2+, Co2+ and Ni2+ complexes were determined by potentiometric titration method in 50% DMSO-water solution at ionic strength of 0.1 M sodium nitrate. It has been observed that the protonated Schiff base ligand (BHPP) have four protonation constants. The divalent metal ions Cu2+, Ni2+ and Co2+ form 1:1 complexes.

    Multidrug resistance (MDR) in cancer, a major obstacle to successful application of cancer chemotherapy, is often characterized by over-expression of multidrug resistance-related proteins such as MRP1, P-gp or elevated glutathione (GSH) level. Efflux of drugs by functional P-gp, MRP1 and elevated GSH level can confer resistance to apoptosis induced by a range of different stimuli. Therefore, it is necessary to develop new cell death inducers with relatively lower toxicity toward non-malignant cells that can overcome MDR by induction of apoptotic or non-apoptotic cell death pathways. Herein we report the synthesis and spectroscopic characterization of a GSH depleting, redox active Schiff's base, viz., potassium-N-(2-hydroxy-3-methoxy-benzaldehyde)-alaninate (PHMBA). Cytotoxic potential of PHMBA has been studied in doxorubicin-resistant and -sensitive T lymphoblastic leukemia cells and Ehrlich ascites carcinoma (EAC) cells. PHMBA kills both the cell types irrespective of their drug-resistance phenotype following apoptotic/necrotic pathways. Moreover, PHMBA-induced cell death is associated with oxidative stress mediated mitochondrial pathway as the H(2)O(2) inhibitor PEG-Catalase abrogated PHMBA-induced apoptosis/necrosis. PHMBA induces anti-tumor activity in both doxorubicin-sensitive and -resistant EAC-tumor-bearing Swiss albino mice. The non-toxicity of PHMBA was also confirmed through cytotoxicity studies on normal cell lines like PBMC, NIH3T3 and Chang Liver. To summarise, our data provide compelling rationale for future clinical use of this redox active Schiff's base in treatment of cancer patients irrespective of their drug-resistance status.

  1. Design of unique composites based on aromatic thermosetting copolyesters

    Parkar, Zeba

    Aromatic thermosetting copolyester (ATSP) has promise in high-temperature applications. It can be employed as a bulk polymer, as a coating and as a matrix for carbon fiber composites (ATSP/C composites). This work focuses on the applications of high performance ATSP/C composites. The morphology of the ATSP matrix in the presence of carbon fiber was studied. The effect of liquid crystalline character of starting oligomers used to prepare ATSP on the final crystal structure of the ATSP/C composite was evaluated. Matrices obtained by crosslinking of both liquid crystalline oligomers (ATSP2) and non-liquid crystalline oligomers (ATSP1) tend to crystallize in presence of carbon fibers. The crystallite size of ATSP2 is 4 times that of ATSP1. Composites made from ATSP2 yield tougher matrices compared to those made from ATSP1. Thus toughened matrices could be achieved without incorporating any additives by just changing the morphology of the final polymer. The flammability characteristics of ATSP were also studied. The limiting oxygen index (LOI) of bulk ATSP was found to be 40% whereas that of ATSP/C composites is estimated to be 85%. Thus, ATSP shows potential to be used as a flame resistant material, and also as an aerospace reentry shield. Mechanical properties of the ATSP/C composite were characterized. ATSP was observed to bond strongly with reinforcing carbon fibers. The tensile strength, modulus and shear modulus were comparable to those of conventionally used high temperature epoxy resins. ATSP shows a unique capability for healing of interlaminar cracks on application of heat and pressure, via the Interchain Transesterification Reaction (ITR). ITR can also be used for reduction in void volume and healing of microcracks. Thus, ATSP resin systems provide a unique intrinsic repair mechanism compared to any other thermosetting systems in use today. Preliminary studies on measurement of residual stresses for ATSP/C composites indicate that the stresses induced are much lower than that in epoxy/C composites. Thermal fatigue testing suggests that ATSP shows better resistance to microcracking compared to epoxy resins.

  2. Supramolecular aromaticity

    2014-05-01

    We report experimental and theoretical evidences for supramolecular aromaticity as a new concept to be widely used in researches about molecular crystals. CSD survey regarding frequently encountered resonance-assisted H-bonds (RAHBs) in formic acid, formamide, formimidamide, formic acid-formamide, and formamide-formimidamide dimers shows that supramolecular quasirings formed by RAHBs have remarkable electronic delocalization within themselves, which is reminiscent of aromaticity at supramolecular level. This study criticizes and reevaluates the validity of conventional judgment which states that ring systems formed by intermolecular H-bonds cannot be aromatic. Thus, the term aromaticity can be extended to supramolecular systems formed by RAHBs. Supramolecular aromaticity has a multi-fold nature involving both ?- and ?-delocalization, and ?-delocalization through RAHBs takes on a task of compensating ?-deficiency within quasirings. Atomic composition in donor-acceptor set of the dimers is descriptive for supramolecular aromaticity. We revised bond-valence parameters for RAHBs and they suggest that hypervalent character of H atoms is more pronounced than their hypovalent character in RAHBs. The ?-delocalized bonding within H-bonded quasirings necessitates hypervalent character of H atoms. Quantum chemical calculations based on adiabatic Hydrogen Atom Transfer (HAT) between the monomers reveal that topological parameters at ring critical points (RCPs) of the quasirings correlate well with Shannon's entropic aromaticity index. The presence of additional LP orbital on O atoms implying more diffused LP-orbitals in donor-acceptor set leads to the formation of resonance-disabling states reducing supramolecular aromaticity of a quasiring and energetic cost of the electron transfer between the monomers. There is a nonignorable electron transfer between the monomers even in the cases where H atoms are close to donor or acceptor atom. NBO analyses have revealed that formally vacant LP* orbitals on H-atoms in TS geometries mediate intermolecular electron transfer as a result of the hyperconjugative stereoelectronic interactions.

The geometry of [NiL(2)(bzlan)] determined by X-ray crystallography indicates that the complex has planar structure and has four coordinate in the solid state. The thermogravimmetry (TG) and differential thermoanalysis (DTA) of the synthesized complexes were carried out in the range of 20-700°C, leading to decomposition of ONO type in two stages and of ONS type in three stages. The ONO and ONS complexes were decomposed to NiO and NiS respectively. Thermal decomposition of the complexes is closely the depends upon nature of the Schiff base ligands and proceeds via first order kinetics. PMID:22525035

    An asymmetric bidentate Schiff-base ligand (HL: 2-((allylimino)methyl)phenol) was prepared from reaction of salicylaldehyde and Allylamine. Vanadium(IV), Cobalt(III), Copper(II) and Zinc(II) complexes, VOL2, CoL3, CuL2 and ZnL2 were synthesized from the reaction of VO(acac)2, CoCl2·6H2O, CuCl2·2H2O and Zn(NO3)2·6H2O with the bidentate Schiff base ligand (HL: 2-allyliminomethyl-phenol) in methanol at ambient temperature. The ligand and its metal complexes were characterized by elemental analysis (CHN), FT-IR spectroscopy. In addition, 1H and 13C NMR techniques were employed for characterization of the ligand (HL) and diamagnetic complex ZnL2. The molecular structures of all complexes were determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction technique. In the ZnL2 and CuL2 complexes, the metal ion is coordinated by two nitrogen and two oxygen atoms from two Schiff base ligands in an approximately square planar trans-[MN2O2] coordination geometry. In the Vanadium(IV) complex, VOL2, the vanadium center in this structure has a distorted tetragonal pyramidal N2O3 coordination sphere and for Cobalt(III) complex, CoL3, the CoIII ion is six coordinated by three bidentate Schiff base ligands in a distorted octahedral environment.

    Photocycle and flash-induced proton release and uptake were investigated for bacteriorhodopsin mutants in which Asp-85 was replaced by Ala, Asn, or Glu; Asp-212 was replaced by Asn or Glu; Asp-115 was replaced by Ala, Asn, or Glu; Asp-96 was replaced by Ala, Asn, or Glu; and Arg-82 was replaced by Ala or Gln in dimyristoylphosphatidylcholine/3-((3-cholamidopropyl)dimethylammonio)-1- propanesulfonate micelles at pH 7.3. In the Asp-85----Ala and Asp-85----Asn mutants, the absence of the charged carboxyl group leads to a blue chromophore at 600 and 595 nm, respectively, and lowers the pK of the Schiff base deprotonation to 8.2 and 7, respectively, suggesting a role for Asp-85 as counterion to the Schiff base. The early part of the photocycles of the Asp-85----Ala and Asp-85----Asn mutants is strongly perturbed; the formation of a weak M-like intermediate is slowed down about 100-fold over wild type. In both mutants, proton release is also slower but clearly precedes the rise of M. The amplitude of the early reversed photovoltage component in the Asp-85----Asn mutant is very large, and the net charge displacement is close to zero, indicating proton release and uptake on the cytoplasmic side of the membrane. The data suggest an obligatory role for Asp-85 in the efficient deprotonation of the Schiff base and in the proton release phase, probably as proton acceptor. In the Asp-212----Asn mutant, the rise of the absorbance change at 410 nm is slowed down to 220 microsecond, its amplitude is small, and the release of protons is delayed to 1.9 ms. The absorbance changes at 650 nm indicate perturbations in the early time range with a slow K intermediate. Thus Asp-212 also participates in the early events of charge translocation and deprotonation of the Schiff base.

    The thiocarbohydrazone Schiff-base ligand with a nitrogen and sulphur donor was synthesized through condensation of pyridine-2-carbaldehyde and thiocarbohydrazide. Schiff-base ligands have the ability to conjugate with metal salts. A series of metal complexes with a general formula [MCl 2(H 2L)]· nH 2O (M dbnd Ni, Co, Cu and Zn) were synthesized by forming complexes of the N 1,N 5-bis[pyridine-2-methylene]-thiocarbohydrazone (H 2L) Schiff-base ligand. These metal complexes and ligand were characterized by using ultraviolet-visible (UV-Vis), Fourier Transform Infrared (FT-IR), 1H and 13C NMR spectroscopy and mass spectroscopy, physicochemical characterization, CHNS and conductivity. The biological activity of the synthesized ligand was investigated by using Escherichia coli DNA as target. The DNA interaction of the synthesized ligand and complexes on E. coli plasmid DNA was investigated in the aqueous medium by UV-Vis spectroscopy and the binding constant ( Kb) was calculated. The DNA binding studies showed that the metal complexes had an improved interaction due to trans-geometrical isomers of the complexes than ligand isomers in cis-positions.

    A series of Co(II), Ni(II), Cu(II), Cd(II), Zn(II) and Hg(II) complexes have been synthesized with newly synthesized Schiff base derived from naphthofuran-2-carbohydrazide and cinnamaldehyde. The elemental analyses of the complexes are confined to the stoichiometry of the type MLCl2 [M = Co(II) and Cu(II)], ML2Cl2 [M = Ni(II), Cd(II), Zn(II) and Hg(II)] respectively, where L is Schiff base ligand. Structures have been proposed from elemental analyses, IR, electronic, mass, 1H NMR, ESR spectral data, magnetic, and thermal studies. The measured low molar conductance values in DMF indicate that the complexes are non-electrolytes. Spectroscopic studies suggest coordination occurs through azomethine nitrogen and carbonyl oxygen of the ligand with the metal ions. The Schiff base and its complexes have been screened for their antibacterial (Escherichia coli, Staphylococcus aureus, Bacillus subtilis and Salmonella typhi) and antifungal (Aspergillus niger, Aspergillus flavus, Cladosporium and Candida albicans) activities by minimum inhibitory concentration (MIC) method. The DNA cleavage studies by agarose gel electrophoresis method was studied for all the complexes.

    The bifunctional carbonyl compound; 4,6-diacetylresorcinol (DAR) serves as precursor for the formation of different Schiff base ligands, which are either di- or tetra-basic with two symmetrical sets of either O 2N or N 2O tridentate chelating sites. The condensation of 4,6-diacetylresorcinol with 3-amino-1-propanol (3-AP) or 1,3-diaminopropane (DAP), yields the corresponding hexadentate Schiff base ligands, abbreviated as H 4L a and H 2L b, respectively. The structures of these ligands were elucidated by elemental analyses, IR, mass, 1H NMR and electronic spectra. Reaction of the Schiff base ligands with copper(II), nickel(II), cobalt(II), zinc(II), cadmium(II), iron(III), chromium(III), vanadyl(IV) and uranyl(VI) ions in 1:2 molar ratio afforded the corresponding transition metal complexes. A variety of binuclear complexes for the metal complexes were obtained with the ligands in its di- or tetra-deprotonated forms. The structures of the newly prepared complexes were identified by elemental analyses, infrared, electronic, mass, 1H NMR and ESR spectra as well as magnetic susceptibility measurements and thermal gravimetric analysis (TGA). The bonding sites are the azomethine and amino nitrogen atoms, and phenolic and alcoholic oxygen atoms. The metal complexes exhibit different geometrical arrangements such as square planar, tetrahedral, square pyramid and octahedral arrangement.

    The Nickel (II) Schiff base complex of NiL2, (L = 2-{(E)-[2-chloroethyl) imino]methylphenolate) have been synthesized and characterized by elemental (CHN) analysis, UV-vis and FT-IR spectroscopy. The molecular structure of [NiL2] was determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction technique. The Schiff base ligand HL acts as a chelating ligand and coordinates via one nitrogen atom and one oxygen atom to the metal center. The nickel (II) center is coordinated by two nitrogen and two oxygen atoms from two Schiff base ligands in an approximately square planar trans-[MN2O2] coordination geometry. Thermogravimetric analysis of NiL2 showed that it decomposed in three stages. In addition, complex NiL2 thermally decomposed in air at 660 °C and the XRD pattern of the obtained solid showed the formation of NiO nanoparticles with an average size of 43 nm. In addition, the conformational analysis and molecular structures of NiL2 were investigated by means of density functional theory (DFT) calculations at B3LYP/6-311G* level and the calculated geometrical parameters were compared with the experimental results.

    This review summarises recent advances in quantum chemical calculations of base-stacking forces in nucleic acids. We explain in detail the very complex relationship between the gas-phase basestacking energies, as revealed by quantum chemical (QM) calculations, and the highly variable roles of these interactions in nucleic acids. This issue is rarely discussed in quantum chemical and physical chemistry literature. We further extensively discuss methods that are available for basestacking studies, complexity of comparison of stacking calculations with gas phase experiments, balance of forces in stacked complexes of nucleic acid bases, and the relation between QM and force field descriptions. We also review all recent calculations on base-stacking systems, including details analysis of the B-DNA stacking. Specific attention is paid to the highest accuracy QM calculations, to the decomposition of the interactions, and development of dispersion-balanced DFT methods. Future prospects of computational studies of base stacking are discussed.

    Effective vaccination against heterologous influenza virus infection remains elusive. Immunization with plasmid DNA (pDNA) expressing conserved genes from influenza virus is a promising approach to achieve cross-variant protection. However, despite having been described for more than a decade, pDNA vaccination still requires further optimization to be applied clinically as a standard vaccination approach. We have recently described a simple and efficient approach to enhance pDNA immunization, based on the use of tucaresol, a Schiff base-forming drug. In this report we have tested the ability of this drug to increase the protection conferred by pDNA vaccination against influenza virus infection. Our results demonstrate that a significant protection was achieved in two strains of mice by using the combination of pDNA and tucaresol. This protection was associated with an elevated humoral and cellular response and a switch in the type of the T helper cell (Th) immune response from type 2 to type 1. This vaccine combination represents a promising strategy for designing a clinical study for the protection from influenza and similar infections. PMID:15452252

    The metal complexes of Co(II), Ni(II) and Cu(II) have been synthesized from 6-formyl-7,8-dihydroxy-4-methylcoumarin with o-toluidine/3-aminobenzotrifluoride. The synthesized Schiff bases and their metal complexes were structurally characterized based on IR, (1)H NMR, (13)C NMR, UV-visible, ESR, magnetic, thermal, fluorescence, mass and ESI-MS studies. The molar conductance values indicate that complexes are non-electrolytic in nature. Elemental analysis reveals ML2·2H2O [M = Co(II), Ni(II) and Cu(II)] stoichiometry, where 'L' stands for a singly deprotonated ligand. The presence of co-ordinated water molecules were confirmed by thermal studies. The spectroscopic studies suggest the octahedral geometry. Redox behavior of the complexes were confirmed by cyclic voltammetry. All the synthesized compounds were screened for their antibacterial (Escherichia coli, Pseudomonas auregenosa, klebsiella, Proteus, Staphylococcus aureus and salmonella) antifungal (Candida, Aspergillus niger and Rhizopus), anthelmintic (Pheretima posthuma) and DNA cleavage (Calf Thymus DNA) activity.

    The synthesis and characterization of dicobalt(III) complex [Co2L2(OMe)2] of the tetradentate Schiff base ligand N,N?-bis(2-hydroxybenzylidene)-2,2-dimethyl-1,3-propanediamine (H2L) is reported. The crystal structure of the complex has been determined that exhibited the pseudo-octahedral geometry around both cobalt(III) ions. In the complexation process, H2L acts as two negatively charged tetradentate ligand, L2-, and methoxy group plays as bridging ligand. The geometry structure of the complex is optimized by density functional theory (DFT) using B3LYP/6-311G(d,p). The calculated geometric parameters are in good agreement with the corresponding experimental data. Second-Order Nonlinear Optical (NLO) property of the complex is evaluated by DFT/B3LYP/6-311G(d,p) on the base of the optimized structure that shows the enhancement relative to the calculated value of H2L. The calculated NLO value of the complex is much greater than the corresponding value of urea.

    Within this period, we have completed our investigations on the thermodynamic characteristics and base sequence dependence of duplex formation of benzo(a)pyrene diol epoxide (BPDE) DNA adducts. Different 11-mer oligonucleotides containing covalently bound BPDE moieties at the exocyclic amino group of a single guanine base were utilized in these studies. Last year, in the three-year progress report, some preliminary data were discussed. A final account is provided here. New techniques were developed for assessing the preferred orientations of the enantiomers of (+)-BPDE and ({minus})-BPDE relative to the 5in {r arrow} 3in polarity of DNA strands; these investigations were prompted by predictions derived from our computer modeling studies. Significant progress was made towards synthesizing BPDE-adenine adducts in base sequence-specific oligonucleotides. We failed, on the other hand, to synthesize nitrosopyrene-oligonucleotide adducts because of intrinsic low reactivities of the nitrenium derivative ions with oligonucleotides. Nature was against us in this effort. Therefore, this particular goal to be abandoned. 14 refs., 8 figs., 4 tabs.

    A synthesized Schiff base N,N'-bis(4-hydroxybenzaldehyde)-2,2-dimethylpropandiimine (p-HBDP) was studied as green inhibitor for the corrosion of low carbon steel in 1 M HCl solution using electrochemical, surface and quantum chemical methods. Results showed that the inhibition occurs through the adsorption of the inhibitor molecules on the metal surface. The inhibition efficiency was found to increase with increasing inhibitor concentration and de-creased with increasing temper-ature, which is due to the fact that the rate of corrosion of steel is higher than the rate of adsorption. Thermodynamic parameters for adsorp-tion and activation processes were determined. Polarization data indicated that this compound act as mixed-type inhibitors and the adsorption isotherm basically obeys the Langmuir adsorption isotherm. The calculations of reactivity indices of p-HBDP such as softness and natural charge distributions together with local reactivity by means of Fukui indices were used to explain the electron transfer mechanism between the p-HBDP molecules and the steel surface.

    Tin(IV) complexes 2a--q derived from pyridine Schiff bases were prepared and characterized. Four complexes of this series were evaluated in vitro against different carcinogenic cell lines; besides their anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties were also tested. Combination of mass spectrometry, multinuclear NMR and X-ray diffraction techniques evidenced the formation of heptacoordinated monomeric species. The X-ray diffraction analysis of 2a, 2b, 2i, 2j and 2n led to establish the heptacoordination around the tin atom in solid state and also revealed that the ligand occupies the equatorial positions of the distorted pentagonal bipyramidal geometry and the two alkyl or aryl groups the axial positions. The in-vitro study for complexes 2a--d against six tumor cell lines showed varied antiproliferative activity, the IC50 for all tested complexes was lower than that of the cis-platin. Compounds 2a--d also exhibited anti-inflammatory activity where complex 2c resulted to be more active (IC50=0.11 microM) than the indomethacin IC50=0.27 microM which was used as reference. The antioxidant activity in rat brain homogenate on inhibition of thiobarbituric acid reactive substances (TBARS) indicated that 2c (IC50=1.77 microM) is more active than the quercetine (4.11 microM) and alpha-tocopherol (IC50=569.09 microM).

The single crystal X-ray study had shown that ligands L1 and L2 crystallize in a monoclinic crystal system with P21/c space group. The mononuclear copper(II) complexes show one quasireversible cyclic voltammetric response near cathodic region (-0.77 to -0.85 V) in DMF assignable to the Cu(II)/Cu(I) couple. Binding interaction of the complexes with calf thymus DNA (CT DNA) investigated by absorption studies and fluorescence spectral studies show good binding affinity to CT DNA, which imply both the copper(II) complexes can strongly interact with DNA efficiently. The copper(II) complexes showed efficient oxidative cleavage of plasmid pBR322 DNA in the presence of 3-mercaptopropionic acid as reducing agent through a mechanistic pathway involving formation of singlet oxygen as the reactive species. The Schiff bases and their Cu(II) complexes have been screened for antibacterial activities which indicates that the complexes exhibited higher antimicrobial activity than the free ligands.

    This study is planned to report the advancement of green microwave approach in the fabrication of a new series of biologically potent (N^X, where X = O/S) donor Schiff bases and their cadmium(II) and tin(II) complexes. The ligands and their metal complexes have been characterized in terms of elemental analysis, molar ionic conductance, magnetic moment and spectral (IR, UV-Vis, NMR (1H, 119Sn), FAB-mass, thermal and XRD) data. The data revealed that the ligands coordinated to the metal center via nitrogen and oxygen/sulfur atoms and form an octahedral arrangement of the ligands around central metal atom. All compounds were evaluated for their in vitro antimicrobial activities against two pathogenic bacteria Bacillus subtilis and Escherichia coli and two fungi Aspergillus niger and Aspergillus flavus by standard disc diffusion method. The discs were stored in an incubator at 37 °C. The compounds were dissolved in DMF at 500 and 1000 ppm concentrations for screening biocidal activity. The compounds were dissolved in DMF to get the 100 and 200 ppm concentration of test solutions for screening fungicidal activity. The inhibition zone around each disc was measured (in mm) after 24 h and 96 h for biocidal and fungicidal activities respectively.

The spectral data revealed that the ligand acts as neutral bidentate, coordinating to the metal ion through the carbonyl oxygen and azomethine nitrogen. Molar conductance values adequately support the electrolytic nature of the complexes. On the basis of the above observations the complexes have been formulated as [M(ISAP)2]X2, where M = Mn(II), Co(II), Ni(II), Cu(II) and Zn(II); X = Cl, OAc; ISAP = 2-[N-indole-2-one]aminopyrimidine. The ligand and copper(II) complex were subjected to X-ray diffraction studies. The DNA cleavage study was monitored by gel electrophoresis method. The superoxide dismutase (SOD) mimetic activities of the ligand and the metal complexes were checked using NBT assay. The in vitro antibacterial activity of the synthesized compounds has been tested against gram negative and gram positive bacteria.

    Highly fluorescent surface modified polyacrylonitrile nanoparticles (PAN NPs) of 50 nm diameter were fabricated for selective Cu(2+) sensing. After surface modification, the PAN NPs were converted to amidine/Schiff base dual-modified PAN nanoparticles (tPAN NPs) with a Cu(2+) sensing property and high QY (0.19). The selectivity of tPAN NPs for Cu(2+) is much higher than that of other metal ions due to the fact that amidine group on the surface of tPAN NPs has a higher binding affinity with Cu(2+). The effect of other metal ions on the fluorescence intensity of the tPAN NPs was also studied, and other metal ions showed a low interference response in the detection of Cu(2+). Furthermore, as a metal ion chelator, ethylenediaminetetraacetate can competitively interact with Cu(2+) to recover the quenched fluorescence of tPAN NPs. The tPAN NPs are easily introduced into cells and exhibit low toxicity, enabling their use as a fluorescence sensor for Cu(2+) in living cells. The tPAN NPs provide a new direction for the development of copper ion sensors in living cells. PMID:25197957

    A simple Schiff base compound 2-((cyclohexylmethylimino)-methyl)-naphthalen-1-ol (2CMIMN1O) has been synthesized and characterized by (1)H NMR, (13)C NMR and FT-IR spectroscopic techniques. A significantly low emission yield of the compound has been rationalized in anticipation with photo-induced electron transfer (PET) from the imine receptor moiety to the naphthalene fluorophore unit. Consequently, an evaluation of the transition metal ion-induced modification of the fluorophore-receptor communication reveals the promising prospect of the title compound to function as a chemosensor for Cu(2+) and Zn(2+) ions selectively, through remarkable fluorescence enhancement as well as visual changes. While perturbation of the PET process has been argued to be the plausible mechanism behind the fluorescence enhancement, the selectivity for these two metal ions has been interpreted on the grounds of an appreciably strong binding interaction. Particularly notable aspects regarding the chemosensory activity of the compound is its ability to detect the aforesaid transition metal ions down to the level of micromolar concentration (detection limit being 2.74 and 2.27ppm respectively), along with a simple and efficient synthetic procedure.

Square planar, tetrahedral and octahedral geometries have been assigned to the prepared complexes. Dimeric complexes are obtained with 2:2 molar ratio except chromium(III) complex is monomeric which is obtained with 1:1 molar ratios. The IR spectra of the prepared complexes were suggested that the Schiff base ligand(HL) behaves as a bi-dentate ligand through the azomethine nitrogen atom and phenolic oxygen atom. The crystal field splitting, Racah repulsion and nepheloauxetic parameters and determined from the electronic spectra of the complexes. Thermal studies suggest a mechanism for degradation of HL and its metal complexes as function of temperature supporting the chelation modes. Also, the activation thermodynamic parameters, such as ?E*, ?H*, ?S* and ?G* for the different thermal decomposition steps of HL and its metal complexes were calculated. The pathogenic activities of the synthesized compounds were tested in vitro against the sensitive organisms Staphylococcus aureus (RCMB010027), Staphylococcus epidermidis (RCMB010024) as Gram positive bacteria, Klebsiella pneumonia (RCMB 010093), Shigella flexneri (RCMB 0100542), as Gram negative bacteria and Aspergillus fumigates (RCMB 02564), Aspergillus clavatus (RCMB 02593) and Candida albicans (RCMB05035) as fungus strain, and the results are discussed.

    Schiff base functionalized SBA-15 mesoporous materials were synthesized by post-grafting of salicylaldehyde onto silylated and non-silylated amino-modified SBA-15 and followed by the introduction of Cu(II) ions via a ligand exchange reaction. Both hybrid materials prepared were characterized by XRD, FT-IR, UV-vis spectroscopy, N 2 adsorption/desorption, TG/DTA and ICP-AES techniques and comparatively examined as catalysts in epoxidation of styrene with 30 wt.% aqueous hydrogen peroxide as oxidant. It was found that the silylated material was more active and selective to styrene oxide than the non-silylated one in CH 3CN. The considerably improved activity (86.1%) and styrene oxide selectivity (95.2%) were achieved after 30 min when adding sodium hydroxide to maintain a pH of 7.5-8.0 in reaction medium. Moreover, the silylated catalyst showed good recoverability and relatively high stability against leaching of active copper species. These superior effects were attributed to the high hydrophobic character of the solid surface produced by the silanol neutralization.

    Complexes of M(CO) 6 (M = Cr and Mo) with novel Schiff base N,N'-bis(salicylidene)4,5-dichloro-1,2-phenylenediamine (H 2L) were prepared in benzene in two different conditions: (i) under reduced pressure resulting the dicarbonyl precursors [Cr(CO) 2(H 2L)] and [Mo(CO) 2(L)] and (ii) in air resulting the oxo complex [Cr(O)(L)] and the dioxo complex [Mo(O) 2(L)]. The complexes were characterized by elemental analysis, IR, 1H NMR, mass spectrometry, and magnetic measurement. Thermal behaviors of the complexes were also studied by using thermogravimetric analysis (TGA). The catalytic activity of the novel complexes in the epoxidation of cyclooctene, cyclohexene, 1-octene and 1-hexene with tert-butyl-hydroperoxide (TBHP) in methylene chloride was investigated. The antimicrobial activities of the ligand and their complexes have been screened against various strains of bacteria and fungi and the results have been compared with some known antibiotics.

    Corrosion inhibition mechanism of two mercapto-quinoline Schiff bases, eg., 3-((phenylimino)methyl)quinoline-2-thiol (PMQ) and 3-((5-methylthiazol-2-ylimino)methyl) quinoline-2-thiol (MMQT) on mild steel surface is investigated by quantum chemical calculation and molecular dynamics simulation. Quantum chemical parameters such as EHOMO, ELUMO, energy gap (?E), dipolemoment (?), electronegativity (?), global hardness (?) and fraction of electron transfers from the inhibitor molecule to the metallic atom surface (?N) have been studied to investigate their relative corrosion inhibition performance. Parameters like local reactive sites of the present molecule have been analyzed through Fukui indices. Moreover, adsorption behavior of the inhibitor molecules on Fe (1 1 0) surface have been analyzed using molecular dynamics simulation. The binding strength of the concerned inhibitor molecules on mild steel surface follows the order MMQT>PMQ, which is in good agreement with the experimentally determined inhibition efficiencies. In view of the above, our approach will be helpful for quick prediction of a potential inhibitor from a lot of similar inhibitors and subsequently in their rational designed synthesis for corrosion inhibition application following a wet chemical synthetic route.

    The interaction of taurine-salicylaldehyde Schiff base copper(II) (Cu(TSSB) 22+) complex with DNA was explored by using UV-vis, fluorescence spectrophotometry, and voltammetry. In pH 7.4 Tris-HCl buffer solution, the binding constant of the Cu(TSSB) 22+ complex interaction with DNA was 3.49 × 10 4 L mol -1. Moreover, due to the fluorescence enhancing of Cu(TSSB) 22+ complex in the presence of DNA, a method for determination of DNA with Cu(TSSB) 22+ complex as a fluorescence probe was developed. The fluorescence spectra indicated that the maximum excitation and emission wavelength were 389 nm and 512 nm, respectively. Under optimal conditions, the calibration graphs are linear over the range of 0.03-9.03 ?g mL -1 for calf thymus DNA (CT-DNA), 0.10-36 ?g mL -1 for yeast DNA and 0.01-10.01 ?g mL -1 for salmon DNA (SM-DNA), respectively. The corresponding detection limits are 7 ng mL -1 for CT-DNA, 3 ng mL -1 for yeast DNA and 3 ng mL -1 for SM-DNA. Using this method, DNA in synthetic samples was determined with satisfactory results.

    2012-01-01

    Background Adverse antimicrobial activities of thiosemicarbazone (TSC) and Schiff base derivatives have widely been studied by using different kinds of microbes, in addition different methods were used to assay the antioxidant activities using DPPH, peroxids, or ntrosyl methods. However, there are no studies describing the synthesis of TSC derived from creatinine. Results In this study, 2-(2-imino-1-methylimidazolidin-4-ylidene)hydrazinecarbothioamide (IMHC) was synthesized by the reaction of creatinine with thiosemicarbazide. The novel molecule was characterized by FT-IR, UV-VIS, and NMR spectra in addition of the elemental analysis. The free radical scavenging ability of the IMHC was determined by it interaction with the stable-free radical 2,2"-diphenyl-1-picrylhydrazyl (or nitric oxide or hydrogen peroxide) and showed encouraging antioxidant activities. Density functional theory calculations of the IMHC performed using molecular structures with optimized geometries. Molecular orbital calculations provide a detailed description of the orbitals, including spatial characteristics, nodal patterns, and the contributions of individual atoms. Highest occupied molecular orbital-lowest unoccupied molecular orbital energies and structures are shown. Conclusions IMHC shows considerable antibacterial and antifungal activities. The free radical scavenging activity of synthesized compound was screened for in vitro antioxidant activity. PMID:22373542

    The oxidation of the recently synthesized Schiff base 3,6-bis((2-aminoethyl-5-Br-salicyliden)thio)pyridazine (PABST) with hydrogen peroxide was investigated using spectrophotometric studies. The reaction rate order and observed rate constant of the oxidation reaction was obtained in the mixture of N,N-dimethylformamide (DMF):water (30:70, v/v) at pH 10 using multivariate cure resolution alternative least squares (MCR-ALS) method and rank annihilation factor analysis (RAFA). The effective parameters on the oxidation rate constant such as percents of DMF, the effect of transition metals like Cu(2+), Zn(2+), Mn(2+) and Hg(2+) and the presence of surfactants were investigated. The keto-enol equilibria in DMF:water (30:70, v/v) solution at pH 7.6 was also investigated in the presence of surfactants. At concentrations above critical micelle concentration (cmc) of cationic surfactant cetyltrimethylammonium bromide (CTAB), the keto form was the predominant species, while at concentrations above cmc of anionic surfactant sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS), the enol form was the predominant species. The kinetic reaction order and the rate constant of tautomerization in micellar medium were obtained using MCR-ALS and RAFA. The results obtained by both the methods were in a good agreement with each other. Also the effect of different volume percents of DMF on the rate constant of tautomerization was investigated. The neutral surfactant (Triton X-100) had no effect on tautomerization equilibrium. PMID:19591704

    The Schiff base, 2-[(pyridin-2-ylmethylidene)amino]-6-aminopyridine (L) was synthesized by 1:1 condensation of 2-pyridinecarboxaldehyde and 2,6-diaminopyridine. The ligand and its complexes were characterized by different physicochemical studies. The analytical and spectroscopic tools indicated that the synthesized complexes have the general formulae: [M(L)Cl2]·2H2O (M=Cu(II), Ni(II) and Co(II)), [La(L)3](NO3)3·3H2O and [Sm(L)(ClO4)3]·3H2O. Vibrational spectra indicated the coordination of L to metal ions through its pyridyl and azomethine nitrogen atoms. The presence of water molecules in all reported complexes has been supported by TG/DTA studies. Kinetic and thermodynamic parameters were computed using Coats and Redfern method. The prepared ligand and its complexes exhibited intraligand (?-?(?)) fluorescence and can potentially serve as photoactive materials. The catalytic activity of the complexes toward the decomposition of hydrogen peroxide was investigated. Both the ligand and its complexes have been screened for antibacterial activities.

The conductance data indicate the nonelectrolytic nature of the complexes, except VO(II) complex which is electrolytic in nature. On the basis of electronic spectra and magnetic susceptibility octahedral geometry has been proposed for the complexes. The EPR spectra of copper and oxovanadium complexes in DMSO at 300 and 77 K were recorded and its salient features are reported. The redox behavior of the copper(II) complex was studied using cyclic voltammetry. The in vitro antimicrobial activity against Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Salmonella enterica typhi, Bacillus subtilis and Candida strains was studied and compared with that of free ligand by well-diffusion technique. The azo Schiff base exhibited fluorescence properties originating from intraligand (?-??) transitions and metal-mediated enhancement is observed on complexation and so the synthesized complexes can serve as potential photoactive materials as indicated from their characteristic fluorescence properties. On the basis of the optimized structures, the second-order nonlinear optical properties (NLO) are calculated by using second-harmonic generation (SHG) and also the surface morphology of the complexes was studied by SEM.

    An automated biosensor for 1-hydroxypyrene-glucuronide (OHPG) has been developed using a sensor platform initially designed for aflatoxin. The platform is based on the properties of immunoaffinity for sample purification and concentration, and fluorescence for detection. Experiments have demonstrated capture, wash, elution, and quantitation with very good results. The device is handheld and battery- driven, and can be miniaturized further. The bed volume of the column was 0.1 ml with a capacity of about 400 ng of the OHPG. Analysis time was 10 - 11 minutes. The sensitivity was about 0.5 ppb. The antibodies for the system were developed previously and recognize OHPG. The biosensor relies upon microprocessor-controlled minifluidics and fluorometry.

    We show that polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbon (PAH) based field effect transistor (FET) arrays can serve as excellent chemical sensors for the detection of volatile organic compounds (VOCs) under confounding humidity conditions. Using these sensors, w/o complementary pattern recognition methods, we study the ability of PAH-FET(s) to: (i) discriminate between aromatic and non-aromatic VOCs; (ii) distinguish polar and non-polar non-aromatic compounds; and to (iii) identify specific VOCs within the subgroups (i.e., aromatic compounds, polar non-aromatic compounds, non-polar non-aromatic compounds). We further study the effect of water vapor on the sensor array's discriminative ability and derive patterns that are stable when exposed to different constant values of background humidity. Patterns based on different independent electronic features from an array of PAH-FETs may bring us one step closer to creating a unique fingerprint for individual VOCs in real-world applications in atmospheres with varying levels of humidity.

    Structurally diverse copper acetate complexes based on NNO-tridentate Schiff-base ligands were synthesized and characterized as mono-, di-, and trinuclear complexes with respect to varied ancillary ligands. Treatment of the ligand precursors (L(1)-H = 2-(1-((2-(dimethylamino)ethyl)imino)ethyl)-4-methylphenol, L(2)-H = 4-chloro-2-(1-((2-(dimethylamino)ethyl)imino)ethyl)phenol, and L(3)-H = 2-(1-((2-(dimethylamino)ethyl)imino)ethyl)-5-methylphenol) with Cu(OAc)2·H2O (1 equiv) in refluxing ethanol afforded five-coordinate mono- or bimetallic copper complexes ([(L(1))Cu(OAc)(H2O)] (1); [(L(2))Cu(OAc)(H2O)] (2); [(L(3))2Cu2(OAc)2] (3)) in high yields. Dinuclear copper acetate analogue [(L(1))2Cu2(OAc)2] (4) resulted from treatment of L(1)-H as the ligand precursor in refluxing anhydrous MeOH with equimolar proportions of metal acetate salt under a dry nitrogen atmosphere. However, a trinuclear complex, [(L(4))2Cu3(OAc)4] (5), was obtained on utilizing 2-(1-((2-(dimethylamino)ethyl)imino)ethyl)-5-methoxyphenol (L(4)-H) as the proligand under the same synthetic route of 1-3; this complex was also synthesized in the reaction of L(4)-H and copper(II) acetate monohydrate in the ratio of 2:3, giving a quantitative yield. All complexes are active catalysts for copolymerization of cyclohexene oxide (CHO) and CO2 without cocatalysts. In particular, dinuclear Cu complex 3 performed satisfactorily to produce polycarbonates with controllable molecular weights and high carbonate linkages. These copper complexes are the first examples that are effective for both CO2/CHO copolymerization and formation of polymers in a controlled fashion. PMID:24802071

The first method involve the synthesis of the three ligands from condensation reaction of 3,4-dihydroxybenzaldehyde (L?H2) with ethylenediamine (en), o-phenylenediamine (o-PD), or 4,5-dimethyl-1,2-phenylendiamine (DMPD) in a mole ratio of 2:1 followed by the reaction of the resulting Schiff bases ligands with Pd(II) or Pt(II) ions in the presence of 2,2?-dipyridyl (L) to form the di- and tri-nuclear metal complexes. The second method involve the condensation of the Pd complex LPd(II)L?, (L = 2,2?-dipyridyl, L? = 4-formylbenzene-1,2-bis(olate)) with en, o-PD, or DMPD in a mole ratio of 2:1, respectively, followed by reaction with PdCl2 to form di-, tri-, and tetra-nuclear palladium(II) complexes, respectively. Structures of ligands and metal complexes are characterized by physical properties, FT-IR spectra and nuclear magnetic resonance. The geometries of metal complexes are suggested according to elemental analysis, electronic absorption spectra, thermal analysis, atomic absorption, magnetic susceptibility and molar conductance. Cytotoxic activity against lung large cell carcinoma (H460), prostate carcinoma (DU145), breast adenocarcinoma (MCF-7), amelanotic melanoma (M-14), colon adenocarcinoma (HT-29), and chronic myelogenous leukemia (K562) is also reported.

    The excited-state relaxation of retinal protonated Schiff bases (PSBs) is an important test case for biological applications of time-dependent (TD) density-functional theory (DFT). While well-known shortcomings of approximate TD-DFT might seem discouraging for application to PSB relaxation, progress continues to be made in the development of new functionals and of criteria allowing problematic excitations to be identified within the framework of TD-DFT itself. Furthermore, experimental and theoretical ab initio advances have recently lead to a revised understanding of retinal PSB photochemistry, calling for a reappraisal of the performance of TD-DFT in describing this prototypical photoactive system. Here, we re-investigate the performance of functionals in (TD-)DFT calculations in light of these new benchmark results, which we extend to larger PSB models. We focus on the ability of the functionals to describe primarily the early skeletal relaxation of the chromophore and investigate how far along the out-of-plane pathways these functionals are able to describe the subsequent rotation around formal single and double bonds. Conventional global hybrid and range-separated hybrid functionals are investigated as the presence of Hartree-Fock exchange reduces problems with charge-transfer excitations as determined by the Peach-Benfield-Helgaker-Tozer ? criterion and by comparison with multi-reference perturbation theory results. While we confirm that most functionals cannot render the complex photobehavior of the retinal PSB, do we also observe that LC-BLYP gives the best description of the initial part of the photoreaction.

The single-crystal X-ray structures of complexes 1 and 2 exhibit the symmetrical ligands coordinated to the nickel(II) ion in a tetradentate fashion via ONNO donor atoms, while the unsymmetrical ligand L(2) presented a ONO tridentate coordination mode in complex 3. The nickel(II) ions lie in the six-coordinated octahedral environment for the mononuclear complexes 1 and 3, along with dinuclear complex 2. The interaction of the complexes with calf thymus DNA (CT-DNA) has been explored by absorption and emission titration methods, which revealed that complexes 1-3 could interact with CT-DNA through intercalation. The interactions of the complexes with bovine serum albumin (BSA) were also investigated using UV-Vis, fluorescence and synchronous fluorescence spectroscopic methods. The results indicated that all of the complexes could quench the intrinsic fluorescence of BSA in a static quenching process. Further, the in vitro cytotoxic effect of the complexes examined on cancerous cell lines such as human lung carcinoma cell line (A549), human colon carcinoma cell lines (HCT-116), human promyelocytic leukemia cells (HL-60) and colonic cancer cell line Caco-2 showed that all three complexes exhibited substantial cytotoxic activity.

Treatment of phosphonatase with NaBH4 in the absence of substrate or product had no effect on catalysis. Inactivation of phosphonatase with [3H]NaBH4 and phosphonoacetaldehyde, NaBH4 and [14C]acetaldehyde, or NaBH4 and [2-3H]phosphonoacetaldehyde produced in each instance radiolabeled enzyme. The nature of the covalent modification was investigated by digesting the radiolabeled enzyme preparations with trypsin and by separating the tryptic peptides with HPLC. Analysis of the peptide fractions revealed that incorporation of the 3H- or 14C-radiolabel into the protein was reasonably selective for an amino acid residue found in a peptide fragment observed in each of the three trypsin digests. Sequence analysis of the 3H-labeled peptide fragment isolated from the digest of the [2-3H]phosphonoacetaldehyde/NaBH4-treated enzyme identified N epsilon-ethyllysine as the radiolabeled amino acid. The ability of the phosphonatase competitive inhibitor (Ki = 230 +/- 20 microM) acetonylphosphonate to protect the enzyme from phosphonoacetaldehyde/NaBH4-induced inactivation suggested that the reactive lysine residue is located in the enzyme active site. Comparison of the relative effectiveness of phosphonoacetaldehyde and acetaldehyde as phosphonatase inactivators showed that the N-ethyllysine imine that is reduced by the NaBH4 is derived from the corresponding N-(phosphonoethyl) imine. On the basis of these findings, a catalytic mechanism for for phosphonatase is proposed in which phosphonoacetaldehyde is activated for P-C bond cleavage by formation of a Schiff base with an active-site lysine. Accordingly, an N-ethyllsysine enamine rather than the high-energy acetaldehyde enolate anion is displaced from the phosphorus. PMID:3132206

    The biodistribution of an N2 N2 ' tetradentate gold(III) chelate, which is known to be cytotoxic towards a range of human cancer cell lines, was determined by a radiolabelled equivalent of the compound. The (198) Au-labelled gold(III) chelate of a bis(pyrrolide-imine) Schiff base ligand with a three-carbon di(azomethine) linkage was successfully synthesised with a high radiochemical yield of 73% and radiochemical purity of >95%. The high energy ?-ray emitted by the (198) Au nucleus was used to follow the biodistribution of the compound in vivo in six male Sprague Dawley rats on a gamma camera. The log Po/w value of the (nat) Au analogue, -1.92(2), showed that the compound is hydrophilic and therefore likely to largely remain in the blood pool. This was confirmed by the biodistribution study, which showed 21% of the injected dose (ID) remained in the blood pool 4.5?h after injection. This decreased to 10.8% over a 24-h period. The activity measured in the lungs, 1.48%ID/g, remained relatively constant over a 24-h period suggesting that the complex had accumulated in the lungs in the form of particulates, and could not be cleared by the test subjects. The t½ for the heart and lungs was greater than 24?h. Excretion of the test compound is seemingly via the kidneys, but is slow with approximately 30% of the ID excreted within 24?h. PMID:24285532

    Reactions of [MoO2(acac)2] (acac(-) = acetylacetonate) with the potential N2O-donor 5,5-membered fused chelate rings forming Schiff bases 2-(2-pyridylaldimine)ethanol (HL(1)) and 4/5-R-2-(2-pyridylaldimine)phenols (HL(n); n = 2-5 for R = H, 4-Cl, 4-Me and 5-Me, respectively) lead to the facile formation of racemic complexes of the general formula cis-[MoO2(acacL(1-5))] () in 80-85% yield. Here, (acacL(n))(2-) represents a chiral N2O2-donor ligand system formed by a novel Mannich-type reaction that involves acetylacetonate and the azomethine fragment of HL(n) both coordinated to the cis-{MoO2}(2+) unit. The characterization of has been performed with the help of microanalytical (CHN), spectroscopic (ESI-MS, IR, UV-Vis and (1)H- and (13)C-NMR) and electrochemical measurements. The molecular structures of all the complexes except for are authenticated by single crystal X-ray crystallography. The Mo(vi) center in each of these analogous complexes is in a distorted octahedral N2O4 coordination sphere assembled by the chiral N2O2-donor transformed ligand (acacL(n))(2-) and the two mutually cis-oriented oxo ligands. In the crystal lattice, each of exists as a centrosymmetric discrete dimer via a pair of reciprocal N-HO hydrogen bonds between its enantiomeric pairs. PMID:25554121

  18. Spectroscopic Elucidation of the Inhibitory Mechanism of Cys2His2 Zinc Finger Transcription Factors by CobaltIII Schiff Base Complexes

    Transcription factors are key regulators in both normal and pathological cell processes. Affecting the activity of these proteins is a promising strategy for understanding gene regulation and developing effective therapeutics. CoIII Schiff base complexes ([Co(acacen)(L)2]+ where L = labile axial ligands) have been shown to be potent inhibitors of a number of zinc metalloproteins including Cys2His2 zinc finger transcription factors. Inhibition by [Co(acacen)(L)2]+ of the target protein is believed to occur through a dissociative exchange of the labile axial ligands for histidine (His) residues essential for function. Here, we report a series of spectroscopic investigations with model peptides of zinc fingers that elucidate the interaction between [Co(acacen)(L)2]+ complexes and zinc finger transcription factors. Observed changes in NMR chemical shifts and 2D 1H-1H NOESY NMR spectra demonstrate the preference of [Co(acacen)(L)2]+ complexes to coordinate His residues over other amino acids. The conformation of [Co(acacen)(L)2]+ upon His-coordination was characterized by 1H NMR, near-UV circular dichroism, and electronic absorption. These studies reveal that the resulting His-coordinated [Co(acacen)(L)2]+ complex possesses an octahedral structure. The effects of [Co(acacen)(L)2]+ complexes on the zinc finger structure were assessed by the degree of hydrogen bonding (probed by 2D NMR) and secondary structure profiles measured by far-UV circular dichroism. These structural studies demonstrate the ability of [Co(acacen)(L)2]+ complexes to disrupt the ??? structure of zinc fingers, resulting in primarily random coil conformations. A mechanism is described wherein [Co(acacen)(L)2]+ complexes inhibit zinc finger transcription factor activity through selectively coordinating His residues in the zinc finger via dissociative ligand exchange and disrupting the ??? structural motif required for gene regulation.

    The reaction of the dialdehyde N,N-di(?-formylpyrrolyl-?-methyl)-N-methylamine with two equiv. of 2,6-diisopropylaniline yielded two Schiff bases: bis(iminopyrrolylmethyl)amine () and its hydrolyzed monoimino compound () after column separation. The dimeric lithium complex [(HL)Li]2 () containing the monoanionic form of was obtained by treating with (n)BuLi. The presence of both proton donors and acceptors causes the diimino compound to undergo tautomerization to exhibit an amine-azafulvene structure, though the central amine nitrogen competes for a proton. As a result, in the presence of Pd(2+) ions, the cationic complex [Pd(Cl)(H2L)][Cl] () containing one pendant amine-azafulvene arm and the protonated central amine nitrogen was obtained. Its X-ray structure showed that the bond distances are reversed for the imino-pyrrole moiety relative to those in the structure of . However, the reaction of with [Pd(OAc)2] afforded the neutral complex [PdL] () containing the dianionic form of the ligand. The reaction of with [PdCl2(PhCN)2] yielded a zwitterionic complex [PdCl2(H2L')] () owing to the presence of the central amine nitrogen. The formation of these palladium complexes with the features mentioned above can be explained by invoking the Brønsted acid-base character of the Schiff base. Complex is fluxional owing to the up and down movements of the palladium square plane formed by two 5-membered palladacycles, which causes the interconversion of its enantiomers and is studied by the variable temperature (1)H NMR method. Furthermore, both complexes and are precatalysts for the Suzuki-Miyaura cross-coupling reaction in water. Sterically encumbered and electronically different substrates including activated aryl chlorides and benzyl halides gave the coupled products in very good yields. The reaction proceeds even at room temperature and in the presence of a large excess amount of mercury. PMID:25771810

    As part of a program of preparing metal complexes which exhibit unique affinities towards different DNA structures, we have synthesised the novel Schiff base complex N,N'-bis-4-(hydroxysalicylidine)meso-diphenylethylenediaminenickel(ii) (), via the reaction of meso-1,2-diphenylethylenediamine and 2,4-dihydroxybenzaldehyde. This compound was subsequently reacted with 1-(2-chloroethyl)piperidine or 1-(2-chloropropyl)piperidine, to afford the alkylated complexes N,N'-bis-(4-((1-(2-ethyl)piperidine)oxy)salicylidine)meso-1,2-diphenylethylenediaminenickel(ii) () and N,N'-bis-(4-((1-(3-propyl)piperidine)oxy)-salicylidine)meso-1,2-diphenylethylenediaminenickel(ii) (), respectively. These complexes were characterised by microanalysis and X-ray crystallography in the solid state, and in solution by (1)H and (13)C NMR spectroscopy. Electrospray ionisation mass spectrometry (ESI-MS) was used to confirm the identity of () and (). The affinities of () and () towards a discrete 16 mer duplex DNA molecule, and examples of both tetramolecular and unimolecular DNA quadruplexes, was explored using a variety of techniques. In addition, the affinity of two other complexes () and (), towards the same DNA molecules was examined. Complexes () and () were prepared by methods analogous to those which afforded () and (), however 1,2-phenylenediamine was used instead of meso-1,2-diphenylethylenediamine in the initial step of the synthetic procedure. The results of ESI-MS and DNA melting temperature measurements suggest that () and () exhibit a lower affinity than () and () towards the 16 mer duplex DNA molecule, while circular dichroism (CD) spectroscopy suggested that none of the four complexes had a major effect on the conformation of the nucleic acid. In contrast, ESI-MS and CD spectroscopy suggested that both () and () show significant binding to a tetramolecular DNA quadruplex. The results of ESI-MS and Fluorescence Resonance Energy Transfer (FRET) assays indicated that () and () did not bind as tightly to a unimolecular DNA quadruplex, although both complexes had a major effect on the CD spectrum of the latter. These results highlight that the presence of the meso-1,2-diphenylethylenediamine moiety in metal complexes of this type may provide a general method for instilling selectivity for some DNA quadruplexes over dsDNA.

    Complexes of cobalt(II), nickel(II), copper(II) and zinc(II) of general composition [M(L)(H2O)2]·2H2O have been synthesized [L = N,N";-bis(2-hydroxybenzylidene)-1,1-diaminobutane]. The elemental analysis, molar conductance measurements, magnetic susceptibility measurements, mass, IR, UV, NMR, SEM, EDX, thermal and EPR spectral studies of the compounds led to the conclusion that the ligand acts as a tetradentate manner. The molar conductance of the complexes in fresh solution of DMSO lies in the range of 7.46-9.13 ?-1 cm2 mol-1 indicating their non-electrolytic behavior. On the basis of analytical and spectroscopic techniques, octahedral geometry of the complexes was proposed. The Schiff base acts as tetradentate ligand, coordinated through deprotonated phenolic oxygen and azomethine nitrogen atoms. The ligand field parameters were calculated for Co(II), Ni(II) and Cu(II) complexes and their values were found in the range reported for a octahedral structure. The molecular parameters of the ligand and its Co(II), Ni(II), Cu(II) and Zn(II) complexes have been calculated. Protonation constants of Schiff base and stability constants of their binary metal complexes have been determined potentiometrically in 50% DMSO-water media at 25 °C and ionic strength 0.10 M sodium perchlorate.

In these complexes, the ligand is coordinated in a neutral form via pyridine and azomethine nitrogen atoms. The metal ions complete their six coordination with two coordinated nitrate or chloride ions, forming a distorted octahedral geometry. The synthesized compounds have antibacterial activity against the three Gram-positive bacteria: Enterococcus faecalis, Bacillus cereus and Staphylococcus epid and also against the three Gram-negative bacteria: Citrobacter freundii, Enterobacter aerogenes and Salmonella typhi. The activity data show that the complexes are more potent antibacterials than the parent Schiff base.

    A simple condensation of 3-amino-2-methylquinazoline-4-one with 2-hydroxy-1-naphthaldehyde produced new tridentate ONO donor Schiff base ligand with efficient yield. The structural characterization of ligand and its Cu(II), Ni(II), Co(II), Mn(II), Zn(II), and Cd(II) complexes were achieved by the aid of elemental analysis, spectral characterization such as (UV-visible, IR, NMR, mass, and ESR), and magnetic data. The analytical and spectroscopic studies suggest the octahedral geometries of Cu(II), Co(II), Ni(II) and Mn(II) complexes and tetrahedral geometry of Zn(II) and Cd(II) complexes with the tridentate ONO Schiff base ligand. Furthermore, the conclusions drawn from these studies afford further support to the mode of bonding discussed on the basis of their 3D molecular modeling studies by considering different bond lengths, bond angles, and bond distance. The ligand and its metal complexes evaluated for their antimicrobial activity against Staphylococcus aureus (MTCC number 7443), Bacillus subtilis (MTCC number 9878), Escherichia coli (MTCC number 1698), Aspergillus niger (MTCC number 281), and Aspergillus flavus (MTCC number 277).

    A series of dinuclear [Ni(II)Ln(III)] Schiff-base complexes (using a Schiff-base dicompartmental ligand derived from o-vanillin [H(2)valpn = 1,3-propanediylbis(2-iminomethylene-6-methoxy-phenol)]) with Ln = La, Ce, Pr, Nd, Sm, Eu, Gd, Tb, Dy, Ho, Er, and a hydroxo-bridged tetranuclear [Ni(II)Yb(III)] are reported. The crystal structures have been solved for 10 dinuclear complexes revealing four arrangements for the dinuclear units, which are modulated by the coordinated solvent molecules and the nitrato-anion interactions. The magnetic behaviors have been investigated, and the nature of the Ni(II)-Ln(III) exchange interaction has been emphasized by comparison with the behavior of the related [Zn(II)Ln(III)] derivatives. This allowed for establishing that the interaction within these compounds is antiferromagnetic with the 4f ions of the beginning of the Ln series and turns ferromagnetic from Gd(III) toward the end of the series. AC susceptibility investigations clearly show the occurrence of slow relaxation processes of the magnetization close to 2 K for the dinuclear [Ni(II)Dy(III)] complex. PMID:21634381

    A simple and easily synthesized colorimetric and fluorescent receptor 1, based on 4-diethylaminosalicylaldehyde moieties as a binding and signaling unit, has been synthesized and characterized. The receptor 1 has a selective colorimetric sensing ability for copper (II) ion by changing color from colorless to yellow in aqueous solution, and could be utilized to monitor Cu(II) over a wide pH range of 4-11. In addition, the detection limit (12 ?M) of 1 for Cu2+ is much lower than that (30 ?M) recommended by WHO in drinking water, and its copper complex could be reversible simply through treatment with a proper reagent such as EDTA. Moreover, receptor 1 exhibited both a color change from colorless to yellow and fluorescence enhancement with a red shift upon addition to F- in DMSO. The recognition mechanism was attributed to the intermolecular proton transfer between the hydroxyl group of the receptor and the fluoride.

    UV-curable hyperbranched aromatic polyamides were prepared by the acylation reaction of amine terminal groups of hyperbranched polyamides. End amino groups of hyperbranched aromatic polyamides with a molecular weight (IlI) of 11000 or 2600 were chemically modified by acryl, 4- pentenoyl, and 10-undecanoyl chlorides to introduce UV-curable vinyl groups. The photopolymerization kinetics of the UV-curable hyperbranched aromatic polyamides was investigated by

    Tobacco smoke, recognized as a major etiological factor for cancers of the upper aerodigestive tract, represents an abundant source of reactive oxygen species (ROS), which are believed to play a significant role in mutagenesis and carcinogenesis. An additional source of ROS in tissues exposed to tobacco smoke may be metabolic oxidation of polycyclic aromatic hydrocarbons (PAH). To investigate the relationships between oxidative DNA lesions and aromatic DNA adducts, six modified DNA bases 5-hydroxyuracil, 5-hydroxycytosine, 7,8-dihydro-8-oxoguanine, 7,8-dihydro-8-oxoadenine, 2,6-diamino-4-hydroxy-5-formamidopyrimidine and 4,6-diamino-5-formamidopyrimidine and the total level of PAH-related DNA adducts were measured in cancerous and the surrounding normal larynx tissues (68 subjects), using gas chromatography/isotope-dilution mass spectroscopy with selected ion monitoring and the 32P-postlabeling-HPLC assay, respectively. The levels of oxidative DNA lesions in cancerous and adjacent tissue were comparable; the differences between the two types of tissue were significant only for 5-hydroxypyrimidines (slightly higher levels were observed in the adjacent tissue). Comparable levels of DNA lesions in cancerous and the surrounding normal tissues observed in the larynx tumors support a field cancerization theory. The surrounding tissues may still be recognized as normal by histological criteria. However, molecular alterations resulting from the chronic tobacco smoke exposure, which equally affects larynx epithelia, may lead to multiple premalignant lesions. Thus, a demonstration of similar levels of DNA damage in cancerous and the adjacent tissue could explain a frequent formation of secondary tumors in the larynx and the frequent recurrence in this type of cancer. A weak, but distinct effect of tumor grading and metastatic status was observed in both kinds of tissue in the case of 5-hydroxyuracil, 5-hydroxycytosine, 7,8-dihydro-8-oxoguanine, 7,8-dihydro-8-oxoadenine. This effect was displayed as a gradual shift in the data distribution toward high values from G1 through G2-G3 and from non-metastatic to metastatic tumors. Since the levels of oxidative DNA base modifications tended to increase with the tumor aggressiveness, we postulate that the oxidative DNA lesions increase genetic instability and thus contribute to tumor progression in laryngeal cancer. No associations between aromatic adduct levels and oxidative DNA lesions were present, suggesting that the metabolism of PAH does not contribute significantly to the oxidative stress in larynx tissues, remaining the tobacco smoke ROS as a major source of oxidative DNA damage in the exposed tissue.

    Ab initio quantum chemistry calculations for model molecules can be used to parameterize force fields for molecular dynamics simulations of polymers. Emphasis in our research group is on using quantum chemistry-based force fields for molecular dynamics simulations of organic polymers in the melt and glassy states, but the methodology is applicable to simulations of small molecules, multicomponent systems and solutions. Special attention is paid to deriving reliable descriptions of the non-bonded and electrostatic interactions. Several procedures have been developed for deriving and calibrating these parameters. Our force fields for aromatic polyimide simulations will be described. In this application, the intermolecular interactions are the critical factor in determining many properties of the polymer (including its color).

    Permeability and selectivity of pervaporation membranes based on homopolymers of sulfonated aromatic amides and their random copolymer are studied. It is shown that slight differences in macromolecular configuration of homopolymers caused by the introduction of benzene rings into polymer chain in meta or para positions substantially change the membrane transport properties with respect to water–organic solutions. During an unsteady-state process,
