Abstract A novel N-substituted Schiff base ligand: N-(3,4,5-trimethoxybenzylidene)-2,3-dimethylbenzenamine was designed and successfully characterized by several spectroscopic techniques. The formation of the desired compound was confirmed by the appearance of C N peak at 1691 cm−1 in FT-IR spectrum. Similarly, in 1H and 13C NMR spectra, the peaks at 8.22 ppm for azomethine proton (HC N) and 158.8 ppm for azomethine carbon (C N) confirm the formation of the synthesized compound. DNA interaction of the compound was screened by using UV–visible spectroscopy and viscometry measurements confirming an intercalation mode. The interaction of compound with CTAB (Cetyl trimethylammonium bromide) was also studied by conductometric method showing a strong interaction with CTAB. The IC50 value of the current compound was highly efficacious upon comparison with the standard Glucantime used. This activity represents a higher multitude interaction, which might be a cause of enhanced antileishmanial activity. Cytotoxicity results showed that this compound is highly active even at lower concentrations and is biocompatible, making it a promising drug candidate for further investigations in this field. The experimental data were auxiliary supported by molecular docking studies in order to explore their binding behavior and the stability of the molecule due to its interaction within the receptor active site.

Abstract Carboxylate ligands are widely used in chemistry and pharmacy owing to their ability to form stable complexes with a large variety of metal ions. In that context, carboxylate complexes allow modulation of the pharmaceutical products. Herein, a series of six novel Zn(II) carboxylates: [Zn(L1)2] (1), [Zn(L1)2 (bipy)] (2), [Zn(L1)2 (phen)] (3), [Zn(L2)2] (4), [Zn(L2)2 (bipy)] (5) and [Zn(L2)2 (phen)] (6) (where L1 = 4-(2-methoxy-5-nitrophenylamino)-4-oxobutanoic acid), L2 = 4-(2-nitro-4-me...

A dyad bearing a disulfide spacer and a naphtholyl terminal group with imine functionality has been synthesised (compound LH2) and assessed for its metal ion binding ability in an aqueous medium. This receptor molecule selectively binds Mg2+, with an enhancement in fluorescence intensity of the band at 550 nm. The results show a turn-on response for Mg2+ binding through a PET mechanism. The photophysical properties of the receptor in different solvents, at various pH values and with various meta...

Abstract Fourteen new organotin(IV) carboxylate complexes with peptide linkage of (2-(4-methoxy-2-nitrophenylcarbamoyl)benzoic acid) were successfully synthesized and characterized by elemental analyses, FT-IR, NMR ( 1 H, 13 C and 119 Sn) and single crystal X-ray techniques. FT-IR results of the sodium salt of 2-(4-methoxy-2-nitrophenylcarbamoyl)benzoic acid and complexes showed that the coordination took place via oxygen atoms of the carboxylate group. 1 J ( 119 Sn- 13 C), 2 J ( 119 Sn- 1 H) an...

Abstract Corrosion and thermo-chemistry is a prominent discipline of physical science. In the conspicuous fascination to design potent durable materials herein, we report the synthesis of an oxoperoxomolybdenum(VI) complex containing maltol and acetylacetone as co-ligands. Magnetic susceptibility measurements, FAB mass spectrometry, FT-IR spectroscopy and thermal analysis are the main characterization techniques that have been used to arrive at the proposed structure of the compound. Experimenta...

Four new organotin (IV) complexes with general formula R3SnL/R2SnL2, where R = CH3, n-C4H9, C6H5 and L = Levofloxacin, were synthesized and characterized by elemental analyses, FT-IR and NMR (1H and 13C) spectroscopy. Spectroscopic data suggested a six-coordinated geometry for diorganotin(IV) derivatives and a five-coordinated geometry for triorganotin(IV) derivatives. The value of Me–Sn–Me bond angle for di- and trimethyltin complexes using the Lockhart equation, were 150° and 116°, respectivel...

A Schiff-base derived from leucine and acetylacetone, and its Cu(II), Ni(II) and Mn(II) complexes were synthesized and analyzed based on their melting point/decomposition temperature, solubility, molar conductance, magnetic and infrared analyses. Physical and analytical data suggested that the Schiff base acted as tridentate ligand towards metal ion via azomethine-N, deprotonated-O of carboxylic group and enolic-O group of acetylacetone. All the c mplexes have lower molar conductance values (6.4...

N-Myristoyltransferase (NMT) is a potential drug target in Leishmania parasites. Scaffold-hopping from published inhibitors yielded the serendipitous discovery of a chemotype selective for Leishmania donovani NMT; development led to high affinity inhibitors with excellent ligand efficiency. The binding mode was characterised by crystallography and provides a structural rationale for selectivity.

Abstract Three new transition metal (Co(II), Ni(II) and Cu(II)) complexes of Schiff’s base ligand were prepared in situ by refluxing stoichiometric amounts of respective metal salts with 2-hydroxy-1-naphthaldehyde and 2-picolylamine. The structural feature of the synthesized complexes was derived from spectral (FT-IR, UV–Vis and ESI-mass) studies and elemental analysis. The single crystal X-ray diffraction analysis of complex 3 showed the structure as dimeric form [Cu(2-hnppa)Cl]2 and each coppe...

Abstract The carboxylic acid functional group plays a fundamental role in the biochemistry of living systems as well as in drug design by enhancing the hydrophilicity of drugs as well as their polarity which in turn affect their bioavailability. Two new carboxylic acid derivatives with molecular formula C15H12N2O6, (1) and C11H12N2O6 (2) were successfully confirmed by different instrumental techniques. Confirmation by FT-IR and 1H NMR techniques was proved by the presence of the OH peak (3289 cm...

Abstract In this paper, the interaction between rifampin, a known antibiotic used against tuberculosis, and DNA helix is investigated by applying multiple biophysical and molecular modelling approaches in an aqueous solution at pH 7.4 and 5. It was proved that the fluorescence quenching of labeled probe DNA by rifampin is a result of the complex formation of rifampin in groove of DNA. Binding parameters were calculated using the logarithmic Hill equation to provide a quantitative term of the bin...
