Abstract [en]

Synthesis and characterization of six new complexes [Cu[2,6-(MeO)(2)nic)(2)(H2O)](2) (1), [Cu{2,6-(MeO)(2)nic)(2)(H2O)](2)center dot 3DMF (2), where 2,6-(MeO)(2)nic is 2,6-dimethoxynicotinate and DMF is N,N-dimethylformamide, [Cu(3-pyacr)(2)(H2O)(2)](n) (3), where 3-pyacr is trans-3-(3-pyridyl)acrylate, [Cu(en)(2)(H2O)(2)]X-2, where X is 2,6-(MeO)(2)nic (4) or 3-pyacr (5) and en is ethylenediamine, and [Cu(3-pyacr)(2)(dien)([mu-H2O)(0.5)](2) center dot 7H(2)O (6), where then is diethylenetriamine are reported. The characterizations were based on elemental analysis, infrared, electronic and EPR spectra, and magnetic measurements over a temperature range of 1.8-300 K. Crystal structures of complexes 2, 4 and 6 have been determined by X-ray single crystal structure analysis. The available evidence supports dimeric structure of the acetate type for 1 and 2. Crystal structure of polymeric complex 3 has been determined from X-ray powder diffraction data. The 3-pyacr anions in pairs form bridges between two octahedrally surrounded copper(II) atoms in such a way that one 3-pyacr is coordinated to the first Cu-II by an oxygen atom of its carboxyl group and to the second Cu-II by the nitrogen atom of its pyridine ring, while the other is coordinated to the same two Cu-II atoms in a similar way, but the other way round. Environment about the copper(II) atom for 4 and 5 is a square bipyramid (4+2). In complex 6 both Cu-II central atoms are bridged only by an axial water molecule forming a dimeric structure with the considerably long separation of Cu-II atoms of 5.194 angstrom and the angle Cul-O3-Cula of 150.79 degrees. Moreover, results of the quantitative determination of antimicrobial activity of the complexes as well as above organic ligands alone are discussed.
