Synthesis and characterization of a novel schiff base of 1,2-diaminopropane with substituted salicyaldehyde and its transition metal complexes: Single crystal structures and biological activities
A novel schiff base H2L derived from simple condensation of 2-hydroxy-6-isopropyl-3-methyl benzaldehyde and 1,2-diaminopropane in 2:1 M ratio and its [MnL], [CoL] and [NiL]2 complexes have been prepared and characterized by spectroscopic technique, elemental analysis, SEM-EDX analysis, and cyclic voltammetry. Additionally, single crystal X-ray diffraction technique has been applied to the schiff base ligand H2L and its nickel complex. The structure of nickel complex exhibited dimeric form with formula [NiL]2 with distorted square planar geometry around each nickel center. Furthermore, all the synthesized compounds were screened for their antimicrobial and antioxidant and DNA cleavage activities.
