Abstract:

<p>A multi-component reaction involving metal ion, amines and formaldehyde has been used for a series of decaaza bismacrocyclic complexes M2L(CH3COO)(4)center dot nH(2)O [(1) M: Ni, n = 2.5; (2) M:Cu, n = 1; (3) M:Zn, n = 10; L:1,3-bis(N,N-1,3,6,9,12-pentaazacyclotridecane)-benzene] preparation. Elemental analyses, ESI-MS, IR, UV-Vis-NIR, NMR and EPR spectra, magnetic susceptibility at room temperature, molar conductivities, as well as thermogravimetric analysis, provided data concerning complexes features. The macrocyclic ligand behaves as bischelate, resulting in either a square planar or an octahedral stereochemistry. The in vitro screening of the antimicrobial activity was performed against both reference and clinical isolates multi-drug-resistant strains. The overall antimicrobial potency of complexes was enhanced in comparison with the free ligand, against both planktonic and biofilm-embedded pathogenic strains. Complexes exhibit no cytotoxicity on the HCT 8 tumour cells. Thermogravimetric curves (TG, DTG and DTA) evidenced in air processes as water elimination, acetate into carbonate transformation as well as oxidative degradation of the bismacrocyclic ligand. The powder X-ray diffraction data indicate MO (M: Ni, Cu, Zn) as final product.</p>
