Synthesis, characterization and antimicrobial properties of a Co(II)-phthalylsulfathiazolate complex.


PMID 20526731

Abstract

The reaction between phthalylsulfathiazole (H(2)PST), in alkaline aqueous solution, and cobalt(II) nitrate led to a pink solid, [Co(PST)(H(2)O)(4)] (1), which was characterized by elemental and thermogravimetric analysis; FT-IR, Raman and diffuse reflectance spectra. Spectroscopic data reveal that the ligand would be doubly deprotonated and that the Co(II) ion environment is a distorted octahedral one. (1) showed antibacterial activity similar to the ligand.
