Elaborated studies for the ligitional behavior of thiouracil derivative towards Ni(II), Pd(II), Pt(IV), Cu(II) and UO2 ² ions.

PMID 22743608


A synthesis of new thiouracil derivative was carried out and deliberately investigated. A new series of complexes was prepared using Ni(II), Pd(II), Pt(IV), Cu(II) and UO(2)(+2) ions. IR spectral data proposed the coordination mod of the ligand towards each metal ion and displays the binegative pentadentate mod as the maximum mod of coordination obtained with Ni(II) and Cu(II) complexes. (1)HNMR spectrum of UO(2)(+2) complex in comparing with the free ligand spectrum supports the binegative appearance of the coordinated ligand through the ionization of CO and CS groups. The electronic spectral data as well as the magnetic moment measurements are coincide with each others to propose the square-planar geometry with Ni(II), Pd(II) and Cu(II) complexes and octahedral geometry with the others. ESR spectrum of Cu(II) complex displays axially symmetric g tensor parameters with g(11)>g(⊥)>2.0023 indicating that the [Formula: see text] orbital as a ground state with the square-planar geometry. The TG analysis for all isolated complexes were carried out to assert about the presence of water molecules physically or chemically attached with the central atom. The biological study was carried out against different microorganisms as gram negative, gram positive and fungi. The comparable data display the relative priority of Ni(II) complex in comparing with others against all organisms but, the other complexes display activity by the same with the free ligand.
