Synthesis, structure characterization, DNA binding, and cleavage properties of mononuclear and tetranuclear cluster of copper(II) complexes

Vafazadeh, Rasoul; Willis, Anthony C.; Mehdi Heidari, Mohammad; Hasanzade, Naime


Two copper(II) complexes, cluster 1, and mononuclear 2, have been synthesized by reacting acetylacetone and benzohydrazide (1:1 ratio for 1 and 1:2 ratio for 2) with CuCl2 in a methanol solution. In 2, which is a new complex, the ligand acts as a tetradentate which binds the metal ion via two amide-O atoms and two imine-N atoms providing an N2O2 squa-re-planar around the copper(II) ion. The absorption spectra data evidence strongly suggested that the two copper(II) compounds could interact with...[Show more]
