Abstract

O-Methoxybenzaldehyde-2-furanthiocarboxyhydrazone (HL), 2-furaldehyde-2-furanthiocarboxyhydrazone (HL), and 5-nitro-2-furaldehyde-2-furanthiocarboxyhydrazone (HL“) form deprotonated complexes ML2 (M-Cu and Zn), ML'2(M = Cu and Ni), and ML2(M = Cu, Ni, and Zn). The complexes have been characterized by elemental analyses, electrical conductances, and IR spectra. The IR spectra showed that HL, HL, and HL” behave as bidentate ligands in these complexes. The ligands and the complexes were tested for their antibacterial and antifungal actions against Bacillus subtilis, Staphylococcus aureus, Escherichia coli, Monilia albicans, Aspergillus niger, and Penicillium notatum. HL”, CU12, and CUL2were found to exhibit strong bacteriotoxicity. © 1988, Taylor & Francis Group, LLC. All rights reserved.
