Abstract


A number of new 1:1 complexes of SnMe2Cl2 with unsymmetrical tetradentate Schiff base ligand with NNOS coordination sphere have been synthesized and fully characterized by a variety of physico-chemical techniques viz. elemental analysis, molar conductivity, 1H and 119Sn NMR, IR and mass spectroscopy. IR spectral data show that the fifth coordination position of tin atom is occupied by an oxygen atom of Schiff base ligands. In the light of titled techniques, trigonal bipyramidal geometry around the tin atom is proposed for the synthesized complexes. The in vitro antibacterial activities of the complexes against Staphylococcus aureus and Escherichia Coli have been studied. It was found that they possess significant antibacterial activity. Also, DFT/B3LYP method was used to analyze the electronic structures and study of the geometries. The thermodynamic formation constants of the complexes were determined spectrophotometrically at 25ºC in DMF solvent.


Keywords
