Abstract


New mononuclear ternary transition metal complexes: [M(HL)(bipy)2]ClO4, (M: Mn(II) for 1, Ni(II) for 2), [M(HL)(bipy) (ClO4)], (M: Ni(II) for 3, Cu(II) for 4, Zn(II) for 5) with M(II), 2-[(E)-(hydroxyimino)methyl]-4-[(E)-phenyldiazenyl]phenol, H2L, and 2,2ˈ-bipyridine were synthesized. The structures of the complexes were investigated by using various analytical, spectroscopic techniques such as elemental analysis, FTIR, UV-Vis, NMR, MALDI-TOF mass spectrometry, thermal analysis, and computational studies containing geometric optimizations and theoretical calculations of vibrations and electronic transitions. IR and thermal analysis data verifies the proposed structure of the complexes. The inhibition activities of the complexes against acetylcholinesterase (AChE) extracted from Ricania simulans adults and nymphs were examined and all the complexes were found to be active. Among the complexes studied, the most inhibition activity was exhibited by complex 5 with the lowest IC50 value (3.2±0.8) for AChE of adults, complex 3 with the lowest IC50 value (4.6±0.8) for AChE of nymphs.
