ANTIMICROBIAL STUDIES OF NEW RARE EARTH METAL(III) COMPLEXES OF SCHIFF BASE LIGANDS WITH 1-H INDOLE-(2, 3-DIONE): SYNTHESIS, PHYSIO-CHEMICAL, MAGNETIC, ELECTROCHEMICAL AND SPECTRAL STUDIESAbstract
New complexes of La (III) and Nd (III) with bidentate Schiff base ligands, 1-H indole-(2, 3-dione) hydrazinecarbothioamide (L1H), 1-H indole-(2, 3-dione) hydrazinecarboxamide (L2H) have been synthesized and characterised. The stoichiometry of the complexes is originated in the type of [Ln (L1, 2) 3].3H2O for both metals. The characterization and nature of bonding of these complexes were elucidated by elemental analysis, melting point, molecular weight determinations, electronic spectra, redox behavior, magnetic and EPR studies, IR, 1H and 13C NMR spectral studies. From an elemental analysis, the complexes are in 1:3 (metal: ligand). Whole studies propose non-electrolytic behaviour and an octahedral geometry of Ln (III) complexes. La (III) and Nd (III) metal complexes and their parent ligands tested antimicrobial potency in-vitro, and the result indicates that metal complexes are more active than parent ligands.
