  • Abstract

    A new complexes of the type ML and M¢L [where M=Cu (II), Co (II), and Ni(II), Mn(II) and Fe(III) M¢=Zn(II), Cd(II) and Hg(II)]. L=N'-(1-(5-bromo-2- hydroxyphenyl)ethylidene)-2-oxo-2H-chromene-3-carbohydrazide (HL) Schiff base have been synthesized and characterized by elemental analysis, magnetic susceptibility, molar conductance, IR, 1H NMR, UV-Visible and ESR data. The studies indicate the HL acts as doubly Monodentate Bridge for metal ions and formmononuclear complexes. The complexes Ni(II), Co(II), Cu(II), Mn(II) and Fe(III) omplexes are found to be octahedral, where as Zn(II), Cd(II) and Hg(II) complexes are four coordinated with tetrahedral geometry. The synthesized ligand and its metalcomplexes were screened for their antimicrobial activity.

Sulekh Chandra, Rajavally Prem and Smriti Raizada

  • Abstract

    A novel hexadentate nitrogen donor [N6] macrocyclic ligand, ie. Hexa azabipyH2 (L) has been synthesized. Cr(III) and Cu(II) complexes of this ligand have been prepared and characterized by elemental analyses, molar conductance measurements, magnetic susceptibility measurements, mass, 1H NMR (ligand), IR, electronic and EPR spectral studies. On the basis of molar conductance the Cr(III) complexes may be formulated as Cr(L)X3 and Cu(II) complexes may be formulated as Cu(L)X2, where X= Cl-, Br-, NO3 -, and CH3COO-. On the basis of IR, electronic and EPR spectral studies an octahedral geometry has been designated to Cr(III) and tetragonal for Cu(II) complexes.

On The Dipole Moment of Polar Molecules

Ruchitha Goonatilake and Raghuvarun Reddy Mutyala

  • Abstract

    In this experiment, the dipole moments of 1,2- and 1,3- dichlorobenzene were explored. This was done indirectly, by measuring the frequency to obtain the dielectric constant, and the index of refraction. The dipole moment of both molecules was determined using these values, through Hegestrand’s and Guggenheim’s methods. The values obtained from Hegestrand’s method were 2.77 D for 1, 2-dichlorobenzene and 1.89 D for 1, 3-dichlorobenzene. From Guggenheim’s method, the values of 0.21 D and 0.14 D were obtained for 1, 2- and 1, 3-dichlorobenzne, respectively. The dipole moment was found to decrease as the substituent’s been farther apart supporting the predictions. In addition, the data indicated that the experiment was performed with moderate success depicting its general trend.

Nilesh G. Limbachiya and K. K. Desai

  • Abstract

    The ligand 2'-Hydroxy-4'-butoxychalcone oxime (HBCO) was developed as a new analytical reagent for the spectrophotometric analysis of Fe (III) ion. In the pH range of 2.0 to 4.5 this reagent forms 70% aqueous ethanol soluble purple colored complex with Fe (III). Job's method of continuous variation and Yoe and Jone's mole ratio method revealed the stoichiometry of the complex to be 1:1 [M:L]. The obeyence of Beer's law was studied and the molar absorptivity was calculated. The reagent has been used to determine iron in medicinal sample "Fefol".

R. Ravichandran, M. Rajendran, D. Devapiriam

  • Abstract

    The drug cis-platin development has raised new issues like metal complexes in biochemistry. The modeling of their biochemical properties involves the accurate determination of thermodynamically data, like stability constants. The chalcone 2’-hydroxychalcone and 2’-hydroxy-3,4-dimethoxychalcone have been synthesized and characterized with FT-IR,1H-NMR, 13C-NMR spectroscopic techniques. By using UV visible spectroscopy method the mole fraction ratio for Copper, Nickel and Zinc with 2-hydroxychalcone and 2’-hydroxy-3,4- dimethoxychalcone complexes were determined and it was found to be 1:1. The stability constants of this complex have been determined by Job’s method. The stability constant (Kf) of Copper, Zinc and Nickel with 2’-hydroxychalcone complexes in acetate buffer pH = 4.4 were determined to be 8.8 x 105 , 1.34 x 105 and 5.6 x 105 respectively. The Kf of Copper, Zinc and Nickel with 2’-hydroxy-3,4- dimethoxychalcone were determined at the same pH and that the values are 5.2 x 105 , 5.4 x 104 and 2.5 x 104 respectively. Antioxidant activity of these chalcones was evaluated by using 1,1’-diphenyl-2-picrylhydrazyl (DPPH) and 2,2’-Azino-bis (3-ethylbenzothiazoline-6-sulfonic acid (ABTS) radicals scavenging methods, which showed that the antioxidant activity of 2’-hydroxychalcone has higher value than the 2’-hydroxy-3,4-dimethoxychalcone.

Shashi Kant and Manish Kumar

  • Abstract

    The density (ρ) and sound velocity (u) has been measured for LiCl, NaCl and KCl in 0.01 mol kg-1 aqueous citric acid solution at four different temperatures T =((303.15, 308.15, 313.15, and 318.15) K).These parameters were then used to obtain different acoustic functions such as adiabatic compressibility (β), intermolecular free length (Lf),specific acousticimpedance (Z), solvation number(SN) and molar compressibility(W). The ion- solvent and ion-ion interactions in the system have been discussed using these parameters. The effect of LiCl, NaCl and KCl on these interactions as well as on the solvent structure has also been discussed.

Microwave Assisted Synthesis of Some Bioactive Chalcones and Their Pyrazoline and Isoxazolines Derivatives

Deepika Rao, A. Wasi, Dr. SushilSahu and Bhupendra Kumar Sharma

  • Abstract

    Condensation of acetone with substituted benzaldehyde in presence of some basic alumina under microwave irradiation affords 1, 5-substituted diphenyl-1, 4-pentadiene-3-one chalcones. These chalcones undergo facile and clean cyclization with hydrazines RNHNH2 (R= Ph, C6H4 (NO2)2, CONH2, CSNH2) under microwave irradiation to afford 3, 5-arylated 2-pyrazolines in quantitative yields. The cyclocondensation of synthesized chalcones with hydroxylamine hydrochloride resulted in the formation of isoxazoline derivatives. The structures of all the compounds have been established on the basis of analytical and spectral data. All the synthesized compounds have screened for antibacterial and antifungal activity. Some synthesized compounds were found to exhibit excellent antibacterial and anti fungal activity. The results obtained indicate that, unlike classical heating, microwave irradiation results in higher yields in shorter reaction times and cleaner reactions.

  • Abstract

    New transition metal complexes of the composition, M[L(H2O)]2, where M= Fe(II), Ni(II), Co(II) and Cu(II); L= ligands prepared from 3-acetyl-4-hydroxy-8- methylpyrano[3,2-c]chromene-2,5-dione(LI) and 4-hydroxy-8-methyl-3-(3-oxobutyanoyl) pyrano [3,2-c]chromen-2,5-dione (LII), were synthesized and characterized by elemental analyser, conductivity measurement, IR, UV-Vis. and 1H-NMR spectral techniques. The low conductance data provide evidence for the non-ionic nature of the complexes. The antimicrobial activities of the ligands and their complexes have been studied by screening the compounds against the bacteria E. coli and B. megaterium and also the fungi C. albicans and A. niger. The data indicate that most of the metal complexes have higher antimicrobial activity than the free ligands. The DNA cleavage experiments, performed using gel electrophoresis with the corresponding metal complexes in the presence of H2O2 showed good results.

Corrosion Resistance of Mild Steel Simulated Concrete Pore Solution in Presence of Carboxy Methyl Cellulose

Shanthi T and S. Rajendran S

  • Abstract

    Corrosion resistance of mild steel in simulated concrete pore solution (SCPS) Prepared in well water in the absence and presence of carboxy methyl cellulose (CMC) and Zn2+has been evaluated by weight loss method. It is observed that when CMC is added the corrosion inhibition efficiency (IE) increases. As the concentration of CMC increases, inhibition efficiency decreases. 50 ppm of CMC has 98% IE . 100 ppm of CMC shows 95% IE. When 50 ppm of Zn2+is added to the above system , both system shows 90% and 80% IE.The mechanistic aspects of corrosion inhibition have been investigated by polarization study and AC impedance spectra. The scanning electron microscopy (SEM) study confirms the protection of mild steel surface by strong adsorption of CMC.
