MS36-P24 Topological analysis and properties of new imidazole-based systems as potential candidates for biological applicationsTransition metal complexes based on imidazole have shown significant interest in biological systems, especially carboxylate mixed-ligands systems of copper(II), which display a variety of pharmacological effects, including antitumor, superoxide dismutase and catecholase activities . Despite the considerable number of the reported imidazole systems built of different carboxylate ligands and metallic centers, namely ; copper, cobalt, nickel, manganese, cadmium and ruthenium, the crystallographic information about imidazole-based copper(II) complexes containing citrate mixed-ligands is rather rare, except for only two hexacoordinated complexes of cobalt and nickel . In order to contribute to the well-understanding of these systems, the one-pot synthesis, the crystal structure, the properties and the topological nets of two copper(II) potential candidates for biological applications involving imidazole and citrate mixed-ligands were reported .References:
