Abstract
A new series of Mn(II) and Mo(VI) complexes containing the Schiff bases hydrazinecarbothioamide and hydrazinecarboxamide of 5,6-dimethyl-1H-indol-2,3-dione have been synthesized.The nature of bonding and the stereochemistry of the complexes have been deduced from elemental analyses, molecular weight determinations and spectral studies viz. electronic IR, ESR, 1H NMR and 13C NMR and X-ray diffraction spectral studies. The magnetic moment values of the manganese(II) complexes are in the range of 5.80-6.15 B.M. suggesting a high spin state of manganese in these complexes. The spectral data are consistent with a tetrahedral geometry around Mn(II) and an octahedral geometry for Mo(VI), in which the ligands act as bidentate chelating agents, coordinated through the nitrogen and sulfur/oxygen atoms. The ligands and their metal complexes have been tested against a number of pathogenic fungi and bacteria at different concentrations and were found to possess sufficient fungicidal and bactericidal properties. Further, the complexes were also tested for their antifertility activity in male albino rats and the results were indeed positive.
