    • Abstract

       

      The authors of the title paper (J. Chem. Sci. (2020) 132 44) claim to have synthesized and characterized a carbonyl releasing Schiff base complex of Fe(III) to study its antimicrobial and anticancer properties. A critical analysis of the reported claims reveals that the so-called carbonyl releasing Schiff base complex formulated as containing two carbonyl (CO) ligands bonded to a pentavalent iron, is a dubious material. In this letter to the Editor, it is proved that the title paper is completely erroneous.
