A novel dinuclear schiff base copper complex as an efficient and cost effective catalyst for oxidation of alcohol: Synthesis, crystal structure and theoretical studies
Atena Naeimi Samira Saeednia Mehdi Yoosefian Hadi Amiri Rudbari Viviana Mollica Nardo
An environmentally friendly protocol is described for an economic, practical laboratory-scale oxidation of primary and secondary alcohols to aldehydes and ketones, using a bis-chloro-bridged binuclear Cu(II) complex [(HL)Cu(𝜇2-Cl)2Cu(HL)]*1.5 CH3OH as catalyst. The catalyst was prepared in situ from commercially available reagents and is characterized by single crystal X-ray analysis, FT-IR, UV-visible spectra, mass spectrometry, and powder x-ray diffraction (PXRD). The geometry of the complex has been optimized using the B3LYP level of theory confirming the experimental data. Our results demonstrated well the efficiency, selectivity and stability of this new catalyst in the oxidation of alcohols in ethanol and tert-butyl hydroperoxide (tBuOOH) as a green solvent and oxidant, respectively. Turnover number and reusability have proven the high efficiency and relative stability of the catalyst.

Synthesis, characterization, X-ray crystal structure, electrochemical evaluation and anti-cancer studies of a mixed ligand Cu(II) complex of (E)-N′-((2-hydroxynaphthalen-1-yl)methylene)acetohydrazide

A ternary mixed ligand Cu(II) complex, [Cu(L)(Phen)], was prepared from the reaction of (E)-N′-((2-hydroxynaphthalen-1-yl)methylene)acetohydrazide [HL], Cu(NO3)2.3H2O and 1,10-Phenanthroline in 1:1:1 molar ratio. This complex was fully characterized using spectroscopic and physicochemical methods. The structure of the complex was determined by single crystal X-ray diffraction. The Cu(II) center is coordinated by two oxygen and one nitrogen donors of L2− and nitrogen atoms of the heterocyclic group. Electrochemical studies of the Cu(II) complex showed shifts in the ligand peaks as well as the appearance of new peaks after complexation. The electrochemical behavior of the Cu(II) complex was also studied using cyclic voltammetry. According to biochemical investigation (MCF-7 cells viability), anticancer activity of [Cu(L)(Phen)] was higher than those of Cu(NO3)2.3H2O, HL and 1,10-Phenanthroline.
