A new series of hexacoordinated octahedral nickel(II) complexes of 2-(pyridin-3-ylmethylsulfanyl)phenylamine (L) formulated as [Ni(L)4(X)2] (1–4) [where X = Cl- (1); NCO- (2); N3- (3) and NCS- (4)] has been synthesised and characterised by physicochemical, spectroscopic tools. Details of structural study of complex 1 using single crystal X-ray crystallography showed that distorted tetragonal environment around nickel(II) ion has been satisfied by four pyridinic-N donors of four organic moieties (L) and two chloride ions.

Abstract

A new series of hexacoordinated octahedral nickel(II) complexes of 2-(pyridin-3-ylmethylsulfanyl)phenylamine (L) formulated as [Ni(L)4(X)2] (1–4) [where X = Cl- (1); NCO- (2); N3- (3) and NCS- (4)] has been synthesised and characterised by physicochemical, spectroscopic tools. Details of structural study of complex 1 using single crystal X-ray crystallography showed that distorted tetragonal environment around nickel(II) ion has been satisfied by four pyridinic-N donors of four organic moieties (L) and two chloride ions. All the complexes are redox active and the electrochemical study of the complexes showed only cathodic NiII/NiI redox couples in the range of -0.61 to -695 V versus Ag/AgCl. Interactions of 1 towards calf thymus-DNA by spectroscopic, viscosity-measurement and electrochemical study and towards bovine serum albumin (BSA) with the help of absorption and fluorescence spectroscopy were examined. Antibacterial activity of the complexes (1–4) studied by agar disc diffusion method showed the comparable inhibition activity of the nickel(II) complexes against some pathogenic bacteria namely Escherichia coli, Vibrio cholerae, Streptococcus pneumonia, Shigella sp. and Bacillus cereus.
