Abstract

Four mononuclear copper(II) complexes of two new carboxamide derivatives formulated as [Cu(L1)2](ClO4)2 (1a), [Cu(L1)2](NO3)2 (1b), [Cu(L2)2(H2O)2](ClO4)2 (2a), and [Cu(L2)2(H2O)](NO3)2(2b) have been isolated in pure form from the reaction of L1 and L2 [where L1 = N-(furan-2-ylmethyl)-2-pyridinecarboxamide and L2 = N-(thiophen-2-ylmethyl)-2-pyridinecarboxamide] with copper(II) salts of perchlorate and nitrate. All the complexes were characterized by physicochemical and spectroscopic tools along with single-crystal X-ray diffraction studies. The structural analyses showed that 1 is monomeric of square planar geometry with copper(II) chelated by two L1 ligands. Complex 2 differs in coordination geometry, being octahedral and distorted square pyramidal. Two L2 ligands occupy the equatorial positions of the octahedral 2a and the basal sites of the pyramidal 2b, with water molecules that complete the coordination sphere in each case. Electrochemical studies using cyclic voltammetry showed a reversible redox behavior of the copper(II) in 1 and 2. The electronic spectroscopic behavior and the trend of one electron equivalent redox potential corresponding to a CuII/CuI couple have also been confirmed by density functional theory calculations. The spectroscopic and viscosity measurement study in tris–HCl buffer suggested an intercalative interaction of 1a and 2 with calf thymus DNA likely due to the stacking between the non-coordinated furan and thiophene chromophore with the base pairs of DNA.
