COMPARATIVE SYNTHESIS, SPECTRAL AND ANTIMICROBIAL STUDIES OF METAL (II) COMPLEXES DERIVED FROM ASPIRIN
AbstractThe objective of this research work is to compare the findings of the two techniques of synthesis (solid state and solution based synthesis) in order to know whether the two results are similar or not and also to determine if the introduction of the metal ion increase or decrease the activity of the drug. From the spectral studies, it revealed that the ligand act as bidentate which coordinated to the central metal through the carbonyl of acid and ester. The elemental analysis data agreed with the proposed structure of the complexes and revealed the ratio of 2:1. Bacterial activity test shows the increase in activity from the complexes compared with the free ligand. The authors recommend the application of solid state synthesis as the method also provide the same or better result than the solution based synthesis and also the solid state method is more effective and greener synthesis.
