Organotin(IV) complexes of biologically active Schiff bases derived from heterocyclic ketones and sulpha drugs



Some new hexa-coordinated organotin complexes [Bu2Sn(NN)2] (where NN is the anion of various Schiff bases) have been synthesized and characterized on the basis of elemental analysis, conductivity measurements, molecular weight determination, and ultraviolet, infrared and multinuclear magnetic resonance (1H, 13C and 119Sn) spectral studies. A few representative complexes have also been screened for their antibacterial and antifungal activity and found to be quite active in this respect. Copyright © 1999 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
