    A successful ecological method for the synthesis of palladium nanoparticles (Pd NPs) using Hibiscus sabdariffa L. flower extract is reported, the NPs being efficient nanocatalyst in the Suzuki coupling reaction.

  2. Some divalent metal(II) complexes of novel potentially tetradentate Schiff base N,N′-bis(2-carboxyphenylimine)-2,5-thiophenedicarboxaldhyde: Synthesis, spectroscopic characterization and bioactivities

    Novel mononuclear, four coordinated Co(II), Ni(II), Cu(II) and Zn(II) complexes were synthesized via thermal reaction of their metal acetate salts with the novel tetradentate Schiff base N,N′-(1-carboxyphenylimine)-2,5-thiophenedicarboxaldhyde. Investigation of antioxidation properties, binding with calf thymus DNA and DNA cleavage properties of the novel compounds suggested possible utilization of novel compounds for pharmaceutical applications.

  3. Plasmonic Ag/AgCl-modified bismuth subcarbonate with enhanced visible light photocatalytic activity

    The enhanced photocatalytic activity of plasmonic Ag/AgCl/Bi2O2CO3 may be attributed to the surface plasmon resonance effect of in situ generated Ag nanoparticles and synergistic effect of Ag/AgCl and Bi2O2CO3, which increase the separation efficiency of photogenerated electron–hole pairs under visible light irradiation.

  4. Biocatalysis, DNA–protein interactions, cytotoxicity and molecular docking of Cu(II), Ni(II), Zn(II) and V(IV) Schiff base complexes

    Four mononuclear metal complexes containing a Schiff base ligand (2,2'-{cyclohexane-1,2-diylbis[nitrilo(1E)eth-1-yl-1-ylidine]}bis[5-(prop-2-yn-1-yloxy)phenol])] have been synthesized and characterized. Bio-catalytic and DNA/protein interactions of these metal complexes were evaluated. In vitro cytotoxicity of metal complexes were studied against MCF7 and MIA-PA-CA-2 cell lines.

  5. Synthesis, characterization and biological evaluation of Ru(III) mercaptopyrimidine Schiff base complexes

    Four new biologically active Ru(III) mercaptopyrimidine Schiff base complexes were synthesized and characterized. Biological activity includes antimicrobial, anticancer, antituberculosis and antioxidant activities. DNA binding and cleavage studies were conducted along with molecular docking studies. DFT was used to optimize the geometry and calculate HOMO–LUMO gap.
