    The free drug tenoxicam (Tenox) had no inhibitory activity towards the fungal strain Candida albicans. The complex of Tenox with Sr(II) ion exhibited marked inhibitory effect on the cell growth of this strain. The potency of the Sr(II)-Tenox complex is 16% greater than that of the standard drug Amphotericin B against this fungal strain.

  2. Application of 2-(benzyliminomethyl)-6-methoxy-4-(4-methoxyphenyl-azo)phenol in construction of ion-selective PVC membrane electrode for determination of copper (II) in mineral water sample

    The efficient and accurate determination of copper (II) ions in mineral water samples is achieved when 2-(benzyliminomethyl)-6-methoxy-4-(4-methoxyphenyl-azo) phenol is used as ionophore in construction of copper (II) ion selective PVC membrane electrode. The supreme ability of the electrode as an indicator electrode for titration of Cu2+ solution with EDTA solution is also approved.

  3. Synthesis, characterization and biological screening studies of mixed ligand complexes using flavonoids as precursors

    Jeyaraman Porkodi and Natarajan Raman

    Version of Record online: 20 SEP 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/aoc.4030

    Thumbnail image of graphical abstract

    A new series of transition mixed ligand complexes are synthesized by incorporating curcumin and quercetin flavonoid precursors and characterized by spectral and analytical data. Based on the in silico study, the curcumin Schiff base and the metal complexes are recognized as anti-inflammatory, antioxidants and antimicrobial agents. Copper(II) complex has praiseworthy biochemical silhouette.

  4. Preparation of magnetically recyclable ZnFe2O4 nanoparticles by easy single-step co-precipitation method and their catalytic performance in the synthesis of 2-aminothiophenes

    N. Erfaninia, R. Tayebee, E.L. Foletto, M.M. Amini, M. Dusek and F.M. Zonoz

    Version of Record online: 20 SEP 2017 | DOI: 10.1002/aoc.4047

    ZnFe2O4 nanocomposite as an efficient, low-cost and environmental benign catalyst for the synthesis of substituted 2-aminothiophenes with good generality and high yields at short reaction times.

  5. Synthesis and characterization of antibacterial chromium iron oxide nanoparticle-loaded activated carbon for ultrasound-assisted wastewater treatment

    The surface adsorption capacity of CrFeO3 nanoparticles-loaded activated carbon (CrFeO3-NPs–AC) for the removal of cationic dye (methyl violet; MV) was studied. CrFeO3-NPs were hydrothermally synthesized and loaded on activated carbon (AC) followed by their test for in-vitro antibacterial activities against gram-positive (Staphylococcus aureus) and gram-negative (Pseudomonas aeruginosa) bacteria.
