Abstract

Metal complexes derived from amides; N,N'-bis(2-thiophenecarboxamido)-1,3-diamino propane (1) and N,N'-bis(2-furancarboxamido)-1,3-diaminopropane (2) were characterized by elemental analysis, spectral (NMR, FT-IR, LC-MS) methods, magnetic moment, molar conductance, and TGA/DTA studies. The complexes were dimeric and have the general formula [ML center dot Cl-m center dot(H2O)(n)]2Cl(2) where M=Cu(II), Zn(II), Co(III); m = 1, 2; n = 0, 1. The antimicrobial activities of the amides and their complexes were studied against the bacteria; Escherichia coli (ATCC 11230), Yersinia enterocolitica (ATCC 1501), Bacillus magaterium (RSKK 5117), Bacillus cereus (RSKK 863), Bacillus subtilis (RSKK 863) and yeast; Candida albicans (ATCC 10239).
